As human beings, we are entitled to be universally free from harm that might go against our freedom, dignity, and health. However, in some circumstances, harming someone as a solution to help others keep their freedom, dignity, and health might seem justifiable. For instance, torture has been often been brought to our attention by the media since the events of 9/11 in the United States.

We can all agree that Canada and India are different in many ways such as for their respective history, geographical area, culture, and much more. However, those two seemingly different countries had similar conflicts within the communities living there. In Canada, the French-Canadian nationalist movement brings up the idea that the province of Quebec should be independent from the rest of the country. The reasoning behind it is often due to cultural differences such as the language.

In the vast spectrum of cultures present today in Quebec, is it hard to find common grounds and draw a line between what is acceptable and what should be avoided at all cost. We do thrive to accept and acknowledge different religions, yet it is hard to accommodate in total equality. I believe that debating over religion is unavoidable, being that we cannot satisfy the needs of everybody. Then, where should we draw the line?  Firstly, I believe that the freedom of belief is an important aspect of our multicultural society, as it concerns the rights of everybody and it should be respected.
