In the latest edition of "At The Heart Of It with Shoma Chaudhury", Shoma discusses the three fundamental questions that revolve around the Arundhati Roy controversy: one about sedition, one about the nature and role of a writer in society and what Arundhati said on Kashmir per se.

"Way back in 1922, when Mahatma Gandhi was facing trial for sedition, he said very explicity that it his bounden duty as a citizen to speak against forms of government that are oppressive, he thinks it is the right of people to express disaffection against people, against forms of government so long as they do not incite physical violence. That principle of liberal citizenship should continue even though the British Raj is gone and we have an Indian government in place."
