The Fight against global terrorism is creating it ?

"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood"

- Artcle 1 in United Nations Universal Declaration of human rights (UDHR)

Is this a mere academic statement ? . How much of it, is practiced in global context ? Recently , Human Rights watch ,published a detailed documentation about how criminal prosecution has been done on some developed countries to innocent terrorist, suspect, with using minimal evidence. See the report

The fight against global terrorism should not create the same, in any form . That is the sure way to make us defeated , in the war against global terrorism. The effect of an innocent , getting punished, by loosely defined terrorism laws is severe. Rather then decreasing the participation of civil society in terrorist outfits, it could increase it . By any means there has to be substantial legal reforms, globally ,that innocent doesn't get punished . This should be the objective of any juidicial system throughout the world.
