The Conflicts of Freedom of Expression and Religion

Amit Singh



This thesis book is an attempt to explore the tussle between freedom of expression and religion in India. Based on a Case study with small sample size, this study does not claim to fix any problem or to create any new theories. This study has explored perception of Hindu and Muslim graduate students in three universities, located in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, particularly on the conflict between freedom of expression and religious intolerance in India.

This study showed India’s response in tolerating religion over freedom of expression as a product of its unique multicultural situation where dialogues among communities is dialogically constituted and collective principles are generated within a particular moral and political structure. Within scope of Indian style of secularism, as found out in this Case study, absolute freedom of expression is neither required nor possible.
