[rti_india] Re: RTI Activist Amit Jethwa shot dead


While the news is no doubt disturbing, it cannot be denied
that professional "RTI Rambos" or habitual RTI "One man armies"
are bringing a bad name to all RTI users.


If there is a moral in this, it is to use RTI responsibly
and refrain from using RTI against individuals, since RTI is
a very weak weapon and the Govt is not going to provide
any protection to RTI users. The RTI Act gives a false
sense of superiority and invincibility to users, and our
members must be vigilant not to fall victim to such

We must also wait to learn if this shooting is the outcome
of the RTIs / Writs Amit Jethwa filed, or is connected with
other activities of the unfortunate victim.
