The use of sedition statutes in a number of recent instances has reignited debate over their undemocratic nature and usefulness in today's constitutional democracy. Unfortunately, these norms have resisted colonial rule. The implementation of sedition laws by various Indian courts demonstrates how out of date they have become for today's culture, and numerous proposals for their application are made. All citizens of a democratic society, such as India, have the fundamental right to freedom of expression and speech. Although a law of sedition is permissible if such rights are subjected to reasonable limitations, the breadth of such laws is crucial. In our country, where the rule of law reigns paramount, charging someone with sedition indiscriminately is a violation of the constitution. This paper attempt to bring together all of the debates regarding repealing and altering these laws into one place. The existence of this law in our statute books, as well as its prosecution, appears to be unjustified in our democratic society.
