Hunt for Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi: US-led coalition unsure if ISIS caliph alive or dead 23.6.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The U.S.-led coalition battling Islamic State said on Friday it had no concrete evidence on whether the militant group's leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was dead or alive but played down any significance he might have on the battlefields of Iraq and Syria. "We certainly know that if he is still alive, we expect that he is not being able to influence what is currently happening in Raqqa or Mosul or overall in the ISIS as they continue to lose their physical caliphate," coalition spokesman U.S. Army Colonel Ryan Dillon told a Pentagon briefing, using an acronym for the militant group. "That said, we don't have any concrete evidence on whether or not he's dead either." Earlier, Experts on Islamist groups see no clear successor but regard Iyad al-Obaidi and Ayad al-Jumaili as the leading contenders, though neither would be likely to assume Baghdadi's title of "caliph" or overall commander of Muslims. Russia's defence ministry said last week Baghdadi may have been killed in an air strike in Syria and Interfax ...

Saudi king empowers young reformer son in succession shake-up 22.6.2017 DNA: India
Saudi Arabia's King Salman made his son next in line to the throne on Wednesday, handing the 31-year-old sweeping powers as the kingdom seeks a radical overhaul of its oil-dependent economy and faces mounting tensions with regional rival Iran. Although Mohammed bin Salman's promotion to crown prince had long been expected among those who follow the royal family closely, the timing was a surprise and puts the kingdom's future in relatively untested hands. Mohammed bin Salman replaces his cousin, Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, a veteran security chief who led the Saudi campaign against Islamic State and al Qaeda, at a time when Riyadh faces tensions with Qatar and Iran and is locked into a war in Yemen. His appointment may make Saudi policy more hawkish against arch-rival Iran and other Gulf rivals such as Qatar, increasing volatility in an already unstable region, analysts said. "Under his watch, Saudi Arabia has developed aggressive foreign policies (Yemen, Qatar) and he has not been shy about making strong ...

No country for Muslims? Those detained after 9/11 can’t sue enforcement officials, says US Supreme Court 19.6.2017 DNA: Popular News
The Supreme Court says Muslim men detained after the September 11 attacks can't sue top US law enforcement officials. The justices by a 4-2 vote today ended a long-running lawsuit against former Attorney General John Ashcroft, former FBI Director Robert Mueller and other top Bush administration officials. The suit was filed by Muslim men who were detained for months in harsh conditions in a Brooklyn jail after the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. They were seeking damages against Ashcroft, Mueller, former immigration chief James Ziglar and the man who ran the federal jail. A lower court still may re-examine claims against the jailer. Only six of the nine justices were eligible to take part in the ...

Building blocks of harmony, not hate, in Punjab 12.6.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
In a shining instance of communal harmony, members of the Sikh and Hindu communities have come together to revive once abandoned mosques in Punjab. After Partition, thousands of Muslims migrated to Pakistan, leaving behind abandoned structures that were once used for worship. In a bid to reach out to his Muslim brethren, the Shahi Imam of Punjab, Maulana Habibur Rehman Sani, has been working tirelessly to give these mosques a new lease of life with the help of members from the Hindu and Sikh communities. "The situation in Punjab is different as compared to other parts of the country. Sikhs and Hindus are joining hands to restore these mosques. They are also generous with donations," says Mohammad Muktseem Ahrari, Principal Secretary, Majlis-e-Ahrar-e-Islam."In the last 70 years, we have been able to revive over 360 mosques, some in rural areas, where only a few Muslim families reside," he added. In December 2016, after over 70 years, the doors of Masjid Umar on Sarai Road near Phagwara were opened ...

Muammar Gaddafi's son Gaddafi son Saif al-Islam freed from Libya after 6 years in captivity 11.6.2017 DNA: Top News
Saif al-Islam Gaddafi has been freed by an armed group in western Libya where he was being held following the 2011 revolt against his late father, former leader Muammar Gaddafi, one of his lawyers and the brigade involved said. He was released in the town of Zintan under an amnesty law passed by a parliament based in eastern Libya, lawyer Khaled al-Zaidi said on Sunday, adding that Saif was headed to another city which could not be named for security reasons. Saif, 44, is the most prominent of the late leader's children, and was touted by some as a possible successor before the uprising six years ago in which Gaddafi was toppled and killed. It is unclear what role the younger Gaddafi could play in Libya, where a complex array of armed groups and competing governments are vying for control. But some in eastern Libya, where military commander Khalifa Haftar has been building power, have been pressing for Saif's release amid a push from former regime figures to reassert influence. Earlier reports that Saif ...
