“The sedition Law is a colonial law. Do we still need the law in our country after 75 years of Independence,” Chief Justice NV Ramanna questioned.

“The dispute is it is a colonial law, the very same law was used by the British to silence Gandhi.”

The court said several petitions have challenged the sedition law and all will be heard together.

“Our concern is misuse of the law and no accountability of the executive,” the Chief Justice added.
