Date: 18 November 2016

Country: UK, London

Hate_Spin_Book_Launch“Take a stand against hate speech. Never report it neutrally” – this is professor Cherian George’s message to the media. At the launch of his new book Hate Spin: The Manufacture of Religious Offense and its Threat to Democracy, George argued political and civic responses are required in order to develop and maintain a culture of tolerance and openness to others. Further, he asserted that legal restrictions are often ineffective and should be a last resort in open societies. "What is the most needed are equal rights and discrimination laws," believes George.

His new book was launched during the Inter Faith Week in the UK that aims to enable greater interaction between people of different backgrounds. It also celebrates diversity and interfaith dialogue, as well as understanding between people of different religious and non-religious beliefs.
