Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today accused Muslim bodies of "creating hindrances" in resolving the Ram Janambhumi-Babri Masjid dispute and said the "outer limit" to settle the issue is April 2018. Swamy made these comments a day after Muslim organisations appeared skeptical about the Supreme Court's suggestion for an out-of-court settlement of the Ayodhya dispute. They had said such attempts in the past have been unsuccessful. "All the Muslim parties had yesterday said on TV that this (out-of-court negotiation) is all waste of time...Only the SC should hear it...They create hindrances in the hearing...Somehow, they are trying to delay it," he said. He said the matter has been pending before the Apex Court for six-and-a-half years, but not a single hearing has been held. "Either we reach a solution through mediation under SC judges or there is day-to-day hearing. If they (the Muslim parties) try to avoid by adjournment, then the outer limit is April 2018." However, he did not elaborate what he ...

Over 10 lakh Muslims from across the country have called for the end of triple talaq.

The government had also cited the instances of changes in marriage laws in Iran, Egypt, Indonesia, Turkey, Tunisia, Morocco, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Demonetization: Amartya Sen and his friends stand 'humiliated' and 'exposed', says Jagdish Bhagwati 17.3.2017 DNA: Opinion
Globally acclaimed economist Jagdish Bhagwati today said demonetization will promote growth while Amartya Sen and other experts who denounced it stand "humiliated and exposed". "On the effects of demonetization on growth, I should say that I was the one economist who had argued (with my co-authors), from first principles, that demonetization would increase, not diminish, growth," he said. "And that is exactly what appears to have happened," he said further. "The Prime Minister's success in Uttar Pradesh has therefore meant that Amartya Sen and his friends who argued that demonetization would hurt growth, have been humiliated and exposed as much as the Congress," Bhagwati told PTI in an email interview. He is a professor of Economics, Law, and International Relations at the Columbia University. "After BJP's victory in Uttar Pradesh, indeed Prime Minister Narendra Modi is now in an even stronger position than when he was first elected resoundingly," Bhagwati said. He also said that three things ought to be ...
