Freedom of expression or freedom to bleed through thousand cuts.

Making India bleed through thousand cuts:

Zia-ul Haq, the then dictator of Pakistan had formulated the above policy to make India bleed through a thousand cuts after he realised that Pakistan can not win any conventional war with it’s mighty neighbour. Search the above phrase and there will be hundreds of articles highlighting above policy and concluding that the terrorism unleashed through borders is the result of that policy. They are only half correct. Terrorism is official policy of Pakistan to deal with all neighbours.

The creation of ‘Pakistan’ which literally mean “Pure Land” is itself is a hate speech to the rest of world which is automatically termed impure. But the task of Islam/Pakistan is not complete.The Pakistan looks for “Takmeel-e-Pakistan” which means perfection. It will happen when all the Muslim in the world comes together. Can you guess what this “togetherness” will do? No marks for guessing. It is a hush talk of what ISIS dare to speak without mincing words.

The creation of Pakistan saw murder of million and exodus of Millions of Hindu/Sikh/minorities other than Muslims from West Punjab (and East Bengal) which was declared Pakistan. A state born with violence and whose first policy decision was to attack its minorities and second was to attack Kashmir, can not be expected shun violence. Therefore the crucial question is: “What are the above said thousand cuts?

Secret Session by UK Supreme Court: reminiscent of Dark Ages.

King-courtiersWhat is the difference between Persecution and Prosecution?

Persecution is a process of punishing a person found guilty but prosecution is a process of finding if a person is guilty by providing fair trial. The recent decision of UK Supreme Court to conduct a secret session for first time, is reminiscent of dark ages of 15th Century and the procedure adopted by church at that time to persecute people. Even if an isolated incident may not have strong bearing but as a court of record it has set a most undesirable precedent which shall have far reaching consequences for courts in all jurisdiction.
Secrecy and Natural Justice or Audi Alteram Partem were never bed fellows. In fact they do not see each other, eye to eye.

Art, Obscenity, Philosophy, Poetry and freedom of expression.

Pablo Picasso, a renowned artist said,

Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with those not sufficiently prepared.

Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art.”

Art, to every artist, is a vehicle for personal expression. An aesthetic work of art has the vigour to connect to an individual sensory, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
