Quote from Kenan Malik 

"It is the freedom to blaspheme, to transgress,
to move beyond the pale, that is at the heart
of all intellectual, artistic and political endeavor.
Far from censoring offensive speech,
a vibrant and diverse society should encourage it.
In any society that is not uniform, grey and homogeneous,
there are bound to be clashes of viewpoints."
