New Delhi :

Union Minister of State for Home Nityanand Rai told the Lok Sabha on Tuesday that the word anti-national is not defined in the law and has been removed from the Constitution in 1976, a year after it was included. The term ‘anti-national’ is generally used against the critics of the party and the PM Modi government on behalf of the members of the party. The minister said in a written reply, however, that many types of criminal laws and various judicial systems have been implemented to deal with illegal and subversive activities considered to be harmful to the unity and integrity of the country.

Rai said this in response to a question by AIMIM chief and MP Asaduddin whether he has defined ‘this word’ under any law or other legal act. In his reply, the Minister of State for Home said, this word was included in Article 31D of the Constitution through the 42nd Amendment in 1976 (during the Emergency). He pointed out that Article 31D was later removed by the 43rd Amendment in 1977. Owaisi also asked whether the Supreme Court had laid down guidelines to deal with offenses related to anti-national activities. On the issue of people arrested for anti-national activities in the last three years, the minister said that such data is not maintained by the central government.
