Why the sedition law still exists, with Chitranshul Sinha

These days, the word ‘sedition’ is often used interchangeably with ‘anti-national’. And it seems that everyone from cartoonists, university students and journalists to anti-mining activist, maoist and tribal rights activists, are being booked for sedition – something that presumably shakes the very foundation of a state. In this episode, Sandip talks to writer and Supreme Court lawyer Chitranshul Sinha about what exactly is the sedition law, how it originated and why it still exists in the 21st century.
