Bill to halve Christian couples' cooling off period misses Parl date 8.4.2018 General News
Despite 24 states supporting a proposal to halve the separation period for Christian couples seeking divorce by mutual consent, the bill for the purpose has missed its date with Parliament. The bill to amend the 149-year-old Christian Marriage Act could not be introduced in the just-concluded Budget session of Parliament. The government had informed Lok Sabha in May 2016 that it has decided to amend Section 10 A of the 1869 Act to reduce the minimum mandatory period of separation from two years to one year to bring parity with other personal laws. The move followed a Supreme Court ruling and demands by the community. The Kerala high court had earlier "read down" the provision of two year separation period. The Law Ministry's Legislative Department had sought the states' views on the issue as the amendment related to the personal law. Twenty four states and UTs had supported the proposal. "Yes, we have to amend the law but it could not be placed before the Cabinet as we had to seek ...

HC grants bail to man accused of running edu institute without recognition 17.3.2018 General News
The Allahabad High Court has granted bail to a man accused of running an educational institute here without proper recognition from the authorities concerned. It is alleged that Vinod B Lal, along with others, was running the Ewing Christian Public School Junior Branch without having recognition from authorities. The bail application, filed by Lal, was opposed by Additional Advocate General of Uttar Pradesh, who submitted that the accused has a long criminal history and was involved in many forgery cases. Justice M K Gupta granted bail to Lal with conditions that he shall surrender his passport, if any, before the trial court judge within a week and shall not tamper with the evidence or threaten witnesses in the case. Also, he should remain present before the trial court on each date fixed, either personally or through his counsel, the judge said.

Pakistan under pressure to rein in blasphemy law 9.3.2018 General News
One of the most frightening things about Pakistan's blasphemy law is that the simplest act can spiral into charges that can bring the death penalty. In the case of Aasia Bibi, a Christian woman, it started when she brought water to her fellow women workers on a farm. On that hot day in 2009, Bibi had a sip from the same container and some of the Muslim women became angry that a Christian had drunk from the same water. They demanded she convert, she refused. Five days later, a mob accused her of blasphemy. She was convicted and sentenced to death. Later this month, the Supreme Court is expected to hear her appeal. Pakistan is under new international pressure to curb Islamic extremism, and activists at home say one place to start is by changing its blasphemy law. In January, the US State Department cited the law as one of the reasons as it put Pakistan on a watch list of countries accused of "severe violations of religious freedoms." The move came as the Trump administration is ...

The family of a Christian woman convicted of blasphemy in Pakistan has appealed to the Supreme Court to hold an early hearing as she been on the death row since 2010. Aasia Bibi, 51, has been on the death row since November 2010 after being convicted of committing blasphemy. In 2014, the Lahore High Court upheld her death sentence. She challenged it in the Supreme Court which stayed the execution in July 2015. Since then no progress has been made in the case and Aasia is languishing in jail.

Aasia's family, including her husband and two daughters, along with her lawyer Saiful Malook yesterday visited the Supreme Court. They met Additional Registrar (Judicial) and asked for a meeting with Chief Justice Saqib Nisar so that they could request him to fix an early date for hearing, The Express ...
