Muslims ‘not persecuted’ in France, says country’s Muslim council – Times of India

PARIS: Muslims are "not persecuted" in France, the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM) said Monday as a row over radical Islam and freedom of speech pits Muslim nations against Paris. "France is a great country, Muslim citizens are not persecuted, they freely construct their mosques and they freely practise their religion," said the council, which acts as an official go-between for the state and observant Muslims. French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to take the fight to Islamist radicals after the October 16 beheading of a history teacher who had shown cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed to pupils in a class discussion on free speech. But a backlash against his comments saw protests in Muslim-majority countries over the weekend, with people burning pictures of Macron in Syria a...

Pakistan summons French envoy over Macron’s Islamist remarks – Times of India

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan summoned France's ambassador Monday to complain about a "systematic Islamophobic campaign" in the European nation after French President Emmanuel Macron criticised Islamists and defended the publication of religious cartoons. The move came as small, scattered protests were held in cities across Pakistan and a day after Prime Minister Imran Khan accused Macron of "attacking Islam". Foreign affairs ministry spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri told AFP the French ambassador had been summoned "to convey Pakistan's concerns over (the) systematic Islamophobic campaign under the garb of freedom of expression". The French embassy in Islamabad did not immediately comment. Macron spoke out last week after a Chechen extremist beheaded a French teacher near Paris after he had shown ...

Air pollution may hinder India’s fight against Covid-19, say scientists | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: The causal link between air pollution and Covid-19 cases is yet to be established conclusively but long-term exposure will certainly make people more vulnerable to lung infections, warn scientists as the skies over large parts of north India, including Delhi, turn smoky and the air quality deteriorates rapidly. Their concerns come amid several global studies pointing to the possible connection between higher air pollution levels and increased Covid-19 cases and deaths. A study by researchers at Harvard University in the US in September showed that an increase of only one microgram per cubic metre in PM 2.5 is associated with an 8 per cent increase in the Covid-19 death rate. “Given the current limited literature, the surge of PM2.5 level in Delhi may be associated with increa...
