Today Supreme Court has scrapped section 66A, which violates the freedom of speech. Section 66A was introduced in 2000, under IT Act “is unconstitutional and we have no hesitation in striking it down,” said Justice R F Nariman, in his judgement.

A Law student, Shreya Singhal was first to challenge this law after the arrests of two young women who commented on shutdown of Mumbai during death of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray. Critics argued that this law is being misused by police and politicians.

“The government was willing to come up with additional stringent guidelines to prevent misuse of 66A,” said IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today. Guess the govt. is little late.

Many groups , critics and social activists invited this Supreme court judgment.
