Russia’s blunt stance on blasphemy

Russian President Vladimir Putin has spoken out against blasphemy, saying he does not believe in any freedom to insult the Prophet Muhammad.

Speaking at the annual news conference in Moscow, Vladimir Putin said that insulting the Prophet Muhammad could not be considered as freedom of speech because it was a serious violation of religious freedom and the sacred feelings of Muslims. Hurts

The Russian president said such actions provoke extremist retaliation, a clear example of which is the attack on the editorial office of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris.

He said that freedom of expression has its own definition and some limitations and under the guise of it the views of others should not be insulted.

Vladimir Putin said that Russia is a multi-ethnic and multi-faith state and its people are accustomed to respect each other’s traditions.
