Muslim cleric Mufti Ejaz Arshad Qasmi was arrested Tuesday for repeatedly slapping lawyer Farah Faiz during a live TV debate regarding triple talaq, a banned practice in India that claims Muslim men can divorce their wives by saying, writing or texting “talaq” three times.
The altercation, which occurred during a live debate on Zee Hindustan, took place after Faiz told Qasmi that triple talaq is not recognized as a form of divorce in the Quran, Daily News and Analysis India reported. Within seconds, the two were on their feet, pointing fingers at one another and arguing the matter.

The Trudeau government is planning to introduce ‘alternative’ measures to reduce the number of individuals in detention centres.
As noted in a recent report, “Canada’s border agency is set to announce changes aimed at releasing more refugee claimants and other foreign nationals safely into the community while their immigration status is being resolved. An expanded framework for alternatives to detention will provide “risk-based, nationally consistent programming” for individuals deemed suitable for release, according to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). Agreements with third-party service providers, including the John Howard Society, have been signed to track people released to the community with conditions. Details of the changes are expected to be announced in coming days.”
Of course, “safely” is the word being used by the government, and considering the lack of border security we see now, there are reasons to doubt that claim.

The largest-ever report on the fundamentalist branch of Islam shows Salafist preachers in Sweden are cooperating to push their message across Muslim communities – and disturbing everyday behavior is now common even in children.
“Not all Salafists are jihadists, but all jihadists are Salafists,” says the 265-page study of a movement that advocates a return to ‘pure’ Islam, commissioned by the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency, a government department.
Swedish authorities declared last year that the number of militant Islamists in the country had risen from 200 to 2000 in a decade. Through 70 interviews with police, social workers and community representatives, the study attempted to understand how religious belief leads to terrorism. What it found was a well-organized ideology consciously pushing for the Muslim minority to divorce itself from the cultural surroundings of mainstream Sweden, creating a deep social rift from which terrorists and jihadist recruits can emerge.
