Myanmar cannot be trusted to put its own soldiers on trial - Gambia

Myanmar cannot be trusted to hold its soldiers accountable for alleged atrocities against its Rohingya Muslim minority, and measures to stop the violence need to be taken immediately, a lawyer presenting a genocide case against it said on Thursday.

PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES Speaking on the third and final day of hearings at the International Court of Justice in the case brought by Gambia under the 1948 Genocide Convention, the west African country's lead lawyer, Paul Reichler, repeated its demand for "provisional measures" to restrain the Myanmar military until the case is heard in full.

Reichler said Myanmar had not even tried during the hearings to deny most of the accusations of extreme violence made against its military, known officially as the Tatmadaw, nor of the mass deportation of Rohingya following a 2017 crackdown.

Gambia's attorney Abubacarr Marie Tambadou maintained there was evidence of genocidal acts against the Rohingya, adding that the case is now "in the hands of the court."

Owaisi challenged the BJP and said that they have 24 hours to name Pakistanis residing in the area. ‘The BJP leader said they will conduct surgical strikes and flush out Pakistanis and Rohingyas.

‘Muslim boys should consider Hindu girls as their sisters’: SP leader

Samajwadi Party (SP) MP from Moradabad ST Hasan called ‘Love Jihad’ a political stunt and asked Muslim boys to consider Hindu girls their ‘sisters’. He said, “Love Jihad is a political stunt. In our country, people choose their life partners irrespective of religion. Hindus marry Muslims and vice versa. However, the numbers are very low. But if you dig deep into 'love jihad' cases, you would find that girls know that boys are Muslims. But due to societal pressure or internal issues in the family, they lie and it becomes a case of Love Jihad.” He added, "I advise Muslim boys to consider Hindu girls as their sisters. Don't get lured, because a law has been framed under which you could be subjected to tremendous torture. Save yourself and don't get into any temptation or love.” Watch the full video for more.
