Shehla Rashid claims her tweet was sarcastic after Gadkari threatens to take legal action over PM assassination claim 10.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai
In a massive u-turn, student leader Shehla Rashid has claimed that she was being sarcastic about Nitin Gadkari plotting to kill PM Narendra Modi after Union Minister threatened to sue her.  A plot to assassinate PM Narendra Modi was unearthed by Pune Police recently.  The police in Pune on Thursday told a court that they had seized a "letter" from the Delhi residence of one of the five people arrested on Wednesday for having alleged "links" with the banned CPI (Maoist). The purported letter allegedly mentioned of a plan to "assassinate" Prime Minister Narendra Modi in "another Rajiv Gandhi-type incident", the police told the court.  Many of the opposition parties have doubted the veracity of Pune Police's claims. In the same vain, Shehla Rashid floated a conspiracy theory on Saturday evening.  She tweeted: Looks like RSS/Gadkari is planning to assassinate Modi, and then blame it upon Muslims/Communists and then lynch Muslims #RajivGandhiStyle — Shehla Rashid (@Shehla_Rashid) June 9, 2018 Shehla Rashid ...

Denmark bans burqa and niqab, 'offenders' to be fined 2.6.2018 DNA: Money
 Denmark has became the latest European country to ban the Islamic full-face veil in public spaces in a move slammed by human rights campaigners as "a violation of women's rights". "Anyone who wears a garment that hides the face in public will be punished with a fine," says the law, which was passed by 75 votes to 30 in the Danish parliament. Presented by the centre-right government, the legislation was also backed by the Social Democrats and the far-right Danish People's Party. The new rule will take effect on August 1. Wearing a burqa, which covers a person's entire face, or the niqab, which only shows the eyes, in public will lead to a fine of 1,000 kroner (USD 156, 134 euros). The ban also targets other accessories that hide the face such as balaclavas and false beards. Repeated violations will be fined up to 10,000 kroner. It is not known how many women wear the niqab and burqa in Denmark. "I don't think there are many who wear the burqa here in Denmark. But if you do, you should be punished with a ...

Meet Tabassum Hasan, UP's only Muslim lawmaker in Lok Sabha since 2014, who crushed BJP in Kairana 31.5.2018 DNA: Popular News
Tabassum Hasan is no stranger to Uttar Pradesh politics. She is wife of late Samajwadi Party leader Munawwar Hasan, who was an MP from UP during 1996 to 1998.  Tabassum Hasan, a former BSP MP who later joined the SP, fought the prestigious Kairana Lok Sabha bypolls on RLD ticket. The face of united Opposition, who crushed the BJP in communally-sensitive Kairana Lok Sabha bypolls today, is Uttar Pradeh’s only Muslim lawmaker since 2014. Though BJP’s Mriganka Singh, the daughter of late MP Hukum Singh, was banking on sympathy wave, on May 31st, the verdict showed that Kairana's daughter-in-law had defeated ‘Kairana's daughter’. Hasan did her schooling from UP’s Saharanpur and studied till class X. She married late Munawwar Hasan in 1986 and has two children. One of the key debating points in Kairana bypolls was the exodus Hindus from the area. Both Mriganka and Tabassum had divergent views on the exodus of Hindu families from Kairana, a claim made by Mriganka Singh's father which became a major issue in ...

People are scared of committing crimes; criminals are now selling vegetables: Yogi Adityanath 25.5.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath on Thursday took a dig at the Opposition’s anti-development agenda, and claimed that ever since he assumed the top office in the state, criminals have given up illegal activities and have started selling vegetables on handcarts. As per a Times of India report, Adityanath alleged that the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party that were in power earlier had ‘destroyed the law and order’ situation in the state. In a bid to connect with the youth, the CM said that his government will create more employment opportunities for them. “Our government is going to recruit 1.62 lakh police constables and 1.37 lakh teachers. Besides, the honorarium given to contractual teachers and anaganwadi workers will be increased,” he said.  Recently, Adityanath hit out at predecessor Akhilesh Yadav, saying that his hands were stained with the blood of victims of the Muzaffarnagar riots.

Hafiz Saeed's MML to file contempt case against Pak EC for 'delaying tactics' 21.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
The Milli Muslim League (MML), the political face of Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed's JuD, today accused Pakistan's election commission of using delaying tactics to register the group as a political party and committing contempt of court. Saeed has already started campaigning for the MML with an eye on the general elections in Pakistan expected to be held on July 27. The US last month designated the MML as a foreign terrorist organisation, saying the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) members make up MML's leadership and the so-called party openly displays Saeed's likeness in its election banners and literature. The MML has not been yet registered by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). "We are going to file a contempt of court petition in the Islamabad High Court against the ECP for using delaying tactics regarding enlisting of MML as a political party as per law, MML President Saifullah Khalid said in a statement today. Khalid said the ECP's "tactics" are in clear violation of the high court ...

The Islamic holy month of Ramadan or Ramzan will begin on Thursday in India after the moon was sighted in New Delhi and Lucknow. The start date is set by both lunar calculations and physical sightings which determine when the last day of one lunar month ends and a new one begins. Moon sighted in Lucknow and Delhi #Ramzan mubarak A month of piety and ibadat pic.twitter.com/pXCtrbatvY — Rana Safvi رعنا राना (@iamrana) May 16, 2018 Traditionally, many Muslim-majority countries have followed the dates set by Saudi religious authorities, but in recent years many have used their own astronomical calculations. Ramadan is a holy month for the world's nearly 1.5 billion Muslims, many of whom practise the ritual of dawn-to-dusk fasting and prayers. The Ramadan fast, in which even water is prohibited, falls on especially long summer days this year for Muslims in the Northern Hemisphere.   Fasting is intended to bring the faithful closer to God and remind them of those less fortunate. It is also a chance to kick ...
