civil society activists like Harsh Mander and Teesta Setalvad among others along with the JNU alumni The chain stretched from the JNU main gate to Chandrabhaga Hostel and saw protesters holding posters saying “Killers of Rohith don’t teach us nationalism” Share This Article Related Article The event took place after a press conference of the Jawaharlal Nehru University Teachers’ Association (JNUTA) in which they reiterated their demand to have “arbitrary charges” against Kumar dropped and issued an appeal asking people to “stop demonising the university for a stray incident” Responding to questions by the media on Kumar’s alleged Lashkar links JNUTA president Ajay Patnaik said “JNU is inclusive and anyone who doesn’t like inclusion is branding JNU anti-national” “We have internal mechanisms in place that are looking at the unfortunate incident But even before they could submit the report the police got involved in the incident We love our autonomy and want to preserve it at any cost If anybody thinks they can bulldoze us or create fear in us it will not happen” he added The conference also saw solidarity statements being made and read out by teachers’ associations from

other organisations also spoke against Kumar’s arrest “What is happening in JNU now is absolutely unprecedented The charges of sedition against Kanhaiya are politically motivated It may have been in

also read out by the organisers alleging Kumar’s intention was to shift focus from Vemula’s death “Even after JNUSU made clear its stand condemning anti-India slogans raised by some fringe elements the arrest seems to be a move to divert attention away from the institutional murder of Rohith” the statement read President of the AUD Faculty Association Rukmini Sen condemned police presence on the campus “Police action on the pretext of national security and branding any kind of dissent as anti-national is a dangerous and undemocratic practice — a feature that was witnessed in University of

into the grimy wall of an Arabic restaurant in South Delhi’s Khirki village where he works as an errand boy He opened four folds of a blue paper and called it his only possession The "blue card" is an identification issued by the United Nations’ High Commissioner for Refugees but in the eyes of the Indian State it has no legal validity In 2016 Ibrahim fled Galkayo a district in Somalia’s north-central Mudug region Clashes between rival militias Galmudug and Puntland in central Galkayo city had killed at least 29 and wounded more than 50 The district is under the divided control of the warring militias and last year when conflict erupted over buildings planned in the region schools were forced to shut and civilians fled for their lives Ibrahim who works as an errand boy at an Arabic restaurant in Delhi’s Khirki United Nations Children’s Fund believes there are up to 5000 child soldiers in Somalia mostly recruited by al-Shabaab and clan militias Firstpost/Pallavi Rebbapragada Amnesty International a non-governmental organisation that focusses on human rights confirmed in its 2016/2017 report that armed conflict continues between Somali Federal Government (SFG) forces African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) peacekeepers and al-Shabaab a jihadist fundamentalist group that has a history of killing civilians in public by firing mortars beheading and stoning and carrying out amputations and floggings The report details that more than 50000 civilians were killed injured or displaced as a result of the armed conflict and generalised violence while about 47 million people needed humanitarian assistance; 950000 didn’t have food security As per the report the federal Parliament passed a law in January to protect and rehabilitate IDPs and Somali refugees but its implementation was slow Over 11 million Somali refugees remained in neighbouring countries and the wider diaspora As violence intensified in Yemen Somalis who had fled continued to return home By the end of the year over 30500 Somalis were back Refugees from Somalia who manage an Arabic restaurant in Khirki village flash the UNHCR blue card the only identity proof for a refugee in India Firstpost/Pallavi Rebbapragada Meanwhile other host countries including Denmark and the Netherlands intensified pressure on asylum-seekers and refugees to return to Somalia saying security had improved in their country As of end December 2014 there were some 31000 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with UNHCR in India Out of this 654 were from Somalia Ahmad Usman Ali says he came to India last year from Bosaso a city in Somalia’s northeastern Bari province "I am coming to India to study something to increase my knowledge I don’t have someone connecting me to what I want I don’t have any help" he said adding that many Somali refugees study English and computer courses at UN’s Bosco centre in Malaviya Nagar in South Delhi which is also where many of them live Bosco is part of the Don Bosco Global Network spread across 135 countries that runs educational institutions along with vocational and technical training centers essentially for the benefit of displaced youth Ali holds his palms over his ears and then pulls them away saying he doesn’t hear the cacophony of bombs and bullet shells clashing into tins "There is peace we are at peace here but we are not going to progress" he remarked Adil Hasan born to a Somali mother grew up in Yemen By September 2014 334512 people across Yemen were officially registered as "internally displaced" due to fighting He told Firstpost that he moved to Somalia in 2015 and that’s when he saw his grandmother die before his eyes It was then that his family set out for Indian shores "A broker brought us here We have peace but my family does nothing But we have a chance to survive here" he said sharing a story that is both intensely personal and yet universal among refugees A Somali refugee claims he has spent close to a year waiting for the UNHCR to issue a blue refugee card in his name He holds out a document that confirms his case is under consideration by the UN Firstpost/Pallavi Rebbapragada Abdiqani who is a community leader of the Somalis and appeals to the United Nations on their behalf told us that most of his countrymen live in Hyderabad’s Tuli Chowk and Mehdipatnam while a third of them live in and around South Delhi’s ghettos "Arabic speaking people mostly go to Hyderabad Refugees also live in that city because the weather is better rents are cheaper and the food suits them They often act as translators and are even promised Rs 6000 to Rs 7000 per case but are actually paid much less" he said Abdiqani further added that he collects case numbers and appeals to the UN on behalf of other Somalis regarding updating of cases He had lost his parents to violent clashes in Marka near the old port town in the Lower Shebelle province "Those who come here from Mogadishu but have families who work in the government back home come on student visas and go back once they get their degrees" he said "But the refugees are different they can apply only for the ‘long-term visa’" Abdiqani said alleging that the Foreign Regional Registration Office (FRRO) is often rude to refugees and asks them why they are living here "I have recently written to the UN about 17 cases where they don’t even have a blue card; these include families and individuals As an advocate I can tell you that the fear of being deported is real" he said Another problem the community faces in India is racial discrimination "People confuse us with Nigerians and think we’re here to drink and break the laws but we are different Our colour also makes it harder for us to get houses on rent" said Ali who came here from Mogadishu in 2009 Within the confines of the handful of Bosco centres in New Delhi Somali girls wrap "garees" (a dress that resembles a saree) around them and keep the flame of their culture

to deport Rohingya has other Stateless migrants worried New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday ordered taking out of the records of complaints lying in the office of JNU’s disbanded sexual harassment panel to enable the newly formed Internal Complaint Committee (ICC) to proceed with its inquiries File photo of JNU CNN-IBN The court’s direction came on a plea filed by some teachers and students of JNU opposing the quashing of the office order superseding the Gender Sensitisation Against Sexual Harassment (GSCASH) by the ICC and a Registrar’s circular putting on hold the election of the students’ representatives to the dissolved body A bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Pratibha M Singh on Tuesday directed that the sealed office tobe opened in the presence of members of the erstwhile GSCASH and the ICC and the records of pending complaints be taken out It ordered preparation of a list of the pending matters by suppressing the names of victims accused and witnesses which should be brought before it in a sealed cover on 19 December the next date of hearing It said that the office room should be re-sealed thereafter The court had earlier asked the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) to maintain status quo on the sealing of the office of GSCASH committee which was superceded by the ICC During the day’s hearing the bench said its concern was that the pending files be handed over to the ICC so that they can proceed with the inquiries into the complaints as there was no stay on the working of the committee The submission of petitioners’ counsel opposing the suggestion to open the panel’s office and taking out the records did not go down well with the bench which said GSCASH was not their personal property and they cannot keep the records with them Their "obstructive attitude" would harm the cases it added "Don’t say no That is harming the cases Obstructive attitude does not help" the bench said adding that it will order the opening of the room in their presence When the petitioner’s counsel said some complaints were also made against high-profile people which was the reason they do not want the records to be taken out the court said if high profile people were said to be involved then there was all the more reason that the complaints should proceed Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Jain appearing for JNU said the new committee has already started functioning and was dealing with the fresh complaints He said JNU had set up the ICC on the directions of the University Grant Commission (UGC) which have to be complied with by every varsity The counsel representing the UGC sought time to file a response to the petition and said it has made regulations to form the ICC which is a binding for all the universities The JNU administration had in its 269th Executive Council meeting held on September 18 ordered the dissolution of the independent body GSCASH As an interim relief the petitioners had sought a stay on the operation of the supersession order and a direction to JNU to preserve all records of GSCASH from 1999 till date in consultation with GSCASH The petition was filed by three teachers and three students

government will soon announce a mechanism to investigate the trading of sugar at the NCDEx platform Both chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and cooperation minister Chandrakant Patil said that while price of sugar on the platform was high millers have been complaining of no demand – a phenomenon which needs to be investigated On January 2 The Indian Express had reported how both prices and volume of sugar on the NCDEx platform had seen a high over the last few days but on ground level the millers see no effect on demand (“Sugar prices up but mill owners feel no gain” The Indian Express January 2) Records from the market showed that since July 2015 the platform had seen trading of over 35 lakh tonnes of sugar priced at Rs 931841 crore Millers and growers had said that in many cases the sugar traded on the platform was not even physically delivered Many have also said the trade on the platform could be just speculative in nature Swabhimani Paksha MP had earlier this week submitted a letter to Union Finance Minister Arun Jatiley asking for a thorough investigation in the trading on the market Fadnavis who was speaking at the annual general body meeting of the Pune-based Vasantdada Sugar Institute said the market forces that are causing volatility needs to be investigated “Price volatility is some thing to be taken seriously Also many of the traders do not result in physical lifting of the stock which needs to looked into” he said The chief minister said that although lakhs of tonnes of sugar is traded on the NCDEx platform not even 25-30 per cent of it is delivered This he said was a matter of grave concern and has to be investigated in full Meanwhile Patil speaking on the sidelines said that the state government will be soon setting up a suitable committee to look into the matter “In order to form a committee or a commission we need to have the proper legal framework for it The matter will be put before the state cabinet during its next meeting and work will start on that” he said Shetti on his part said he has been raising the issue with both the state and central government for the last six years “I had brought the matter to the notice of Prithviraj Chavan when he was in the Prime Minister’s Office But due to intervention of a powerful leader who had vested interest in the matter it was not looked into” he said The Challenges The meeting also saw former union agriculture minister Sharad Pawar talking about the challenges before the industry Pawar who is also the president of VSI asked millers to speed up exports in order to meet the targets set by the Central government by individual millers While the state has a total export quota of around 14 lakh tonnes just around 2 lakh tonnes have been exported so far Millers have cited better domestic prices as their reason for preferring domestic markets over export Till date around export contracts 345 lakh tonnes of sugar has been signed of which 145 lakh tonnes has been dispatched Fadnavis on his part said the reluctance of millers to export can destabilise the markets again and force the government to intervene “During informal talks we have pointed out that in order to help the industry we might have to make it compulsory for the millers to sell their export quota in the public distribution system to keep the market stable” he said In case the government mandates mills will have to
