In the petition, a demand has been made from the court to declare several sections of UAPA as unconstitutional, the petition said that if the fact-finder is declared a criminal under UAPA, then it is on the “freedom of expression” given by our constitution. There is injury. This will have an adverse effect on the fundamental rights, if such UAPA is used, then only a convenient picture of the government will come before the public. Only those facts will come out which will not cause much harm to the government.
The petition has also defended journalist Shyam Meera Singh’s tweet “Tripura is burning”, apart from saying that India’s sovereignty or territorial integrity is not being questioned. The petition also referred to the speech of former Supreme Court Justice RM Nariman in which he said that UAPA is the law of the British.
