Don't worry. Breaking someone's leg is covered by criminal law where I live (and in most places I suppose), so doesn't have to be covered by Laws of Badminton :-) which is about badminton-specific actions, after all. The umpire can call the police, if needed, which I hope never happens.

i'm a left handed person, and I grip my racket on my left hand,, when the shuttle goes in my back then right side, i definitely use backhand, and when player use their backhand striking the shuttle behind them, they are half looking to the opponent's court.
but when i use my right forehand, i easily manage to hit the shuttle and look for the area where i wanted to land it.
it's another forehand smash, drive, or any crosscourt shot using my right hand.
and another reason is to be unique.. hehe
I hope i can do it.
Please correct me if I'm wrong in my conclusion, or what I'm going to do.

4.3.1 "...or to secure the handle by cord to the player’s hand..." Is my english wrong, one hand, two .....???
The problem of shifting left/right, is first security, to dangerous to have a racket flying in the air, therefore I it should not be legal IMO!
Secondly, the higher level you play, speed becomes a more important issue, shifting it simply takes to much time.
Also it is double work training both arms and different footwork, balance, eye coordinating to make the shuttle precise, make it spin, "cut", tricks, and so forth!

Now I realize the trouble that can be cause in shifting racket.
maybe sometimes in playing specially when speed comes,,
maybe there a time comes that somehow i can't manage to hardly grip that
rackets when it shift from my left hand to my right.
or perhaps the judge somehow will think the possibility that it can occur.
Thank you again,,
Have a good day

An implicit rule to prevent dangerous situations
I think there is an implicit rule to prevent dangerous situations to occur when a match is being played.
Therefore, I am sure that an umpire and/or a tournament referee would step in to stop a player incompetent playing with 2 rackets, one in each hand.
On the subject of "breaking our opponent's legs", there is a rule stating that our racket can swing over the net into our opponents' court space (as for the follow-through of our racket swing), but not under the net into our opponents' court space.

Compare to Stick-Fighting sports
Hahaha...... Probably, you have not participated in Stick-Fighting sports before.
If one is incompetent using 2 sticks; when one is paying attention to the stick held in one hand and forgetting the stick held in the other hand, one can sometimes hit/injured oneself, instead of hitting one's opponent.

lol Monkeys would be great players, holdning rackets with their feet too

Well there is allways rule 16.6.4 to prevent anything the umpire/referee dosn't like

I kind of like the idea of monkeys as superior players because of their built-in four-handedness : )
Possibly, stretching the rules to the limit, you might find a way to attach a monkey to your back. All together you would have a total of six rackets rushing shuttles down to the floor (if you would use your both hands plus the four hands/feet of your pal)). What a perfet doubles net partner!
I can image the umpire calling: "You should really get that monkey off your back"
