After this tasks were given to communities to check for those words in articles in their language.
After this, a clear explanation was provided why we should not use weasel words, euphemisms, idioms, plural pronouns and avoid contentious labels terrorist, fundamentalist, extremist, myth and etc.
After the break there discussion lead to why Wikipedia should not take sides on political, economical or geographical conflicts. After explaining all these a activity conducted to understand what words are neutral and what are not. During the session due to language barrier participants could not understand few things. That is why participants itself came forward from each community and explained things in their native language.
