it applies to any appeal to the electors Second it seems to without expressly going into the matter overrule a case history that had grappled with complex terms like what counts as an unwarranted religious or caste appeal It now seems to expand the scope to include any appeals to religion caste language etc that furthers election prospects The moral commitment to secularism that every Supreme Court judgment has affirmed is laudatory But this is a poor judgment in four ways First there is the methodological problem The Court has devoted more pages to explicating purposive interpretation than clarifying the substantive issues Ironically both the majority and dissenting judgment use purposive interpretation to come to opposite conclusions This should lend credence to the suspicion that method has to borrow Stone’s phrase also become a class of “illusory references” But more seriously purposive interpretation needs to not just look at legislative history but the case law How does the law operate in practice What are the effects of particular words The judgment goes into interpretative philosophy more than the case law of election cases In this sense the judgment lacks legal integrity For instance we often forget that the much discussed “Hindutva” case where Justice Verma declared Hindutva to be a way of life not a religious appeal pointed to exactly these difficulties As VS Rekhi had pointed out many years ago the distinction between “religious” and “non religious” appeals is not self-evident Often bad law will lead to redescriptions Beef ban (as we have done) will be recast as a claim about animal husbandry; the claim that there was a Ram temple can be construed as a historical not a religious claim In fact the Court seems to completely ignore the fact that the problem is not just that we invoke religion in politics It is that what counts as and gets defined as religion is inherently political in the first place And this politics is also reflected in its own drawing of these lines It is all very well for the Court to expand the scope of Article (123) of the RPA But to do so without any guidance on of what kinds of appeals will count as religious is avoiding the question If we take existing precedents this case will turn out to be much ado about nothing If we take an expanded definition a large chunk of democratic politics will be threatened The broad interpretation will produce even more uncertainty It seems to “outlaw” parties like the Akali Dal whose very name violates the new interpretation It also has uncertain implications for as Justice Chandrachud rightly points out the grammar of social struggle that has characterised Indian politics Are language movements going to be outlawed The Court makes heavy weather of the fact that religious appeals produce violence But the RPA as so many other provisions in our penal law already regulates hate speech or speech that produces enmity Fourth the Court should surely have expended more energy on reconsidering Jamuna Prasad Mukhariya v/s Lachi Ram that gave rather short shrift to the question of whether these restrictions violate free speech Purposive interpretation requires keeping up with a requirement of a modern free speech law The dissent is a model of disciplined interpretation and a deeper understanding of the interface between law and society If the Supreme Court kept this high a standard of argument consistently it would be fine But Chief Justice Thakur’s last day in Court was a mix: High moral principle but dubious law (RPA); judicial overreach (the wholesale takeover over BCCI); accountability (ordinance subject to judicial review); avoidance (a range of important constitutional cases including demonetisation) But there is something deeper in the RPA case that should disturb us The RPA was essentially concerned with civic standing of representatives: It was a quest for a modern language of representation where the identity of the candidates mattered less than what they stood for or argued for But the RPA like much of our free speech law has also been based on paternalistic premise: The people as full of destructive passion that the state needs to regulate While superficially appealing this diagnosis corrodes democracy and liberty Our appetite for paternalism is growing under the guise of doing good The judges are fond of quoting Learned Hand They would be well advised to heed his warning: That a democracy that is constantly looking for saviours outside the democratic process to save it from the people will lose its liberty The writer is president CPR Delhi and contributing editor ‘The Indian Express’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top News
