Chandigarh-Shimla Diocese gives clean chit to the missionary school that expelled Ruchika
Even as the Chandigarh UT administration began its probe into allegations of Sacred Heart
School expelling Ruchika under influence of SPS Rathore, the Chandigarh-Shimla Diocese on Thursday gave the clean chit, saying that it did not expel Ruchika and that her name was struck off the rolls as she had not paid fees for six months.

This sparked an angry retort from Ruchika’s father Subhash Girhotra, who alleged that the school administration had categorically asked her not to enter the school after her name was taken off the rolls.

“Bring back Aurangzeb’s rule” says Congress’s Aurangabad candidate’s poster
The poster used in election campaign by one Sayyad Abdul Qadir Aamir (Qadir Maulana) – who stood on a Cong/NCP ticket from Aurangabad calls for Islamization of Aurangabad.

He also claimed to have been sent by Allah to hoist the Islamic flag over the land of Aurang(abad) – perhaps the last point refers to the Mughal emperor after whom the city was named. At this point the clueless types will ask: what was the Election Commission doing? While Qadir Maulana did not win the election, another Imam (a product of Deoband) did. This is the first time an imam has won in Maharashtra.
