The plea filed by UP Shia Waqf Board chairman , Syed Wasim Rizvi, impugns 26 verses from the Quran which he states are used as “justifications” by Islamist Terrorist Groups for attacks on non-believers/ civilians. The plea states, “On account of the versus of Holy Quran, (more particularly described in the Writ Petition), the religion of Islam is drifting away from its basic tenets with a fast pace and nowadays is identified with violent behavior, militancy, fundamentalism, extremism and terrorism.” The petition refers to the following verses: Verse 9 Surah 5; Verse 9 Surah 28; Verse 4 Surah 101; Verse 9 Surah 123; Verse 4 Surah 56; Verse 9 Surah 23; Verse 9 Surah 37; Verse 5 Surah 57; Verse 33 Surah 61; Verse 21 Surah 98; Verse 32 Surah 22; Verse 48 Surah 20; Verse 8 Surah 69; Verse 66 Surah 9; Verse 41 Surah 27; Verse 41 Surah 28; Verse 9 Surah 111; Verse 9 Surah 58; Verse 8 Surah 65; Verse 5 Surah 51; Verse 9 Surah 29; Verse 5 Surah 14; Verse 4 Surah 89; Verse 9 Surah 14; Verse 3 Surah 151; Verse 2 Surah 191 In his plea, Rizvi states that Islam is based on the concepts of equity, equality, forgiveness and tolerance is drifting away from its basic tenets of equity, equality, tolerance and forgiveness. However, due to extreme interpretations of the above-said verses of the Holy Book, the religion of Islam is drifting away from its basic tenets with a fast pace and nowadays is identified with militancy, fundamentalism, extremism and terrorism. He further alleges that after the demise of Prophet Muhammad, there was dispute regarding the genuineness of some of the heavenly messages of God-the Almighty revealed to Prophet Muhammad and that the Caliphs made a mistake in compiling the Holy Quran. The plea draws the Court’s attention towards two types of verses in the Holy Book: Messages of Allah which are positive and promote peace, harmony, brotherhood, tolerance and forgiveness (attached as Annexure P-3 to the petition).Messages of Allah which are negative and promote violence and hatred (attached as Annexure P-4 to the petition). “Why such wide differences in the messages of God-the Almighty (Allah) in Holy Quran itself ?” the plea remarks. It adds, “the dictates of religion which are not in consonance and overlap with the Law of Land of any nation and any Country passed by the competent elected representatives in the form of parliament/ state legislature and the laws and rules made by the United Nations shall have no strength of Law and are voilative of the Law of the land and the same should not prevail over the same.” Rizvi goes on to allege that several Islamic Madrasas are making contribution to Muslim terrorist activities. The plea states, “There are many Muslim madrasas all over the world where young children are taught Islam and Holy Quran is explained to the Islamic students who are working for terrorist activities, in the Quranicsurahs as detailed in the preceding paragraphs. It is like poison in the raw minds of young children in the name of the message of Allah, which leads him to a radical mindset and from his early age when they become young, they hate people of other religions because of their mindset, and many youths get involved with terrorist organizations in some way under this mentality, the wrong messages of Allah Has been filled in the name of Islam.” He insists that as per Article 29 and 30 of the Constitution, religious institutions have freedom to teach with liberty. However, they do not have liberty to teach anything illegal, which violates the Law of the Land or the Indian Constitution. The plea further states, “as per the provisions of Article 25 and 26 of Constitution of India, the freedom of conscious and religion as per clause 1 is subject to public order, morality and health and to the other provisions of this Part, all persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience and the right freely to profess, practice and propagate religion. Further, any religious custom/ belief hasto be in accordance or within the balance of Constitution of India and as the Law is already settled.” Reliance is placed on Shayara Bano v. Union of India & Ors.FIR Against RizviAn FIR was registered in Bareilly against Waseem Rizvi for allegedly hurting the religious sentiments of Muslims with his petition in the Supreme Court seeking removal of some verses of the Quran which he claimed promoted terrorism.”The FIR was registered at the Kotwali police station based on complaints by Anjuman Khuddam-e-Rasool secretary Shan Ahmed and an organisation known as Ittehad-e-Millat Council”, reports PTIChandmal Chopra CaseIn 1987 a petition had been filed in Calcutta High Court by Chandraal Chopra, and Setlal Singh against the State of West Bengal, the respondent, calling upon the latter to show cause why a writ of mandamus should not be issued directing the respondent to declare that each copy of the Koran (Quran).It was alleged that the Quran incited violence, disturbed public tranquillity, promoted, on grounds of religion, feelings of enmity, hatred and ill-will between different religious communities and insulted the religion or religious beliefs of other communities in India.It was contended that the publication of the Koran containing the aforesaid offending portions was punishable under Section 153A and Section 295A of the Indian Penal Code and as such came within the mischief of Section 95 of the Cr. P. C., 1973. As a public authority the respondent had a duty to invoke the said Section 95 of the Cr. P. C. and to forfeit all copies of the Koran and seize the same wherever found in India.Dismissing the Petition the Calcutta High Court held;”We hold that the Courts cannot sit in judgment over the Koran or the contents thereof in any legal proceedings. Such adjudication of the religion itself is not permissible. Similarly the Courts cannot and will not adjudicate on theories of philosophy or of science or scientific principles”.Any attempt to impugn Koran in the manner as has been sought to be done would infringe the right to freedom of religion including the right to profess, practise and propagate religion.We take note of the fact that the Koran has been accepted as a holy through the ages. It is read, followed, published and distributed in all civilised countries of the world. There has been no interference with Koran either in India or in any other country up till now. It is too late in the day for the writ petitioners to contend that publication and propagation of Koran would cause disharmony between communities and religions and the tenets of Koran constitute an insult to other religions or communities”.

Small bakery manufacturers at the show were upbeat amid a backdrop of increasing consumer awareness of food origins and a retailing drive to ’think local’.However, The Heatherslaw Bakery doesn’t talk about ’food miles’; ’food metres’ is closer to the truth. This top-end cake and biscuit bakery stands on the same site as a water-powered mill among the fields where the wheat is grown in Northumberland. MD Colin Smurthwaite claimed this was proving a great selling point. “The story we try to convey is the location, and that everything is handmade to traditional recipes,” he said of the 120 products, which range from four to six months’ shelf life, including a Christmas range with national distribution.The one-year-old Heavenly Cakes was hoping to expose its new branding to distributors. Having formerly helmed a catering firm, the owners switched to baking cakes when they became frustrated at the quality of products they were buying in. The firm now makes 20 lines of traybakes, supplying the likes of London Zoo. “We avoid artificial flavourings, bindings and colours as much as possible and stick to real ingredients, such as real egg and Belgian chocolate,” said co-owner Nigel Green.Ian Craig, MD of Beckleberry’s, which supplies ice cream and speciality patisserie to the hotel and restaurant market, said he was promoting its use of real ingredients: “We work from first principles; we make our own pastry, frangipane, mousses and purées – we use real strawberries rather than what some ingredients suppliers think is the taste of a strawberry!” The seven-day life baked products are deli-vered chilled, while the bulk of the 1,000-strong range are frozen; 40% of products are bespoke. It deli-vers direct to the north of England, while the firm is still joining the dots on its UK-wide distribution.Farmer/miller Gilchesters Orga-nics started working with a wholesaler last month and was drumming up interest in the south for its spelt and rye speciality flours. “Getting bakers to change their habits is a very difficult process,” said owner Andrew Wilkinson. “They have established grists of grain and set modes of production. So for us to introduce speciality stoneground grains, with different baking characteristics, has been hard work. But once bakers try the flours and realise there’s something special in the flavours of these old varieties, it helps us to help them develop new ranges of speciality breads.”Pullins Bakers was launching branded mini bar flapjacks, shortbreads and tiffins, with contemporary-looking cardboard sleeves for coffee shops, travel, retail and foodservice. “We’re also introdu-cing a Family Breads range of five Great Taste Award-winning breads, which have been developed from recipes dating from 1925,” said marketing executive Tristan Hunt.Meanwhile, bake-off specialist Mantinga was showcasing the only product to win a Great Taste Award in the new bake-off category this year – a seeded wholemeal loaf. “To us, that has been a great achievement – we’re the only people, ever, to win a gold in bake-off!” said delighted MD Steven Mackintosh. Mantinga also launched a sun-dried tomato loaf, Mediterranean green olive bread, peperonici and fougasse, with ham and walnuts.

By Dialogo April 18, 2012 At the close of Tradewinds 2011, Major General John M. Croley, commander, Marine Forces South, said, “Over 27 years of Tradewinds, we really like the progress we’ve made to an interagency, joint and combined type training venue providing law enforcement, maritime and ground training.” Tradewinds is one of SOUTHCOM’s multinational joint combined interagency exercises focused on strengthening regional partnerships and collective capabilities that are integral to the security and stability of the Western Hemisphere and to U.S. national security. Recent exercises have been designed to train Caribbean nations for the security requirements needed for major events, according to SOUTHCOM information. “At the end of Exercise Tradewinds 2012, the over 300 military and law enforcement officers from throughout the region who are to participate in the training initiative will be better trained in several areas, including combating transnational organized crime,” said Lt. Col Vickers of the BDF. The exercise falls under SOUTHCOM’s umbrella of security, illegal migration and illicit trafficking exercises designed to improve cooperation, interoperability and operational responses between participating nations to common threats against national, regional and hemispheric security. This year’s participants at the event, “Exercise Tradewinds 2012: Enhancing Regional and Hemispheric Security and Stability” can also expect to learn about conducting security operations from other agencies and external militaries, including the FBI, the U.S. Naval Investigative Service and the Canadian Army Land Force, as both will take part in the Ground Force Tactical Training/Law Enforcement part of the program, reported local Caribbean news portal caribbean360.com.

Wash with normal shampoo in warm but not hot water. Shake off excessive water, wipe with a tower, and dry in air. I acquired this wig purely for the reason that i wanted a brown curly short wig fast. Studying some of the evaluations i was sceptical, but i’m so happy i took the chance and purchased it. It’s not the best wig, but if you have to have a wig brief then get this.I personally employed this wig for my cosplay of dipper pines and truthfully it suits the character really well. It is a small flat on the prime and you can want to fluff it out a little little bit, comb your figures via and regulate it a minimal, but it truly does get the job done. I have very long hair, and i was so happy to learn that by placing it into a braid i was ready to match it all within this wig with no it getting too tight. It is a minor snug, but i’ve experienced additional expensive wigs that were being considerably tighter on me. I have not worn it to a convention yet, but i will be shortly. Let us hope it stays cozy through.

The CVC has found several discrepancies in a DDA project for construction of certain facilities in the Commonwealth Games Village that led to a cost escalation from Rs 38 crore to over Rs 63 crore.According to an internal investigation report, the CVC’s Chief Technical Examination Wing has also said that the construction company has flouted government norms related to testing, purchase and security.As part of its different development projects, the work for construction of swimming pool, training hall, fitness centre and athletic track in the Village spread over 63.5 hectares area was given to Sportina Payce Infrastructure Private Limited, a consortium of four companies especially created for the job, by the Delhi Development Authority.”Sportina Payce Infrastructure Pvt Ltd was the lowest tenderer with their quoted amount of Rs 64.86 crore which was 67.39 per cent above the estimated cost of rs 38.76 crore…Negotiations were conducted with the agency and and the agency reduced their quoted amount to Rs 63,09,67,855 which was 62.77 per cent above the estimated cost and 11.79 per cent above the justified amount of Rs 56.44 crore.”As per CPWD manual which is being followed by the DDA the work can be awarded up to 10 per cent above the justified cost. Work Advisory Board decided to place the matter before the Hon’ble LG for acceptance… and work was awarded to Sportina Payce Infrastructure Pvt Ltd at their negotiated amount of Rs 63,09,67,855,” the report, which was received in reply to an RTI query filed by PTI, said.According to the finding, an application was submitted by a consortium of Payce Consolidated Ltd and Paynter Dixon Construction Pvt Ltd, Australia, Sportina Exim Pvt Ltd, Mumbai and Robertson + Marks Architect Pvt Ltd, Australia.advertisement”As per the agreement to establish a consortium, the consortium members agreed to incorporate a limited liability company i.e. a Special Purpose Vehicle Company (SPV) in the name and style of Sportina Payce Construction (India) Pvt Ltd…”But at the time of submitting the tender, a company was formed as Sportina Payce Infrastructure Pvt Ltd which submitted the tender and became L1 and finally work was awarded to them,” it said.”In this company other partners except Sportina Exim Pvt were not represented at all. Ultimately at site only Sportina Exim Pvt Ltd was executing the work which does not have expertise, experience which was considered at the time of Pre Qualification. Thus undue favour has been shown to agency,” the anti-corruption watchdog noticed in its report.”Certain discrepancies were observed in the justification of rates prepared during award of work which resulted into higher justified cost,” the report read.Pointing out the irregularities, it said that labour charges for fixing tiles and calculations of Value Added Tax (VAT) was calculated twice.The contractor also did not furnish workmen’s compensation policy which was a mandatory requirement to insure at his cost and expense against any damage or loss or injury which may be caused to any person or property at site of work, the report said.At the time of inspection, the CVC officials noticed that payments were being made without testing of cement concrete cubes was not being done for seven days strength which gives the idea of tentative strength of the concrete.The findings are the part of one of the 16 different Commonwealth Games-related construction works being carried out by various departments here. Six of them are being done by Public Works Department (PWD), three by Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), two each by Central Public Works Department (CPWD), DDA, New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) and one by RITES, a Government of India Enterprise.Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has also appointed a high level committee under the chairmanship of former Comptroller and Auditor General V K Shunglu to investigate and report within three months time its finding on irregularities in the conduct of the mega sporting event held here between October 3-14.Besides Enforcement Directorate, Income Tax Department and CAG are also conducting enquiries into various alleged financial and administrative lacunae.With PTI inputs
