commissioner (markets department) of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and senior inspector of the MRA police station which is near Crawford market to keep a strict vigil and ensure that the illegal sale of animals by pet shops in the market is stopped The court said that if non-compliance by the BMC officer and the police is reported to the court action would be taken against them A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice G S Kulkarni was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking closure of pet shops which sell birds and animals including exotic species at Crawford Market The petition also seeks criminal action against their owners for cruelty to animals and illegal trade Pointing to the affidavits filed by the state government and the BMC the court said that the reply by them indicated that none of the authorities were serious about taking action against the illegal sale of animals “Only in cases when it comes to their notice action of removing encroachments cancelling of licences and handing over animals to veterinary hospital is taken There is no systematic system to see that sale of animals is stopped” said the High Court Chief Justice Manjula Chellur further directed “We direct the assistant commissioner (markets department)and inspector of police MRA police station to keep a strict vigil and ensure eradication of illegal sale of animals in the market in question We also direct the under secretary and secretary of Maharashtra State Legal Services Authority to make surprise visits and submit a report along with photos

hearing in four weeks Besides animals birds such as koels jungle fowls macaws horn bill munias parakeets and mynahs are being openly sold in the market the petition added The PIL cited a 2014 Supreme Court judgment which says that Article 21 of the Constitution of India — Protection of life and personal liberty — applies not only to human beings but also to animals “Action should be such that not a single illegal sale takes place Such sale is happening right next to the Police Commissioner’s office” said the court mumbainewsline@expressindiacom For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian

needs to be cleared Under Macaulay’s penal code “sedition” was declared way back in the year 1898 as meaning: The bringing or attempting to bring into hatred or contempt (by words spoken or written or by signs or by visible representation or otherwise) “disaffection towards the government established by law” In British India the Federal Court had wisely said (way back in 1942) that it was not any want of affection for government that constituted the offence of sedition but “only such disaffection as was accompanied by an appeal to violence and a disruption of the public order” The essence of the offence the Federal Court said was “the disturbance of the peace and tranquillity of the state” READ:Sedition – SC’s shown the way but govts have refused to see But the wisdom of this decision of British India’s Federal Court was questioned and the decision was overruled five years later by the Privy Council then the last court of appeal Share This Article Related Article Lord Thankerton spoke for the Privy Council when he said: “The word ‘sedition’ does not occur in Section 124A it is only found as a marginal note to Section 124A and is not an operative part of the section but merely provides the name by which the crime defined in the section will be known There can be no justification for restricting the contents of the section by the marginal note In England there is no statutory definition of sedition; its meaning and content have been laid down in many decisions some of which are referred to by the chief justice of Bombay but these decisions are not relevant when you have a statutory definition of that which is termed sedition as we have in the present case Their lordships are unable to find anything in the language of Section 124A which could suggest that ‘the acts or words complained of must either incite to disorder or must be such as to satisfy reasonable men that that is their intention or tendency’ Explanation 1 to Section 124A provides ‘The expression “disaffection” includes disloyalty and all feelings of enmity’ This is quiteinconsistent with any suggestion that ‘excites or attempts to excite disaffection’ involves not only excitation of feelings of disaffection but also exciting disorder Their lordships are therefore of opinion that the decision of the Federal Court in AIR 1942 FC 22 proceeded on a wrong construction of Section 124A penal code” Fortunately for the people of India India’s Supreme Court when required to revisit previously decided cases — in 1962 when a challenge was made to the constitutional validity of the offence of sedition as incorporated in Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code — held that it preferred to follow the more liberal interpretation of the term “sedition” as given by the Federal Court in 1942 rather than the pedantic and strictly “colonial” interpretation of “sedition” rendered in the Privy Council opinion of 1947 Share This Article Related Article As a consequence “sedition” in India is not unconstitutional it remains an offence only if the words spoken or written are accompanied by disorder and violence and/ or incitement to disorder and violence Mere hooliganism disorder and other forms of violence though punishable under other provisions of the penal code and under other laws are not punishable under Section 124A of the penal code Likewise mere expressions of hate and even contempt for one’s government are not sedition When a person is dubbed “anti-Indian” it is distasteful to India’s citizenry but then to be “anti-Indian” is not a criminal offence and it is definitely not “sedition” (It only means that you are a freak and that it is high time to have your head examined) Citizens in India are free to criticise their governments at the Centre or in the states — which they do quite frequently and boldly and fearlessly as well; as they must because that is what a participatory democracy is all about It behoves the men and women of the law who advise government to impress upon their client that freedom of speech and expression is a fundamental right guaranteed under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution — and to remind all governments (present and future) that “sedition” had been deliberately and designedly excluded by the framers of the Constitution from Article 19(2) the exception clause to free speech only because as the founding fathers had said “Sedition is not made an offence in order to minister to the wounded vanity of governments” The law in Singapore and Malaysia is different — they have followed the strict interpretation given by the Privy Council and governments there have welcomed the interpretation but alas not their citizens At a conference held some years ago in Kuala Lumpur a prominent retired judge of the Court of Appeal of Malaysia said to a crowded hall of 500 delegates (at the International Bar Association conference held there): “Our written constitution guarantees freedom of speech” (loud applause) He then paused and went on to frankly say: “but it does not guarantee freedom after speech” In India we cannot possibly countenance — we simply cannot live under — a regime that expresses like sentiments As one of the judges in the Constitutional Court of South Africa recently said: “Speech is really free only when it hurts” The writer is an eminent jurist and senior advocate to the Supreme Court For all

2015 12:03 am Related News Back from a nearly two-month-long sabbatical Rahul Gandhi has spoken in remarkably quick succession at a party rally and in the newly reconvened Parliament The subject of both public interventions — rural distress in general and specifically the NDA government’s proposed amendments to the UPA’s land acquisition act — is a central concern of this moment and one that demands greater discussion and serious deliberation Yet the fact that Rahul spoke at all has overshadowed what he said and for that he must bear much of the responsibility At the Ramlila Maidan and in Lok Sabha he broke a long silence that was as unexplained as it was inexplicable That the Congress vice president — or its president-in-waiting — was missing in action in the street and in the House created needless scenarios of suspense and reflected poorly not only on him and his party but also on the state of the Opposition Rahul’s speeches signal at last an acknowledgement that the Congress leadership needs to be seen and heard that political communication is important and that reticence is not a good idea in an argumentative democracy But given Rahul’s own record the scion’s ghar wapsi does not settle all doubts For one he had earlier taken up and abandoned issues in no particular order in Bundelkhand Niyamgiri and Bhatta Parsaul While his speeches at Sunday’s rally and in the Lok Sabha on Monday promise to concentrate public attention on growing rural discontent even as they help the Congress to climb back into the political arena perseverance and follow-through will be key Then there is the crucial question of what the Rahul-led Congress has to say on the issue the solutions or the roadmap it has to offer to the beleaguered farming community While Rahul’s speeches have announced a more punchy style and the determination to press the charge of being pro-industry on the Modi government they have suggested a worrying intent to drag the battle down to an unimaginative “rich vs poor” rhetoric that trades on contrived oppositions and antagonisms There is also a tendency to speak to the past not the future Rahul’s comeback may mean that the Congress finally gets a leader who is not reluctant to lead but for the party a difficult path lies ahead It needs to deal with the challenge of organisational renewal while holding the Modi government to account and also updating its political shibboleths in a time of fast-paced change with competition heating up in the opposition space Rahul has spoken and that is good but he and his party have much to do For all the
