Laws are rules and regulations that are formed by the government of a nation for its citizens to follow. Law for any country is not an option it is a necessity. Law ensures a crime-free society and protects every citizen of a country. There is this segment of people who have different perspectives about some laws. They view them as hurdles to lead a free life. But there is no second thought on the fact that strict enforcement of laws is necessary to protect the rights of people. Here are some of the countries with very strict laws.
