Social media rules | Instant News


Social media rules have been in the news lately with increasing frequency. On April 2, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) requested a report from the inter-ministerial committee tasked with reviewing the regulation. IHC listens to the petition filed against the implementation of the ‘Removal and blocking of online content that violates the law (Procedure, surveillance and safeguards) 2020 Rules’. This rule has caused a lot of controversy because no democratic society in the world has strict rules for blocking and removing online content deemed illegal by the government. The arbitrary manner in which the government developed and enforced these rules sparked uproar and outcry across the country from activists and media professionals. This is when PM Imran Khan forms a five-member committee under the Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen Mazari. Now the committee is supposed to submit its report with recommendations to the prime minister within a month. Although the committee has announced that it will organize public consultations with all stakeholders, it remains to be seen how such consultations take place and what mechanisms are adopted to incorporate feedback from these consultations.

We have seen before how ‘consulting’ has worked, which is why there is general skepticism surrounding this consultation as well. This consultation method does not produce a critical analysis of the problem at hand. It is important to check the objections and suggestions of stakeholders before finalizing the report. It is also important to invite members from the opposition to consultations and discuss proposed rules in parliament before finalizing them. This is very important for freedom of expression in this country.

The aim of democratic institutions such as the National Assembly and Senate is to provide a forum for such discussion. The government has shied away from parliamentary discussions, which are incompatible with the established democratic traditions. The government has complied with presidential regulations or issued unilateral rules. When it comes to legislation and rule-making, we need the government to seriously tackle differences of opinion. Petitioners who oppose this rule include PFUJ, which has been at the forefront of defending freedom of expression in the country. Now, the government must hold broad-based consultations and so that any rules placed on social media in Pakistan are not just a fig leaf for curbing dissent.

Hilde Lee: Easter encourages reflection on diet, faith. | Food & Cooking | Instant News


Even though I grew up in a mixed religious family, I never realized that there was a difference. By the time I became aware of the world around me, Jews, regardless of the depth of their belief, had been wasted and many, many ended up in Hitler’s final solution – concentration camps. This includes 13 members of my immediate family. Of course, today, everything is history.

What are the food regulations in halal cooking? The real problem is separating the food so that it doesn’t contaminate each other. Whatever the food content, meat or dairy products, the cook must decide in advance and adjust the menu accordingly so that there is an appropriate timing between the consumption of meat and dairy products.

It makes sense, because it helps digestion.

Milk and meat should be kept separate. After centuries of interpretation, this is a simple idea. Thus, with these rules developed all ways of eating halal. For example, you cannot eat bread and butter or mix meat and milk dishes at the same meal time. After a meal containing meat, there should be a six hour waiting period before eating dairy foods again.

Apart from dairy foods and meat foods, there are pareve foods, or neutral foods, which can be served at any time. Pareve is the largest food category. It consists of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fish and eggs.

Centuries of discussion have contributed to the regulation and development of halal versus non-halal food and food.

Khuhro said the PM doesn’t enjoy the moral authority to rule anymore | Instant News


Sindh branch of Pakistan People’s Party president Nisar Ahmed Khuhro said Imran Khan did not have the moral authority to act again as the country’s prime minister.

He made this point on Saturday while speaking to media people after chairing a meeting of the party’s Sindh branch executive committee to review the arrangements being made for the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) anti-government long march to start in Karachi on March 26.

Khuhro said a new chapter had been added to political history because of the PDM’s victory against the Pakistani government Tehreek-e-Insaf in a Senate poll held in the National Assembly.

He said Prime Minister Khan had tried to controversial state institutions by giving the impression that they did support the government.

He said PM Khan before asking for a vote of confidence from the National Assembly had warned his party’s lawmakers that they would lose their parliamentary membership if they didn’t lend support to him.

He claimed that the people belonging to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf themselves were tired of the prime minister. He said one should not call elected legislators a “salable commodity”.

Khuhro is of the view that lawmakers in Senate polls are empowered to cast their votes in support of any candidate they like. He said their struggle would continue to safeguard the economic interests of the masses and also save them from exploitation.

He claims that the motion of no confidence that the PDM will put forward against PM Khan will work.

Speaking on the occasion, the Sindh Information Minister and the Regional Government Syed Nasir Hussain Shah said the PDM no-confidence motion against the PM would be successful.

He said members of the National Assembly would vote according to their conscience after the PDM moved the motion of no-confidence at home.

He condemned the violent incident against Pakistan Muslim League leader-Nawaz outside the Parliament Building in Islamabad.

The PPP Executive Committee Meeting decided on a subsidiary agency to take care of several matters related to the arrangements that will be made for the upcoming long march.
