  1. Security forces found two groups of terrorists in Makkah and a third group in Jeddah: state TV DUBAI: Saudi security forces foiled an attack on the Grand Mosque in the holy city of Makkah on Friday, state television Al-Ekhbariya and Al Arabiya TV reported. Al Arabiya said security forces had found two groups of terrorists in Makkah and a third group in the city of Jeddah. The foiled attack targetted worshipers at the mosque, it said. Neither Al Arabiya nor Al-Ekhbariya gave any further details.
  2. LONDON: The British van driver who mowed down Muslim worshippers near a London's Finsbury Park mosque this week was charged Friday with terrorism-related murder and attempted murder, officials said. Darren Osborne, 47, will appear before magistrates in central London later Friday in relation to the charges, police and prosecutors said. One man died in the incident early Monday near Finsbury Park Mosque in north London, and another 11 people were injured. Makram Ali, 51, died from multiple injuries following Monday´s attack. He had collapsed with a leg problem and was being attended to by fellow worshippers leaving late-night Ramadan prayers at the mosque when the hired van careered into them. Ali came to Britain from Bangladesh when he was 10. He was married with four daughters and two sons, and had two grandchildren. His family has said they were "devastated" by his death. "Our father was a quiet, gentle man," they said in a statement. The attack was the fourth in Britain in three months, killing a total of 36 people and injuring around 200. The three previous attacks were all militant-linked.
  3. Photo: Reuters Daesh militants on Wednesday blew up the Grand al-Nuri Mosque of Mosul and its famous leaning minaret, Iraq's military said in a statement, as Iraqi forces seeking to expel the group from the city closed in on the site. It was from this medieval mosque three years ago that the militants' leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a self-styled "caliphate" spanning parts of Syria and Iraq. ''Blowing up the al-Hadba minaret and the al-Nuri mosque amounts to an official acknowledgement of defeat,'' Iraqi Prime Minister said in a brief comment on his website. The Iraqis called the 150-foot (45-metre) leaning minaret Al-Hadba, or "the hunchback." Baghdadi's black flag had flown over it since June 2014. Daesh's Amaq news agency accused American aircraft of destroying the mosque, a claim swiftly denied by the US-led coalition fighting the militant group. "We did not strike in that area," coalition spokesman US Air Force Colonel John Dorrian told Reuters by telephone. "The responsibility of this devastation is laid firmly at the doorstep of Daesh," US Army Major General Joseph Martin, commander of the coalition's ground component, said in a statement. The media office for Iraq's military distributed a picture taken from the air that appeared to show the mosque and minaret largely flattened and reduced to rubble among the small houses of the Old City, the historic district where the militants are under siege. A video seen on social media showed the minaret collapsing vertically in a belch of sand and dust, as a woman lamented in the background, "The minaret, the minaret, the minaret." The mosque was destroyed as Iraq's elite Counter Terrorism Service (CTS) units, which have been battling their way through Mosul's Old City, got within 50 meters (164 feet) of it, according to an Iraqi military statement. An Iraqi military spokesman gave the timing of the explosion as 9:35PM (1835 GMT). "This is a crime against the people of Mosul and all of Iraq, and is an example of why this brutal organisation must be annihilated," said US Major General Martin. Iraqi forces said earlier on Wednesday that they had started a push toward the mosque. ''This will not prevent us from removing them, no, killing them not removing them, inside the Old City,'' Lieutenant General Abdul Ghani al-Assadi, senior CTS commander in Mosul, said in a video posted over a messaging app. The forces on Tuesday had encircled the group's stronghold in the Old City, the last district under Daesh control in Mosul.
  4. Robbers looting people observing Aitekaaf in a mosque KARACHI: The provincial metropolis has once again seen an uptick in robbery incidents ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr, with two separate CCTV videos having emerged of robberies. Two robbers, one of them covering face, could be seen in a CCTV video robbing a super store at gunpoint in the Khokhrapar area. Police said that robbers took with them cash worth lacs. Third 'meat-robbery' of year takes place in Karachi This time around a shop near Ayesha Manzil was robbed Robbers shoot and kill security guard in Karachi He resisted them from snatching his gun In another incident in Gulshan-e-Iqbal block 7, robbers stole mobile phones and wallets of people observing Aitekaaf in a mosque. Sindh Home minister Sohail Anwar took notice of the incident after the news was aired and has sought a report from DIG East Arif Hanif. In yet another incident, police arrested a suspect near the Gulistan-e-Johar area at Rashid Minhas road involved in robbing cash worth 1.2 million from a man. According to SP Gulshan Murtaza Bhutto, the police also recovered weapons and a motorcycle from the suspect.
  5. VIRGINIA: A 17-year-old American Muslim girl was beaten and abducted after leaving a mosque in Virginia on Sunday by a man who police later arrested on suspicion of murder after her body was found dumped in a pond, authorities said. The attack spurred an outpouring of grief and horror in a Muslim community that has been gathering to pray at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque about 30 miles outside Washington in observance of the last 10 days of Ramadan. The attack happened early on Sunday after the victim and several friends walking outside the mosque got into a dispute with a motorist in the community of Sterling, the Fairfax County Police Department said in a statement. At one point, the motorist got out of his car and assaulted the girl, police said. The teen was reported missing by her friends who scattered during the attack and could not find her afterwards, touching off an hours-long search by authorities in Fairfax and Loudoun counties. At around 3pm, the remains of a female believed to be the teen victim were found in a pond in Sterling, police said. During the search for the missing teen, authorities stopped a motorist "driving suspiciously in the area" and arrested the driver, later identified as identified as Darwin Martinez Torres, 22. Police obtained a murder warrant that charges Torres for her death, the Fairfax County Police Department said. A police spokeswoman told reporters the attack followed some sort of dispute between the man and the girls, and authorities had not ruled out hate as a motivation for the attack. The number of anti-Muslim bias incidents in the United States jumped 57 percent in 2016 to 2,213, up from 1,409 in 2015, the Council on American-Islamic Relations advocacy group said in a report last month. While the group had been seeing a rise in anti-Muslim incidents prior to Donald Trump's stunning rise in last year's presidential primaries and November election victory, it said the acceleration in bias incidents was due in part to Trump's focus on militant groups and anti-immigrant rhetoric. In an incident in London on Monday, a van ploughed into worshippers leaving a mosque, killing at least one person and injuring several in what Britain's largest Muslim organisation said was a deliberate act of Islamophobia. Isra Chaker, a person who said in a Facebook post that she was close to a family friend of the victim in the Virginia incident, said the driver came out with a baseball bat and began swinging it at the girls, Chaker said. "She then went missing (presumably kidnapped/moved by the suspect) and was found dead this afternoon," Chaker said. An online fundraiser for the girl's family had raised $61,606 by Sunday evening. Police said a medical examiner will conduct an autopsy to confirm the victim's identity and cause of death, though detectives believe the body found in the pond was the missing girl.
  6. Police officers attend to the scene after a vehicle collided with pedestrians near a mosque in the Finsbury Park neighborhood of North London, Britain June 19, 2017. REUTERS/Neil Hall LONDON: A van ploughed into worshippers leaving a London mosque on Monday, killing at least one person and injuring several in what Britain's largest Muslim organisation said was a deliberate act of xenophobia. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said the vehicle hit people as they were leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque, one of the biggest in the country. The attack comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramazan when people attend 'Taraweeh' prayers at night. British Prime Minister Theresa May said police had confirmed it was being treated as a potential terrorist attack and said she would chair an emergency response meeting later on Monday. Police said one man was pronounced dead at the scene and that the van driver, 48, had been detained by members of the public before being arrested. The driver would undergo a mental health assessment in due course, police said. The London Ambulance Service said it had taken eight people to the hospital, while two were treated at the scene. Prime Minister May said her thoughts were with those injured in "this terrible incident". The leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said he was "totally shocked". The MCB said the incident was the most violent manifestation of hatred against Muslims in Britain in recent months and called for extra security at places of worship just as Ramazan near its end. "It appears that a white man in a van intentionally ploughed into a group of worshippers who were already tending to someone who had been taken ill," the council said in a statement. Police said they were called just after 12:20 AM (11:20 PM GMT, Sunday) to reports of a collision on Seven Sisters Road, which runs through the Finsbury Park area of north London. "From the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside. ? Everybody was shouting: 'A van?s hit people, a van?s hit people'," one woman who lives opposite the scene told the BBC. "There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park mosque that seemed to have hit people who were coming out after prayers had finished." The incident comes just over two weeks after three militants drove into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed people at nearby restaurants and bars, killing eight. It also comes at a time of political turmoil, as Prime Minister May plunges into divorce talks with the European Union weakened by the loss of her parliamentary majority in a June 8 election. She has faced heavy criticism for her response to a fire in a London tower block on Wednesday which killed at least 58 people, and for her record on security after a series of attacks blamed on militants in recent months. One witness told CNN it was clear that the attacker at Finsbury Park had deliberately targeted Muslims. "He tried to kill a lot of people so obviously it's a terrorist attack. He targeted Muslims this time," the witness, identified only as Rayan, said. Other witnesses told Sky television that the van had hit at least 10 people. 'Deliberately swerved' Miqdaad Versi, the MCB's assistant secretary-general, said the van had deliberately swerved into a group of people who were helping a man who was ill and had fallen to the ground. "Basically, a van swerved into them deliberately," Versi told Reuters, citing a witness. He said the driver had run out of the van but a group of people caught him and held him until police arrived. Britain has been hit by a series of attacks in recent months, including the van-and-knife attack on London Bridge on June 3. On March 22, a man drove a rented car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a policeman to death before being shot dead. His attack killed five people. On May 22, a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a concert by American pop singer Ariana Grande in Manchester in northern England. The attacks were a factor in campaigning ahead of the June 8 election, with Prime Minister May criticised for overseeing a drop of 20,000 in the number of police officers in England and Wales as interior minister from 2010 to 2016. She was also criticised for keeping her distance from angry residents during her visit to the charred remains of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower. She said on Saturday the response to the fire, in which at least 58 people were killed on Wednesday, had been "not good enough". The Finsbury Park Mosque gained notoriety more than a decade ago for sermons by radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, who was sentenced to life in a US prison in January 2015 for his conviction on terrorism-related charges. A new board of trustees and management took over in February 2005, a year after Abu Hamza was arrested by British police, since when attendance has greatly increased among worshippers from various communities, according to the mosque's website.
  7. LK?Advani (L), Uma Bharti (M) and MM?Joshi (R) were charged with inciting mob violence which led to destruction of Babri Mosque on December 6, 1002. Photo: Hindustan Times LUCKNOW: A special Central Bureau of Investigation court granted on Tuesday bail to former Bharatiya Janata Party leaders LK Advani, MM Joshi, Union Minister Uma Bharti and nine others for demolition of Babri Mosque. The leaders, who have been granted bail against surety bond of INR50,000 each, were charged with inciting violence and instigating violence which led to the demolition of the Babri Mosque on December 6, 1992. However, the accused pleaded guilty to the charges against them. The former BJP leaders have also filed a plea seeking their discharge from the conspiracy charges. The judge reserved the order on that application. India?s top court urges negotiated settlement to end Babri Masjid dispute Court tells all parties to ?give up? some of their demands in order to reach a peaceful solution. Earliers, the CBI court has claimed that it would frame additional charges against LK Advani among other leaders. In 2001, the Allahabad High Court had dropped all conspiracy charges against the former BJP leaders. However, the Supreme Court on April 20, 2017, reinstated the charges and directed special CBI court to frame new charges. Others accused in the case include BJP MP Vinay Katiyar, Sadhvi Ritambara, Vishnu Hari Dalmiya, Ramjanmabhoomi Trust Chief Nritya Gopal Das, Ram Vilas Vedanti, Baikunth Lal Sharma alias Prem Ji, Champat Rai Bansal, Dharma Das and Satish Pradhan.

  9. JAKARTA: US Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday toured the biggest mosque in Muslim-majority Indonesia during a visit seen as a highly symbolic gesture from an administration that has been accused of stoking Islamophobia. After kicking off his stop in the world´s most populous Muslim-majority country by praising its moderate Islam as "an inspiration", he visited Istiqlal Mosque, whose vast white dome towers over downtown Jakarta. He slipped off his shoes before being guided around the mosque, which is also the biggest in Southeast Asia, accompanied by his wife and two daughters in headscarves, as well as Istiqlal´s grand imam. His visit represents the most high-profile outreach to Muslims by the Donald Trump administration since the brash billionaire came to office and echoes a similar trip by Barack and Michelle Obama in 2010. Since becoming president almost 100 days ago, Trump has hosted leaders from majority-Muslim Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. But his administration has also tried to ban travellers from several Muslim-majority nations, citing concerns about terrorism -- an effort currently being challenged in US courts. As a presidential candidate, Trump often appeared to flirt with the far right. But Pence struck a starkly different tone during his visit to Indonesia, which has often been praised as a successful Muslim democracy where most practise a moderate form of Islam and coexist peacefully with substantial religious minorities. "Indonesia´s tradition of moderate Islam is frankly an inspiration to the world and we commend you and your people," he said after talks with President Joko Widodo at the presidential palace in Jakarta. "In your nation as in mine, religion unifies, it doesn´t divide." Pence is currently on a tour of South Korea, Japan, Indonesia and Australia that is aimed at smoothing some of the rougher edges of Trump´s rhetoric. In South Korea and Japan, Pence played down protectionist declarations of "America first" and reaffirmed US treaty commitments to the security of the two countries as tensions rise over Pyongyang´s nuclear programme. After meeting with representatives of the Association of Southeast Asian Nation´s at the regional bloc´s headquarters in Jakarta on Thursday, Pence announced Trump would attend three summits in Asia in November, a further sign that his administration is seeking to reassure regional allies. He will attend the US-ASEAN and East Asia summits in the Philippines and a gathering of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation group in Vietnam. At the mosque in Jakarta, Pence and his family also toured the cavernous main prayer room -- which was empty during his visit but fills up with tens of thousands of worshippers during key dates in the Muslim calender -- and admired the towering dome. A man showed the US leader how he beats a carved drum next to the courtyard, a local addition to the traditional call to prayer. Pence then held an interfaith dialogue behind closed doors with representatives of the Christian, Buddhist, Confucian, Hindu and Muslim faiths. After his talks with Widodo, Pence also said the US was committed to building a stronger defence partnership with Indonesia to combat terrorism, and guaranteeing freedom of navigation in the South China Sea, where Indonesian and Chinese vessels have recently clashed.
  10. In a country where religion has played a pivotal role in separating Hindus and Muslims for the longest time now, Ahmedabad is setting an example that is restoring our faith in religion all over again. In the Kalupur area, people heard azaan from a certain mosque near Bakri Pol for the first time in 30 years and the credit goes to the strong voices from both the communities. The mosque was located near Ramji, Nagdalla Hanuman and Shesh Narayan temples, so the Muslims started avoiding the area after the 1984 communal riots. Things worsened after the demolition of the Babri Masjid in 1993 and this mosque began to crumble. However, after suffering the wrath of the tension, this 100-year-old Kalupur mosque was reopened in March 2016 and in the sound of the prayers, one can even hear hatred getting drowned. This is no ordinary feat because the reopening of this mosque echoes the special bond shared by the Hindus and Muslims in this area, so much so that former even have a set of keys to the mosque. © BCCL It was after the 2002 Gujarat riots that the residents around the mosque voluntarily showed desire to save it and it was then that the Hindus reached out to the Muslim people and contributed resources for repairs. After being reopened in 2016, a year later, people acknowledged that this reconstruction effort has actually laid bricks for a stronger bond between both the communities. “One set of keys is with Poonam Parekh and Kaushik rami who sell flowers near the mosque,” Aziz Gandhi, a social worker in Dariapur told The Times Of India. In fact, Rami even lights incense sticks twice a day near the mosque. He further added, “We are happy that the mosque that was closed for over three decades is now filled with devotees.” © BCCL “With Haji Usmangani mansuri and other trustees of the mosque, we renovated the structure,” said Chandrakant Sharma, the priest of the Nagdalla Hanuman Temple. According to Sharma, earlier the Muslim youth had to go to other mosques to offer namaaz but now they won’t have to go out of their locality. Another resident of Dariapur, Hamidullah Shaikh, lauded the efforts of the Hindus and said “Our Hindu brothers helped us bring labourers to renovate the mosque.” We wish other people could have shared the similar bond and affection as them. But, now we can say that it’s not just the mosque that has reopened, it is their shared love and care that will stand strong as an example for many generations to come. Source: The Times Of India
