    In response to your advert on your FB page ” Delve into the mind of a Qatari; Working hard to make Qatar a better place :)” 

    Why on earth would anybody want to ‘delve’ into the mind of a Qatari? It is just as nonsensical way as saying ‘Delve into the mind of a Mongolian’. I do find the sentence presumptuous and egocentric. I like reading your articles but please give me some credit.

    Hey there, that’s what the my profile says. Please do remember that English isn’t a Qatari’s first language, so perhaps it’s not the right choice of words.

    My intention is to say that the blog is the opportunity for people to see what one Qatari is thinking (since I blog about my thoughts). 
    No need to be sensitive and throw around words like egocentric….

Freedom of Expression

    Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the Qatari Government is a signatory of states: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any medias and regardless of any frontiers.

    The Emiri Decision Number 86 of the year 2007 on the establishment of the Doha Free Information Centre marked yet another step towards establishing a State of rights and freedom of speech. The decision stipulated that the Centre be a non-profit organization, headquartered in Doha City, and have the authority to establish other affiliated centres inside and outside Qatar. It is worth mentioning that His Highness the Emir issued a decision in 1998 annulling the ministry of information, giving birth to a new era of freedom of speech where censorship was removed from local media.
