JuD holds UN responsible for attacks against Muslims 24.5.2018 General News
The Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) has blamed the United Nations for allowing attacks against Muslims.At a recent Friday sermon in Peshawar, the JuD Amir criticised the UN, saying, "The United Nations is nothing but slave women of infidels. It is a legal organisation which approves the killings of innocent Muslims. We abide by the decisions of this organisation (UNO) and have no interest towards teachings of the Quran."He added, "It is certain that those outfits which are not favourite of the UN are also banned in Pakistan. The UN allows attack by infidels against Muslims."Spewing venom against the United States, which recently opened its embassy in Jerusalem, the Amir said, "The US' decision to shift its Embassy to Jerusalem is meant for committing atrocities against Muslims to please the Jews. It is a deliberate act of the US carried on at the beginning of holy month of 'Ramadan' with aim to inculcate pain to the Muslims and to mock them. Innocent, unarmed 70-80 youth were massacred and no ...

Algeria football stadiums, violent outlets for frustrated youth 23.5.2018 General News
Football stadiums across Algeria have turned into venues of almost weekly clashes, reflecting what commentators see as the frustrations of young Algerians faced with bleak prospects. Violence peaked in 2014 with the death of Albert Ebosse, a Cameroon striker with Algeria's JS Kabylie, who was killed on the field by a projectile thrown from the stands. But sanctions and fair play campaigns have since failed to quell the phenomenon. This season's matches -- both professional and amateur -- have been regularly interrupted by pitch invasions, clashes between young fans and police, and attacks on referees. Club suspensions and bans on spectators have changed little. Last December, clashes between rival fans at an amateur derby in eastern Algeria left one person dead. In mid-April, more than 100 people were injured in clashes at an Algeria Cup semi-final, pushing the interior ministry to set up a commission of inquiry, determined to "put an end" to the violence. Sociologist Noureddine ...

China's war against Islam 22.5.2018 General News
There has been a sharp uptick in government-backed persecution of Christianity and other religions in China, but none are currently suffering as much as the Muslim population in the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR). Some 11 million Uighurs reside in this northwest Chinese province.Of course, using the word "autonomous" to describe Xinjiang is a complete misnomer, because it has no autonomy whatsoever. Instead, thousands of Muslims are currently incarcerated in extrajudicial detention centers and reeducation camps.The exact number of victims is impossible to verify, but estimates range from several hundred thousand upwards. Human Rights Watch, for example, claims 800,000 Muslims are detained, while Uighur exile groups estimate about 1 million Uighurs. They allege that nearly every Muslim household has been affected by these arbitrary arrests. For example, in Moyu county alone, 40% of adults have disappeared, with family members often having no idea where their loved one ...
