speech have done terrific damage to India’s liberal reputation in recent years From cartoonists being gagged to books of all covers going underground India’s politicians speak in chorus in wanting its people to say nothing at all The Congress enacted Section 66A of the IT Act with rare fervour The BJP inherited and deployed it with equal panache Given this political consensus the Supreme Court’s decision in Shreya Singhal to declare Section 66A unconstitutional marks a powerful moment in its institutional history For a body struggling to recraft itself battling doctrinal incoherence and a decidedly mixed record on civil liberties the decision couldn’t have come at a finer time Sec 66A: 21 individuals who changed the system Section 66A punishes “offensive messages” that are sent “by means of a computer resource or a communication device” If you are wondering what the former means you are not alone What you should know is that it includes information “for the purpose of causing annoyance” While the Indian Constitution allows for exceptions to free speech elaborately listed in Article 19(2) such exceptions aren’t a get-out-of-jail-free card They must as the court emphasised be subject to justification This test failed miserably in the case of 66A Under the provision the offence was “complete by sending a message for the purpose of causing annoyance … without in any manner impacting public order” Similarly the provision couldn’t withstand the decency or morality exemption Words after all can annoy without being indecent or immoral The state’s defence of 66A offered no causal story no correspondence between acts and alleged outcomes that was convincing The provision performed as badly when confronted with the question of vagueness Written in words bearing little resemblance to their ostensible ends the court found that “the expressions used in 66A are completely open-ended and undefined” Share This Article Related Article Aside from underscoring the terms needed to satisfy free speech exceptions an interesting feature of the decision will be its impact on future internet regulation Though matters of expression typically focus on content free speech law is about both material and medium On the former the SC’s score is far from admirable But on the latter as the celebrated newsprint regulation cases remind us the record is more respectable Here the animating principle has been that the right to free speech calls for conditions that can make its exercise possible This principle raises the inevitable question of how mediums of communication can be regulated When does regulation even if indifferent towards content violate free speech by incapacitating the environment that enables its performance In Shreya Singhal the court upheld the state’s claim that the internet could be regulated differently from other mediums of communication It found that the “intelligible differentia is clear — the internet gives any individual a platform which requires very little or no payment through which to air his views” There is some rationale for treating different mediums differently but the court said little more on this issue In the days ahead structuring the precise legal relationship between different mediums and the value of free speech will be one of its defining challenges What next: What happens to Section 66A now While the judgment is a work of careful legal reasoning it contains an implicit recognition of two crucial lessons offered by modern Indian politics First that codification the giving of an elaborate written form to laws is not a neutral exercise To adapt a phrase from John Austin Indian political leaders have long argued that the validity of a law is one thing its use and abuse quite another The idea that laws merely explicate a framework rather than necessitate repressive use is elegant in theory and not necessarily disingenuous It was in a way the grand impetus behind 19th century English legal reform But we can now see that this claim is poorly matched by sociological reality Because laws operate within institutional structures their textual form is bound to give certain actors more presumptive power than others Provisions like 66A don’t simply outline the terms under which the state can act They also naturally give it the power to judge when those terms apply The very power to act often creates its own legitimacy The right to do something becomes the right thing to do The second more sobering lesson is that legal constructs are almost invariably self-fulfilling prophecies We encounter this most acutely in matters like the legal recognition of caste which recreates rather than merely recognising such identities but it would be a mistake to miss the catholic prevalence of this phenomenon When the state suggests that certain acts of speech will engender violence that particular words will generate alarm the laws it enacts will create citizens made in this image Human nature is a remarkably contingent affair We will take the shape of the promise bestowed upon us For many of us this is a source of hope It is the Hobbesian dream offered by political life that it carries within it the power to transform us entirely But for elites this is the ultimate nightmare for the greater the transformation the higher the prospect of their displacement India’s politicians are hardly unaware of the radical pliability of human passions Indeed it is precisely their fear of this fact that motivates the enactment of provisions like Section 66A Khosla a lawyer and political

blamed the BSP too alleging the party talked of the Buddha but did nothing to improve a Buddhist circuit that included places like Khushinagar Shrawasti and Kaushambi He promised the development of

been made is the fact that in this case the caller knew the credit card number of the victim and only asked for four digits of the card and the three digit security code printed at the back of the card (Representational Picture) Top News IN A case that raises questions about security of debit and credit card details a Goregaon resident was recently conned when a person pretending to be calling from his bank took his card details on the pretext of giving him “cash back” for purchases After this unauthorised transactions were detected from his account What sets the case apart from similar incidents in which such fraudulent calls have been made is the fact that in this case the caller knew the credit card number of the victim and only asked for four digits of the card and the three digit security code printed at the back of the card An FIR has been registered at the Goregaon police station that is investigating the case An officer linked to the case said the complainant Naishal Shah (30) who works in a private company was at his native place in Gujarat when he received a call on June 16 The caller claimed to be calling from the Nariman Point office of the private bank in which Shah had an account and said that he was calling him to “process cash back for the purchases he had made using the card” The officer said: “The caller however asked him for only four digits – the ones from 9 to 12 – of the 16-digit card number Later he asked for the security code Since he had not been asked to give the entire credit card number Shah did not suspect anything” After Shah gave the details the caller asked him for the One Time Password (OTP) that he said Shah would soon receive on his phone At this point Shah became suspicious and said that he would not give the OTP “The caller however told him that in that case they would be forced to block the card With some hesitation Shah ended up giving the OTP to the caller The latter told him that he would soon receive the cash back in his account” the officer said However within few minutes instead of cash back some unauthorised transactions totalling Rs 18500 were made using Shah’s account details Suspecting the previous caller to be a conman Shah approached the Goregaon Police when he returned to the city After going through the details the police registered an FIR on charges of cheating and sections of the Information Technology Act A senior officer said: “Normally such callers do not have the details and hence we ask people to be wary of these calls However this time around the caller had the card number and just needed the security code We suspect the involvement of some insider who may have provided card details to such callers This makes them all the more believable” An officer with the cyber crime police station said that since the police had been carrying out awareness drives criminals might have fine tuned their modus operandi As per the statistics provided by the Mumbai Police around 200 cases of vishing – where fraudulent phone calls are made to con people – have been registered between January 1 and June 4 this year With the increasing number of cases and hardly any of
