Turkey's President Erdogan orders closure of over 1000 schools linked to Gülen 23.7.2016 DNA: Top News
After declaring a three-month state of emergency in Turkey, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has in his first decree ordered the closure of more than 1,000 private schools and extended the period of detention without charge for criminal suspects. Erdogan said the state of emergency would enable the authorities to effectively root out supporters of last weekend's failed military coup in which at least 246 people were killed, reports the Guardian. The state of emergency, which was approved by the Parliament on Thursday, allows the government to pass laws without first having to win parliamentary support. Expulsion of the armed forces, police, judiciary and education system, particularly targeting the followers of a US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen, who is accused of masterminding the failed coup, has already been launched by the authorities. Reports suggest that the first decree signed by Erdogan authorises the closure of 1,043 private schools, 1,229 charities and foundations, 19 trade unions, 15 ...

Margaret Thatcher wanted to stop second wives from entering UK 21.7.2016 DNA: India
Britain's former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was against allowing second wives of men based in the UK to enter the country to join them, according to UK government documents released on Thursday. Muslim men mostly of Pakistani and Bangladeshi-origin tended to be in polygamous marriages, something Thatcher did not want her government to be seen to be condoning, according to Cabinet Office files between 1982 and 1986 released by the National Archives. "The country would be with us on this. We would be crazy to discriminate in favour of the coloured Commonwealth against the UK," Thatcher told then attorney general Sir Michael Havers. Havers was concerned about the legality of such a ban without a change in the law. "I am very conscious of the fact that this is a highly explosive subject and that there is a need for early amendment of the law. I must, however, advise in the strongest terms against taking any action against second wives until there is a change in the law. Such unlawful action by the ...

Muslim man removed from American Airlines flight as attendant felt uncomfortable 21.7.2016 DNA: Top News
In a case of alleged discrimination in the US, a 40-year-old Muslim man was removed from a plane after a flight attendant publicly announced his name, seat number and said she would be "watching" him. The matter came to light on Wednesday when the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) complained to transport authorities that Mohamed Ahmed Radwan was removed from the American Airlines Flight last December because of his "identifiably Arabic and Muslim name." According to federal law, airlines are prohibited from discriminating against passengers based on religion, ancestry and national origin, among other criteria. CAIR sent a letter to the Department of Transportation (DOT) on Thursday urging an investigation and also called for a "thorough examination" into prevailing practices of major airlines, The Charlotte Observer reported. In addition, CAIR said the DOT should develop policy guidelines on objective factors to be looked at while deciding to remove a passenger from a plane. Radwan, a chemical ...

Turkey widens post-coup purge, demands Washington hand over cleric 18.7.2016 DNA: India
Turkey purged its police on Monday after rounding up thousands of soldiers in the wake of a failed military coup, and said it could reconsider its friendship with the United States unless Washington hands over a cleric Ankara blames for the putsch. The sacking of thousands of police officers followed orders for the detention of thousands of judges and prosecutors in the aftermath of Friday night's coup, in which more than 200 people were killed when a faction of the armed forces tried to seize power. The swift response, including calls to reinstate the death penalty for plotters, drew concern from Western allies who said Ankara must uphold the rule of law in the country, a NATO member that is Washington's most powerful Muslim ally. Thousands of members of the armed forces, from foot soldiers to commanders, were rounded up on Sunday, some shown in photographs stripped to their underpants and handcuffed on the floors of police buses and a sports hall. Several thousand prosecutors and judges have also been ...

The Qandeel Baloch saga: A society dishonoured 18.7.2016 DNA: Recent Columns
When it comes to murdered social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch, there is no doubt that she was a polarising figure in Pakistan. Her Internet posts, often considered controversial in an overwhelmingly orthodox society, created quite a storm. But she did not deserve to be murdered for this rebellion or insistence on being true to herself. In a July 14 Facebook post, Baloch spoke about "girlpower" and a month later, on July 15, she was strangled to death by her brother, in what is undoubtedly a case of honour killing. In Pakistan, hundreds of women become victims of honour killing which is a pervasive part of a culture where family honour is irrevocably tied to the women. Any deviation, however minor, is considered to be damaging. Perpetrators are in most cases family members who are unhappy with the actions of the ‘errant’ woman. Most honour killings occur when the family disagrees to a woman's choice of husband or partner. Sometimes, both the husband and wife are murdered in cold blood. Although many ...
