Britain to tighten law to act on terrorism funding by charities 22.10.2014 DNA: Top News
British Prime Minister David Cameron will announce plans on Wednesday to tighten the law to help stop charities being used as a front to raise funds for terrorist groups. Several individuals convicted of terrorism offences in Britain had raised funds in public, purportedly for charitable purposes, the majority of which the charities never received, the government said. Three British Islamists jailed last year for planning mass suicide attacks had tried to fund their plot by posing as street collectors for the Muslim Aid charity organisation, raising 12,000 pounds ($19,360). The planned new powers include banning those who have criminal convictions, such as for terrorism offences or money laundering, from being a charity trustee. The Charities Commission, a regulatory body which earlier this year asked the government for more funding and powers to tackle abuse in the sector, will be given the authority to disqualify trustees it considers unfit and to shut down a charity where there has been ...

Security beefed up in Kashmir ahead of Indian PM Narendra Modi's visit 22.10.2014 DNA: Top News
Security has been beefed up here and across the Valley as separatists called for a general strike tomorrow against the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Police and paramilitary forces have been deployed in strength and are conducting random checking of vehicles at dozens of places in the city and elsewhere, a senior police officer said. Special checking points have been set up at various places in the city including entry and exit points as a precautionary measure to maintain law and order.  The move was aimed at foiling any attempt by militants to strike in the city ahead or during the Prime Minister's visit, he said. The Prime Minister yesterday said that he would spend Diwali, the festival of lights, in flood-hit Srinagar. "Will be in Srinagar on Diwali, 23d October & will spend the day with our sisters & brothers affected by the unfortunate floods," Modi tweeted yesterday. This will be his fourth visit to Jammu and Kashmir since taking charge as Prime Minister in May. While the announcement of ...

In Afghanistan's north, Taliban gains ground and courts local support 22.10.2014 DNA: Popular News
Sardar, a 23-year-old working in his brother's barber shop in the northern Afghan province of Kunduz, said local officials had asked for bribes to resolve a long-running family dispute over land. When the backhanders failed to have their desired effect, he turned to the Taliban, the austere Islamist movement that has been fighting foreign forces since it was ousted from power 13 years ago. "They came to our home in Chahar Darah and took two days to solve the problem," he said. The case of Sardar and others like him may prove sobering reading for the United States, NATO and Afghan governments who spent billions of dollars, and thousands of lives, to overcome the Taliban insurgency and turn a war-torn nation into a peaceful democracy before foreign combat troops leave at the end of the year. According to local officials, the Taliban controls virtually all of two out of seven districts in Kunduz - Chahar Darah and Dasht-i-Archi. It is gaining influence elsewhere, and residents say it has been able to ...

ISIS literature, clips of clerics recovered from Kurla techie 20.10.2014 DNA: Urban Tales
With the arrest of techie Anees Ansari, who was picked up by the Maharashtra ATS on Saturday after he was allegedly found chatting on social media about blowing up an American school in Mumbai, the issue of online indoctrination is once again staring Mumbai police in the face. Recently, the agency had claimed that four youths from Kalyan were radicalised through jihadi chat groups on the Internet, after which they had flown to Iraq to support Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). What was the techie caught doing? According to the ATS sources, Ansari had a regular account on Facebook, but had created another account under another name recently. "When the Syria issue happened, after which the United States forces started taking action against the militants, Ansari had started viewing videos regarding the same on the Internet.
