Iran: Newspapers break hijab taboo in front page tributes to math genius Maryam Mirzakhani 17.7.2017 DNA: Money
The Iranian media in its tribute to late mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani on Sunday broke the country's strict rules on female dress to show Mirzakhani with her head uncovered. According to a report by the Guardian, tributes were led by Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani, who posted a recent picture of Mirzakhani on Instagram without a hijab.   Jul 15, 2017 at 10:11am PDT Mirzakhani, a Stanford University professor, died in hospital in California on Saturday fighting cancer. She won the Fields Medal in 2014 for her "outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces". At that time, Iranian newspapers digitally retouched Mirzakhani's photograph to put a scarf over her head while others published a sketch showing only her face. Iran's strict laws on female dress require all women to be covered in public. This week, the front page of Hamshahri, a state newspaper, particularly stood out, winning praise for portraying her as she had lived. "Maths genius yielded to ...

Saudi Arabian Education Ministry grants access for girls to play sport in school 12.7.2017 DNA: India
Saudi Arabia has said that it will grant girls in public schools access to physical education, a decision that comes after years of calls by women across the kingdom demanding greater rights and access to sports. The Education Ministry said yesterday it will introduce the physical education classes "gradually" and "in accordance with (Islamic) Shariah regulations." At least one Saudi activist took to Twitter questioning whether this implied that girls will be required to seek the permission of their male guardians, such as a father, before they can play sports. It was also unclear if the classes would be extracurricular or mandatory. The decision to allow girls to play sports in public schools is significant in Saudi Arabia because women taking part in exercise is still seen as a taboo. Some of the kingdom's ultraconservatives shun the concept of women's exercise as "immodest" and say it blurs gender lines. It was only four years ago that the kingdom formally approved sports for girls in private schools. ...

Shocking: Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal quits Essex County Club after alleged acid attack 12.7.2017 DNA: Money
Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal has left English county Essex after an alleged acid attack on him and his family.  The 28-year-old -- Bangladesh's highest international run scorer with more than 10,000 to his name in all forms of the game -- signed only last week for an eight game stint in the T20 Blast county competition. According to a report in Bangladesh's The Daily Star, the incident happened when Tamim was dining with his wife Ayesha Siddiqa, who wears a hijab, and their one-year-old son. The paper claims the trio were chased out of the restaurant and had acid thrown at them, but they managed to escape unhurt. Sunday's seven-wicket loss to Kent was the only match played by Tamim before the horrific incident happened and he decided to leave with his family. The club, though, released a statement saying that he left because of 'personal reasons'. "Essex County Cricket Club can confirm that overseas player Tamim Iqbal has left the club with immediate effect due to personal reasons," the ...

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. ...
