We are witnessing a battle over the concept of human rights, says Freedom Rights cofounder Paulina Neuding, in an interview to Swedish journal Svensk Tidskrift.
Increasingly, calls for censorship are being camouflaged as a human rights issue and as protection of minorities, says Freedom Rights cofounder Paulina Neuding, in an interview in this week’s issue of the Swedish journal Svensk Tidskrift. Islamists argue in terms of human rights when they use UN institutions to push for a prohibition against blasphemy in the West. In France, calls for boycott of Israeli goods have been deemed criminal incitement to discrimination on the grounds of nationality. We must not give in to calls for censorship in the name of tolerance and human rights, Paulina Neuding argues.
