Responding to Congress leader and advocate Kapil Sibbal’s statement on Pandit Nehru’s views of the sedition law, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta told Supreme Court yesterday that the government is doing what Pandit Nehru could not do.

Arguing in the court, Sibal had said Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru said that this provision is obnoxious and that the sooner we get rid of sedition, the better during the hearing of the petition filed by the Editors’ Guild of India, Trinamool MP Mahua Moitra and others challenging the sedition law.

A three-judge bench of Chief Justices NV Ramana, Surya Kant and Hima Kohli heard the arguments.

Responding to Solicitor General Mehta’s comment, Sibbal said, the government is supporting the law and saying all is good. Affection cannot be manufactured. One should be free to express disaffection, so long as there is no incitement to violence, Sibal further said.

In the latest development, the Supreme Court today ordered that the sedition law will be paused until the government completes its review. Those already facing sedition charges can approach courts for bail, the apex court said. The Centre had earlier noted its decision to re-examine and reconsider the sedition law by an appropriate forum.
