The Supreme Court has clearly stated that I Section 66A of the T Act is unconstitutional. Therefore, it appears that the sections of the IPC have been extended to circumvent the mandate of the Supreme Court. Freedom of speech and expression is the foundation of the Constitution and the law. Such stretching should be considered unacceptable.
Advocate Prashant Mali, an expert in cyber law, said, “Writing obscene comments curbs freedom of expression and has become a fashion. The youth should understand that the police will trace their Internet Protocol (IP) address and put them in jail.” I think schools and parents should teach their children what to write and what to avoid on social media. Social media etiquette training takes time.
Ritesh Bhatia, a cyber expert, said, “In the digital age, the power of social media is a double-edged sword. While it offers a platform for free expression, it demands responsible use. The arrest is a stark reminder. Acts as a reminder that spreading frustration through online platforms can have serious consequences. Constructive dialogue is essential to a healthy democracy, and abuse of public figures not only perpetuates negative but legal consequences. Let’s harness the potential of social media for positive change and foster respectful conversation instead of contributing to a toxic environment.
