Everyone in Azerbaijan knows that she is in prison because of her journalistic work and her human rights activism.”Azerbaijan’s leading investigative reporter, Ismayilova covered corruption at the highest level. The authorities finally arrested her in December 2014 after their many attempts to intimidate her into silence failed.After suppressing all media pluralism, the Aliyev government has been orchestrating an unprecedented crackdown on its remaining critics for the past two years. Eleven other journalists and bloggers are currently detained in connection with their reporting. They include Rauf Mirkadyrov, whose trial began behind closed doors on 4 November, a year and a half after his arrest. The next hearing in his trial is scheduled for 2 December.Azerbaijan is ranked 162nd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Photo : Azadliq Radiosu (RFE/RL) Help by sharing this information April 9, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

A later response outlined that the actual budget for 2018 would be €122 million, over €13 million less in funding.“It appears that funding for apprenticeships has become a casualty of Fine Gael’s €335 million tax giveaway budget, and I have no doubt the targets will be missed again this year as a result.“Evidence of this can already be seen in the fact that, despite being 5 months into 2018, only 3% of the government’s target of new registrations for this year, have been achieved to date.“The need for more apprenticeship places and alternative programmes is clear. We need to increase this method of training and education, not just to give young people more tertiary education options, but also to equip Ireland with the skilled workers needed for growing and emerging industries.​”​We have to establish apprenticeships as a real alternative career choice for people, we need to champion this method of education and training.” Deputy Quinlivan concluded.More about politics here. center_img Maurice Quinlivan appointed Chair of Enterprise, Trade and Employment Committee Facebook Sinn Fein plans for ‘all female’ election candidates are sexist and discriminatory, says male party member snubbed for election run RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick Senator has beef with meat industry Advertisement Fianna Fáil TD Niall Collins appointed as Minister of State Pension issue is hot election topiclast_img read more

Besides, “it is contrary to the laws prevailing in the territorial Jurisdiction of India, calling for invocation of Penal Laws for manifestly insulting the religion, hurting the feelings of the community and disturbing the communal harmony of the Country”. The Petitioner, an advocate practicing at the Telangana High Court, submits that a Religious Congregation was conducted from 13th March 2020 to 15th March 2020 at Delhi, organised by the Tablighi Jamat at Nizamuddin, Delhi where Scholars and attendees had arrived from across the World and from different states of India and the Organisers had housed them by providing necessary day to day facilities. He continues that after the conclusion of the meeting somewhere around March 20, there a was massive spread of Coronavirus causing the Government of India to declare March 22 as “Janata Curfew”, which means that the entire Country on that particular date was closed fully. Thereafter, lockdown was announced from March 24 to April14. It is narrated that “after the attendees dispersed to their respective States, and during or after arriving at their respective places, there were some instances of detection of Coronavirus symptoms. The participants who had come from abroad and were staying at Nizamuddin, Delhi tested positive and the ‘State’ took them for Quarantine as per the norms”. “Due to massive publicity given by the media that many of the positive cases of Coronavirus were found from Tablighi Jamaat at Nizamuddin, Delhi, there was massive trending on Twitter attaching the religion to the disease of coronavirus”, the petitions reads. “The attaching of the particular community to Coronavirus is totally contrary to the Guidelines issued by the WHO on 18.03.2020” laying down that “religion shall not be attached with the pandemic”, the petitioner iterates. He has urged that, “to uphold the Rule of Law”, action be taken against these social media trends “by blocking the unwarranted tweets or usages which is affecting the particular community”. The petitioner has prayed for a direction to the Centre and to the Telangana police to require the social media platform Twitter to “stop the illegal trending attaching the religion to the pandemic disease”, for it is “highly unwarranted,, illegal and unconstitutional”. Further, it is sought that “online social media networks or sites be restrained from carrying any messages hurting or insulting the feelings of the particular community” A plea seeking action against certain sections of the media for communalising the meeting at Nizamuddin has already been filed before the apex court by another organisation of Islamic scholars- Jamait Ulama-i-hind and Supreme Court has directed to implede Press Council Of India in the matter.Next Storylast_img read more
