Supreme Court asks government why it was a "mute spectator" to hate speeches on TV debates. Voicing displeasure over hate speech on TV news channels, the Supreme Court Wednesday wanted it know why the government was a “mute spectator” and whether it intends to enact a law to curb it, as recommended by the Law Commission.

Noting that the role of the anchor is important during TV debates, the court said it’s the duty of the anchor to prevent hate speeches from happening.

A bench of Justices K M Joseph and Hrishikesh Roy said there needs to be an institutional mechanism to deal with hate speech.

“The role of anchor (in TV debates) is very important. These speeches on mainstream media or social media that is unregulated.

“Mainstream TV channels still hold sway. The role of anchor is critical and it’s their duty to see that hate speech doesn’t occur…Many a time those who want to speak are muted,” the bench observed.
