Article 19(1)(a) of the constitution of India lays down freedom of speech and expression. Article 19(2) also provides some restrictions on freedom of speech and expression. Thus freedom of speech and expression provided in the Indian constitution is not an absolute right.
Freedom of expression on the internet: Internet speech has the potential for greater impact than speech through normal media. Thus internet speech can facilitate or incite action much more effectively than traditional media.
