So where is the line for 'Freedom of Speech' in a Democracy?

Recommended Posts

I know the line 'Freedom of Speech' is infamous in this current BJP era but are we so sure that few people are NOT taking advantage of such freedom. From chanting 'Bharat ke sau tukde' to supporting Afzal Guru, everything has been said in the name of freedom of speech. But the question is, how far?

 

I was going through the tweets of Shehla Rashid, and she openly calls PM Modi a mass murderer.

 

I am not a lawyer, but my understanding is that only court has the right to provide verdict. And supreme court of the country, has given clean chit to Modi years ago for 2002 riots. So can anyone still call PM of the nation a 'MASS MURDERER' openly in the name of freedom of speech and get away with it? I do not see any media outrage, candle light protests, award wapasi against such tweets. Imagine its the other way round, and some ABVP guy tweets something derogatory like the above against minority community. Media would have gone bonkers.

 

Lets look at another tweet, where she is openly accusing union ministry of planning assassination of the PM.

Can anyone make such bold fancy statements in social media which has no proof what so ever and when questioned, they get away due to their freedom of speech? Or in the above tweet, she is trying to say that Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated by someone from Congress??

 

People like Shehla are so lucky they live in a country like India where they can get away by saying anything in the name of the freedom of speech. Imagine if anyone in Saudi Arab openly accusing the King? Surely that person will be jailed or hanged the next minute.

 

So my question is what is freedom of speech and where should anyone draw a line in a Democratic country like India?

Clearly you are a brainwashed islamophobic, anti Dalit, Hindutva upper caste propagandist who sees everything with his saffron tinted glasses on.

 

What about those poor Kashmiri Children massacred by Indian army on a continuous basis? 

 

Ms Rashid has every right to spout anything she likes as long as her legs are wide open for those sophisticated Lutyens gents.

Fist and foremost let us not compare ourselves with a hellhole like Saudi Arabia, human rights is an alien concept in that cursed Kingdom. We need better standards.

 

I am all for freedom of speech but there should be limits. We aren't a safe and secured 1st world country like Norway or Belgium that we can be so liberal, tolerant and forgiving....human rights can't be a free for all package here. We are in a precarious position surrounded by dangerous enemies and house many internal enemies who want the nation to implode. No need to go the extreme China route but social media should be monitored more closely than presently. This is a country where social media posts have resulted in terror recruitment, murders, riots, mob violence, lynchings, arson etc so need to tread with caution. Hate speech (by all sections) should attract punitive measures and so should rumor mongering and anti national messages. Hope GOI makes/amends a relevant law to make these offenses non bailable, this circus can't carry on.  This will be tough to implement but GOI needs to focus its energy to get this done, social media is here to stay and is a dangerous tool when operated by the wrong hands.

 

Coming to Shehla she is head b!tch of the tukde tukde gang, ideally people like her and Umar/Anirban should be given the royal Indian Police treatment or maybe even forced into silence. What is IB/NIA doing I can't understand? Maybe they have a deeper plan and are using these idiots as bait to catch the more dangerous culprits/anti nationals hiding behind the shadows, that is the only logical explanation I can think of. I can't tell you how much I hate some of these people masquerading as NGOs/activists/human rights orgs/commies etc. I hate them more than Pak based elements like Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar. I can make peace with the existence of external enemies but never with internal traitors.

 

The 'mass murderer' tweet by SR is contempt of court because Modi has been cleared by the courts. I have seen her and her likeminded circle mocking/undermining court judgements and casting doubt on the integrity/character of judges everytime they don't get favorable verdicts. I can't understand why the judges can't suo motu take action against such elements for contempt of court. They didn't hesitate to take action against Justice Karnan for contempt of court and the likes of SR have said far worse things. Ek ko daal do jail ke andar aur baaki sab line mein aa jaayenge. Gadkari has promised to take legal action against the witch, hope he proceeds in that direction in right earnest. No mercy on such dangerous people in our midst enjoying all the freedoms Mother India offers whilst trying to break her from within.

This concept of freedom of speech has limitations in Europe as well. Yesterday only German Fans booed Gundogan in Germany's game against Saudi Arabia because of his stance in favor of Erdogan.

Him and Ozil has been repeatedly criticized in the media for openly declaring their allegiance for Erdogan inspite of being born and bred in Germany.

 

I mean I challange anyone to openly doubt the veracity of holocaust claims in western europe. That guy would be put behind the bars for ever.

Of course it's not absolute. Infact no fundamental right except maybe art 17(abolition of Untouchablity) is sacrosanct. They are liable to be suspended under various circumstances.

FOE is fine... This present Govt can’t even ban NDTV for one day, because of over reaction & protests.

Legal recourse should be used by individuals against the uttering of people like Sehla Rashid... that’s the best option. Don’t involve Govt in it. It already has too many issue to deal with...

BTW Sehla will be in active politics by next year like Jignesh Mewani...

It’s the failure of the current dispensation to not able to use intelligence agencies effectively. No point blaming others...

The answer is simple - any libel is off-limits that is directed against a person or a corporation that exists.


Ie, saying Modi is a mass-murderer, is libel. And if this was a western nation with fast justice system, Modi would probably sue her for libel.

Same goes for any person, any corporation that exists today. Ie(assuming all the following statements are factually false), if i say ' Rahul Dravid had sex with me'/ ' Tendulkar hit my dog'/ ' Preity Zinta killed my cat'/'McDonalds put poison in my food', etc., are not protected under freedom of speech, as they are specific allegations that are not true and are damaging to the person.


However, if i said ' Preity Zinta hit on me/Rahul Dravid was suggestive around me', they are permissible under freedom of speech, as those are subjective interpretations and both parties can be reconciled by the 'its your opinion' paradigm.

Same goes with saying 'British East India Company was a saintly corporation/Mohammed was a maniac/Buddha was fat'  etc - all these allegations, even if false, are directed towards entities that do not exist anymore. Hence permissible.

Exactly my opinion. 

 

Western countries have dealt with this question of freedom of speech in their courts intensively and there is almost a clear picture now what comes under freedom of speech and what does not. 

 

Using Agencies is only going to make them more infamous. This is happening in Pakistan at moment, where new Cyber crime bill was introduced. And now Agencies are abducting people (journalists, politicians, normal citizens, any one who dare to criticize Army or agencies). 

 

It may benefit BJP temporarily, but will make agencies infamous like CBI has been used by BJP against the opponents and thus becoming disputed. 

 

===

 

Please excuse me for telling my full observation. Please bear it even if it goes against your opinion. 

 

Let me point it out that freedom of Speech and sloppy Indian judiciary are working both ways at moment. 

 

If Shela Rasheed is claiming Modi to be mass murderer, then BJP supporters are also claiming Piryanka Chopra to be traitor of India and and enemy's agent. If true Western values are applied, then both of these cases will become criminal. 

 

Moreover,  telling any Indian (Muslim/Liberal) that he is a Pakistani and should leave India and go to Pakistan, will also become crime and will come under the hate speech. 

 

Sure, if you don't want JUSTICE (which is a 2 way game), but want to play one sided game (i.e. BJP should be allowed to do so, but Liberals should not, under the pretext of Dangers to India and Hinduism), then it is another thing.  But personally I don't support it while it is not in long term benefit of India and it will extremely polarize Indian society with no trust in the Indian State organisations, even no trust in the judiciary then. It is very important that people do have trust in the justice, otherwise they become open rebels.

Putting your personal opinion in public domain as a fact is something which is the main reason for all conflicts.

 

If Shehla would have said, " In my opinion a mass murderer is trying to play victim" the psychological impact would have been less.

 

The problem with elitist mindset lutyens liberal is that they think they are "different". They like to believe that they are at higher intellectual level and refuse to mingle with masses (or they call bhakts). That is the reason they put their opinion so strongly as if it is a fact. This makes masses abuse them and then their hatred increases. Unfortunately there is no solution for this.

I also believe that there is lack of Education too in this matter. Politicians, especially the young ones like Shela Rasheed don't know exactly how to represent their opinions without colliding with the laws. 

 

Media should educate itself and also educate the politicians about this matter.

This anti-national creature has been spreading lies about our armed forces on a daily basis, the JNU habit of demonizing our braves, *ing bitch, should be behind bars. She has history in these fake news matters, been called out many time....like that lie about Kashmiri girls trapped in Dehradun hostel which Uttarakhand police denied. No wonder she and Shah Faesal have so much common ground.

How is this biatch allowed to roam free? 

This is a clear case of hate speech. 

Army should sue her straight away and make sure she has to pay a hefty fine and spend time behind the bars so that these jokers in future think twice before peddling fake news so liberally. 

 

Now you know what, this story would probably be picked by Washington Post or Bloomberg soon who on the basis of few unverified tweets would go on a rampage against Indian Govt with accusations such as human rights violations and what not. 

 

The world is truly a messed up place.Everyday I find myself agreeing with Donald Trump on his stance on blatant bias of leftist media.

one jumped in river while being chased by security men while other died of heart attack. In both cases, A&E department couldn’t come to rescue as for as boy had no more then 100 seconds to survive, in case of cardiac arrest survival chance is allmost zero if cPR is not given within 5 mins.

what were fellow stone pelters doing with his brethren? How does she expect security personnel save them when stone pelters are busy throwing bricks at security personnel.

 

i challenge her or anyone supporting her view to try to save person going through cardiac arrest.

PS: I have seen cardiac arrest in my gym and I can say achchee acchoon ki phat ke haath mein aa jaati Hai.

A great example of freedom of speech on this forum was just seen, when a thread was disappeared because some Pidis decided to bark about its subject matter, ie "Over-breeding". These same Pidis, as low IQ as they are, love to give gyaan to others about how open-minded they are and how other people are ignorant or bigots. :fishing:

 

Close your ears to anything uncomfortable and then bark about how liberal/objective/neutral you are. Pidis are a rare breed indeed. :hysterical:

WTF is this admins? Is this a Pakistani forum?

@Tibarn @Stradlater @sergio04  @Ranvir (OP of the thread in question I think) ....this is really getting on my nerves now. ICF was never like this, the least admins/mods can do here is inform us about the contentious parts, maybe edit (even delete if you wish) some of the parts so that there is no clash with forum policy/guidelines. Why delete an entire thread altogether, some of us waste 20-30 minutes, maybe more to write a detailed post and boom the thread is gone. And the subject matter in the thread in question was legit.

 

To those who claim to be liberal and open minded, why so much intolerance when a topic which you might find uncomfortable is raised by others. If you are open minded, put forth your arguments, debate, shut up the other party....else stay out of the thread. Why force your echo chamber decision to prevent other posters from expressing their FOS?

Coincidently, I had come across this being pitched as one of the national security threats.  Wanted to bring it up. It becomes too illiberal to talk about it. But these ostrichs don't know they are the biggest threats to our existence. The population control bill being discussed by Modi govt is being seen as a front to address this issue.

Honestly, from my view it has always been like this, since I joined. The whole of the "forum guidelines" is a joke. When I have asked the mods/admins before about what is and isn't allowed to be posted, as they were liberally deleting some of my posts, the only thing they say is that one can post freely until someone reports a post or topic. Literally anyone can whinge about anything and they will delete a post, no matter how informative it is. Evens posts without harsh language or what could be construed as inflammatory content can just randomly disappear because someone decided to complain.  

 

 I've seen people complain about the forum posts quality going down, and it's obvious why. What exactly is the point of positively contributing to a forum when any idiot can get entire threads deleted or shut down.

That would require actual effort. Why actually engage people with different thoughts than oneself? It's far easier to morally-grandstand and get posts deleted. Such pathetic people lack the mental acuity to have an intelligent discussion, so I guess one shouldn't expect any better. 

 

Unfortunately for them, India isn't ICF. You can shut people up on this forum, but it won't work everywhere. Neither on the internet nor in the real world. 

 

I may make a thread on DFI on this topic just for the lulz now.

A real pity it was deleted. That was a rich topic, with many povs, historical analysis/events/data, models/stats etc. People were eager to participate but then some admin took a decision which I strongly object. ICF has numerous flaws but one thing going its way for so long had been FOE, threads weren't dumped just because some posters got offended. Worst case we wouldn't respond to certain topics, but delete->no way. 

 

Underlying culture of this forum is to debate, bring various opinions, things sometimes heat up but hey we Indians love to argue. If admins want to take a different course even the few redeeming features of ICF will be at risk.

It had something to do with the Kashmiri separatists IIRC and I think we endorsed their brutal suppression by the army or something like that.

'The Outsider'...a lunatic LW asshole who is close to site owners.

Threatened to file FIR against me and Strad because we dared to make our displeasure about JNU tukde tukde gang known, especially Umar Khalid...exact thread I don't remember but pretty sure it was something anti-national (Kashmir separatism) involving Khalid and his father's link with SIMI.

It is a genuine concern for me. Whenever I see a Muslim woman in her 30s she has a minimum of 3 children even if she and her husband is from an educated background. All other groups are having two or less. I seriously worry about the future. Even when they are 10% of an area they demand halal food which is then pushed onto all of us.

Ha that one. He deliberately put words in our mouth that we were advocating genocide of Muslims in India just because of our stance of dealing with separatists and terrorists with a iron fist.

Unfortunately for them, India isn't ICF. You can shut people up on this forum, but it won't work everywhere. Neither on the internet nor in the real world. 

 

I may make a thread on DFI on this topic just for the lulz now.

Freedom of speech should not have any limits but that concept works in developed nations.

 

In a country like ours there have to be a lot of  boundaries. There is no value of life. You can instigate any group of people to kill on caste and religion. Lot of jobless,lukkha type folk who have nothing to lose and thanks to our system so far nothing to gain either  . Look at Arab countries, they fund all the terrorism in the world but almost all terrorists come from Pakistan and African countries, that is because they have a lot to lose.
