Seven Palestinians killed in Gaza

At least seven Palestinians have been killed after Israeli forces targeted a tunnel in a southern town of the besieged Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian officials. Palestinian media reported that the tunnel had been hit by the Israeli air force. Israeli officials said that the tunnel near the border wall, which was in the process of being built, was blown up after being monitored for some time. Since 2008, Israel has launched three offensives on the Gaza Strip. The Israeli blockade of the occupied Gaza Strip, in its current form, has been in place since June 2007, when Israel...

India will become Islamic nation by 2027, warns Hindu leader

A Hindu Yuva Vahini leader on Sunday alleged it is the Muslim community’s conspiracy to increase their population to make India an Islamic nation by 2027. The extremist right-wing organisation was founded by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in 2002 and he is also the chief patron of the outfit. “If the Muslim population continued to grow at the same pace, India will become an Islamic country by 2027. It’s a conspiracy of the Muslim community. They want to have total control over India,” Nagendra Pratap Tomar, the western Uttar Pradesh head of the outfit, said at workers’ conference. “Muslims bear children not because they want to have them, but because they want to occupy the whole country,” he...

BJP accelerates it’s anti-Muslim rhetoric in India

The tide of public opinion is turning against the BJP. Popular anger over the deepening economic mess amid disappearing jobs and rural distress has been so overwhelming that the ruling party has been finding it difficult to face the people even in Modi’s home state of Gujarat that goes to polls by year end. The BJP has gone back to Lord Ram and its core agenda with the likes of Yogi Adityanath, the saffron robed Uttar Pradesh chief minister, and Sangeet Som, the BJP rabble-rouser known for his role in the 2012 Muzaffarnagar carnage, leading the charge. The BJP is queering the pitch by absurdly attacking the iconic Taj Mahal, which attracts millions of foreign tourists and foreign exchange every year, as something built by “traitors” and as a “blot” on the country’s image. The BJP government after 3 years in office has decided to light up the temple town of Ayodhya with unprecedented celebrations led by Adityanath and the entire state machinery, amid the talk of building the Ram temple. As if the trauma of disastrous demonetization wasn’t enough, this government rolled out the haphazardly executed GST amid great fanfare, comparing the occasion to India’s ‘freedom at midnight’ celebrations. While the past three years of this government have been nothing but an endless nightmare for the Muslims, with the BJP politicians and their extended clan leading the frequent...

Citizenship legislation scrapped

The Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) has applauded the scrapping last night of the Federal Government’s proposed new citizenship legislation. The Senate removed the proposed Bill from the Senate notice paper after the Government, which faced certain defeat of its proposed legislation, failed to bring it to a vote. “We congratulate every Senator who stood up against this cruel, unnecessary and discriminatory proposal,” the Chairperson of FECCA, Ms Mary Patetsos said today. “The plan to extend the waiting period and demand university-standard English language skills from migrants in order for them to become Australian citizens was unjust and unfair,” Ms Patetsos said. “The fact is that generations of migrants, despite having limited command of English when they became citizens, have made huge contributions to Australian society.” Ms Patetsos said that now the Parliament had spoken, the Government should put such harsh legislative proposals to rest. “For decades, Australian citizenship had fostered inclusivity, allowing migrants to feel Australian, regardless of their country of origin.” “This legislation would have damaged Australia’s cohesive multicultural society by creating an underclass of Australian residents denied citizenship.” “We now have a great opportunity for FECCA to work with the Government to find positive ways – rather than punitive ways – to make migrants feel welcomed and part of Australian society,” Ms Patetsos said. FECCA is the national peak body representing Australians from...
