Abusive words can’t be used for Mahatma

back
The SC said that in the name of artistic freedom, poets and authors cannot use abusive words against others – including people such as Mahatma Gandhi – as every freedom is subject to restrictions.

Marathi poet Vasant Dattatrey Gujjar and publisher Devidas Ramachandra Tuljapurkar have been charged for using "profane” language in a political satire on Mahatma Gandhi.
