Fundamental Duties are not mandatory in India, it doesn’t interpret that they are not in context of any situation. A person should be disciplined while using his/her rights.

Do you think that after WTC attacks, if someone expressed his/her views in public that Taliban is the pedigree of US policy, who would left him/her free. even knowing that the fact is correct and everyone has right to speak.

The metaphor only suggests that at the time of death of Bal Thackrey, the situation of mumbai was critical and that’s the reason 20000 policemen were deployed, and even knowing this factor, was this necessary for someone to express his feeling on the behalf of freedom of speech? Who would be responsible for any unwanted aftermath of such freedom of speech factor ??

That’s why it’s called freedom of speech. Thanks for sharing your speech, meanwhile. Please come back – I love to see people reading here.

In such a case it was unwarranted from that girl to express such immature opinion. Free speech right should not be used wrongly.

Is this necessary to speak on every and each topic even not understanding a bit about it. If the girl didn’t know about the sentiments of 20 lakhs people who attended the funeral on their own wish, how could she able to comment on the situation.
“FIRST LEARN THEN SPEAK” . After igniting a lighter at petrol pump you can’t give the excuse that you don’t know hydrocarbons are inflammable.
