VIDEO: Why Do We Need Freedom of Speech? Watch Vir Das Nail the Answer in His Potcast!

In a recent video, actor-comedian Vir Das advocates one’s right to freedom of speech by slamming the 'govt/bhakts/trolls'.

A comedian’s job is not limited to entertaining the audience by cracking jokes. It is also to raise questions about the irony and injustice in the world using humour as a tool.

In a recent episode of his web series called Potcast, actor-comedian Vir Das advocates one’s right to freedom of speech and slams the ‘govt/bhakts/trolls’ for their backlash that only ‘answers a question with a counter-question’.

Titled ‘Dear Govt/Bhakts/Trolls – I have Questions’, the video is short, concise and gets straight to the point. There’s no beating around the bush as Das voices his concerns freely and fairly.

Addressing the growing tendency to react in an intolerant manner to anyone whose opinions or arguments make us question our own, he asks a very important question: “If as a citizen I face such backlash for asking small questions, then how will I ask big questions like why can’t two people of the same sex be in love with each other or why can’t we have official sex education in school!”

He also urges everyone to be open towards dialogue and welcome a logical discourse.
