Free speech is a very basic human right preceded only by right to life.
.
Only limitation in free speech is thus when by saying something one causes grievous bodily harm by his/her speech. That is; ask someone directly to go kill someone else.
.
Otherwise FREE SPEECH IS NOT LIMITED BY THE CONTENT ON THE SPEECH ITSELF. Hence it is ok to say fck god, or say mohammad or was a pedo, ram was a bad hubby to sita or did not exist, or someone's mom is a prostitute. A listener may not like to hear it, may chose to take insult or umbrage, can retort back with his own speech, but still HAS TO SUPPORT THE RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH OF THE SPEAKER and his right to say what ever he she wants to.

Less than that, you are not civilized (or Hindu), for you have not understood the most basic idea of civility (or civil code / Dharma)- which is free speech.

Those defamation laws should be abrogated. Any use of those laws is misuse of law,

And abuse of free speech.
