  2. Ehsan Sehgal:

    Indeed, terrorism stays terrorism, whether by the evil individuals, organizations, or by the devil-minded states; terrorism is not only with weapons; terrorists also demonstrate that with tongue, writing, and art, which cause significant damage more than other deeds and objects. Therefore, one should learn and understand the differential between the context of that before advocating for the right of the freedom of press and speech. Factually, hurting, insulting, and hate speech in whatever shapes and forms, against a particular minority or a majority' religious, cultural, and social values, endorsing as a right and a concept of freedom show and prove an idiot's idiocy, nothing than that. Never justify your hegemony and self-victimization and immoral practices upon others' values since that spread hatred and terrorism inside and outside the states; consequently, you are responsible and accountable for that, not terrorists.
