My opinion: Freedom of expression is a Utopian concept. Do you agree?I could not utter a single word against the Chemistry professor of our College. Throughout our Graduation, she went on teaching kinetic theory of gases. Why? Because she was the incharge of practical sessions. Talking against her would surely cause problem in practical examination of the University. An armed forces officer never imagines to talk against his CO. We can't say anything directly against our boss or colleagues in our office. 'Mango-people' like me can never directly criticize any caste, community or religion.
There are various limitations involved. All the limitations are not related to law. We have various limitations imposed by the society. There are various limitations imposed by our elders. We are afraid of various repurcussions.
So, although we champion Freedom of expression, it is not at all achievable. It is not achievable in our family, in our locality, in our society, in our country. So, Freedom of expression is a Utopian concept.
Members, do you agree?
