UK Government appoints first religious freedom envoy

 

The first Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion or Belief has been appointed by the UK Government, with Lord (Tariq) Ahmad of Wimbledon, a British Muslim peer, businessman and former minister filling the post.

According to the government, the role “will promote the UK’s firm stance on religious tolerance abroad, helping to tackle religious discrimination in countries where minority faith groups face persecution”.

and quote:

Lord Ahmad, who also serves in the role of Minister of State for the Commonwealth and the UN at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, said: “People from all faiths or none should be free to practise as they wish. This respect is key to global stability, and is in all our interests.”

 

and quote:

 

Theresa May, the Prime Minister, said: “Both here and abroad, individuals are being denied the basic right of being able to practise their faith free of fear.

“I look forward to supporting [Lord Ahmad] in this new role as he works with faith groups and governments across the world to raise understanding of religious persecution and what we can do to eliminate it.”

end quote (my bold)

 

Ex cult members,universally worldwide, look forward to change in regard to freedom of faith.Look forward to seeing religious persecution eliminated .Look forward to future situation where people of all faiths or none can be free to practice as they wish

A number of ex exclusive brethren might not have faith that Bruce Hales is man of God.As such, these ex members will naturally choose to not follow the belief that Bruce Hales is. Even when family members still might believe its true

These ex members will look forward to being free to follow their own conscience without fear of facing repercussion  . Like what cults,for now, are still too often world re-known for delivering . Will look forward to becoming free of harm caused

Bring it on  (and lets all get ready to rumble with all those dominant groups whom still continue to oppose real freedom)

We’ll all be intently watching Lord (Tariq) Ahmad of Wimbledon . Will all be watching to be sure to see freedom is implemented honestly

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
