Central government reconsiders treason law, requests Supreme Court not to take up such cases

Government on treason law: The Center told the Supreme Court on Monday that it has decided to reconsider and reconsider the provisions of the Rebellion Act. At the same time, the Center has requested the court not to take up the case of treason till the government investigates the matter. A day earlier, the government had defended the country’s colonial-era coup law and asked the Supreme Court to dismiss petitions challenging it. The legitimacy of the coup law has been challenged in the Supreme Court, which heard the case and sought a response from the central government. But taking a U-turn on Monday, the central government has asked it to reconsider its provisions.

The British-era coup law, designed to stifle liberal voices, has long been under judicial scrutiny because of widespread misuse of the law. Independent MP Nonit Rana has also been booked by the Maharashtra Police under the provisions of the Sedation Act and has been arrested for the same. According to legal experts, filing a case of treason against an MP and MLA and sending him to jail for reciting Hanuman Chalisa in public is a clear misuse of this law.

The center opposed.

During the hearing of petitions challenging the legitimacy of the coup law, when the Supreme Court sought a response from the central government, the central government supported the law by filing an affidavit. The Central Government said that the decision in the Kedarnath v. Bihar Government case, which came from the Constitutional Bench of the Supreme Court in 1962, was given after a thorough analysis and investigation of the matter. This was confirmed in several subsequent decisions. Therefore, there is no need to revise this good law which is comprehensive and effective. The central government has also said that all petitions challenging the legal provisions of this section of the IPC should be dismissed. All these arguments have been submitted in writing by Solicitor General Tishar Mehta.

A three-judge bench headed by CJINV Ramna will hear the case on Tuesday, May 10 at 2 pm. Meanwhile, on Monday, the central government changed its stance and gave a new twist to the hearing. Following the latest Maharashtra Police Act, voices have been raised against the misuse of Section 124A of the Indian Penal Code and the government is beginning to feel that the provisions relating to mutiny should be changed.
