UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, denouncing the anti-Islam film as “disgraceful, shameless”, said Wednesday that “free speech” has limits, especially when religious beliefs are involved.“All of this freedom of expression should not be abused by individuals. … Some people abuse this freedom. This effort to provoke, to humiliate others by using (religious) beliefs cannot be protected in such a way.” The film, posted on the Internet under several titles, insulted the holy Prophet (PBUH) and portrayed him in a negative manner.“Freedoms of expression should be and must be guaranteed and protected, when they are used for common justice, common purpose,” Ban told a news conference on Wednesday. “When some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected in such a way. My position is that freedom of expression, while it is a fundamental right and privilege, should not be abused by such people, by such a disgraceful and shameful act,” he said.He said similar kind of outrage and anger was expressed by people when cartoons of the holy Prophet were circulated.“Now, it is very disgraceful and shameful that still people are provoking the values and beliefs of other people... This must stop. It is very important that all people around the world should have due respect and deeper understanding of the values and beliefs and tradition and history of other people and other groups of communities.”With over 123 heads of state/government and foreign ministers arriving here for the General Debate during the 67th session of the UN General Assembly next week, Ban said he would join the world leaders in speaking out “against those who, in response to such provocations, fan those flames further still.”
