    Nebulousness or Compromise?

    What exactly does this mean? “Advisory Forum is to support the Centre in achieving its vision and mission anchored on the principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, in particular the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.”!!!!

    What exactly is their function? Freedom of thought? I do not know HOW anyone that can read my thought to the point of curtailing it!

    What does the United Nations General Assembly do? Why duplicate its function? Why another world body instead of wasting money having multitudes of sittings and meetings? Why not use the money to alleviate hunger, poverty, migration of people across dinky and rickety boats across the Mediterranean with resultant loss of hundreds of lives?

    These people are either not serious or have an unseen agenda! Watch out we are watching!
