We are living in a free world; most of the countries obtain their freedom more than fifty years back. Most of us living today are born in free countries. But are we really free? Relations, religions, caste, society, nationality and morality everything put restriction on us. Although we are living in free nations, yet we are enslaved by different restrictions.
As soon as you impose restriction on an artist, (s)he cease to give extraordinary performances. If a writer starts thinking that I must not write on this topic else someone might be offended then ultimately he will not be able to write anything. Creativity demands freedom. That is the reason, why we find all development in liberal and open societies.
My geographical location restricts me from openly writing about religion. Even mild criticism, for bringing positive outcome, can be dangerous. On top of that, I have self-imposed restriction of not writing anything derogatory or hateful about anyone. From last three days I am looking for something positive and motivating but unfortunately I am still struggling.
What is the purpose of freedom of speech if people are not able to digest mild criticism of their faith or opinion? If you will hide behind your private wall of faith and does not listen to others, you will never know whether you are wrong or other person are wrong. Just by chance, you born in your present religion. Without knowing it, how you can be certain that you were born in right religion. Read your religious books yourself. Learn about it before blindly believing on it. Be a truth seeker, not a blind believer.
