Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan Chief Saad Rizvi's Name Removed From List of People Suspected Of Terrorism

November 11, 2021

The Punjab government on Wednesday removed Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Hafiz Saad Hussain Rizvi's name from the Fourth Schedule — a list of proscribed individuals who are suspected of terrorism or sectarianism under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), 1997.

A notification issued by the Punjab Home Department dated November 10 stated that the "name of Hafiz Mohammad Saad, being Ameer of Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan, a proscribed organisation, was listed in the 4th Schedule of Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997, under Section 11-E on the recommendations of District Intelligence Committee, Lahore."

"Therefore, name of Hafiz Mohammad Saad is hereby deleted from the list of 4th Schedule of Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997, with immediate effect," it stated.

Police had arrested Rizvi on April 12 this year ahead of planned protests by the TLP. The next day, police registered a first information report (FIR) against the TLP chief under sections of the ATA.

The government had declared the TLP a proscribed outfit under the anti-terror law in April this year, after three days of violent protests by the group's activists across the country.

The matter of TLP's de-proscription again came under consideration following another days-long protest by the TLP, which started on Oct 20 in Lahore. The protest, which soon turned violent, was primarily launched to exert pressure on the Punjab government for the release of TLP chief Saad Rizvi, the son of its late founder Khadim Rizvi, and the expulsion of the French ambassador over blasphemous sketches of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The situation seemed to improve only after negotiations between the TLP and government started on Oct 30, with the members of the negotiating team from the government side claiming the next day that they had reached an "agreement" with the proscribed group but refused to divulge its details.

Sources had told Dawn the TLP was assured that the government would not pursue minor cases against the TLP leadership and workers, but the cases registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act would be decided by courts. It also assured the TLP leadership that it would unfreeze the accounts and assets of the proscribed outfit and take steps to lift the ban on it.

While some 2,100 TLP activists have been released from police custody after the federal government-TLP agreement, the revocation of the group's proscribed status automatically removed around 8,000 TLP activists from the Fourth Schedule.

Meanwhile, the government transferred the entire police high command of Lahore earlier this month in a massive reshuffle in the wake of their "mishandling of the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan's violent rally".

Ed Durr, a Republican, Meets Muslim Leaders to Apologize For Calling Prophet Muhammad A 'Paedophile in a 2019 Tweet'

11 November 2021

A New Jersey trucker who shot to a shock victory in the state's senatorial elections has told of his shock at winning, as he met with Muslim leaders to apologize for a 2019 tweet calling the Prophet Mohammed a 'paedophile.' 

Ed Durr, 58, who claimed to have spent less than $200 on a campaign that ousted one of the most powerful political figures in New Jersey politics, spoke to reporters after Democrat favourite and incumbent Steve Sweeney conceded the race on Wednesday.

Durr, who is a Republican, said, 'I feel like I'm about to throw up. This is all new to me. It's all overwhelming, but I am very happy that the voters selected me. I'm going to earn that vote and I'm going to prove them right.'

Even before being sworn in, however, Durr had some explaining to do over a series of inflammatory social media posts, specifically one from 2019 that read, 'Mohammed [sic] was a paedophile! Islam is a false religion! Only fools follow Muslim teachings! It is a cult of hate!'

Taliban Accused Of 'Wiping Out' History By Replacing Statue Of Hazara Martyr With Quran; Bamiyan Residents Warned - A Move That Could Trigger Violence

11 November, 2021

The Taliban have replaced the statue of a Hazara leader declared a national martyr by the former government with a replica of the Quran, Bamiyan residents said on Thursday - a move they warned could trigger violence.

The original statue depicted Abdul Ali Mazari, a leader of the mostly Shia minority killed while he was a prisoner of the Taliban during their first stint in power.

The statue was decapitated by a rocket-propelled grenade soon after the Taliban returned to power in August, in an incident residents of the city in central Afghanistan blamed on the hardline Islamists.

The Taliban's strict interpretation of Islam forbids the human form to be depicted in paintings and sculpture - and printed photographs in extreme cases.

"Yesterday, they completely removed the statue and replaced it with a replica of the Quran," said Abdul Danishyar, a civil society activist in Bamiyan.

Mazari's statue stood in Bamiyan's central square, where the Taliban blew up two massive 1,500-year-old statues of Buddha in 2001 - just before the US invasion that ousted them.

Abdul Ali Shafaq, a Bamiyan provincial council member, told AFP he would talk to Taliban officials and urge them to reverse the move.

The mainly Shia Hazara community, which makes up about 10 per cent of Afghanistan's nearly 38 million people, has long been persecuted by Sunni extremists, such as the Islamic State group, in a country torn by ethnic and religious divisions.

Lower Sex-Selective Abortion Rates in Districts with Muslim Legislators: Kent, Warwick and Notre Dame Research

 

(Representational Photo/Eurasia Review)

------

By Eurasia Review

November 12, 2021

New research by the universities of Kent, Warwick and Notre Dame (United States) has found that sex-selective abortion is lower in India districts with a Muslim state legislator, consistent with a higher reported aversion to abortion among Muslims compared to Hindus.

Sex-selective abortion has dramatically increased in India in recent decades. Abortion was legalised in India in 1971 and while safe abortion is viewed as a woman’s right, illegal abortion is still easily accessible with procedures and facilities deemed unsafe.

Published by the Journal of Development Economics, the study discovered a rise in fertility under Muslim legislators in India, suggesting a substitution from sex-selective abortion to greater fertility as a means of achieving the desired gender mix of children.

The sex ratio at birth in India has grown more male-biased since the mid to late 1980s despite rapid increases in income, improvements in women’s education, a decline in stated son preference, and the implementation of a ban on prenatal sex determination in 1996. According to the research, Muslims have similar levels of son preference. However, because Muslims have stronger (stated) preferences against abortion than Hindus, Muslim legislators, acting on their preferences, are more effective at reducing abortion than Hindus.

Professor Irma Clots-Figueras (Kent’s School of Economics), Professor Sonia Bhalotra (Warwick’s Department of Economics and Associate Professor of Economics and Global Affairs Lakshmi Iyer (University of Notre Dame) led the research using nationwide survey data on the retrospective fertility histories of more than 450,000 women with more than 860,000 births over three decades.

Professor Clots-Figueras said: ‘Our research shows that Muslim legislators are more effective at controlling the selective abortion of girls in India. Previous studies have not established a causal link between politician preferences and abortion outcomes, yet our findings suggest that the personal identity of legislators could indeed be a key component of policy effectiveness.’

National Ulema Council Say Crypto is Illegal for Muslims, Deemed It as Haram

-----

By: Hassan Maishera

Nov 11, 2021

The National Ulema Council (MUI) in Indonesia has ruled that cryptocurrencies are illegal for Muslims. The council deemed cryptocurrencies as Haram and, as such, banned Indonesian Muslims from using them.

Indonesia is one of the leading Islamic countries in the world, with more than 237 million Muslims living in the country. Asrorun Niam Soleh, head of religious decrees, pointed out that cryptocurrencies could be traded as commodities if they abide by Shariah law and demonstrate clear benefits.

The head of religious decrees said the decision was reached after the council held a meeting earlier this week. He stated that if cryptocurrency as a commodity or a digital asset can abide by Shariah’s tenets and can show a clear benefit, then there is no problem in using it.

The MIU holds the authority in terms of Shariah compliance in the country. This ruling is a huge one as Indonesia has the highest number of Muslims globally. The finance ministry and central bank consults the MIU regarding Islamic finance issues.

Although the MIU has come out against cryptocurrencies, they still remain legal in Indonesia. The government is supportive of cryptocurrencies, allowing its citizens to trade them alongside commodities as investment options.

The government is also working on establishing a crypto-focused exchange by the end of the year. However, the government doesn’t recognize cryptocurrencies as legal tenders but sees them as commodities and digital assets.

The crypto market has retraced following the rally experienced earlier this week. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading just below $65k, down by more than 4% over the past 24 hours. The leading cryptocurrency reached an all-time high above $69k earlier this week, but the market is currently correcting following the rally.

Opposition seeks written assurances from govt before talks

Amir Wasim

November 12, 2021

ISLAMABAD: Members of the joint opposition on Thursday twice met National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser and asked him to give them in writing the terms of engagements with them that should include a categorical statement that it was the government which was approaching them for a dialogue and an assurance that the recently-promulgated controversial ordinances would also be discussed in the parliamentary committee.

The decision that the opposition would seek everything in writing from the speaker was taken by members of the recently-formed steering committee of the joint opposition in a meeting.

“We are going to communicate to the speaker that he should give us in writing because we do not want to hear that we (the opposition) have been pressing for a dialogue,” said parliamentary leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in Senate Sherry Rehman while briefly talking to reporters after attending the meeting of the opposition’s steering committee and before leaving for the speaker’s chamber for the meeting.
