Vital intervention: On the Supreme Court order against hate speech

  • Published
    26th Oct, 2022

Context:

With the recent increase in the number of instances, the Supreme Court has referred to the growing “climate of hate”, and taken note of the ‘inaction’ in most instances, despite the law containing provisions to deal with the phenomenon.

Need for Supreme Court’s intervention:

  • Maintaining Law and Order: SC’s intervention has become necessary in the light of some controversial leaders getting away lightly after making unacceptable comments, some of them tinged with a genocidal tenor. 
  • To rectify the government’s actions: It is quite apparent that the government does not share the Court’s concern for communal harmony, fraternity, and tranquillity. Few States may be contributing to the vitiated atmosphere either by studied inaction or complicity.
