Grand Mufti issues fatwa against girls’ band, Omar
Srinagar, February 3
Leading religious scholar of Jammu and Kashmir, Grand Mufti Mohammad Bashiruddin, on Sunday issued fatwa against the region’s only all-girls rock band run by the teenage girls and against Chief Minister Omar Abdullah for extending support to them. The Grand Mufti termed the three teenage girls, who formed the rock band, ‘non serious’, saying such an approach leads to ‘gang rape’. “Shameful incidents like gang rapes, that happened in Hindustan recently, are a result of all this. It happens when women are given freedom to roam around, sing and dance,” Bashiruddin told The Tribune. The fatwa — an advisory by an Islamic scholar, who has knowledge of theology, religious jurisprudence and law — has been issued by the “Supreme Court of Islamic Shariat” headed by Bashiruddin.

K’taka Assembly meets today amid political uncertainty
Bangalore, February 3
The joint session of the Karnataka legislature begins here tomorrow against the backdrop of political uncertainty in the state after resignation of 13 BJP legislators loyal to the BS Yeddyurappa's outfit.

Shivir effect: ‘Chintan’ over Haryana Cong chief stretches on
Chandigarh, February 3
From facing a problem of plenty, the Haryana unit of the Congress may well be moving towards a “dearth” of candidates in the race for the post of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee president. Following the recent “Chintan Shivir” of the Congress at Jaipur, most Congressmen seem to have developed cold feet about heading the state unit of the party. If suggestions made by the Congress think tank at the shivir are anything to go by, party presidents may not be able to contest elections in future.
