Freedom of speech and expression is one of such natural rights which is there with human since his birth only. In Indian context right to freedom of speech and expression is the fundamental right and founds place in part III of Indian constitution. Right to freedom of speech and expression is so vital that it is not only provided under Indian constitution but is also guaranteed by almost every modern constitution either as fundamental or human rights. In fact this can be said that what we termed as fundamental rights are the modern versions of natural rights only. But as we all know that rights always have their correlative duties, thus rights are not absolute. In this modern era where digitalization is the dream no State gives absolute rights otherwise it may create anarchy. Therefore every fundamental right has some restrictions which are needed to be observed. In this ICT age where the line between free speech and hate speech has blurred due to which the right to free speech and expression has become highly debated issue. Many a times a question is being raised that whether we are exercising freedom of speech and expression in true sense or not? As discussed in the previous chapter one can easily observe that social mediais a double edge sword which has its own benefits as well as disadvantages. Therefore we need to resolve this issue with the help of concepts like accountability, transparency, and traceability. And all this should be observe along with privacy of the users.
