Hyderabad: Maheshwaram Wakf land under threat 29.10.2019
Hyderabad: The Wakf Board"s lack of attention has led a prime property in Maheshwaram village running the risk of getting sold. The board woke up only when a person tried to transfer the property in Maheshwaram that had been endowed in favour of the Muslim Maternity Hospital managed by the Jamaat-e-Islami. Though the value of the property is approximately Rs 2,000 crore, it has been sold for just Rs 50 crore. However, the board is now trying to do its best in protecting the land. According to records of the Wakf Board, a land spread over survey numbers 231, 242, 252, 258 to 269, 280, 281, 450, 451, 457, 458, 459, 469, 486, 487 and 518 of Maheshwaram village and mandal in Ranga Reddy district, measuring 428 acres, was endowed in 1970 by Syed Jamaluddin in favour of Muslim Maternity Hospital run by Islamic Social Services Society (ISSS), a wing of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind.

UN launches new Zimbabwe appeal as millions face food crisis 7.8.2019
Harare: The UN food agency, on Tuesday, launched a $331-million appeal for aid donations to feed millions of people in crisis-hit Zimbabwe, which is reeling from a drought and the high cost of food. Around five million people, or a third of the 16 million Zimbabweans, are in need of aid and at least half of them are on the cusp of "starvation", according to the World Food Programme (WFP). Speaking at the launch of the appeal, WFP executive director David Beasley said 2.5 million Zimbabweans were "in crisis emergency mode... marching towards starvation". He added that by early next year 5.5 million in all, will be in a similar position. A former regional breadbasket, Zimbabwe's economy has been on a downturn for over a decade with perennial food shortages, a foreign currency crunch, scarcity of basic commodities and high unemployment. The government blames the food shortages on the effects of climate change while critics say the shortages are a result of a slump in agricultural ...

On the contrary: Full Moon Half Potty among the troglodytes 28.7.2019
Pragya Thakur, the BJP MP from Bhopal is a woman on a mission; while her daily regimen includes the consumption of cow urine for medical purposes, she has made it crystal clear that cleaning toilets is not on her to-do list. "I have not been elected to clean drains or your toilets. I will honestly do the work for which I have been elected." Had she been an Eminem fan, she may have rapped, "Yo, read my lips, I don"t have time for this shit." This makes sense: given the generous salary and perks enjoyed by our MP"s one would hope Ms Thakur and her ilk would focus on big-button issues like the Union Carbide clean up, instead of mucking around with a broom and Harpic like Hema Malini. Consult Pragya to get your priorities right, Hemaji, and forget about photo-ops.  Unfortunately the top brass were not on the same enlightened wavelength and Pragya was summoned to party HQ where she got a dressing down on the subject of Swach Bharat from her boss, J.P Nadda. Her ...

Inaugurating the birth centenary celebrations of Gowriamma here, he said that Gowriamma"s life is a link between Kerala"s modern history and the early communist movement.  "These kinds of personalities are very rare in history. Her life is a symbol of extreme courage, sacrifice and commitment.  She is a link to the independence movement and contemporary politics," Mr Vijayan said.

She played a dominant role in the state cabinet for a long period and her commitment to the people was evident during her rule.
