Sibal, there is a difference between Prophet Mohammed and Sonia Gandhi
A "top" Indian functionary (whatever that is) is reported to have said:
“What do you think about these derogatory pictures of the Prophet Mohammed, the (Indian) prime minister and the Congress president? Anybody will feel outraged. The government of India does not believe in censorship. But sensitivity and feelings of different communities cannot be allowed to be hurt. They (the Internet companies) host these sites and they must regulate it (the content),” a top official functionary said." [Source]
The Indian government, led by that clown Kapil Sibal, is engaged in a battle with Facebook for allowing "alleged derogatory, defamatory and inflammatory content about religious figures and Indian leaders such as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi on the Web".
Sibal, you clown, Prophet Mohammed is in a TOTALLY different league to Sonia Gandhi. You may not know the difference but the people of India do.
Good judgement is expected from those who try to defame Mohammed. While such actions don't violate the principles of freedom of speech, they are abominable and must be condemned (not censored).
However, there is simply no protection for those who head criminal organisations – people like Sonia Gandhi and MMS (I speak from direct personal experience of the criminality of Congress).
Plus, in politics all views must be allowed expression. There are no protections (or even the presumption of respect accorded to religious leaders) in politics.
The Sonia and MMS led Congress has forgotten entirely the history of the Indian National Congress and its fight against British censorship and oppression in India. Do they want India to become an Afghanistan, a China?
Let there be freedom of speech, including total freedom to "defame" the CORRUPT AND CRIMINAL LEADERS OF INDIA.
Vote out the Congress in 2014. That is the ONLY way to get rid of these scum.
Unfortunately, there are not many good alternatives for India – yet. FTI
is still assembling. So please step forward and join FTI, if you want to ensure freedom of speech and good governance in India.
