Everyone should be allowed to say anything they want. However, people should be held accountable for their actions.

For example, if you incite people to violence, that is a crime. If you participate in slander or defamation, these carry potential civil and criminal reprecussions. Everyone is responsible for what they say.

When you train Imams in a certain nation to tell the population things which they know are not true, you almost defeat the entire purpose of Friday prayers.
