AIMIM President Owaisi Terms Union Minister’s Statement As “Unfortunate” April 22, 2017 17:55

The statement made by the Union Minister for Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad, has been termed as “unfortunate” by the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi. Ravi Shankar stated that the Centre have given the Muslims “proper sanctity”, and inspite of that they do not vote for the party. Owaisi said, it is our constitution who has given the Muslims proper sanctity, and not Ravi Shankar Prasad. Owaisi said, “We gave them sanctity? Who are “We”? It is the Constitution that has given rights, our rights are protected under that.” The AIMIM leader, asserting that the Constitution is supreme, said that the work of the Union Minister is to implement those constitutional rights. “In a democratic country like India, we have got the full freedom to select our leaders. Ravi Shankar needs to understand that the Constitution is supreme,” said Owaisi. While addressing at the Hero Mindmine Summit, Prasad asked, “We have got thirteen chief ministers of our own. Have we witnessed any Muslim gentleman working in the industry or service? We don't get Muslim votes. I acknowledge very clearly, but have we given them proper sanctity or not?” The statements made by the Union Minister on Muslims were supported by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy, who termed them correct.

BJP Leader Subramanian Swamy Supports Union Minister Prasad’s Statement On Muslims April 22, 2017 17:37

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy, has backed the statement made by the Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Muslims, and termed it correct. Ravi Shankar Prasad stated that, “despite the government giving them “proper sanctity”, the Muslims do not vote for the BJP. Swamy said, “He is correct and that is the correct constitutional procedure because once the election has taken place and you have got a mandate, then we are government of hundred percent people, that includes Muslims. So after that, we don't see who all have voted and who haven't. So what Ravi Shankar Prasad is saying is correct.” The Union Minister, who addressed a Mindmine Summit on friday, said, “We have got thirteen chief ministers of our own. Have we witnessed any Muslim gentleman working in the industry or service? We don't get Muslim votes. I acknowledged very clearly, but have we given them proper sanctity or not?” Prasad quipped, “We have a problem with some of our friends. Mostly, the Leftist friends and journalists who entertain a pathological hatred of Narendra Modi. Good luck to them.” The Union Minister also stated that, Left is “left out” all over the world and has also faced defeat in India. “They are left out in Bengal, are surviving in Kerala and Tripura, but the Left has got a very good campus in Delhi, which is the JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) and I always say the Left also needs some consolation prize. So, JNU is their consolation prize, we do not mind that,” Prasad said. BJP President Amit Shah Assures LK Advani After SC Order On Babri Case By Supraja

US Prez Administration Removes Indo-American Surgeon General From Position April 22, 2017 15:29

To put its own leadership in place, the US President, Donald Trump’s administration has removed Indian-American Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, from his position. Murthy was appointed by the former President Barack Obama during his regime. The US Department of Health and Human Services, in a statement, yesterday said, “The leader of the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, Murthy was asked to resign from his duties as Surgeon General, after serving in a smooth transition into the new Trump administration. The statement continued, “Murthy has been relieved of his duties as Surgeon General and will continue to serve as a member of the Commissioned Corps.” Murthy (39) said in a Facebook post that it was an honor and privilege to work for this prestigious position. He was the 19th Surgeon General and the first Indian American to hold this position. He said “Being the grandson of a poor farmer from India, and to be asked by the President to look out for the health of an entire nation, was a humbling and uniquely American story. I will always be grateful to our country for welcoming my immigrant family nearly 40 years ago and giving me this opportunity to serve.” Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent- Adams, who is the current Deputy Surgeon General, will replace Murthy. Health and Human Services Secretary (Tom) Prince thanked Murthy for his dedicated service to the nation. Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams, apart from being the acting Surgeon General will assume leadership of the US Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. Interestingly, Murthy is the second Indian-American to be removed by the Trump administration from a senior position. US Attorney from New York Preet Bharara, was the first one, to be fired after he refused to resign. Murthy on his Facebook post wrote, “As my colleague Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams takes over as Acting Surgeon General, know that our nation is in capable and compassionate hands. Thank you, America, for the privilege of a lifetime. I have been truly humbled and honored to serve as your Surgeon General. I look forward to working alongside you in new ways in the years to come.” “While I had hoped to do more to help our nation tackle its biggest health challenges, I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to have served,” Murthy said. Murthy said, “The role of the Surgeon General is traditionally to share wisdom with others, but it was I who learned so much by listening to your stories in town halls and living rooms. In a remote fishing village in Alaska, a church in Alabama, an American Indian reservation in Oklahoma, a school in Virginia, and in so many other places, I watched the grit and grace with which our fellow Americans live their lives.” Despite stiff resistance by the pro-gun lobby led by the National Rifle Association, Murthy in December 2014, was confirmed by the Senate  by 51 to 43 votes. The surgeon general was appointed for a four year term. At 37, he was the youngest ever Surgeon General. The Surgeon General’s parents hail originally from Karnataka, India. His birth place was Huddersfield, England and the family relocated to Miami, Florida when he was three years old. Murthy from the Yale School of Medicine received a Master’s degree and pursued MBA in Health Care Management from the Yale School of Management. Murthy is presently a practicing physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, as well as the Hospitalist Attending Physician and Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School.

AIADMK Factions Seal Merger; OPS Back As CM April 22, 2017 14:41

The two rival factions of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazagham (AIADMK) in Tamil Nadu’s ruling party have reportedly finalized the merger deal, and reinstate rebel leader, O Paneerselvam (OPS) as the Chief Minister (CM). The current Chief Minister EK Palaniswami will step down and take the position of the party’s General Secretary, replacing V.K. Sasikala. A senior leader of the AIADMK has reportedly revealed the ongoing developments towards the merger. The ruling AIADMK faction sealed the deal due to “vulnerable state of the government”. The senior leaders of both the factions will soon meet and finalize the deal. The merger is likely to be announced on Monday. “Health Minister, C Vijayabaskar, whose properties were raided by the Income Tax officials, may be expelled from the cabinet. Ex-Minister and MLA Senthil Balaji, along with one or two more faces from Southern Tamil Nadu, may be introduced in the cabinet. Meanwhile, other leaders in the ruling faction have started to distance themselves from Sasikala and her nephew TTV Dinakaran. The talks for the merger of the two factions was witnessed last Monday, when Dinakaran was booked for allegedly offering bribe to an Election Commission official, to obtain the party’s poll symbol of “two leaves” in a by-election to the R K Nagar Assembly seat in Tamil Nadu. Yesterday, both the factions of the AIADMK formed committees to discuss the merger. The panel of OPS was headed by Ex-AIADMK Minister KP Munuswamy, which also includes senior leaders Mafoi Pandiarajan and V Maitreyan. Palaniswamy had formed a seven-member committee which will be headed by Rajya Sabha MP R Vaithiyalingam, and includes ministers C Sreenivasan, KA Sengottaiyan and D Jayakumar among others. The Panneerselvam camp had on Thursday demanded that the faction led by Palanisamy formally expel Sasikala and Dhinakaran, besides about 30 other members of their family from the party. Dhinakaran, following the revolt from his party, had said he was “stepping aside” in the interest of the party. KP Munusamy, a top leader in the OPS camp, said the first demand was getting the resignation of Sasikala and Dinakaran and later their formal expulsion. The OPS camp, also sought a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) inevstigation into the circumstances, leading to Ex-Chief Minister and late Jayalalithaa’s death on December 5 last year.

An Indian-origin doctor and his wife were arrested and charged today, for allegedly helping another Indian-origin doctor perform female genital mutilations (FGM) in the US. The accused Fakhruddin Attar (53), and his wife, Farida Attar (50) who reside in Michigan State, were held conspiracy charges to perform FGM on minor girls, out of Fakhruddin Attar’s medical clinic in Livonia, a city in Michigan. The criminal charges come after a week , when Indian-origin doctor Jumana Nagarwala (44) of the same state, was charged with performing FGM on minor girls. Ms Nagarwala and the Attars are believed to be the first people charged under federal US law, which criminalizes FGM. In US, it is illegal to perform genital mutilation on anyone under the age of 18 years. Fakhruddin has done his graduation from the Baroda Medical College in Gujarat, India in 1988. According to the charges, Ms Nagarwala used to perform the medical procedure on minor girls at Burhani Medical Clinic (BMC) in Michigan, This medical clinic was owned and operated by Fakruddin, where his wife Farida, was an officer manager employed at BMC. The compliant received against the Attars said, that the couple arranged and assisted in the FGM of minor girls, performed by Nagarwala. Farida used to assist Nagarwala, in their clinic during the FGM procedures. Fakhruddin revealed the federal agents that, he knew Nagarwala, who used to occasionally see patients at his clinic, even though she was not employed there. Nagarwala would visit the patients at BMC, when the clinic was closed, and Farida used to be available at the examining room, while Nagarwala performed the FGM procedures. As per the investigations, many minor girls informed forensic personnel and revealed that Nagarwala, performed procedures on their genitals, and one minor girl admitted that Farida had been present when Ms Nagarwala did the FGM procedures. According to the complaint, most of the minor victims who allegedly traveled interstate, to have the FGM procedures performed, were approximately six to eight years old. Since 1997, the number of girls under 18, at risk for FGM, in the US has quadrupled. According to, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention”, estimation, around 513,000 women and girls are at risk of FGM in the US. In 1996, the US Congress passed a law, making it illegal to perform genital mutilation or cutting of the genital organs, in the US on anyone under the age of 18. However FGM is not a crime in 26 US states, including Michigan. Indian Origin Female Doctor Charged With Genital Mutilation In The US By Supraja
