Other crimes include kidnapping, torture, rape, smuggling arms and bombs into the Kingdom, targeting government personnel and vital economic sites, killing law enforcement officers and maiming their bodies, and planting land mines to target police vehicles.

The accused were provided with the right to an attorney and were guaranteed their full rights under Saudi law during the judicial process, which found them guilty of committing multiple heinous crimes that left many civilians and law enforcement officers dead.

The Brunei Islamic Film Festival kicked off with a symposium titled ‘Islamic Film Genre: Questions, Possibilities and Implications for the Bruneian Screen Industry’ at Yayasan Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Complex yesterday.

Yang Amat Mulia Pengiran Anak Hajah Nurul Amal Munjiatul Athirah binti Pengiran Sura Negara Pengiran Anak Haji Muhammad Bey Muntassir was the guest of honour.

Symposium participants comprised individuals from higher learning institutions including Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA), Mahakarya Institute of the Arts Asia (MIAA) and Kolej International Graduate Studies (KIGS) as well as filmmakers and officials from production houses and government agencies.

Festival Director Siti Kamaluddin opened the symposium with a speech describing her excitement over the Sultanate’s first-ever film festival dedicated to Islamic content.

“In 2019, we introduced the Islamic film competitive category as part of the annual Brunei Film Blitz, and the category has since grown. But this year, it has become its own festival,” she said.

Being a firm believer in the importance of education, research and study, Siti Kamaluddin said, “This is why the festival is starting with a symposium, which will allow participants to explore the concept of film genre, and what it means to have an Islamic Bruneian screen identity.”

Matters pertaining to Islamic etiquette, halal food preparation, Islamic financing and insurance were discussed in greater detail to ensure filmmakers delve into these details when producing Islamic content.

The symposium ended with a filmmaking workshop allowing participants to put into practice what had been discussed at the symposium. Participants were assigned filmmaking exercises on ideation, cinematography, sound recording and editing.

Intensive individual mentorships will be made available for participants over the next two weeks while they produce Islamic short films to be screened on March 30.

Acting Foreign Minister of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Urges World Community To Contribute To Stable, Self-Reliant Afghanistan

 

Acting Foreign Minister of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Amir Khan Muttaqi

By Najibullah Lalzoy

12 Mar 2022

Acting Foreign Minister of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Amir Khan Muttaqi asked the International Community to do their part in building a stable and self-reliant Afghanistan as an unstable and weak Afghanistan avail no one.

Amir Khan Muttaqi insisted that Afghanistan does not intend to be a country for conflicts of superpowers of the world.

Speaking at Antalya’s Diplomatic Forum in Turkey on Saturday, March 12, 2022, the acting Minister said that the US along with its allies could not defeat ISIS-K in Afghanistan but the Taliban uprooted the terror group from the country.

He attacked the current definition of diplomacy claiming to be used for waging and intensifying wars across the world. Muttaqi said the definition should be looked at honestly so that it be used for the prevention of wars and conflicts.

“Many opportunities have been created in Afghanistan. Afghanistan has the potential to be a connecting and transit spot between central and south Asian countries. We ask participants of the Diplomatic Forum to assist Afghanistan in getting its assets unfrozen and economic sanctions lifted.” Muttaqi said.

The acting FM further added that Afghanistan has no political asylum seeker and all who have left Afghanistan is owing to economic issues. Amir khan Muttaqi said all Afghans in exile will return to the country once the country’s economy gets going.

The king rose early on the biggest day for his people in years. By 9am the walled centre of the village was abuzz with the chatter of thousands who had come from the hills around.

The celebrations that greeted the king were the first of their kind in nearly a decade. For much of that time the people of Sukur, a little-known, Unesco-listed kingdom 3,000 feet up in the highlands of northeast Nigeria, lived in fear. Their unique culture, with its own language, calendar and distinctive dry stone walls, was under threat from Boko Haram, the Islamist group that has terrorised the region since 2009. In 2014 militants climbed the steep track to the settlement, razing houses and burning crops. People scattered, abandoning the terraced

‘Quality of human assets is important than hardware’

By Guardian Nigeria

13 March 2022

IN any war, one major tactic is to exploit your adversaries’ weakness. Our monopoly of controlling the air space gives us a fighting leverage and advantage in the skies.

However, it may be inaccurate for us to conclude that air assets are now more important that land or sea assets. The fight is dynamic and all the services are building capacity not just for the present events but to protect Nigeria’s territory in the immediate-to-long term.

Karnataka Man Attacks Wife 23 Times With Weapon, Right-wing Groups Call it Case of 'Love-Jihad'

MARCH 12, 2022

Aman from Karnataka’s Gadag brutally attacked his wife and left her battling for life in a hospital, days before their divorce petition hearing was to come up in a court.

Police said that the inter-religious marriage of the couple had hit a rough patch when Apoorva Puranik alias Arfa Bano had learnt about the first marriage of her husband Ijiaz.

Apoorva, who was studying MBA in Hubli, fell in love with Ijaz who was an auto driver in the area where she lived. The couple got married in 2018, despite opposition from the girl’s family. Apoorva changed her name to Arfa Bano after the wedding. The couple has a two-year-old child.

Around six months ago, Apoorva learnt about Ijaz’s first marriage. According to police, this led to several heated arguments between the two. Heartbroken, Apoorva applied for a divorce and the petition was to come up for a hearing on Friday. But the estranged husband attacked Apoorva on Wednesday in Gadag, assaulted her 23 times with a lethal weapon. She is now battling for her life at KIMS hospital in Hubli. The police have arrested Ijaz.

Apoorva’s mother Ashwin said her daughter was studying in Hubli and when she and Ijaz got their marriage registered. “He would assault her often. We opposed the marriage but thought they will live happily. We didn’t know about his first marriage. When she got to know, she filed for a divorce. He had converted our daughter before marriage and changed her name to Arfa. He wanted her to not ask for a divorce, he would ask her to live the way he wanted," said.

Meanwhile several right-wing groups and chief of Sri Ram Sene, Pramod Muthalik, have called it a case of Love-Jihad. “This is the latest example of Love-Jihad. Marrying innocent Hindu women and then torturing or converting them is happening everywhere. We welcome the prompt action of the police to arrest him. But they have booked him under not so stringent sections. If he comes out of jail, we will thrash him. We demand stringent sections to be slapped against the culprit,” Muthalik said.

ISLAMABAD: The delay in decision-making by the four smaller but key coalition partners of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on the issue of a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan is not only prolonging the prevailing political uncertainty in the country, but it has also started to unnerve the government.

And it all became evident on Saturday when Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed alleged that the Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) was “blackmailing” the government in return for support during the opposition’s no-trust move.
