Just imagine what would happen if insulting was made a crime and punishable ?let me list all those who will be behind the bars or who will be punished

  1. All the husbands for insulting their wives at every given chance.
  2. Rest of the men for insulting women by abusing them (verbally as well as physically).
  3. All those political leaders who insult the faith reposed on them by public.
  4. All those friends who insult friendship by cheating on them.
  5. All those children who insult their parents.
  6. All those parents who insults their children by their sarcastic comments or expect much more from their children than they are capable of doing.
  7. All those citizens who insult our legal system by violating the laws.
  8. All those people who insult our religious values by talking against any particular religion or misusing the religious places.
  9. All those women who insult  women hood by indulging in acts which are demeaning to all the women
  10. All those beggars who insult the emotions of philanthropists by presenting a false sob story and taking alms from them.
  11. ——
  12. —–
  13. ——

The list is unending

If all these people are punished, our judiciary and legal system will have a tough time by putting them behind the bars

BUT the question is who will punish the insulters?

The law makers, the reformers, the judiciary themselves insult the legal system, rules and regulations.

So if there is no one to impart punishment what is the alternative?

Go on getting insulted and go on insulting others ????????????????

P.S  can you add more categories of people who insult others?

    It seems the only insult that is legally punishable is insult to religious sensitivities! All other insults are allowed. 😐

      Good to see that some of us are non-judgmental and not gender biased.
      When a woman who earns more than her husband, insults and disrespects him, she is saying – for centuries when men have earned more than their wives had the right to insult their wives.
      Men or women – no one has the right to disrespect.

    Yes, I somewhat see your point. I agree that most types of insults should be made punishable. However, most often what is perceived as verbally “insulting” is often subjective. Hence, I’m not sure how it can be possible or practical to create laws in order to make it punishable.
    And how about wives who insult husbands? I’m not sure about you, but I know many who do that, and even go beyond. Is that not inappropriate?
