Al-Qaeda is still working with Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Haqqani network

Al Qaeda remains “flexible” and continues to work closely with Pakistan-based terrorist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Haqqani network, but how the health and leadership of its leader Iman Mohammed al-Zawahiri coexist, according to a UN report.

This was reflected in the twenty-fourth report of the Analytical Support and Boundary Monitoring Team, submitted to the UN Security Council’s UN Security Council Ban Committee this month.

The Monitoring Team shall submit an independent report every six months to the Security Council on the organization of the Islamic State, Al-Qaida, its affiliated individuals, groups, institutions and institutions.

Al Qaeda is flexible, although its leader, Iman Mohammed Rabih al-Zawahiri, longevity, how will the caliphate work, is in doubt.

Al Qaeda is a safe haven for Afghanistan’s leadership, which relies heavily on the strong and strong relationship with the Taliban for a long time.

Under the protection of the Taliban, al-Qaeda is keen to strengthen its presence in Badakhshan province, particularly in the Shijan area on the Tajik border, as well as in Paralim, Paktika province.

The report said al-Qaeda continued to work closely with Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Haqqani network. The report said al-Qaeda members continue to work regularly as Taliban military and religious instructors.

He also mentioned that the Islamic State of Iraq and the ISL are moving towards the network of communication and speech in their remote governorates, which are spreading, the logical extension of the representative leadership approach.

Established affiliates take elements of responsibility for fewer people, deploy funds and help promote.

It has been said in the report that over time, the impact of these communication agencies may have an impact.

This has already been done in the al-Qaeda case, which has incorporated itself into local issues and politics for a long time, which has given some success to the group but there are some problems as was said in Idlib.

In addition, al-Qaeda-allied groups are stronger than Idlib, the Syrian Arab Republic, Yemen, Somalia and West Africa, compared to their counterparts.

The largest gathering of active foreign fighters is Idlib and Afghanistan, most of them allied to al Qaeda.

However, the report said that the organization of the Islamic state is very strong with al-Qaeda in terms of funding, media profile, current war experience and terrorist experience, and is at great risk to global security.

He also stressed that local authorities have limited capacity to meet the terrorist challenges in Afghanistan, Libya and Somalia.

In reference to the Sunday Easter attacks in Sri Lanka that killed 258 people, the report said that despite the ISIL declaration of responsibility, the investigation revealed that the ISIL Corps did not direct or facilitate the attacks was not known about them. . ”

Said that it had been provoked by an area inspired by an ideology that had been advocated and attacked in the leadership.

The purpose of the bomb explosion was to strengthen the image of the global evangelist after its military defeat in Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic.

Regional Member States have expressed concern about mobility in this area, particularly in Sri Lanka, South India and the Maldives, which can contribute to internal threats.

Since 2013, some 170 Maldives have traveled to Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic, and more than 70 failed attempts to travel.

It has been said in the report that, as its growth from the pseudo-state to the global network continues to inspire terrorism, its goal may be to establish a platform for operations in those areas where it has never been active. .

Sunday’s Sunday attacks could be tantamount to future bombings of intimidating terror in other unexpected locations.

Iraq and the Syrian Arab Republic could be repatriated to foreign countries in their countries with indigenous fundamentalists in South Asia or elsewhere.

The attacks of the Lana “advocate reinforces the continued appeal of propaganda and original cells in unpredictable places and can create an important terrorist capability.”

These sites and other websites are attacking attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand in March. It has been said that providing an alarming novel to increase interstate conflict.

It has also been said in the report that outside the core conflict zone, Zahed and al Qaeda are struggling for international hegemony and importance.

Some Member States have described the existence of many local conflict zones, each with its own gravity, which attracts foreign terrorist fighters, who come either from the region or have ethnic or linguistic ties.

Afghanistan is the most established, and there are concerns about the small and long-term threats caused by the preacher, coalition groups and foreign fighters who have established themselves.

The Himalayas demand a “green reward” at a Mussoorie conference

The Himalayas demand a green reward at a Mussoorie conference

The Himalayas met at a conference in Mussoorie on Sunday to demand a separate central ministry to recognize their contribution to the preservation of the environment and the elimination of their problems.

This was the first time that the Himalayan kingdom had come to the same platform to adopt a unified stand on these issues.

Both requirements formed part of the common agenda of the Himalayan states, and a proposal was made to this effect by the Minister of Finance of the Union, Nirmala Sittraman, at the end of the Conference, which opened the Himalayan Conference for one day.

The Indian Himalayan region (IHR) is spread across 12 states, including Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, West Bengal Hills, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir.

Green Rewards

During the explanation of the green demand, most of the country’s rivers are produced in the Himalayas, and therefore the states should play the most important role in the prime minister’s water conservation initiative, Prime Minister Otaranchal Trevindra Singh Rawat said.

Roat said the state was in an unfavorable situation because large land fell in the environmentally sensitive area, where there were no development activities.

As the 2013 Planning Committee report says, the benefits of this green cover are not limited to these areas, but “are shared with the country on a large scale.”

The Himalayan states argued that, given the central assistance in states with large forests, it is not appropriate to apply the same measure. Therefore, according to them, they should be given any kind of compensation “green reward”.

In the report of the Planning Committee, states were said to have argued that they provided “public goods” with the burden of protecting forests and water resources in forests and water resources, compared to other states.

Countries most sensitive to climate change

In a report to IndiaSpend, a study reported that Asam, Mizuram, Jammu and Kashmir among India’s 12 Himalayas are the most sensitive to climate change.

Accordingly, increased vulnerability leaves these areas with the ability to anticipate, resist, deal with, or recover from the effects of threats or climate change.

About 50 million Indians live in the International Health Regulations, according to the IndiaSpend report.

In these areas, glaciers account for up to 70 percent of agriculture. The report further stated that because of the changes in Himalayan landscapes and weather, climate change is affected and, in the winter, the livelihoods and survival of these communities are threatened.

A study by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mandi and Guwahati and the Indian Institute of Sciences (Bengali) in Bengal called Climate Vulnerability Assessment for the Indian Himalayan Cause of a Common Framework.

“Most of the country’s rivers are born in the Himalayas, so the Himalayas have the most important role to play in the prime minister’s initiative to conserve water,” explained Rawat, who explains why green gains are needed.

It was also necessary because the contribution of the Himalayan states to environmental protection was the largest in terms of green cover.

The Himalayan kingdom was also affected by the fall of large-scale lands in the environment-sensitive zone, where all development activities could not be undertaken. Rohat said the Himalayas needed a green reward to compensate for their losses.

After nearly six hours of deliberation, in addition to their own contribution to the nation’s prosperity, a collective decision to preserve and preserve its rich cultural heritage, biodiversity, glaciers, rivers and lakes as a “Musurite decision” has passed.

Earlier, Conclave spoke as the main guest, said Cétraman that this conference was very long because it had to play an important role in the development of the Himalayas, which is one of the priorities of the Center.

He said special efforts would be made to stop the escalation of border areas and Panchayati Raj institutions could play a bigger role in achieving this goal.

The EU Finance Minister, who described people living in remote border areas as important to the country’s security, said that to prevent hillside migration, they had to provide basic amenities.

He stressed the importance of protecting the environment, and said the hill countries should focus on organic farming and link local youth to activity. “Start-up companies can also be very important for young people living in mountainous areas.

The UAPA amendment bill should be seen as part of the story of the remaining Indian Legion in Parliament

The UAPA amendment bill should be seen as part of the story of the remaining Indian Legion in Parliament

As an extra week of the monsoon session approaches parliament, this is a good time to tackle one of the most controversial laws approved by Lok Sabha.

The draft law under consideration is the Bill on the Amendment of Unlawful Activities (Prevention), 2019, which makes significant changes to its original law, the Prevention of Illegal Activities Act, 1967.

Here are the relevant questions to ask – what are these changes and what are the concerns raised by these amendments?

Stable law to change times

The beginning of the 1967 law dates back to the recommendation of the National and Regional Integration Committee formed under the auspices of the National Integration Council.

This law was also the result of the sixteenth constitutional amendment, which imposed an appropriate prohibition on the right to form an independent speech, expression and association under article 19 of the Constitution.

The aim of the National Integration Council was to ensure and promote the principle of river unity in diversity, while in the first decades of independence, attention was paid to secessionist demands.

However, since its inception, legislation has been quickly played out and disassociated with definitions of key words such as terrorist and illegal activities among others.

These are aspects that have developed UPA as a reputation for separating political opponents and the spy tool of various political ideologies.

This is a tradition that continues with a set of modifications now.

Modify

The practice of naming people as terrorists and seizing property is partly due to the fact that terrorist organizations often change their name and are thus able to remove the authorities.

Many countries around the world have joined as part of their anti-terrorism laws. The problem is that there is currently no specific procedure for classifying a person as a terrorist and only one of them is convicted after being convicted by the court.

Since UAPA is not special to conduct a thorough judicial inquiry, this is a viable claim to invalidate this provision due to the significant impact on the right to freedom of life and liberty.

In 1952, the Supreme Court (Madras State vs. VG Row) violated the provisions of the Pre-Independence Act because it violated the Constitution by failing to submit a full judicial investigation into the government’s decision to ban unions.

With regard to the secondary issue of delegation authority to lower-level officers of the National Investigation Agency, the Minister of the Interior says that it is based on realism and utilitarianism.

However, in order to combat this allegation, the current law already allows police officers to choose an appropriate estimate of why they want to prosecute them for when and for what reason.

Apart from this, the accused can be held for six months before the case is brought against them. To keep human rights concerns aside, in the current process, any kind of delay can be questioned.

In view of the bill, which relies on many types of international charters, it is impatiently missing any section that would guarantee the free and fair hearing of a terrorist organization accused and / or Article 10 of the Universal Declaration and will be said 14 separately.

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, respectively. Under this law, the severity of the provisions must be weighed against the international agreement signed by India and ratified to preserve the rule of law.

Union Minister of the Interior Amit Shah did not underestimate the claim that these amendments would be used as a tool for hunting political magic by calling for a clear call against the urban Maoists.

One word creates a sharp debate for the better part of the past two years and has arrested the allegations against activists such as Aaron Faria, Sudha Bhardhawaj.

Instead of looking at this piece of modification, it is important to consider it as part of the story of developing India as a developing country with a strong surveillance network.

Recently, the Ministry of Public Health announced a plan to deploy facial recognition technology as part of the CCRNS network.

With the above amendment, this decision also considers the pattern of decisions in which programs and laws are launched, with little consideration for possible human rights violations.

While the legal system, which acts as a strong and effective preventive control network, is a prerequisite for any modern nation-state.

However, this problem lies in the need to do so through the fixed process and security measures, as it has been developed in a set of Supreme Court decisions.
