Hey Ram (Jethmalani)

Horror quote of the day

The octogenarian lawyer, Mr. Ram Jethmalani, arguing in the Supreme Court:

“It is part of Indian tradition to hold protests on streets or any other public place. We do not have to ask for police permission. We don’t need police permission.”[Telegraph]

Forget the invoking of a non-existent Indian tradition, just compare it to the provisions in the US.

The First Amendment is not absolute. Government can make reasonable stipulations about the time, place and manner a peaceable protest can take place, as long as those restrictions are applied in a content-neutral way.[ProPublica]
