Hindu festival Navratri, sex and rise in condom sales

Navratri is an important nine day festival Hindu festival. Navratri is celebrated with Garba and Dandiya-Raas dance. Garba is celebrated whole night. During Garba night men and women mingle with each other and it is a fact that during Navratri month female pregnancy and sale of condoms and contraceptive pills are on a high. This is reported by media on almost every navratri.
For example:

Fest Boom: Surat condom sales soars during Navratris
The exuberance of Navratri and the unhindered gaiety and celebration during the festive season can sometimes evoke basic instincts among most young people.

After all, if one throws young, eligible, and brightly dressed young people together for nine continuous nights, there's bound to be a lot of love in the air.

And in many cities in Gujarat, like Surat, that love leads to a unique festival trend, something that could easily be considered the side-effect of festivities.

"Pregnancies and abortions are rising, that has been the observation by doctors and gynecologists over the last few years," says Surat-based sexologist Mukul Choksey.

Sexual activity, doctors say, is at its peak during this time.

“During the whole year it should be maximum during these days. Except 31st night, this is the only occasion when for total 10 days they have this freedom,” says Choksey.

In fact, conclusive evidence of this trend can be found at the various chemists shops in the city. Contraceptive sales keep their cash registers ringing.

“The sale of contraceptives goes up by 20 to 30 per cent. Condoms record the highest sale during Navratri season,” says a chemist Himanshu Yagnik.

So if there's festivity in the air, and romance on the mind, there’s only one caution: play it safe.

Hindus worried as twitter appoints Raheel Khursheed as new twitter India head

Raheel Khursheed, a former journalist and online activist’s new job as head of Twitter India’s news, politics and government division has not been welcomed by many.

Not surprising. The 30-year-old’s acerbic tweets on India’s political heavyweights, including Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi, and his Kashmiri identity have not earned him friends.

"Twitter has been successful in becoming global by being a neutral as well as open-ended platform of communication. I am afraid that this appointment will hamper that image in India," Arvind Gupta, head of information technology cell of the Bharatiya Janata Party told the tabloid, Mint.

On BJP Prime Ministerial candidate and Gujarat Chief Minister Modi, Khursheed had tweeted: 'Modi is 70% Fascist.19.9% Market Capitalist.10% Democratic.0.1% Secular'.

His tweets on Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi included a critique of his political career as hovering 'between the insipid and the uninspiring' and his recent Jaipur speech as 'laughable'.

Khursheed’s Twitter account has clocked 44,210 tweets and has 7,180 followers on the microblogging site where he’s been active since 2008.

A BJP support group has petitioned the online pressure group,, to remove him from his new role at Twitter India, with over 2,000 supporters asking for Khursheed’s removal.

The petition, addressed to the CEO and the Board of Twitter Inc, accuses Khursheed of "displaying sheer contempt and hate" for Modi.

Khursheed's new job description says he will 'lead strategies that scale up Twitter's reach and impact with news, government and political users'.

Twitter and Indian politics

Given the nature of the social microblogging site where support and shaming with little or no censorship is allowed, Khursheed's recent past as an active Twitterati has had him firing his guns at the Indian political establishment.

Indian politicians and movie stars have begun to use Twitter as a platform to speak up.

Most political leaders have taken to Twitter, including the Prime Minister’s Office, Modi and senior ranking Congress and AAP leaders.

Statistics in the Mint, based on the Internet and Mobile Association of India and IMRB (Indian Market Research Bureau) say Twitter has more than 20 million users in India.

Whether Khursheed’s new job role will affect and halt his earlier frank-speak through his tweets is to be seen.

Even as his appointment has made it to reports in the media and online webzines, and congratulatory messages flooding his Facebook page, Khursheed has chosen to keep mum.

When contacted by Al Jazeera, Khursheed responded, "I have no comments to make."

India, China may step towards Islamic finance

 India and China may step towards the Islamic finance in 2014 where more than 200 million Muslim populations are in compatible search of a financial system with their religious beliefs and thoughts. There is no doubt that international financial crisis will not hit the Islamic finance industry but due to the Arab Spring, Islamic finance industry has faced recession in some countries of MENA but there are chances of revival in 2014.

These views were expressed by Islamic Finance expert, Zubair Mughal who is also CEO of Al Huda Centre of Islamic Banking and Economics (CIBE) while commenting on Islamic finance industry in 2014. According to him, Islamic finance will grow with rapid pace in the year 2014 and its volume will pass through $ 2 trillion where Islamic banking keeps 78%, Sukuk 16%, Takaful 1%, Islamic Funds 4% and Islamic Microfinance has 1% share in the Islamic Finance industry.

In the year 2014, Dubai and London will be in competition to be the global hub of Islamic Banking and Finance while Kuala Lumpur will also attempt to be in this contest but the Islamic finance industry can be grown more through synergizing approach and alliance with industry stakeholders rather than setting any competition.

He said that the Islamic finance industry growth will go on double digit in 2014 which will turn the $ 1.6 trillion volume of Islamic finance industry in December 2013 to US $ 2 trillion by the end of 2014 including North African countries (Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, Senegal and Mauritania etc), rising trends of Islamic finance in Europe and UK, also the rising and substantial share of international market of Sukuk shall contribute to it.

He said that Sukuk will grow rapidly in 2014 and Muslim countries including non-Muslim countries e.g UK, China, South Africa and Europe etc will also get benefit from it which will enhance the growth in Islamic finance industry but Takaful Industry is not supposed to have any substantial breakthrough.

It is being hoped that 2014 will prove better period for Islamic Microfinance industry as different international institutions including Islamic Development Bank (IDB) have declared it a potential tool for poverty alleviation around the globe.

He also added that Islamic finance industry may face recession in certain countries including Indonesia while in Nigeria and Tunisia it may face some problems on religious and political grounds. He said that the Islamic finance initiatives in America and Canada including Latin American countries (Brazil, Argentina and others) have been taken and it is hoped that Islamic Funds market will come into existence in these regions by the year 2014.

To a question, Zubair Mughal said that there are multiple opportunities in Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries to promote Islamic Finance, through which Halal Industry can be flourished rapidly in the region.

He stated that Islamic Finance and Halal Industry are complement to each other. Micro and Small Medium Enterprises (MSME’s) can be energized by utilizing Islamic Finance concept in the region which will be cause to reduce in poverty and ultimate socio-economic prosperity in the ASEAN member Countries. Presenting an analysis on ASEAN countries including Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei Darussalam, Loa PDR, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, he stated that the approximate total population of ASEAN countries is 600 million including the Muslim Population more than 40% (240 million) which is a potential indicator for Islamic Finance growth whereas in Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam already have significant contributions in Islamic Banking, Takaful, Sukuk and Islamic Funds, while Philippines and Thailand are being considered as future potential markets for Islamic Banking and Finance in ASEAN countries.

He explained that Islamic Banking and Finance is the system not a religion which can be utilized by Muslim and Non-Muslims to get absolute benefits from the best services of Islamic Banking and Finance as its best example is the South Africa where Muslim population is less than 2% of the whole population but it has more than 5 Islamic Banks, 13 Islamic Funds and 2 Takaful companies working actively, which are equally famous among Muslims even non-Muslims communities because of their best practices and services.

He said that Philippines is an important country of the region with having 100 million populations, approximately, containing Muslim population by more than 7% which bears it out that there are momentous chances for the promotion of Islamic Finance and, apparently, government of Philippines found active in this concern and it will, definitely, energize Islamic Banking and Takaful in result.

All India Muslim Law Board welcomes SC verdict on gays

Lucknow/New Delhi: All India Muslim Law Board member Zafaryab Jilani on Wednesday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict on gay sex.

"The Supreme Court has given this verdict to maintain the culture of this country. I don't know the exact text of the judgement though," said Jilani.

"We cannot make law on the basis of some people. It is not only against Muslims community, but also Hindus and Christians. It was an offence and therefore it should continue to be an offence. It is a welcome judgment," he added.

In a major setback for the largely closeted homosexual community in India, the apex court today said gay sex between consenting adults is a criminal offence.

The apex court set aside the Delhi High Court's 2009 judgement that homosexuality should not be treated as a criminal offence, which had been challenged by anti-gay rights activists, social and religious organisations.

The apex court had reserved its order in March last year, after day-to-day hearing in the case lasted an entire month.

The Delhi High Court had in 2009 decriminalised gay sex as provided in Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and had ruled that sex between two consenting adults in private would not be an offence.

Section 377 (unnatural offences) of the IPC makes gay sex a criminal offence entailing punishment up to life term. Senior BJP leader BP Singhal has challenged the high court verdict in the Supreme Court, saying such acts are illegal, immoral and against the ethos of Indian culture.

Religious organisations like All India Muslim Personal Law Board, Utkal Christian Council and Apostolic Churches Alliance too have challenged the judgement.

Hindu terrorists attack Aam Aadmi Party's office

 Aam Aadmi Party's office in Kaushambi attacked by workers of the 'Hindu Raksha Dal'. A group of 30 to 40 people attacked the party office in Kaushambi.
Armed miscreants carrying bricks and lathis ransacked AAP's office in Kaushambi in Ghaziabad and tried to attack party volunteers on Wednesday.

Carrying the banner of an outfit called Hindu Raksha Dal, around 35 people reached the party's office around 11.05 am raising slogans against party leader Prashant Bhushan for seeking a referendum on the army's presence in Kashmir during an interview with Aaj Tak on Sunday.

Bhushan's comment had drawn ire of several right wing outfits, including the Bharatiya Janata Party.

The attackers even tried to break open a door in the party office when the volunteers locked themselves inside a room to doge them. The miscreants ransacked the ground floor and left.

"We managed to take away the volunteers. No one was injured. Only office property has been damaged," said an AAP leader who was present in the office during the attack.

He said the attackers were carrying the banner of Hindu Raksha Dal.

"We have video footage of the attackers. AAP seeks immediate action against them," the leader said.

The attackers carried flags, banners, lathis and began hurling bricks and abuses at the AAP volunteers, many of them women.

"Had I been a second late, I would have been hurt. They had come to fight," said a woman volunteer of the AAP.

"Had we not locked the gate on time, many women would have been hurt since the attackers were throwing bricks," said another volunteer.

Police have reached the spot.

"The party never endorsed Bhushan's comments. Despite that, goons were sent to attack the AAP office. One party has been encouraging these groups. These are all inspired by the BJP. It is if they are the custodians of Hinduism. This is fake nationalism," said AAP leader Kumar Vishwas.
