Cleric expelled for threat to Bodos

The leading Muslim leaders of southern Assam has taken serious note of an inflammatory appeal and quit notice issued to Bodos living in Barrak Valley by All-Assam Imam Parishad (AAIP) and Muslim Youth Students Association.
The AAIP executive body, which came to know about the threat, in an emergency meeting on Sunday expelled its president Abdul Basit who issued the “ultimatum” to the Bodos living in Barak Valley districts to “leave the valley within August 25 or face consequences”.
AAIP Karimganj district committee president Moulana Abdul Warish said that the ultimatum issued by the working president of the organisation Abdul Basit against the Bodos was not that of AAIP. The issue was never discussed in the executive committee of AAIP and no one authorised the functionary to talk to the media on the subject. Therefore, Mr Basit has been expelled from the organisation, he said. An FIR has also been registered against Mr Basit.

Trains to n-E run full capacity from hyderabadage Correspondent
Hyderabad, Aug. 19

Despite assurances of safety from ministers the north-eastern community is not taking any chances and still continue to leave the city. All Northeast bound trains were running to full capacity. Some, however, prefer to say they are going home for vacations.
On Sunday, most trains such as Konark Express, Howrah Express and other trains going to Orissa were packed with people going to the Northeast. Most of the passengers belonged to the service sector in the city employed as security guards or office boys at various firms. Although it is obvious that they were fleeing the city out of security concerns, a passenger on condition of anonymity said, “It is festival time for us. I had booked my ticket well in advance. We earn our bread and butter here in the city and cannot leave everything behind and just flee.”
Meanwhile, city police commissioner yet again reiterated that they are prepared with all security measures in the city and there was no reason for panic. “We are ready with our security measures
in the city. We are following the routine security beef up like we do every year during Ramzan festivities,” said the commissioner.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
