Right to hurt religious sentiments
We all have been given some rights, and i think the right to freedom of speech is essentially the most important one, because that gives me the right to write shit here. It gives the right to express no matter whatever shitty thoughts i might have. But that freedom is just name sake, i dont actually have a right to say that advani is a madarchod cunning old man or neither do i have a right to say that barkha dutt is a attention seeking rand. On top of that i dont have a right to say that prophet mohammed (may shit be upon him) was a nymphomanic and paedophile who had sex with 10 year old girls. There is a terms of service that i agreed to while signing up with blogger account which prohibits me from using content that might hurt religious sentiments.
Whats the big deal about religious sentiments, why should people get angry when i say ram ki maa ka lund or when i say Marry was a prostitute and she had no real idea who jesus’s real father was. why do we have to give so much importance to religious sentiments. Arent we supposed to nurture religious tolerance. How can we have religious tolerance if the muslims are up ready to bomb the world at the drop of a hat. And those right wing hindu madarchods who dont know a shit about hinduism mobilise army of duffers for their personal agenda. And what about the marathi madarchod manoos raj thackerey denying the fundamental right of freedom to move anywhere in the country. Why dont we fucking act upon them.
Why does this indian english media always has to keep the job of uchking the ghittas of muslims as if gandhi had given his job to them after he died. Why the word M is used for muslim, does it means Madarchod or what?.
What is all this leading too, this is all leading to restriction on freedom of speech. There had been instances in the past when barkha lodi filed a case against a blogger for spoiling her name, and there had been a time when the muslims attacked the office of statesman for publishing a article which said some facts about mohammed (may shit be upon him), and more recently hand of a profession in kerala was chopped off because there was a question in the examination paper which reportedly hurted religious sentiments. All this injustice is happening because we have stopped exercising our right to free speech. How many blogs will they shut down if everyone starts hurting religious sentiments. How many throats will they cut if everyone gets on to street shouting mohammed is madarchod.
The problem will become graver. Word M will disappear too like the word Muslim. It would be impossible to have discussion on religions, Whats wrong with burning kuran when they could burn satanic verses. Why taslima nasreen cant live in India, why great painter like M F hussain ( i seriously forgot the name. checked the paper i remembered his name was in papers today i think i am getting that disease.. again cant remember.. now i m begining to worry) have to stay out of the country, whats wrong in the depecition of bharat mata in his painting. why a fine arts student chandra mohan was beaten and painting burned, why was the dean of the faculty shivaji panicker suspended. Why cant religion be expressed throught painting, why cant it be discussed. Why those danish cartoonists cant depecit a caricature of mohammed.
I think we bloggers have a responsibility, and the first step begins with hurting religious sentiments, and if we dont do that now and we would never be able to do it in future. You worry about losing readership, do u think people wont follow your blog. You are wrong, there are still people in this world who appreciate truth, who know things really dont matter. The world is becoming a more restrictive instead of opening up. This is no fucking china or middle east, we do have a namesake democracy for hells sake.
One of the blogger from middle east has been jailed and his blog has been shut down. Check out the link to know how you can help http://freeabdulemam.wordpress.com/
P.S. Do recommend some good blogs to follow. 90% of the blogs that i used to follow is dead. This twitter is killing bloggers
