Hate speech laws in India - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In my experience 9 out of 10 Indians has no problems whatsoever with such limitations
When i took a lawyer to task over it he told me provocation was valid grounds to seek redressal.
In reality this has political overtones, if you tolerate such affronts on trivial things today, they might not be so trivial tomorrow. Leads to public unrest and that is how such laws are justified.
Its for our security
