Chief Justice of Pakistan to Celebrate Diwali at Teri Temple In Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa To Express Solidarity With The Hindu Community

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Gulzar Ahmad will celebrate the Diwali festival at Teri Temple, Karak, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, on Monday, to express solidarity with the local members of the Hindu community as well pilgrims reaching there from other parts of the country.

The grand function to celebrate Diwali is being organised by the Pakistan Hindu Council, which invited the chief justice and other dignitaries to take part in the celebrations.

PHC patron-in-chief and member of the National Assembly Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani said presence of senior officials during the celebration would give a strong message to the miscreants that their nefarious designs would be foiled by the state.

To provide facilities to those arriving from Sindh and Balochistan to participate in the annual fair at Teri, the Hindu council has also requested the Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) to provide boarding and lodging facilities to around 1,500 pilgrims at Hassanabdal.

The pilgrims have already started arriving at Hassanabdal, from where they will proceed to the Teri area of Karak on Monday and return the same day.

The shrine is associated to a saint, Shri Param Hans Ji Maharaj, in Karak district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa where a temple was established in 1920. However, it was vandalised by a mob led by a local cleric belonging to the Jamiat Ulema Islam-Fazl last year.

Later on the orders of the Chief Justice of Pakistan, not only the temple/shrine was restored to its original condition by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government, but the apex court also ordered the KP government in October 2021 to recover Rs33 million from the culprits involved in vandalising and destruction of the century-old Samadhi.

On Dec 30, 2020, more than 1,000 people led by some local clerics belonging to the JUI-F instigated the villagers to demolish the temple as a result people led by local seminary students attacked the temple.

Subsequently, the Supreme Court took suo motu notice of the incident and during the proceedings the court was informed by then KP police chief Sanaullah Abbasi that a local leader of the JUI-F, Maulana Faizullah, had organised the protest near the shrine but of the six religious leaders present at the protest site, only Maulvi Sharif had incited the crowd to desecrate the temple.

Earlier in 1997, the Samadhi was first attacked and severely damaged, and the PHC head Dr Vankwani had approached the apex court in 2015 seeking help to restore the holy place and restart the annual pilgrimage to the place.

“At that time, local clerics were creating hurdles to holding of religious congregation for the Hindus, while the followers of Shri Paramhans Ji tried to build the temple at the place but it was not allowed,” Dr Vankwani had told Dawn.

The SC had issued directives to the provincial government to restore and preserve the Teri temple at that time, too. Finally, Pakistan Hindu Council started holding the annual fair in 2015.

Since the temple/shrine was being managed by the local Hindu families, it comes administratively under the KP government and not under the ETPB control.

President Of The UAE Introduces A Law To Regulate Personal Status For Non-Muslims In The Emirate of Abu Dhabi

Sun 7 Nov 2021

His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE in his capacity as ruler of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi on Sunday issued a law to regulate personal status for non-Muslims in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

The aim is to provide a flexible and advanced judicial mechanism for the determination of personal status disputes for non-Muslims.

The move will further enhance the Emirate's position and global competitiveness as one of the most attractive destinations for talent and skills.

The law also intends to confirm Abu Dhabi’s leadership by issuing the first civil law governing non-Muslim family matters in line with international best practices. This guarantees the right of non-Muslims to be subject to an internationally acknowledged law that is familiar to them in terms of culture, customs and language, as well as to achieve and protect the best interests of children, particularly in the case of parental separation.

Youssef Saeed Al Abri, Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), noted that the new legislation is the first of its kind in the world as it deals with the smallest details regarding non-Muslim family life.

He added that the Judicial Department has been working according to the direction of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department, in order to provide solutions to non-Muslims’ personal status issues that are brought before the courts.

The law was thoroughly studied and analysed to come up with a legislative solution that provide a modern judicial framework for foreigners residing in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to resolve family disputes in line with international best practices.

The official also announced that the AD Judicial Department has established the first court dedicated to non-Muslim family matters.

All the procedures of the new court will be bilingual in Arabic and English in order to facilitate the understanding of judicial procedures by foreigners and to improve judicial transparency.

The new law consists of 20 articles divided into several chapters covering civil marriage, divorce, joint custody of children and inheritance.

The first chapter of the law regulates the marriage procedures of foreigners before the court by introducing the concept of civil marriage based on the will of both the husband and wife.

The second chapter defines the divorce procedures for non-Muslims, the rights of the spouses after divorce and the discretion of the judge in assessing the financial rights of the wife based on several criteria, such as the number of years of marriage, the age of the wife, the economic standing of each of the spouses and other considerations that the judge takes into account in determining the wife's financial rights.

The third chapter introduces a new concept in post-divorce child custody, namely, the sharing of custody equally between the father and mother, or what is known in in some Western countries as joint or shared custody, in order to safeguard the cohesion of the family after divorce and to preserve the psychological health of the children.

The fourth chapter addresses inheritance issues, the registration of wills for non-Muslims, and the right of a foreigner to draw up a will devolving all his/her property to whomever he/she wishes.

The fifth chapter of the law regulates the proof of paternity for non-Muslim foreigners, providing that the proof of paternity of the newborn child is based on marriage or recognition of paternity.

Twenty-five Daesh Members Surrender To Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in Nangarhar

25 Daesh affiliates surrendered to the Islamic Emirate through the mediation of tribal elders in the eastern province of Nangarhar, provincial officials said on Saturday. 

The head of the Nangarhar intelligence department, Dr. Basheer, said that these Daesh fighters were active in various parts of the province. 

The surrendered Daesh fighters were granted amnesty by the order of Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada, the supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate. 

“Today 25 members of Daesh surrendered to the Islamic Emirate,” Dr. Basheer said. “In total 250 Daesh affiliates surrendered to the Islamic Emirate in over the past two months. They have been pardoned and they don’t fight against us anymore. If they act against their commitments, they will be punished.” 

“We took an oath from the surrendered Daesh members that they will not carry out destructive actions. If they try to bother the people and create insecurity or fight against the Islamic Emirate, their houses will be set on fire and they will be kicked out of the country,” said Nasir Momand, a tribal elder. 

“We were previously carrying out actions against the Taliban but now the Islamic Emirate give us amnesty and we came and surrendered to them. We regret our actions that we performed in the past,” said Ziauddin, a surrendered member of Daesh.  

Daesh has claimed responsibility for several attacks in Nangarhar. However, the Islamic Emirate downplays the threat of Daesh in Afghanistan.

Singapore Can Be A Case Study For Racial And Religious Harmony For Muslim Minority Communities: Minister-In-Charge Of Muslim Affairs

Hariz Baharudin

NOV 6, 2021

SINGAPORE - Singapore can be a case study for racial and religious harmony given that it is one of the world's most religiously diverse societies, and its citizens have all pledged to be one united people, said Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs Masagos Zulkifli.

He made this point on Saturday (Nov 6) as he emphasised the need to develop a body of knowledge - amid chaotic developments round the world - for Muslim minority communities within multicultural and secular societies.

Mr Masagos, who is also Minister for Social and Family Development, was speaking at a virtual seminar on Muslim communities that was attended by Singaporeans and foreigners. It was organised by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore.

Many Muslim minority communities live in open, modern and diverse societies in secular states, noted Mr Masagos. In Singapore, Muslims make up about 15.6 per cent of the population.

Emerging uncertainties and challenges of the contemporary world usually impact these Muslim communities first, and often, there is no precedence in Islamic history and traditions to guide them, said Mr Masagos.

"Their experience will be distinctly different from societies where Muslims are the majority. These Muslim minority communities must have the ability to contribute to nation-building while being able to live out their faith, like Muslims do in Singapore," he said.

Singapore's Constitution forms the foundation for its social compact, and Mr Masagos sketched out three pillars that allow the country to enjoy peace and stability.

First, there is justice and equality, and this guarantees that the Government will be impartial to all, enabling people through the building of strong families and creating a society of opportunities through affordable and quality education, housing and healthcare.

The second pillar is self-reliance, where individuals have a duty to take care of themselves. "This helps to engender trust between individuals in society because 'from each his best' and 'to each his due' would be for the common good," said Mr Masagos.

Third, Singapore is a cohesive and harmonious society, where it is important to engender trust between majority and minority communities by building respect, care and concern for fellow citizens.

But while the country has been fortunate to have racial and religious harmony over the years, this is neither a given nor permanent, and Mr Masagos called on all groups in society to continue working to uphold this.

Under the Maintenance of Religious Harmony Act, those who cause ill-will between different religious groups can be issued with a restraining order.

During his National Day Rally speech in August, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said while the law has never been used since it came into effect in 1992, its existence has helped to restrain intolerance and promote religious harmony.

PM Lee also said during the speech that Singapore would be introducing a new law on racial harmony to encourage moderation and tolerance between different racial groups.

Mr Masagos on Saturday acknowledged that in the past, Singapore’s focus was directed internally, and was more on how its people can accommodate one another and not overly push for their own rights - but added that today's environment is different.

In societies, youth, in particular, are more exposed to information shared on social media, which challenges the transmission of values and widens fractures in societies.

Singapore experienced its first case of right-wing extremism, when a 16-year-old Singaporean boy was detained last December after planning to attack Muslims in mosques. He was inspired by terrorist attacks overseas that he had observed online.

Mr Masagos gave the examples of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as issues that he said have shaped views and could affect relations with others within a multi-ethnic and multi-religious community.

"If we do not address this early, and effectively, it will slowly and silently erode the trust built over many generations," he added.

"This is why religious harmony and social cohesion must be continuously strengthened and never taken for granted."

A spokesperson for the political wing of an Iraqi Shia militia says the alleged assassination attempt on Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi could have been staged to distract from the reported deaths of election protesters.

Sindh governor hints at making ‘federal’ JIT in Jokhio murder case

Imran Ayub

November 7, 2021

KARACHI: A crisis has developed for the Sindh government of Pakistan Peoples Party after a sitting MPA allegedly killed a young man who made a video of some foreigners hunting houbara bustard, as an autopsy report confirmed on Saturday ‘severe torture’ as the cause of the victim’s death while the prime minister also took notice of the incident.

Mounting pressure on the provincial government, the federal government of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf expressed the resolve that justice would be provided to the victim’s family as Prime Minister Imran Khan took a direct interest in the matter.

The autopsy report and the PM’s notice of the incident made the matter more concerning for the provincial government as PPP lawmaker Jam Awais, who was booked for the murder of young Nazim Jokhio, was remanded in police custody for three days on Friday after he surrendered before law enforcers.

November 6, 2021

In an online zoom briefing conducted on Thursday by 16 organisations which include the Indian American Muslim Council, experts have raised concerns about the role Facebook plays in encouraging Hindu supremacists to perpetuate hate crimes against Muslims, and other oppressed groups in the country.

Less than a month ago, whistle-blower Frances Haugen had revealed in her testimony to United States officials the direct role Facebook played in pushing anti-Muslim narratives and it was only “political considerations” which prevented the media giant from taking action against hateful posts.

Iran-proposed Nuclear disarmament resolution test for claims of UN member states

News Code : 1196203

November 7, 2021

Since the end of the Cold War, the number of nuclear weapons in the world has dropped dramatically to 15,000 warheads, according to the latest estimates, but given the fact that the explosive and qualitative power of new nuclear weapons is thousands of times greater than that of old nuclear weapons, the danger of the existing weapons to human life and the planet is no less – if not greater – than that of the old weapons in question.

Under the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, all Nuclear Weapon States have the obligation to destroy all their nuclear weapons. In addition, they are legally obliged not only to refrain from taking any action to manufacture nuclear weapons, but to refrain from transferring such weapons to other countries, deploying them outside their territory, and cooperating with other governments to build atomic weapons.

By Kelsey Dallas

Nov 6, 2021

Ali Uddin Malik welcomed Craig Monteilh into his congregation with open arms in 2006. As a Muslim, he felt a sacred duty to help the man, who claimed to be a recent convert, understand their shared faith.

Over the course of several months, the pair met often to pray and talk. There was just one problem: Monteilh was obsessed with jihad.

JK Randle on Harmony Between Yoruba Christians and Muslims

November 7, 2021

After the collapse of the 21-storey Ikoyi building on Monday 1 November 2021, Dr. Farooq Perogi, a US-based academic, wrote an article that has somewhat set the Internet on fire. He chose an isolated case of a man who claimed he was not offered a job on the site because of his Muslim faith to conclude that Yoruba Christians discriminate against the Muslims of the same ethnic stock.

In the article below which shows the harmony between Christians and Muslims in Yorubaland, Bashorun J.K Randle, a Christian, served as executor of his late Muslim aunt’s will to hand over her house to Lagos Central mosque. He seized the opportunity of the ceremony to praise religious tolerance in Lagos/Yorubaland.
