MFN status to Pakistan withdrawn import ban port curbs on the cards

first_imgArun Jaitle, Finance Minister. Photo: PTI   –  PTi SHARE SHARE EMAIL At least 37 CRPF personnel killed as explosives-laden vehicle rams into bus in J&K Published on RELATED Jammu and Kashmir India today withdrew the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status it had accorded Pakistan in trade in a move to “isolate’’ the country following Thursday’s terrorist attack in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir that killed about 40 CRPF officers.“The government will now identify items imported from Pakistan on which duties can be raised since it is no longer bound by the MFN rules. Other measures such as import ban and port restrictions will also be considered. This exercise will be carried out at the highest level,” a government official told BusinessLine.Opposition parties, including the Congress, pledged support to the efforts of the Centre in dealing with the situation after the Pulwama attack, although Congress President Rahul Gandhi refused to comment specifically on the MFN withdrawal.New Delhi had granted Islamabad the MFN status way back in 1996 to abide by World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules, which lay down that each member shall apply uniform import tariff on all members and no country will be discriminated against. Pakistan is yet to extend the same status to India, but over the last decade, it has removed import restrictions on a majority of Indian products.“The Ministry of External Affairs will launch an all-out effort to ensure the complete isolation of Pakistan for having a direct hand in this gruesome terrorist attack,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said, addressing the media following a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security on Friday.

Saharanpur and Bijnor splitting hairs over a splitSaharanpur and Bijnor splitting hairs

first_imgPublished on COMMENTS COMMENT Imran Masood, the Congress’s best bet in Western Uttar Pradesh, is more interested in attacking his rival candidate from the Grand Alliance, BSP leader Hazi Fazalur Rahman, in Saharanpur.He tells the crowd in every corner meeting that it is he who fights the BJP at the ground. He reminds them that he lost the 2014 election by 65,000 votes in the ‘Narendra Modi wave’. Indications are that the Muslim votes, for which Masood and Rahman are staking claim, will not split in 2019.In the huge rally of the Grand Alliance, leaders Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav made separate appeals to the Muslim voters to not allow a split in their votes. “Don’t fall for emotional promises. Don’t allow splitting of your votes. I appeal to you that the re-election of the BJP in Saharanpur should be stopped,” Mayawati said.Masood, however, is confident of a victory. Talking to BusinessLine during his campaign, Masood said there is no confusion among the voters.“The difference between the Congress and the BSP in 2014 was 1.5 lakh votes. So people know who are with them during the bad times. The BSP candidate was not even in Uttar Pradesh when Dalits were beaten up, Muslims were denied jobs and farmers were thrown out of their fields,” Masood said.BJP hoping for Muslim votesBut things may not work as Masood thinks.A senior Muslim cleric told BusinessLine on the condition of anonymity that the Muslim votes may not split this time. “In 2014, the BJP created such a situation that the value of a Muslim’s vote was zero. It will not repeat this time,” the influential cleric said.The BJP is also hopeful that the split in the Opposition camp will help its young MP, Raghav Lakhanpal Sharma, to secure a second term. The sizeable Muslim population has been a hindrance to the BJP in the communally-sensitive constituency.“But this time, we will have a smooth ride. A lot of Muslims are joining the BJP. The Opposition is trying to polarise votes, but it’s helping us,” said Gaurav Garg, BJP’s spokesperson for the seat.In Bijnor too, BSP’s Malook Naagar faces tough challenge from the Congress’s Naseemuddin Siddiqui in the fight against the BJP’s Kunwar Bharatendra Singh. A former lieutenant of Mayawati, Siddiqui knows where to cut votes. “The Congress is engaged in a dangerous politics,” Naagar said.But the alliance is hopeful that the Muslim votes will come to Naagar and help him win.Click here for more information on Elections 2019 Uttar Pradesh elections April 07, 2019 SHARE SHARE SHARE EMAILlast_img read more

Caste lines drawn Muslim barbers in Moradabad refuse haircuts to Dalits

first_imgCaste lines drawn, Muslim barbers in Moradabad refuse haircuts to DalitsDalits in Peepalsana village under Bhojpur police station in Moradabad district have alleged that barbers in their village are refusing to entertain them at their shops.advertisement Sharad Gautam MoradabadJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 15:50 IST Photo for representational purpose. (Photo: Reuters)The police and administration in Moradabad district of Uttar Pradesh are having a tough time as some Muslim barbers have refused to cut hair of Dailts from their village. In turn, the Dalits have approached police and the district magistrate alleging caste-based discrimination.Dalits in Peepalsana village under Bhojpur police station in Moradabad district have alleged that barbers in their village are refusing to entertain them at their shops. After receiving their complaints, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Moradabad, Amit Pathak formed a joint team comprising cops and local district officials to investigate the matter. The SSP said if the allegations are found true, action will be taken under relevant laws.THE CASEDalits in Peepalsana village have complained they are facing caste-based discrimination at the hands of barbers, who are Muslims. Following the complaint, all barbers have shut their shops in protest. They have been arguing that if they entertain Dalit customers at their shops, members of their own community will stop visiting them. Peepalsana is reportedly a Muslim majority village.WHAT DALITS SAYDalit elders in the village say they have suffered discrimination in their lives but they want the new generation to live freely. They say this caste-based discrimination must end. Dalits in the village said their children are discriminated when they visit saloons run by Muslims.They say their children are getting educated and in the changing world everyone must be allowed to live with dignity. Dalits said police and district administration have assured them that the matter will be resolved.Kallan, a Dalit elder, said, “They [Muslim barbers] hate us. This is why they have shut their shops. Our sons are not getting married because people look down upon us. They mock at us because we can’t take haircuts in the village saloons. No one wants to marry their daughters to our kids because of this.”Anil Kumar, a Dalit youth, said, “All our relatives humiliate us because we are refused haircuts in our own village. Police negotiated the matter and the barbers agreed that will allow us to avail services. But now they have shut their shops. We have to travel long distances to get haircuts. Our problem must be resolved.”WHAT MUSLIMS SAYSpeaking to India Today TV, Naushad, a local resident, said, “Dalits never used to visit barber shops here. They would take services from a barber shop run by a Dalit in Bhojpur. But now they want to get haircuts here. The barbers were clueless when cops took them to the police station. There they came to know that Dalits have complained against them. I am 45 years old and in my lifetime no Dalit ever took a haircut in our shops. They used to visit the shop in Bhojpur.”He said family members of the barbers are worried as these shops are their only source of income. “If Dalits take haircut and shave in these shops, the towels will become dirty. How will other Muslims take haircuts after that?” he said.Meanwhile, not just the barbers, even other Muslims are opposing the entry of Dalits in these barber shops. They said Dalits should visit the barber shop they have been using all these years.”This is Muslim-majority village with 95 per cent Muslim population. Today they [Dalits] are demanding entry in saloons, tomorrow they will start booking marriage halls. There are some people who want to create chaos here. The village has been peaceful for decades. This matter is being raised with ulterior motives,” said Ali Ahmed.Gulam Gaus, another local resident, said the village has always has been peaceful.”Hindus and Muslims here have never had any enmity. We want peace and won’t let anyone vitiate it. As far as saloon service for Dalits, people here don’t want them to visit the saloons in the village.
