Indian Writer Arundhati Roy Threatened with Prosecution under Anti-Terrorism Law

"Police in the eastern Indian state of Chhattisgarh are 'exploring' laying charges under the state's draconian anti-terrorism law against Arundhati Roy, a Booker Prize winning novelist, essayist and human rights campaigner.."

Under its provisions, an act or even a written or verbal communication

that "poses a danger or fear thereof" to "public order," or that "has a

"encourages" disobedience to any law or institutions "set up by law"

is unlawful and could result in a seven-year prison term.

I wonder who could not be charged with any of this.
