  3. A blasphemous law The Indian Express Using state power to enforce the sacred, Punjab's sacrilege law defiles the sacred, messes with the secular. UBHODEEP


  4. Does India want to traverse the same road? The Punjab government's proposal to amend Article 295 of the Penal Code is deeply regressive and will have deep ramifications beyond Punjab. The proposed amendment gives life imprisonment for whoever causes injury, damage or sacrilege to the Guru Granth Sahib, the Bhagwad Gita, the Quran and the Bible. As we have seen in the case of neighbouring Pakistan, the progressive strengthening of anti-blasphemy laws during the Seventies was a sign of a toxic combination of greater intolerance and authoritarianism strengthening of anti-blasphemy lawsdurnng athoritarianism UBHODEEP


  5. Holy books like the Adi Granth are sacred. They express the highest truths about Ultimate Reality. But using state power to enforce the sacred, both defiles the sacred and messes with the secular. their status is now reduced to a section of the Indian Penal Code. the word of God needs protection from the mortal state. UBHODEEP


  6. But this law also messes with secularism. A liberal state needs two sensibilities The first is that many good things are good and derive their authentic meaning precisely from the fact that there is no coerciorn behind them In India, we are constantly expanding the circle of deference to religious sentiment. Contrary to what the Punjab government says, making religious sentiments the basis for law, is a recipe for competitive political mobilisation and conflict, not of peace. S. UBHODEEP


  7. The idea of life imprisonment for acts of injury to the book is neither about deterrence, nor piety. It is simply about the state making a show of its power because it can Any law that empowers the state to give upto life imprisonment for injury to the book is about nothing but creating a pall of fear. When the original IPC was discussed in the 1920s, our leaders were far more conscious of its possible infringement on liberty. Now the political class legitimises any infringement on liberty It should also worry a democracy that no political party has opposed or called out the authoritarian character of this bill UBHODEEP
