Ronald Lindsay, the president and CEO of the Center for Inquiry, said in her statement that regarding Blasphemy Day.

The very first Blasphemy Day counted art exhibit in Washington D.C. and a free speech festival in Los Angeles. The day sometimes gets very much offended while the Toronto Co-ordinator has confirmed that there are no intentions to hurt the sentiments of people, or any intention to hurt the feelings or sentiments through our debate or dialogue to which people gets offended, and there should not be any human right to be offended through this.
The day is not welcomed everywhere and there are certain rules and punishments for All this, just like Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia is punishable by death for blasphemy.
