About the Book: Great Repression : The Story Of Sedition In India

The Indian Penal Code was formulated in 1860, three years after the first Indian revolt for independence. It was the countrys first-ever codification of offences and penalties. But it was only in 1870 that Section 124A was slipped into Chapter VI (Of Offences against the State), defining the offence of sedition in a statute for the first time in the history of common law. When India became independent in 1947, the Constituent Assembly expressed strong reservations against sedition as a restriction on free speech as it had been used as a weapon against freedom fighters, many of whom were a part of the Assembly.

Concise, incisive and thoughtful, The Great Repression by Chitranshul Sinha, an advocate on record of the Supreme Court of India, tells the story of this outdated colonial-era law.........
