The world assembly of civil society organisations, CIVICUS, got underway in Glasgow yesterday. However no Islamic non-government organisations are attending, as reported by IPS. This “invisible dividing line” has been picked up by attendees from a number of Muslim countries.

“The Islamic groups are also civil society, though the groups are not registered, and they are influential groups, they can get a lot of other groups to follow them.”
