Freedom of Expression


- Advertisment -spot_img

“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.”

Freedom is something which has been dreamed for and cherished by not only human beings but all other living beings in the world since time immemorial. History’s record books show us how many great souls suffered how much amount of pain in order to attain the level of freedom we humans enjoy in our world today. Freedom of expression is one vital aspect of the term ‘freedom’. It includes the right to simply speak one’s opinion out however extreme it is and all the creative expressions in the world. Of course there are restrictions, as the general statement goes, one’s freedom to swing his/her hand is only up to his neibhour’s nose. Nobody has any right to hurt others physically or mentally. And there are clear rules and laws enacted to regulate all types of freedom.

Of late unfortunately there has been a kind of intolerance shown towards freedom of expression in the creative field, in the political arena and even in campuses among students. It is really threatening and one is compelled to think whether the world is really heading towards a more civilized state or taking a reverse course. It is very difficult to draw a line between the expressions which hurt a sect of people and which don’t, whatever it may be, what we can ask for is an educated, cultured and tolerant but fearless society.
