Defiant UP madrasas might face NSA case 17.8.2017 DNA: Popular News
Quite a few madrasas (Islamic schools) in Uttar Pradesh may face action under the stringent National Security Act (NSA) for partly defying the Yogi Adityanath government's order that the tricolour must be unfurled and the national anthem recited on their premises as part of Independence Day celebrations. The NSA was enacted in 1980 primarily to deal with the country's security, defence and foreign relations. It has provisions to detain citizens on presumption of possible tension alone without any recourse to challenge the detention order. Many of UP's 16,000 madrasas didn't take the order well that was to "inspire students and help them learn more about the contribution of freedom fighters". A few madrasas in Western UP's Bareilly and elsewhere in the state did flag hoisting but refused to recite the national anthem — Jana Gana Mana... — on the ground that "Islam does not allow anyone except Allah to be praised". A few Hindu organisations and locals lodged a complaint with Bareilly divisional ...

Nikah Halala: Muslim women pay lakhs to Islamic scholars for one-night stands to 'save their marriages' 16.8.2017 DNA: India
A blatant misuse of the Muslim personal law is currently taking place under the radar of public attention. According to an  India Today report , Islamic scholars are reportedly charging a hefty amount for one night stands with divorced Muslim women looking to resuscitate their marriage by a controversial practice called nikah halala.  As bizarre as it may sound, the practice of nikah halala requires the divorced woman to marry someone else, consummate the marriage and then get a divorce in order to again marry her first husband under the Muslim personal law.  For this, Islamic scholars are in high demand, and charge anything between Rs 20,000 - Rs 1,50,000 to participate in nikah halala. When the undercover team of the channel met Islamic scholars, they reportedly bragged about carrying out the practice. One scholar, who is married reportedly said that he doesn't need to tell his wife to participate in nikah halala.  According to people interviewed, the report said that many a time, even formal marriage ...

Hamid Ansari steers clear of controversies 16.8.2017 DNA: Top News
Skirting with another controversy was not what former vice-president Hamid Ansari had on his mind on the 70th anniversary of Independence Day when he decided to attend the launch of Urdu edition of a news portal. And, he stayed away from trouble. "I have been grilled for my comment, and I do not want to be in fresh trouble," said Ansari. "I don't know why was I labelled as someone (who creates trouble); I'm not." Ansari was speaking to journalist Vinod Dua during the launch of the Urdu edition of the news portal, The Wire. Ansari's steely resolve to not say anything critical of the government comes days after he spoke in the 25th convocation of the National Law School of India University (NLSIU) in his last speech as the vice-president on August 6. At the convocation, Ansari pointed towards increasing apprehensions about "insecurity among segments of our citizen body, particularly Dalits, Muslims and Christians", and an "illiberal form of nationalism that promotes intolerance and an arrogant ...

Independence Day 2017: UP's madrasas follow state diktat; videograph celebrations in school 15.8.2017 DNA: Money
Madrassas in the capital city today celebrated the 71st Independence Day by unfurling the tricolour and reciting national anthem, even as the Uttar Pradesh government's recent order of videography of the celebrations created "confusions" among the Islamic schools. Though many madrassas paid heed to the order, many other claimed that they never received any official word on the celebrations. Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangimahli, head of Darul Uloom Firangimahal, said, "The Independence Day was celebrated in the madrassas traditionally with unfurling of national flag, recital of national anthem and distribution of sweets among students." On being asked about the state directives on videography of the celebrations, the cleric said some of the Muslim religious schools have been doing it for their records, while some other madrassas chose to avoid the order. According to the government circular, flag hoisting and recitation of the national anthem should take place at 8 am on the Independence Day in all ...

Philippines: Battles between pro-Islamic State militants, govt-backed separatists kill 25 14.8.2017 DNA: India
Fighting between government-backed separatist rebels and pro-Islamic State militants have killed at least 25 people in the southern Philippines, the army said on Monday, as the military battles to restore order on the troubled island of Mindanao. Soldiers provided artillery support for the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), a Muslim rebel group with which the government has signed a peace agreement, to try to tackle Islamist extremists, spokesman Colonel Gerry Besana said. The MILF and the government have agreed to work together to thwart several militant groups in Mindanao that have pledged allegiance to Islamic State. The island of 22 million people and roughly the size of South Korea is under martial law at least until the end of the year, as President Rodrigo Duterte tries to extinguish a growing threat of radical Islam taking a hold and turning the southern Philippines into a magnet for foreign extremists. The MILF is opposed to radical groups and sees them as undermining its legitimate quest for ...

Will give away land to Hindus if Muslims win Babri case: Maulana Kalbe Sadiq 14.8.2017 DNA: Money
Maulana Kalbe Sadiq, prominent Shia leader and Vice-President of All India Muslim Personal Law Board, said on Sunday that Muslims will accept the Supreme Court verdict on Babri Masjid peacefully if it went against them and will give away the land even if it won the Babri case. The statement, he said, was in his personal capacity and not as the member of any body or sect. Sadiq made the statement while delivering a speech at the 'World Peace and Harmony Through Interfaith Dialogue' that was organised by Ahimsa Vishwa Bharti at the National Sports Club of India, Worli. His statement comes even as the Shia community has slammed Shia Wakf board's stance that they are willing to build a mosque in the Muslim locality where the Babri Masjid once stood. "I am saying this in a personal capacity. In the Babri Masjid case, if the Supreme Court decision goes against Muslims, we will accept it in silence, peacefully. There will be no protests.
