Article 19 of the ICCPR states that “[e]veryone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference” and “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression. this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice”.

Every individual should have the right to be able to voice his thoughts and opinions in a free and fair manner, without having the terror of being thrown into jail for what he says. All over the world, free speech has been denied to several citizens because the government feels threatened by the power of the media as well as the masses instigated by the media. However, it must be noted that if free speech is allowing people to live a fair and harmonized lifestyle, then it should be allowed. The reason that there is censorship on it is that people tend to misuse their freedom to pass comments, and this leads to trouble on a large scale.

The speech should be free and fair when it is supposed to be. for example, one should be able to communicate thoughts freely without having to par a barrier. When speech helps in a positive light, it should not be blocked from usage. Thus, the situation in the Middle East could have been better had people not been denied speech and expression. .
The situation in the Middle East has worsened about giving people freedom of speech. Most people are not allowed to surf social networking websites from their homes as well as workplaces because the security is extremely tight, and the government does not want people to find out any inside information. .
