‘Determine hate speech based on international standards’
There is no definition of hate speech and we should determine hate speech based on international standards, Bangladesh and South Asia Regional Director of Article 19 Tahmina Rahman has said. Any speech that hurts someone cannot be considered as hate speech, she said during a workshop of Article 19 on “Mitigation of Hate Speech in the form of Peaceful and Tolerant Society” on Sunday. “According to international standers, hate speeches will have to fall under six different categories,” she said. Robaet Ferdous, associate professor of Department of Mass Communication and Journalism at University of Dhaka, said: “We will have to be even more tolerant to establish a peaceful society. The main characteristic of a democratic society is that it accommodates different ideologies.” Many other prominent personalities attended the workshop. Article 19 is a British human rights organization with a specific mandate and focus on the defense and promotion of freedom of expression and freedom of information worldwide founded in 1987.
