'Used by British to silence Mahatma Gandhi, is it still needed?': SC on sedition law

Sedition Law Supreme Court Hearing Update: The Supreme Court on Thursday described the sedition law as 'colonial' and as one which was used by the British against Mahatma Gandhi while issuing a notice to the Centre. Hearing a plea seeking to strike down Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code which criminalises the offence of sedition, the apex court questioned the need of such a law even after 75 years of Independence.
