This practice of nikah halala is to consider retrograde and anti-women by women activist. Women activist have also signed a petition regarding this topic

The supreme court has agreed on this petition and has forwarded it to the center and the law ministry. The Supreme court had also directed the Centre to respond to the plea seeking to declare the provisions of Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) which validate the practice of polygamy and nikah halala as unconstitutional.

The Bhartiya Muslim Mahila Andolan(BMMA) has also signed the petition and is ready to contribute towards the cause. Zakia Soman of BMMA said “We are seeking a comprehensive law regulating all aspects of marriage and family by a Quranic-based law that complies with the Constitution too. We want halala to be a criminal offense and polygamy to be illegal. We believe the Quran doesn’t permit polygamy in today’s context. We are seeking legal protection like that for Hindu and Christian women.”

‘Jews in Gujarat will get minority status’

‘Jews in Gujarat will get minority status’

small Bene Israeli community in Gujarat is now declared as a minority by the chief minister Vijay Rupani of gujrat. He announced it during the meeting with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his 10-day visit to Israel, thus fulfilling a long-pending demand of the community in the state.

Now reduced to a handful, there are only168 members of the community in Gujarat of which 140-odd members, who are settled in Ahmedabad, gathered at the Magen Abraham synagogue in the Walled City.

The Jewish population in Gujarat is so minuscule that they didn’t even figure separately in the Census 2011, and were just mentioned as part of 16,480 ‘other communities’ in the state.

Aviv Divekar, secretary of the Magen Abraham Synagogue, said that it is truly a landmark moment for the community. “Apart from anything else, the status would ensure their property rights to the community. While the synagogue has been provided security, many of the properties related to the community need care,” he said.

Sahitya Akademi winner Esther David said, “It was a long-pending demand. The announcement recognizing the small Jewish community goes a long way in not only making us feel safer, but that our presence has been recognized as a minority in the country.”

 

Divekar said that they had met Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani at his office during the last session of state assembly and had represented their case. “Ahmedabad at the moment has 140 members of Jewish community whereas Gujarat has 170,” he said.

Apple secures ‘big win’ on iPhone camera

Apple secures ‘big win’ on iPhone camera

Aplle has always claimed that apple iphone camera is best in the industry. Iphone manufactrure recently put an advertisement on youtube saying that there camera quality can be used for the industry purpose. In the video the Cupertino based-tech firm claimed that the device can take ‘Studio Quality portraits’ shots of people. Two complainants however, thought that the advertisement was misleading as mentioned in the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) website. But now, the smartphone maker has received a green chit.

ASA said that apple can term there iphone x as ‘Studio quality portraits’ while advertising there leading iphone x. The Cupertino-based tech firm argued that “The 50 mm focal lens in the iPhone X was one of the most popular professional studio portrait lenses and the lighting options available on the phone mimicked what could be done in a studio.”

The Advertising Standard Authority commented that “We recognised that there were many effects, techniques and tools used in studio photography which played a vital role in capturing high standard images, many of which were not available to someone solely using the iPhone X. However, we recognised the emphasis was placed on the significance of the lighting effects on achieving the quality of image the ad demonstrated, and we understood that those images shown were a true reflection of the capabilities of the iPhone X’s camera.”

With this apple has commented that there is no industry standard definition of “Studio-quality” portraits and believed the term to be subjective.

ASA investigated the ad under three BCAP Code rules – 3.1 (Misleading advertising), 3.9 (Substantiation) and 3.12 (Exaggeration). None of this was breached by the Apple iPhone X ad.

Your city has less than 1 tree per person

Your city has less than 1 tree per person

The trees scattered along the avenues have declined since 2005. The protests against tree felling for the redevelopment of seven south Delhi colonies may reflect the prevailing popular anxiety, but tree cover in the city went down from 123 sq km in 2009 to 111 sq km in 2015, before rising to 113 sq km in 2017, according to the Forest Survey of India’s State of Forest

The capital’s per capita tree cover stands at an abysmal 0.002 hectare. The Forest Survey of India (FSI) puts Delhi’s per capita tree availability at 0.3, or less than one tree per personAnd while forest and tree covers cannot be directly compared, Russia’s per capita forest cover of 5.58 ha, Brazil’s 2.37 ha and United States’ 0.96 ha are suggestive of these cities being in a better situation. Forest cover in Delhi has gone up marginally since 2005.

FSI reports are based on data from two years prior to their publication. These, therefore, suggest that the loss in the city’s tree cover has taken place mainly in the 2005-15 decade.

“Tree cover should be increasing in cities. It can be dynamic because these are not protected forests,” explained Prakash Lakhchaura of FSI. “There can be some change due to infrastructure projects, but the overall trend should be of a rise in tree cover.”

“Trees are excellent trappers of dust and carbon dioxide. Trees and vegetation are also crucial to minimise the impact of heat island effect, which not only increases local temperature but also causes a rise in emission of secondary pollutants like ozone,” said Anumita Roy Chowdhury, executive director, Centre for Science and Environment.

“I have even seen the forest department planting champa, pongamia, royal palm and bougainvillea. These are not even trees. You need canopied trees to fight pollution,” said C R Babu, professor emeritus, Centre for Environmental Management of Degraded Ecosystems. “Yes, the forest department has created a city forest and some wooded lots, but it should focus on native species.”
