    Banning derogatory comments altogether is unconstitutional. Derogatory comments with no solid proof need to be banned.

    Derogatory comments could be proved true comments only if the govt holds open press conference. There is no derogatory and criticism in a true democracy. Everything is rightful, welcome and dealt with due respect and solved as per the constitution.
