Timesnow Debate Moderated by Arnab Goswami on the limits of Freedom of Expression & limits of Freedom of Protest.

Rahul Easwar - " We are against anyone misusing freedom of expression & freedom to protest. Both these rights are not absolute. We are against some of Hussain's paintings, not the painter; we are against Satanic Verses, not Salman Rusdie; against Taslima's comments on Prophet Mohammed (SAW), not the person but the action.

Religious Fanatics & Extremists use such opportunities to exercise fanaticism & score brownie points. Secular Fundamentalists who hate all Religions & Spiritual Traditions also exploit such opportunities to gain brownie points.

We need to be in the middle, balance between Religious Fanaticism & Secular Fundamentalism.

" I am talking about a Position with Clinical & Surgical Precision, a Position that will undermine Religious Fanaticism & Secular Fundamentalism. A Position that will be ahead of Hindu Communalism, Islamic Extremism, Christian Conversionism & Far Leftist Secular Fundamentalism "
