Protest Against Freedom Of Speech



Freedom of speech in every country means to articulate opinions and ideas without fear of government or social sanction.It is recognized as a human right under article 19 that”everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference”.Unfortunately,in our country;people use this to harm others.According to Sir John Stuart Mill:”the only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of a civilized community,against his will,is to prevent harm to other.”


People basically wanted their voice to be heard but they do not see how their saying would effect others.As some cultures don’t stomach these types of speeches,you cannot say whatever you think openly,neither against the idea nor in the favor of an idea.For example,if one person is a racist,then he/she should keep thoughts to him/her self.

I believe we should not just focus on being heard,we should focus equally on the opinions of others.
