SC judge: opposing govt can't be labelled as anti-national

Feb 24, 2020 23:26 IST

Supreme Court judge Deepak Gupta has said if attempts are made to quell dissent, then it will have a chilling effect on democracy, as 'governments are not always right' and that opposing government can't be labelled as anti-national. Speaking at the lecture hosted by Supreme Court Bar Association on democracy and dissent, Justice Gupta emphasized the essence of democracy by stating that majoritarianism is antithesis to democracy. He said there have been many recent incidents where people have been called anti-national because they dissented from the government.
