Expressions v Oppression
Recently, the arrests of some unsuspecting citizens
For their alleged ‘offensive comments’ in twitter and facebook,
In the biggest democracy of the world,
Triggered a debate on ‘freedom’ of ‘expression’.
The society and system, both are struggling
To adapt and evolve,
To the tune and tenor of technology,
Which is set to redefine,
The mode, medium and language of communication.
If authorities are required to take a more liberal legal interpretation
In their assertions,
The champions of freedom of speech
Also need moderation.
