Ahmadiyya Times

Telling the truth should be news – If it happened, it will be here…

Point of view: More respect needed


As a Muslim, I condemn the violent reaction by Muslims in some parts of the world in response to this anti-Islam film. They have acted against the very teachings of the Prophet Muhammad in whose honour they were protesting.

When freedom of speech was first advocated in the 18th and 19th century, it was intended to lead to truth and morality. The cartoons and movies to mock religious leaders achieve neither.

Freedom of speech al-ways conflicts with other values in society, such as peaceful coexistence, and must be balanced. That is why modern democratic governments in one form or another place limits on freedom of speech.

As a Muslim, I condemn the violent reaction by Muslims in some parts of the world in response to this anti-Islam film. They have acted against the very teachings of the Prophet Muhammad in whose honour they were protesting.

Once returning from expedition, a hypocrite used insulting words against the prophet. Muslims were upset and one suggested to kill him.

The prophet did not permit anyone to do so. Islam values freedom of speech in a respectful way.
