 WHOOPS '' '''

STUDENTS HONOUR DAY : OVER 15,000 CHILD WORKERS TOIL IN BALOCHISTAN : They are employed in construction, coal mines and automobile workshops. !Child labour is a violation of every child's right to a childhood !.

The Developing World must enforce child labour laws. Every single child in the world has a right to get an education and better health. '' Child protection officers turn a blind eye to children toiling in brick kilns, and auto workshops. ''

In Pakistan, going forward over 6 million children engaged in child labour. Peasant activists say over 700,000 children toiling as bonded labourers. It may be mentioned here that the Sindh government a few years ago had also passed, ''Sindh Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act''.

The law has described it a crime if parents don't send their child under the age of 16 to school and force him to work.

ACCORDING TO A RECENT SURVEY -  A STAGGERING 69% OF MUSLIMS currently employed in the UK deal with some form of Islamophobic  behaviour.

The 1,503 British Muslims that were interviewed stated that such behaviour was prevalent during work-related engagements including interactions with customers and other people [44%], at social events [42%], and when seeking promotions [40%].

It gets worse when the statistics indicate that 58% were black Muslims who claim to have experienced more intense reactions.

While the overall participants believe that Muslims today enjoy more acceptance in the UK in general, one cannot ignore that ingrained racism and religious bigotry have pervaded all levels of society after being systematically and institutionally normalised.

AND IN INDIA : The BJP government stoops to a new low, and sets about demolishing homes of Muslim protesters.

Authorities in India's Uttar Pradesh state have demolished the homes of several people over their participation in the protest last week triggered by anti-Islam remarks by ruiling party figures, officials said on Sunday.

In the Indian illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir [IIOJK], police arrested a student/youth for posting a video, threatening to behead the ruling party's former spokesperson who had made some of the remarks, officials said. The video, circulated on YouTube has been withdrawn by authorities.

Muslims have taken to the streets across India in recent weeks to protest against the anti-Islamic comments by two members of Prime Minister Narandra Modi's Hindu Nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party [BJP]

Clashes have broken out between Muslims and Hindus and in some cases between protesters and police in several areas. Police in Uttar Pradesh arrested more than 300 people in connection with the unrest.

Some in India's minority Muslims community see the comments as the latest instance of pressure and humiliation under the BJP rule on issues ranging from freedom of worship to the wearing of hijab head scarves.

The BJP has suspended its spokeswoman Nupur Sharma and expelled another leader, Naveen Kumar Jindal, for the comments, which have also caused a diplomatic row with several Muslim countries.

Police have filed cases against the two and the government has said the comments do not reflect its views. Muslim groups have demanded their arrest.

Over the weekend the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh state, Yogi Adityanath, ordered officials to demolish any illegal establishments and homes of people accused of involvement in riots there last week, the BJP's state spokesperson said.

The house of an ''alleged mastermind of the riots'', whose daughter is a female Muslim rights activist, was demolished amid a heavy police presence on Sunday. Properties of two more people accused of throwing stones after ''friday prayers'' were also demolished in the state.

Mrityunjay Kumar, Adityanath's media adviser tweeted a photo of a bulldozer demolishing a building and said ''Unruly elements remember, every Friday is followed by a Saturday.''

Opposition leaders said Adityanath's government was pursuing an unconstitutional method to silence protesters. On Sunday, Jindal said his family faced continuous threats and some of his followers said a crude bomb was defused near his residence in capital New Delhi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has so far not commented on the communal unrest. In the eastern state of West Bengal, authorities enforced an emergency law prohibiting public gatherings in the industrial district of Howrah until June June 16.

BJP's West Bengal president on Sunday staged a sit-in protest and accused neighbouring Bangladesh of inciting violence in the state.

Last week countries such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, Iran - which are key trade partners of India - lodged diplomatic protests to demand an apology from Modi's government for the comments.
