Triple Talaq bill: Cabinet approves provision of bail by magistrate, offence remains non-bailable
New Delhi: Union Cabinet today approved inclusion of a provision of granting bail to men found guilty of giving instant triple talaq to their wives, sources in the government said. While the offence continues to remain non-bailable, the latest provision makes it permissible for a magistrate to grant bail to the accused.The triple talaq bill aims to “set aside” the centuries-old practice of instant divorce by men.While the Bill was cleared by Lok Sabha last year, it made little headway in Rajya Sabha where the government lacks numbers. The provision of bail was one of the demands of the opposition parties. Under the amendments cleared today, the magistrate will have powers to grant bail, the sources said.The proposed law would only be applicable on instant triple talaq or ‘talaq-e-biddat’ and it would give power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking “subsistence allowance” for herself and minor children.A woman can also seek the custody of her minor children from the magistrate who will take a final call on the issue. The Bill proposes a 3-year jail term and fine for any Muslim man who divorced his wife by uttering talaq 3 times in quick succession. Sources said the Bill also deals with subsistence allowance for Muslim women and custody of minor children. Indian express

Majlis, sharia courts to help prevent cases of talaq
Mumbai: Women advocacy group Majlis has joined hands with a group of city-based Darul Qazas or Shariah courts to help resolve Muslims’ matrimonial disputes and prevent triple talaq. Activists from Majlis and several qazis(judges) from Darul Qazas decided to co-ordinate and help each other to provide relief to women victims, at a brainstorming session at Islam Gymkhana on Wednesday.“There is a wrong impression that Majlis is hostile to Muslims. We work among women victims, many of them Muslims, and want to help Darul Qazas, and get their help in reconciliation and counselling process so that women don’t have to knock at doors of courts often,” said Majlis founder head Flavia Agnes. She agreed that Darul Qazas are not parallel courts but function as counselling and reconciliation centres and help reduce the burden of courts.All-India Muslim Personal Law Board member Maulana Mahmood Daryabadi said only practising Muslims visit Darul Qazas and qazis cannot deviate from Quranic commandments and Sharia rules while resolving disputes.Senior advocate Yusuf Muchhala, who also heads Muslim Personal Law Board’s legal cell, suggested that Darul Qazas should not confine themselves to passing judgements but also work for social reforms within Muslim society. He agreed that the term ‘Shariah court’ gives the impression that they are parallel courts, but they are not courts as their rulings are not binding, and if a party is unhappy with its ruling, they can always approach secular courts.TOI
Fearful Muslim families flee UP's village as cops crack down to ‘help’ kanwarias
Khelum (UP):“We have secret information that during the Kanwar yatra you might create trouble…with this red card we are informing you that if you create any trouble during the Kanwar yatra, action will be taken against you. You will be held accountable.”This is what “red cards” given to at least 250 residents — Muslims and Hindus — of Khelum village in Bareilly district of Uttar Pradesh by police over the last week say. Apart from the police’s red cards, meant to deliver a “psychological message”, the district administration has identified 441 locals who “may cause trouble” and have had them sign “symbolic” bonds of Rs 5 lakh if they disturb the peace.The measures, which have set off panic in the village and prompted 70 Muslim families to leave, come a year after violence marred this village during the annual Kanwar Yatra that is underway. During the yatra last year, clashes between Muslims and Kanwarias who passed through a Muslim-dominated neighbourhood in Khelum village left dozens from both communities and 15 security personnel injured. 2 FIRs were registered — one naming 29 Muslims and another naming 14 Hindus.Kanwar Yatra will go through the same route this year. And while Hindus in the village, who are confident of a peaceful yatra, are not worried, the red cards, the frequent searches at homes and Rs 5 lakh bonds are an indication of trouble for most Muslims in Khelum.On Tuesday, the road leading up to the village is deserted – shops are shut, houses locked from outside and few roam the streets. Muslims reside on both side of this road and it is through here that the Kanwarias are scheduled to pass before reaching a temple at Guleria village, some 8 km away. Khelum has a population of 5,000, and Muslims, primarily engaged in farming or as labourers, account for 70 per cent.indianexpress

NDA Candidate Harivansh Singh Wins Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Elections
New Delhi:NDA candidate Harivansh Narayan Singh won Rajya Sabha deputy chairman elections held today with 125 votes. Opposition candidate B.K. Hariprasad of Congress party received 105 votes.Singh is a JDU leader from Bihar and a former journalist.The post was held before this by Congress leader P.J. Kurien, who retired on July 1.In the Upper House of 244 members, a candidate needed a minimum of 123 votes to win. BJP does not have a majority on its own in the House, and nominating a JD(U) candidate for the post was seen as the saffron party’s attempt to reach out to its allies. However, opposition’s chances looked bleak after reports that Naveen Patnaik’s BJD would be supporting the NDA candidate. Patnaik is said to have told Modi that the party could support Singh as he was a non-BJP candidate. Other disgruntled allies – the Shiv Sena and the Akali Dal – also said they would vote with the NDA.AAP had said that it will ‘boycott’ the elections because the Congress had not fulfilled its condition for support – a phone call from Rahul Gandhi. While Bihar chief minister and JD(U) chief Nitish Kumar did call AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal to ask for support for Singh, Kejriwal reportedly turned down the offer as he did not want to vote for the official NDA candidate. YSR Congress, DMK and a Trinamool Congress MPs also stayed out of the vote, NDTV reported.thewire

Mumbai:In what could be seen as a diplomatic victory for India, a Thailand court on Wednesday ruled in favour of the Mumbai Crime Branch and observed that Mudassar Hussain Sayed, alias Munna Jhingada, an alleged aide of Dawood Ibrahim, is an Indian citizen. Both India and Pakistan have been contesting for his custody for the last 18 years, each claiming Jhingada is its national and should be extradited for him to be brought to justice. Jhingada, said to be an ace shooter, has been lodged in a Thailand jail on charges of shooting Dawood’s rival Chhota Rajan in Bangkok in 2000. Rajan was deported in November 2015 and is on trial in some of the 70-plus cases against him.In 2014-15, after pursuing for long Jhingada’s family members, who stay in Mumbai suburb Jogeshwari, the Crime Branch secured a court order to get DNA samples of his parents and sister. The samples were sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) here, which carried out its profiling and sequencing. The reports were sent to the Thai authorities along with other documents such as Jhingada’s school leaving certificate, birth record of his first child, who was born in Mumbai, his voter ID cars, among others.indianexpress

Right to speech not licence to hurt religious beliefs: HC
Kochi:The fundamental right to speech is not an absolute licence to hurt religious beliefs of fellow citizens and persons who do so are not entitled to get anticipatory bail, which is a discretionary power of courts, the Kerala high court said on Wednesday.  “The fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression in a secular state is not an absolute license to injure and hurt the religious feelings and faiths and beliefs of fellow citizens. Persons who take the risk of publication and dissemination of scurrilous and blasphemous messages are not entitled to get the discretion of the court exercised in their favour,” Justice R Narayana Pisharadi said in the judgment on a petition seeking anticipatory bail. The court said cybercrimes have now become a major threat to society and social media provides opportunities for commission of crimes at a mass level. Responsible use of social media has become the need of the hour, the court noted while adopting a hard line against misuse of social media to hurt religious sentiments. The court was considering an anticipatory bail petition filed by 28-year-old Bijumon Narayanan of Thelakkad in Malappuram. He was accused of posting a comment on a Facebook page about a ‘news report’ published by ‘Marunadan Malayali’ about a prospective war between members of Islam and Christianity.TOI

Telangana : Muslim girls stay longer in school than boys: study
Hyderabad :Girls from the Muslim community in the State tend to stay longer in school than boys from the same community, a research paper has found, the reason being better access to schools and increased security measures for women in Telangana as compared to several other States.Authored by Commission of Inquiry (CoI) member Amir Ullah Khan, a research paper on Educational Status of Muslims - Focus on Telangana noted that the mean years of schooling, or the average number of completed years in school education of Muslim girls in Telangana is higher than that of boys.The research paper is one of 18 such documents compiled in a recently-released book ‘Vision 2025 Socio Economic Inequalities’ edited by Mr. Khan and academician Abdul Azim Akhtar.The research paper uses data obtained from the National Sample Survey Organisation which shows that Muslim girls in rural Telangana spent 6.1 years in school as compared to 5.4 years by boys. In urban areas, the number rose to 6.7 years as compared to 5.9 years for boys.Data also showed that other minority communities – Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Budhhists and Parsis – have fared better as compared to other socio-religious groups including Hindus, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. Explaining the trend, Mr. Khan said,“The book has a study of 16 States. What we found is that as compared to many States, in Telangana, there is relatively better access to education for Muslims. Security and safety is an advantage for Muslim girls which is why their mean years of schooling is higher than that of Muslim boys.”thehindu

Israel pounds Gaza, killing a pregnant woman and her child
At least 3 Palestinians, including a pregnant woman and her 18-month-old child, were killed by Israeli air attacks and artillery shelling on the besieged Gaza Strip. Israeli launched more than 140 attacks after about 150 rockets were fired from the coastal enclave, injuring at least six people in Israel. Israel's military on Thursday warned Hamas against a further escalation in violence, and Israeli media said officials were considering evacuating residents from areas near Gaza border."The way things continue to play out is significant. Hamas will understand in the coming hours, as in the past months, that this is not the direction it wants to choose," a senior military official was quoted as saying on the military's Twitter account.Military officials were quoted as saying by local media that Israel is close to a military operation in Gaza in which "Hamas will be hit hard."Yuval Steinitz, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's inner cabinet, told Israel Radio:"We are not eager for war and are not interested in a broader confrontation, but at the same time it could certainly happen because we will not make any concessions to Hamas."Israel's security cabinet will convene at 13:00 GMT to discuss the Gaza escalation. Abdullatif al-Kanoo, a spokesman for Hamas, said in a Twitter post on Thursday:"In regards to the continuing [Israeli] aggression…Palestinian resistance is in self-defence and has a duty to respond to the aggression against our people."Escalation of the barbaric shelling of Gaza and the deliberate targeting of civilians is premeditated and the occupation will suffer the repercussions and pay a higher price for its crimes."Palestinian news agency WAFA, citing health sources, reported at least 12 Palestinians were wounded in the overnight barrage.The attacks come as the UN and Egypt try to secure a deal between Israel and Hamas for a lasting truce. Nickolay Mladenov, the UN's special coordinator for Middle East peace process, said on Wednesday he was "deeply alarmed by the recent escalation of violence between Gaza and Israel, and particularly by today's mutiple rockets fired towards communities in southern Israel". aljazeera

Saudi is using Canada to send a message: analysts
Montreal:Saudi Arabia's decision to expel Canada's ambassador,recall thousands of students studying in North American country, and suspend future trade with Ottawa took many off guard this week. Saudi authorities pointed to a series of tweets, in which Canada's foreign affairs ministry called for the release of jailed Saudi human rights activists, as the reason for the ongoing diplomatic flare-up.But experts say the spat is not about the statements, but rather, it's the latest attempt by Riyadh to warn other countries of the consequences of speaking out against the kingdom's human rights record. "It's pretty clear that [Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman] is using Canada to send a message to the rest of the world that if you want to trade with Saudi, then you need to shut up on human rights," said Nader Hashemi, director of the University of Denver's Center for Middle East Studies at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies. Hashemi said the root cause of the diplomatic crisis with Canada is bin Salman himself.The crown prince, commonly referred to as MBS,"is drunk on power and arrogant and suffers from a deep dose of youthful naivete and believes that he has  Donald Trump in his back pocket and can do whatever he wants", Hashemi said.aljazeera
