time,when the USA Muslim citizens are facing the growing menace of Islamophobia it may gratify us that President Obama steered clear of any talk whatsoever of radical Islamism or extremist jihadism He simply declared this horrific slaughter as an “act of hate” and “act of terror” of no particular disposition Viewed this way it is indeed welcome But there is a disturbing aspect in it Is the American establishment maintaining expediency in a pragmatic effort to shun growing Islamophobia or is it willfully silent over the violent jihadism playing havoc across the region Omar Mateen gunned down 50 people at Orlando nightclub on Sunday AP Isn’t it by the way an appeasement to its historical ally the Saudi-Wahhabi nation state which actually founded and promulgated the theocratic notion of God’s rule over the earth What Islamic Stateis trying to establish today is a complete replica of the Saudi-Wahhabi nation state The virulent and violent jihadism led by the Islamic Stateideologues which is resulting into hateful acts is a complete ideology of world domination It bears striking similarity to Wahhabism the state religion of Saudi Arabia which once led the global jihad against the non-Muslims in general and particularly the moderate Muslims of the world who adhered to democracy and liberal Islamic values It’s important to note that the problem is common albeit baffling The issue is radical Islamism which spearheaded in Saudi Arabia an age-old ally of America but has turned now against themselves It should not be surprising then that the anti-democrat jihadist ideologues have declared not only the American and European democratic countries but also the greater Muslim world which unanimously endorsed the secular authority of the Security Council of the UNO as ‘an ally of the anti-Christ evil’ In an issue of “Dabiq” Islamic State’s online propaganda magazine in English an Islamic Stateideologue wrote that Saudi Arabia Egypt Iran Malaysia Syria Yemen among other Muslim countries are aulia-us shaitan (allies of Satan) Furthermore the radical religious zealots of Islamic Statealso peddle hatred against the foreign Muslims living in the western countries and contributing to their civilizations civil services and scientific and academic progression They equally abhor the Western and European Muslims who play the role of their citizenship by voting in their elections or contesting their elections through a democratic or republican party or pledging their allegiance to the elected president or prime minister Recently the Islamic Statereleased a hit list of the ‘apostates among Muslims’ which included spiritually inclined Muslim leaders human rights activists civil servants moderate Islamic scholars spiritual leaders and imams interfaith advocates and particularly noted Indo-American Muslims majoring in politics media and journalism academia and other modern and secular lawful pursuits in the western countries It appeared in the latest issue of its jihadist mouthpiece the online English monthly magazine entitled "Dabiq" The reason why Islamic Statewants to brutally kill the listed Western Muslims as it clearly stated is ‘apostasy’ or what is called irtidad in the Islamic jurisprudence One who turns apostate is declared murtad the gravest sinner in Islam However it should be noted Islamic Statedoes not label ‘apostasy’ only on those who leave Islam for Judaism Hinduism Christianity or other religions but also on those Muslims who do not subscribe to Wahhabism the religion which Islamic Stateprofesses The only treatment that can be meted out to an apostate as punishment is his/her death as the jihadist magazine Dabiq states It further writes: “The person who calls himself a “Muslim” but unapologetically commits blatant kufr (disbelief or denial) is not a hypocrite (munafiq) as some mistakenly claim Rather he is an apostate (murtadd)" It is not difficult to recall the recently released video in which the Islamic Statespokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani called on the jihadist fighters to ‘get prepared be ready and to make it a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers especially for the fighters and supporters of the caliphate in Europe and America’ Mateen might have driven an inspiration from the propaganda that martyrdom during the ongoing month of Ramadan was more valuable than that made at other times While Mateen killed 50 non-Muslims in a crazy bid to make it ‘a month of calamity everywhere for nonbelievers’ there are many brainless jihadists who are constantly on the lookout for ‘a sacred opportunity’ to behead the Muslims who have now become ‘murtad'(apostates) in their view So the consequent ‘Muslim-bashing’ is not going be any help for the Western liberal democrats Just as we cannot blame all Republicans or Democrats for the systematic violence that a handful of them have waged at different points in American history similarly we must remember not to blame all members of a particular faith tradition for what Mateen has done in Orlando But at the same time the entire Muslim community must feel impelled to dismantle the religious justifications of the nefarious violent extremism perpetrated by the radical hyenas inspired by an anti-pluralism and anti-democracy ideology The author is aresearcher in Culture & Communication Studies anda frequent commentator on muslim

year that fashion designer Ritu Beri bagged a contract to redesign the uniforms of employees of the Indian Railways While the news was met with congratulatory messages for Beri for the most part there was a section of the fashion fraternity that wondered just how she had got the contract — the biggest ever to be granted to an individual designer Ritu Beri Image from IBNlive In fact a blog post titled ‘Sarkari Begum’ which went viral on social media hinted that it was proximity to those in power rather than talent or design reputation that may have been at play Beri did not immediately respond to the row Now reports state that the designer has submitted four "themes" for the consideration of the Indian Railways around which the new uniforms will be created The first theme draws from tribal art the second from "rustic coins" the third from the "age of the nawabs" and the fourth by pop art Beri has recommended that employees and other stakeholders in the Railways be included in a competition that will help decide which of the themes they would like the uniforms to be based on In an e-mail interaction to IANS Beri said "I believe that the uniform of an institution creates the necessary image that is desired to uplift its perception and impact so I offered to do my bit by creating a new look for the staff of the Indian Railways" "I am honoured to contribute in my own way to help create an image for the Indian Railways I will not be charging for my services" added the celebrated designer who was among the first few Indian designers to showcase at the Paris Fashion Week Talking about the designs for the uniform Beri who is popular for her clean cuts and sharp tailoring of western silhouettes says the work is in progress "The work on the uniform designs is in progress I shall share details once everything is finalised For now we have made the first presentation We have worked very hard for two months and researched on various possibilities" she said The designer will be working with Khadi and the "idea is to create uniforms that are attractive impactful and comfortable all at the same time" Talking about the cuts and silhouettes she plans to use Beri said: "The uniforms will be Indo-western in cut and silhouette with comfort being the most important factor We have presented many options of themes inspirations colour palettes and silhouettes- which are attractive and eye catching" But she wishes to have a traditional touch "I wish to retain our traditional look but give it a modern twist in keeping with the time of today Comfort of the uniforms is also key" said Beri adding that "the look of the uniforms will be an ode to India and the country’s exoticism" In April this year Beri launched two books: The Designs of a Restless Mind and The Fire of a Restless Mind With inputs from IANS Published Date: Jul 27 2016 12:14 PM | Updated Date: Jul 27 2016 18:05 PM tags: #Fashion #indian designers #Indian Railways #Ritu Beri #Ritu Beri Indian

had entered an electronics showroom in northeast Delhi’s Karawal Nagar area on Saturday While five of them managed to flee one was left behind bleeding and died at the hospital police said The man Ashok Kumar went to the showroom after he got a call from the shopowner who told him that a ‘sensor’ indicated someone had entered the building The showroom’s owner Akash Jain requested Kumar to check if everything was okay The accused who died has been identified as Danish (27) a native of Welcome who was allegedly involved in five criminal cases in the area Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northeast) A K Singla said “Danish was an accused in five criminal cases We are looking for his accomplices We will honour Kumar for his brave act His gun has been seized for investigations” Kumar had reportedly purchased the gun in 1992 after his brother was shot dead Polices sources said the men entered Jain Enterprises around 2 am and a message went out to Jain on his mobile phone Jain had

am Workers give finishing touches to the Hauz Khas interchange station (Express Photo by Praveen Khanna) Top News Across gate number 3 of Hauz Khas Metro station and almost 10 floors down workers in reflector jackets and helmets give finishing touches to the upcoming Hauz Khas interchange station adjacent to the existing one It’s the last leg of the job — while some are putting in place lighting fixtures on the platform others are painting the ceiling These are Friday morning scenes from the project that is set to end the nightmare commute between Gurgaon and Noida — reducing travel time by 40 minutes — and possibly take the load off the heavily-burdened Rajiv Chowk station currently the most crowded interchange station in the capital With the Yellow Line (HUDA City Centre-Samaypur Badli) already crossing Hauz Khas station the interchange station will become a pit-stop for the upcoming Magenta Line The ridership on the Yellow Line was 27053776 in June 2017 the DMRC said “Currently a Metro journey from HUDA City Centre to Noida’s Botanical Garden takes about 90 minutes with an interchange at Rajiv Chowk With the interchange station at Hauz Khas the travel time will be about 50 minutes” Anuj Dayal executive director corporate communications Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) said The line is expected to be operational in phases between October 2017 and March 2018 Sharing the load The Rajiv Chowk Metro interchange station which became operational in 2005 now sees a footfall of 5 lakh people a day While it has changed the face of Connaught Place making the heart of Delhi more accessible it has also had to bear with an ever-increasing influx of commuters who need to switch lines The Hauz Khas project is expected to change that Ravi Gadepalli an expert on sustainable passenger and freight transport systems explained “The DMRC follows a radial pattern which is also how the city is planned Having interchange stations helps commuters” P K Sarkar professor of Transport Planning at the School of Planning and Architecture too called another interchange station “a welcome move as it saves time for those travelling long distances” For instance a commuter on the Yellow Line going from Gurgaon to Kalkaji will have to travel 13 km less if he changes metros at Hauz Khas instead of Rajiv Chowk Dayal too said the commuting time “will significantly reduce as those travelling from Gurgaon and intending to go to Nehru Place Kalkaji and other areas will not have to go all the way to Rajiv Chowk” At the moment there are nine interchange stations on the Metro system — Rajiv Chowk Kashmere Gate Central Secretariat Inderlok Ashok Park Main Yamuna Bank Dwarka Sector 21 New Delhi and Kirti Nagar With Phase III — comprising the Magenta and Pink (Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar) lines — set to become operational by March 2018 the number of interchange stations will grow to 23 with Hauz Khas being the most pivotal The current footfall of Hauz Khas station is 40000 per day This figure is expected to rise to 169414 once the interchange station is functional “Since both the Blue and Yellow lines make pit-stops at Rajiv Chowk making it one of the busiest stations it will be helpful once the Hauz Khas interchange station opens up” Sarkar said Tough task Experts however believe it will have little impact on road traffic “Studies done in the past indicate that road traffic goes down by 2-3% The change will be seen immediately but studies have shown it is temporary” said Dr E Madhu principal scientist CSIR Central Road Research Institute He said that “the reason behind this is the rapid vehicular growth” “While the Metro is branching to various parts of the city the pace at which the number of cars is increasing doesn’t change the traffic situation” Gadepalli added that “the solution lies in increasing the number of buses” A hiccup for the station could be the lack of parking space “There is no land available” Dayal said “However the station is right on the Outer Ring Road and is well connected by buses and other modes of transport” The magnitude of the interchange station is evident by the fact that it has been under construction since 2013 which was done in five phases The new five-level station built at a depth of 29 metres will be connected to the existing one through a 40-metre subway “The present station is 17 metres deep and the foundation is 32 metres There is also the foundation of the flyover on Outer Ring Road If the new station had to be constructed below the existing one we would have had to go deep up to 42 metres which would have been difficult That’s why the new station is adjacent to the existing one” explained a DMRC official DMRC’s eagerly awaited Unattended Train Operations-enabled trains will ply on this route and the new signalling system called Communication Based Train Control will also be implemented on the Magenta Line “The frequency of the trains will increase and the waiting period will go down to 90-100 seconds from two minutes” said a DMRC official The tunnelling for the new station was done using advanced tunnel boring machines One of the challenges the DMRC encountered was the tunnel of the existing station To “prevent any movement of the existing tunnel a ‘D wall’ was constructed around it to provide support while the new tunnel was being built To prevent vibration ‘floating tracks’ were installed in tunnels” a Metro official said Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus Metro station (Express Photo by Praveen Khanna) Pink Line to bring North South campuses closer While the spirit of oneupmanship between Delhi University’s North and South campuses may not end anytime soon the upcoming Pink Line (Majlis Park-Shiv Vihar) is set to bring the two closer Metres away from Sri Venkateswara College is the under-construction Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus Metro station Nearby are two other well-known DU colleges — Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma College and Ram Lal Anand College A DMRC official at the site explained: “Those commuting to North Campus can take the Pink Line from this station and get down at Azadpur which is 10 stations away From there they can switch to the Yellow Line; two stations away is Vishwavidyalaya” The Pink Line is the DMRC’s longest Metro corridor — 5859 km — and boasts 38 stations A portion of the Line — from Majlis Park to South Campus — is expected to be operational by December 2017 Sections from South Campus to Mayur Vihar I and Trilokpuri to Shiv Vihar will open by March 2018 On Friday DMRC began full signalling trials on the 20-km stretch from Majlis Park to the swanky South Campus station Part of Phase III all stations of the Pink Line just like the Magenta Line have platform screen doors The new trains also follow the Communication Based Train Control signalling system “which will enable the movement of trains with a frequency of about 90 to 100 seconds” These trains will run on Unattended Train Operations mode commonly called “driverless trains” On a Thursday afternoon students from neighbouring colleges throng the busy Satya Niketan market that has cosy cafes and delis Some like Bhavna Yadav a first-year student of Economics (Hons) have travelled all the way from North Campus “I took the Yellow Line from Vishwavidyalaya and got down at AIIMS Then I took an auto for Rs 60 The journey cost Rs 100 but once this station opens up it will become more affordable” said Yadav Anushka a first-year student of BCom (Programme) at Ram Lal Anand College said “I come from Gurgaon every day and the journey pinches the pocket This station will make life easier” Arun (28) who manages a cafe in Satya Niketan said the station would mean better business: “It may not be the next Kamla Nagar but it will certainly give business a boost” The South Campus and Dhaula Kuan stations will also be connected via a travelator — the longest one by the DMRC The 900m-long foot overbridge will have 24 travelators according to DMRC “Commuters can take the travelator from the South Campus platform directly to the platform of Dhaula Kuan station for the Airport Express Line This is the first time a travelator is connecting two different stations” a DMRC official said At the starting point the travelator’s height is 13 metres from the ground DMRC is also building a 300m-long travelator at the
