Some people believe that punishment is the only purpose of prisons while others believe that prisons exist for various reasons. Discuss both views and give your opinion.


People have different views about prison’s establishment. There is a school of thought which contends that the sole purpose of prison is to use it as punishment centre. Conversely, others argue that there are considerable whys and wherefores of prison’s existence. To my way of thinking, I have to agree with latter view.

To begin with, there are good arguments for using prisons for penalties only. Firstly, offenders pose a serious threat to community and they need severe punishments. Secondly, if governments do not lock criminals into cells from innocent junta then they will be under constant fear. For example, it would be difficult for common man if rapists and murderers are living next to his doors instead of in jails. Thus, the prisons should be used only to keep criminals where they have no meaningful activities to perform apart from serving sentence.

At the other end of the spectrum, it is certainly true that to reduce crimes and violence, authorities need to educate offenders. The perfect place to provide education to criminals is the prison. For instance, my close relative was sentenced for one year in Tihar jail when he committed multiple thefts. At the same time, he received valuable lessons about life in jail’s rehabilitation centre. When he came out, this learning helped him to transform into a good citizen. It is clear that prisons can serve great purpose to society when they are used to steer criminals in right direction as well.

At the end of the day, I pen down saying that multipurpose prison system would be more meaningful to nations. It is hoped that more and more countries will appreciate the idea of using prisons as rehabilitation centre as well to reduce crimes and improve sense of security.
