the release of Kanhaiya Kumar a Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student union leader accused of sedition in New Delhi (Express photo by Oinam Anand) Top News I have had the privilege of serving two universities — South Gujarat and Delhi — as their vice-chancellor and teaching law for about three decades in India I have had a ringside view of politics within and outside the campus I have been witness to remote-controlled party politics on the campus especially during the Mandal and Kamandal days in Delhi But never before had an entire university been declared by anyone — whether a member of the ruling party government or the opposition — as “anti-national” Never before has the police entered the university save the dark days of the Emergency without the permission of the VC or the head of the concerned institution Nor were presidents and office-bearers of student unions arrested or media (and others) manhandled by members of the bar in and near the court compound or the media asked with violence not to do its reporting Never did members of the armed forces seek to return their degrees Never before were street marches held against democratic dissent Never before did citizens of neighbouring areas surround the entrance to a campus seeking to intimidate its denizens And at no time have popular or party patriotic sentiments ran so volatile as even to ask a politician father to “kill” his student daughter for participating in an “anti-national protest” (as a BJP national secretary is reported to have said recently in Chennai) Obviously patriotic sentiments are running high to a point of public frenzy; yet never was so pressing the need for a reasoned dialogue as now Do the present happenings around and within JNU the protest and violence portend any lack of patriotism on our campuses Constitutionally sincere citizens agree on two things: First any assailant of unity integrity and democratic sovereignty ought to be dealt with according to the law; and second intimidation and violence especially aggression or predation — moral vigilantism of any sort — have no place in any pursuit of rashtra bhakti Both violate the basic structure fundamental rights directive principles and basic duties of all Indian citizens prescribed explicitly by the Constitution Fully flouted thus is constitutional pluralism — the fundamental duty of all Indian citizens to preserve our “composite culture” “spirit of critical inquiry and social reform” and “excellence” in all walks of life under Article 51A Some deplorable anti-India utterances were made at a rally on the JNU campus Who made them and why can only be found out by an authoritative inquiry Currently a plethora of inquiries and investigations are underway: JNU NHRC police Bar Council and Supreme Court and Delhi High Court These different modes of inquires are all necessary provided they cater to justice and not obfuscate the causes career and consequences of the violence and intimidation The protest and counter-protests raise basic concerns about what Jürgen Habermas called “constitutional patriotism” different from “statist patriotism” (what Gandhi called “manufacturing affection for the state”) Fidelity to constitutional purposes alone can help us to discern public reason Constitutional norms affect us all stimulate a larger debate help discriminate rational arguments against irrational ones and bind us to jurally ordained public morality May there be different forms of patriotism each vying with the others Can each political party have its own brand of patriotism and vigilante citizen cadres and what do we do when these conflict and collide Are ministers bound by the oath under the Third Schedule or their own type of patriotism Should any government whether at the Centre or in a state be allowed to resile from the duties prescribed by constitutional patriotism Is unbridled popular patriotism to replace constitutional patriotism Not to reason and act together may risk the demise of constitutional democracy as we know it We have also to learn the simple truth uttered by Karl Mannheim in 1940 that in a “democratic mass society especially with great social mobility no group can succeed in deeply influencing the whole of society” When different elites compete for power and influence it is a costly error to think that political leadership alone can impose its will on society Indeed Prime Minster Narendra Modi rightly asked us to affirm the motto: “Sabka saath sabka vikas” (roughly inclusive constitutional development is the only worthwhile development) Accordingly sedition should never be a way of governance of dissent Our SC has ruled early that every citizen has a right to discuss and dissent; only incitement to violent or criminal action stands outlawed Shouting slogans that are not demonstrably anti-India and conducting and joining protest marches are regarded by the court as an integral aspect of freedom of speech and expression and democratic dissent This law was further elaborated in the Khusboo (2010) and Shreya Singhal (2015) cases The law forbids recourse to the offence as part of an ensemble of governance; acquittal on sedition charges (lumped under other IPC offences by the National Crime Records Bureau) is the rule rather than the exception But a charge of sedition and persevering in prosecution have a demonstrably “chilling effect” (in the SC’s words in 2015) on the democratic right to disagree and dissent Our Constitution doesn’t allow free citizens to be pre-trial detenus for years on end — punishing non-violent dissent is constitutionally offensive even when it may be politically expedient to preserve the colonial law after more than six decades of the republic Even if such a law is to remain in the statute book its exercise by the police and executive must be reasonable under Article 14 Certainly it’s time to consider decriminalising speech-related conduct making such offences bailable and negotiable prescribing a regime of prior sanctions and providing standard-based objective satisfaction for prosecution The march of law should forthwith prohibit all forms of violent vigilantism and simultaneously move towards a fresh law narrowly tailored to prevent threats to the unity of a sovereign democratic secular and socialist India avoiding at the same time a “chilling effect” on free expression The writer is professor of law University of Warwick and former vice-chancellor of the Universities of South Gujarat and Delhi For all the latest Opinion News

said to have been collected by them in the last few years a Trinamool Congress MP said on Friday "I was most surprised when it came to light that a party like CPM could collect a staggeringly high amount of Rs41726 crore from 2005 to 2011 as accounted by the Marxist party itself in their audit report submitted with the Election Commission" Swagat Roy told IANS Of the amount the CPM by its own admission told the Election Commission that 538 percent of this amount was from "unknown sources" Earlier Roy raised the issue during zero hour in the Lok Sabha and also levelled similar charges against Congress and BJP Representational image AFP "The Congress audit accounts submitted to the Election Commission said of its Rs598 crore shown as income in 2013-14 825 percent earning was from unknown sources For BJP out of Rs673 crore and Rs959 crore earning in 2013-14 and 2014-15 respectively 73 percent of the amount was from unknown source So I raised it during zero hour today that these parties should come clean and reveal their unknown sources" he said The five recognised national parties – BJP Congress CPM Communist Party of India (CPI) and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) – were asked by the Election Commission in 2014 to submit details of audit accounts of their respective income Roy said "The commission had also said that actions could be taken for non-submission of the audited account So I raised the issue today" "I have the list of CPM contributors and they include the likes of promoters resort owners and hoteliers" he said In fact CPM and other left party members clashed with Roy in the Lok Sabha when the submission was being made Among others left members MB Rajesh and PK Teacher told Roy that they have contributed to the party fund Responding to this Roy said"My objection is not to their contribution I want to know who are unknown sources" Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party leader Mallikarjun Kharge were also present in the Lok Sabha when the
