At various instances

At various instances, Torture has been used to destroy the autonomy of the victim. Various societies misuse torture as a tool to suppress free thinking and impose their intellect on what they call “right-thinking”. The individual is tortured until they come to terms which says them to forfeit their individual views and perspectives and accept those of the torturer. The victim should not be tortured must be an inalienable human right. This right is as fundamental as the right to living since the life of a victim of Torture is as worse as dead.Charles krauthammer.(2005:12)

With every increasing act of torture, the convict becomes more assured of no interrogation and become bold of committing a crime. There is also another disturbing result which may happen. A criminal may produce wrong information under the pain of torture which may, in turn, make scenario worst than ever as under pain there may be wrong contemplations of mind producing false information. This will never embed a thought to stop torturing the convict in the mind of the interrogator and thus the interrogator will never be sure when to stop. There are effective methods available for interrogation which does not involve torturing at all. British common law excludes involuntary statements or confessions on the ground that such evidence is inherently unreliable. An act of torture by the interrogator severely affects the humanity of the torturer making him insentient to the pains of others. Thus an act of torture may cause complete loss of the sensitivity of the torturer towards life. The more acts of torture a person carries out, the more likely they are to carry out torture. Moreover, Torture also affects the institution that carries it out. It tarnishes the fame and morality of the institution. Torturing can cause internal disharmony in the institution and so may cause severe loss of integrity of the institution. Also use of torture gives a chance to the enemies of the institution to play their dirty politics
