Iraq: Suicide bomber kills 31, wounds 35 in marketplace 9.6.2017 DNA: Money
A woman suicide bomber killed at least 31 people and wounded 35 in a crowded market in the town of Musayab, 80 km south of Baghdad, on Friday, security sources said. Islamic State claimed the attack, as well as one at the main bus station in the Shi'ite holy city of Kerbala, just west of Musayab, which killed three people and wounded 15. A security officer said the bomber in Musayab was a woman and had hidden the bomb under her full-body veil. Islamic State's statements identified both bombers as men. The hardline Sunni Muslim insurgents declared a self-styled "caliphate" over parts of Syria and Iraq three years ago but are now on the brink of losing Mosul, their de-facto capital in Iraq, to a U.S.-backed Iraqi offensive launched in October. They are also on the back foot in Syria, retreating in the face of a U.S.-backed, Kurdish-led military coalition attacking Raqqa, Islamic State's urban redoubt ...

Covering face causes Vitamin D deficiency, says UK Independence Party defending burqua ban 26.5.2017 DNA: Money
The far-right UK Independence Party (UKIP) has pledged in its general election manifesto to ban the burqas or the full face veils in public places, citing among others a bizarre reason that they "prevent intake of essential vitamin D from sunlight". "Clothing that hides identity, puts up barriers to communication, limits employment opportunities, hides evidence of domestic abuse, and prevents intake of essential vitamin D from sunlight, is not liberating," the UKIP election manifesto says. The Paul Nuttall-led UKIP broke ranks with the other major parties yesterday by resuming national campaigning with the launch of its manifesto just days after the Manchester concert bombing that claimed 22 lives. The UKIP pledged that it would introduce a ban on the wearing of the "dehumanising" burqa and full face coverings in public places, The Telegraph reported. "Face coverings such as these are barriers to integration. We will not accept these de-humanising symbols of segregation and oppression, nor the security ...

Melania, Ivanka do what Trump had criticised Michelle for 21.5.2017 Rediff: News
United States First Lady Melania Trump decided not to wear a headscarf while accompanying her husband President Donald Trump on his first state visit to Saudi Arabia.
Two years after Donald Trump criticised Michelle Obama for not covering her head in Saudi Arabia, Melania Trump does just the same 20.5.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Accompanying her husband on his first international trip, US first lady Melania Trump today stepped off of Air Force One conservatively dressed in long sleeves and pants to conform to the strict dress code that Saudi Arabia enforces for its female citizens. But one thing was missing from her black and gold-belted ensemble: a head scarf. Instead, Trump's below-the-shoulder brown hair blew freely in the breeze at King Khalid International Airport in the capital city of Riyadh. Saudi Arabia is the first stop on a four-nation, five- stop tour that will also take Trump to Israel, Italy and Belgium before President Donald Trump returns to the White House at the end of next week. The first lady is joining the president for the entire trip. Melania Trump looks beautiful wearing pants and no hijab. President Trump shakes hands.

United States: Teacher rips hijab off 8-year-old girl's head for 'misbehaving', fired 10.5.2017 DNA: Opinion
A teacher at a US school has been fired after he allegedly ripped the hijab off an 8-year-old girl's head for "misbehaving" in class. Oghenetega Edah, 31, demanded that the girl at the Bennington School, Bronx, take off her religious scarf, police said. The girl was misbehaving in class and sitting in the teacher's chair without his permission. So the teacher tapped her on her arm to get her to move, The New York Post reported. When she did not comply, Edah, a substitute, threatened to take the scarf. "I'm taking it off," he said as he pulled the hijab off her head, causing an injury to her right eye, according to police. Doctors at Jacobi Hospital determined that the girl's cornea was not damaged. "This alleged behaviour is completely unacceptable," Michael Aciman, a Department of Education spokesman, said in a statement. "This individual was removed from the school immediately and his employment has been terminated," he said. Edah became a per diem substitute teacher in January 2017, the report said. ...

Burqa-clad women celebrate Pakistan Day despite warnings 24.3.2017 DNA: Top News
Defying the warnings of General Bipin Rawat, scores of burqa-clad women unfurled the Pakistani flag and sang Pakistan's national anthem to celebrate Pakistan Day in the militancy-plagued Kashmir valley. Organised by the radical women separatist group `Dukhtaran-e-Milat' (DeM), the participants sang jihadi anthems and called for the merger of Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan. The burqa-clad women were seen waiving the Pakistani flag and singing the national anthem of the neighbouring country on stage. A few children dressed in green and white (representing Pakistan's flag) were also up on the stage. Later, a group of young women took over the podium and sang Jihadi songs eulogising militants and disparaging the security forces operating in Kashmir. The venue was kept confidential to prevent police raids. However, the event seemed to have been organised at a huge enclosure, accommodating a large number of women activists. The area was decorated with the banners demanding freedom and merger of Kashmir with ...
