Karnataka will be facing Assembly elections in March-April next year.

The American President Donald Trump’s charge that Iran supports terrorism does not square up with the reality.

I remember when Moulana Abdul Kareem Parikh Sab (late) in his inaugural speech of Islamic Voice, English monthly in January 1987 (30 years ago) shared an incident. He said that when he was in Surat, one day early morning a lady vegetable vendor carrying vegetables had in her vegetable basket a Gujarati news paper stuck […]
