British Arab Network Chairman defends the right to offend on BBC Arabic’s Al-Zahira programme23 Jan 2015, by In the Media in
Prime Minister David Cameron has defended the right to “cause offence about someone’s religion” in a free society.
In an interview on the BBC Radio Arabic’s Al-Zahira news programme (mid day news review), Dr. Wafik Moustafa, Chairman of the British Arab Network said: I agree with Prime Minister David Cameron that there is a right to offend as long as it is within the law. Freedom of Speech is a central and cherished value in a free society. When people offend us we must not respond by breaking the law. We have the freedom of speech to respond.
