Can our right to liberty be breached because of a social media post? That’s been the question about freelance journalist Prashant Kanojia’s arrest over a social media post where he had shared a video of a woman telling reporters that she wishes to marry Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

On 11 June, the Supreme Court ordered Kanojia’s immediate release after his wife filed a petition against his judicial custody. But most importantly, the SC didn't appreciate how Kanojia was put into judicial custody over his Facebook post.

In The Big Story podcast, we try to analyse what the Supreme Court's order said about Kanojia's arrest and how it might help in prevention of future arrests over social media posts in India. Tune in!
