Section 66A and Other Legal Zombies

We find that an unconstitutional provision, Section 66-A of the Information Technology Act 2000, continues to be used by police departments across India in prosecutions. This undermines the freedom of speech, rule of law, and institutional integrity of the Supreme Court. We reason that this is indicative of signal failures between and beyond the institutions of government and recommend solutions which carry beyond Section 66-A.
