News Follow the news on Egypt Receive email alerts RSF_en Organisation Concern about Al-Jazeera journalists’ healthFahmy’s health is worrying. He has a shoulder injury that has not been treated properly and he can no longer move his right arm. His family has written to acting President Adly Mansour requesting his release so that he can get appropriate treatment.Greste’s parents also asked President Mansour to intercede on their son’s behalf to get him released. In both cases, Mansour expressed his “understanding” but otherwise limited himself to reaffirming “the independence of the judiciary.” Other journalists on trialAnother Al-Jazeera employee, Abdallah Al-Shami, has been held since 14 August without any charge being brought against him. He began a hunger strike on 23 January in protest against his arbitrary detention, which was extended for another 45 days on 13 March.A military court began trying several employees of the Rassd news network, including Amro Al-Qazzaz and Islam Al-Homsi, on 24 February on charges of divulging confidential information and insulting Field Marshal Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. The judge reportedly refused to allow them to be defended by a lawyer at the first hearing. The trial is to resume on 2 April.Two journalists have received jail terms in connection with their work in the past two weeks. They are Samah Ibrahim, a reporter for the daily Al-Adala wa Al-Hurriya, who was sentenced to a year of forced labour, and Al-Shaab photographer Mohamed Ali Salah, who was given a three-year sentence. Amid continuing arrests and arbitrary prosecutions of media personnel, Reporters Without Borders reiterates its deep concern about the fate of the 20 Al-Jazeera journalists whose trial began on 20 February and continued today.All 20 are charged with “broadcasting false information,” while the 16 who are Egyptian are also charged with membership of a “terrorist organization” and “undermining national unity and social peace,” and the four foreign journalists are also charged with abetting them by providing money, equipment and information.Three of the 20 have been held in Cairo since 29 December. They are Peter Greste, who is Australian, Mohamed Adel Fahmy, who has Canadian and Egyptian dual citizenship, and Baher Mohamed, who is Egyptian.During today’s hearing, Greste and Fahmy were able to speak directly to the judge for the first time, reaffirming their innocence and denying any link with the Muslim Brotherhood or any terrorist organization. They also reiterated their request to be freed on bail, which the judge again denied.The next hearing is scheduled for 10 April.“The authorities must stop invoking the fight against terrorism in order to persecute dissident journalists,” said Lucie Morillon, head of research and advocacy at Reporters Without Borders. “We call on them to release all journalists who are being held on spurious grounds and to withdraw the proceedings against them. We also urge them to respect the newly-adopted constitution as well as Egypt’s international obligations as regards freedom of information.” Help by sharing this information EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News News News March 31, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities continue to detain, prosecute journalists EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison January 22, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Newspaper editor injured in shooting attack

first_imgNews to go further News IndiaAsia – Pacific Organisation March 3, 2021 Find out more Ghulam Mohammad Sofi, editor of the Urdu daily Srinagar Times, was shot at by two armed men on 17 September.”This attack is yet another clear illustration of the difficulties and dangers faced by journalists working in Kashmir. Caught in the crossfire between Indian security forces, Pakistani militants, and separatists, they are the victims of constant threats and intimidation from all sides, and these have even gone as far as murder,” says Robert Ménard, Secretary-General of Reporters Without Borders.At 7.00 p.m. on 17 September, two young men entered Sofi’s office in Srinagar, the summer capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, and opened fire on him. The journalist sustained a bullet injury to his right hand and his personal security officer was hit by a bullet in the leg as he attempted to intervene. The assailants have not been identified.The Srinagar Times supported the electoral process which opened on 16 September and which should result in the designation of a new state assembly. The elections are contested by many Pakistani and separatist militants however, who see them as legitimising the Indian presence. Just hours before the attack on Sofi, the United Jehad Council, a Pakistani organisation, had criticised several local newspapers for their pro-Indian coverage of the elections, and warned that they were “aware of the black sheep among journalists” and that these should “mend their ways”.In May 2002, Zafar Iqbal, a journalist for the English-language daily Kashmir Images was seriously injured in an attack by unidentified assailants. Since 1989, at least 12 journalists have been killed in the part of Kashmir under Indian administration.

The Question Isn’t Who Is Going To Let Me; It’s Who Is Going To Stop Me

With the recent dazzling victory of Priya Ramani against being prosecuted for defamation by a man who exploited his position of power to dominate a naïve entrant, we may get the feeling that with each passing year women in India are standing up to what they would negatively countenance. It is only a matter of pitiable irony that a woman not belonging to the crest of the urban mainstream (an unthinkably large number) cannot assert herself as an individual when her partner forces himself like an starved savage animal; to put it in other words a woman has no freedom of her body & cannot desist against her own husband from using brute force to satisfy his lust and this manly force applies across the board, uniformly notwithstanding caste, class, education, background, religious belief and lastly in utter disregard for an woman’s wishes. Most recently, no less than the Chief Justice of India remarked while hearing a case between a couple – “However, brutal the husband is, can the act of sexual intercourse be called rape?” It is a grim reminder that our country still needs much introspection and that persons in any place of power-right from a Panchayat or District Collector upwards to the P.M.O need to be amenable, admitting and brave enough to own up to holding a redundant view which needs a relook to keep up with a transformative society. This instance also compels one to recall the glittering words of sociologist & thinker Dean Stone who succinctly with great clarity described the ideal future of sociological jurisprudence as something ‘which can be taught and expounded so as to make it a methodological guide either to the student of law or to the judge. It warns the judge or the student of law that logic and history cannot and ought not to have the full sway when the dynamic judgment is to be rendered. It points out that in the choice of the particular device determining the result -social utility- the mores of the times, objectively determined, may properly turn the scale in favour of one against the other.’ If someone sketches only a rosy picture of women in India, I’m often infuriated by the simple reason of the identity of my interlocutor who is either an accomplished woman or a smug man. The truth of the matter is that although it is a daily battleground for the working woman, there has been little concerning the real rural woman that would bring a smile to the face. The last year has posed a perilous problem globally which has further endangered the position of the already struggling majority of women of India. Bleak visuals splashed across newspapers and social media which proved the en masse existence of crippling poverty in our country, far from espousing the cause of feminism and equality, the common educated urban who is habituated to question the prevailing complacencies was stumped in a trance of speechlessness when she felt the helplessness that the average Indian struggling in the big cities to build a respectable livelihood had to straddle back afoot their journeys to their hometowns. In this exodus, which was rather avoidable there was one image on the internet that stuck in my head was that of a woman with her clothes & utensils in one hand and holding the hand of her wailing child who did not want to walk further due to the heat and that woman although exhausted she carried the child and mollified it till it became silent- this scene to my mind was the most descriptive of a woman’s compassion even in a terrible situation where life itself seems at the cusp of extinction. Another happening that fortified my positive belief in the determination of the angry youth was the news of a 15 year-old girl Jyoti who rode for 7 years over 1200 kilometers with her father on the backseat to reach her native. In the previous year we also witnessed an open slaughtering of the character of a woman named Rhea Chakroborty who was outstripped of her dignity by a ruthless media who made abhorrent accusations on her complicity in the unnatural death of her former boyfriend and actor Sushant Singh Rajput- from performing black magic on him to spiking his medicines and food the Court of public opinion was muddled with everything but sense and logic. Forgetting every shred of journalistic ethic as coded by the Press Council of India, a woman’s reputation and her very existence was mocked, sullied and her character marauded. This very act of exaggeration and illogical speculation destroyed any possible future career that girl had- her family and friends also made to share the spectacle and every woman who supported Rhea against violation of her rights also cornered on television by painting them with the same hue as Rhea. This irresponsible reportage unfortunately hacked at the responsible works done in the field of equality and human liberties over a grueling period of time by perpetuating the stereotype that an educated, outgoing, unconventional, working, ambitious, woman is somewhat a threat to a successful man and is someone hawking at the riches and sponging off of the man. Contrasting this, journalist, Siddique Kappan who travelled to Hathras in Uttar Pradesh after the gory rape of a 19 year-old Dalit girl whose body was burnt in the dead of night by the police against the wishes and consent of her family, and he was detained under the National Security Act for allegedly possessing material & content detrimental to the security of the country. And to put it in simple terms, here a man who tried to bring out the truth about a skin- crawling attack on a woman resulting in her death and the unforgivable conduct of the police was silenced by being tossed in the lock-up under the gravest of charge. The youth of this country do offer a promising light at the end of the tunnel, in the last one year we have seen an undeterred crop of students who simply do not care for the formidability of the State & the far reaching excesses which inhere in it, be is a Safoora Zargar, the 28 year old student activist who was jailed under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act for discharging the role of a “key conspirator” in the CAA protests, she endured the larger part of her pregnancy period serving as an undertrial until she was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on humanitarian grounds; or be it Disha Ravi or Nodeep Kaur, both under the age of 25, both protesting against the new farm laws & booked under similar charges of sedition & creating disaffection amongst religious groups are recent examples belonging from diverse places in the country are symbols of exemplary courage for their continued resistance in what they believe to be the truthful and morally correct stance. They are definitely not the only ones who have spoken their mind out in favour of egalitarian forms of dialogue and action but they are the prominent ones leading the way for the youth to quit their state of dormancy and awake to resist if not challenge the realities of societal inequalities, the normative political correctness, the culture of conformity, the conservative dated notions of factions, the radicalization of ideologies, the decried practices of indigenous & non- indigenous communities and the shortsighted yet deeply fractured understandings of a majority of nameless, faceless, voiceless individuals who hope not for any great miracle to wish all this away but only hope to sustain with dignity in their lives. I would like to conclude by saying that this women’s day take up an oath to make one needy person’s life more positive and bring a smile in their lives, in any way you can- be it financially, professionally, educationally or just by listening to them and do the bare minimum of respecting their point of view & understand where their point of view comes from .

Festive fir

first_imgEasy-to-make edible breads over seasonal periods are a sure-fire winner. I demonstrated this technique at the Bakers’ Fair and everyone was amazed at how simple, but effective these breads were.Decorative breads should have centre stage in bakery window displays. They are fantastic added-value, considering the dough could be made from white bloomer dough, and only take a maximum of 40 seconds longer to make than a regular bloomer.By following my easy-step guide, you could make your seasonal display a focal point to draw in the customers and place a hefty mark-up on sales through the simple effective results.IngredientsBread Flour 1,000gWater 600gSalt 18gBlock yeast 15gMilk powder 30gButter 30gImprover* 10gOptional – if omitted then bulk ferment 1 hourOr use your own bloomer recipeMethod (see overleaf)1. Scale at 320g, round the dough and leave to rest for about 10 minutes (image A).2. Roll the ball, so it has a point at one end and remains ball-shaped at the other (B).3. Using a scraper, cut a small piece of the ball end off and save. This is the flowerpot base (C).4. Slightly flatten the rest, so it resembles a triangle, then wet and dip into desired seeds or grains (D).5. Using scissors, snip away in horizontal lines to form a hedgehog cut (E).6. Next, using a scraper, decorate the flowerpot and present it back to the rest of the dough (F).7. Dust with flour (G) and prove for 2 hours at 22?C and bake for 16 minutes at 220?C (H).Tip: You can bake at 80% and freeze to suit production peaks and troughs. This will help to improve your availability and drive profit.last_img read more
