Q.

Is unlimited freedom the root cause for all problems in India? Blasphemy is considered freedom of expression here and goes unpunished. If any one commits treason that is freedom of action that rarely get any punishment. Your views?

People think that liberty is freedom. Even the GOI has failed to clearly define it leading to chaotic condition of innumerable definitions of freedom. To add fuel to the fire, law enforcement has always been lax and the judiciary takes its own time to take a decision.

3.The right to freedom from exploitation
4.The right to freedom of religion

People have misinterpreted the word 'freedom' for licentiousness...; right, it's this licentiousness that has given rise to all kinds of problems in India....; one's freedom shd not deter another's freedom....., that's what democracy says.......in the name of ''freedom of expression'' people create all pandemonium and go scot-free......., this is too unfortunate....!! plotting a treason or conspiring can in no way be called 'freedom of action'....., no body has an authority to kill people or destroy one's peace by any action of his......; there is law and order in the country, which one must abide by ...........and this is done only traitors who shd by all means be treated with right punishment........

Its not unlimited freedom, but misinterpretation of meaning of freedom that is creating more problem.
