Freedom House Releases Report on Blasphemy Laws

Freedom House has released Policing Belief: The Impact of Blasphemy Laws on Human Rights, a report examining how “defamation of religion” laws hinder free expression. There is currently a movement to pass an international blasphemy law in the name of promoting social harmony. However, as is revealed in the seven case studies included in this important report, these laws are often unevenly applied, contribute to violence, and lead to self-censorship.
