Another common feature is the increasing demand in both countries for online voting. as of now, suffocating society.I am proud that the film represents women from different communities Because patriarchy is common to women across the world I don’t believe that women in India should be marginalized or left out of cultural representations because that creates an “otherness” I believe that as women there is something deep within that connects us Also with the new conversation about diversity in Hollywood I think it is quite progressive to have films that are more representative I think there is so much beauty in the diversity of India That is what makes us unique Why should reflecting that diversity in a film be problematic rather than progressive Why do you feel people don’t come out in open to speak on such topics It is easier to perpetuate the status quo for some I guess Maybe the fear of challenging the dominant and prevailing viewpoint is not everybody’s cross to bear Sometimes things have to happen to you personally for you to speak out But having said that I am so encouraged by the support of people across the world and the media What is your take on censorship I think the concept of censorship is not in tandem with the concept of democracy and the freedom of expression A country that lets adults vote and elect their leaders must let its adult citizens choose the films they want to watch Particularly in 2017 with the digital age the concept of censorship makes no sense And as is proven through what happened with Lipstick Under my Burkha the CBFC is completely ill-equipped to judge a film They have no idea as to how to look at a film in context of world cinema gender politics what is going in society the politics of representation alternative forms of narrative the politics of the gaze Right now their only point of reference seems to be the popular male dominated mainstream narrative of popular culture They are frightened by alternative view points like the female point of view They are then systematically perpetuating only the dominant narrative and consciously silencing women’s voices With flaming gender equality issues in India ranging from violence to dowry we need a gender-sensitive CBFC for sure There cannot be a government body that is sitting and trying to clamp down the voices and stories of women It cannot be allowed It is wrong And an assault on the rights of women to express themselves The way the CBFC exists right now acting as the uneducated regressive moral guardians of the Indian audience is a shame Censorship needs to be replaced by just certification But the CBFC as it functions right now is hardly equipped even to certify films A message for your audience I would love for people to just experience the lives of these four women for that couple of hours – laugh with them feel their heartbreak root for them just be with them How do you plan to release the movie We are going to fight the refusal to certify For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Top News UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – Iraq told the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday that Islamic State militants have committed genocide "These terrorist groups have desecrated all human values They have committed the most heinous criminal terrorist acts against the Iraqi people whether Shi’ite Sunni Christians Turkmen Shabak or Yazidis" Iraq’s UN Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim said "These are in fact crimes of genocide committed against humanity that must be held accountable before international justice" he told the UN Security Council Alhakim did not give further details of the crimes The country’s Shi’ite-led government backed by US-led air strikes has been trying to push back Islamic State since it swept through mainly Sunni Muslim provinces of northern Iraq in June At the time the militants met virtually no resistance AlhakimsaidIraq needed more help to liberate all areas under Islamic State control UN Assistant Secretary-General for human rights Ivan Simonovic said in October that the campaign of Islamic State militants against Iraq’s Yazidi minority may be attempted genocide UN envoy to Iraq Nikolay Mladenov said he was gravely concerned about the safety of Iraq’s diverse ethnic and religious communities in areas under Islamic State control particularly thousands of women and children still in captivity "Almost daily terrorist attacks continue to deliberately target all Iraqis most notably the Shi’ite community as well as ethnic and religious minorities across the country" he told the Security Council "Equally worrying is the increasing number of reports of revenge attacks committed particularly against members of the Sunni community in areas liberated from (Islamic State) control" he said Mladenov urged the Iraqi government to quickly provide military and financial help it had pledged to local leaders and tribal fighters to take on Islamic State but

think.They have been tasked to collect samples from street vendors to check for beef according to a report inThe Times of India File image of Haryana police Reuters The move comes just a few days before Eid-al-Adha which is on 11 September according to Mid-day The report further said that the Gau Sewa Ayog issued the diktat and has offered numerous justifications as to why only biryani is being targeted The decision was taken during a meeting chaired by Niti Aayog’s chairman Bhani Ram Mangla in Mewat on Tuesday The Indian Express quoted him as saying “We have decided to obtain samples of biryani sold in Mewat and Nuh since the commission had been receiving several complaints in this regard As per the standard procedure the samples have been sent to the laboratory for testing If beef is found in the samples action shall be taken” Meanwhile Zee News quoted CPTF’s nodal officer Bharti Arora as saying that there were complaints of cow smuggling and slaughtering from various areas in Mewat She also met locals in Mewat to discuss the issue She added that after Mewat sampling will be done in other districts as well According to The Times of India Mangla believes that selling beef openly is difficult and according to complaints received by them the vendors are mixing a little rice with the meat to camouflage it The police has been told to book vendors immediately and Mangla said that they have asked the food and drug administration to ensure early reports of tests” Senior Congress leader from Mewat Aftab Ahmed has called this an attempt by the BJP government to humiliate the particular community and district By Vivek Bhardwaj On the eve of his 30th day in power Prime Minister Narendra Modi lamented he was not allowed the luxury of a honeymoon period But results of the exit polls for Maharashtra and Haryana show this is not true: voters are willing to give Modi some more time to settle down despite what has been a rocky start On the domestic front inflation could be down on paper but prices in the market are still sky-high; there is no sign of a big boom in the economy and jobs are still difficult to find The roar of guns on the India- Pakistan border has become louder and China continues to make incursions into our territory The results of Modi’s visits to Japan and the US will take some time to become visible Reuters Yet Modi’s popularity is soaring and state after state is falling in his basket There could be just one explanation: people are convinced that he will ultimately deliver Faith in his promises is still intact People continue to hope that achche din will be here soon They are not in the mood to judge his performance or listen to his critics yet Popularity aside the second important takeaway is that people now want the Prime Minister to also be their chief minister — or rather they believe he can make a difference in leadership at the state level if his party is in power Both in Haryana and Maharashtra voters did not bother to find out who the BJP would anoint as the CM after winning the polls They supported the BJP out of conviction that Modi will personally monitor the state government regardless of who he chooses as his local lieutenant Now Modi will have to deliver on that belief For the Congress this is yet another reminder that it is on the verge of demise After the drubbing in the Lok Sabha elections the party had slipped into coma Its strategy during the Maharashtra/Haryana elections appeared to be of just waiting and watching with the hope of a miracle But the Congress is now beyond miracles and only a complete overhaul in its leadership style of working and policies can instill hope in its cadres that the party will not become extinct before 2019 Here is a prediction: the status quo within the Congress will not continue for long There would either be some loud voices from within for a new leader or some important leaders would start looking for options outside the Congress For the others the exit polls strongly suggest that perhaps Lalu Prasad Yadav and Nitish Kumar may indeed have it right Modi has become the fulcrum of Indian politics now The next few elections in India will be a contest between his followers and critics Unless the anti-Modi votes consolidate there is very little chance of the BJP losing in the near future This realization will lead to realignment of forces in Indian politics Many sworn enemies will have no option to bury the past and unite to take on the common foe It would be interesting to see how Mamata Banerjee the Left and the Congress come to terms with a rising BJP in West Bengal And whether Mayawati and Mulayam Singh also accept the inevitable in Uttar Pradesh After all come Sunday the Shiv Sena too may be wondering if the results could have been different in Maharashtra had there been a Mahayuti against the BJP concurs and adds: “All this is happening because the ruling party workers and lower-middle bureaucracy
