La liberté d'expression en islam / Freedom of speech in Islam

Subject

Description

The question of freedom is a universal one. It is asked to all societies, in a way that is at the same time identical and different. What can be expressed and what should we hide? Who can express him or herself and who is forbidden of doing so? If the classical age also had its 'free thinkers', it is during the nineteenth century that Islam (as a large part of Europe did) discovered the concept of modern liberty. Today, most of the Islamic constitutions stipulate and grant freedom of expression.
Nonetheless, these legal mechanisms are limited by two facts that affects the freedom of expression: one is general (the use of Sharia as a source of legislation), the other peculiar and quite recent: the respect of the 'sacred' or the prohibition of blasphemy.
