In a historic decision, the Supreme Court stays the colonial-era sedition law while the government reviews it. The Supreme Court directed that all pending proceedings under this law be kept in abeyance and said it would be appropriate not to use this provision of law till further re-examination is over. The centre had argued against a stay on the law. After this, the law minister said that while he "respected the court and its independence", there was a 'Lakshman Rekha' that must not be crossed. Where does one really draw this line -- and has it actually been crossed?
