I have almost screamed several times that freedom of speech is not absolute! i particularly emphasized on that here.
The dutch MP who created an extremely anti muslim film has been denied entry to the UK on grounds of inciting religious hatred. That apart i am impressed by British Foreign Secretary David Milibands example on distinguishing between freedom of speech and the extent to which speech is free..
Foreign Secretary David Miliband told the BBC‘s Hardtalk: “The home secretary made a decision on an individual case as she is required to do.”
He added that the film contained “extreme anti-Muslim hate and we have very clear laws in this country”.
Mr Miliband also said: “We have profound commitment to freedom of speech but there is no freedom to cry ‘fire’ in a crowded theatre and there is no freedom to stir up hate, religious and racial hatred, according to the laws of the land.”
so much for those who think they can bellow CHINTANAYAAA!!! in a loud hoarse voice in public if a VVIP’s garment was comes off!
