  2. Time and again, Shah Rukh Khan has made India proud. He isn't just Bollywood's King Khan but also a global star who's loved by everyone around the world. He is an amazing actor, performer, and producer, but what makes him extraordinary is his involvement in humanitarian work. Unlike many, he doesn't publicly talk about his initiatives. But that doesn't mean people don't notice the change he is trying to bring. For all the work that he has done towards children and women rights in India, the actor is now being honoured with World Economic Forum's (WEF) Crystal Award.

  3. For a lot of people, New Year's Eve means watching a plethora of Bollywood award shows that the end of the year brings. However, over the past few years, these award shows have earned a nasty reputation for themselves due to a variety of reasons. You might recall that only recently, Zee Cine Awards became the butt of jokes as they awarded 'Golmaal Again' the “best movie of the year” and Varun Dhawan the “best actor of the year”. And just when we thought it can't get worse than this, Star Screen Awards stepped up. (c) Twitter Now it's great to see new talent being appreciated and we don't mind new award categories being created for this purpose. But creating nonsensical award categories for actors who have been working in the industry for years now is downright absurd. This year, the Star Screen Awards introduced a 'Nothing to Hide' award and the recipients of the same were Kriti Sanon and Shahid Kapoor. Congratulations @kritisanon and @shahidkapoor on winning the nothing to hide award.#StarScreenAwards pic.twitter.com/yD4BV1RVwQ — STAR PLUS (@StarPlus) December 31, 2017 And Twitter, of course, was not amused. 1. Return Gift Toh Banta Hai. Oscars Jury: It's a tough call. We can select any one winner. There are huge expectations. Indian awards: Kaun se actors aa rahe hain?

You Are A Savior! #StarScreenAwards has a category called 'nothing to hide award'. It is apparently for actors who share their personal lives with 'fans' on social media regularly ð. They gave the award to Shahid and Kriti. Afterall nobody should go empty handed ðð — Suchita (@Suchita_14) December 31, 2017 Now that we know what it means, we genuinely feel that it's high time for these award shows to step up their game.

  5. While some of us dressed as Santa (not by choice) to entertain the younger kids at home, and some were busy working or making separate groups on WhatsApp (with party written in caps) in hopes that someone will meet, the rest were actually partying and celebrating Christmas. Our beloved Bollywood stars belong to the latter part of the world and unless you broke your phone in anger over your botched plan, you would have seen their party pictures by now. From Karan Johar, Taimur Ali Khan and Kapoor Family, Akshay Kumar and other celebrities, almost everyone has posted pictures and videos from their Christmas party. © Instagram And the latest participants in this Christmas party marathon are Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan. Ever since their wedding in November, Sagarika and Zaheer have never really switched off their party mode and we are not complaining! At least we get to enjoy their party virtually, if not physically (since they always forget to invite us anyway). Thank you Arshad and Maria for the best Christmas dinner - to good times and laughter. Merry Christmas â¤ï¸ @yuvisofficial @zaheer_khan34 @mariagorettiz A post shared by Sagarika (@sagarikaghatge) on Dec 25, 2017 at 12:58pm PST Forget best actor/ actress or best movie; if there was ever an award for the 'best party animal', newlyweds Zaheer Khan and Sagarika Ghatge will undoubtedly take home that prize. This couple sure knows how to party like there's no tomorrow and then make people burn with jealousy looking at their party pictures. Although, some might argue that 'goals' is too strong a word to use here, but Sagarika and Zaheer are actually giving us both relationship and party goals. Merry Christmas â¤ï¸ @amritakak love the dress - thank you ðððð A post shared by Sagarika (@sagarikaghatge) on Dec 25, 2017 at 3:46am PST The couple's party friend list included Yuvraj Singh, Aashish Chaudhary and Ashish Nehra among others. Merry Christmas from the mother and the boys ð©‍ð¦‍ð¦ A post shared by Sagarika (@sagarikaghatge) on Dec 25, 2017 at 11:16am PST Although Sagarika Ghatge and Zaheer Khan opted for a small wedding ceremony with close friends and family members, their post wedding and reception parties have been larger than life with moments like Virat and Anushka's epic dance, which we all will remember for many days to come. Also, now that Virushka is hosting a grand reception party today, one can only expect craziness to skyrocket and hit the roof.
  6. A Brazilian activist who helped thousands of people in the Amazon rainforest to use their land sustainably won an international environmental award on Wednesday. Despite threats from logging companies, Maria Margarida Ribeiro da Silva, from the northern state of Pará, has been campaigning for more than a decade for the right of local people to use land for hunting, fishing and harvesting wild plants. Ribeiro da Silva, who lives on the Verde para Sempre Extractive Reserve, a 1.3 million hectare area protected by the government, helped persuade officials to allow the community to manage the forest, including cutting and selling timber. ?I hope that this award will help to guarantee the continuity of support (for) the Amazonian communities in their work to protect the forests for future generations,? she said in a statement. She was awarded the $20,000 Wangari Maathai Forest Champions Award - an annual prize named after the late Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize winner and environmentalist - at the Global Landscapes Forum in Bonn, a conference on sustainable land use.

  10. Nepotism is like a fashion trend that is 'hot' in B-town right now. Karan Johar has been branded as the torchbearer of it and is continuing the legacy. The latest backlash that his production company received was when the next project cum debut launch pad for Jhanvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar was announced. They both are making their debut with 'Dhadak'. #धड़ठ#dhadak A post shared by Ishaan Khatter (@ishaan95) on Nov 15, 2017 at 4:04am PST Ishaan, who is Shahid's brother is already going places. He has been travelling across film festivals with Majid Majid and the team of 'Beyond The Clouds' which is his debut. Even before his maiden Bollywood debut sees the light of the day, Ishaan has earned a fabulous reputation for his work. He has been awarded with the 'best actor' at the International Bosphorus Film Festival. Huge congratulations to ISHAAN on his very first Best Actor award! #BoÄaziciFilmFestivali ....so proud of you!!! And many more to come..... pic.twitter.com/L45JbsMIDu — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) November 27, 2017 This is Istanbul's most prestigious film festival and it surely is a big deal.

He might be associated to nepotism, but he surely has the fine talent which comes with pure hard work.
  11. Whether it was Argentinean talisman Diego Maradona or Brazilian veteran Pele, the pulsating game of football has witnessed many players etching their names in the history books as legends in different eras of the sport. Their long-range screamers got us on our feet, while the penalties they missed left us teary-eyed. But, football as a sport has rapidly evolved over the years with the ever-increasing level of competition demanding the best from athletes. And, in the modern era, no one has managed to dominate the game the way Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have for almost a decade now. Sharing one of the fiercest rivalries on the pitch, both Ronaldo and Messi have raised the bar to such a level where others - irrespective of their personal feats - seem just mediocre. If Ronaldo scores 50-odd goals in a single season, Messi goes on to make it 60 next year. When Messi hits a brace for Barcelona, Ronaldo can't help but pull off a hat-trick for Real Madrid. © Reuters Their never-ending battle to reign supreme witnesses new records being created, only to get shattered by them. And, the fact that they share nine Ballon d'Or awards between them shows the level of competition the pair brings to the game. While Messi staked his claim as the best with five Ballon d'Or awards, Ronaldo has been hot on his heels with four wins of his own. With this year's Ballon d'Or awards scheduled to be announced on 7th December, the football fraternity is anxious to determine whether Ronaldo can draw level with Messi, making it five wins apiece, or will it be the Argentine who'd extend his tally of the coveted award. © Reuters However, if the recent reports are to be believed, Ronaldo has reportedly been selected as this year's winner which means he will walk out of the prestigious awards ceremony with his fifth win next month. And, elated to find himself the winner, Ronaldo even made a secret phone call to Messi to tell him that he has won the award this year. According to Spanish newpaper Don Balon, the Real Madrid star called Messi to inform him about the same, ahead of next month's awards ceremony. Despite being fierce rivals on the pitch, both the players share mutual respect off it which is why Ronaldo's call to the Argentine has been interpreted out of respect, with Messi, too, congratulating him on his achievement. © Reuters The latest reports come in the wake of a leaked screenshot of the front cover of the France Football magazine - which runs the Ballon d'Or awards ceremony - that featured Messi with the award. While many believed Messi would go on to clinch his sixth Ballon d'Or this year, reports of the Spanish newspaper has made us believe otherwise. Many would label their duel as two superstars chasing personal glory, but for those who are smitten by the beautiful game; this year's Ballon d'Or could very well take the rivalry between Ronaldo and Messi to a new level. Whether you're a fan or not, Ronaldo's win next month (if there's one) will not only help him draw level with his rival, but it could also mean that 2018 will be a close-fought battle between the two - eventually bringing out their best and blessing football with their mercurial displays of talent.
  12. Pakistan film Saawan took home the best foreign film award at the 11th annual Alexandria Film Festival held in Virginia, USA. ?I am proud to announce that Saawan has won Best Foreign Film Award at the 11th annual Alexandria Film Festival held in Virginia, USA. Congratulation team Saawan on another win,? director Farhan Alam wrote on his Facebook page. The movie has been well received and the Pakistani Academy Selection Committee nominating it for Oscar consideration in the Foreign Language Film Award category for the 2018 Academy Awards. Saawan director Farhan Alam at the Alexandria Film Festival - Facebook Saawan, directed by Farhan Alam and written and produced by Mashood Qadri, is based on a true story of a disabled child who lives in a valley in the mountains of Balochistan. He is rejected by his father, intimidated by society, harassed by friends and left alone due to his disability. Strengthened by memories and dreams of the love of his mother, he begins a perilous journey back to his family in the main city. The film features Saleem Mairaj, Syed Karam Abbas, Arif Bahalim, Najiba Faiz and Imran Aslam in the lead roles. The other cast includes Tipu Sharif, Hafeez Ali, Sehrish Qadri, Sohail Malik, Shahid Niazmi, Muhammad Abbas, Danial Yunus, Mehek Zulfiqar and Syed Muhammad Ali. The film won 'Best Foreign Language Feature Film' award at the Madrid International Film Festival 2017 and the ?Best Film? and ?Best Soundtrack Award? at Salento International Film Festival in Italy earlier this year.
  13. For the second year in a row, Cristiano Ronaldo has been crowned FIFA's men's player of the year, but the one thing that stole the show – and everyone's hearts – was Lionel Messi's reaction. Marking his fifth individual FIFA award overall, the Real Madrid star beat his Barcelona rival, as well as Neymar, to take home the prize. Moreover, he didn't forget to tip his hat to Messi, who pushed him all the way last season, saying, “Thank you, the guys who voted on me. And a mention to Lionel [Messi] and Neymar.” © Twitter He continued, "My team-mates, my coach, my president, they support all the year so I say thank you to them. We are in England for the first time and I win consecutive efforts so it is a great moment for me. I appreciate the support, thank you very much. It's great to be here around these amazing players. I'm so happy, guys. Thank you very much.” Even though he didn't win, Messi proved what a classy guy he is with his reaction. He had a big smile and not even a hint of jealousy or anger as he watched Ronaldo collect his prize. His reaction immediately started getting a lot of praise online with people just being in awe of how humble he actually is. People started comparing his reaction to when Ronaldo watched Messi win one of his five Ballon d'Ors. Cristiano's reaction when Messi won the Ballon d'or vs Messi's reaction to Ronaldo winning it. The difference is called class. pic.twitter.com/VxtdUfb5l0 — FC Barcelona (@BarcaUniversal) October 24, 2017 Comparisons and praise was everywhere. This was Messi's reaction to Ronaldo winning.

  14. Syrian video journalist Waad Al Kateab. Image Courtesy: CNN Video LONDON: Syrian video journalist Waad Al Kateab on Monday won Britain's prestigious Rory Peck award for her horrific footage inside an Aleppo hospital in the aftermath of a deadly bombing. Al Kateab was awarded for her coverage inside east Aleppo's last functioning hospital, Al-Quds, in November 2016 as the rebel-held zone starting falling to the Syrian regime. Her footage "shows us so powerfully the horrors of war", said judges for the Rory Peck Trust, which supports freelancers globally. "I've seen this at least five times, and it still makes we well up. It is an exemplary piece of journalism." The harrowing footage from what was once Syria's most populous city, broadcast by Channel 4 News and ITN, opens with a traumatised toddler who sits silent and covered in dust as a woman tries to comfort him. "Oh my God! All my children are gone," cries the woman with blood down her face, the only adult of three families to survive the bombing of their apartment block. Following survivors of the attack around the hospital, Kateab filmed two young siblings searching for their mother; the children described by the narrator as "exhausted beyond words, by a life beyond description". Accepting the award, Kateab said her "only concern was that our story gets told". "Everything that happened in Aleppo is happening all over again," she said, addressing the audience from behind the scenes to protect her identity for security reasons. Kateab studied at Aleppo University and taught herself how to film, while she received further training from NGOs, Deutsche Welle Academy and Orient TV. Her reports from Aleppo have collectively been viewed by over 400 million people, the Rory Peck Trust said. East Aleppo was seized by the armed opposition in July 2012 and the city was recaptured by the Syrian army last December, following a devastating five-month siege. More than 330,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began with anti-government protests in March 2011.

Veteran Juventus and Italy shot-stopper Buffon topped a three-strong shortlist for the goalkeeper award ahead of Real´s Keylor Navas and Bayern Munich´s Manuel Neuer. "I have to speak in English, it is a difficult moment," said the 39-year-old Buffon. "It is a great honour to receive this award at my age. I am proud. "The last year has been fantastic for Juventus and for me personally. It wasn´t enough to win in Europe. "I would like to finish with a fantastic victory for Italy next summer (at the 2018 World Cup in Russia)." Monday also saw the Puskas Award for the best goal of 2017 go to Arsenal´s Olivier Giroud. The France striker received the award named in honour of Hungary great Ferenc Puskas for a spectacular ´scorpion-kick´ against Crystal Palace in January. "I´m delighted to receive this trophy today in front of legends of football," said Giroud. The Frenchman´s flicked volley with his left foot that went in off the crossbar won ahead of goals from Venezuela´s Deyna Castellanos, 18, and South African goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke. Meanwhile tournament hosts the Netherlands´ achievement in winning their first major female football title, the 2017 Women´s European Championship, was recognised with Women´s Coach of the Year and Player of the Year awards for Sarina Wiegman and Lieke Martens respectively. Wiegman and Martens were unable to receive their awards in London as the Netherlands are playing Norway on Tuesday. The voting for the Best FIFA awards, equally weighted between national team captains, national team coaches, media and fans, closed last month.
  16. Cristiano Ronaldo´s stunning last season saw him win the 2017 Best FIFA men´s player of the year trophy as Real Madrid dominated a star-studded awards ceremony in London on Monday. The Portuguese ace, who has scored 44 goals in just 48 games for club and country so far this calendar year, played a major role in Real winning both La Liga and the Champions League. He scored twice in a 4-1 win over Juventus in the continental final at Cardiff´s Millennium Stadium on June 3. Real boss Zinedine Zidane took the corresponding manager of the year award, with the Spanish giants providing five players in the FIFA team of the year. Ronaldo won the inaugural Best FIFA men´s player of the year award last year following the end of a six-year merger between the FIFA honour and the Ballon D´Or. This year he saw off competition from longstanding Barcelona rival Lionel Messi and Paris Saint-Germain´s Neymar, with former Manchester United favourite Ronaldo receiving his trophy from Argentina great Diego Maradona and Brazil´s Ronaldo in a star-studded ceremony at the London Palladium theatre. "Thanks a lot for voting for me," said the Portuguese superstar. "I mention Leo and Neymar, great to be here. Real Madrid supporters, my team-mates, my coach, they all support me all year. "We are in England for the first time and I win consecutive awards," he added. "I am really glad, this is a great moment for me. I have fans all over the world." Zidane won out ahead of Chelsea´s Antonio Conte and Juventus´s Massimiliano Allegri to be crowned men´s coach of the year after becoming the first man to oversee a successful defence of the European Cup in the Champions League era. "I´d like to thank all of the players for making this possible," said Zidane. "This is a very special prize." Real´s superb campaign was recognised in a FIFA XI that featured Ronaldo and club-mates Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Marcelo and Sergio Ramos. The team was completed by goalkeeper of the year Gianluigi Buffon, Leonardo Bonucci, Dani Alves, Andres Iniesta, Messi and Neymar.
  17. Canadian poet, critic and novelist Margaret Atwood received this year's international Franz Kafka literary prize at a ceremony in Prague on Tuesday, which honoured the lifetime achievements of "The Handmaid's Tale" author. "I think this one is quite special because the first free-standing literary essay that I wrote that was not for school was about Franz Kafka back in the 1950s," Atwood told AFP. "At that time I read not only his biography but all of his work and I remember it very well," she added before receiving the $10,000 (8,500 euros) prize. "He also of course in retrospect seemed quite prophetic, not only about the Nazi regime, but also about the behaviour of the USSR." "He was suppressed in this country by both of those regimes so for people interested in freedom of expression and openness in publication, he was an icon at that time," Atwood said. The 77-year-old Atwood's prolific career, spanning decades, has included the publication of 17 novels, seven children's books and nearly two dozen books of poetry. "The Handmaid's Tale," Atwood's best-known work about a totalitarian society, has inspired a film, a ballet, an opera and most recently, a television series starring Elizabeth Moss that swept last month's Emmy Awards. Published in 1985, the novel is often mentioned in the same breath as George Orwell's "1984," Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" and other dystopian works of speculative fiction. It turned Atwood into a feminist icon. Her other notable novels include "The Edible Woman" (1969), "Cat's Eye" (1988), "The Robber Bride" (1993) and "Oryx and Crake" (2003). In 2000, Atwood won the Booker Prize -- Britain's top literary award -- for "The Blind Assassin." The Kafka Prize, named after the famous Prague-born writer of such 20th century classics as "The Trial", "Metamorphosis" and "The Castle", was first awarded by the Prague-based Franz Kafka society in 2001. Previous winners include Japanese author Haruki Murakami, Israeli writer Amos Oz, US novelist Philip Roth, British playwright Harold Pinter, French poet Yves Bonnefoy and Czech playwright and former president Vaclav Havel.
  18. Parents always want to protect their kids from anything and everything under the sun and it's quite understandable, because they want to keep them secure. Reasonable. But what happens when this love triggers their overprotective instincts and they set out to control their kids' lives? We guess John Cena, Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz might be in a better position to answer this, since that's exactly what they will be doing in the upcoming comedy movie 'Blockers'. © Universal Pictures Since time immemorial, Hollywood has been making big bucks by stressing on the importance of prom night in teenagers' lives and how their parents freak out, imagining their kids losing their virginity one fine day (or should we say night). So what makes this one special that the rest? The mighty John Cena as an overprotective dad, who even dares to chug beer through his (I can't even) butt for his daughter? Of course! But this isn't the only 'special' element. The movie smartly plays around the concept of using emojis for conveying sexual messages – you know just millennial things – and how poor parents are trying hard to decode those *** emojis. © Universal Pictures The premise of the movie is slightly cliché; a trio of parents who have seen their daughters grow up together, stumble upon a group chat where the daughters are busy chatting through emojis. Turns out, the three have signed a '*** pact' where they will lose their virginity on their prom night. Well, definitely the shock was bigger than walking in on kids masturbating. So the parents decided to ruin the prom night for their kids and go to extreme lengths to stop them from having ***. We wonder if the thought of teaching their kids to have safe *** ever crossed their minds, it could have been a less painful option, especially for John Cena. While Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz share a great comic timing, professional wrestler John Cena managed to tickle our funny bones as well with his hilarious antics. 'Pitch Perfect' writer Kay Cannon wears the Director's hat for this film which stars Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlan as the beautiful daughters. The coming-of-age comedy movie is expected to release on April 6, 2018.
  19. With a hoodie over his head and visceral anger in his voice, Eminem rapped freestyle from inside a parking ramp as an entourage stood guard behind him. MIAMI: Eminem savaged US President Donald Trump as a racist and warned fans not to support the US president as the rap superstar appeared at the BET Hip Hop Awards broadcast Tuesday. Eminem, the top-selling rapper of all time, made a rare and unexpected appearance in a recorded video aired during hip-hop´s premier awards show. With a hoodie over his head and visceral anger in his voice, Eminem rapped freestyle from inside a parking ramp as an entourage stood guard behind him. Eminem in his profanity-laden salvo decried Trump as both incompetent and prejudiced, rapping: "Racism´s the only thing he´s fantastic for." "We better give Obama props / ´Cause what we got in office now´s a kamikaze / That´ll probably cause a nuclear holocaust," Eminem said in a likely reference to Trump´s Twitter war of words with North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un. Eminem, who is by far the most successful white rapper, ends the video by demanding that his fans forswear Trump. "Any fan of mine who´s a supporter of his -- I´m drawing a line in the sand / You´re either for or against," he said. Eminem pledged solidarity with former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose protests against racism during the US national anthem have triggered an intensifying row as Trump demands that athletes stand for the flag. Trump "gets an enormous reaction when he attacks the NFL / So we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun control for Nevada," Eminem rapped, referring to the devastation of Hurricane Maria and the massacre at a concert in Las Vegas. "All these horrible tragedies and he´s bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers," Eminem quipped. "Now if you´re a black athlete you´re a spoiled little brat for trying to use your platform or stature to try to give those a voice who don´t have one," he said. Eminem, whose music is rarely overtly political, made the intervention a year after releasing his last song -- also a denunciation of Trump recorded in the run-up to the election. Eminem´s longtime producer Denaun Porter recently said that the 44-year-old rapper had completed an album, which would be his first since 2013. BET, which stands for Black Entertainment Television, broadcast the awards four days after the gala took place in Miami. Cardi B, who has quickly become one of the top women in hip-hop, ruled the night with five awards including best single or her debut track "Bodak Yellow." Kendrick Lamar, who triumphed at the latest MTV Video Music Awards, came in a close second with four trophies.
  20. Olivier Giroud?s scorpion kick strike for Arsenal against Crystal Palace last season was shortlisted for FIFA?s goal of the year award on Monday, alongside efforts from Venezuelan teenager Deyna Castellanos and goalkeeper Oscarine Masuluke. Giroud scored with an improvised volley in the Premier League match on Jan. 1, producing an acrobatic flick with his left heel to convert Alexis Sanchez?s cross into the net off the crossbar while tumbling forward. Arsenal won the match 2-0 and Giroud, who admitted afterwards that he had a bit of luck with his connection, said it was the best goal he had ever scored. The 31-year-old is the seventh Frenchman to be nominated for the award but the first to make the final shortlist of three, world soccer?s governing body said on its website. Castellanos is the second Venezuelan woman in successive years to make the final three and was nominated for her strike from the halfway line against Cameroon at the U-17 Women?s World Cup in Jordan last year. The 18-year-old follows in the footsteps of compatriot Daniuska Rodriguez, whose goal made the final three for last year?s award but lost out to Malaysian Mohd Faiz Subri?s spectacular 35-metre, swerving free-kick. South Africa?s Masuluke is the first goalkeeper as well as the first player from Africa to make it to the final three for his last minute bicycle-kick equaliser for Baroka FC against Orlando Pirates last year. The winner of the award, named after the late Hungary captain Ferenc Puskas, will be decided by the public and announced at FIFA?s annual player of the year ceremony in London on Oct. 23.
  21. Gulalai Ismail Gulalai Ismail, a women's rights activist from Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, has been awarded the Reach All Women in War (RAW) Anna Politkovskaya Award alongside the late Indian journalist, Gauri Lankesh. At the age of 16, Gulalai co-founded a non-governmental organisation, Aware Girls, with her sister Saba Ismail in 2002. The organisation aims to challenge cultural violence and oppression of women in rural Khyber Pakhtunkhwa by strengthening leadership skills of young people, especially women and girls. Driven by a passion to challenge inequality, intolerance and extremism, Aware Girls began running workshops to enable girls and young women to challenge oppression and fight for their rights to education and equal opportunities. Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai was an attendee of Aware Girls programmes in 2011. Malala, who won the Anna Politkovskaya Award in 2013, paid tribute to Gulalai on the accolade. ?I am proud to support my sister Gulalai Ismail, a fearless advocate for girls? education and equality in Pakistan. Through Aware Girls, Gulalai is training young women to advocate for their rights. Her work is fostering the next generation of female leaders in our country. Despite discrimination and danger, Gulalai is continuing her fight to see every girl to go to school. She has been my friend for many years and I wish her congratulations on this distinguished honour.? Malala?s father Ziauddin Yousafzai also congratulated Gulalai, terming her a brave activist. Indian journalist Gauri Lankesh ? a known critic of right-wing groups ? was fatally shot by unidentified attackers in Bengaluru in September. The Anna Politkovskaya Award was established to remember and honour Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, who was murdered in Moscow on October 7, 2006 over her reportage of the second war in Chechnya. She was 48 years old.
  22. LONDON: Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been stripped of a human rights award by the City of Oxford, where she was an undergraduate, as British institutions increasingly distance themselves from the beleaguered former rights icon. Oxford City Council voted unanimously this week to recommend Suu Kyi?s Freedom of the City award be withdrawn, citing deep concerns over the treatment of Rohingya Muslims under her watch. The city?s reputation is ?tarnished by honoring those who turn a blind eye to violence,? local councilor and Labour party member Mary Clarkson said in a speech proposing the motion. Over 500,000 members of Myanmar?s Rohingya minority have fled across the border to Bangladesh since late August, when Rohingya attacks led to a violent crackdown by the army. Myanmar?s de facto leader Suu Kyi, previously renowned for her human rights activism, has been widely criticized for her silence on the subject. ?While the UN calls the situation a ?textbook example of ethnic cleansing?, Aung San Suu Kyi denies any ethnic cleansing and dismisses numerous claims of sexual violence against Rohingya women as ?fake rape,'? Clarkson said. In a speech in late September, her first public statement on the subject since the exodus of refugees began, Suu Kyi said her government condemned all human rights violations and promised to punish perpetrators. But she did not address accusations of ethnic cleansing and did not criticize the army?s actions. Her speech was described as ?little more than a mix of untruths and victim-blaming? by Amnesty International director for the region, James Gomez. Oxford University removes portrait of Aung San Suu Kyi The humanitarian crisis in Myanmar has seen more than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims flee to neighbouring Bangladesh A similar Freedom of the City award is being considered for withdrawal by Sheffield city council in the north of England, after residents submitted a petition last month. The award will likely be reviewed by councillors this month, the council?s democratic services team, which handles petitions, told Reuters. Oxford University college St Hugh?s, Suu Kyi?s alma mater, removed her portrait last week from public display while Unison, Britain?s second-largest trade union, announced last month it would suspend her honorary membership.
  23. NEW DELHI: Indian Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj appealed to the people to help the government in finding the parents of Geeta, a girl with hearing and speech disabilities who had returned to India from Pakistan in October 2015.

Geeta lives in an institute for the hearing and speech impaired in India. Several couples have since then approached the institute, claiming to be the lost girl?s parents but she did not recognize anyone nor were those people able to substantiate their claims, Indian media reported. Geeta was around 11-years-old when Pakistani soldiers found her sitting at the Samjhauta Express station in Lahore. She was then adopted by Pakistani philanthropist Bilquis Edhi and spent over a decade at the Edhi foundation. A temple was built for Geeta where she prayed. Bilquis Edhi wanted her to marry a Hindu boy and settle down in Pakistan but Geeta insisted on marrying only after she had returned to her country.
