Donald Trump Jr. posing in hunting regalia holding up a disembodied tail that appears to have been cut from a felled elephant beside him Reports surfaced this week that the administration of President Donald Trump would reverse an Obama-era ban on importing legally hunted elephant remains known as trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia While Twitter users expressed outrage the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) a federal agency under the Department of the Interior said in a statement that the ban’s reversal could actually “enhance the survival of the species in the wild” The backlash from skeptics was thick and fast On her Thursday talk show Ellen DeGeneres announced that she was launching a funding drive for elephants which she said show "compassion sympathy social intelligence self-awareness… all the things I have yet to see in this president" British comedian Ricky Gervais called the move a “devastating blow to the survival” of elephants and characterized it as “savage and pointless” And the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation which has distributed $80 million in conservation grants called the ban reversal a “reprehensible” move that would cause the US to lose its “global leadership position in putting an end to the ivory trade” Why is the administration lifting the ban Elephants are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act but a stipulation in the act allows the US government to issue permits to import trophies if theres evidence that the "hunting actually benefits conservation for that species" That’s what the US FWS says will happen in Zimbabwe and Zambia The Service said it had determined that "legal well-regulated sport hunting as part of a sound management program can benefit the conservation of certain species by providing incentives to local communities to conserve the species and by putting much-needed revenue back into conservation" The FWS announcement is dated November 16 However a November 14-dated statement on the website of the hunting advocacy group Safari Club International (SCI) says an FWS official announced the rule change at a forum it co-hosted in Tanzania Along with the National Rifle Association (NRA) the SCI had opposed the initial 2014 ban Tanzania which is in the midst of a poaching epidemic is also under consideration for an FWS ban lift the Washington Post reports How did the ban originally come about The ban on bringing hunting trophies into the US was never applied across the board Remains of animals legally hunted in South Africa and Namibia could be bought in under the Obama administration but those from Zimbabwe and Zambia were eventually prohibited That’s because the FWS in 2015 determined that Zimbabwe could not adequately prove it could implement laws to protect elephants Zimbabwe saw a 6% decline in its elephant population between 2007 and 2014 according to the latest elephant census data But that’s a relatively small decline compared to the 30% decline in the overall African elephant population over the same period Elephant populations in most areas of Zambia were relatively stable the census found Zambia had previously banned hunting after several years of population decline but now permits it Citing people briefed on the rule change the Post reports that the decision was made after Zimbabwe officials submitted documents that fulfilled the FWS’ previously unmet reporting requirements What do conservationists say That hunting can under the right circumstances complement conservation efforts is not under dispute But even the FWS statement announcing the rule change warns that to support conservation efforts “hunters should choose to hunt only in countries that have strong governance sound management practices and healthy wildlife populations” Zimbabwe conservationists say is no such country Wayne Pacelle president and chief executive of the Humane Society wrote in a blog post: "Its a venal and nefarious pay-to-slay arrangement that Zimbabwe has set up with the trophy hunting industry" He also described it as “one of the most corrupt countries on Earth" Zimbabwe is also in the midst of a turbulent political transition that appears to be a military coup; on Tuesday night the armed forces took control of the country’s capital Harare and have since kept President Robert Mugabe and his wife in custody Others worry that lifting the ban will undermine efforts to suppress the illegal poaching that feeds the ivory trade Iain Douglas-Hamilton founder and senior scientist at the Nairobi-based Save the Elephants says that while Africans are told “dont kill elephants” wealthy Americans “are being allowed to come and do it” according to the Post “When you go back in history it did do good but now is absolutely not the time to be opening up

the discrimination they encountered because of the caste bias of the state level administration Related News By Surinder S Jodhka The Jats without doubt have been the most important and powerful caste community in the rural landscapes of northwest India The sources of their dominance have typically been their control over agricultural lands their demographics and their networks beyond the village However unlike the other “dominant castes” such as the Marathas of Maharashtra the Patels of Gujarat the Reddys and Kammas of Andhra Pradesh or the Lingayats of Karnataka the Jats of northwest India have also been the “superior-most” community in terms of their status in the local rural caste hierarchies Even though the institution of caste is pretty strong in the region the hold of Brahmanical ideology has always been rather weak The values of khudkasht (self-cultivation) that have dominated this region for long also provide the frame of reference for social hierarchies of caste in the region No one was as good as a zamindar and the category did not imply an absentee landlord here as it did in Bengal Bihar or eastern UP Anyone who cultivated his own land and did not have to work for others as a farm labourer could qualify to be a zamindar provided he belonged to the right caste community Even a Brahmin in rural Haryana would choose to identify himself as a zamindar if he owned agricultural land However given the social cultural and economic significance of land only the most valued could own it Landownership and social status have been synonymous in the region During my fieldwork in Haryana I found rural Brahmins easily conceding to the status superiority of Jats and other landowning dominant caste communities No wonder Dalits in the agrarian landscapes there have been almost completely landless It is their landlessness and not their “ritual status” that accounts for their vulnerability in rural areas Caste in the region has always operated within the framework of land relations The Banias Brahmins or Punjabi Khatris/ Aroras could claim superior status in urban centres but never in the rural areas It is perhaps easy to explain the eagerness of the UPA government to include Jats in the OBC list — it appears to be a desperate electoral tactic What is more difficult to explain is the widespread aspiration among Jat leaders to get themselves included in the list Even though “backwardness” in this context is a statist category or a legal status it also indicates one’s social position in society While it is true that some of them are poor the majority of them in states like Haryana Punjab and Uttar Pradesh do not lack in confidence or social and economic resources They can send their children to schools or colleges on their own terms As scholars like Prem Chowdhry have shown the Jat leadership had also initiated reforms during the colonial period to create awareness about the need for education They have also been well represented in the state system and have been in control of local- and state-level political institutions without any viable threat to their position Even in government jobs at the state level their presence is far from insignificant In fact the non-Jat communities of Haryana often complained about the discrimination they encountered because of the caste bias of the state level administration Perhaps an easy explanation for the Jat sense of deprivation is the “crisis of agriculture” The northwest region — Punjab Haryana and western UP — was at the forefront of the Green Revolution Jat farmers were among the most prominent beneficiaries of the economic growth witnessed in the countryside during the 1970s But from the mid-1980s agriculture began to lose ground The process of liberalisation further accentuated this The effects of the agrarian crisis were felt in different ways Like elsewhere in the country with generational progression the size of land holdings has been declining leading to a downward mobility among agrarian communities Hence the demand for recognition as “backward” But this is not the whole story The Jat demand must also be located in their growing sense of relative (not absolute) deprivation and in the rapidly disintegrating rural social order It is not the marginalised Jat cultivator who is articulating the demand for inclusion in the OBC quota but the upwardly mobile Jat elite Their younger generations who often study in urban schools no longer wish to stay in the village and plough the land But urban spaces and quality education have often been the monopoly of the upper-castes in cities Even with their economic might and political power the Jat elite finds it hard to compete with the traditional non-Jat upper-caste middle classes of urban areas It is within these dynamics of rural transformation and post-liberalisation aspirations that we ought to view the Jat demand for inclusion in the OBC list But the acceptance of their demand could produce an exclusionary effect The really “backward” those who are located just above the so-called “pollution line” the landless and the poor would lose out in the process And they are large in number perhaps much more numerous than the Jats though not united as a single social category like the Jats The writer is professor of sociology at Jawaharlal Nehru University New Delhi For all the

has seen a lot in over 100 years of its existence It has seen Gurgaon’s transition from a village to a city and then to an IT hub struggling to keep up with the dizzying pace of its own development It has seen the space around the structure once open gradually taken over by matchbox-size houses And it has seen Gurgaon being renamed as Gurugram The little-known temple is dedicated to Guru Dronacharya the revered teacher of the Kauravas and Pandavas who it is believed lived and taught his disciples in the area Residents of Subhash Nagar say the temple was established in 1887 after almost 50 acres of land was donated by Baba Singh Bhagat Maharaj an affluent resident Multiple structures were built to pay tribute to Dronacharya including a statue of the guru on the land where the Dronacharya Government College now stands The statue was removed after the land was allotted for the college The land donated by Bhagat Maharaj included a lake near which it is believed Dronacharya taught his disciples Today this lake has been handed over to the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) after residents who were managing the land were unable to deal with encroachers “We tried for a long time to preserve the lake but when we found we were unable to do so we handed it over to the MCGThe point is not to own the land but to preserve the legend and what remains of it” says Kali Ram Sharma a member of one of the five families which have been looking after the Dronacharya temple and the land it stands on When the temple was initially built it consisted of only a boundary wall a single room and a statue of Guru Dronacharya Over the years however it has been renovated The temple now has two rooms and statues of other gods and goddesses The statue of Dronacharya is at the centre of the temple whose walls are also adorned with scenes depicting the guru teaching his disciples Apart from the temple locals say its surroundings have also changed in the last century What was once a vast open area surrounded by fields and greenery is today a crowded residential area of narrow lanes and innumerable houses that stand cheek by jowl “Earlier this temple used to be clearly visible because it was in an open area but now it is hidden by the houses around it so few people even know it exists” says Vijay Sharma a resident Reiterating this point Kali Ram adds “The number of visitors to the temple had reduced over the years But since the government decided to change the name of the city to Gurugram more people have started visiting because of increased awareness and media coverage Earlier we would get about 70 visitors per week now almost a 100 people visit… We hope the numbers will increase even more when the name is finally changed” For all the latest Delhi News

NewsAllahabad: The Allahabad High Court on Friday asked the Uttar Pradesh government to file its reply on an application for impleading Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and other BJP leaders in a petition seeking probe by an independent agency into the 2007 Gorakhpur communal riots Justices Krishna Murari and Akhilesh Chandra Sharma directed the government to file its reply within two weeks and fixed 9 October as the next date of hearing in the matter File image of Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath PTI The application wherein a prayer has been made for impleading Adityanath the then city Mayor Anju Chaudhary local MLA Radha Mohan Das Agrawal and MLC Dr YD Singh was filed by petitioners Parvez Parwaz and Asad Hayat through their counsel SFA Naqvi While Parwaz was the informant in the FIR that was lodged after the riots Hayat was a witness in the case "Initially we had not sought impleadment of the accused since the petition seeking a change in investigation was essentially a matter between the informant and the state" Naqvi said "However when we learnt that the state government has passed an order refusing the sanction to prosecute Adityanath we moved an application challenging the same" the counsel said "There could have been a possibility of those who stood to benefit from the refusal of sanction for prosecution coming up with a complaint that they were not given an opportunity for hearing We have tried to pre-empt that" Naqvi claimed A senior BJP legislator in Karnataka has sparked off a controversy by saying that Gauri Lankesh senior journalist and activist who was shot dead two days ago in Bengaluru would not have died if she had not indulged in anti-Hindutva writings DN Jeevaraj a former minister in the BJP government that ruled the state between 2008 and 2013 told a party rally in Chikmagalur district’s Koppa taluk: “If she had not written on the celebration of the death of chaddiwalas (reference to RSS) wouldn’t she have been alive today” His entire statement reads thus: “During the Congress government we have seen how RSS workers have lost their lives If Gauri Lankesh had not written the celebration of the death of chaddiwalas wouldn’t she have been alive today Gauri is like a sister to me but the way she has written against us is unacceptable” Petty politics is only complicating the Gauri Lankesh murder probe PTI Jeevaraj was addressing party workers when the police banned a bike rally to the coastal city of Mangaluru the heartland of the BJP’s support base from different parts of the state The BJP has been demanding a ban on Muslim organisations like the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI) the Popular Front of India (PFI) among others for allegedly supporting the killing of RSS workers The BJP also wants the resignation of environment minister Ramanath Rai for supporting the Muslim organisations Chief Minister Siddaramaiah raised questions over Jeevaraj’s comments “What is the meaning of it What inference can you draw from his statement Does it not mean that they are behind this” “I made that speech under tremendous pressure from the police who did not want me to address the party workers We were all arrested later I had said that 11 of my party workers were killed during the Congress regime Since she (Gauri Lankesh) was close to the chief minister she should have asked him to get all those responsible for the murder of my party workers also arrested" Jeevaraj told Firstpost “This is why I asked for a CBI inquiry that will cover the deaths of Gauri and litterateur Dr MM Kalburgi as well as the murders of 11 workers of the Sangh parivar” he said “My mistake was that I should have added one more sentence that would have given a different meaning Why should I have anything against a senior journalist like Gauri Lankesh" asked Jeevaraj His statement assumes significance because the Special Investigation Team or SIT set up to probe the killing of Gauri Lankesh is also examining her articles in her newspaper and her social media posts to find the motive in her murder The SIT began its assignment with a visit to the scene of crime on Thursday RSS denies involvement As condemnation of Lankesh’s murder continue to pour in the RSS too has been quick to react On Tuesday night itself the same night Gauri Lankesh was murdered RSS Kshetriya Sangha Chalak V Nagaraj not only condoled the “dastardly act of the cowards” but also urged the government to identify and arrest the miscreants who killed both Gauri Lankesh and MM Kalburgi in August 2015 Despite allegations by media of the murder having been perpetrated by fringe outfits close to the RSS the Sangh’s leaders termed this as “frivolous and ridiculous” Lakshminarayan RSS spokesman based at Bengaluru initially refused to say anything on the issue “We don’t want to clarify ourselves when our actions and deeds are human-oriented” he said When asked why a section has begun pointing fingers of suspicion towards the RSS blaming Hindu radicals for the murder Lakshminarayan said everybody knows the RSS philosophy and that it was humane in its activities It has become a fashion for some people to come out with statements against RSS and this happened even when scholar Kalburgi was murdered he said “Who prevented the government from identifying the killers On Tuesday also immediately after the news of Gauri Lankesh’s death our Kshetriya Sangha Chalak came out with a statement asking the government to nab the culprits immediately and take all measures to protect people” added Lakshminarayan Another RSS leader Raghu Akmanchi said that in a democratic set up every one has the right to dissent or accept another viewpoint But this does not mean that anybody has a right to kill “If the state government has taken Kalburgi’s murder seriously and nabbed the culprits this would have not happened” he said adding that RSS stood for highest democratic values and struggled for it However many rationalist groups are pointing fingers at Hindutva forces and have been tweeting against them Politician Devanoor Shivamallu and friend of Gauri’s father P Lankesh appeared realistic on the issue “Without breaking the cases of Dabholkar Pansare and MM Kalburgi and now Gauri Lankesh it is speculative to suspect the role of any right radical groups’ involvement in this murder” he said adding that in a democracy nobody has right to kill another Former minister H Vishwanath also a writer himself blamed the state government for the death of Gauri Lankesh “Who held down the hands of state government in unearthing the killers behind Kalburgi murder Chief Minister Siddaramaiah’s callousness towards sensitive issues led to the collapse of law and order situation in Karnataka” he alleged suggesting the government hand over the case to the CBI Many angles to Gauri’s death With the fading away of progressive movements launched by Dalit Sangarsh Samiti Karnataka Rajya Raitha Sangha and other similar Left-oriented progressive organisations Gauri Lankesh picked up the gauntlet and individually started challenging vested elements While Leftist organisations and intellectuals welcomed and praised all her ventures intellectuals who were right of Centre questioned her allegedly biased view towards them The allegation against her was that in the process of supporting various people’s causes she forgot the wrongdoings and misdeeds of the people and organisations which she supported It was an open secret that in recent days that she had vociferously supported all the decisions of the present Congress government in Karnataka especially its chief minister Siddaramaiah who describes himself as a Lohiaite Gauri shot into the limelight when she not only protested the alleged fake encounter of Naxal leader Saketh Rajan but also got possession of his body for performing the last rites in Bengaluru when his family members refused to take it Since then she was viewed as a front runner in issues where there was violation of human rights or atrocities on Left wing activists by right wing groups She even headed “Karnataka Komu Souardha Samiti” (Karnataka Communal Amity Committee) and led protests in the districts of Karnataka particularly in coastal districts whenever fascist elements took law into their hands When moral policing incidents rocked the coastal districts of Karnataka Gauri was in the forefront challenging them She acted as a mediator between the government and Naxals active in the Malnad region of the state and succeeded in bringing a couple of them to the negotiating table and surrender before the government Gauri was also embroiled in a family feud with her brother Indrajit Lankesh a film producer and an artist When Indrajit took control of their father’s famous “Lankesh Patrike” tabloid Gauri decided to start one of her own – termed “Gauri Lankesh Patrike” a Kannada weekly tabloid Mark your calendars — 22 August 2017 — is the day Muslim women in India scored a major legal victory one they won in the teeth of widespread opposition In a historic judgment the Supreme Court struck down instant triple talaq (Talaq-e-Biddat) calling it unconstitutional and in violation of Article 14 of the Constitution which provides for equality before law and "equal protection within the territory of India and prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion race caste sex or place of birth or any of them" Almost simultaneously the campaigners have had to mark a new date on the calendar Six months down the line everything will be up for grabs again Or will it And what is the road ahead for the campaignersRepresentational image Getty Images First a recap The five-member Supreme Court bench was divided on this matter but the majority verdict (3-2) held illegal the much-reviled practice of instant triple talaq which allows a husband to divorce his wife by simply uttering "talaq" thrice Justices Kurian Joseph RF Nariman and UU Lalit said that the practice was "manifestly arbitrary and violative of the Constitution" India will now join countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh that have either implicitly or explicitly abolished the practice In a minority verdict Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice S Abdul Nazeer wanted to put triple talaq on hold for six months till the government made a law on this And the Centre so far has indicated that there will be no new law to check the practice of triple talaq: According to a News18 report the government is considering making amendments to the Muslim Personal Law but is not really keen on passing legislation What does this six-month stay mean "It’s [the six-month stay recommended by Khehar and Nazeer] a minority judgment you can ignore it completely" says Alok Prasanna Kumar a constitutional expert throwing clarity on the judgment "It means nothing because the minority judgment is ridiculous and contradicts itself — it talks about how talaq is right and then immediately says ‘let’s stay it for the foreseeable future’ It makes no sense Even if a law isn’t passed it’ll [the judgment] continue" Karuna Nundy a Supreme Court advocate too clears the legal fog "People are very confused; the first judgment is the CJI’s judgment which is in a minority on the proposition that Parliament should pass legislation So that is not something that stands The other three judgments — the majority — require that triple talaq to be set aside" The government not being keen on passing legislation isn’t something to worry about adds Kumar because "what the Supreme Court has said is enforceable The law which already stands has been read to mean you can’t enforce the divorce on the basis of triple talaq" It has been a long haul for the campaigners Since it was set up in 2007 the Muslim women’s rights group Bharatiya Muslim Mahila Andolan (BMMA) have been fighting to get rid of triple talaq In 2012 they took it up as a campaign and in 2016 collected 50000 signatures in support of the demand asking for an end to this practice and to also work towards a swift codification of Islamic law Today along for Shayara Bano whose husband of 15 years sent her a letter with talaq written thrice and left her and for her fellow petitioners Ishrat Jahan Gulshan Parween Aafreen Rehman and Atiya Sabri their fight has borne great fruit "[The verdict is] a huge relief for Muslim women It also needs to be seen how this is going to be implemented The fact that triple talaq has been declared as unconstitutional — that is very very crucial It’s affirming the citizens the rights of Muslim women and affirming their fundamental right according to the Constitution" says Noorjehan Safia Niaz the co-founder of the BMMA who along with Zakia Soman has been instrumental in fighting for the change Niaz says that BMMA has been working on a Muslim family draft law for years now (it took them eight years) and looking forward the Supreme Court has also given a direction for the Parliament to take up legislation on this issue Mariya Salim a women’s rights activist a researcher and a member of the BMMA says now the verdict has to be taken to the masses and people have to be informed that instant triple talaq is not just against the Constitution but also against Quranic injunction "We’ll give them the facts that instant triple talaq has gone and the correct method of divorce [talaq al-ahsan] has to be followed And of course the larger fight for social reform — polygamy and nikah halala (where the woman needs to get remarried consummate the second marriage get divorced observe the iddat period and then come back to her original husband) — needs to be addressed" Obviously the next coming months look very different for the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) the highly influential NGO which has customarily enjoyed the biggest voice in Muslim personal law debates Until BMMA and other women’s groups upset the apple cart The AIMPLB has gone back and forth on this issue It opposed the move to ban triple talaq and polygamy and in 2016 filed an affidavit to the Supreme Court saying women lacked power and were incapable of making good decisions Back then the affidavit had exasperated Hasina Khan the founder of Bebaak Collective a powerful umbrella of Muslim women’s groups to tell The Ladies Finger “What about those women who stand for elections or our constitutional and fundamental rights that allow us to vote Are we completely stupid that we cannot make decisions for ourselves” In April 2017 the AIMPLB argued that Muslim personal law permitted triple talaq though it was a sin and also called for the social boycott of instant triple talaq Today they call the Supreme Court verdict a victory for personal laws AIMPLB member Kamal Faruqui says that the verdict guarantees personal laws as put forth by Article 25 of the Indian Constitution a fundamental right for people to practice their religion peacefully "As far as triple talaq being rejected our view is that the whole decision has been taken in a way that it may open up several other important issues which is our worry like the Shariat Application Act of 1937 [Muslim Personal Law] This is a disturbing feature" As far as instant triple talaq is concerned Faruqui says the AIMPLB has been making it "difficult for the people to pronounce it and have gone to the extent of advising that there could be a provision in the nikahnama individually and the qazi can bring in provision that it won’t be pronounced We are nobody to delete it from the Constitution and from Shariat" Several news reports have quoted the women’s wing of the AIMPLB term the judgment as fractured and contradictory When asked about their immediate plans around the verdict Faruqui gets defensive "Frankly speaking even if I have any plans I will not be sharing with you This is such an important crucial issue — not that we are going to do something Right now we are happy that one point of view has been accepted that the personal laws are governed by Constitution That is it We have nothing to say about any other thing" Kumar hopes that the campaigners and those working for the rights of Muslim women use the momentum of this verdict to come up with a law that reforms Muslim personal law as a whole "Put everything down in words a law passed by Parliament can always be tested on constitutionality at a later time Put down whatever you feel are the progressive parts of Islamic law It should be seen as a great opportunity to reform Islamic personal law in India" For Muslim women the initial battle has been fought but the war still remains — they still have to go to courts employ the Domestic Violence Act and other remedies to get justice Maybe this is what the campaigners should focus on at the moment: Educating and building awareness that despite a judgment instant triple talaq can still take place It’s also the attitudes that need changing Nundy says the onus shouldn’t be on the petitioners who with limited resources have achieved a massive victory "The AIMPLB has been gracious in defeat It’s clear now though that the BMMA and some of the other petitioners also lead the community The AIMPLB had already proposed a model nikahnama for qazis and maulvis The petitioners and other leaders of the community could perhaps ensure that model nikahnamas are widely adopted and lay down terms that are just and equal far beyond the mode of talaq" The verdict has created a wave of palpable excitement in the country and rightly so It’s a victory for Muslim women (and women in general) who have been struggling for reforms from within their community and demanding an equal seat at the table It’s an inspiring victory for gender justice

certificates unless the person is genuinely ill” he said Prof Hemlata More president of Pune University Teachers’ Association did not comment on the rise in leave applications but said teachers have been put on poll duty despite a Supreme Court order The SC had held that teachers cannot be asked to skip classes and undertake non-academic activities like election duty and census work According to
