1.10. Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1961.-
The primary object of the Criminal Law Amendment Act, 1961 is to punish persons who question the territorial integrity or frontiers of India in a manner prejudicial to the safety and security of the country. Though there is undoubtedly necessity for retaining some of these provisions which have a direct bearing on national security and integrity, in view of the passing of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, some of the provisions of the earlier Act may not be necessary. This question will be considered at the appropriate place.
