Having officially worked for prisoners from close quarters, I found that owing to hatred against them, there is nobody to hear their cry for help. Not just that, I also found numerous violations of human rights of prisoners by some of the State agencies in total ignorance, if not deliberate disregard of the laudatory judicial pronouncements aimed at upholding the rule of law by protecting the fundamental rights of prisoners. I felt a need to consolidate the necessary material for awareness of those who deal with this ?discarded section of human beings'. The predominant paradigm here is not the advocacy for rights of the prisoners in abstract, but campaign to uphold their fundamental rights and consequently, ensure the rule of law. Failure to protect fundamental rights of prisoners would be failure to ensure the rule of law. With this concept in mind, I worked on this book across a period of about three years.
