===en=== After the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris in January 2015, almost nothing has been more controversial and spurred more conversations all around the world than freedom of expression. Does anyone have the right to say whatever they want, regardless of the effect that it might have on others? Must there be a certain level of respect for others’ beliefs and opinions that would render someone unable to truly express their opinion? These are the core issues being addressed at #DD14 on the motion, “Freedom of Expression has no Limits.” This explosive episode of Munathara features Fatma Naoot, an Egyptian writer currently on trial for denigrating Islamic traditions paired with Musabaqat Munathara winner Ghada Thimech from Tunisia arguing that freedom of speech and expression should have no limits. On the opposite side, Munathara welcomed Sheikha Mohammad Al Fizazi, a conservative Moroccan cleric, once imprisoned for inspiring terrorism but pardoned by the Moroccan government for any wrong doing, alongside Munathara’s other youth winner, Wala Al Kuhlani from Yemen.
