In a controversial remark, a BJP MLA from this district has said that once India becomes a “Hindu rashtra”, only those Muslims will stay in the country who assimilate into the Hindu culture.
“There are a very few Muslims who are patriotic. Once India becomes a Hindu rashtra (Hindu nation), Muslims who assimilate into our culture will stay in India. Those who will not are free to take asylum in any other country,” Bairia MLA Surendra Singh told reporters here last night.

A Bahrain-bound NRI has been stranded at the Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport for the past three days after his handbag containing his passport was mistakenly taken away by a passenger to Canada.

The flight had already departed by then,” said Singh, a US national, working in Bahrain. The Canada-bound passenger had reportedly taken Singh’s bag leaving his own behind. Continue reading

Four rapes, mostly of minors, in the last four days in Haryana have raised serious questions about women’s safety in the northern state.
The assaults on women and girls — and mutilation of their private parts, in some cases — remind of the brutal gang rape and murder of a physiotherapy student in Delhi in December 2016 that led to a huge uproar across the country. Delhi was then called the rape capital of the country.
For Haryana, which has been known for a very poor sex ratio, the incidents come at a time when the Manohar Lal Khattar-led BJP government announced that the number of girls born in the state had touched an all-time high of 914 per 1,000 boys in 2017. Continue reading
