hate speech net

The Home Ministry is examining new laws and amendments to deal with hate speech on the internet. This after a  report submitted by a high-level committee formed to propose new laws or amendments on this crucial issue.

Headed by TK Viswanathan, who served as director of ADR, ICADR and as Secretary General of the Lok Sabha, the committee submitted its report to the Union Home Ministry recently. The committee was formed after the Supreme Court struck down section 66A of the Information Technology (IT) Act. Considering the growing menace of hate speech ans abuse on internet in the absence of the provision, the committee was reportedly set up to propose new laws/amendments in existing laws and is understood to have suggested that section 78 of the IT Act needs to be substituted and Section 153 and 505A of the Indian Penal Code need to be amended
