    Legal Probs

    Sedition – Whoever by words signs or otherwise brings into hatred or contempt or excites disaffection towards the government established by law in India shall be punished with imprisonment for life.

    In a public meeting, Yashraj, a known public speaker thunders, “This is a government of rascals, inefficient administrators, bootleggers and scamsters. They deserve to be unseated. They have destroyed the economy and made the borders of the country porous to the terrorists. Teach them a lesson in the coming elections by voting them out of power.” The government is contemplating to prosecute Yashraj.
    a.Yashraj is guilty of sedition for having made irresponsible and inflammatory statements against the government.
    b.Yashraj is not guilty of sedition as he is only exercising his freedom of speech in public.
    c.Yashraj is guilty of sedition, as his statement would incite people to violence leading to breakdown of law and order.
    d.None of these.

    The answer to this question would be (b). He would not be liable to get punished for a simple reason. It is a common practice among various political parties to utter something against their opponent.This can be seen at various places, BJP leaders uttering something against UPA govt or something else. These kind of activity comes under Right to Freedom of speech.

    Ok thnx a lot for your assistance.

    Just one more question which was buzzing in my mind these days is that if attempt to suicide is still a criminal wrong in India, then why Anna Hazare was not arrested when he was sitting on Hunger till Death strike.....??

    Ill answer from social point of view. Abhinav will answer from Legal point of view later.

    Basically, Goverenment has no guts. Seeing the Polls in Assam, West Bengal, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. This is just a bid to buy time. Laughing

    Plus even if a new bill is drafted and passed, then too nothing much gonna happen. Our country has laws which are good enough. What we lack is Political Will.

    If there is no ambiguity in Law. Who will hire you people? Lawyers will be jobless.

    Fasting does not relate to suicide. I also kept fast on 5th April. You see over the years, women have been observing fasts during Navratras for 9 days.

    Corruption is an incurable global phenomenon. Neutral
