Abstract

This note criticises the growing use of the term, 'defamation of religions' in human rights contexts on account of its quasi-legal character, its failure to identify the relevant positive state obligations under human rights instruments, and its tendency to eliminate disagreement about religious matters. Instead, it is suggested that the correct starting point for the engagement of human rights with religion is by way of freedom of religion or belief.
