I’ve not seen the movie ‘Vishwaroopam. But, I support the freedom of expression, peaceful, for all; that doesn’t mean I agree with what one says/does. Everybody is solely responsible for their acts.
Even if anybody creating art in bad taste, the viewer has the choice of ignoring it. That’s what is the meaning tolerance, which this land has protected for hundreds of years. Now we need to increase the liberty to atain the lost prosperity and freedom.
Say no to state terrorism.
Disgusting to see that an artist, like Kamal Hasan, being forced to leave the country. Are we really progressing? Do we really understand freedom of expression? Who are these thugs, goons to oppress any creative work/thought?
This is the land which gave birth an art like ‘Kamasutra’. This is the land which saw birth over a half a dozen religions.
Dr. Ambedkar rendered a constitution which ensures freedom of speech, expression and profession to every citizen irrespective of gender, creed, religion. And the intolerant fascist forces, which are really very few but united, are attempting to topple the very constitution itself. That is a challenge to sovereignty of this nation and to me it’s no lesser than an emergency. If some thugs are challenging the creative art by violent protests then police should arrest them, and courts should deliver the justice. But they all right to protest, peacefully, at designated public places while making sure not creating nuisance, disturbance to others.
I thought courts are here to upheld the constitution but they seem to have forgotten their job. What role does any court has in liaising? They have to deliver justice and that’s it. No moral policing at all.
But certainly leaving the nation isn’t a solution. Since, he is also part of this nation and should fight back.
