Sedition Clause in IPC Should be Scrapped: Prakash Karat

  • “As far as JNU is concerned, the charge of sedition is something levelled against a student for activity that we may not agree with.
  • It does not qualify as sedition or anti-national. Political debates, differences should happen on a campus I am against the police intervening and arresting students on the charge of sedition.
  • We want the sedition clause in the Indian Penal Code scrapped,” said Prakash Karat, former General Secretary of Marxist Communist Party.
