Triple talaq to be opposed by govt in SC citing women's rights 18.9.2016 DNA: Mumbai
The Centre will be opposing in the Supreme Court the triple talaq practice on the grounds of women's rights, terming it as "inalienable" and asserting that the issue should not be seen from the prism of uniform civil code, a highly placed government functionary said on Sunday. The Law Ministry will file a consolidated reply on the issue in the apex court by the end of this month. The issue is being deliberated upon at inter-ministerial level which includes ministries of Home, Finance and Women and Child Development apart from the Law ministry. "We shouldn't approach it from (the prism of) uniform civil code. We need to talk in terms of rights of women. Our reply is going to be only on rights. A woman's rights are inalienable and according to the Constitution she has to have the same rights as men. Every court decision has slowly been taking us to these uniform rights. The practice of triple talaq doesn't exist even in Pakistan or Bangladesh. Only we have it," the senior functionary said. Home Minister ...

Islam can co-exist with secularism: Francois Hollande 9.9.2016 DNA: Popular News
President Francois Hollande said on Thursday that Islam could co-exist with secularism, warning in a key speech seen as preparing the ground for a re-election bid that the anti-terror fight should not undermine French values. The deeply unpopular Hollande has yet to announce whether he will run for a second term next year, but is widely expected to be a candidate. In a speech on terrorism and democracy in Paris he defended the country's Muslim minority following a vitriolic debate on the banning of the Islamic burkini swimsuit. "Nothing in the idea of secularism opposes the practice of Islam in France, provided it respects the law," Hollande said. Secularism was not a "state religion" to be used against other religions, he said, denouncing the "stigmatisation of Muslims." Mayors in around 30 French towns this summer cited the country's century-old secular laws in banning head-to-toe swimwear on their beaches, unleashing a furore. Several of the towns later revoked the bans after France's highest ...

Top Saudi cleric says Iran leaders not Muslims after Sunni kingdom criticised over running the haj 8.9.2016 DNA: Money
Saudi Arabia's top religious authority said Iran's leaders were not Muslims, drawing a rebuke from Tehran in an unusually harsh exchange between the regional rivals over the running of the annual haj pilgrimage. The war of words on the eve of the mass pilgrimage will deepen a long-running rift between the Sunni kingdom and the Shi'ite revolutionary power. They back opposing sides in Syria's civil war and a list of other conflicts across the Middle East. Tensions between them have been rising since Saudi Arabia cut ties with Iran in January following the storming of its embassy in Tehran, itself a response to the Saudi execution of a dissident Shi'ite cleric. Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a message published on Monday, criticised Saudi Arabia over how it runs the haj after a crush last year killed hundreds of pilgrims. He said Saudi authorities had "murdered" some of them, describing Saudi rulers as godless and irreligious. Responding to a question by Saudi newspaper Makkah, Saudi ...
