  • shiv sena on muslims in india

    Muslims who consider India their motherland entitled to all citizen rights, says Shiv Sena
    Shiv Sena said all Muslims who consider India their motherland should be given all citizen rights. "All Muslims who consider India as their motherland and those who are ready to sweat it out for the development of the country are our brothers and they should be given all the rights as citizens of India," the Shiv Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece 'Saamana'. The Sena also said it was wrong on part of a business house to deny job to a young man, named Zeshan Khan, for being a Muslim and took a swipe at the Adani Group for offering him a job in the company for "publicity. Recently it came to light that a youngster was denied job for following a particular religion. If this is true, it is highly condemnable...," the Shiv Sena said. "This company is known to be close to Narendra Modi.... The company got good publicity in the name of Zeshan," it said. (PTI)

    Should man acquitted of rape be considered rape survivor: Court
    Should a person acquitted of rape charges be considered as a "rape survivor", a Delhi court has pondered while acquitting a man accused of raping a divorcee. Additional Sessions Judge Nivedita Anil Sharma made the observation while acquitting a Haryana native of the offence of raping the woman after she retracted from her complaint and said she was now happily married to the accused. "Today there is public outrage and a hue and cry is being raised everywhere that courts are not convicting rape accused. However, no man, accused of rape, can be convicted if the witnesses do not support the prosecution case or give quality evidence, as in the present case where the prosecutrix is hostile," the judge said.

However, it is equally important to ensure that the institutional machinery charged with the welfare and protection of Dalits is strengthened and made accountable so that all Dalits are able to access justice as a matter of right,” Sonia Gandhi wrote in a letter to Prime Minister Modi.
