Subject: Fortnightly Urdu Review—Indian Policy Foundation.
The Indian Policy Foundation continued with its great piece of work as above. First, the SUMMARY.
The Supreme Court has asked the Central government while looking at a divorce case of a Christian couple that when will Common Civil Code be implemented in the country? However, the decision of the SC is opposed by Muslims. Ulemas appealed to Muslims of the country in a meeting organized in Jaipur that they must not take their cases to Indian courts and boycott them. The appeal made by them is serious. Muslims have always been questioning decisions made by the judiciary of the country. They argued that Sharia Law in the country must remain intact despite the fact that it is changed in several Islamic countries. No one in India has the right to interfere into Sharia Law because they are made by Allah. Therefore, these cannot be changed. Muslim Personal Board has been running a campaign on this from the last few decades.
Some Leftists along with pseudo secularists are running a campaign against the Narendra Modi government after Dadri incident in the country which is condemnable. This was a well planned political conspiracy. The truth is that the motive behind this campaign is to damage the reputation of the country across the world. The strange thing is that Leftists are targeting the Modi government hiding behind this incident. Dadri is located in Uttar Pradesh and Samajwadi Party is ruling the state. Similarly, M M Kalburgi was killed in the Congress-ruled state and similar is the condition in Maharashtra in case of murder of Narand Dabholkar and Govind Pansare. Still Central government is being targeted.
Around 3000 Hajis were killed on September 24, 2015 in the accident in Meena in Saudi Arabia in which 170 were Indians. Saudi Arabia and Iran are at loggerhead ever since and both the countries are going through the cycle of allegations-counter allegations. The reason for spat between both the countries is that Saudi Arabia is ruled by radical Sunnies while Iran is ruled by Shia rulers. They have been fighting for centuries.
Recently, several incidents of attacks on Shia shrine took place in Saudi Arabia in which over 100 people were killed. The Saudi Arab government held Islami jihadi organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria responsible for these incidents. Condition of West Asia is becoming explosive by the day and increasing activities of ISIS in Bangladesh and Maldives is a matter of concern for India. The Central government is concerned about the growing influence of this organization amongst Indian youths.
