We are a non-profit technology collective empowering native language communication with technology tools for Malayalam, the official language of Kerala. As a community working primarily through the internet we witness on a regular basis the benefits and harms of unfettered access to communication and broadcasting tools that are available today. We see the need for protecting vulnerable sections of our society from those who misuse such means to the detriment of others. We also see great danger in making laws that restrict freedom of expression without adequate thought. As such we were alarmed by the reports in news and other media about the proposed amendment to Kerala Police Act, section 118(A).
