The death toll in Peshawar blast that rocked the Pakistani city yesterday has reached over 70. More than 150 have been reported to be injured..or grievously wounded in this suicide bomb blast that apparently targeted policemen praying in a mosque within the tightly guarded police headquarters area. Initially..no outfit claimed the responsibility for this but later….a brother of a slain commander of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan… Umar Khalid Khurasani… took responsibility . He termed it as an act of revenge for his brother who was killed in August last year in Afghanistan. Yesterday’s attack is so far the biggest one carried out by the TTP whose main targets...in the last few years have mostly been security personnel installations. In this video…we take a look at the emergence...rise of this outlawed outfit, TTP i.e Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan…along with discussing how Pakistan has become a victim of its own policies of harbouring terrorist organisations in its backyard. But before that, don’t forget to like, share and subscribe to Oneindia.

Women Across Iran , Defy Regime by Refusing , to Wear Hijabs.
NPR reports that while the hijab remains
the official law in Iran, many women around
the country are removing them in protest.
The movement comes in the wake of
anti-government protests following the
killing of Mahsa Amini while in police custody.
The 22-year-old Kurdish woman
had been arrested for
improperly wearing her hijab.
NPR reports that the government
responded to the protests
with a brutal crackdown.
According to rights groups,
hundreds of people were killed, while
thousands of others were arrested.
Previously, Iran's hijab law was enforced
by the government's morality police.
NPR reports that there appears
to be a pause in the government's typical
enforcement approach since last fall.
I think the government really is putting
itself at risk if it chooses to reinforce
the hijab law in a very draconian way, Sanam Vakil, deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa program at Chatham House, via NPR.
According to Sanam Vakil, deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa program at Chatham House, the Iranian political establishment is weighing how to enforce hijab laws.
There are conservatives that have tried to
suggest that reform or outreach and bridge
building to protesters is important, Sanam Vakil, deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa program at Chatham House, via NPR.
But you also have hardline conservatives
who see compromise as an avenue that
will invite further protests and challenge, Sanam Vakil, deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa program at Chatham House, via NPR
