BREAKING: OPIndia, Indic Collective Trust and Upword Foundation seek to intervene in the @SudarshanNewsTV case in SC. Asks whether its constitutionally permissible for SC to judicially legislate a new species of impermissible speech,
namely Hate Speech? @OpIndia_com @jsaideepak
Plea says assuming the authority finds nothing objectionable with the content under the applicable law, does any statute or the Constitution itself permit Constitutional Courts to step into the shoes of the State to restrain the broadcast of such content? #SupremeCourt
In the backdrop of the #UPSC_Jihad case, "neither morals nor laws can or must be laid down in vacuum. After all, they do not operate in vacuum and must, therefore, be informed
by experience."

Centre files additional Affidavit before SC in #SudarshanNews matter.

The self-regulatory mechanism for redressal of complaints in case of all the aforesaid organisations are, by and large, effective and ensures impartiality: Centre

When complaints are received in the Ministry with regard to violation of Programme and Advertising Codes, the same are sent to the self-regulating bodies for addressing the grievances.

However, in respect of TV channels which are not members of the self-regulating bodies, the matter is taken up directly by the Ministry.
