‘Cheap’ award A senior official in the Modi government was miffed to learn that the prestigious Padma awards are made of much cheaper material than the less-coveted Pravasi Bharatiya awards given recently The Padma awards are fashioned out of brass while the Pravasi awards meant for outstanding foreigners of Indian origin are made of 22-carat gold It is calculated that the cost of the handsome award is some Rs 275 lakh while the Padma award is worth around Rs 200 in pure monetary terms PMO’s desire thwarted This year the PMO and Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs were keen to bestow a

the test of time and the courts have restricted its application to serious acts that incite violence or create a major law and order problem Related News The immediate fallout of the recentarrest of Kanhaiya Kumar an All India Students Federation leader and presidentof the JNU students’ union was the demand to abolish Section 124A of the IndianPenal Code 1860 (IPC) as being an abhorrent colonial legacy The electronic and print media have reacted as if Kanhaiya Kumar has been convicted and punished under this section The fact is that a complaint was lodged that alleges Kumar’s conduct was seditious Does this justify a call for the abolition of this provision This article doesn’t discuss the correctness of the JNU arrests as the matter is in court; it only submits that there’s a strong case to retain Section 124A Chapter Six of the IPC is titled “Offences against the state” and originally consisted of Sections 121-130 which included the offences of waging war against the government of India and among other things collecting arms with the intention of waging such war Interestingly Section 124A was Section 113 of Macaulay’s Draft Penal Code of 1837-39 but was inexplicably omitted when the IPC was enacted in 1860 Section 124A was inserted in 1870 by an amendment introduced by Sir James Stephen The section in its original form was invoked in the celebrated case of Queen Empress vs Bal Gangadhar Tilak in 1897 Soon thereafter the section was redrafted and it now reads: “124A Sedition — Whoever by words either spoken or written or by signs or by visible representation or otherwise brings or attempts to bring into hatred or contempt or excites or attempts to excite disaffection towards the Government established by law in India shall be punished with imprisonment for life to which fine may be added or with imprisonment which may extend to three years to which fine may be added or with fine Explanation 1 The expression ‘disaffection’ includes disloyalty and all feelings of enmity Explanation 2 Comments expressing disapprobation of the measures of the Government with a view to obtain their alteration by lawful means without exciting or attempting to excite hatred contempt or disaffection do not constitute an offence under this section Explanation 3 Comments expressing disapprobation of the administrative or other action of the Government without exciting or attempting to excite hatred contempt or disaffection do not constitute an offence under this section” The Federal Court in Niharendu Dutt Majumdar vs The King Emperor (1942) understood the dangers of misusing this section and made it clear that the section could not be used to stifle criticism Interestingly this decision was rendered in 1942 and at the height of World War II Sir Maurice Gwyer observed that the use of violent frothy and irresponsible language in a speech cannot be termed as sedition He said: “There is an English saying that hard words break no bones; and the wisdom of common law has long refused to regard as actionable any words which though strictly and literally defamatory would be regarded by reasonable men as no more than mere vulgar abuse Abusive language even when used about a Government is not necessarily sedition and there are certain words and phrases which have so long become the stock-in-trade of the demagogue as almost to have lost all real meaning” This sensible interpretation was reversed by the Privy Council in 1947 (King Emperor vs Sadashiv Narayan Bhalerao) which adopted the narrow view taken by Justice Strachey in the Tilak trial Mercifully in 1962 the Supreme Court restored the view of the Federal Court while expressly holding that Section 124A was not violative of the fundamental right to free speech and expression under Article 19(1)(a) This section would apply only to those activities involving incitement to violence or intention to create public disorder or cause disturbance of public order (Kedar Nath Singh vs State of Bihar) The day after the assassination of Indira Gandhi two persons raised slogans of “Khalistan zindabad” and “Raj karega Khalsa” The Supreme Court acquitted the accused observing that the raising of some slogans a few times which did not evoke any response and did not create any law and order problem did not attract Section 124A The court rightly observed that sometimes the arrest of individuals rather than the slogans shouted could lead to tension and a law and order problem and cautioned that over-sensitiveness could be counter-productive Indeed the explanations to Section 124A make it clear that criticism or disapproval of actions of the government do not amount to sedition The Law Commission of India had undertaken a careful re-examination of Section 124A In its 42nd report published in 1971 it wanted the section to be extended to include disaffection towards the Constitution of India Parliament and state legislatures and the administration of justice It also wanted the punishment to be reduced to a maximum of seven years While the sentence can be restricted to seven years there is no reason to expand the ambit of the definition The present section has stood the test of time and the courts have restricted its application to serious acts that incite violence or create a major law and order problem Indeed the call for its abolition may be incorrect There is no data on the number of complaints that have been filed under this section in different states What were the seditious utterances or activities How many persons have been convicted Without an analysis of the empirical evidence on the implementation of this section it would be perilous to abolish it as an anachronistic colonial provision We cannot forget that dozens of districts in different states face a Maoist insurgency and rebel groups virtually run a parallel administration These groups openly advocate the overthrow of the state government by revolution Against the backdrop of this stark reality the abolition of Section 124A would be ill-advised merely because it has been wrongly invoked in some highly publicised cases The writer is a senior advocate For all the latest Opinion News download

have changed the course of political history in at least three ways The most crucial of these will remain invisible – the run-up to the next biennial elections to the Rajya Sabha Numbers in that house will crucially determine the elections for a new President and Vice-president in July-August 2017 That along with the government’s manoeuvrability in the Rajya Sabha will determine the extent to which the government could move towards any constitutional amendments Lalu Prasad (left) and Nitish Kumar have now assumed important roles in national politics IBNLive Members of the Rajya Sabha are elected (a third of them every two years) by state assembly members across the country Bihar’s assembly is one of the bigger contributors of votes in those indirect elections A large NDA contingent from Bihar could have contributed to changing the complexion of Parliament’s House of States – and the government’s legislative capacity Amending the Constitution requires two-thirds votes in both houses The Vice-President is elected by a majority of members in both houses The ruling coalition is unlikely now to have that majority Even shakier will be its position in the Electoral College for the election of the President of the republic MPs of both houses and members of all state legislatures vote in that election – the weight of MPs’ votes being equal to the weight of MLAs votes combined Bihar has a substantial number of MPs and MLAs It is now less likely than before that the prime minister will be able to install a President of his choice Needless to say the President’s signature is essential to all laws and amendments The second way in which these results will affect national politics is by immediately weakening Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah both within their party and among their coalition allies While the Bihar votes were still being counted a party MLA from their home state Gujarat raised questions publicly about the party’s leadership And it might have been interesting to have listened in on Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s meeting with the RSS chief while counting trends were emerging Rajnath was the previous party president and his endorsement of Modi’s candidature led to the rise of the Modi-Shah duo Soon after the new government took over Singh chafed under the humiliation of media reports (evidently planted by another senior colleague) about his son being questioned by the prime minister He is unlikely to have forgotten that If there is unease within the ruling party it is likely to remain under wraps for the moment But the arrogance with which the Modi-Shah duo treated NDA allies such as the Shiv Sena has already come home to roost A leader of that party was quick to squarely and publicly blame Modi for the debacle The BJP may now have strong reason to regret having allowed a scandal to go unchallenged a few months ago over Maharashtra stalwart Sharad Pawar’s alleged soft line towards Dawood Ibrahim The third major impact of the Bihar results is the most obvious The national opposition has been energized Immediately after his Bihar victory Lalu Prasad spoke of bringing down the government at `Hastinapur’ (the Delhi of the Mahabharata’s Kauravas) The opposition should not allow the `fascist regime’ to continue for even a day he said Lalu is likely to now see himself as a prime ministerial candidate for 2019 His party emerged with the largest tally in Bihar but he vouchsafed support for incumbent Chief Minister Nitish Kumar of the Janata Dal United to lead the state government For his part the latter deflected a media question to Lalu about 2019 Each of them could be positioning himself for the top job The big question that the results have thrown up is whether non-NDA parties will ally with the Congress for 2019 or form another `third front’ to compete against both the BJP and the Congress Although the JDU and the RJD’s alliance with the Congress proved a great success in Bihar parties such as the Biju Janata Dal in Orissa the Telugu Desam in Seemandhra and the Left (now reduced to a mainly Kerala party) cannot ally with the Congress which is their chief rival in their respective home states Even before alliances for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections a big question will need to be addressed about an alliance for the Uttar Pradesh elections of 2017 Not only is UP India’s biggest state the BJP swept ninety per cent of the state’s 80 Lok Sabha seats last year That was Amit Shah’s ticket to taking over the party – and the BJP’s Lok Sabha majority On the other hand Mulayam Singh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party won a handsome victory in the previous UP assembly elections Mulayam Singh already sees himself as a prime ministerial candidate So could the other major UP leader Mayawati of the Bahajun Samaj Party if anti-incumbency and a suitable alliance bring her back to power in UP in 2017 Either of those leading UP parties could ally with the Congress possibly even with each other On the other hand the SP’s withdrawal from the `grand alliance’ a little before the Bihar elections led to speculation about its covert ties with the BJP A lot is now up in the air Bihar has brought the country’s
