    Arvind Kejriwal visits Dadri, slams parties over 'votebank politics'

    After being initially stopped by administration, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today met the family of the man, who was lynched over rumour of beef consumption, and attacked parties alleging they were spreading poison between Hindus and Muslims for their votebank politics. The Aam Aadmi Party chief was initially asked by local police not to visit Bishada village due to simmering tension. Some locals also protested against visitors, including politicians and mediapersons who have been flocking the village since the Monday night incident. The Chief Minister questioned why AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi and Union Minister Mahesh Sharma were not stopped by the administration yesterday from visiting the family and alleged that other parties were vitiating the atmosphere for political gains.

    Church demands ban on play

    Catholic Church in India has demanded ban on the play 'Agnes of God', an adaptation of American playwright John Pielmeier's drama about a nun giving birth to a dead child, alleging it is a "wrongful portrayal" of priests and nuns committed to a life of celibacy and hurts the sentiments of the Christians. According to the Catholic Bishops Conference of India (CBCI), the play "is the wrongful portrayal of the character of lakhs of clergy, who are committed to a life of celibacy". "We have written to Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and also other Chief Ministers to ban the play as it hurts religious sentiments," Catholic Secular Forum (CSF) general secretary Joseph Dias told PTI here today. He, however, said the CSF has no plan to obstruct the upcoming performance of the play in Mumbai. (Representational Image: PTI)
