It will take up the matter for further hearing on March 23.BJP leader Subramanian Swamy had filed an intervention plea in the matter in the top court in August 2017.

Muslims should gift the land in Ayodhya for Ram Temple: Sri Sri
New Delhi;Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, who is of late involved in mediation on the Ayodhya issue, says the best solution to the festering Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid dispute is an out-of-court settlement under which the Muslims gift the land to the Hindus for building a grand Ram Temple. The 61-year-old spiritual leader, who met leaders of both Sunni and Shia sects of the Muslim community recently, also says that he is not in touch with the government — and that it has nothing to do with his efforts. Ravi Shankar, who has a global following, denies vehemently that he talked of “bloodshed” in case the Supreme Court rules the title dispute in favour of one community or the other. “Because it’s Lord Ram’s birthplace, there is such a strong feeling connected with the place. And since it is not that important place for Muslims and (is) also in a place where there is conflict, namaaz is not acceptable. Anyway, it is not going to serve the purpose; and when it is not serving the purpose of the other community (Muslims), then, it should be gifted,” he told IANS. Ravi Shankar said that if the SC rules in favour of the Mandir then there will be heartburn. If it rules for the Masjid, there will agian be heartburn.“So, in either case, there will be discord in society. I want to create a win-win situation, where both communities come together and respect for each is restored, where respect of each is honoured. That is the formula we are suggesting… why not do it?” he said. The spiritual leader said he was hopeful that an out-of-court settlement could be reached because he has been talking to people in both the communities, and they both agree that there should be a settlement. “On that only (was) the initiative mooted. It’s not that I jumped into it suddenly,” he said. Asked if there were any deadlines for finding an amicable solution ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, he said, “No such deadline. I am just saying what would be the best for both communities. Nothing to do with elections, not at all. Only an amicable solution.”IANS
Muslims should extend support to construction of Ram temple: Giriraj Singh
New Delhi: Union Minister Giriraj Singh on Wednesday said that Muslims should follow in the footsteps of Shia Waqf Board and support the construction of Ram temple on the disputed site."I believe our side is stronger. We will respect the court's decision but I would say that the way our Shia brothers have extended support to build the Ram temple, other Muslim brothers should also do so, and let go of their obstinacy because we both are descendants of Hindus," Singh said."If they remain adamant, it will harm the communal harmony. Do they want that?" he added.BJP MP Vinay Katiyar concurred with Singh and said, "Whatever happens, Ram Mandir will be there and nothing else."ANI

Mohammad Hussain Saiyed, 70, a farm labourer, and Farnaz’s father, said he sold his eight buffaloes over the last two months due to the festering tension between the communities. He has also stopped going to deposit milk at the milk collection centre — it is in the Hindu area, and he is scared, he admitted.In the attack on the morning of March 5, Saiyed’s wife Roshan Bano, in her sixties, was also beaten up – three of her fingers were chopped off.

Finger pointed at Israel over attack on Palestinian PM convoy
The hand of Israel is not being ruled out as Hamas announces an inquiry into an explosion that targeted the convoy of West-Bank-based Palestinian PM during a visit to Gaza Strip.Tuesday's blast injured several security guards of Rami Hamdallah but left him unharmed during a visit to the Hamas-run territory to open a public-works facility there.The explosion happened shortly after Hamdallah's convoy passed through Israeli-controlled Erez checkpoint, known to Palestinians as Beit Hanoun, in northern Gaza.Sources told Al Jazeera that Hamdallah and Ismail Haniya, senior political leader of Hamas, spoke by phone later in the day and agreed that Israel was behind the explosion because it appeared to be the incident's main beneficiary. Youssef al-Mahmoud, a Palestinian Authority spokesman, denied via the Palestinian agency WAFA that any phone call took place between Hamdallah and Haniya.Hamas has denied any involvement in explosion, and said it would launch an investigation to "bring those behind the attack to justice".Hamas and Fatah, 2 main Palestinian political parties, signed a reconciliation agreement in Oct.2017, ending a decade of division that saw 2 parallel governments operating in Gaza and the West Bank, respectively.Hamdallah, who heads the Palestinian Authority government based in Ramallah, appeared on live television at the inauguration of a wastewater-treatment plant in Gaza.Shortly afterwards, he returned to Ramallah where he appeared unfazed as he delivered a brief address outside his office.aljazeera

Sri Lankan Muslims accuse police of watching a mob attack them
Sri Lanka:Windows broken and glass shattered on the ground, Razeey and his mother were barely beginning to put their house back together after a mob threw rocks through the windows during a riot. Razeey’s family is Muslim, and like many of their neighbours, they are reeling from an attack they say was led by violent Buddhist monks who came from the south.Earlier this month, riots erupted, and more than 200 businesses and homes that belonged to Muslim owners were damaged. At least 2 people were killed and more than two dozen were injured in the clashes. “There were at least 500 people,” Razeey said, “there was a group of them, they came and we left before they reached the house.”His uncle, Amam, came into the house to join the conversation. He pulled up a plastic chair and piped in, “I ran into the bathroom, it’s a concrete building, so we hid,” he said, “and when everything [riot] finished, we came out and everything was burned and lost.”Witnesses to the riots say the police are to blame because they stood by on the streets and allowed the mob to go on a rampage.Amam said, “They [police] can stop it but they don’t stop it. This [incident] was already arranged, it was very organised, the government knew, but they didn’t do their duty.”Another man, Faleel, 27, told TRT World he is frustrated and that “the security forces are racist. They are all against us. With the security forces help, [rioters] were able to attack.”Turkish Radio & TV Corporation (TRT World)

Mosque finally approved in US city after Muslim group sues
A US city finally gave approval for the construction of a mosque in the state of New Jersey, ending a saga that started last year when the local govt rejected the effort and a group of Muslims sued in response.The approval late on Monday came after the two-year effort to convert an abandoned warehouse into a mosque and Islamic community centre in Bayonne, a working-class city across the harbour from New York City.According to the lawsuit, the effort for the mosque was met by virulent attacks against the Muslim religion and was then unfairly voted down by the city's zoning board."We are very pleased to have received a unanimous approval from the zoning board and look forward to welcoming Bayonne residents of all faiths to the city's first mosque," said Adeel Mangi, a lawyer for Muslim group, said.aljazeera
Meet Gina Haspel, said to be first female CIA director, a prominent figure in torturing terrorists
Gina Haspel broke another glass ceiling in her illustrious career in CIA running over more than 3 decades when US President Donald Trump announced that she would become the first woman to lead the agency.In a surprise move, Trump yesterday announced that he was removing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and replacing him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo and elevating Haspel, who was his deputy.The Senate must vote on 61-year-old Haspel's confirmation to succeed Pompeo. If confirmed by the Senate, Haspel would be first women to lead the CIA.However, influential lawmakers yesterday indicated that they are unlikely to give her a pass. In fact, they are gearing up to grill her over her role in torture programme.She is the winner of George HW Bush Award for excellence in counterterrorism and also Intelligence Medal of Merit. On a flip side, Haspel once reportedly ran a secret prison in Thailand where terrorism suspects were allegedly subjected to harsh interrogation techniques like waterboarding. According to 'The Wall Street Journal', she was part of a team that oversaw CIA's detention and interrogation of suspected terrorists, using techniques that many experts and lawmakers since have described as torture.Top senators were yesterday quick in pointing at her role in the torture programme.Republican Senator John McCain, Chairman of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee said the torture of detainees in US custody during the last decade was one of the darkest chapters in American history."During the confirmation process, Haspel needs to explain the nature and extent of her involvement in CIA's interrogation programme. I know the Senate will do its job in examining Ms. Haspel's record as well as her beliefs about torture and her approach to current law," McCain said. Senator Dianne Feinstein said, "It's no secret I've had concerns in the past with her connection to CIA torture programme and have spent time with her discussing this".Senator Ron Wyden, a senior member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, opposed the nomination of Haspel and called for total transparency about her background. Senator Martin Heinrich, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said Trump's decision to nominate Haspel to serve as CIA Director is "deeply troubling".PTI
