The matter was closed after 14 private unaided schools submitted before the Bench of Chief Justice Dr. S. Muralidhar and Dr. Justice B. R. Sarangi, a MoU for waiver of fees at a flat rate in different slabs mentioned therein. Terms of MoU The MoU contemplates waiver of maximum 26% Tution/ composite fee for institutions where fees is above Rs. 1 lakh per annum. Similarly, there a separate slab rates, based on the fee amount. All schools charging fees upto Rs. 6,000/- shall not be liable to offer any waiver.The institutions have decided to waive of ‘Other Optional Fees’ till reopening of schools. However, the charges on Transport and Food shall remain as per actual. There is a flat waiver of 30% on Hostel fees. The Bench said, “this Court is not persuaded to further issue directions in the matter in light of the MOU arrived at between 14 educational institutions in Odisha on the question of fee waiver during the period of the Covid-19 pandemic.” It has however clarified that if any party to the MoU faces any problem in relation its terms, the same may be agitated in separate proceedings and examined on a case to case basis. “While this Court has recorded the fact of the MOU having been entered into, this will not preclude individual institutions or parties, who may be aggrieved or who may have a different point of view than that recorded in the MOU, or seek strict enforcement of the terms and conditions of recognition or grant of NOC as set out in the Resolution dated 23rd September 1996, from seeking appropriate reliefs in separate proceedings as are permissible to them in accordance with law,” the order stated. The development comes after the State Government expressed its inability to intervene in the matter as there is no provision under the Orissa Education Act, 1969 (‘OE Act’) and the Rules framed thereunder for fixation of fee structure of different unaided schools. The Government also stated that it has no objection if the Court accepts the MoU and passes appropriate directions. It referred to the case of DAV College Managing Committee v. Laxminarayan Mishra, whereby the Supreme Court accepted the recommendations of the Fee Structure Committee, Odisha, for fixation of fees for DAV School. It is pertinent to note here that certain minority institutions had expressed apprehensions with respect to the terms of the MoU. However, the Court refused to entertain the same, stating, “The problems faced by any of the parties in relation to any of the terms of the MOU will have to be agitated in other separate proceedings and examined on a case by case basis. No omnibus directions in that regard can possibly be issued at this stage.” Case Title: Mohammed Mustaq Ansari v. State of Odisha & Anr. Click Here To Download Order Read OrderNext Story

Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Abuja Nigeria (Source: AP Photo/File) Top News Three years ago the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls by the jihadist group Boko Haram in Chibok in northeastern Nigeria sparked global outrage and a celebrity-backed campaign #bringbackourgirls For more than two years there was no sign of the girls who were kidnapped by the Islamist fighters from their secondary school in Chibok in northeastern Borno State in April 2014 But the discovery of one of the girls with a baby last May raised hopes for their safety with a further two girls found in later months and a group of 21 released in October in a deal brokered by Switzerland and the International Red Cross Nigeria is facing mounting pressure to find the estimated 195 girls still held captive by the jihadist group Here are 10 key facts about the Chibok schoolgirls and Boko Haram: * Since 2009 Boko Haram has waged an insurgency to carve out an Islamic state in northeast Nigeria that has killed at least 20000 people and displaced more than two million * The most high-profile attack took place on April 14 2014 when Boko Haram kidnapped 276 schoolgirls from a secondary school in Chibok in northeast Borno state Around 50 of the girls escaped in the initial melee but 219 were captured * Nigeria’s government and military then under the command of former president Goodluck Jonathan faced heavy criticism for their handling of the incident with towns and cities across the nation witnessing protests * The kidnappings sparked a strong social media reaction with the phrase #bringbackourgirls tweeted around 33 million times by mid-May 2014 and the global campaign which followed backed by then US First Lady Michelle Obama * Hope for the girls was briefly raised in April 2015 when the Nigerian military announced it had rescued 200 girls and 93 women from the Sambisa forest northeast of Chibok It was later revealed that the Chibok girls were not among them * One of the Chibok girls Amina Ali was rescued in May Held for months by the Nigerian government she told her mother that the girls were starved and resorted to eating raw maize and that some had died in captivity suffered broken legs or gone deaf after being too close to explosions * At least 2000 girls and boys have been kidnapped by Boko Haram since the beginning of 2014 according to Amnesty International which says they are used as cooks sex slaves fighters and even suicide bombers * Boko Haram have used 27 children to carry out suicide attacks in West Africa in the first three months this year almost surpassing the total of 30 child bombings during 2016 said the UN children’s agency UNICEF * Nigeria is in talks with Boko Haram militants over the release of more of the abducted Chibok girls according to a mediator involved in the discussions * The militants split last year with one faction moving away from the group’s established figurehead Abubakar Shekau over his failure to adhere to guidance from Islamic State to which Boko Haram pledged allegiance in 2015 For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Reuters | Sydney | Published: October

Poitras, denied a spot at the Snowflake Comedy Club and another evening of “engaged humour,” declined comment on the situation.The bar is operated by the UQAM branch of the Public Interest Research Group, which focuses on environmental and social issues. In its Facebook statement, the co-operative says its mission is to be “a safe space, free of relationships of oppression.” It describes cultural appropriation as a form of violence.“We will not tolerate any discrimination or harassment within our spaces,” it says. It defines cultural appropriation as when “someone from a dominant culture appropriates symbols, clothing or hairstyles that come from historically dominated cultures.”It adds that wearing dreadlocks is “a privilege” for a white person, whereas a black person with the same hair “is going to find himself refused access to job opportunities or spaces (apartments, schools, parties, sports competitions, etc.)”Even if the person wearing dreadlocks is not racist himself, the group adds, the chosen hairstyle “conveys racism.” It calls cultural appropriation “a form of passive oppression, a privilege to be deconstructed and in particular a manifestation of ordinary racism.”Last summer, American actor Zac Efron was accused of cultural appropriation after posting a photo of himself with dreadlocks on social media along with the caption, “just for fun.” Canadian singer Justin Bieber faced similar criticism in 2016 when he posted photos of himself with dreadlocked blond hair.Greg Robinson, a UQAM professor specializing in black history, compared the wearing of dreadlocks by whites to the widely denounced practice of actors wearing blackface to portray characters of colour.“What I mean is that it is whites who dress up as blacks to make fun of them,” he said, adding that even when the intention is not mockery but embracing another culture, one has to be careful.“It’s like the N-word,” Robinson said. “Blacks can use it among themselves, but if someone from outside uses it, even if he wants to be like blacks, among blacks, there is still an aspect that remains rooted in history.”The Coop les Recoltes did not respond to an interview request.Ugo Giguere, The Canadian Press
