seized it in May after government troops fled in a defeat which prompted Washington to take a hard look at strategy in its ongoing air war against the militants (Source: AP photo) Related News Iraq’s army declared victory over Islamic State fighters in a provincial capital west of Baghdad on Sunday the first major triumph for the US-trained force since it collapsed in the face of an assault by the militants 18 months ago The capture of Ramadi capital of mainly Sunni-Muslim Anbar province in the Euphrates River valley west of the capital deprives Islamic State militants of their biggest prize of 2015 The fighters seized it in May after government troops fled in a defeat which prompted Washington to take a hard look at strategy in its ongoing air war against the militants After encircling the city for weeks the Iraqi military launched a campaign to retake it last week and made a final push to seize the central administration complex on Sunday “By controlling the complex this means that we have defeated them in Ramadi” said Sabah al-Numani a spokesman for the force leading the fight on the government side “The next step is to clear pockets that could exist here or there in the city” State television broadcast footage of troops Humvee vehicles and tanks advancing through Ramadi streets amid piles of rubble and collapsed houses Some districts appeared to have been completely destroyed by the advance A US defense official speaking on condition of anonymity said the US-led campaign against Islamic State was unable to confirm at this point whether the militants had been cleared out of the the government complex Television also showed nighttime celebrations in mainly Shi’ite cities south of Baghdad for the victory in Anbar with people dancing in the streets and waving Iraqi flags from cars Officials did not give any immediate death tolls for the battle The government says most civilians were able to evacuate before it launched its assault Anbar provincial council member Falih al-Essawi called on the government to restore services to Ramadi quickly and start rebuilding the city to allow the return of the displaced “It will not be easy to convince families to return to a city that lacks basic human needs” he told Reuters Islamic State also known by the acronyms ISIS ISIL or Daesh swept through a third of Iraq in June 2014 and declared a “caliphate” to rule over all Muslims from territory in both Iraq and Syria carrying out mass killings and imposing a draconian form of Islam Its rise was aided by the swift collapse of the Iraqi army which abandoned city after city leaving fleets of armoured vehicles and other American weapons in the fighters’ hands Since then the battle against the group in both countries has drawn in most global and regional powers often with competing allies on the ground in complex multi-sided civil wars A US-led coalition is waging an air campaign against Islamic State but rebuilding the Iraqi army to the point that it could recapture and hold territory has been one of the biggest challenges In previous battles including the recapture of former dictator Saddam Hussein’s home city Tirkit in April the Iraqi government relied on Iran-backed Shi’ite militias for ground fighting with its own army mainly in a supporting role Complete control Ramadi was the first major city recaptured by the army itself without relying on the militias who were kept off the battlefield to avoid sectarian tension with the mainly Sunni population The government led by a Shi’ite Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Ramadi would be handed over to local police and a Sunni tribal force once it was secured a measure meant to win over the community to the fight against Islamic State “We have trained hundreds of tribal fighters their role will be holding the ground” said Brigadier-General Yahya Rasool spokesman for the joint operations command “Seeing their own tribes responsible for security will be a relief for the civilians” and will help convince those who have been displaced to return to the city he added The strategy echoes the “surge” campaign fought by US forces in 2006-2007 against a precursor of Islamic State when Washington also relied on winning over local Sunni tribes and arming them to fight militants Anbar province including Ramadi was one of the main battlefields during that campaign at the height of the 2003-2011 US Iraq war The government said the next target after Ramadi will be the northern city of Mosul by far the largest population centre controlled by Islamic State in either Iraq or Syria “The smooth victory in Ramadi should be happy news for the residents of Mosul” spokesman Numani said US officials had hoped Baghdad would launch an assault on Mosul during 2015 but this was put off after the fighters swept into Ramadi in May Dislodging the militants from Mosul which had a pre-war population close to 2 million would effectively abolish their state structure in Iraq and deprive them of

year the China Daily reported on Monday as smog blanketed the capital Beijing and the surrounding region Top officials from seven districts in Beijing Tianjin and cities in Hebei and Shanxi provinces were scolded at the weekend by the environmental watchdog for lax control of pollution this year the paper said The officials promised to submit plans to the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP) to resolve the problem within 20 days it said In the first quarter air quality deteriorated in the districts and cities according to the ministry The news came as toxic smog blanketed the capital and surrounding cities on Monday forcing some to issue an orange alert the second-highest level after red as pollution reached hazardous levels On Saturday Hebei the northern province home to six of China’s 10 smoggiest cities in the first two months of 2017 said it would take more action to shut “backward” coal-fired power plants promote new energy vehicles and shift industries The province is on the frontline of a three-year “war on pollution” and has already promised to slash coal consumption and close inefficient industrial plants The ministry’s weekend warning followed a month-long

India in Adelaide, "I have seen Shazia Ilmi’s video clip, with the thrilling sound of our first hydrogen bomb explosion, I am not hankering after any post but will not shy away from responsibility either.But the face will be from Shiv Sena only" Uddhav Thackeray had said in an interview on Saturday However BJP’s Rajiv Pratap Rudy said that the talks on who should be Chief Minister should be held only after the elections are over and is expected to personally say something along those linesto Thackeray when he sits down with him in Mumbai The two parties have been battling over seat sharing in the state with the BJP for the first time ever seeking to contest the same number of seats as the Sena As per the calculation the BJP and Shiv Sena will contest 135 seats while the four other smaller parties that form the ‘Mahayuti’ alliance will contest the other 18 seats The Sena has stuck to its guns on holding 150 seats which as a senior party leader pointed out to the Indian Express was still 19 seats less than what it contested in the 2009 elections Another formula that was reportedly suggested was that the BJP would fight 126 seats Shiv Sena would contest 144 and the smaller allies wouldget 18 seats which again was unacceptable to the regional party An editorial in Shiv Sena mouthpieceSaamna which threatened that "excessive lust leads to divorce" didn’t help matters at all Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut who attempted to bat for Uddhav was also smacked down with the BJP’s spokesperson dismissing his views saying that he was not a top leader of the party Another BJP leader also jokingly told the Express that "impotence was also a cause for divorce" hinting at the Sena’s flagging electoral performance However what the BJP has going for it is the fact that it won 23 of the 48 seats in Maharashtra while the Shiv Sena managed only 18 and the Modi factor which could play a role in the upcoming state elections as well A flagging Shiv Sena was revived by what was ostensibly a wave of support for the BJP and Modi in the Lok Sabha elections and have stayed on as alliance partners despite the BJP’s not-so-hidden overtures to rival faction the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena in the past As Firspost’s Vishwas Waghmode reports despite all the bluster the alliance isn’t likely to let go of what could be their best chance to come to power in the state after 15 years The Shiv Sena may have little choice but to yield to its resurgent ally but retain a tiny majority in the seat sharing formula While the Shiv Sena may hold out for the Chief Minister’s chair in the event that it does come to power it will find it difficult to find a popular face from within who doesn’t have Thackeray as a surname or is acceptable to the BJP New Delhi: The Income Tax department on Tuesday issued a notice to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) asking why it should not be prosecuted for alleged falsification of account books and "wilful attempt" to evade tax on donations received by it The department has issued the show cause notice to the party’s convener — Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal — and three others and has sought the party’s reply in this regard by first half of this month Representational image Reuters The tax department has charged the party with not filing a "true and correct" contribution report for donations received for the assessment year 2014-15 which have been found to be over Rs 3008 crore after year long investigations The taxman said the first audit report filed by the party to it and the Election Commission under the provisions of the Representation of People Act were "incorrect and fabricated" The notice said that in view of these charges the department seeks to file a prosecution complaint (charge sheet) under I-T laws in a court under sections 277A (false statement in verification) and 276C (wilful attempt to evade tax) A maximum of three years rigorous imprisonment and a fine can be levied on an accused once the charges are proved in court It said that the exemption enjoyed by the Kejriwal-led AAP from paying income tax on donations could also be withdrawn as these privileges have been "wrongly claimed" Political parties enjoy tax exemption under section 13A of the Income Tax Act The notice while acknowledging that the party had accepted that there were "certain errors" in its first report filed in this regard added that this admission by the AAP was itself an evidence that its audit report was fabricated initially but was corrected after the taxman began investigations of its audit books and accounts AAP’s national treasurer Raghav Chadha termed the development as a "classic case of victimisation" "In the last four days we have received four notices from the Centre — from one wing of the I-T or the other or the MHA It is a classic case of victimisation They (the Centre) have gone through every record of ours but have not been able to find anything This is just concoction to malign and harass us It is my legitimate right to revise my statement and you cannot prosecute me for that" he told PTI The tax department early this year had submitted these findings to the Election Commission too Baltimore: Barack Obama offered an impassioned rebuttal of "inexcusable" Republican election rhetoric against Muslims Wednesday on his first trip to an American mosque since becoming president seven years ago President Barack Obama / AP Obama whose grandfather converted to Islam made the short trip to the Islamic Society of Baltimore to call on Americans not to be "bystanders to bigotry" Invoking the Prophet Mohammed and hailing the tolerance shown by American political icons from Thomas Jefferson to Dwight Eisenhower Obama hit out at anti-Islamic sentiment that is "not who we are" "We’ve heard inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslim-Americans that has no place in our country" he said lauding Muslim-Americans as sports heroes entrepreneurs and the architect who fashioned Chicago’s dizzying skyline His comments came as a shrill election debate has sullied America’s image abroad and as jihadist attacks in San Bernardino and Philadelphia threatened to shatter post-9/11 religious solidarity at home Six days after the 2001 attacks in New York and Washington then president George W Bush visited the Islamic Center of Washington declaring "Islam is peace" Today Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has wooed conservative voters by demanding a ban on Muslim immigrants while frontrunner Ted Cruz has advocated Christian-only admissions and championed "Judeo-Christian values" Obama took on such comments and asked Christians to see "an attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths" He also criticized the media and Hollywood which he said portrayed Muslims in a narrow way "Our television shows should have Muslim characters that are unrelated to national security" he said – ‘Thank you’ Obama has visited mosques in Malaysia Indonesia and Egypt as president but this was his first visit to one of America’s 2000-plus places of Islamic worship In 2009 a freshly elected Obama traveled to Cairo to call for a "new beginning" with the Muslim world Much of Obama’s foreign policy agenda has focused on improving ties with Muslim nations from making a nuclear deal with Iran to ending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan But the effort has been stymied by continued confrontation with jihadist groups and military strikes in Afghanistan Iraq Libya Pakistan Somalia Syria and Yemen Obama restated his case that organizations like the Islamic State group pervert Islam and do not represent the vast majority of Muslims The president offered "two words that Muslim-Americans don’t hear often enough and that is ‘thank you’" But he also called on Muslims to help tackle radicalization "How do we defend ourselves against organizations that are bent on killing innocents" he asked "It can’t be the work of any one faith alone It can’t be just a burden on the Muslim community although the Muslim community has to play a role" That message is a vexed one for members of the Muslim community including audience member Riham Osman who works for the Muslim Public Affairs Council an advocacy group "I know national security will come up in the speech just because of the climate of today" she said ahead of Obama’s remarks "It does upset me a little bit that it is his first time coming to visit a mosque and there will be kids there who have grown up in this post 9/11 era and their faith is constantly linked to national security and extremism" Around 49 percent of all Americans think "at least some" US Muslims hold anti-American sentiments according to a Pew Research Center poll released Wednesday The United States is home to around 33
