It is not a license but a responsibility!

Freedom of Speech is not a freedom to be a bully. One has no right to use it as a license to harass, abuse and dehumanise others without repercussions. With this freedom there comes responsibility. 

Raising voices for freedom of speech is a new cool these days. Free speech has catalysed enough hatred and we all have witnessed retaliation. I completely condemn going against the law or taking law in one’s hands. However, there should be a line between hate speech and free speech. It is the time we start putting our differences aside and promote what we love instead of bashing what we hate.
