Kashmiri Seminary scholar demands stern action to crush Takfiri terrorists, pays tribute to martyrs of Peshawar and expresses condolences to their families.

Expressing his anger and sorrow over the heinous terror suicide attack at the Jamia Masjid Imamia Peshawar Pakistan, J&K`s young Iran based Islamic scholar Waseem Reza Kashmiri strongly condemned the action and said that those who turn places of worship into Slaughterhouse are open enemies of Islam and humanity. The time has come to take stern action to crush the Takfiri terrorists who are inciting hatred by massacring innocent people all over the world.

In a statement issued here, prominent Islamic Seminary Scholar of Al-Mustafa(Pbuh) International University Iran said terrorists have bloodied humanity by targeting innocent worshipers. Mosques, Imam Barga`s, shrines and places of worship of other religions have been targeted in Pakistan for a long time and the failure of the government and security agencies to provide security to the people and to take a soft line against terrorists raises many questions.

He said that the tragedy in Peshawar deserve wide condemnation and immediate legal action should be taken against the organizations promoting terrorism and takfirism.

The Seminary from Jammu and Kashmir prayed for the high status of the martyrs of Peshawar and expressed sympathies with victim families.

Thousands of people protested here on Saturday against the bombing of a Shia mosque in Pakistan that left 62 worshippers dead and nearly 200 others injured the previous day.

A suicide bomber, belonging to the ISIS-Khorasan, blew himself up inside a mosque in Qissa Khwani bazaar in Peshawar, capital of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province on Friday, in one of the deadliest attacks in the restive region, bordering Afghanistan.

Chanting slogans against Pakistan for its failure to protect the minorities in the country, the protesters marched through the Shia dominated main town and later staged a sit-in.

Meanwhile, Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC), Kargil also denounced the attack on the unarmed devotees and requested the Indian government and world community to exert pressure on the Pakistani government to bring the culprits to the...

“Such barbaric acts are against the very basic tenets of humanity. LAHDC Kargil joins the world community in denouncing the dastardly attack upon unarmed worshippers,” the chairman and chief executive council, Kargil, Feroz Ahmad Khan, said.

“We request the government of India and the world community to exert pressure on the government of Pakistan to bring to book the culprits behind yesterday's reprehensible attack,” Khan said.

Govt Asked Not To ‘Condone’ Russia’s Military Intervention In Ukraine

KARACHI: A seasoned former diplomat on Saturday advised the government not to condone the Russian military intervention in Ukraine, while others called upon Islamabad to take a leaf out of Beijing’s playbook and condemn ‘both sides’ in equal measure.

“Russia may have been provoked but we should not condone the military intervention in Ukraine,” said Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, who is now at the Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad.

During a discussion on ‘Pakistan’s Foreign Policy: Challenges In Transitional Era’, speakers at the 13th Karachi Literature Festival (KLF) urged the Pakistani government not to condone Russia’s ‘military intervention’ in Ukraine and asked them to learn a lesson or two from close ally China that had condemned the US for provoking and allegedly overlooking security concerns of Moscow. But at the same time, they recalled, Beijing had — in a way — criticised the invasion of Kyiv by saying that the ‘sovereignty of Ukraine should be respected’.

Talking about two schools of thought in foreign policy pertaining to ‘morality and realistic’, Mr Chaudhry observed undermining sovereignty and territorial integrity of any country could not be condoned. He recalled that it was due to this reason that Pakistan had condemned the regime change policy of Washington in Syria because it impinged on sovereignty of Damascus.

“We should not support any illegal action against any country,” said senior journalist and author, Zahid Hussain. He suggested it was important for Pakistan to look into the position that China had taken about the Ukraine invasion.

Another former envoy and anchor, Zafar Hilaly recalled the US broke the promise it made with last ruler of Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev for not expanding Nato but it had expanded Nato more than double.

Earlier, the former envoy said ‘unilateralism, violation of UN charter/global norms, competition among global powers like the US, Russia and China, trade protectionism and treating immigrants as threats to security and economy’ were some of the aspects of transitional global politics.

In another programme, titled ‘Security Conundrum: Internal and External’, Dr Haider Nizamani who teaches at IBA Karachi said the much-talked recent national security policy appeared to be ‘an advance course on human security’ as it did not tell us as to how to move away from geostrategic to geo-economic.

He opined that this shift on human security would not be possible unless the India factor was addressed and the said policy stressed that ‘normal ties’ with New Delhi would be possible only when the Kashmir dispute was addressed. He also criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan’s recent claim that he knew India better merely because he had been visiting it as cricket player in the past.

Ms Salma Malik, who teaches at the Department of Defence and Strategic Studies, Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad, called for adopting careful policy for taking sides in wake of evolving of rivalry between the US, Russia and China, ‘as environment is different and actors are different today.’

Muslim League to stay in UDF, says present situation doesn’t warrant rethink

06th March 2022

By Express News Service

KOZHIKODE:  The Indian Union Muslim League dismissed reports on its “likely” switch to the Left front as rumours, saying present situation does not warrant a rethink on its political stand. “As far as we are concerned, it is not the time to think of any other political line,” said IUML acting state general secretary PMA Salam. He said the League was an integral part of the UDF.

Salam was reacting to a volley of questions at a news conference on whether the party was thinking of any alternative other than the UDF. Such rumours were rife, especially after LDF MLA K T Jaleel held a meeting with Muslim League leader P K Kunhalikutty. “How can we know that what Jaleel said was the CPM line,” asked Salam, adding the party does not think the CPM had extended a welcome to join the LDF.

Russia obstructs Iran nuclear deal as the Kremlin frets over its oil income

BY STEPHANIE LIECHTENSTEIN

March 5, 2022

VIENNA — Moscow is throwing up last-minute demands that could scupper an international nuclear deal with Iran — and the timing is unlikely to be coincidental as the Kremlin frets about the growing threat to its critical oil revenue after its invasion of Ukraine.

Hopes had been high that international negotiators from the permanent five members of the U.N. Security Council, Germany and the EU would be able to secure a deal with Tehran on Saturday to put strict limits on Iran’s atomic work in exchange for sanctions relief for the Islamic Republic.

Bangladesh could be prime choice for Indian medical students returning from Ukraine

Star Digital Report

Mar 6, 2022

Bangladesh is among countries that could emerge as the venues of choice for Indian medical students -- forced out of their studies in Ukraine following Russian invasion.

However, the enthusiasm for neighbouring countries among Indian MBBS students, who returned home from Ukraine, needs to be tamped down as India's National Medical Commission (NMC) has already said that Indian medical graduates with incomplete internships due to situations beyond their control like Covid-19 or war can finish the same in India.

PTI allies will get ‘an offer they can’t refuse’

March 6, 2022

LAHORE: The opposition parties seem to be struggling to achieve the required numbers to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan, as the nine-party alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and the PPP on Saturday agreed to accelerate their efforts to negotiate with the ruling party’s allies on more ‘solid terms’ before announcing a date for tabling the no-confidence motion.

While some elements in the opposition camp, especially within the PML-N, want the motion to be tabled in parliament without the allies since they believe they have the required number of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) MNAs on their side, the top leadership of PML-N, PPP and JUI-F agreed to galvanise the support of the government allies, especially the Chaudhrys of Gujrat, for its plan. Consequently, the PDM is going to offer them a better package.

Johor polls: Can Dr Mahathir’s presence spell success for Pejuang?

05 Mar 2022

JOHOR BARU, March 5 – After only penning open letters to voters, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad went to Kluang on Thursday to help the Parti Pejuang Tanah Air’s (Pejuang) campaign in the Johor state election, despite being advised by doctors about risks to his health due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

At the age of 97, the Pejuang chairman, who just recovered from a serious illness, accompanied by his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali, attended a lunch function with the Chinese Business and Industry Association in Batu Pahat on Thursday, before joing the party’s Aspirasi Johor programme in Felda Ayer Hitam the same day.

Ukraine Crisis, Expectedly, Caused Free Fall Of Trust In US: Analysts

March 6, 2022

When Donald Trump in the election competition of 2016 talked about decline of the US power and image globally, capitalism's media outlets dismissed his remarks as invalid and unjustified. But few in the American political arena can deny this fact presently. Now more than ever Trump and new right's view about the US fall as a hegemonic power looks more acceptable.

Undoubtedly, Trump was right to say no one on the world stage is counting on the US and the promises of its president anymore. He was also well aware that, unlike in the past, European allies as well as US rivals in the world system do not trust or fear the country.

CAIR-LA, Partners Welcome ‘Partial Victory’ in FBI v. Fazaga After SCOTUS Rules Muslim Plaintiffs Can Still Pursue Religious Discrimination Claims

Ibrahim Hooper

March 5, 2022

(LOS ANGELES, CA – 3/4/2022) – The Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA), the ACLU, and UCLA’s Center for Immigration Law Policy today held a press conference in response to the Supreme Court’s decision regarding Muslim surveillance case FBI v. Fazaga. 

Today, in a unanimous decision, SCOTUS refused to endorse the federal government’s attempt to win dismissal of the religious discrimination claims presented by Sheikh Fazaga, Ali Malik, and Yasser AbdelRahim. Although the Supreme Court reversed the Ninth Circuit’s ruling that those claims should be governed by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), the Supreme Court sent the case back for the Ninth Circuit to decide how the case will proceed. Its decision explicitly leaves open several paths to victory for Americans who practice the Muslim faith and have suffered unconstitutional surveillance because of their religion.

Gun ranges or mosques; weaponized zoning laws are unconstitutional

By Ranjit Singh

Mar 05, 2022

Using zoning laws and local regulations to push out gun ranges and stores is an old tactic of the Gun Grab Lobby. There are barely two gun stores in New York, a city of 8.8 million; its oldest gun store closed in 2020. The West Coast isn’t better; San Francisco lost its last gun shop in 2015.

Last year, in a big ruling in Drummond v Robinson Township, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, using heightened scrutiny, ruled in favor of the operator of a gun club that was put out of business by a local government using weaponized zoning. Unfortunately, my hope that it would teach a lesson to meddlesome local government officials has been short-lived.
