The Indian Journalist Union welcomed the suspension of sedition law by the Supreme Court

In a statement issued on 12 May, 2022 IJU President K. Sreenivas Reddy and Secretary General Balwinder Singh Jammu reminded that many journalists who were critical of the ruling political dispensation were jailed under 124A of IPC despite the limitation prescribed by the Apex Court in 1962. Criminalising free speech is untenable in democracies, they avered.

The fact that about 13,000 persons are in jail under 124A is hard evidence to the rampant misuse of the British era law. The IJU leaders hoped that as the government has expressed it's intention to revisit the colonial era law it would soon be consigned to history books. Thanking you
