So my former thread silently disappears. Again, I seek and inquire understanding with the following questions: What are the Qur'an verses or Hadith that call for or support censorship? Is a Kafir not a person who hides, denies, or covers the truth? Is that not a person who censors? Doesn't even the smallest of infants who have learned very little of this world still have a truth to tell? Doesn't even the vile, the liar, the thief, the rapist, the murderer who has or might do wrong in this world still have a truth to tell? Should there be a human punishment for censoring a truth? Should there be a human punishment for telling a lie? Any person with any opinion or insight with Islam please respond. Thank you.
