Fatwa against women for worshipping Ram 22.10.2017 DNA: Opinion
After banning selfies, shaping eyebrows, and hair-cutting, Darul Uloom Deoband has now ousted about a dozen Muslim women who worshipped Lord Ram on Diwali and participated in an Aarti function in Varanasi, the parliamentary constituency of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Infuriated over the Varanasi event, Darul Iftaa, the fatwa factory of Darul Uloom Deoband, issued a fatwa ousting Muslim women who indulged in idol worship. "Worship of anyone except Allah is banned in Islam, which does not allow idol worship. The act of these Muslim women is anti-Islamic and they are ousted from Islam with immediate effect," said Mufti Taikh Qashmi. Qashmi added that these Muslim women may embrace Islam again, if they sought an apology from Allah and read Kalma to complete the Islamic purification process.

The Muslim Women Foundation has been organising the programme since 2006 ...

Cleaner Diwali, Delhi air quality still turns severe 20.10.2017 DNA: Top News
The Supreme Court's ban on sale of firecrackers in the National Capital Region (NCR) to lessen health risks this year had some impact as Delhi had its cleanest Diwali in three years, but pollution levels still peaked to dangerous levels on Thursday night and on Friday morning. Air pollution in Delhi hit several times the healthy limit on Friday. A thick, toxic haze engulfed Delhi that ranks among the world's most polluted cities the next morning. People clearly managed to procure crackers both from inside and outside NCR or used old stocks. PM 2.5, particulate matter, less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, which can be inhaled and become lodged in the lungs and blood cells, soared dangerously.
