Hullabaloo on section 499 and 500 ends with apex court decision

Supreme court decision on IPC section 499 and 500 has been announce denying its removal / change.

Any one with open speech now must learn the finer details of IPC section 499 and 500 to avoid court case / legal action.

The headline making political persona Rahul Gandhi and Subramanian Swamy petition rejected by the Supreme Court labelling it constitutional.

Online writers and journalists must know the IPC section 499 and 500 of Indian Penal Code, IPC i.e. भारतीय दण्ड संहिता in Devnagari Hindi along with public speech making persons like politicians and activists. More precisely if any one is dealing public in any medium of mass communication now must read this post on IPC section 499 and 500 becoming the fire like subject of today's news, views, TV channels and social media outlets.

Rahul Gandhi and Subramanian Swamy has lost the petition in Supreme Court but generated Tsunami of debates on the criminal behaviour dealing law.

Before discussing further we must know the official texts of the above said sections posted below -

IPC Section 499: Whoever, by words either spoken or intended to be read, or by signs or by visible representations, makes or publishes any imputation concerning any person intending to harm, or knowing or having reason to believe that such imputation will harm, the reputation of such person, is said, except in the cases hereinafter expected, to defame that person.

Indian Penal Code Section 500: Whoever defames another shall be punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.

Well now you start looking back the speeches made in past by your favorite persona, Youtube might help having tons of speeches live.

The grave question is who will initiate the legal action? There are for sure millions of words spoken breaking the Sec 499-500 but rarely few ones are challenged.
The question become graves of grave when you try to look on the case finally decided.
Anyways the Supreme Court decision keeping the status of above section has at-least put the law in lime light and those unaware are now knowing it.
