Watch | Biggest Blow to Modi Govt as SC Stalls the Usage of Sedition Law

The Wire's Arfa Khanum Sherwani discusses the Supreme Court order on sedition with lawyers Prashant Bhushan and Ansar Indori.

Listen to this article:

A special bench of the Supreme Court has said they expect the Central and state governments to refrain from registering any first information report, continuing the investigation or taking coercive steps under Section 124A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code as it’s subject to reconsideration. It would be appropriate that this provision of the law should not be used until its review, they added.

The Wire’s senior editor Arfa Khanum Sherwani discussed this issue with Supreme Court lawyers Prashant Bhushan and Ansar Indori.
