Dear Law Commission, Government is for the people and by the people. So, one can't critize Government?

State comprises of Population, Land, Government and Sovereignty. Constitution of India itself gives right to criticise itself.

So, what is unquestionable?

Treachery, Leaking Confidential Information, Posing Threat to State already have other laws and punishments

The Law Commision wishes that like Tilak, people should again suffer due to the conservation of colonial and draconian law?

Sedition should be completely repealed

Pleas challenging Section 124A of IPC (#SeditionLaw) before the #SupremeCourt.

CJI DY Chandrachud: The government was reconsidering provisions. What's their stand?

Adv Kanu Agarwal: The Solicitor has to be here for this.

#Sedition #SupremeCourt #SupremeCourtOfIndia Image
Sr Adv Arvind Datar: What is also to be seen is whether the matter is to be before 7 judges or not. The Kedarnath judgement poses a hurdle, it was a 5 judge bench case.

CJI DY Chandrachud: Let the Solicitor come and we'll see what instructions have been taken. Keep Kedarnath ready. We'll pass it over for now.

#JustIn | Section 124-A, of the Pakistan Penal Code [#Sedition law] STRUCK DOWN by #LahoreHighCourt.
Justice Shahid Karim of the #LahoreHighCourt invalidated the #SeditionLaw while dealing with a batch of petitions seeking to annul the Section 124A of Pakistan Penal Code.

Good morning to everyone except the treasonous seditionists, coup-plotters, domestic terrorists, and fascists.

Did you know that Missouri AG @Eric_Schmitt’s loyalty to Trump means he supports 5 out of 5 of these things??

That’s not propaganda— here are the receipts:

🧵 /1 Image
@AGEricSchmitt has pledged total loyalty to Trump and the #MAGA agenda, and has even intervened in his legal defense to show his unwavering support of Trump to the judges overseeing the prosecutions of his cases.

And Trump is guilty of all 5 offenses.

Let’s take a look /2
TREASON: Donald Trump attempted to overthrow the government, and gave aid and comfort to domestic enemies who participated on #Jan6.

Before, during, and after Jan 6, Trump conspired to coordinate with the insurrectionists and planners. /3…

🚨BREAKING: Prosecutors informed 16 Trump supporters who formed an FAKE slate of 2020 electors from #Georgia that they may face CRIMINAL charges, underscoring the risk of criminal charges that Trump and his cronies may face.……
The target letters—signaling imminent CRIMINAL charges of Trump’s cronies—were sent by #Georgia’s Fulton County DA @FaniWillisForDA.

And she’s not done yet.😎

🔥“This is a sign of a dramatic acceleration of her work,” as prosecutors typically work their way “up the food chain, so usually the first wave of target letters is not the last.” ~@NormOrnstein special counsel to the @HouseJudiciary Committee during the 1st Trump #impeachment.

It’s noteworthy #NevrePoilievre marched with ubiquitous & extremely dodgy character, Paul Alexander. Many have heard his name by now, but it’s important to note how Alexander keeps turning up. He wasn’t just a Trump appointee, he was handpicked by Michael Caputo. #Freedumbers
Michael Caputo created controversy, even within the Trump administration. Caputo has ties to both Putin & Roger Stone. So how he came to personally pluck Alexander, an obscure part-time instructor in 🇨🇦, to help him bully scientists at #HHS, is still a mystery to me. #cdnpoli
Paul Alexander shows up again & again. He was a central figure in #FluTruxKlan 1, & shows up again in #CoupTruxKlan 2.0. #cdnpoli #FreeDumbConvoy

Supreme Court directs Centre to not file any cases involving #SeditionLaw

The order was passed by a bench of Chief Justice of India NV Ramana and Justices Surya Kant and Hima Kohli.
“We hope and trust Centre and State refrain from registering any FIRs [first information reports] invoking Section 124A IPC [#SeditionLaw],” the SC said.

“It will be appropriate not to use this provision of law till further re-examination is over.”
During today's hearing, the Centre had told the Supreme Court that staying provisions of #SeditionLaw till the pleas challenging its constitutional validity are being reviewed may not be the “correct approach”.
