The Supreme Court today fixed May 11 for commencement of hearing on pleas challenging the validity of triple talaq, nikah halala and polygamy practices among Muslims. A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justice D Y Chandrachud said the matter will be heard by a Constitution bench during the summer vacation. On March 27, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) told the Supreme Court that the pleas challenging such practices among Muslims were not maintainable as the issues fell outside the realm of judiciary. The Board had also said that the validity of Mohammedan Law, founded essentially on the Holy Quran and sources based on it, cannot be tested on the particular provisions of the Constitution. It had said there was a need for "judicial restraint" before going into constitutional interpretation of these unless such an exercise becomes unavoidable. The apex court had earlier said it would decide issues pertaining to "legal" aspects of the practices of triple talaq, nikah halala and ...

Civic-run Mahila Haat is now a wedding venue 30.3.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Expected to empower women artisans and generate revenue, the Mahila Haat, opened by the unified municipal corporation of Delhi atop the Aruna Asaf Ali parking in 2012, presents a very sorry picture today. The place, now under the north corporation, was completely shut for the last six months, but ahead of the municipal elections, the civic body has announced that the space will be used to host wedding functions. Built opposite the GB Pant Hospital at a cost of Rs 2.2 crore, the haat was neglected by the corporation for years, before they shut it down completely. According to officials, from its inauguration in 2012 till March 2014, the corporation spent around Rs 8.03 lakh on its maintenance. The cash-strapped corporation, however, earned nothing from the haat in the last five years. The space had 55 stalls, a performance stage, a garden, and two canteens. It had come up in place of the popular Shehnai banquet hall. In the recent budget, ahead of the upcoming civic polls, the corporation woke up to the ...

Oregon: US court dismisses case against H-1B lottery system 29.3.2017 DNA: Top News
A US court has dismissed a lawsuit that challenged the lottery system for determining successful applicants for H-1B visas, the most sought after by Indian IT firms and professionals. The ruling by a federal judge in Oregon means that there will be no change in the H-1B visa issuance process for the fiscal 2018 which begins on April 3. As a result, successful H-1B visa applicants are expected to be determined by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) through a lottery system. The USCIS receives more applications for H-1B visas than the Congressional mandated limit of 65,000 in the general category and another 20,000 for those foreign students who have masters or higher degree from a US academic institution. The case against the lottery system was filed by two firms from Portland -- Tenrec Inc, a web development company and Walker Macy, a landscape architecture firm. In its 31-page order last week, US District Court Judge Michael Simon upheld the USCIS's argument that a H-1B visa application ...
