Given that each of these grounds is mirrored in provisions of the Indian Penal Codeone may fault the Gujarat government for demonstrating a lack of imaginationbut not a lack of strategic judgmentin defending the ban What is more perplexinghoweveris the uninspired nature of the response to the state governments decision For the most partthe liberal response was wholly reactive to the justifications supporting the ban Liberals argued the ban was bad because law and order concerns were insufficient to justify restricting free speechthat the concerns of the dead should not trump the speech rights of the livingand that the term patriotic sentiments was not sufficiently definite to justify curtailing expression They rarely offered their own justifications for the defence of free speech This reactive defence of free speech is problematicbecause it makes the right to speak ones mind dependent on empirical factors like the possibility of riotsnot on normative considerations It is interesting to compare the poverty of the liberal response to state censorship of expression with the invigorating defence of Delhi high courts reading the IPCs Section 377 down Liberal commentators employed a two-pronged analysis then: on one handcountering the arguments of reactionaries who believed that homosexuality violated Indias social fabricand on the othermaking a strong positive case for the value of same-sex relationships You never got the impression from that debate that the sexual freedoms of millions depended on the paucity of convincing homophobic arguments The failure to put forth an affirmative case for politically controversial speech is particularly surprising given that the basic ground for protecting gay rights also extends to protecting such speech The demands of minority protectionas the Delhi high court superbly demonstrated in its judgmentundergird all our fundamental rights: public animus and disgust towards a particular social group or vulnerable minority is not a valid ground for classification which singled that group out for discrimination by the state The constitutional guarantee of equal protection under lawthe court heldrequires at the very least that all citizens be capable of enjoying their fundamental rights and civil liberties equallywithout being arbitrarily subject to the coercive apparatus of the state Subjecting gays in particular to the rigours of a criminal lawand in effect rendering them second-class citizensis a manifest denial of their constitutional right to equality The high court could not have reached this conclusion if it did not first take a position on the moral significance of sexual identity In order to show that the sexual identity of gay men was linked to their feelings of self-worth and dignitythe court treated sexual identity as being fundamentally constitutive of who we areand hence deserving of special treatment in light of the Constitutions commitment to protecting human dignity A very similar argument can be made for protecting expression which offends the sensibilities of large chunks of our population The freedom of expression is not a constitutional guarantee which exists solely for the purpose of ensuring that citizens are kept informed about the activities of their government Like the right to equal protection of the lawsexpression deserves heightened protection because the espousal of ones views and beliefs is regarded as being fundamental to ones identity Since human beings rarely exist in a social vacuumour ability to communicate to othersand be receptive of their responsesis an important determinant of who we are Much like ones sexual orientationthereforeones ability to disseminate ones views should not be subject to censorship where it contradicts the views of othersand causes them offence In such a casethe constitutional mandate of equal protection will be violatedfor ones ability to express ones identity will be made entirely subservient to the demands and feelings of ones community A state which permits individual freedoms to be restricted in this manner is not a state which respects liberty Such a state is also incapable of respecting equality If we truly cherish liberty and equalitythen it is important that we recognise the similarities between the protection of sexual identity and of offensive speech They are protected not because the arguments for their proscription are unsound or illogicalbut becausein a liberal constitutional systemthe expression of ones identity is treated as being of the highest possible value It is time we stopped allowing the moral police to set the agendaand the limitson discussions about the extent of our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms The writer is in the department of government at Harvard University [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News
