What is Liberty and Freedom of Speech

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law

Submitted by Mansoor (Pakistan), Mar 8, 2008 at 02:02

I am constantly witnessing the cry from disbelievers that Muslims are against their liberty, freedom of speech and much more.

Just explain me what is Liberty?

Is liberty is to kill the innocent people of weak countries???
Is liberty is to insult innocent inmates of Abu Ghraib???
Is liberty is to blow Japanese with Atomic Bomb???
Is liberty is to conspire against small nations like Panama and bring perpetual unrest in Central America???
Is liberty is to kill millions of innocent children only on the charge of connection with Taliban???
Is liberty is to undress your daughters, sisters, mothers and bring them to hardcore adult websites for the sake of few dollars?
Is liberty is to share bed with your neighbors, schoolmates, office colleagues, subordinates and practice sexual harassment every where??
Is liberty is to throw your daughter out of your house to sleep with her boyfriend without marrying???
Is liberty is to dump your elders into old houses crying, weeping and missing their loved ones who are enjoying the colors of life without them???

When it comes to freedom of speech?

Is this the freedom of speech is to insult any body's beloved and ideal figure and make disgusting cartoons?

Is this the freedom of speech is to destroy private life of the people who work for humanity especially "Lady Diana"??

Is this the freedom of speech is to bring disgrace and shame to highlight the scandals of popular figures like Bill Clinton to destroy their family life??

If the points mentioned above are the criteria of Liberty and Freedom of Speech then…My foot on is on it!!!!
