Protesting wrestlers vow to keep movement apolitical, seek justice for women
Wrestlers protesting against Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh have accused a few people of trying to take their movement in a different direction. Olympic bronze medallist Bajrang Punia clarified that their fight is for justice for India’s daughters, and not for political gain.
The protestors have sought support from all politicians, farmers, and women’s organizations since they resumed their protest. Vinesh Phogat apologized if they had said anything that goes against the honor of people in constitutional posts, while Bajrang and Vinesh remained silent about who was giving their protest a political color.
The wrestlers in protest refuted Singh’s assertion that they were attempting to obtain an exemption from participating in national tournaments. According to Vinesh, they have missed just four Nationals because of injuries, COVID-19, mental health issues, and the inability to lose weight three times in one month.
The problem, according to Bajrang, is sexual harassment, not Nationals, and Singh needs to respond. In addition, the wrestlers said that Delhi police had shut off their electricity and had prevented them from bringing food, drink, mattresses, and wooden cots to the protest site.
PM Narendra Modi Highlights Cricket’s Role in Connecting India and Australia, Pays Tribute to Shane Warne
ऑस्ट्रेलिया में ऐसी कितनी ही चीजें हैं, जो भारतवंशियों को अपनी जड़ों से जोड़कर रखती हैं। यह और खुशी की बात है कि ऑस्ट्रेलिया के लोगों को भी भारतीयता के विविध रंग खूब भाते हैं। pic.twitter.com/qBhTffw7xC

Cricket has always played a significant role in bridging the gap between India and Pakistan, despite the absence of bilateral series due to political tensions. This sentiment was echoed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Australia, where he paid tribute to the late cricketer Shane Warne and emphasized the unifying power of the game, including the Women’s Premier League.
Currently on his Australia tour as part of a three-nation visit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the Indian community during a community event held at the Kudos Bank Arena Stadium in Sydney. He was warmly welcomed by the Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese.
Speaking to the Indian community, Prime Minister Narendra Modi fondly remembered the legendary cricketer Shane Warne and highlighted how cricket acts as a connecting force between nations.
He expressed, “Our cricketing relationship spans 75 years. It is not just about sharing moments of joy. We are more than that. When Shane Warne passed away last year, Indians mourned his loss. It felt like we had lost someone dear to us.”
Shane Warne, who passed away on March 4, 2022, was a revered Australian cricketer and former captain of the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League (IPL). His leadership led the team to victory in the inaugural season. Warne’s encounters with Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar are etched in cricketing folklore, with Warne even admitting that Tendulkar’s prowess haunted his dreams, where Tendulkar effortlessly hit sixes over his head.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks emphasize the deep emotional connection shared by cricket enthusiasts in India and Australia. The tribute to Shane Warne also serves as a reminder of the profound impact that cricket has in bringing people together, transcending boundaries and fostering friendship between nations.
Furthermore, the Prime Minister acknowledged the inaugural Women’s Premier League, where Australian women cricketers visited India to participate. This gesture highlights the growing significance of women’s cricket and the expansion of sports diplomacy between India and Australia.
Cricket continues to be a powerful medium that fosters a sense of camaraderie and strengthens the bonds between nations, showcasing the unique role it plays in connecting people, cultures, and nations alike.
Opposition Leaders Slam BJP Government Over Gangster’s Killing in UP: Is India Turning Into a ‘Mafia Raj
Opposition leaders have criticized the BJP-led government over the killing of gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmad and his brother in Prayagraj district, using terms like “jungle raj” and “mafia raj”.
Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh stated that the rule of law should be upheld, even for criminals, and anyone violating it for political purposes should be held accountable. Sitaram Yechury, CPI(M) general secretary, demanded strict action against those responsible for the incident, while TMC MP Mouha Moitra claimed that India has become a “mafia republic” under BJP rule.
She even suggested that the shooting may have been done to divert attention from the Satyapal Malik interview. The brothers were killed while being escorted to a medical college by police personnel, in the presence of the media, by three men posing as journalists. It is important to ensure that the judicial system and rule of law are always upheld, the opposition leaders emphasized.
Mayawati raises serious questions over UP government’s style of functioning after killing of gangster Atiq Ahmad and brother
BSP Chief Mayawati Raises Concerns Over Killing of Atiq Ahmad and His Brother Ashraf in Police Custody
The recent killing of gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmad and his brother Ashraf in police custody in Prayagraj has raised serious questions over the functioning of the Uttar Pradesh government, said BSP chief Mayawati on Sunday.
The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister urged the Supreme Court to take cognisance of this “extremely serious and worrisome” incident that has garnered widespread attention across the country. Mayawati expressed concern over the law and order situation in the state and the increasing number of encounters taking place.
Ahmad and his brother were shot dead by three men posing as journalists while they were being escorted to a medical college in Prayagraj for a checkup. The incident has raised serious questions on the functioning of the state government and its law and order situation. The UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has formed a three-member judicial commission to investigate the killings.
Father of Assailant in Atiq Ahmed’s Murder Case Says Son Was Jobless and Drug Addict: Latest Updates on the Controversial Incident
Jobless and drug-addicted, one of the arrested shooters in the killing of gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf Ahmed, had been estranged from his family for years, according to Yagya Tiwari, the father of the assailant Lovelesh. Speaking to reporters, Tiwari said, “He is my son.
We saw the incident on TV. We are not aware of the actions of Lovelesh nor do we have anything to do with this.” Meanwhile, Pintu Singh, the brother of shooter Sunny Singh, said, “We live separately and don’t know how he became a criminal. We have no idea about the incident.” The two assailants were among three people arrested after the brothers were shot dead while being taken for a medical examination in Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh.
Atiq Ahmed was accused in the 2005 murder of BSP MLA Raju Pal, and in the subsequent killing of key witness Umesh Pal in February 2022. The incident was captured on camera and a journalist and a constable were injured. The UP Chief Minister has ordered a three-member judicial commission to probe the incident.
Gangster-turned-Politician Atiq Ahmad and Brother Shot Dead While in Police Custody in Prayagraj
Former Samajwadi Party MP Atiq Ahmad and his brother Ashraf were killed in Prayagraj by three assailants disguised as journalists while they were being escorted by police for a medical checkup. The incident occurred two weeks after the Supreme Court of India rejected Ahmad’s plea for protection during his custody with the Uttar Pradesh Police in the Umesh Pal murder case.
Ahmad had alleged that he and his family were falsely accused in the case and that his life was under threat. However, the apex court granted him liberty to approach the Allahabad High Court for protection. The court had also noted that since Ahmad was in judicial custody, the Uttar Pradesh state machinery would take care of his protection in case of any danger to his life.
Ahmad’s plea had come up for hearing before a bench of Justices Ajay Rastogi and Bela M Trivedi, who refused to interfere in the matter and stated that the appropriate process prescribed under law would be followed. The former MP had cited a statement made by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in the state assembly to “completely ruin and destroy” him as evidence of a genuine and perceptible threat to his life and that of his family members.
The Umesh Pal murder case pertains to the killing of a key witness in the 2005 murder of Bahujan Samaj Party MLA Raju Pal and his two security guards. Ahmad was earlier lodged at Ahmedabad Central Jail in Gujarat, pursuant to the Supreme Court’s direction.

While calling the incident unfortunate, the organization raised questions about the police administration and emphasized that the Constitution should have been followed. They also advised people not to participate in any conspiracy, stating that mafia and bahubali have no religion. The organization warned against spreading rumors and urged people to be patient, as more details about the incident will be revealed.
The Pasmanda Muslim Samaj also joined the call for peace, urging everyone to avoid any actions that could disturb law and order. As the nation prepares for Eid celebrations, the organization emphasized the importance of maintaining a peaceful and harmonious atmosphere.
Atiq Ahmed and Brother’s Killing: Assailants Arrested, Confess to Wiping Out Gang and Making a Name for Themselves
Three men who shot and killed gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf in Prayagraj confessed to their crime on Sunday, saying that they did it to “become popular.” According to the FIR, the three wanted to completely eliminate the Atiq-Ashraf gang and gain recognition.
