Why No Freedom of Expression for Sen

Readers Pulse

Close on the heels of BJP MP Chandan Mitra’s demand for stripping Nobel laureate Amartya Sen of Bharat Ratna for speaking against Narendra Modi, the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamna carried an editorial by its president Uddhav Thackeray asking Dr. Sen to mind his business as an economist. One wonders whether a Bharat Ratna or being an economist forfeits the fundamental right of expression given to every citizen in the Constitution!  We see every night, a battery of Supreme Court lawyers, fighting political debates on the TV news channels.  There are many Bollywood actors, industrialists and even some corporate media houses openly siding with one party or the other. Why the Hindutva brigade is not asking them to mind their business?
