EDITORIAL

Dear readers,

We do not believe in practicing secularism by not supporting any religion, but by supporting all religions alike.

This is also why the Right to Freedom of Speech and Expression needs to be exercised with greater caution here because freedom to offend is not the part and parcel of the freedom to speech and expression in this country. 

This means that not only is one not allowed to defame people or commit contempt of court, but one is also not at liberty to offend the religious sentiments of the people because religion has always been an integral part of our social lives, and the founding fathers of the Indian Constitution were conscious of the fact. This explains to a large extent as to why we did not want to let Rushdie attend the Jaipur Festival. His very presence seemed to unsettle a particular community.

However, despite there being some amount of justification, it would still be difficult to say that it was not excessive to prevent him from attending the Jaipur Festival without any evidence of his intending to say or do anything offensive or  inflammatory.

(Manish Arora)
