Abstract

Recent sedition cases registered in India show that the law in its wide and diverse deployment was used against agitators in a community-based pro-reservation movement, a group of university students for their alleged 'anti-national' statements, and also against the anti-liquor activists and anti-nuclear movements, to name a few. Examining the relationship between sedition and liberal democracies, particularly in India, this book looks at the biography of sedition laws, its contradictory position against free speech and democratic ethics.
