Withdraw Maharashtra circular on sedition, say legal experts - The Times of India

The circular in clause 2 disturbingly suggests that words against a government representative would be seditious. It has excluded certain key words from the high court's guidelines so that it now states (in Marathi), "Words, signs or representations to be treated as seditious if they are against a person who is shown as representative of the government" whereas the original HC paragraph read, "Words, signs or representations against politicians or public servants by themselves do not fall in this category unless the words/signs/representations show them as representative of the government."

Hopefully it was a result of bad translation.
