Torture is the action or practice of inflicting severe pain, whether physical or mental, on someone as a punishment or to force them to get the acquired information. It is also used by psychotic people to obtain the pleasure by inflicting the pain. Reasons for torture can include punishment, revenge, political reeducation and interrogation to extract information. The torture debate, however, is hugely controversial subject in modern society.
