Triple talaq to be tested on touchstone of Constitution, strong views on both sides: Supreme Court 29.6.2016 DNA: Money
A divorce through 'triple talaq' among the Muslim community is a "very important matter affecting a large section of people" which has to be tested on the "touchstone of constitutional framework", the Supreme Court said today while agreeing to examine the issue of personal law. The apex court said "we are not straightaway arriving at any conclusion" as there were "very strong views" on both sides. It said it will also see if there was any error in previous judgements which dealt with the issue and decide whether it can be referred to a larger or a five-judge constitution bench. "We are straightaway not jumping to any conclusion. It has to be seen if there is a need for any further consideration of law by the constitution bench," a bench comprising Chief Justice TS Thakur and Justice AM Khanwilker said while asking the parties to get ready for a debate on the scope of judicial review of judgements on 'triple talaq'. "Personal law has to be tested on the touchstone of constitutional framework," it said ...

BJP resorting to issues like Kairana to vitiate atmosphere in UP, says CM Akhilesh Yadav 20.6.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday stepped up his attack on BJP over the issue of 'migration' of Hindus from Kairana, saying it was raising such "baseless" matters to "vitiate" the atmosphere in the poll-bound state. Yadav's attack came even as senior BJP leader and Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu said "Kairana migration" will not be a main issue for the party in the Assembly polls in UP due next year and that it will fight on the development plank. "The BJP raises baseless issues like Kairana since they have nothing to show in terms of development during their two years in power. They know if they debated on development, the SP government would lead, hence they resort to raise issues like Kairana to vitiate the UP atmosphere," Yadav said while addressing a gathering in Lakhimpur Kheri. "The issue raised by BJP was found baseless on verification as some of the people there migrated 10 to 15 years back for employment or financial matter while others migrated on other issues and some ...

Can't have uniform civil code in a diverse country like India, says Asaduddin Owaisi 20.6.2016 DNA: Recent Columns
AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday said one cannot have a uniform civil code in a pluralistic and diverse country like India. "Would the Sangh Parivar be ready to let go of Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) tax rebates they are getting?" the Lok Sabha member from Hyderabad said, when asked if his party is in favour of a debate on uniform civil code. "There are 16 Directive Principles in our Constitution. One of them talks about total prohibition (of liquor). Why don't we talk about it and have total prohibition throughout India because it's also mentioned as Directive Principle," Owaisi told PTI here. He noted there is data which says many women are being harassed or beaten by their drunkard husbands, and that one of the major causes of road accidents is drunken driving. "So, why don't we have total prohibition in India?" he asked. Owaisi also noted that a section in Article 371 of the Constitution gives "special provisions" to Nagas and Mizos. "Will you be taking that off?" he asked. "These are the ...

Terrorism in the name of Islam is 'haram': One lakh Bangladeshi clerics say in fatwa 19.6.2016 DNA: Mumbai
Over 100,000 Islamic scholars in Bangladesh have issued a fatwa, declaring militancy and terrorism in the name of Islam as "haram" while voicing their concern over a wave of brutal slayings of Hindus and secular writers by Islamists in the Muslim-majority country. Maulana Farid Uddin Masud, the chairman of Islamic scholars' organisation Bangladesh Jamiyatul Ulama, pronounced the fatwa or a ruling on a point of Islamic law at a press conference here. Maulana Masud, the imam of Bangladesh's Sholakia Eidgah, the largest Eid prayer congregation, said "some" of the militants and terrorists were "wrong" to identify themselves as "jihadists". "Islam is the religion of peace...Islam doesn't support terrorism," Maulana Masud said on Saturday. Referring to the Quran and Hadith, he said the suicide attackers will be cast in hell. "Even taking part in funeral prayers of terrorists, militants, covert killers is haram. And those killed for their stance against militancy will be martyrs," he added. According to Maulana ...

AMU not minority institution, must follow reservation policy: RSS 18.6.2016 DNA: Recent Columns
 Asserting that Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is not a minority institution, RSS on Saturday said the varsity is committing a "big crime" by not implementing the policy of reservation for SCs, STs and OBCs. RSS joint general secretary Krishna Gopal said the NDA government's stand on the issue of AMU's minority status was in sync with that of previous governments, barring the UPA dispensation, and an order by the apex court in 1968. The NDA government had told the Supreme Court in April that it would withdraw the appeal filed by the erstwhile UPA government challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict holding AMU as non-minority institution. "The Centre took the stand which was the position of Maulana Azad, (HRD Minister) M C Chagla, (Saiyid) Nurul Hasan. At that time, all the (then) three Prime Ministers Jawharlal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri and Indira Gandhi were also there. Our stand is similar to the decision of the Supreme Court. We did not change the decision, it was done in 2005 by the UPA. "So, ...

Egypt: Ex-President Mohamed Morsi sentenced to 40 years in jail 18.6.2016 DNA: Opinion
Egypt's toppled Islamist President Mohamed Morsi was on Saturday sentenced to life imprisonment by a court for passing state secrets to Qatar. The court also upheld death sentences given to six Muslim Brotherhood members in the same case and awarded life imprisonment (25 years in prison) to two others. Morsi was given an additional 15 years in prison in the same case, increasing his jail term to 40 years. Last month, the court ordered that the case documents of the six defendants, excluding Morsi, be referred to the Grand Mufti, who according to the Egyptian law must review all death sentences. However, his decision is not binding. The six defendants include Ahmed Abdo Ali Afifi, a documentary film producer (who is in jail), Asmaa el-Khateeb reporter in Rassd news network (RNN) (sentenced in absentia), Alaa Omar Mohammed, a Jordanian news producer in Al-Jazeera (sentenced in absentia), and the news editor Ibrahim Mohammed Hilal in Al-Jazeera (sentenced in absentia). The verdict is not final and can be ...
