May Signal Crackdown on Islamist Extremism

Muslim community in UK is under direct threat after Prime Minister Theresa May's statement targeting Islamic values. It has embolden violence against Muslim.

Britain’s response to terrorism must change, Prime Minister Theresa May said Sunday after terrorists struck central London on Saturday night.

“There is, to be frank, far too much tolerance of extremism in our society,” she said.

Speaking outside Downing Street after she chaired a meeting of Cobra, the government’s emergency committee, May said the U.K.’s general election will go ahead as planned on Thursday despite the suspension of campaigning in response to the attack.

The prime minister signaled a crackdown on Islamist extremism in the U.K., insisting that it had been “tolerated” for too long. Declaring “enough is enough” May said new powers could be rushed through for the security services, as well as longer prison sentences for known fanatics and new measures to remove internet “safe spaces” for extremist sympathizers.

“This is the third terrorist attack Britain has experienced in the last three months,” she noted, adding that the incident was not linked to last month’s suicide bombing in Manchester, but warned it was part of a “new trend.”

“We cannot and must not pretend that things can continue to carry on as they are,” she said. “Enough is enough.”

Possibility of screening Muslims in UK and a fresh review of immigration rules is also on the cards.

India's River Diversion Plan and South Asia's Waters

More dams are to come, as India’s need to power its economy means it is quietly spending billions on hydropower in Kashmir. The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
