Pallavi Purkayastha murder: Sajjad Mughal gets life imprisonment

The security guard convicted of killing Pallavi Purkayasta in her apartment has been sentenced to life imprisonment by a Mumbai court.
Watchman Sajjad Mughal a native Kashmiri was convicted last week for the attempted rape and murder of the 25-year-old Purkayasta in her Mumbai flat, while the quantum of sentence was reserved for this week. Her family had been demanding the death sentence.
 Sajjad Moghul (22) also known as Sajjad Pathan, deliberately tripped the power twice that night, and stole the keys from Pallavi’s apartment when the electrician came to fix the problem.
Sajjad was reported to have bought a knife 15 days prior to the crime and had told other building staff that he planned to scare Pallavi and rape her.
Sajjad confessed that his intent was not murder, but rather to rape the 25-year old. When Pallavi aggressively fought back, he used the knife to slash her throat. He was subsequently charged with muder, molestation and trespassing.
The Mumbai Police arrested Sajjad at the Mumbai Central railway terminus the evening after her body was found, before he could catch a train to Surat from where he had planned to flee to Jammu and Kashmir.
Pallavi’s boyfriend Avik Sengupta did not survive to see if justice was served. He died following an illness in November 2013. Police reported that following the murder, Sengupta had also suffered from depression. An investigation by the police found that Sajjad Pathan's employers, Ahmed Hamid Enterprises, a private security firm, did not have his complete address. This has prompted the requirement for stringent documentation of security guards hired by private firms.

IB redflags entry of Wahhabi preachers into India

An IB report says some 25,000 preachers of the extreme Wahhabi form of Islam came to India last year as visitors, reports Vicky Nanjappa.
The ultra conservative brand of ‘Wahhabi Islam’ is gaining ground in India, according to a report by the Intelligence Bureau. The report reveals that at least 25,000 scholars preaching the conservative brand of Islam have visited India in 2013 and participated in events that have drawn in crowds of over 12 lakh people.
These preachers enter the country as visitors from across 20 countries, especially Saudi Arabia, and participate in events and preach their conservative, hardline doctrine to the youth. The IB report also says that most of these preachers attended events in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, the erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Bihar, Maharashtra and Jharkhand.
Experts added that during these events held by the Wahhabi preachers, the focus is on the implementation of the Sharia law in its strictest form. “They speak of the importance of the law and how it is the only way to save Islam from attacks,” said an IB official.
When asked who organises these events, authorities told that most of the events are organised by Tablighi Jamaats, who adopt a back-to-basics approach to Islam.
Other than the Tablighi Jamaat invitations, scholars preaching the Wahhabi doctrine were also invited by organisations such as the Ahl-e-Hadis and others, said an IB official.
Officials further added that most Indian Mujahideen operatives, who are in their custody, speak highly of the Wahhabi form of Islam. In fact, Yasin Bhatkal, the man behind the Indian branch of the Indian Mujahideen, which is responsible for several terror attacks in India, has said the IM was formed with the intention of implementing the Sharia law in the country.
Apart from the security threat from the indoctrination of some of the youth through these seminars, there is also a chance of hell breaking loose within the Muslim community too.
For, the overwhelming majority of India's Muslim subscribe to the moderate form of Islam. However, the worry is the gradual rise in the number of Muslims subscribing to the Wahhabi form of Islam. According to IB, around 10 years ago, this number was insignificant. Today, however, it fears that the number may have increased.
Officials say the trend needs to be kept in check. for which the hardcore preachers entering the country should be thoroughly vetted and their events should be looked into.

Christian Father Commits Suicide After ISIS Members Rape Wife and Daughter in Front of Him Because He Couldn't Pay Poll Tax

A Christian father who watched his wife and daughter get brutally raped by members of the militant group, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) because he couldn't pay them a poll tax in Mosul, Iraq, killed himself under the weight of the trauma this past weekend.

A report from the Assyrian International News Agency said ISIS began enforcing Islamic laws in the northern Iraq city which they overran on June 10.

Dr. Sallama Al-Khafaji of the Iraq High Commission for Human Rights said the incident happened on Saturday after ISIS began asking Christians in Mosul for a poll tax.

"In one instance, ISIS members entered the home of an Assyrian family in Mosul and demanded the poll tax (jizya). When the Assyrian family said they did not have the money, three ISIS members raped the mother and daughter in front of the husband and father. The husband and father was so traumatized that he committed suicide," said the report.

"The Christians have told me that they cannot pay this tax," Dr. Al-Khafaji told AINA, "and they say 'what am I to do, shall I kill myself?'"

Four Christian women were also reportedly shot dead by ISIS members because they were not wearing veils.

U.S. officials told CNN that they believe ISIS now has about 10,000 fighters in Iraq and Syria and the group has been functioning as an "increasingly capable military force."

According to a spokesman for Iraq's counterterrorism service, two senior ISIS members – an Algerian militant named Abu Omar al-Baghdadi and Abu Hafsa, self-styled governor of Tikrit – were killed late Monday during airstrikes in Tikrit, famous for being the hometown of former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Iraqi Kurdish President Massoud Barzani and other officials on Tuesday and Barzani painted a dire picture of security.

"We are facing a new reality and a new Iraq," Barzani told Kerry.

Barzani told CNN Monday that it may now be time for Kurds to push for their independence from Iraq because the country was crumbling.

"Iraq is obviously falling apart," he said. "And it's obvious that the federal or central government has lost control over everything. Everything is collapsing – the army, the troops, the police."

Muslim Dad Burns Daughter to Death for Walking Home with a Boy

 A father in Tunisia was accused of burning his 13-year-old daughter to death for walking home from school with a boy classmate. The girl Aya, who was a middle school student, was treated for nine days in the hospital before she finally succumbed to her fourth degree burns on June 7th. Thereafter, her father was arrested.

Reportedly, her death was the result of honour killing – a murder carried out by immediate family when a relative is perceived to have brought shame upon all members.  While such incidents are a common affair in countries like Syria and Pakistan, local media say honour killings are almost unheard of in modern-day Tunisia.

Following Aya’s death, activists called for a social media movement so that the incident would receive greater coverage globally. They also organized a march in solidarity for the victim on June 19.

“I cannot believe that this case could fall into oblivion… What happened is an unacceptable crime. Further, the reactions of some people who justify this barbaric act reflect the degree of ignorance that prevails in the country,” said a blogger in a Facebook post.  

Many people believe that this incident is symbolic of how Tunisia “continues to demonize the female gender.” A particular study from 2013 shows how attacks on women have increased over a period spanning across two decades – from 1989 to 2009. The figure could imply either a definite increase in the number of attacks or a heightened willingness to report them.

8 Year Old Brutally Raped
Meghalaya: An 8 year old minor was brutally raped by a 24 year old youth near the village of Chibinang, about 100 kms from the town of Tura.

A 24 year old, Munaf Ali, resident of a village near Bholarbitha, Chibinang had allegedly raped the 8 year old minor. He had been absconding since the incident. The rape took place on May 26 last. However, no one was made aware of the crime as the two families tried desperately to reach a compromise regarding the incident. It was only after the acting Office In-charge (OC) of Phulbari Thana, Digvijay Singh, came to know of the incident through sources that the police actually became aware of the case.

Pakistan woman stoned to death by family outside Lahore court

A Pakistani woman has been killed by her relatives outside Lahore High Court for marrying against their wishes.

Police said 30-year old Farzana Bibi died on the spot after being attacked with bricks and sticks.

Her father handed himself in, but police say her brothers and former fiance, who also took part in the attack, were still free.

Correspondents say hundreds of girls and women in Pakistan are killed every year by family members.

However, many more killings are believed to go unreported.

Farzana Bibi's parents accused her husband, Muhammad Iqbal, of kidnapping her, and had filed a case against him at the High Court.

However, she testified to police that she had married him of her own accord. Police said the couple had been engaged for a number of years.

As she arrived at the court building for a hearing, police said about a dozen family members pulled her aside and began to attack her and her husband, who managed to escape.

Police official Umer Cheema told Reuters that all the family members escaped after the killing, apart from her father, who has admitted his role in her death.

The BBC's Shumaila Jaffery says marriage against the wishes of relatives is culturally unacceptable in some parts of Pakistan.

Under Pakistani law, the victim's family is allowed to forgive the killer. However, in many cases family members are themselves responsible for the killing.

Officials said four suspects had died in the attack, while a fifth was in custody. Authorities late on Friday raised the death toll from the blast up from 31 to 39 people, with 94 others injured in the single biggest attack of its kind on Chinese soil.

The five suspects were all Uighurs — the ethnic Turkic-Muslim community native to Xinjiang — according to the names released by officials. They were identified as Nurahmat Ablipiz, Memet Memtimin, Raghimjan Memet, Memtimin Mahmat and Ablet Abdukadir.

Authorities said the five had “long been influenced by religious extremism” and had taken part in “illegal religious activities”, the official Xinhua news agency said.

On Friday, officials suggested the attackers may have also been influenced by “overseas” Uighur groups, with members of the separatist East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), which has claimed responsibility for earlier attacks, believed to be in Pakistan or Afghanistan.

Security has been tightened at border check points in Xinjiang, which neighbours Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and Afghanistan, officials said.

On Friday, the government announced the launch of a year-long “campaign against terror” in Xinjiang involving armed police and the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The government said the campaign “will focus on terrorists and religious extremist groups, gun and explosive manufacturing dens and terrorist training camps”. “Terrorists and extremists,” the Xinjiang government said, “will be hunted down and punished”.

Authorities announced a security crackdown on Saturday in China's Muslim northwest after a deadly bombing raised questions about whether tightening Beijing's grip might be feeding anti-Chinese anger and a rise of organized terrorism.

Islamic court allows pregnant woman to give birth before she is killed

So many bad things happen everyday in Islamic world that I don't have the time to post every single one of them but I try to highlight only a few.

 Sudanese women Meriam Yehya Ibrahim faces a death sentence for apostasy(leaving Islam). She is pregnant and the Islamic court said that she may have her baby before she is hanged.

An Islamic court in the Sudanese capital has said that a pregnant woman sentenced to hang for apostasy after she married a Christian man will be allowed to give birth before she is executed.

Ibrahim was convicted on May 11 of apostasy and given three days to recant her faith or face a gruesome sentence. She will be flogged – 100 lashes – and hanged, the report added.

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, 27, who was born to a Muslim father but brought up a Christian by her mother, was convicted on Sunday in Khartoum and given three days to recant her faith or face a possible death sentence.

“We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged,” Judge Abbas Mohammed Al-Khalifa told Mrs Ibrahim, addressing her by her father’s name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah.

Mrs Ibrahim also faces a sentence of flogging for adultery on the grounds that her marriage to a Christian man from South Sudan is considered void under Islamic law. She will be given 100 lashes. Because her father was Muslim, she was considered by the court to be the same.

Mrs Ibrahim told the judge: “I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy.”

Now many Muslims would say to the non-Muslims to deceive them that its against Islam but Islamic countries and Muslims are very strict they do not follow anything which is not written in their books.
I will show you authentic Hadith as everything I post here I back it up with facts.

This is from an Islamic website
It was narrated that Ibn 'Abbas said:
 "The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said: 'Whoever changes his religion, kill him.'"

Reference : Sunan an-Nasa'i 4062
In-book reference : Book 37, Hadith 97
English translation : Vol. 5, Book 37, Hadith 4067

It was narrated that Al-Hasan said:
"The Messenger of Allah [SAW] said: 'Whoever changes his religion, kill him.'"

Narrated `Ikrima:
Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to `Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn `Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Messenger (ﷺ), 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"

Reference : Sahih al-Bukhari 6922
In-book reference : Book 88, Hadith 5
USC-MSA web (English) reference : Vol. 9, Book 84, Hadith 57

Reference : Sunan an-Nasa'i 4060
In-book reference : Book 37, Hadith 95
English translation : Vol. 5, Book 37, Hadith 4065

Ibn 'Abbas (RAA) narrated that:
 The Messenger of Allah said, “He who changes his religion (i.e. apostates) kill him.” Related by Al-Bukhari.

English reference : Book 9, Hadith 1242
Arabic reference : Book 9, Hadith 1214

Mu’adh bin Jabal (RAA) narrated -
concerning a man who embraced Islam and then turned to Judaism (i.e. apostated), ‘I shall not sit down until he is killed. That is the Command of Allah and His Messenger, and he gave an order that he must be killed and so he was.’ Agreed upon. In a version by Abu Dawud, ‘He was given a chance to repent and retrun to Islam but he refused.’

English reference : Book 9, Hadith 1241
Arabic reference : Book 9, Hadith 1213

So  there are many Hadiths which mentions it and Islamic countries follow this rule even today. The punishment for leaving Islam is death. Dr. Zakir Naik a muslim scholar himself said that it is a treason for a Muslim to leave Islam, those who do it are considered traitors and given death punishment.

Still don't believe me, then hear it yourself from a Muslim scholar in this video

2 killed in Sikh and Muslim chash in Hyderabad old city

Two people were killed in police firing to stop clashes between Sikhs and Muslims in Hyderabad's Old City on Wednesday.
Curfew has been imposed in the Rajendra Nagar police station area under Cybererabad commissionerate in Hyderabad.
Trouble broke out near Sikh Chawni near Bahadurpura, adjacent to the Old City.

Attacks on houses followed while arson was reported in some parts of the area. Cyberabad Police Commissioner C.V. Anand and top officials of Hyderabad Police arrived at the spot and reviewed the situation. Contingents of armed police and paramilitary forces, which were brought to the city for election security, were rushed to the area. 

Riot broke out as Muslims burn Sikh flag in Hyderabad. The old city of Hyderabad is a muslim dominated area and Owaisi brothers who belong to AIMIM are very influential in that city. 

Its not something new in the old city of Hyderabad, they even have problem with a Hindu temple named "Bhagyalakshmi temple". The muslims there say that the temple is illegal and should be removed.

They have even burnt Indian flag in the old city of Hyderabad on the 64th Republic Day.

Few days ago there was clashes in Meerut between Hindus and Muslims
These type of things happen  more often where ever there are Muslims living alongside another religious community. When Muslims are in a very small minority in an area they are peaceful but as their numbers start to grow they become more and more violent and want to dominate. It doesn't happen between Hindus and Sikhs, Buddhists and Hindus, Jews and Christians etc.. 'in todays world' but it does happen between Muslims and any other religious community you think about. You can take any country in the world where there are Muslim living alongside another religious group you will always find some form of hate or violence; Pakistan, Hindus in  Bangladesh, Christians in Iraq, Coptic Christians in Egypt, Africa etc.

A scene from Egypt where muslims molesting a christian woman. This cannot happen in India as they are not in Majority but still it makes us become conscious and opens our eyes. An incident happened few days ago where an Islamist Group in Nigeria abducted 300 Nigerian School girls and they are still not freed so they are in news around the world everyday for some or the other negative thing.

61-year-old Omani national held in Hyderabad for marrying 2 minors

Marrying minor girls is allowed under Islamic sharia law but Indian law doesn't allow it.

Horrifying human trafficking in the form of marriages to Arabs continue to plague the poverty-stricken Muslim community in Hyderabad's Old City. Hardly within a month of a shocking incident reported in this paper, two such incidents have come to fore.

The Andhra Pradesh police on Saturday night arrested Omani national Madasari Rashed Masaaod Rashed, a 61-year-old landlord from Ibri city, for allegedly marrying two minor Muslim girls from Hyderabad's Old City after he allegedly negotiated for a sum of Rs1.4 lakh. Police said Rashed had paid Rs60,000 to the parents of the first bride and Rs80,000 for the second bride, besides payments to the brokers, qazis and others.

Rashed was picked up at a posh apartment complex in Banjara hills along with 11 others, including two fake qazis and the girls' parents, following a tip-off from a 'brides' who escaped his clutches.

While police have slapped charges of rape, Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act and Prohibition of Child Marriages Act on Rashed, the victims' parents have been booked under the Prohibition of Child Marriages Act. While two fake qazi's, three women brokers and middlemen were arrested, the kingpin of the racket, Habeeb, is absconding.

"The Omani national came to Hyderabad in first week of April as a medical tourist and approached four agents — Mohammed Jaffar Ali, Kareemunnisa Begum, Amena Begum and Mohammed Osman — for a young bride of below the age of 16 years and offered to pay as much as the girl's parents demanded," sub-inspector N Srisailam said

On interrogation, the police found that the qazi Mohammed Ghouse Mohiuddin who conducted the marriage of the minor girl at his home in Bilal Nagar on April 9 was paid Rs5,000. But the girl escaped when she was taken to Rashid's flat at Park Avenue apartment. So the Omani national wanted the broilers to fix another wedding which was done by the brokers gang and the second wedding was performed within one week by a fake qazi, (an employee at a local mosque) on April 15, says S Tripathi, police DCP of south zone.

Mohiuddin maintained his innocence, saying that the girl's parents as Habeeb showed the age of the first girl as 19 in the documents given to him.

The scandal of sham Arab weddings was exposed by Air India air hostess Amritha Ahluwalia way back in nineties when she rescued 12-year-old Ameena Begum wedded to a 60-year-old Sheikh on the Hyderabad-Mumbai flight and onward journey to Dubai.Thereafter, the Hyderabad city police set up a separate unit to monitor the activities of these ring leaders including — qazis, brothers, hotel and guest house owners — who spotted poor families with young brides and also the aged foreign nationals.

Initially, mostly oil rich Arab sheikhs were the suspects. But nowadays even students from Nigeria, Oman and other African countries engaged in such 'weddings'. The young brides were also often exploited to smuggle drugs and gold as well. "We have cracked at least 10 to 15 such student weddings," the Humayunnagar police claim.

Hindu muslim clashes in meerut several injured

 At least a dozen people were injured in a communal clash that lasted for nearly two hours in Meerut on Saturday. Three of the injured are reported to have suffered bullet injuries, and one is said to be critical.
According to reports, the violence started after a scuffle between Hindus and Muslims over putting up a fence around a well outside a mosque in Teergaraan area here. The clashes then spread to the nearby areas of Bazaza Bazar, Lala Bazar and Budhana gate. Both the groups are alleged to have fired at each other.
BJP corporator Vijay Anand, who was among the first to reach Teergaraan, was allegedly manhandled and his motorcycle was set on fire.
 “I reached the place carrying a copy of the local court verdict which banned any construction around the well. The court held that it is a public property as a Jain temple is also located in the area. Nobody paid heed to me. They pushed me aside and set my bike ablaze while the police took no action,” alleged Anand.
Local BJP leaders uploaded photographs of the youth who is reported to be critically injured on Facebook and WhatsApp.
Party supporters, led by Meerut Mayor Ravikant Ahluwallia, staged protests in the affected area.
“The police did not react in time, as a result of which the clash escalated. The local police are operating at the behest of the ruling party as they remained soft towards members of the minority community who started the trouble,” alleged Ahluwallia. 

Amit Jain, a resident of Teer Gran, said, "The ancient well adjacent to a mosque has been the bone of contention. Earlier, the two communities used to frequently clash over the possession of the well. In 1952, the city magistrate ordered that the well was public property, under the possession of the nagar nigam. In 1982, a permanent police picket was deployed there because Muslims would take possession of the well from time to time, as it was near the mosque. The police picket was removed two years ago." 
Now here is something to think about. In 1982, a permanent police picket was deployed there because Muslims would take possession of the well from time to time, as it was near the mosque. The police picket was removed two years ago. The question is why the police picket was removed ? The answer is, because Samajwadi party had to please a particular section of people because of which they came into powers in UP.

Somewhat similar incident took place in Pakistan where 60 Hindus Attacked and Forced Out of Their Homes for Drinking Water from ‘Muslims Only’ Fountain.
The thing is that these type of things happen where ever there are Muslims living alongside another religious community. It doesn't happen between Hindus and Sikhs, Buddhists and Hindus, Christians and Hindus, Jews and Christians etc.., but it does happen between Muslims and any other religious community you think about.

Type of Muslims that everyone likes

Recently, Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan made a statement that the soldiers who fought and won the war of Kargil were Muslims and not Hindus and Muslims won the war.

The way Maroof Raza, who’s a strategic affairs expert, humbled the representative from the Imam Council of India, Maulana Maqsood-ul-Hasan Qasmi in the video below fills our hearts with immense pride and emotion to realize that there will always be good men who’ll stand up to anyone who tries to question the sanctity of the Indian Army.

There are not many Muslims like this who who put country above their religion and don't give a damn about religion when it comes to country even if it means to fight against their own. Every loyal countryman respects such people with an open heart

Abdul Kalam.
Many muslims on facebook called him kafir for doing this because a Muslim can only bend in front of Allah and no one else, he cannot worship anyone else but Allah. Not a surprise the same people called the Indian National Song as un-islamic

Love Jihad

Love Jihad is an activity under which Muslim boys and men reportedly target young girls belonging to non-Muslim communities for conversion to Islam by feigning love or for grooming to use the girls as they wish like using them for supporting their activities. The term has been used to describe the activity in India, while similar activities have been reported in places like United Kingdom.

Islamists know today they cannot spread Islam using traditional ways by waging war, forcing non-muslims to pay tax "jizya" unless they convert or by using force like it happened in the olden days from the Middle East, Jerusalem, Iran all the way to India.

Today Muslims are using different methods to spread Islam which includes DAWAH, rapid immigration of Muslims into Europe and their demand for sharia law, cultural jihad,  love jihad etc.

In Islam it is believed that Allah gives greater rewards to Muslims who spread Islam, those who convince a non-Muslim to accept Islam.
Converting a non-Muslim girl to Islam is more fruitful and advantageous than converting a male.

There have been cases when the girl doesn't want to convert to Islam but marry a Muslim, the boy to prove his love doesn't force her to convert but after the marriage boys family pressurizes the girl to accept Islam and the boy doesn't go against his family.

Have you ever thought about whey so many people cares about some non-muslim girl marrying a Muslim but no one or just a handful of people think about a Hindu marrying a Sikh, a Christian marrying a Hindu, a Buddhist marrying a Christian etc ?
One of the reasons for this is hypocrisy of Muslims, according to Islam they don't allow a Muslim girl to marry a non-Muslim before the non-Muslim converts to Islam and becomes a Muslim. Islamic marriage cannot happen between a Muslim and a non-Muslim.
They don't give as much freedom to their girls as girls from other communities get. They keep their girls in check. It is easy for Muslims to socialize with girls from other communities whereas Muslims won't allow their girls to socialize with non-Muslim men.
If Muslims start giving their girls as much freedom as non-Muslim girls enjoy it will help destroy the boundaries which exist today.

 In so many cases when a Muslim girl marries a non-Muslim she is killed by her family.
Just a few examples:
Shafilea Ahmed murder: parents 'killed daughter for dating boys’
Muslim Moms Kill Daughters for Marrying Hindus
Muslim girl killed for love affair with Hindu
Muslim monotheists kill Hindu for marrying Muslim woman
'Love jihad': UK Sikh girls' exploitation worries Takht

Muslim tortures Hindu girl with razor blade for refusing to convert to Islam

Mohammed Yaseer arrested and now out on bail for uploading obscene pics of a girl a girl who was a Hindu, he was in a relationship with her.

Recently Assam MLA Rumi Nath was tourtured  my her Muslim husband. Earlier Rumi Nath ran away with her lover who was her facebook friend, she married him and converted to Islam. At that time she was married to a Hindu man and had a 3 year old child.

Found this on facebook we have her facebook id but we don't wish to disclose anyone's personal information here.
This is how some Non-Muslim girls are brainwashed by their Muslim lovers, any non-Muslim who says "revert to Islam" is brainwashed because only hardcore Muslims believe that every child is born a Muslim so the appropriate word is revert not convert.
Its quite surprising to see that some people are so ignorant.

Two terror suspects released after protests by muslims congress and APP joined in

New Delhi: After long protests by Jamia residents backed by AAP and Congress leaders on Sunday, the two students who were detained by the police in connection with the arrest of IM operatives were released late evening. They were, however, asked by the special cell to join the probe later.

The students were detained after Delhi Police busted an Indian Mujahideen module with the arrest of four terrorists in Rajasthan, who were planning a terror attack during Lok Sabha elections. The police made the arrest after they got specific input from the Intelligence Bureau. A significant amount of explosives were also recovered during the arrests.

Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said, "It is a big success. Waqas was wanted in many cases." Shinde, however, refused to divulge more details.

One of the arrested, Waqas is a close aide of Yasin Bhatkal and an accused in the 2011 Zaveri Bazar blasts in Mumbai.
Zia ur Rehman better known as Waqas is a Pakistani national who was trained by Lashkar and Jaish before being sent to India to help the Indian Mujhaheedin. His help was sought for his expertise in bomb making. Apart from him, Delhi's special cell also picked up three other terror suspects Mohammad Waqar Azhar, Mohammad Mahruf and Shaquib Ansari.
An expert in making electrical circuits for Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), Waqas has played an active role in a number of blasts since 2010. He was involved in the Jama Masjid shootout in September, 2010, the Varanasi bomb blast in December, 2010, the Mumbai serial blasts in July, 2011, the 2012 Pune blasts and the Hyderabad twin blasts in February 2013.
While the Delhi Police is tight lipped about the exact nature of attack, sources indicate that there was a clear attempt to disturb the electoral process. The terror suspects wanted to take advantage of the relative low security of political leaders and large number of public meetings to plan a spectacular attack.

Teen felt ‘degraded’ after teacher backed aikido student’s request to avoid touching females on religious grounds

A Nova Scotia high school student is asserting she was reduced to “second-class citizenship” after her Halifax aikido school followed provincial human rights law and accommodated a male student’s religious request not to touch his female classmates.

“I felt degraded, discriminated against, I felt like a woman in the 1950s,” said Sonja Power, 17, a former student at Halifax’s East Coast Yoshinkan Aikido, a school operated out of the city’s Lakeside Community Centre. “We wouldn’t allow someone using their religion to discriminate against someone’s race, so why would they use it to discriminate against somebody’s gender?”

Ms. Power, a resident of the Halifax suburb of Upper Tantallon, NS, had been a student at East Coast Yoshinkan since the age of six.

In the spring of 2012, Ms. Power, then 15, was just on the verge of earning her aikido black belt when she said a man enrolled at the school and told its owner that, for reasons of his Islamic faith, he was not allowed physical contact with women.

The request would not have been noticed in a pottery class or a fencing course, but Aikido — like any martial art — is uniquely physical. The ultimate effect, said Ms. Power, was that sessions were suddenly being divvied up by sex.

The school’s sensei (teacher), “would put all the women on one side and then offer a side for the Muslim man so there wouldn’t be any problems,” she said.

And when it came time for the customary end-of-class handshakes, “he would shake hands with all the other men in the dojo, but he wouldn’t even come over and look at the women … he just ignored us,” said Ms. Power.

The man also refused to bow, apparently telling the dojo’s sensei that he only bowed to Allah. Bowing is a big part of the Japanese martial art, and aikido students are expected to regularly bow to classmates, the sensei and the front wall of the dojo, which is traditionally adorned with portraits of aikido’s pioneers.

‘I felt like a woman in the 1950s’
Along with her mother, Ms. Power said she approached the sensei with her concerns about the new environment, but was told that it was the student’s religious right. “[The sensei] told us to get used to it,” said Michele Walsh, Ms. Power’ mother.

Aiming to complete her training, Ms. Power nevertheless stayed in the school for another five months, but said her breaking point came when the male student began distributing religious literature.

In July of 2012, said Ms. Power, the student handed out copies of Islam; From darkness to light a booklet written by Toronto-based Islamic author Suhail Kapoor.

Several passages stuck out for the 15-year-old. “[When] a woman chooses to show her body in one form or another, the message is only one: she wants attention and possibly much more,” it reads. The booklet also authorizes husbands to administer a “light strike” to their wives in cases of “serious moral misconduct.”

“I couldn’t go to the same dojo with someone who thinks that way,” said Ms. Power.

“I thought why would someone’s religion — something that they choose to follow — trump my gender, which is something that I was born with?”

Steve Nickerson, a fifth degree black belt and the owner and sensei of East Coast Yoshinkan Aikido, wrote in an email to the National Post that although he met the student’s request to avoid physical contact with women, the student “interacted, without physical contact, with women in my classes each week as part of our regular program.”

As for the bowing, Mr. Nickerson said the request was made respectfully and was “very easy to accommodate.”

“I believe every person should have an equal opportunity to participate in recreational activities and I would not deny this student access to my classes,” he wrote, noting that he made the accommodation with the confidence that it would not be “disadvantaging any other person’s participation in my classes.”

The decision, he said, was supported by both the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and the Halifax Recreation Administration, which operates Lakeside Community Centre.

Both informed him that the steps he took were “prudent, lawful and correct,” wrote Mr. Nickerson.

Lisa Teryl, a lawyer for the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission, was unable to comment on the aikido case specifically, but acknowledged the stickiness of weighing the “competing rights” of gender equity versus religious beliefs.

“In the fabric of Canadian society, [gender segregation] isn’t something that, in a secular sense, we support … we generally see it as a bad thing,” she said.

‘Why would someone’s religion — something that they choose to follow — trump my gender, which is something that I was born with?
At the same time, she said, the law requires reasonable accommodation of religious views, which are generally given much higher consideration than mere matters of personal preference.

“If it doesn’t cost us to the point of undue hardship, then we need to try to … support them, and not have them feel persecuted for their deeply-held belief,” she said.

The Halifax Regional Municipality, operators of Lakeside Community Centre, similarly acknowledged a tricky gray area in cases of competing rights.

“[Sometimes] the exercise of human rights by some individuals can come into conflict with human rights entitlements of others,” wrote Halifax recreational coordinator Peter Jollimore to the National Post, adding that “often, such conflicts can be resolved by simple dialogue between the affected parties.”

Amir Hussain is a theology professor at Los Angeles’ Loyola Marymount University and wrote his thesis on Toronto Muslim communities.

Speaking to the National Post, he called the student’s requests an unusual interpretation of mainstream North American Islam, but said “it could well be that this person feels that this is what their religion is demanding.”

Said Mr. Hussain, “in Islam, you’re supposed to respect your teachers. You’re not supposed to bow down to other gods, but the sensei isn’t your god.”
