Amended IT rules not meant to curb free speech, criticism: Centre to HC

India's Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta, assured the Bombay High Court that new IT rules enabling the government to filter social media for fake news were not meant to curb free speech, criticism, humour or satire targeting even the prime minister. The court questioned the lack of guidelines to determine what is considered fake and misleading. Mehta argued that the rules only apply to fake and false facts, not opinion or criticism. The court noted that the term 'information' in the rules is not limited to facts, but includes opinion, criticism, and parody.
