Why can't Muslim women have four husbands too? asks Kerala High Court judge - Firstpost


Newspapers this morning are replete with Photographs and Headlines of a jubilant Indian Cricket team, after winning the Asia Cup in Bangladesh yesterday, for a record 6th time. The Times of India writes - "Men in Blue conquer Asia, now for the World".

The other news item highlighted by the Press is of an Intelligence Bureau warning - placing Delhi and Gujrat on High Alert. The Indian Express writes that inputs provided by the Pakistani National Security Advisor to his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval - that terrorists may unleash a fidayeen assault on religious sites on Monday and Tuesday, have mobilized the Indian security apparatus on a massive scale.

Addressing the National Conference of Women Legislators in Parliament's Central Hall yesterday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached out to women - with a strong message for their empowerment and becoming effective as people's representatives.

The Times of India writes - "Government lists 12 bills for passage this week". Encouraged by the passage of three bills in the Rajya Sabha, despite show-downs over issues like the JNU sedition case, the government displayed its business-like intent and put the onus on the Congress for any obstruction.

"Black Money Scheme is not a Blanket Waiver" -  headlines The Economic Times. People who have received 'notices' cannot take recourse to the scheme unveiled in the recent Budget. The Government will strive to ensure that the domestic black money 'amnesty window' isn't misused by tax offenders.

And finally, The Times of India warn us that consumption of food with a high glycemic index, such as white bread, bagels, cornflakes and puffed rice may be associated with an increased risk of lung cancer, according to a study at the University of Texas.
