Digvijay remarks on BJP ISI links shameful and condemnable Sambit Patra

first_imgNew Delhi: Hitting out at Congress leader Digvijay Singh for alleging a link between the BJP and Pakistani spy agency ISI, the saffron party on Tuesday dubbed his charge as “shameful and condemnable” and sought an apology from Congress president Sonia Gandhi. In a video, Singh was purportedly heard saying at an interaction that the BJP has links with the ISI and that non-Muslims spy more for Pakistan than Muslims. At a press conference, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra accused the Congress of trying to polarise society on communal lines and asked why Singh had to divide people on religious lines while mentioning ISI.

He said Singh is among the “navaratna” (nine jewels) of the Congress who have played a key role in its massive defeat in elections. In reality Congress leaders such as Rahul Gandhi, Mani Shankar Aiyar and Ghulam Nabi Azad, besides Singh, are “navaratna”of Pakistan and it would be proud of them, Patra said.last_img read more

Nova Scotia budget expected to lay groundwork for election call

first_imgHALIFAX – Nova Scotia’s Liberal government is expected to present a balanced budget Thursday that many believe will lay the groundwork for an election call that could come as early as this weekend.A government source familiar with the fiscal document said it will contain $2.4 million in annual funding for two existing medical programs, a move that appears aimed at defusing public anger about the provincial government’s inability to keep a promise to provide every family in the province with a doctor.“That will help 50 new family doctors (net) who can practise in the system each year,” the source told The Canadian Press.The funding would create 10 new seats in the family residency program at Dalhousie University and open 10 new spaces in the ready assessment program, which assists international doctors in establishing practices in Nova Scotia.The government has unleashed a flurry of announcements in the last seven weeks, totalling in the tens of millions of dollars, which has led to speculation about a trip to the polls, which Premier Stephen McNeil has done little to squelch.McNeil, who has refused to rule out an election before a legislative vote on the budget, stuck to his script on Wednesday.When asked whether the budget would be a real document without a house vote on the estimates, McNeil was clear.“The day it is introduced it’s considered to be a real budget, even those that have been defeated. This is a real budget. It’s a thoughtful plan and it reflects the hard work of Nova Scotians over the last three-and-a-half years.”Last month, Finance Minister Randy Delorey committed to a balanced budget for 2017-18, on the heels of a forecasted surplus of $12.1 million for 2016-17.But Progressive Conservative Leader Jamie Baillie did his best Wednesday to cast doubt on those claims.Baillie said although the document would be presented as balanced, it likely won’t account for certain expenses, such as the coming legal fight over Bill 75, which imposed a contract on the province’s 9,300 unionized teachers.“That exact action in British Columbia cost the taxpayers there hundreds of millions of dollars when the courts finally settled it,” said Baillie. “It would be irresponsible to table a budget that doesn’t account for the significant legal costs the McNeil government has exposed us all to, but I do think that’s what’s going to happen.”The Tory leader said he expects the Liberals to table the budget and then dissolve the house to call Nova Scotians to the polls. He said it would be wrong not to subject the budget to its usual scrutiny.“They don’t want Nova Scotians to see what they’ve done until after an election,” he said.NDP Leader Gary Burrill said such a move would be “undemocratic and sneaky.”Burrill also lamented the government’s expressed intent to table another balanced budget.“That fills me with foreboding that the investments that are needed … are not going to be made,” he said.During a speech last month to the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, Delorey revealed the budget would see a rise in the threshold for the small business income tax rate to $500,000 from $350,000. The move would shift more than 1,000 companies into a lower income tax bracket, paying rates of three per cent rather than 16 per cent on their income.last_img read more

Florida governor offers no transfer hope for Canadian jailed 31 years

first_imgTORONTO – The governor of Florida offered no glimmer of hope on Wednesday to family and supporters of a Canadian man who wants to be transferred to Canada after 31 years in prison in the Sunshine State.While the federal government has formally agreed to allow William Russell (Russ) Davies to serve out his life sentence for first-degree murder in Canada, the state of Florida has consistently refused to let him go.“In our state, we are very focused on our victims and their families,” Gov. Rick Scott said. “There’s a process in our state you have to go through.”Scott, who was at Toronto’s Union Station to urge Canadians to visit his state, refused to discuss the situation further.Davies, 49, of Richmond Hill, Ont., was barely 18 years old in June 1986 when the self-admitted misfit was accused along with five others of gunning down an acquaintance in Tomoka State Park near Daytona Beach, Fla. Two years later, in a seven-hour trial some have denounced as a sham, a jury convicted him of first-degree murder.A Canadian Press investigation published last year revealed the state’s key witness — one of five co-accused who all pleaded out in exchange for probation or short sentences — admitted to having been drunk and urinating out of a car window at the time of the night-time crime. In addition, Davies’ public defender Carmen Corrente, now an assistant attorney general, made numerous mistakes at trial.His ailing parents and a representative had requested a brief meeting with Scott during his visit to Toronto but the governor refused.Shane Martinez, a lawyer who has recently taken on the case, said Wednesday he had hoped Scott would “do the right thing and have compassion” by allowing Davies to transfer under an international treaty to Canada to serve out his sentence.“Canada has approved (the transfer) but Florida has been silent so far,” Martinez said.A spokeswoman for the Florida governor in charge of prisoner transfers has repeatedly said Davies’ request was “pending.” In recent weeks, he has said he was visited by “officials” and signed what Davies termed “pre-release” papers.Enza Davies, his sister-in-law on hand at the station for Scott’s visit, said Davies has turned his life around and would have strong support if allowed to return to Canada.“It would be a very good thing if he could come on Canadian soil and we could visit him regularly,” Enza Davies said. “His parents are too ill now to travel, so it’s really important that they see him.”Davies, who has always denied firing the fatal shot, has little hope for parole in Florida, and his best hope of getting back onto the streets is in Canada.In a recent interview, Davies’ 74-year-old mother, Carol Davies, choked back tears as she pondered Florida’s intransigence.“Why can’t you bring him back?” Davies said. “Why are you keeping him? There’s no reason that kid should still be there.”last_img read more

Utilities commission seeks more data on Site C before final recommendation

first_imgVANCOUVER – The BC Utilities Commission has released a preliminary report into the future of the controversial $8.8-billion Site C dam project in the province’s northeast.But the commission said in its report released late Wednesday night that it does not have enough information in several areas to recommend whether the project should proceed.BC Hydro has said it has already spent $1.8 billion on construction for the massive hydroelectric dam, but Premier John Horgan’s NDP government asked the commission to review the economic viability of the project after taking office.The panel did conclude in its preliminary report that as of June 30 when BC Hydro submitted its must recent quarter-end report, the project was on track for its planned completion in 2024, but did not have enough data to determine whether the project is currently on budget,It also said it also does not have sufficient information to predict possible budget overruns once the Site C project is complete, or the total costs for the project in the event it is suspended and restarted later.Hydro’s 866-page submission to the commission said completing the dam as planned would still be best for ratepayers and terminating the project would cost $7.3 billion on a present-value basis.The commission also warned Wednesday night that if a diversion of the Peace River is not achieved in September 2019, the project will not stay within its budget.The commission said it will now conduct an “extensive consultation process” on the preliminary findings and submit a final recommendation on Nov. 1.The BC Hydro submission said demand for electricity is growing and without the dam, the province will face an energy shortfall by 2031.A report submitted for the commission’s review by the auditing firm Deloitte LLP concluded that putting the project on hold until 2025 would cost about $1.4 billion, while cancelling it outright would cost $1.2 billion.The Deloitte report says that the dam’s construction faces major risks including contractor performance problems, unforeseen geotechnical conditions and cost issues related to major contracts that haven’t been awarded yet.last_img read more

UNESCO chief voices concern over potential boycott of Israeli academic institutions

The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today expressed concern over a threatened boycott of Israeli academic institutions by the British University and College Union, stressing that opportunities for peace and dialogue must be seized especially in conflict situations.“Academics are responsible for gathering, processing and distributing information, which are tasks necessary for building stable, prosperous and democratic societies,” said UNESCO’s Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura. “We need to preserve the universality of research, exchange and learning, and support all joint academic activities that foster the sharing of experiences and expertise.”Academic work and institutions are centred on the free flow of ideas and knowledge, which is the core of all intellectual activity, he added.The request for the boycott is current being circulated to all local Union branches for discussion.“If we are serious about the need to promote sustained peace, democracy and development, I believe that we have the moral responsibility to share knowledge and promote understanding,” said the UNESCO chief, noting that cooperation among the world’s university is a necessity, not a luxury.“We must therefore continue to support all efforts within civil societies to nurture contacts in the spirit of respect and mutual understanding which characterize peaceful relations.” 22 June 2007The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) today expressed concern over a threatened boycott of Israeli academic institutions by the British University and College Union, stressing that opportunities for peace and dialogue must be seized especially in conflict situations. read more

Box office reaches new record but international sales flat

by Jake Coyle, The Associated Press Posted Mar 22, 2017 12:42 pm MDT Last Updated Mar 22, 2017 at 4:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Box office reaches new record, but international sales flat NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Motion Picture Association of America said Wednesday that the worldwide box office reached a record $38.6 billion in 2016, though international revenues were essentially stagnant.The MPAA’s annual report showed a global increase of .5 per cent in ticket sales from 2015. While China, the world’s second-largest market after the U.S., has long been a priority of Hollywood, it dropped 1 per cent last year with $6.6 billion in ticket sales.Box office in North America hit a record $11.4 billion, although the increase of $300 million was due largely to rising ticket prices. About 11 per cent of North Americans, the MPAA said, are frequent moviegoers — those who go to the theatre at least once a month. They make up 48 per cent of all tickets sold.About 71 per cent of the U.S./Canadian population went to the movies at least once in 2016, up 2 per cent from 2015.Among the year’s biggest box-office hits were “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” ”Finding Dory” and “Captain America: Civil War” — all of them, it’s worth noting, released by the Walt Disney Co. The MPAA noted that three of the top five grossing films drew a majority female audience.“Even with an incredible variety of viewing choices available to audiences, cinema remains the premier way to experience the magic of our movies,” said MPAA chief Chris Dodd. “And the good news is, there are positive signs for growth in the future.”Other notable conclusions from the report include:— Younger moviegoers increased. The biggest jump was for 18- to 24-year-olds, who went on average 6.5 times in 2016, up from 5.9 times in 2015.— The appeal of 3-D continued to slide. Sales of 3-D movies fell about 8 per cent to $1.6 billion, even though there were 30 per cent more 3-D releases.— African-American and Asian moviegoers continue to increase. Per capita, Asians/Other Ethnicities go more than any other group, seeing on average 6.1 movies a year.___This story has been corrected to show the Chinese box office declined 1 per cent, not 3 per cent. read more

General Assembly demands all States comply with UN resolutions regarding status of

Through a resolution adopted by a recorded vote of 128 in favour to nine against (Guatemala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau, Togo, United States), with 35 abstentions, the 193-member Assembly expressed “deep regret” over recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem and stressed that the Holy City “is a final status issue to be resolved through negotiations in line with relevant UN resolutions.” Action in the Assembly today follows a failed attempt by the Security Council on Monday adopt a similar text reflecting regret among the body’s members about “recent decisions regarding the status of Jerusalem,” with a veto from the United States, a permanent member of the Council. Ahead of that failed resolution, Nickolay Mladenov, Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, told the Security Council that the security situation in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory had become more tense in the wake of US President Donald Trump’s decision on 6 December to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.Subsequently, Yemen and Turkey, in their respective capacities as Chair of the Arab Group and the Chair of the Summit of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation, requested the President of the General Assembly to “urgently resume’ the tenth emergency special session of the General Assembly in accordance with the so-named ‘Uniting for peace’ procedure.This procedure, under Assembly resolution 377 (1950), is a pathway around a Security Council veto. By it, the Assembly can call an emergency special session to consider a matter “with a view to making appropriate recommendations to members for collective measures,” if the Security Council fails to act or if there is lack of unanimity among the Council’s permanent members, China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and the United States. Since the tenth such meeting, the Assembly has temporarily adjourned the emergency special session and authorized “the President of the General Assembly […] to resume its meeting upon request from Member States,” allowing for speedy consideration by the body of urgent issues. The most recent resumed emergency session was in 2009 when the Assembly called a meeting on East Jerusalem and the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Resolutions in the Assembly are non-binding and do not carry the force of international law as do measures agreed in the Security Council. Find out more about the Assembly’s emergency special sessions and resolution 377 (1950) hereToday’s resolution demanded that “all States comply with Security Council resolutions regarding the Holy City of Jerusalem, and not recognize any actions or measures contrary to those resolutions.” The General Assembly further affirmed that “any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council.” In that regard the Assembly also called upon all States to refrain from the establishment of diplomatic missions in the Holy City of Jerusalem, pursuant to Security Council resolution 478 adopted in 1980. Reiterating its call for the reversal of the negative trends that endanger the two-State solution, the Assembly urged greater international and regional efforts and support aimed at achieving, without delay, a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in the Middle East. read more

Tail docking by nonvets to be banned

first_imgVETERINARIANS AND THE DSPCA have welcomed the news that lay people will not be able to dock dogs’ tails.A petition and campaign were set up earlier this month after it emerged that new regulations were being considered that would have allowed the docking of dogs’ tails by lay people, without anaesthetic or pain relief.More than 11,000 people signed the petition.Bray-based vet Pete Wedderburn had explained to TheJournal.ie that is currently unethical for Irish vets to dock  dogs’ tails.Today, Alan Rossiter MVB of Veterinary Ireland said that at its recent AGM, Minister Coveney confirmed that the surgical procedures of tail docking and dew claw removal on pups will be prohibited except by veterinary professionals, and only when there is a clear welfare benefit to the individual animal.He said that Veterinary Ireland is awaiting the results of a study on tail injuries in working dogs in Scotland as well as the deliberation of a government agriculture committee before it decides whether there should be provision for vets to perform either of these procedures for welfare reasons.Veterinary Ireland welcomed the Minister’s news, and commended him on the decision. Currently, the organisation’s position is that tail docking does not benefit the welfare of animals, based on the studies to date.If the information changes under new studies, it may consider changing its stance on the topic to reflect that.The Department of Agriculture told TheJournal.ie prior to Minister Coveney’s address that tail docking for dogs is currently banned as part of the Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013, ” with very limited exception being considered relating to working dogs specifically terriers, spaniels and pointers”.The spokesperson added last week:We are currently waiting on international scientific research on this matter to be concluded before a final decision is made in relation to a new regulation on tail docking. Any decision will be based solely on animal welfare grounds and we are consulting widely with all stakeholders. Under no circumstance will tail docking for cosmetic purpose be allowed. The DSPCA said it welcomed the news and said it “had no doubt that this was always the case”.Vet Pete Wedderburn said that he had seen injuries to dogs caused by tail docking by non-vets, and he could not understand why the Minister for Agriculture would allow this to continue.He welcomed the news but also raised the question of how the law would be enforced.Read: Vets ‘shocked’ that tail docking could be allowed under new regulations>last_img read more

Rencontre avec lastronome qui a filmé le satellite UARS

first_imgRencontre avec l’astronome qui a filmé le satellite UARSAlors que le monde est en attente de savoir où et quand retomberont les débris du satellite UARS, Thierry Legault, un astronome amateur, est parti à Dunkerque capter une vidéo de l’engin survolant la Terre. Pour en savoir plus, Maxisciences a décidé d’interroger ce passionné de l’astrophotographie sur sa petite escapade et son travail.Cela fait plus de 17 ans que Thierry Legault, astronome amateur français scrute le ciel et en observe les merveilles à travers ses télescopes. Féru d’astrophotographie, il a capturé de nombreux clichés de planètes, de la Lune et du Soleil. Des images publiées dans les pages de plusieurs revues astronomiques et sur son site Internet. Mais depuis deux ans, l’ingénieur de formation a donné une nouvelle orientation à ses travaux : l’observation de la Station spatiale internationale et des satellites. Alors que la NASA annonçait la retombée imminente de l’un de ses satellites en orbite depuis 1991, Thierry Legault n’a donc pas pu résister à l’envie de partir observer l’engin avant son arrivée. Il lui suffisait juste de savoir où et quand le satellite UARS survolerait la France. Pour cela, rien de plus simple, il s’est rendu sur Internet et a appris que l’engin passerait au-dessus de la France jeudi 15 septembre. Il a alors choisi ce qui lui semblait être le meilleur point d’observation au vu de l’altitude de l’engin : Dunkerque au lever du Soleil. Le jour venu, il a ainsi embarqué tout son matériel pour partir sur la route. Un matériel qui est en vérité très particulier voire unique.En effet, ce genre d’objets n’est pas facile à observer en raison de la vitesse à laquelle ils se déplacent. “Ça va très vite. Pour avoir un ordre d’idée, cela va à une vitesse semblable à celle d’un avion de ligne”, nous explique Thierry Legault. Pour capturer des images, impossible alors d’utiliser les télescopes d’astronomie du commerce conçus pour observer des objets à vitesse beaucoup plus lentes. “J’ai modifié mon télescope avec un ami électronicien pour qu’il soit capable de faire de la poursuite. Maintenant, il est doté d’un système électronique et d’un système informatique. La caméra accroche l’image et l’ordinateur pilote le télescope pour qu’il suive le satelliteet la vidéo s’affiche toute seule sur l’écran”, détaille pour Maxisciences l’astronome amateur.Le où et quand reste indéterminéÀ lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESAAu final, celui-ci a donc pu observer le satellite survoler Dunkerque entre 6H42 et 14 secondes et 6H44 et 2 secondes alors que l’engin se trouvait à une altitude de 252 kilomètres. Mais si l’astrophotographe a suivi UARS sur son écran, il est quasiment certain qu’il était aussi possible de le voir à l’oeil nu vu la luminosité que l’objet a montré sur la vidéo. Quant à l’heure et l’endroit où celui-ci devrait arriver, Thierry Legault confirme la difficulté de prévoir des données précises. “Les dernières informations disent que le satellite va arriver dans la nuit entre 2H et 2H30. Mais il va à une telle vitesse qu’en si peu de temps, il a largement de quoi parcourir une bonne partie de la Terre”, commente t-il.

Une nouvelle espèce de gecko découverte en Australie

first_imgUne nouvelle espèce de gecko découverte en AustraliePubliant leurs travaux dans Zootaxa, des chercheurs australiens ont découvert dans l’est de leur pays une nouvelle espèce de gecko au drôle d’aspect : Saltuarius eximius.Les geckos du genre Saltuarius sont de petits lézards inféodés aux affleurements rocheux et aux forêts bordant les plages depuis le nord de la Nouvelle-Galles du Sud jusqu’aux régions tropicales humides du nord-est du Queensland, dans l’est de l’Australie. Et depuis le genre compte une nouvelle espèce : Saltuarius eximius, découverte à Cap Melville. Mesurant environ 12 cm et pesant environ 20 g, elle possède une tête courte et de très grands yeux. “La découverte de S. eximius porte le nombre [d’espèces du genre] Saltuarius à sept, et étend la distribution de celui-ci à 180 km au nord de l’extrémité nord de l’aire de répartition de [l’espèce] S. cornutus, dans la région de Cooktown, à Cap Melville”, expliquent les auteurs de l’étude, le Dr Conrad Hoskin, de l’Université James Cook à Townsville, et le Dr Patrick Couper, du Muséum du Queensland à Brisbane.”Six individus ont été trouvés, proches les uns des autres, dans une zone de rochers de granit couverte par un auvent de forêt tropicale. Quand nous les avons aperçus la première fois, les geckos étaient immobiles, tête en bas, avec la moitié antérieure de leur corps dressée sur la surface [où ils se tenaient] et leur tête parallèle à ce support”, précisent les chercheurs.Des geckos qui “grincent” À lire aussiRoi de l’imitation, cet oiseau-lyre peut reproduire le son d’un pistolet-laserUne posture qui en dit long sur la personnalité et le comportement de l’animal. “Avec cette posture [caractéristique] de recherche de nourriture, Saltuarius eximius est sans doute avant tout un prédateur chassant à l’affut, comme les autres geckos de ce genre. Plusieurs des geckos capturés ont émis un bruit de grincement prolongé lors de la première prise”, notent pour finir le Dr Hoskin et le Dr Couper.(crédits photo : Conrad Hoskin) Le 19 octobre 2013 à 17:01 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Angine de poitrine symptômes définition traitement quest ce que langor

first_imgAngine de poitrine : symptômes, définition, traitement, qu’est ce que l’angor ?L’angine de poitrine correspond à une forte douleur thoracique témoignant d’un problème cardiaque. Il ne s’agit pas d’une maladie mais d’un symptôme. Quel en est sa cause et comment la soigne-t-on ?Définition : qu’est ce que l’angine de poitrine ?L’angine de poitrine, parfois appelée angor, correspond à une douleur thoracique survenant le plus souvent à la suite d’un effort ou d’un stress intense. Il ne s’agit pas d’une maladie mais d’un symptôme cardiaque d’une pathologie coronarienne. Les risques de ressentir une angine de poitrine augmentent avec l’âge et sont plus élevés chez l’homme que chez la femme. En effet, les maladies cardiovasculaires sont la première cause de mortalité chez l’homme. Il est donc important de consulter un médecin dès l’apparition des premiers symptômes.Symptômes : comment reconnaître une angine de poitrine ?Le premier symptôme de l’angine de poitrine est une douleur thoracique localisée en majorité derrière le sternum. Elle peut également dans certains cas survenir au niveau du cou, des épaules, du bras gauche, du dos ou de la mâchoire. Elle apparaît en général à la suite d’un effort physique ou d’une émotion forte. Cette douleur se manifeste par une sensation de pression et de constriction sur la poitrine qui dure plusieurs minutes. Elle s’accompagne généralement par un sentiment d’oppression, d’angoisse ou de palpitations.On parle d’angine de poitrine stable lorsque les douleurs sont anciennes et ne présentent aucune aggravation avec le temps. L’angine de poitrine instable (ou syndrome de menace) présente des douleurs récentes ou des douleurs anciennes mais revenant fréquemment avec une intensité variable. Elle est à prendre très au sérieux. En effet, dans les cas les plus graves, l’angor instable peut entraîner un infarctus du myocarde et donc être potentiellement mortelle. Causes de l’angine de poitrine Dans la grande majorité de cas, l’angine de poitrine est due à une athérosclérose. Il s’agit d’un phénomène qui correspond à un dépôt progressif de lipides sur les parois intérieures des artères coronaires suite à une alimentation riche en cholestérol. Cela mène à la formation de plaques qui entraîne peu à peu le rétrécissement des vaisseaux sanguins. La circulation sanguine se fait donc plus difficile. Le cœur n’est alors plus suffisamment irrigué et ne reçoit pas l’apport d’oxygène dont il a besoin. C’est ce qu’on appelle l’insuffisance coronarienne. L’angine de poitrine apparaît généralement lorsque le diamètre du calibre des artères est diminué de moitié. Certains facteurs peuvent jouer un rôle dans l’apparition de l’angor comme les antécédents familiaux, un fort taux de cholestérol, la consommation de tabac, le diabète, l’hypertension artérielle, l’obésité ou la sédentarité. Traitement : comment soigner une angine de poitrine ?Les crises de l’angine de poitrine peuvent se soigner rapidement avec la prise de trinitrine. Il s’agit d’un comprimé que l’on place sous la langue et qui permet de dilater les artères et de vite soulager la douleur. À lire aussiAmygdalite : chronique, caséeuse, cryptique, de quoi s’agit-il ?Le traitement de l’angor nécessite une prise en charge médicamenteuse sur le long terme. Celle-ci a pour but de rétablir une bonne vascularisation afin de diminuer les douleurs et de réduire les risques d’une complication sérieuse comme un infarctus.  En complément des traitements, il est important de chercher à réduire les différents facteurs de risque en adaptant son hygiène de vie. Le 4 novembre 2015 à 17:09 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Islamic parties calculate ahead of polls

first_imgMany are focused on the electionThe qawmi madrasa-based Hefazat-e-Islam has become crucial in the election equations. On 5 May 2013, Hefazat’s demonstration in the Shapla Chattar area in Dhaka was foiled in face of an all-out operation by joint security forces.Hefazat leaders claim their organisation to be non-political and have all along been saying they were not interested in elections. Nonetheless they had supported BNP in five city corporation polls. Eventually, BNP’s win in all the five contests won Hefazat credit to some extent.The situation, though, changed later as several Hefazat leaders like Shah Ahmad Shafi, the amir and his son Anas Madani became close to the government. This was not received well by a different section of the party. They are silent on the issue and if situation favours, they might go against the government, said the party leaders.Hefazat’s central organisational secretary Azizul Haque Islamabadi said, Hefazat will neither participate in the election nor nominate or support anyone, “To vote is every citizen’s right. Our leaders, activists and supporters are on the side of Islam and will cast their votes against atheists as per their perception and conscience. We won’t command anyone formally.”The government apparently is aware that a section of Hefazat is hostile, but adopts a strategy to distance Hefazat from the BNP and to keep them inactive in the election. AL policymakers deem this will suffice.The AL presidium member Kazi Zafarullah said, “They (Hefazat) were with BNP, and will remain so. It’s nothing but a strategy to save the skin for our leaders to maintain good communication.”Jamaat is preparing for 70 constituenciesJamaat, no longer a registered party anymore, is still preparing for the polls. The potential candidates have been asked to get ready. Jamaat leaders say they want to contest in the polls as allies of BNP with independent candidates, as their party symbol (scales) is no longer registered.Sources from the party also said their policymakers had started preparing in 70 constituencies.Earlier, on 12 March, police arrested 10 Rajshahi Jamaat leaders including the acting amir Mujibur Rahman from an election-related meeting.10 registered partiesThere are 10 Islamic parties among the 40 political parties registered by the EC: Islami Andolan Bangladesh, Islami Oikya Jote (Nezami), Bangladesh Tariqat Federation (Nazibul Bashar), Khelafat Majlish (Ishaq), Bangladesh Khelafat Majlis (Haibur Rahman), Bangladesh Khelafat Andolan (Ataur rahman), Bangladesh Islami Front (Mannan), Islamic Front Bangladesh (Bahadur Shah), Zaker Party (Mostafa Amir) and Jamiat Ulema-e Islam Bangladesh (Momen).Tariqat Federation and Islamic Front are directly associated with the Awami League while Khelafat Majlis and Jamiat Ulema-e Islam are with BNP. Islami Oikya Jote (Nezami), and Bangladesh Khelafat Majlis were once BNP allies but have now taken independent positions. The current political stance of Bangladesh Khelafat Andolan, Bangladesh Islami Front, and Zaker party seems advantageous for the ruling party.Bangladesh Islami Front (Mannan) has been included in the Ershad-led Sammilita Jatiya Jote.The Islami Oikya Jote general secretary Mufti Faizullah said, “Each of the parties has done what it felt needed for itself and for the people. The present perspective is a little different. It seems there may be a new polarisation for the Islamic parties.”The Tariqat Federation has two elected members of parliament and the party allegiance is also with the government. The leaders said they would seek candidacy in 10 constituencies from the AL led 14-party alliance.Stressing the need to contest in the election, MA Awal, general secretary of Tariqat Federation says, “The way the prime minister is developing the country, the left or right-winged or Islamic-everyone feels the need of power politics now. We think, this will impact upon all the parties in the next election.”Islami Oikya Jote, Jamiat Ulema-e Islam and Bangladesh Khelafot Andolan-all these three registered parties have been divided into six parties. Among these a fraction of Islami Oikya Jote led by Abdur Rakib has been siding with BNP while the original party left the alliance. On the other hand, the two sections of the divided Jamiat are still with the 20 party. Moreover, the Zafrullah Khan led faction of the Khelafat Andolan is yet to take a stance.Abdur Rab Yousufi, vice president of Jamiat Ulema-e Islam, credits the new stance of the Islamic parties to be fear, “Those whom the government seems to have succeeded to keep on their side-were actually victims of circumstance. I don’t think they will remain on their side.”The Nezami-led section of the Islami Oikya Jote is preparing to participate in the polls independently. Jamiat Ulema-e Islam (Momen) had declared candidacy for 19 constituencies on 24 February in Sylhet.The Islami Andolan of Char Monai pir has already introduced potential candidates for more than a hundred constituencies at their sermons and religious gatherings.Gazi Ataur Rahman, joint secretary for Islami Andolan, told Prothom Alo, “The situation is not fair yet. Nor is there any hope of improvement one or two months ahead of the election. The people are in fear over whether they can cast their votes in an inclusive and fair election. Despite that, we are preparing for the election.”Sources from the EC said, five more religion-based Islamic parties have sought registration from the commission. They also said, both the registered and unregistered parties will actively remain in the election field this year. So the Islamic parties’ stances largely depend on the situation during the election.Emajuddin Ahamed, a political scientist and ex-vice chancellor of Dhaka University says, “The Islamic parties’ stand is not yet final-they may even form an independent alliance. Their turn could be predicted as the election approaches.” *This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Nusrat Nowrin. .Though the Islamic parties do not find the current political situation promising for fair polls, they have begun preparing for the 11th parliamentary election. Fresh calculations are already in process.In the past, a significant section of the Islamic parties were against the Awami League, which went to BNP’s advantage. But, the election commission has cancelled Jamaat-e-Islami’s registration and the Islami Oikya Jote has left the BNP alliance. So the scenario has changed for BNP.Moreover, the Char Monai Pir’s Islami Andolan Bangladesh, that shuns women’s leadership, has been preparing to contest in 300 constituencies.The state of these three parties, notable among the religion-based parties in the country, may prove difficult for BNP (Bangladesh Nationalist Party).The Islamic parties not very stable at the moment, as the top leaders point to the newly arising factions within the parties and pressure from the government. Several leaders also face cases.In this backdrop, the government has grown close with Hefazat-e-Islam and the qawmi madrasa leaders. The political stance of the Islamic parties may change even further in the ensuing election.Amir Khasru Mahmud Chowdhury, BNP standing committee member, differed, “BNP is the chief opposition to the government here. The people will keep this in mind,” he said. adding, “The people are now chiefly concerned with democracy, the right to vote, law and security. Everyone wants to change the prevailing state of affairs.”last_img read more
