pertains to the realm of “ought to be” its main part pertains to “what the law is” Top News The judgment in the triple divorce matter may be delivered soon There were some interesting questions from the bench A question that was not answered with sufficient clarity was how can triple divorce be sinful yet legal The distinction between “law” and “morality” is taught in the first semester of LLB The distinction between “what law ought to be” and “what law is” is well known The Indian Constitution’s Preamble pertains to the realm of “ought to be” its main part pertains to “what the law is” Take the example of adultery In India men are punished for adultery but women are not Is adultery not an example of something sinful yet legal in most Western countries Similarly homosexuality or same sex marriages may be considered by many to be sinful but they are legal in a number of jurisdictions The concept of “sin” draws on blind beliefs based on morality and no court can make something pious if a religious sect considers it sinful At the outset we must understand that Islamic law is a jurist-given system of rules Most of its sources are not divine Only the Quran is divine and the Prophet though a human being was divinely-inspired There are very few verses in the Quran which actually lay down law Quranic verses are vague general and at times contradictory and extracting law from them is difficult They have to be read along with other sources such as the sayings and doings of the Prophet consensus amongst the learned customs and analogical deductions Public interest also plays a role in such a process The text of the Quran may not in all situations tell us the rules of law for all the schools of Muslims There is a divergence of opinion amongst Islamic jurists which means that there are several schools of Islamic law Every Muslim has a right to follow a school He is also free to not follow any school One may also cherry-pick rules from different schools In India most Muslims follow the Hanafi school The controversy over instant triple talaq stems from the fact that this school deems this practice as valid Article 26 of the Constitution guarantees freedom “in matters of religion” to not only “every religious denomination” but also to “to any sect thereof” Thus the Hanafi school enjoys constitutional protection Since in the case before the Supreme Court the dispute is about Hanafi law (Shayara Bano is Hanafi) the court should ideally examine authoritative Hanafi books such as Hedaya and Fatwa-e-Alamgiri to investigate the validity of triple divorce The Hanafi-dominated Muslim Personal Board does not have the courage to say that under the law of the school we need to primarily look at the opinion of Abu Hanifa and his two disciples Imam Yusuf and Imam Mohammad who developed the jurisprudence of this school In so far as looking at the source of law for the Hanafi school is concerned the Quran is not the apposite repository — though it is the divine book and held sacred by those adhering to the school The opinion of leading jurists of the school is what matters They imitate the jurists of their school and thus their reluctance for reforms Denominational freedom both in Islam and under the Constitution does permit strange beliefs Thus muta or temporary marriages are valid for Shias but absolutely sinful under Sunni schools Ahmadiyas who have been held as Muslims by our courts do not accept the finality of Prophet Mohammad — the core belief of other schools The exalted status of Saiyedna or Dai is legal under the Bohra school but sinful under other Shia schools and all Sunni schools Some Muslim sects even believe in the 10 incarnations of Vishnu and follow classical Shastric Hindu law Even within the Hanafi school something may be sinful yet legal Thus if a person makes a gift of his entire property in favour of one of his children to the exclusion of others such a gift is sinful but valid Even the Prophet’s strong disapproval cannot make an action illegal under the Hanafi school Though the Prophet has expressed his displeasure on bequeathing property to one child while excluding others as well as on instant triple talaq both practices remain valid under the Hanafi school The issue thus is not whether triple divorce is an essential practice of Islam but whether it is an essential practice of Hanafi school In my opinion it is not But my opinion or my opposition to triple divorce is not under dispute The real problem which the court needs to appreciate is that once there is triple divorce the Hanafi school regards resumption of the matrimonial relationship between the divorced couple as both sinful and illegal The judgment of the court may make such a reunion legal but if illiterate masses neighbourhood and relatives continue to regard such a reunion as sinful and illegitimate we will be creating more problems for the couple and their children In fact in one such situation the wife went to the Delhi High Court (Masroor Ahmad case) with charges of rape against the husband Thus striking down triple divorce as unconstitutional or holding it un-Islamic in itself will not help We must educate people and the Board must ensure that all divorces henceforth happen as per the Quranic procedure The best solution to remove the menace of triple divorce under the Hanafi school is to order the incorporation of an explicit condition in the nikahnama that there shall be no instant triple divorce and the wife too will have a right to divorce The writer is vice-chancellor NALSAR University

NASA scientists have developed a new device to monitor harmful radiation exposure which may help keep astronauts safe during deep space missions such as the manned-mission to Mars Launched on the fifth Orbital ATK resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS) the Fast Neutron Spectrometer is designed to detect and measure the energy of neutrons which are known to be specifically harmful to humans Understanding neutron radiation will help keep crews safe when NASA sends humans to Mars “While there are already advanced instruments to detect gamma rays produced by supernovas or black holes X-rays and other charged particles we needed a way to detect and measure neutron radiation to quantify the impact on human biology” said Mark Christl from the NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Centre in the US “Neutron detection techniques have not seen the same leap in technology advancement” Christl saidNeutron radiation is created when the high-energy particles from our Sun and outside our solar system interact with other particles or matter such as a spacecraft or a planetary surface However these neutrons are only viable for about 13 minutes before they decay into charged particles Fast Neutron Spectrometer is comprised of an aluminum housing with a plastic scintillator that slows down a neutron when it hits the device and glass scintillator fibres that absorb neutrons and re-emit the energy in the form of light NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough installed the device on the space station in December last year Since then it has been moved to different locations around the interior of the station and it currently resides in the Node 1 module The Fast Neutron Spectrometer will monitor for neutrons for six months sending data for any neutron strikes to a laptop computer on the station That data will be downloaded daily for processing and analysisThe device was tested and calibrated at particle accelerators and by using other radioactive sources on Earth If the technique is verified Christl hopes it can be used on future missions to determine when and how much neutrons are contributing to the radiation absorbed by a crew of space travelers Also Read:Stunning pictures of Jupiter sent Nasa’s from Juno spacecraft See here Even though the space station’s radiation environment is not considered “deep space” the spectrometer is a new capability ready for validation in a space environment”We use different techniques for charged particles and neutrons and we’ll need to know the dose from both to know how much radiation the astronauts are

The news of the arrest of Sajjad Ahmed Abdul Aziz Mugal alias Pathan by the Mumbai police on the morning of October 11 was unexpected and sudden It brought to an end the despair and anguish to which my family had plunged into for over a year-and-a-half since this dreaded criminal jumped parole to escape life imprisonment Arresting Sajjad from Kashmir was by no means an easy job for the Mumbai police Sajjad is not a simple first-time petty criminal as he made himself out to be He is a hardened criminal who did not commit the crime on the spur of the moment — as the sessions court’s judge has opined The way he plotted his escape from Nasik jail by seeking parole to meet his sick mother reveals his criminal mindset Reports that Sajjad was in the process of acquiring a false Aadhaar card shows his criminal bent of mind Once free Sajjad employed all tricks in his armoury to deceive the police His planning and execution of the murderous assault on my daughter Pallavi inside her own flat in pursuit of his lust was so immaculate that it convinced the sessions judge into awarding him life imprisonment — and not capital punishment This was despite his conviction on all charges — under sections 302 (murder) 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with the intent to outrage her modesty) 449 (trespassing in order to commit an offence punishable with death) of IPC and section 37(1) (a) read with 135 of the Bombay Police Act1951(possession of knife in contravention of ban) — that were levied on him by the Mumbai Police Crime Branch Sajjad hailed from Uri in Jammu and Kashmir After jumping parole he escaped to the safe havens of his home state He knew that once there it would be impossible for any police from outside the state to nab him Sajjad was shrewd enough to exploit the advantages of his physical appearance language religion and the difficult terrain of Jammu and Kashmir to protect himself against attempts by the Mumbai Police to arrest him It was therefore a herculean task for the Mumbai Police to arrest Sajjad from his hideout in Kashmir The law and order situation in the state made it very difficult for police to move freely more so in places like Uri Baramulla and the surrounding areas where security combing is very tight to check anti-national and terrorist activities The chances of the task force getting identified was very high Mounting an operation in such a difficult and hostile terrain by the Mumbai Police was akin to undertaking covert action in an enemy area When I met D Padsalgikar Mumbai’s police commissioner in September 2016 after Sajjad had managed his escape he was most sympathetic and assured me that he would leave no stone unturned in arresting the culprit Frankly I couldn’t recognise his steely resolve then and interpreted his gesture as one meant merely to console me The success of Mumbai Police in arresting Sajjad comes as a huge morale booster for the public Whenever such a heinous crime is committed society reacts with shock and anger There is huge criticism of the law and order machinery And when such dreaded criminals escape with the connivance of the very officials tasked to guard them the trust and the faith of society in the government machinery collapses The arrest of Sajjad from what he assumed was the safe havens of his home state — and in retrospect within a reasonable time — sends a very strong message that criminals will never be able to escape from the strong arm of the law and will be made to pay for their misdeeds It tells us about the dogged determination of the Mumbai Police’s Crime Branch The Mumbai Police’s execution of the operation speaks volumes of the capability and expertise of its senior officials in mounting covert operations The police team which executed the operation almost 2000 km away from Mumbai in a hostile and difficult environment comprised officials who were daring disciplined and well-trained They had faith in themselves and were ready to take up the challenge even at risk to their personal safety These are the sterling qualities of which heroes are made of These are accomplishments which uniformed organisations like the police force cherish for years and the personnel involved in such operations become legends These successes are trophies which encourage future generations in the force to achieve impossibilities in the line of duty The Mumbai Police has set a very high standard in one of the basic and important police functions that is tracking down culprits and bringing them to book That there were no major hiccups in the execution of the task is indicative of the extreme professionalism in the force It is a huge relief for the nation that the Mumbai Police could apprehend Sajjad before he could succeed in his plan to obtain a false Aadhaar identity Had he executed his plan Sajjad would have opened a channel for other criminals including terrorists from across the border for acquiring the most important document of identification in the country I hope this factor gets due cognisance during the hearing of the appeal petition for death penalty to Sajjad Society blames the police for its failures and rightly so But when it succeeds the police force deserves our gratitude The Mumbai Police personnel involved in this operation with Padsalgikar at the helm are the the pride of the country’s police services I am sure the entire country is applauding their success We the grieving family bow to them with gratitude These officials deserve the highest recognition given to the police force Bollywood would be well justified in making a movie on the Mumbai police’s success It is also time to acknowledge the effort of the media in creating adequate awareness on the issue of abuse of women in the country and keeping alive the memory of this case Sajjad has now unmasked himself adequately for the judiciary to recognise what a dreaded criminal he is and give him the capital punishment while adjudicating on the appeal pending before Bombay High Court The writer is the father of Pallavi Purkayastha who was murdered in Mumbai on August 9 2012 For all the latest Opinion News

looked at the design process for the Home Pod as if they were creating an accessory which is responsible for its limited functioning with respect to Amazon’s Echo (Image Source: Bloomberg) Related News Apple Inc audio engineers had been working on an early version of the HomePod speaker for about two years in 2014 when they were blindsided by the Echo a smart speaker from Amazoncom Inc with a voice-activated assistant named Alexa The Apple engineers jokingly accused one another of leaking details of their project to Amazon then bought Echos so they could take them apart and see how they were put together They quickly deemed the Echo’s sound quality inferior and got back to work building a better speaker More than two years passed In that time Amazon’s Echo became a hit with consumers impressed by Alexa’s ability to answer questions order pizzas and turn lights on and off Meanwhile Apple dithered over its own speaker according to people familiar with the situation The project was cancelled and revived several times they said and the device went through multiple permutations (at one point it stood 3 feet tall) as executives struggled to figure out how it would fit into the home and Apple’s ecosystem of products and services In the end the company plowed ahead figuring that creating a speaker would give customers another reason to stay loyal Yet despite having all the ingredients for a serious competitor to the Echo—including Siri and the App Store—Apple never saw the HomePod as anything more than an accessory like the AirPods earphones As a result when the $350 gadget debuts early next year (on Friday Apple delayed the launch from December) the HomePod won’t be able to do many of the things the Echo can Amazon offers thousands of “skills” (voice-activated apps) that let users do a range of things (including buy stuff from Amazon) The Google Home Mini which debuted earlier this year is similarly endowed The HomePod will be mostly limited to playing tunes from Apple Music controlling Apple-optimized smart home appliances and sending messages through an iPhone “This is a huge missed opportunity” said one of the people who requested anonymity to discuss an internal matter Apple declined to comment The HomePod was originally a side project cooked up about five years ago by a group of Mac audio engineers who wanted to create a speaker that sounded better than the ones sold by the likes of Bose JBL and Harman Kardon Side projects aren’t uncommon at Apple where employees are encouraged to follow their muse so long as their day jobs come first The engineers wanted a product that would pass muster with audiophiles Several members of the impromptu team hailed from big-name speaker makers and dreamed of perfecting a much-anticipated technology called “beam forming” It directs sound to specific places in a room creating immersive 3-D audio (Sonos debuted a smart speaker with beam forming in October; the Google Home Max due out next month also has the technology Amazon Echo’s microphones use beam forming to hear commands from anywhere in a room) Once Apple decided to use beam forming designers experimented with various shapes One prototype looked like a flat panel with a mesh screen on the front Another was about five times as tall as today’s 7-inch HomePod and packed in dozens of speakers At one point Apple considered selling the device under the Beats brand but the idea was abandoned There was discussion of adding a second woofer and including mid-range speakers to boost the sound quality even further Designers also mulled producing the speaker in several colors but eventually decided on black and white Over the years a closet filled up with prototypes a kind of mini museum dedicated to the HomePod Two years into development the side project finally got an official codename (B238) and a home inside Apple’s accessories division which also worked on the AirPods earphones and is run by Gary Geaves who previously was R&D chief at audio company Bowers & Wilkins When the HomePod project gained its own team engineers were relocated to Valley Green 1 an office near Apple’s original headquarters in Cupertino California Apple tested many variations of the speaker in specially designed audio chambers and built a trio of testing spaces designed to mimic real life: a college dorm living room and open-plan studio apartment By 2016 Apple was testing the device inside the homes of employees not connected to the HomePod’s audio development in an effort to get unbiased feedback Later Apple also asked select retail store employees around the world to test the HomePod The HomePod’s six microphones were optimized to pick up commands over conversations running washing machines and blasting televisions The speaker grills were kid-proofed The gadget’s feet were designed so the vibrations wouldn’t knock it off a shelf Testers dropped the speaker from various heights and even threw it in a room with young kids While Apple engineers toiled away Amazon unveiled the Echo While it was officially called a speaker the device’s main appeal was Alexa By then Apple’s own digital assistant Siri was three years old and had overcome initial glitches But the Siri team was told that the HomePod was about music and quality sound one of the people said Yes the speaker would be voice-activated but it wouldn’t be positioned as a personal assistant As of this year the HomePod was just one of the four or five areas the Siri team was working on the person said The Echo is a standalone product and lets Amazon open up to its products and services ecosystem (Image Source: Bloomberg) The Echo is a truly standalone product at the center of an ecosystem The cloud-based operating system has made it easy for developers to create thousands of skills or voice-activated apps By contrast the HomePod is essentially an extension of the iPhone like an accessory When someone asks the HomePod to open a third-party app the request won’t go directly to the cloud as with the Echo but to an iPhone As a result developers can’t write apps for the HomePod They must create tweaked versions of existing iPhone apps What’s more Apple has limited the kinds of apps to messaging to-do lists and notes If Alexa is the beating heart of the Echo Siri is almost an afterthought On Apple’s website the HomePod is listed as an accessory under the music menu For several pages the company touts the product’s superior sound quality deemed excellent by reviewers Eventually the marketers get around to Siri Even then it’s still all about the music: “Hey Siri who’s the drummer in this song Hey Siri play some hip hop” Apple has told suppliers it expects to ship four million HomePods in 2018 according to a person with knowledge of the matter Taipei-based Fubon Securities analyst Arthur Liao predicted those production numbers earlier this month By comparison Amazon has sold an estimated 15 million units since going on sale in 2015 according to analysts at CIRP LLC This isn’t the first time Apple has tried to sell its own speaker In 2006 the company debuted the iPod Hi-Fi for $349 It flopped and was discontinued a year and a half after going on sale Once again Apple is betting superior audio will vault the HomePod past competing speakers But rivals are following suit and improving the sound quality of their own products Sonos a pioneer in quality wireless speakers launched its first smart model last month Google’s $400 Home Max will focus more on audio quality and Amazon’s latest flagship Echo lineup has a more powerful speaker than the original Apple could still eventually add features to the HomePod These might include its own app ecosystem and support for competing music

Jr. a former CDC expert on sexually transmitted diseases who now oversees a local health department in Colorado Male-to-female transmission is considered far more likely than the other way around experts said One reason is that Zika virus has been found to linger in semen for more than two months but is thought to stay in vaginal fluid no more than two weeks said Dr John T Brooks a CDC expert on sexually-transmitted diseases who is part of the agency’s Zika response team The case likely does not complicate efforts to fight the virus or show an important additional pathway for transmission Brooks said because female-to-male transmission is relatively difficult In the New York case for example several factors lined up to allow the disease to spread The couple had sex just before the woman developed symptoms a time when the amount of virus in her body may have been particularly high They had sex just before her period started so there may have been a small amount of early bleeding And the man was uncircumcised and uncircumcised men are considered at higher risk of catching sexually transmitted diseases For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top

Photo) Related News Men infected with one type of genital human papillomavirus (HPV) may be at 20 times more at risk of reinfection with the same type researchers say HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection and it is a major cause of genital warts and cancers of the genitals mouth and throat The findings showed that men who are infected once with HPV16 — the type responsible for most HPV-related cancers — are at 20 times higher risk of reinfection after one year and 14 times higher after two years The same effect was observed in both men who are sexually active and celibate suggesting that they are not reacquiring the virus from another sexual partner This increased risk suggests that infection confers no natural immunity against HPV and emphasises the importance of vaccination for preventing the spread of HPV in young men before they become sexually active Vaccination could potentially prevent reinfection in older men who have already contracted the virus the researchers said “Vaccinating boys before HPV exposure could be a highly effective way to reduce the burden of HPV infection Vaccinating men who have already been infected might also be effective” said lead author Sylvia Ranjeva doctoral student at the University of Chicago For the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences the team analysed data of over 4000 unvaccinated men from three cities in Florida Mexico and Brazil to understand what allowed over 200 genetically-distinct HPV types to coexist The researchers found that the diversity of HPV types may stem from recurring infections of particular types within individuals While relatively few people are infected with any one type the high overall HPV prevalence occurs because nearly half the adult population carries at least one type of genital HPV “The best thing we can do is prevent the initial infection by vaccinating boys before sexual contact However if the increased risk of reinfection is due to auto-inoculation then another effective strategy may be to vaccinate previously infected men as well” Ranjeva said For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related
