The writers conveniently ignored that if there is a police complaint made against you, the police have to arrest you. The names of editors and news editors are published in the paper's print line for them to take responsibility for both the good and bad.
The editors who are blaming pseudo-seculars easily forgot that whenever an ordinary Indian is called to the police station or is arrested, he doesn't get this VIP status of police completing the 'formality of arrest' and releasing the person within minutes.
Read the editors' (Vir Sanghvi, R Jagannathan and Rajinder Puri) angry pieces here, here and here. They should remember that whether right or wrong, everybody in India has the right to protest and lodge a complaint. Howsoever absured may be the reason for demonstration, we can't negate them this right.
Editors shouldn't feel that laws would be made more flexible for them.
