Pakistan to expel Indian ambassador, Kashmir dispute escalates

This was the scene in Pakistan's parliament on Wednesday (August 7).

The country has said it will expel the Indian ambassador and suspend trade.

As their dispute over Kashmir continues to escalate.

Earlier this week India stripped its side of the contested region of special status, a system that gave it a degree of autonomy.

And both Pakistan and neighbor China have voiced anger over India's removal of the constitutional provision.

That had allowed the country's only Muslim-majority state to make its own laws.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan met with his top generals - also on Wednesday.

It was only months ago that the two nuclear-armed countries last came to blows over the region, including mortar fire and military jets.

And they've fought two wars over this place.

India said the special status had hindered Kashmir's development.

And it wanted to fully integrate the region with the rest of the country.

Meanwhile, Indian security forces have been battling to control Kashmiri protests.

It's coincided with a clampdown on digital communications in the area that started on Sunday.

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi vacates Delhi bungalow after Centre’s order

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra vacated her official Lodhi Estate bungalow on Thursday. Priyanka handed over the possession to CPWD on Thursday. An official statement issued by the Congress said Priyanka Gandhi handed over the possession of her 35, Lodhi Estate bungalow, "previously allotted to her on security grounds", to the CPWD. "She will be residing in a temporary accommodation until a more permanent accommodation in Delhi rented by her is ready for use," an official communication from the Congress party said. Earlier in the day, a team of central PWD officials visited her house and took the keys of the Lodhi Estate bungalow. Centre had cancelled Priyanka’s New Delhi accommodation at Lodhi Estate. The Ministry of Urban Development issued a notice to Priyanka Gandhi on July 1, asking her to vacate the Lodhi Estate bungalow before August 1, as she was no longer eligible for it after her security cover was downgraded last year. Priyanka had earlier this month cleared her pending dues. The said house has since been allotted to BJP's media department in-charge and Rajya Sabha MP Anil Baluni. Priyanka was allotted the 35, Lodhi Estate bungalow in New Delhi in 1997.

For generations, this Muslim family in Ayodhya making 'Khadaus' for Hindu saints

A Muslim family-based in Ayodhya has been making 'Khadaus' (wooden footwear) for Hindu saints for several generations, which is also their primary source of income. Mohd. Azam said he is the fifth generation in his family who has carried forward the tradition. "I make Khadaus, which are used by Hindu saints, for a living. These are also worshipped by many people. I am the fifth generation in my family who is making this, and carrying forward the tradition which was started by my ancestors," he told. Khadau possesses a great significance in the Hindu religion, in particular. In the epic mythology Ramayana, Bharat, Lord Ram's younger brother, placed 'Khadaus' of Rama on the throne as a symbol of the latter's authority over the kingdom. It is thus an object of worship for many, even today.
