Letter to BS: We should follow Gandhi who expressed his dissent peacefully

Mahatma Gandhi
Supreme Court judge Justice D Y Chandrachud has recently expressed his “candid” views on "dissent" calling it a vital ingredient of a vibrant democracy. In fact, one needs to take inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi, who had the courage and fortitude to express his dissent in a peaceful manner. Further Justice Chandrachud desires that legislature should pass a law to protect dissidents, activists, and whistleblowers to take a stand and speak up.
