The arrest of people for expressing their views has become very common. As the article “An unreasonable restriction” (Feb. 20) says, it is important to define the term “grossly offensive.”

Those who try to incite communal and religious riots, and whose activities are detrimental to the interests of society need to be punished. But those expressing their views on an issue or a person should not be harassed by law.

We are experiencing neo-colonialism in every possible way. Earlier, there were guns and cannons to suppress citizens.

We now have laws restricting our freedom. Section 66A of the IT Act is indeed very vague.

Minhaj Nizami,
