The moral of the gay wedding cake row: the law can’t create tolerance 20.5.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
This tale of patisserie and prejudice is a grim comment on Britain’s long and incompetent custodianship of Northern Ireland A Christian walks into a Muslim sign writer’s shop and orders a placard. He says it should carry a cartoon of the prophet and the slogan Muslims Go Home. The sign writer is deeply offended and says he cannot execute the order. The customer is outraged at the discrimination, is supported by the equality commission, sues, and the sign writer is fined £500 plus costs. I think most people would find such a saga absurd. Why did the Christian not acknowledge a difference of opinion and go elsewhere for his placard? Yet that is the gist of the case this week against Mr and Mrs McArthur, owners of Ashers Baking Company in Belfast. They could not bring themselves to ice a cake with the slogan, Support Gay Marriage, which they strongly oppose and which is still illegal in Northern Ireland. It had been ordered by a gay rights activist, Gareth Lee, in honour of Northern Ireland’s first gay ...

Term 'Indianism' used by me was 'torn' out of context: HC judge 20.5.2015 DNA: Recent Columns
A year after he observed that any person claiming to be a Hindu or Muslim nationalist was working against "Indianism" triggering a row, a High Court judge in Srinagar has said that the term used by him was taken out of context by some persons. Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar said while disposing off a petition last week that "Fascist bent of mind, otherwise, called fascism, is abhorrent to and antithesis of 'idea of India', otherwise called 'Indianism' (Hindustaniat)." His remarks came as further elucidation to an order passed by the Judge in October 2013. "In our constitutional philosophy, there is only one 'ism' that is Indianism. All other isms are sworn enemies of Indianism. Any person claiming to be Hindu nationalist, Muslim nationalist, Sikh nationalist, Buddhist nationalist or Christian nationalist is not only working against Indianism but against the very thought of India," Justice Attar had said in the landmark judgement two years ago. The judgement had drawn sharp criticism from religious and ...

Why is Jerusalem important? You asked Google – here’s the answer 20.5.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Every day, millions of people ask Google some of life’s most difficult questions, big and small. In this series, our writers answer some of the most common queries

For Jews, Jerusalem is not just a significant physical place in both past and present Jewish history, but is equally important as a religious concept that transcends time. The area itself had been traversed by the first Jew, Abraham (c1800 BCE), during his wanderings throughout “the Promised Land”. According to tradition, the place where Abraham nearly sacrificed his son Isaac but was commanded by God not to do so, was the spot on which Jerusalem was later built.

Pakistan clerics declare suicide attacks 'un-Islamic' 18.5.2015 DNA: Top News
At least 200 religious scholars in Pakistan have issued a fatwa terming suicide attacks as "un-Islamic" and said the Islamic governments are bound to crush rebel groups like the Taliban, ISIS and al-Qaeda. "Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, Al-Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram, Al-Shabab and other such so-called Jihadi outfit's philosophy is misleading. Their functioning is un-Islamic and thinking based on poor knowledge of Islam," said the fatwa issued by clerics belonging to different Islamic sects after a conference held here yesterday. "The Jihad methodology of these outfits (are) against Islamic conditions for Jihad and that the elements involved in sectarian killings are guilty of 'fasad' (violence) as Islam does not allow any killing in the name of sect and the Islamic governments are bound to crush such rebels," it said. The fatwa also declared those opposing anti-polio drive and killing the women health workers as the "worst criminals". The Taliban are opposed to anti-polio drive and have killed scores of polio ...
