Freedom of Thought

Freedom of Thought is the freedom of a person to hold or consider a fact, viewpoint or thought. It is different from Freedom of Speech or Freedom of Expression. Almost all democratic constitutions protect this freedom. Everyone has the right to thought, conscience or religion. They also have the right to change their religion or belief. They have the right to teach, practice, worship and observe their religion. There are no limitations on Freedom of Thought and they are protected unconditionally.
