Pillay: Hatred, free speech don't mix
A top human rights official said from U.N. headquarters that world leaders need to find ways to ensure freedom of expression doesn't equate to violence.
U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said there are signs of growing tensions between freedom of expression and religion.
"I have publicly regretted or condemned various displays of religious hatred or bigotry and have also consistently urged religious and political leaders to condemn the violence, including the loss of life that has taken place in reaction to such incidents in various parts of the world," she said.
