Day after Trudeau's apology, new video emerges showing him wearing blackface makeup 20.9.2019
Ottawa: New damning images of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wearing blackface makeup emerged on Canadian television on Thursday, throwing his floundering re-election bid into further disarray. Released by broadcaster Global News, and confirmed to AFP by his campaign as being Trudeau "in the early 1990s", the footage depicts the Liberal leader in ripped jeans and a t-shirt, his arms up and dark makeup on his face. Late on Wednesday, Trudeau apologised after 'Time' magazine published a photograph of him in brownface makeup at an "Arabian Nights"-themed party 18 years ago. The son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, who is considered the father of modern Canada, has admitted to wearing similar makeup in his teens when he sang Harry Belafonte's 1956 hit "Banana Boat Song (Day-O)" at a high school talent contest. "I have worked all my life to try to create opportunities for people, fight against racism and intolerance," he told a televised news ...

Doddaballapura inscribes a tale of secularism in stone 20.9.2019
Bengaluru: For those who thought that secularism was a modern day concept born out of western democracy and liberal ideas, this could come as an eye-opener. For in the Doddaballapura taluk office in the outskirts of Bengaluru rests a stone inscription dating back to 1267 AD in not one but two diverse languages-old Kannada and Persian! What makes the inscription which speaks about the charitable grants to a Hindu temple, all the more unique is that it was saved from being used as building material four centuries later by Sheik Abdulla, also known as Farukh, the Muslim ruler of Doddaballapura and a representative of the Mughal rulers based in Shahjahanabad (Delhi). The inscription is therefore a living example of how the secular foundations of the country were laid down with a ruler of Mughal ancestry preserving a Hoysala inscription on the contributions to the Gavareshwara temple which then existed in Doddaballapura. The inscription also finds place in the 9th volume of Ephigraphia Carnataka written in ...
