“In France, Hopefully, alleged that he was beaten up by “local RSS men because I am a Muslim”.Police however said the youth was arrested for “harassing women” and charged under Section 294 (for obscene acts or words in public) Their allegation is largely based on local residents’ version and some complaints by women of “harassment” Several reports on Wednesday alleged that Wasim was assaulted by members of the Hindu Yuva Vahini a youth group founded by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who barged into his rented room in Meerut’s Shastri Nagar found him in a “compromising position with a Hindu woman” and accused him of forcefully trying to convert her in an act of “love jihad” A purported video of the incident was circulated on social media But Wasim denied this version “I had come to Shastri Nagar to collect my belongings because I had moved out” he said “Suddenly a few men came and asked me my name The moment I said Mohammad Wasim they began hitting me and accusing me of harassing women… There were 8-10 men at first 20 others joined the group later They let me go only when the policemen arrived” said Wasim speaking to The Indian Express over the phone on Wednesday after being released on bail Wasim denied that there was any woman with him Police said they had received complaints of harassment from some women in the area “When the police patrol team reached the spot we saw a boy standing there and singing obscene songs He was telling women ‘my darling you look very beautiful’” says the FIR lodged by constable Sunil Sharma who is the complainant in the case “We have no idea about any love jihad or conversion There was no girl Hindu or otherwise when the team reached the bridge near the locality — that is where we found him The team saw him harassing women and he admitted it following which he was arrested” claimed Senior Sub-Inspector Mohan Singh Wasim who hails from Muzaffarnagar denied the police’s version “Why would I harass women I have a Bachelor of Computer Applications degree and I have been preparing for my Master’s I was working as a field officer with a telecom company” he said Asked about the purported video he said: “It is all fake I haven’t even seen it Anyone can make a video and circulate it” The Hindu Yuva Vahini meanwhile had a different version “We were at a Hanuman Jayanti event in the neighbourhood when we received a call that something abhadra (immoral) was happening in Shastri Nagar Four-five of us went to the spot but by the time we reached they had already taken him (Wasim) to police station We went to thana

Tomar western UP head of the outfit “When the police asked him his name he said it was Sonu Why did he lie and use a Hindu name if he was not trying to do love jihad” asked Sachin Mittal 31 a Hindu Yuva Vahini member “Women would come here all the time… On Tuesday I went there with 20-25 women and forced them to open the door There was a girl there… We didn’t lay a finger on them just handed them to the police” said Neeraja Pundir a neighbour “I saw a girl with him and decided to call the others” said Ruby Parveen 29 another neighbour “The Hindu Yuva Vahini members came here after the youth was arrested shouted ‘Bharat mata ki jai’ slogans and left” said Upendra Singh 42 a resident of the area Sukhbir Singh Tyagi Wasim’s landlord refused to comment Meanwhile Wasim said he just

Top NewsPublished: July 22 2014 12:30 am Immunisation continues to be one of the most cost-effective interventions Related News BY: Seth Berkley India’s expenditure on vaccines should count as sound investment in a healthy future Plans by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to introduce four new vaccines to India’s Universal Immunisation Programme (UIP) have been welcomed across the globe as one of the most significant leaps in India’s public health policy in 30 years and rightly so These vaccines are currently available in India only on the private market beyond the reach of poor children living in unsanitary conditions But some sceptics have labelled the move as both unnecessary and costly This is a view that is not only wrong but also shortsighted The addition of these new vaccines to India’s existing immunisation programme is not just an example of great leadership but also makes good economic sense Introducing new vaccines does not just prevent death and disease it also maximises the lifetime potential of children and the economic health of families and the communities and countries in which they live This is particularly the case in India home to the largest number of unimmunised children in the world: 68 million or roughly a third of the world’s total Granted this is partly due to the fact that India has the largest birth cohort in the world of 27 million children each year but also because it has a particularly large gap in the health status between its rich and poor Immunisation can help bridge that gap By introducing the rotavirus vaccine as one of the new vaccines for example the Centre hopes to radically reduce the 80000 child deaths and one million hospitalisations it estimates are caused by diarrhoea each year These are children who could be going to school to improve their chances of a productive life Disease doesn’t just claim lives it impoverishes them too Currently organisations like Gavi Unicef WHO the World Bank and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation are working with governments industry and civil society organisations in preparation for the largest scale-up of immunisation coverage The goal of immunising an additional 300 million children across the globe between 2016 and 2020 will take an additional $95 billion But donors including the government of India are willing to invest in this venture because they know that it won’t just save lives but is also expected to generate between $80-100 billion in economic benefits They recognise that saving a life today reaps long-term benefits for families communities and countries Back of the envelope calculations by naysayers on the cost of vaccines fail to take this into account Some have argued that the money spent on vaccinations could go towards primary healthcare services and mobilising health workers But India has already done that with enormous success achieving what many believed was simply not possible — eliminating polio What’s more in doing so India created a vast infrastructure that has been used for a range of health services from neonatal and maternal care to improving nutrition There is an opportunity to build on this success and use the existing infrastructure and outreach that helped wipe out polio to increase India’s immunisation coverage for other vaccines To a large extent this process has already begun with India’s national scale-up of its pentavalent vaccine With Gavi support eight states have already rolled out this 5-in-1 vaccine with the remaining states set to introduce it by April 2015 Adding rotavirus rubella and injectable polio to India’s routine childhood immunisation programmes and adult Japanese encephalitis (JE) vaccine for adults in disease hotspots will take this further It is worth noting with the exception of JE all these vaccines are produced indigenously Modern vaccines can indeed be more expensive than the old and there will always be other areas that also need funding But immunisation continues to be one of the most cost-effective interventions Not just because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure but because immunisation makes economic sense It is a case of an investment versus an

third of them children during the 2014 Gaza war and to make the findings public Makarim Wibisono a former Indonesian ambassador issued his first report to the UN Human Rights Council since becoming its special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories last June US Secretary of State John Kerry accused the forum on Monday of being obsessed by allegations of Israeli abuses and said the United States would defend Israel against efforts to isolate it Some 2256 Palestinians were killed during the July-August conflict of whom 1563 were civilians including 538 children while 66 Israeli soldiers and five civilians died Wibisono said Israel says it launched the offensive after rocket attacks by militants operating out of the Islamist Hamas-ruled strip "The stark disparity in casualty figures on the two sides . reflects the (skewed) balance of power and the disproportionate cost borne by Palestinian civilians raising questions as to whether Israel adhered to the international law principles of distinction proportionality and precautions" Wibisono said Most civilian victims were "not simply bystanders on the street in the wrong place at the wrong time" he said
