Synonyms: suggestion, inference, insinuation, innuendo, hint, intimation, imputation, indication.
Example: On September 20, the court upheld a ban on a book without so much as considering the implications that such sanctions have on free speech. The order is the latest example in a litany of cases, going back to the court’s inception, which calls into question the commonly held notion of our highest judiciary serving as a custodian of fundamental rights.

3.Notion (noun)
Meaning: a conception of or belief about something.
Synonyms: idea, belief, concept, conception, conviction, opinion, view, thought, impression, image.
Example: The order is the latest example in a litany of cases, going back to the court’s inception, which calls into question the commonly held notion of our highest judiciary serving as a custodian of fundamental rights.

7.Benevolent (adjective)
Meaning: well meaning and kindly.
Synonyms: kind, kindly, kind-hearted, warm-hearted, tender-hearted, big-hearted, good-natured, good, gracious, tolerant, benign, compassionate, caring, sympathetic, considerate.

New Delhi not only provided basic necessities such as food and shelter but also provided refugees the necessary logistics to continue their pro-democratic movement from India.

To paraphrase  our President, we can’t be vigilant enough.
