FREEDOM OF SPEECH4INTRODUCTIONThis article talks about the freedom of speech in Malaysia. Recent incidents in thecountry have not given a positive impact to the world about their freedom to express in thecountry. For example- the reporters are charged under cases if they speak against the governmentor the power in charge. The constitution of Malaysia officially has given the statement thatpeople of the country have a right to speak and express them on any matter and form tradeunions based on like professions. But, on the other hand, it also restricts the limits of their rightsunder the Section 2, which prohibits any person living in Malaysia from speaking or planningagainst the constitution or the government of the country. As per the constitution, this is for theinterest and safety of the national security and also for bringing a sense of respect to thegovernment.The constitution as well as the other Laws has a provision and rights to seek and punishthe ones who are found to be misbehaving with the freedom that they have got. They also have aright to punish the ones who are found exceeding their rights and taking the government forgranted. Basically, the government doesn’t support people speaking up on controversial issuesthat are related to the special favors and rights offered to the native people of Malaysia.It is often stated that Malaysia is a multiracial society. There are often conflicts betweenraces, and the country requires laws, which stop the spread of racial prejudice and bigotry ofreligious views. This is why the constitution prohibits public speeches that advocate or talk aboutforcibly causing the downfall of the Malaysian federation[ CITATION The14 \l 16393 ].There, in Malaysia, political speech is not prohibited in the country but has its limits.These speeches must be circumscribed by the limits of racial harmony and national stability.
