Eid and Lohri. Justice Indermeet Kaur adjourned the matter till Thursday,as the senior lawyer who was to represent Rajasekaran was not available on Wednesday The JD(U) leader has challenged the 25 November order of the poll panel giving reasons for recognising the faction led by Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar as the real JD(U) and allotting the ‘Arrow’ symbol to it Kumar and Yadav had parted ways after the former decided to join hands with the BJP in July triggering a battle for the control of the party File image of Sharad Yadav PTI The Sharad Yadav faction had earlier moved the high court against the EC’s 17 November order which had ruled in favour of Kumar’s faction with regard to which group was the real JD(U) but the poll panel had not given reasons for arriving at the decision The poll panel gave a reasoned order on 25 November Rajasekaran in his plea has sought the setting aside of the 25 November order of the Election Commission The earlier plea was moved by Gujarat MLA Chottubhai Vasava who was the then acting president of the Yadav faction of the JD(U) Vasava’s lawyer had told the court that the first phase of filing nominations for the Gujarat polls has got over andthe second phase would be completed in another 10 days So it has to be decided before that as to who will use the symbol in the upcoming elections Vasava had contended in his plea Kumar’s faction had told the court that its members have already filed nominations with the ‘Arrow’ symbol as the EC had ruled in their favour Following the rift with Kumar Yadav had claimed that by ending the alliance with Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD and deserting the greater ‘Grand Alliance’ Kumar had gone against the party’s national executive’s decision to oppose the BJP As the rift widened Yadav held a ‘national executive’ conclave of the JD(U) here where Vasava was appointed the acting president Vasava who is also the Gujarat unit party chief and a six-term MLA had approached the ECI staking claim over the party and its poll symbol ‘Arrow’ Yadav has all along maintained that the faction led by him was the real JD(U) The ECI in its 17 November order had said the group ledby Kumar "has demonstrated overwhelming majority support" in the legislature wing as well as the majority in the national council of the party which is the apex organisational body of the JD(U) However Vasava’s counsel had contended that the EC hadrelied on the "disputed" election of the national council and said that the party led by Yadav was the real JD(U) Written by Agencies | Mumbai | Published: July 23 2010 6:00

News NEARLY a week after the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) slapped a case under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) against Malwani youth Ayyaz Sultan the fate of the two other youths whose ‘return was facilitated’ by the agency hangs in balance According to sources in the state counter terrorism agency the decision on whether or not to book the two under the same Act will depend on the capture of the third missing youth Four youths all residents of the Malwani locality in Malad West went missing from their homes between October and the second week of December They have been identified as autorickshaw driver Mohsin Sheikh unemployed graduate Wajid Sheikh another unemployed man named Ayyaz Sultan and Noor Sheikh who did odd jobs While Sultan has been tracked to Kabul Wajid and Noor ‘returned’ last month Mohsin is still on the run “The two have blamed Mohsin for fleeing claiming they just acted on his instructions They claim that after Sultan’s parents lodged a missing persons’ complaint and kept on inquiring with the two men on Sultan’s whereabouts Mohsin suggested to go underground as police might trouble them and even arrest them as they had downloaded material pertaining to the Islamic State on their phones which is prohibited under law On his advice they all decided to flee and left their homes on December 15” said a senior officer from the agency Both Wajid and Noor are being grilled by the agency since their return and have not been given a clean chit yet Mohsin has gone off the radar and efforts are underway to track him down sources claimed According to sources the duo have told interrogators that the plan was to board trains separately and travel alone However the police are not buying their version and have launched a manhunt to track Mohsin Sources claim Mohsin’s capture will help the agency find out the facts “While they might claim they travelled separately and did not know about each other’s movements we have reasons to believe that all three travelled to Chennai to procure passports but failed to do so for want of rent agreements This theory would be clear once we get Mohsin Also they left their cell phones behind so that their movements could not be tracked by the agency this too they claim was Mohsin’s idea We feel that since Mohsin has not been captured the duo are claiming innocence and blaming Mohsin” added the source The uncertainty is one of the reasons behind not booking them under UAPA like Sultan Meanwhile the duo have told the ATS sleuths that it was Sultan who used to download the materials relating to the banned outfit on their cell phones and instructed them to read and follow it “They claim that Sultan who was radicalised online used to download the materials on their cell phones and ask them to follow it They claim the content read by them was downloaded by him and the quartet used to have lengthy discussions over it It was during these discussions Sultan once expressed the need of travelling to Afghanistan and serving the Caliphate” added the official [email protected] For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: AP | Saint-denis | Published: June 27 2016 8:55 am Alvaro Morata finished the group stage as one of the tournament’s leading scorers with three goals (Source: AP) Top News Better than anyone Alvaro Morata knows what Spain will be up against Italy on Monday The 23-year-old Juventus striker has spent the last two seasons playing in Italy the country the defending champions will face in the round of 16 at the European Championship “It’s difficult to attack against them they are specialists Tactically they are almost perfect” Morata said Sunday “It will be one of the most important games of my career” Morata will likely be facing four former teammates at Stade de France including goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and three other members of the much-acclaimed Italian defense Giorgio Chiellini Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli The Italian trio has been playing together for both club and country and has been key to the team’s success at Euro 2016 The other Juventus players in Italy’s squad in France are Simone Zaza and Stefano Sturaro “I have to thank them for how they helped me in every area personally and as a player” Morata said “When I arrived there I needed a lot of help and they were there for me” Morata has played with Juventus since 2014 but is returning to Real Madrid after the European Championship The Spanish club said this month that it decided to use its option to buy back the player who will reportedly cost 30 million euros “He has a gift that only the top players have” Buffon said “He often stars and often scores in the biggest games Clearly Spain is not only about Morata but he is the focal point of the attack and definitely is their main threat” Although he will be a rival on Monday Buffon gave advice to Morata when they were at Juventus “He was going through a tough time and I told him that once he stopped feeling sorry for himself he would become a great player” the veteran Italy goalkeeper said Morata finished the group stage as one of the tournament’s leading scorers with three goals along with Wales forward Gareth Bale After being criticized for poor finishes in Spain’s opening game against the Czech Republic when he was substituted in the second half Morata scored twice in the 3-0 win over Turkey and netted the team’s lone goal in the 2-1 loss to Croatia in the final group match a result that dropped Spain to second place and set up the early encounter with the Italians Morata who played in the 2013 Under-21 European Championship final win over Italy is one of the few players from Spain’s “new generation” getting a chance with La Roja at Euro 2016 Goalkeeper David De Gea is the only other younger player starting in France “Morata has been doing well” Spain coach Vicente Del Bosque said “What he still lacks is the regularity that top players have He adds a lot to our team and little by little he has to gain this regularity” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Express News Service | Published:

most learned Ulemas of India over 10000 are present this morningand it is my honour to address them I also greet the Rector of the Darul Uloom and recognise the presence of many renowned scholars We know that the JUH was founded in 1919 in order to lend the support of the Muslim clergy to the anti-British movement It was among the first organisations that stood firmly on the side of the nationalist forces and resolutely opposed the two-nation theory espoused by the Muslim League After Independencethe JUH has focused on the promotion of the socialreligious and economic interests of the Muslim community I am therefore very happy to be able to share some thoughts with this august assembly Since the beginning of civilisationthe world has always been torn by conflicts The birth of free India was under circumstances that could only be described as traumatic The scars of partition and of the largest migration in human history still remain Post-Independence toothe country has witnessed numerous conflicts caste against castereligion against religionlanguage against language Neverthelesswe must always remember that pluralism is our inheritance Pluralism should be our strength It is only due to the thoughtless words and actions of some that we havesadlyallowed our diversity to become differences The advent of Islam in the Indian sub-continent may have occurred during the life time of the Prophet himself… Let me recall some facts of history One of the earliest acts of resistance to British rule was the Vellore Mutiny It was in 1806a good 50 years before the First War of Independence in 1857 During the freedom strugglehundreds of Muslim leaders fought and sufferedshoulder to shoulderwith leaders belonging to other faiths Who can forget the glorious

namehave enriched our society We cannot view Islam as an alien faith Our Muslim brethren are honoured citizens of India This is the land of your forbears; this is the land of your birth; and this is where you will live and work It is a matter of pride for us that all major religions of the worldincluding Islamexist and thrive in India A nation can ignore its minorities only at its peril The golden rule in a democracy is that it is the duty of the majority to protect the minoritybe it religiousracial or linguistic It is a self-evident rule It is a rule that is firmly rooted in the universality of human rights Hencewe have no hesitation in invoking that rule when Tamils are denied their rights in Sri Lanka or Indian students are assaulted in Australia There is also a sub-rule to the golden rule What is a minority in one place could well be the majority in another place: for exampleMuslims in Jammu & Kashmir or Sikhs in Punjab In such situationsthe roles will be reversed Although a minority nation-widethe Muslim community in Jammu & Kashmir is bound by the golden rule as well as the tenets of Islam to protect the minority communities in that State Alassome think that the golden rule is dispensable or that it can be applied selectively It is that thought that is pernicious It is that thought that sows the seeds of communalism Moral and spiritual values form the core of a civilisation The education system must instill these values in its citizensespecially its children Educationhoweverhas a larger purpose It must empower the child The education system must

Institutions (IDMI) and the setting up of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas (KGBV) provide the best assurance of quality education to Muslim children While all manifestations of communalism are deplorablethe worst kind of communalism is unleashing communal violence Violence and violent means to achieve any objective is the anti-thesis of a civilised society governed by the rule of law The demolition of the Babri Masjid was a manifestation of religious fanaticism and an act of extreme prejudice Likewisetaking to the path of violence in the name of religion must also be deplored in unequivocal terms I am glad to note that the Darul Uloom at Deoband issued a Fatwa against terrorism on February 252008 and categorically stated that Islam rejects all kinds of unwarranted
