Pope urges effort to rebuild trust in North Korea, Syria 8.1.2018 General News
Pope Francis is urging international efforts to rebuild trust on the Korean peninsula and in Syria, using his annual foreign policy address to press his demand that political leaders put the dignity of their people before war, profits or power. In a wide-ranging speech today to ambassadors from some 185 nations, Francis reaffirmed the need to respect the status quo of Jerusalem and refrain from any initiative that exacerbates hostilities. He denounced the use of child labor to fuel today's global economy and demanded that governments curb global warming, integrate migrants and participate in a "serene and wide-ranging debate" on nuclear disarmament. Francis said World War I, which ended 100 years ago this year, teaches that war isn't deterred by the "law of fear," but rather by reason.

Six people, including a history-sheeter, have been arrested for extorting money from a businessman by posing as members of the state human rights organisation, police said. Ramachandra and five of his accomplices visited a handbag-manufacturing unit in Sampigehalli, North Bengaluru, by posing as members of the human rights organisation and confronted the owner, Shahbaz, for "employing" child labourers. They asked him to pay Rs 2 lakh or they would file a criminal case against him and lock down his firm. Shahbaz sought some time to arrange the money. Meanwhile, the gang demanded refreshment. Doubting their bona fides, Shahbaz informed a friend who, in turn, alerted the jurisdictional Sampigehalli police. The police rushed to the spot and arrested the gang.

Director and theatre artiste K Suchendra Prasad has always closely monitored issues related to children, especially those pertaining to child rights. His travel across the State and stint with projects associated with UNICEF gave him an understanding of how child rights have been violated in several sections of society. He has seen up close the hardship, suffering and exploitation of children. The director has, in fact, consolidated what he witnessed in his latest project, Sandigdha. Suchendra says that after his travel he understood that child rights existed only on paper and that nothing substantial was done to alleviate the suffering of children, especially in the urban areas.
