    Expression freedom is limited in certain matters I think.Some can say anything.

    Freedom of expression is not absolute. You cannot defame any one, attack religious sentiments, incite people to do unlawful activity or challenge the sovereignty of nation.

    Like all other rights it should be used judiciously and should not be looked upon as a licence to indulge in expressing whatever one intends to express without a sense of responsibility especially in matters of national interest.

    I think her profession itself is having full rights to say or write their opinion...and i dont think she havent done anything wrong in expressing her opinion...

    hatred speech are however not welcomed...but if any country is not able to stop such things why are they taking Roy so seriously..?

    I think being a writer doesn't entitle her any special rights or privileges in the eye of law! A writer is entitled to his or her views strictly keeping the relevant provisions of our constitution and relevant laws.

    I cannot take a particular stand on it as I chose to be ignorant about the controversy that happened.

    But I still believe that with rights comes duties. So, though everyone is free to exercise their right to speech they should not forget their duties towards nation. Both should go hand in hand.

    We should treat our nation like a family. I mean If I can avoid hurting sentiments of my family by keeping mum then I would gladly do so and forget about my right to speech.

    Anyways being said all that I am not favoring anyone in this debate as I am totally ignorant of what happened. Though the above things would have been my parameter if I were to take sides.

    I think I am also exercising my right to speech ;)

    Though everybody has the freedom of speech she being a writer should not raise issues that will disrupt the harmony.I consider this as publicity rather than national interest.

    I agree. Freedom of speech is subject to honoring sovereignty of nation, law of land and need for harmonious relations. Let Arundhati not forget the fate of Taslima Nasreen who exceeded her limits and annoyed a community.
