Scholars divided on women attempting Haj without 'mehram' 16.10.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
The recommendation of the Central Haj Committee to the Ministry of Minority Affairs to allow women in groups of four above the age of 45 years of age to travel for Haj without a mehram (a close male relative), has led to several Muslim scholars to oppose it, saying Islam does not permit. The recommendations were submitted for the drafting of the new Haj Policy of 2018-22. Uzma Naheed, part of the Markazi Majlis-e-Amla (Central Working Committee) of the All India Muslim Majlis Mushawarat (AIMMM), feels that the move might prove to be problematic for women. "Travel to Haj is not easy. It requires a lot of physical exertion, and is one of the main reasons why women prefer having a male companion," said Naheed. Maulana Wali Rehman of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) said that the controversy is unnecessary. "Some schools of thought allow women to travel without a mehram while others do not. The report of the Central Haj Committee does not compel anyone," said Rehman. Kamal Farooqui of the ...

Challengers urge U.S. Supreme Court to rule on Donald Trump travel ban 5.10.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Challengers to President Donald Trump's travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries on Thursday urged the U.S. Supreme Court to decide the policy's legality even though it has been replaced with a revised plan, while his administration asked that the case be dismissed. In separate letters to the court, the American Civil Liberties Union and the state of Hawaii said the justices should still hear the case, which had been scheduled for arguments next week but was taken off their calendar after the administration announced the reworked ban last month. The Justice Department urged the justices not to hear the case, to throw out earlier lower court rulings that had invalidated the ban and to order that the legal challenges be dismissed. Trump's three successive moves to block entry into the United States by people from several predominantly Muslim countries have been among his most contentious acts since taking office in January. Trump had promised as a candidate "a total and complete shutdown of ...

Move to check illegal immigration 2.10.2017 DNA: Money
The central government has approved two immigration check posts along the borders with Myanmar and Bangladesh, in view of the ongoing violence in Myanmar's Rakhine state, which has triggered an influx of Rohingya Muslims and illegal Bangladeshi immigrants into India.

RSS' Muslim wing says Rohingya not welcome, wants grand temple in Ayodhya 1.10.2017 DNA: Money
RSS-affiliated Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) would give a call for pushing Rohingya Muslims out of India and pitch for construction of a grand Ram Temple in Ayodhya at an event in Uttar Pradesh on October 4. RSS national executive member Indresh Kumar is its chief patron. MRM has chosen Saharanpur in BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh to hold what it calls the 'Paigam-i-Aman' conclave from where the message would be loud and clear. Saharanpur has been ridden by communal as well as caste violence in the recent past. Minority Affairs and Waqf minister of Uttar Pradesh, Laxmi Narayan Chaudhary, would be the chief guest at the event. According to top sources in the Manch, four resolutions would be passed at the conclave: on modernisation of madrasas; cow slaughter and lynching; Rohingya Muslims; and on Ram temple in Ayodhya. "We support the stand taken by the Centre in the Rohingya matter. We have seen throughout history that those who have come as guests stayed put and from tenants turned into owners. Bangladeshi ...

Pak fuelling Rohingya fire 1.10.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
After a three-year cat-and-mouse game, security forces in Kashmir were finally hot on the trail of Adil Pathan, believed to be the brother of Jaish-e-Mohammad's (JeM) Kashmir operations chief Mufti Ashghar, in 2015. Adil had been tasked by Ashghar and JeM chief Masood Azhar to recruit youngsters and revive the outfit, edged out after its cadres were found involved in the then Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's assassination bid in 2003. The Army and the J&K police's counterinsurgency Special Operations Group (SOG) killed Adil and one of his accomplices on October 8, 2015, at Harriparigam village in Awantipora, 30 km south of Srinagar. To their horror, the accomplice turned out to be a Myanmar national, who had taken refuge in Pakistan. After a series of interrogations and intelligence contacts, they could confirm that he was Abdul Rehman -al-Arkani, known as Chhota Burmi among JeM cadres. According to sources, Burmi had infiltrated into Kashmir along with Pathan. Due to his nickname, intelligence ...

Women rejoice after Saudi king lifts driving ban; celebs laud move; academic calls it PR stunt 27.9.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Saudi Arabian women awoke to news of a royal decree permitting them to drive starting next year - and some were already behind the wheel on Wednesday, even though licences will not be issued for nine months. "Saudi Arabia will never be the same again. The rain begins with a single drop," Manal al-Sharif, who was arrested in 2011 after a driving protest, said in an online statement. Online videos showed a handful of women driving cars overnight, after King Salman's decree was announced late on Tuesday. "I wish I could translate my feelings right now. I feel like no one can understand it fully but us," said Abeer Alarjani, 32, who plans to start driving lessons this weekend. "Now I'll finally dare to dream for more." The move represents a big crack in the laws and social mores governing women in the conservative Muslim kingdom. The male guardianship system requires women to have a male relative's approval for decisions on education, employment, marriage, travel plans and even medical treatment. Saudi ...
