Freedom of expression should not include making fun of Prophets
Petition Background (Preamble):
It is also purposed that amendment in the constitution of Swedish Government is also going to take effect from 1st Jan. 2011 clearly stating in the Freedom of the Press Act and the Fundamental Law on Freedom of Expression that agencies and other public bodies are prohibited to take action against anyone exercising their freedom of the press or freedom of expression. It is also proposed that there be a penal provision for more serious violations of this prohibition. Equivalent rules are to apply to local government enterprises.
Immoral conduct hurts people not only of one sect but human beings all over the world with living conscience.
We the undersigned request the Swedish Government to refrain the proposal of the Government Bill Constitutional protection concerning freedom of expression (Govt. Bill 2009/10:81). As this will severely affect the harmony of people and spread worldwide hatred between religious, orthodox, liberal and atheist masses. The Swedish Government will have to bear negative consequences of spoiled terms with Muslim countries and its economy is going to be weakened.
