Welcome to this information platform and dialogue about human rights, more specifically the right to freedom of religion. The focus is on the belief of some religious groups, generally referred to as “cultist groups,” that the right to freedom of religion supersedes all other basic human rights. As a result this belief empowers such groups to disregard the rights of their followers. While functioning undisturbed under the protection of the right to freedom of religion they seem to believe that this right does not require any accountability by those who practice it. In the interest of the victims of such groups, their families and the general public but more so to do justice to the true intension of this right it is indispensable for this issue to be dialogued with the aim of establishing some responsibility and true application of this right in all its different facets.
