Speaking at an event to mark the start of an international conference of jurists, former Croatian president Stjepan Mesic said the “Americans have chosen a President who we don’t know how he will act”. His views were echoed by Justice Vincent De Gaetano of the EU Court of Human Rights, who said his “assistant” had told him that the recent Brexit and Donald Trump’s victory were “predicted in a world where ignorance prevails and hatred fuels the world”.

The two were speaking at a press meet ahead of the 17th International Conference of Chief Justices of the World, scheduled to be held at Lucknow from November 12-15.

Former Sudanese President Abdel Rahman M Hassan Swar Elzahab said the conference, on the issue of International law and protection of children, would “have a great impact on world peace.”

The conference is being organised by City Montessori School, Lucknow.

Speaking at the event, the school’s founder Jagdish Gandhi said there was a need for a “new world parliament” to safeguard the 2.5 billion children and the generations yet to come because countries in the world were spending on improving the accuracy of nuclear weapons.

The conference is expected to be attended by over 360 delegates from 63 counties, including Prime Ministers, former presidents and chief justices of several countries.

    Ever heard these liberals talk about women being sold in slave bazaar by jihadis? Ever heard these liberals talk about little girls being r@ped by jihadis? Ever heard these liberals talk about how schools get burnt women forced to wear burqa not to out alone without a male from the family or for that matter triple talaq? Ever heard these liberals talk about hatred against non muslims being openly preached in madarsa?

        What is your opinion abt stone throwing children who injure soldiers who are doing national duty.Is it the job of children to throw stones my opinion their parents should restrain them from unlawful act.If they donot the security force should not only use pellets but also should not hesitate to use bullets.No one should have any objection to it.

          They will never say what Vikrant has commented.Their survival depends on falsehood/lies/distortion of true facts.They will never say that islam is a religion which propagates violenceandall terrorists all the world over are islamist jehadis.The question is how long they will go on befooling the worldandmore particularly the hindus who are the worst sufferers at the hands of muslims.These persons who donot say so are living in fools paradise which will get destro the day they become the targets of terrorists.
