Fali Nariman, "the liberal lion of the bar" as he is called by most of his well-wishers, says he is worried about freedom in India today. People are not free from fear, its gnawing on them, so feels Mr Nariman. He talks about the sedition law and the how the problem of sedition comes from fear. He is a Nehruvian and he believes that Nehru's "Discovery of India" made us proud. He also feels that criminal defamation should be abolished and civil defamation law made stronger. Mr Nariman dislikes hate speech as it pulls down the atmosphere of progress. "Must preserve what our constitution has given us" is how Mr Nariman concludes this very candid interview.
