Kudankulam power plant gets Supreme Court nod

New Delhi: The Supreme Court gave its green signal to the commissioning of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant in Tamil Nadu on Monday.

Dismissing a host of PILs challenging the Madras High Court’s earlier order in favour of the plant, the apex court today termed the operationalisation of Kudankulam nuclear power plant as necessary for the country’s growth.

Stressing that development of nuclear energy is important for India, the court said, “Kudankulam plant is safe and secure and it is necessary for larger public interest and economic growth of the country.”

Importantly, Supreme Court gave 15 guidelines on commissioning, safety and security and environmental issues concerning the Kudankulam nuclear plant

The operationalisation of the KNPP had run into rough weather with massive protests by the locals and activists who were apprehensive about the safety measures undertaken. They had said that additional safety measures which had been prescribed by a government task force had not been implemented.

The Centre has dismissed the concerns regarding safety and has claimed that enhanced safety measures would be implemented in due course.

Agitation regarding KNPP has been going on for the past two years, with agitators demanding the closure of the plant and camping at Idinthakarai, three kilometres away from the plant complex to put pressure on the government.

The People's Movement against Nuclear Energy (PMANE) has been spearheading the anti-Kudankulam campaign. It has given the example of Fukushima disaster in Japan after the tsunami there to highlight the dangers the plant. PMANE has also raised questions regarding the disposal of nuclear waste and other issues.

Questions were also been raised by the fishermen living in the nearby area about marine life being affected by the plant.

Panaji: Union Defence Minister AK Antony will commission MIG-29 K fighter planes into the Indian Navy on 11 May in Goa.

The squadron, named INAS 303 Black Panthers, will be commissioned on 11 May by the Defence Minister at INS Hansa Naval base in the state, Indian Navy PRO said.

The aircraft were inducted in the force on 19 February, 2010.

The MIG-29K (K stands for ‘Korabelny’ meaning “Carrier Borne” in Russian) is a potent carrier borne fighter, which, once integrated with ‘INS Vikramaditya’ will bolster the Navy’s punch with its multi-role capability, the PRO said.

The aircraft, armed with its arsenal of weapons, including advanced anti-aircraft and anti-ship missiles, precious bombs and sophisticated systems to support weapon delivery, will not only be able to dominate the air in all spectrum of conflict but simultaneously project power to meet the nation’s military objectives.

This lethal fighter aircraft will enhance Indian Navy’s capability to exercise air superiority in its area of influence, he said.

It will also decisively enhance the core of Navy’s striking power. The last three years since the induction have seen the men and their machines attain full operational status and the squadron is now ready to undertake any mission assigned.

He said that the men and machine have successfully completed all tasks and trials assigned and established its role worthiness, and the MIG-29K squadron is now ready to be commissioned into front line unit of the Indian Navy squadron.

Saudi Arabia to let girls play sports in private schools for the first time

Saudi Arabian girls will be allowed to play sports in private schools for the first time, according to a decision announced on Saturday, the latest in a series of incremental changes aimed at slowly increasing women’s rights in the ultraconservative kingdom.

Saudi Arabia’s official press agency, SPA, reported that private girls’ schools are now allowed to hold sports activities in accordance with the rules of Shariah, or Islamic law. Students must adhere to “decent dress” codes and Saudi women teachers will be given priority in supervising the activities, according to the Education Ministry’s requirements.

“It’s about time,” said Aziza Youssef, a professor at King Saud University. “Everything is being held back in Saudi Arabia as far as women’s rights.”The decision makes sports once again a stage for the push to improve women’s rights, nearly a year after two Saudi female athletes made an unprecedented appearance at the Olympics.

Youssef said she sees the decision to allow sports for girls in private schools as part of package of wider reforms targeting women, but that continued restrictions on sports is a discrimination that negatively impacts women’s health.

Education Ministry spokesman Mohammed al-Dakhini was quoted in SPA saying that the decision to allow girls to play sports in private schools “stems from the teachings of our religion, which allow women such activities in accordance with Shariah.”

The government had previously quietly tolerated physical education in some private schools, but there is no set curriculum.

The decision, which also orders private girls’ schools to provide appropriate places and equipment for sports, is a monumental step that will likely soon affect public schools and universities, which are also gender segregated, Youssef said.

The Saudi government plays a role in private schools, providing text books and directors.

Deputy Minister of Education for Women’s Affairs, Nora al-Fayez, was quoted in local press saying recently that there is a plan in place to expand sports education in public schools. It remains unclear if girls would have access to the same level of physical education as boys.

Sports for women in Saudi Arabia have been largely a pastime of elites who can afford expensive health club memberships. They are often attached to hospitals since women’s gyms were closed in 2010 on grounds they were unlicensed.

Saudi Arabia allowed two female athletes to compete in last summer’s Olympics only after the International Olympics Committee had put intense pressure on the kingdom to end its practice of sending only male teams to the games. Their participation was not shown on Saudi TV stations.

Women’s sports remain nearly an underground activity in the kingdom, which is home to Islam’s holiest site in Mecca.

Only the largest female university in the kingdom – Princess Nora Bint Abdul Rahman Unviersity – has a swimming pool, tennis court and exercise area for its students. No other university in Saudi Arabia has sports facilities for its female students and staff.

Women are also bound by strict rules when it comes to their attire, so they cannot, for example, be seen by men while jogging in sweat pants. Almost all women in Saudi Arabia cover their face with a veil known as the “niqab,” and even foreigners are obliged to respect local culture and wear a loose black dress known as the “abaya.”

China tacitly acknowledges withdrawal of troops from Ladakh

Tacitly acknowledging the withdrawal of its troops from Depsang Valley in Ladakh, China today said the "stand off incident" with India was resolved through "fruitful consultations", keeping the larger interests of bilateral relations in mind. 

"Following the stand off incident at the border area, China and India with the larger interests of bilateral relations in mind have taken a cooperative and constructive attitude," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said. 

The two sides exercised restraint and properly handled the incident through relevant mechanisms, diplomatic channels and border meetings, she said. 

In her first comments after the decision of the two countries to withdraw troops from the Daulat Beg Oldi (DBO) area after a 20-day stand off, Hua said, "As far as I know relevant consultations have been fruitful". 

"We believe that maintaining peace and tranquillity in the border areas serve the common interests of the two sides. China is ready to join hands with the Indian side to seek a mutually acceptable and fair solution to the border question at an early date", she said. 

Pressed for more details on the settlement, including dismantling of tents erected by the PLA, Hua said, "I need to follow closely the latest information". 

"As I said before the two sides bear in mind the larger interests of bilateral relations," she said. 

The two sides have taken a constructive and cooperative attitude and have maintained communication and consultation and made positive progress, Hua said. 

"I will share with you relevant information if I get the latest information," she said. 

Asked whether the Chinese troops moved back from their position, when did that happen and how far they withdrew, she replied, "I have said the two sides have been constructive and cooperative and have been maintaining communications through relevant mechanism in the border regions". 

"Relevant consultations have made positive progress. I know you are very concerned about this and I must follow the information to tell you the correct information", Hua said. 

"I believe the Chinese and Indian sides should maintain peace and tranquillity in the border areas and work for the smooth development of bilateral relations", she said.

Opposition demand PM’s resignation in Parliament

With a series of scams battering the government, Parliament was paralysed again today as an aggressive Opposition demanded the resignation of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union ministers P K Bansal and Ashwani Kumar.

Meeting in the backdrop of Congress rejecting the demand for resignation of the Railway Minister and the Law Minister, Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha saw two adjournments before lunch break.

Parliament has not been able to function since the second phase of the Budget session started on April 22.

Disorder was the order of the day as the two Houses assembled at 11 AM after a weekend break during which Bansal came under a cloud after the arrest of his nephew by CBI on bribery charges in connection with a plum posting in Railways.

The twin issues of coal scam and allegations of bribery in connection with senior—level postings in the Railways took prominence as BJP and Left members stormed into the Well in Lok Sabha and BJP in Rajya Sabha.

The protests were more marked as the proceedings were held close on the heels of the CBI Director admitting before the Supreme Court that certain changes were made in the coalgate draft report on suggestions given by Kumar and officials of the PMO.

Akali Dal members also forcefully raised the issue of the acquittal of Congress leader Sajjan Kumar in the 1984 anti—Sikh riots case and demanded setting up of a Supreme Court—monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe allegations against him afresh.

SP members in Lok Sabha raised the issue of immediate implementation of the Sachar Committee recommendations for welfare of Muslims.

U.N. official: There are strong suspicions Syrian rebels used sarin gas

Damascus, Syria (CNN) -- A U.N. official says there are strong suspicions that Syrian rebel forces have used sarin gas in the country's civil war.
Carla Del Ponte told an Italian-Swiss TV station that the findings come after interviews with doctors and Syrian victims now in neighboring countries.
But rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad said rebels don't even possess any unconventional weapons, nor are they trying to obtain any.
"In any case, we don't have the mechanism to launch these kinds of weapons, which would need missiles that can carry chemical warheads, and we in the FSA do not possess these kind of capabilities," Almokdad said.
"More importantly, we do not aspire to have (chemical weapons) because we view our battle with the regime as a battle for the establishment of a free democratic state. ... We want to build a free democratic state that recognizes and abides by all international accords and agreements -- and chemical and biological warfare is something forbidden legally and internationally."
Tensions mount between Iran, Syria and Israel
Iran has no doubt Syria will deal a "crushing response" to Israel, and the Shiite regime stands ready to train its ally's soldiers, officials in Tehran said.
The remarks, delivered by various Iranian officials and reported in state media, came Sunday after Syria claimed that Israel launched a fresh attack inside its borders.

"As a Muslim and friendly country, we stand by Syria and if there is need for training, we will provide them with necessary training," Brig. Gen. Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan, commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces, told reporters Sunday.
Around the same time, Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said he had no doubt Syria and its allies will "give a crushing response to the aggressions of the Zionists," the state-run IRNA news agency reported.
Israel has not confirmed or denied that it fired rockets that hit a military research center in the Damascus suburbs Sunday.

Zulfiqar Ali prosecutor in 26/11 Mumbai Attacks and Benazir Assassination Killed

Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali, a senior government prosecutor in Pakistan who was handling two major cases of Mumbai Terror Attacks of 2008 and assassination of the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto of 2007 was gunned down by unidentified gunmen on 3 May 2013 in the capital city Lahore.

Zulfiqar Ali was gunned down on his way to Rawalpindi, while he was proceeding ahead for a hearing in Benazir Bhutto assassination case. He was shot on his head, shoulder and chest during the attack.


Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali was the prosecutor of the two high profile cases in the Court of Pakistan namely, 26/11 Mumbai Attacks and Benazir Bhutto Assassination. Thus the attacks can be seen by linking the two major cases behind his murder. Zulfiqar was a highly competent prosecutor of Pakistan and had a huge experience of handling such high-profile cases.

Earlier, the ex-military ruler Parvez Musharraf returned back to the country on 24 March 2013 after a long self-imposed exile of four years to contest elections. On his return to the country he was placed under a two-week house arrest by the Federal Investigation Agency in Pakistan over the charges of conspiring to murder Bhutto.

Thus the killing of Zulfiqar Ali can be seen linked with some or the other incidences that followed as few days back he asked the government to increase his security.

Lord Ganesh found in the form of brinjal in England

Dozens of devotees are flocking a makeshift temple set up by an Indian caterer in Leicester after he found a brinjal that looks like the Hindu God Ganesh.
61-year-old Praful Visram discovered the brinjal in a box of vegetables and now proudly displays in the backroom at his workplace, British tabloid 'The Sun' reported.
He claims Ganesh has blessed him and he is simply honouring the divine wish by putting it on display.
"My wife, Rekha, saw it and recognised the similarity with Ganpati Bappa - Lord Ganesh. We immediately placed it with reverence in the temple at work. It has been a blessing for us and I hope will bring us luck and prosperity," Praful was quoted as saying by the paper.
"This has been sent to us and we shall treat this with the respect it deserves," said Praful, who runs a catering unit.
Nowadays, Praful and his family is joined by his catering staff twice a day to worship the divine vegetable.
He said word has spread and over 80 people have turned up to worship the elephant-faced aubergine. "It is spreading good feeling throughout the community," Praful added.
Devotees worshipping the vegetable believe it to be a reincarnation of Ganpati Bappa and have vowed to give the sacred brinjal a full Hindu funeral, once it decomposes and becomes too mouldy, the report said.
And one of Praful's workers, Bacash said, "There is no doubt that it looks like the God. I pray in the temple at work every day and it gives me a good feeling."

Israel deploys Iron Dome rocket systems in north

Israel's military has deployed a rocket defence system to the north of the country following reported Israeli airstrikes in neighbouring Syria targeting weapons believed to be destined for Lebanon's Hezbollah militants.

The military said it moved two Iron Dome batteries on Sunday as part of "ongoing situational assessments".

The move came hours after Israel carried out what an intelligence official said was an airstrike in Damascus that attacked a shipment of Iranian-made missiles bound for Hezbollah.

It was the second Israeli strike in three days.

The stepped-up Israeli activity has raised tensions with Syria, Hezbollah and the group's Iranian backers.

Iron Dome protects against short-range rockets. Hezbollah has thousands of such projectiles.

Legally working Indians allowed to regularise in Saudi: Officials

Dubai: Indian workers who have travelled to Saudi Arabia legally will be allowed to regularise their visa status, get new jobs or to return home if they register voluntarily with the Saudi authorities during the three months grace period announced by the Kingdom, according to officials.

This was among the issues discussed at the Joint Group meeting held this week at the Saudi Ministry of Labour. The group will continue their discussions next week, said a statement issued from the Indian embassy in Riyadh.

The Joint Group was set up during the discussions between Saudi Labour Minister Adel Fakeih and Indian delegation led by Overseas Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi in Jeddah on April 28.

Representational picture. Reuters

The Group is mandated to discuss all issues pertaining to the welfare of the Indian community in Saudi Arabia including immediate issues pertaining to implementation of Nitaqat programme and overstaying Indian workers.

The ‘Nitaqat’ law makes it mandatory for local firms to hire one Saudi national for every 10 migrant workers. There has been widespread perception that the new policy will lead to denial of job opportunities for a large number of Indians.

Over two million Indians are currently working in Saudi Arabia. The Saudi government was implementing the Nitaqat law to cut unemployment in the country.

The Joint Group also discussed re-employment of those overstaying Indian workers in Saudi by availing the facilities offered by the Ministry of Labour including services of the newly set up mega-recruiting companies, the statement said.

It asked all Indians affected by the Nitaqat programme and those overstaying in Saudi Arabia to register their names at the Labour Ministry website.

Palestinian Leader Seeks Support of China

HONG KONG — The president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, arrived in China on Sunday seeking support from its leaders, days before the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, will also visit Beijing, although Israeli officials have said there are no plans for a meeting between the two.

China has tried to keep firm ties with both Israel and the Palestinian Authority, while supporting Palestinian demands for statehood and occasionally chiding the Israeli government for its policies toward the Palestinians. But China has shown scant appetite for a major role as a broker in that and other conflicts in the Middle East.

A spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying, told reporters in Beijing last week that ‘‘if the Palestinian and Israeli leaders want to meet each other in China, we will happily provide the necessary assistance.”

China “supports the Palestinian and Israeli sides in resolving their differences and disputes through peace talks,’’ Ms. Hua said at a news briefing. ‘‘China’s reception of the Palestinian and Israeli leaders for visits is also a part of these efforts.”

But Mr. Netanyahu will arrive in Beijing on Wednesday, after Mr. Abbas leaves Tuesday night, according to Israeli government officials who said there would be no encounter in China between the two leaders.

Mr. Netanyahu will first visit Shanghai, where he arrives on Monday. The last visit to China by an Israeli prime minister was by Ehud Olmert in 2007.

Before his visit, Mr. Abbas told Xinhua, China’s state-run news agency, that he would ask China ‘‘to use its relationship with Israel to remove the obstacles that obstruct the Palestinian economy.”

The Palestinian Authority, led by Mr. Abbas, has limited control over the West Bank. It has been in financial distress, in part because of shrinking donations from foreign supporters and Israel’s withholding of tax revenue transfers in response to Mr. Abbas’s bid for enhanced status for the Palestinians at the United Nations.

Israeli’s diplomatic dealings with China are dominated by broader Middle Eastern security concerns, especially Iran’s disputed nuclear program and the worsening violence in Syria. Those two issues are likely to feature in Mr. Netanyahu’s talks with the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, Prime Minister Li Keqiang and other officials.

As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, China has backed resolutions aimed at pressing Iran to curtail nuclear activities that Israel, the United States and other Western governments say are aimed at giving Iran the means to make nuclear weapons. But China is a major buyer of Iranian oil, and has criticized Western governments’ unilateral sanctions aimed at curtailing that oil trade.

China has stood alongside Russia in resisting Western calls for stronger intervention in the Syrian conflict, instead arguing that there is still hope of a negotiated solution.
