“Mentor’s Comments”

  • https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/lead/the-law-of-sedition-is-unconstitutional/article35027081.ece
  • In the intro, mention recent judgments on the use of section 124A in which the courts expressed concerns.
  • In the body, mention the colonial background of the section, three explanations given in the sections and the inability of these explanations to define the ambit of the term sedition and reconciling it with the freedom of speech and expression under Article 19 (1)(a). Next, mention the lack of protection to sedition under Article 19(2). Also mention Kedar Nath case and use of the term ‘tendency to cause to create public disorder leaves room for misuse.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need for an urgent review of Kedar Nath judgement by a larger Bench.
