In all these matters I keep in mind the famous analogy. A prisoner when he
breaks out of the prison it is considered a crime. He/she will be
prosecuted and punished.

On the other hand, if there is fire in the prison, it is the duty of the
prisoner to break out of the prison and he will not be prosecuted for doing

So in every situation "all" factors come into play when any action takes
place. So who can judge?
