Podcast in Kashmir nurtures young talent through creativity

A Kashmir-based podcast offers a platform to youngsters to connect with the locals of the Valley. The podcast 'Mashq Talks' empowers young talent to harness creativity. The 'Mashq Talks' podcast series is an episodic series of digital audio or video files. Its aim is to connect young Kashmiris to the world through digital media. Founder Umar Nisar said, "I tried to offer Kashmir, its own 'Ted Talks' and I started an initiative and named it 'Mashq Talks'. It is as same as 'Ted Talks'. We started a podcast through which we targeted 100 Kashmiri influencers and featured them. Kashmir has abundance of talent but at the same time, they lack platform." A writer Sulah Shabir said, "Their intention is to bring youth from the Valley in front. If I talk about myself, I have been writing for last 6 years but I am in limelight for last 6 months. This happened because we don't know how to reach to the audience through our talent. We have lots of talent but no exposure and this is our biggest drawback as our social and political situation are not well. This podcast is a big initiative."

‘Don’t see them as Hindu & Muslim,’ says Allahabad HC; blow to Love Jihad law?

As some BJP ruled states including Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh have been mulling introduction of a law against ‘Love Jihad’, the Allahabad High Court has cancelled a case against a Muslim man Salamat by the parents of his wife, who converted from Hinduism to Islam last year to marry him. ‘We do not see Priyanka Kharwar & Salamat as Hindu and Muslim, rather as two grown-up individuals who out of their own free will and choice are living together peacefully and happily over a year. An individual on attaining majority is statutorily conferred a right to choose a partner, which if denied would not only affect his/her human right but also right to life & personal liberty, guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution,’ The High Court bench said. So how could this verdict be a setback to the BJP ruled states planning a Love Jihad law? Watch this video to find out.
