चांद दिखा, मुकद्दस रमजान का शनिवार को पहला रोज़ा

(नई दिल्ली)चांद दिखा, मुकद्दस रमजान का शनिवार को पहला रोज़ा
दिल्ली समेत पूरे देश में रमज़ान का मुकद्दस महीना शनिवार से शुरू होगा। उलेमा ने कोरोना वायरस को देखते हुए मुस्लिम समुदाय से घरों में ही इबादत करने की अपील की है।
दिल्ली की फतेहपुरी मस्जिद के शाही इमाम मुफ्ती मुकर्रम अहमद ने पीटीआई-भाषा से कहा, ‘मैं ऐलान करता हूं कि दिल्ली में कल पहला रोज़ा होगा।“
उन्होंने कहा “दिल्ली में चांद नहीं दिखा है, लेकिन बिहार, कोलकाता, रांची और हरियाण समेत कई स्थानों पर चांद दिखा है।“
मुफ्ती मुकर्रम ने कहा कि मुस्लिम समुदाय के सदस्य कोरोना वायरस को रोकने के लिए लागू लॉकडाउन का पालन करें और नमाज़ और तरावीह (रमज़ान में रात में पढ़ी जाने वाली विशेष नमाज़) घरों में ही पढ़ें।
रमज़ान मुसलमानों के लिए सबसे पाक महीना होता है। समुदाय के सदस्य पूरे महीने रोज़ा रखते हैं और सूरज निकलने से लेकर डूबने तक कुछ नहीं खाते पीते हैं। साथ में महीने भर इबादत करते हैं और अपने गुनाहों की माफी मांगते हैं।

India Studying Trump’s Executive Order on Immigration

(New Delhi) India studying Trump’s executive order on immigration
On Wednesday, the US pr signed the order to protect the jobs of American people in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic which has inflicted severe damage to the country’s economy.
The sources said India is studying the possible impact of the order on Indians.
It is not immediately known how many Indians may be impacted by the order. The order is likely to have a bearing on those applying for permanent residency in the US.
The temporary suspension of immigration will affect those who are legally seeking entry into the United States for employment but it will not impact the ones who are already living in the country,
The White House, in a statement, described the move as a “temporary pause” demanded by the crisis being faced by the US in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
“The pause will be in effect for 60 days, and the administration will continue to monitor the labour market to amend or extend the proclamation if needed,” it said.

Social Distancing Should be Same for Ramzan, Easter: Trump

Social Distancing should be Same for Ramzan, Easter: Trump
More than 700,000 cases of coronavirus have been reported in the United States, forcing religious communities across the country to shutter their doors.
The Islamic Society of North America, alongside Muslim medical experts, has urged the suspension of group prayers, among other gatherings. President Donald Trump has said he hopes US Muslims will be held to the same social distancing standards during Ramzan as Christians at Easter, when a number of faithful chafed against coronavirus-related restrictions on large gatherings.
The US president made the comments after being asked to defend a retweet of a conservative commentator who seemed to question whether Muslims would be treated with the same severity as Christians who broke social distancing rules.
Ramzan, which begins at sunset on Thursday, falls a week and a half after Easter, when some Christians bucked public health regulations to attend illicit services.
Asked whether he thought imams would refuse to follow social distancing orders, Trump responded: “No, I don’t think that at all.” “I am somebody that believes in faith. And it matters not what your faith is. But our politicians seem to treat different faiths very differently.”
Jewish Americans were likewise forced to turn traditional Passover seders into virtual affairs when the eight-day holiday began at sundown on April 8.
Despite similar measures taken across much of the Christian community, a Virginia pastor who continued to preach in defiance of stay-at-home rules died a week ago of coronavirus.
And pastors at two megachurches in Florida and Louisiana have been arrested on misdemeanor charges for flouting stay-at-home orders.

प्रेजिडेंट ट्रम्प ने कोरोना का ठीकरा डब्लूएचओ के सिर फोड़ते हुए आर्थिक सहायता रोकी

(वाशिंगटन) प्रेजिडेंट ट्रम्प ने कोरोना का ठीकरा डब्लूएचओ के सिर फोड़ते हुए आर्थिक सहायता रोकी
अमेरिकी राष्ट्रपति डोनाल्ड ट्रम्प ने मंगलवार को विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन को दी जाने वाली आर्थिक सहायता पर रोक लगाने का ऐलान किया है
ट्रंप ने कहा कि जब तक घातक कोरोना वायरस के प्रसार को कम करने को लेकर ‘‘प्रबंधन में गंभीर गलती करने और जानकारी को छुपाने में’ डब्ल्यूएचओ की भूमिका की समीक्षा नहीं हो जाती, तब तक यह रोक जारी रहेगी।
जॉन्स हॉपकिन्स यूनिवर्सिटी के अनुसार, कोरोना वायरस से अब तक अमेरिका में 25,000 से अधिक, जबकि विश्वभर में कम से कम 1,19,000 लोगों की मौत हो चुकी है।
कोरोना वायरस का पहला मामला पिछले साल नवंबर में चीन के वुहान शहर में सामने आया था।
ट्रंप प्रशासन ने डब्ल्यूएचओ पर चीन की तरफदारी करने का आरोप लगाया है जिसकी वजह से अमेरिका की अर्थव्यवस्था में ठहराव आ गया है।
राष्ट्रपति ने कहा कि अमेरिका के करदाता डब्ल्यूएचओ को सालाना 40 से 50 करोड़ डॉलर देते हैं जबकि चीन सालाना तकरीबन 4 करोड़ डॉलर या उससे भी कम राशि देता है।
ट्रंप का कहना है कि कोरोना के प्रकोप में अपना कर्तव्य निभाने में डब्ल्यूएचओ पूरी तरह नाकाम हुआ है। उन्होंने आरोप लगाया कि चीन में जब यह वायरस फैला तो संयुक्त राष्ट्र की संस्था ने उसे छुपाने की कोशिश की और इसके लिए उसे जवाबदेह ठहराया जाना चाहिए।
