We are facing challenge to our democracy. Apparently it is from blood less revolt by civil society now and by other groups like Naxals before; but it is not a case. Our democracy is facing long standing challenges of credibility from its most visible face, our political representatives and their way of functioning.
Today, after more than 60 of Indian independence, there is much talk about sedition and other laws in force. This time no one is talking about draconian laws like MISA, TADA, POTA, and UAPA. There is consensus amongst civil liberty activists that everyone know about these draconian laws and there widespread misuse all over India. After so – called conviction of Dr. Binayak Sen, focus has been shifted to general criminal laws like one for sedition and its potential misuses. Misuses of these laws generally do not attract attentions of general public and activists, and victim of these misuses silently suffer.
In ordinary criminal law i.e. Indian Penal Code sedition is defined as to bring or attempts to bring into hatred or contempt, or excites or attempts to excite disaffection towards the Government established by law in India.
