New Delhi, Nov 5: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has demanded a report from the Indian High Commission in Kenya regarding Indian boy, who was shot dead in Nairobi.

“Suchitra (Suchitra Durai, India’s High Commissioner to Kenya) – Please send me a report on this,” Sushma Swaraj tweeted on Saturday night following a request by one Netra Parikh.

In her message on Twitter, Parikh asserted  that the boy named Bunty Shah of Bombil Industries was shot dead at his residence and sought support for the family.

Around 80,000 people of Indian origin lives in Kenya.

In an another tweet, Sushma Swaraj asked the Indian High Commissioner to South Africa Ruchira Kamboj to extend help after an Indian national died of natural causes while on a tour in that country.

Swaraj was responding to a request by Shweta Kapur, who tweeted: “Because it is the weekend and a foreign land, nobody knows who to turn to for help. Can the MEA help? It is a nightmare for a member of the general public to experience a loss like this, and the helplessness thereafter.”

Sushma Swaraj also recommended Kapur to contact Kamboj.

Earlier on Saturday, the External Affairs Minister sought a report from the Indian Embassy in the US following reports of an attack on a Sikh schoolboy by a classmate in Washington.

The victim’s family said it was a case of hate crime.

Kangana Ranaut

Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut on Friday reacted to legal notices piling up against her.

“Film mafia filed many cases on me, last night Javed Akhtar filed one more, Maharashtra government filing one case every hour now congress in Punjab is also joined the gang…. Lagta hai mujhe mahan banake he dum lenge (I think they will take a break only after making me great.) Thank you,” Kangana Ranaut tweeted from her verified account on Friday reacting to a news piece talking about the legal notice.

Earlier on Friday, the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee sent a legal notice to Kangana, seeking an “unconditional apology” for her “derogatory” tweets against farmers and activists involved in the farmers protest against the Centre’s three Farm Laws, the committee’s president.

“We have sent a legal notice to Kangana Ranaut for her derogatory tweet calling the aged mother of a farmer as a woman available for Rs 100. Her tweets portray farmers protest as anti-national. We demand an unconditional apology from her for her insensitive remarks on farmers protest,” Manjinder Singh Sirsa, President of DSGMC tweeted.

The notice comes in the wake of a tweet from the actress alleging that the ‘Shaheen Bagh dadi’ also joined the farmers’ agitation over the new agri laws at various border points of the National Capital Region.

She had retweeted the post with pictures of two elderly women, including Bilkis Bano, and wrote that the “same Dadi” who featured in Time Magazine was “available in 100 rupees”.

On Thursday a petition had been filed in Bombay High Court against Kangana. The petitioner seeks the suspension of the verified Twitter account of the actress for allegedly spreading hatred and disharmony.

Dalai Lama

Dharamsala, Dec 4 : Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, on Friday congratulated Ranjitsinh Disale, a primary school teacher in Maharashtra, on winning this year’s Global Teacher Prize, saying educating the young children, especially the poor, is perhaps the best way to help them as individuals.

“I would like to congratulate you,” His Holiness wrote, “on being named the world’s most exceptional teacher and to express my admiration for your generosity in sharing half the prize money with runners-up in the competition”.

“Educating young children, especially from poor and needy backgrounds is perhaps the best way to help them as individuals, and actively contributes to creating a better world.

“Your work to ensure that disadvantaged girls go to school, as well as your efforts to prepare study materials for them in their own language, the online science lessons you offer pupils in 83 countries and your project building connections between young people in conflict zones are all vivid examples of compassion in action.

“When you say, ‘Together we can make a difference — we can make this world a better place’, you are absolutely right. I am sure your exemplary service will encourage other brothers and sisters to follow in your footsteps.”

The spiritual leader ended his letter with an offering of prayers and good wishes.

The 31-year-old Ranjitsingh Disale declared that he will split half of the prize money of $1 million with his top 10 fellow finalists.
