Watch | Hamara Samvidhan: Article 19 (Freedom of Press and Right To Dissent)

Citing various judgments, advocate Avani Bansal explains a key section of Article 19 of the Indian constitution in today's episode.

In this second video on Article 19, advocate Avani Bansal explains the significance of the right to freedom of the press enshrined in this article of our constitution. The government does not impose pre-censorship or post-censorship on newspapers. It also cannot impose its opinion or prevent editors from expressing their opinion.

Any kind of restriction on the press and media or a policy by which it becomes subject to the government is thus unconstitutional.
