The people are happy for them and their families but they are not grateful or thankful to the home minister for the release. They should not be incarnated in the first place, the ISA must be abolished. Even if the home minister were to release all the ISA detainees, which is wrong in the first place, without abolishing the ISA act, the people will still keep on protesting until it is repeal.
