Our civilization is 5000 years old; we are people of unity in diversity, we have never been hostile towards different ideas. It is also wished in the Rig-Veda, “Aa no bhadrah kravo yannu vishwath. Since ancient times, free speech was preserved in Rig-Veda, Gita and Asoka inscriptions in India, which is relevant even today. In India, since ancient times, the consciousness of expression has been mentioned in religious texts, literature, inscriptions that the right of speech of all persons was respected and the other side was also heard. In the medieval period, saints like Kabir and Tulsi had strongly criticized the evils prevailing in the society and also opposed religious hypocrisy.
