BJP wants to create communal tension in UP, says BSP chief Mayawati 28.11.2014 DNA: Top News
Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Friday alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) wants to create communal tension in Uttar Pradesh and said that the ruling Samajwadi Party should not allow the saffron party to celebrate the birth anniversary of freedom fighter Raja Mahendra Pratap inside the Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) campus. "The Bharatiya Janata Party wants to create communal tension in entire Uttar Pradesh. It is a serious issue. The SP Government in Uttar Pradesh must take it seriously. They should not allow the BJP to do anything that affects the law and order situation in the state," she said. Meanwhile, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Tariq Anwar lashed out at the BJP on the issue. "The Bharatiya Janata Party's aim is to create tension in the city campus and use it for political gains," said Anwar. The BJP, however, said the Samajwadi Party Government in Uttar Pradesh is unnecessarily creating a controversy over the issue. "Raja Mahendra Pratap's contribution is ...

Schools ‘must actively promote British values’ – DfE 28.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
New guidance from government hardens language on teaching of social development and is likely to draw criticism from faith schools

Schools in England will be required by the government to actively promote fundamental British values to their pupils, both in lessons and in extracurricular activities, according to new documents published by the Department for Education.

The guidance significantly hardens the language used in setting out how schools teach what is known as spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development, replacing the previous language of “respect” for British values with the requirement to actively promote them.

Courts kept busy as Jordan works to crush support for Isis 27.11.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
From King Abdullah down, officials are blunt about strategy to target supporters of movement wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria

“We are with the Islamic State and you are with Obama and the infidels,” Ahmed Abu Ghalous a big, angry-looking man in blue prison overalls, shouts after being sentenced to five years in jail for “promoting the views of a terrorist group” on the internet. The outburst earns him a further 50 dinar (£45) fine for contempt of court.

It is a sunny morning in Amman and the three uniformed judges in Jordan’s state security court are briskly working their way through a pile of slim grey folders on the bench before them. Each details the charges against 25 or so defendants accused of supporting the fighters of the Islamic State (Isis), now rampaging across Syria and Iraq under their sinister black banners and sending nervous jitters across the Arab world.

An Egyptian court has sentenced 78 children to between two and five years in prison for taking part in demonstrations calling for the return of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, judicial sources said.

Men and women not equal, Turkish president tells women's rights meeting 25.11.2014 DNA: Urban Tales
Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told a meeting on women's rights on Monday that gender equality was contrary to nature and said feminists did not recognise the value of motherhood. Erdogan, whose conservative, Islamist ideology frequently raises hackles in more liberal segments of Turkish society, said women's "delicate" nature meant it was impossible to place them on an equal footing with men. "You can't get a woman to work in every job that a man does, like they did in communist regimes in the past," he told the meeting of Turkey's Women and Democracy Association. "You can't put a pickaxe and a shovel in their hand and get them to work. That's not the way." He said women should be treated equally in the eyes of the law, but their different role in society had to be recognised. Erdogan's critics in mostly Muslim but constitutionally secular Turkey have regularly accused him of puritanical intrusiveness into private life, from his advice to women on the number of children they should have to his views ...

British fear of Islamists and Saudi fears about atheists are two sides of the same coin | Brian Whitaker 24.11.2014 Guardian: Comment is Free
Young people want to know about jihadism – and it’s better that they inquire about it openly, in schools, than elsewhere “Extremism in whatever form it takes has no place in our society, especially not in our schools,” the London diocesan board for schools said last week , referring to a Church of England school where sixth-formers had set up an Islamic society without approval from teachers or governors. Making use of the school’s virtual learning centre, the Islamic society had reportedly made a YouTube video and held meetings addressed by radical preachers. In Saudi Arabia there are similar concerns about “extremist” ideas taking hold in the minds of the young. Newspaper articles agonise about this much as they do in Britain, though in Saudi Arabia the ideology they fear is ...

Kenya kills al Shabaab militants after bus ambush; bodies of 28 killed arrives in Nairobi 24.11.2014 DNA: Wide Angle
Kenyan security forces have pursued and killed more than 100 militants and destroyed their camp in Somalia after the ambush of a Nairobi-bound bus that killed 28 people, Deputy President William Ruto said on Sunday. Somalia's Islamist al Shabaab militants have claimed responsibility for the attack on Saturday, when gunmen ordered passengers on the bus to recite Koran verses and shot dead non-Muslims - 19 men and nine women - who could not. The group said the killing outside Mandera, a town in the far northeast near the Somali and Ethiopian borders, was in retaliation for raids on mosques in the southern port city of Mombasa. Kenyan police said on Saturday that security forces pursued the attackers as they fled to Somalia after the ambush. "Two successful operations were carried out against the perpetrators of these murderous executions across the border. Our retaliatory action left in its trail more than 100 fatalities," Ruto told a news conference in Nairobi. Ruto said a camp used by the attackers and ...
