Blame it On the Right

Leftists all over India are blaming Rightwing for the ban on a book in Tamil Nadu.

When the book by a Leftist writer gets banned, Leftists suddenly remember Constitution and Freedom of Expression. Actually for the Left, freedom of expression means freedom for the Left alone. It never protests the laws that enable banning of a book. It never opposes the veto the violent mobs enjoy in India against the opinion.

No book must ever be banned. No book. And all laws that enable government to do so, should be repealed.
