What’s the difference between Sania and Sonia? 25.7.2014 DNA: Popular News
Sania Mirza married a Pakistani and therefore is Pakistan’s daughter-in-law, says Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Telangana leader K Lakshman.  But the same party refuses to accept Sonia Gandhi as an Indian even though she had married an Indian. Why? Lakshman had one more gem—Sania was born in Maharashtra, so she is not even a local. Can’t be called Telangana brand ambassador. Granted. How about Amitabh Bachchan who was born in Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh and entirely made his career in Mumbai, Maharashtra but was chosen to become brand ambassador of Gujarat? Why did the BJP over there not find any fault with Amitabh not being from Gujarat? When Mehbooba Mufti amended property laws in Kashmir and said Kashmiri women married to non-Kashmiris won’t have property rights in Kashmir, there was a huge hue and cry. BJP wanted a national debate. They said Mehbooba was depriving Kashmiri women the choice to marry anyone they liked. Babu Bajrangi, a convict in Gujarat riots, for decades ran an organisation that ...

Pune Speak Up: Old habits die hard, Shiv Sena continues ruff unabashed behaviour 25.7.2014 DNA: Top News
Shiv Sena is known for its hooligan behaviour. By force-feeding a supervisor of the IRTC canteen at Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi, Member of Parliament Rajan Vichare has only reiterated his party’s reputation. Even when the supervisor kept saying that he is fasting because of the ongoing holy month of Ramzan, Vichare did not refrain from doing what he did. dna asks readers if his behaviour is pardonable? Don’t make it an issue It is not right for a Lok Sabha MP into behave unruly and create ruckus. The IRCTC supervisor at the Maharashtra Sadan, was wearing his identity card, which bears his Muslim name. How can Vichare not see this ID card and deny that he was unaware that the supervisor was a Muslim. He should have hurt someone’s religious feelings. However, now when he has regretted his behaviour and has apologised, we should not make an issue of it and give it a religious or communal connotation. There is no need to demand his resignation, when he has apologized. It is a small incidence and lets not ...

Militant group Islamic State has ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations said on Thursday. The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls between the ages of 11 and 46, U.N. resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq Jacqueline Badcock told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Arbil."This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed," she said. "This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists," she added. No one was immediately available for comment from Islamic State which has led an offensive through northern and western Iraq. The Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), took over large swathes of the country last month and has begun imposing its extreme Salafist interpretation of ...

Omar Abdullah rues delay in removal of AFSPA, says 'goalpost shifts' time and again as different governments come to power 24.7.2014 DNA: Popular News
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Thursday rued the delay in the withdrawal of Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) from the state, saying the "goalpost" is shifted each time when the contentious issue is raised. Omar also sarcastically said "some people" will never find the time appropriate for withdrawal of AFSPA as they have a "liking" for these laws. "It is an ongoing discussion with the Centre. First, it was with the UPA and now the NDA government," he said, adding, "Some people will never find the time appropriate because they have so much liking and love for these laws." "Even if we make 100% of the guns here silent, they will still find excuses and say time is not appropriate," Omar told reporters here. The Chief Minister said he did not know what parameters the Centre wants for the appropriate time. "If they let us know the parameters to determine the appropriate time, then we will try to achieve those parameters," he said. "But whenever we tell them that the time is ...
