  • In the intro, mention briefly about sedition and applicability of Section 124A of IPC.
  • In the body, mention the issue such as conflict with the fundamental rights and freedom under Article 19, lack of provision for sedition as a reasonable restriction, lack of clarity on terms used in the Section and misuse by authority etc. In the suggestion mention striking down the Section, restriction the private complaints by citizens and authorising only senior officers to take action.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need to reflect on whether India after 75 years of independence needs sedition provision.
