Against selective free speech

Categories: , ,
Right on with reference to recent Supreme Court judgment exonerating M. F. Hussain's paintings:
In free speech, only offensive speech needs protection. Good speech doesn't need any protection, So Indian courts accepting bans on offensive materials like 'The Satanic verses', ....or any such things and ignoring Hindu Gods being caricatured by a Muslim is offensive to Hindus. It's the inconsistency of the Indian courts[, media, political system] and the 'secular' India that is offensive to me. — Source
