New Delhi. Citizenship Amendment Act ( CAA ) and Delhi violence (Delhi Riots) on behalf of some neighboring countries Foreign Minister S Jaishankar (EAM S Jaishankar) has given a befitting reply on India's criticism .
The Foreign Minister said that this is the time when real and true friends of India are being tested. He said that now the real countries of India are being identified.
This statement of the Foreign Minister came at a time when some leaders of Iran and America recently criticized India.

In fact, at the Global Business Summit, when the Foreign Minister asked Jaishankar whether India was losing friends one by one?
Answering this, he said that perhaps real friends of India are now being identified.
Let me tell you that a person in question named Iran and the leaders of the US opposition party and asked why these friendly countries are angry with India.
EAM Subrahmanyam Jaishankar on if India has not been able to explain position on CAA or has been misunderstood: There are sections of the world outside the media. I engage Govts. I was in Brussels, I had 27 Foreign ministers in a room to whom I was talking … (1/2) pic.twitter.com/od 686 ntkNH

Foreign Minister S Jaishankar also spoke openly on the Citizenship Amendment Act in the program. He said that everyone has a different view on citizenship.
Is there any country that says that they welcome every person in the world. Let me tell you that Iran's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Khamnai has given an anti-India statement about the violence in Delhi.
He said that the massacre of Muslims in India has hurt the hearts of Muslims around the world. Along with this, he had also asked the Government of India to ban radical Hindus and their parties.
EAM: Point we make on CAA is that It can't be anybody's case that a Govt & Parliament does not have the right to set terms of citizenship. We have tried to reduce the large number of stateless people we have in this country. Everybody when they look at citizenship has a context (2/2) https://t.co/l0N6w 186 U1

Not only this, the supreme leader of Iran even said that if this continues, then India should not be isolated in the group of Islamic countries.
Let me tell you that Iran has been an old friend country of India. But after the close relations of India with the US, especially after the oil embargo from Iran, there has been a loudness in its tone.
While Iran has been openly opposed to India after the recent visit of US President Donald Trump to India.

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has agreed to hear a petition that has sought immediate and effective measures to be implemented against domestic violence and child abuse amidst COVID-19 lockdown.
The petition brings the attention of the court to the incidents of domestic violence and child abuse not only in India but countries such as Australia, the UK, the USA etc.
Talking about the recent reports that suggest that countries are witnessing a surge in domestic violence cases since the COVID-19 outbreak and as a result of lockdowns, petitions also mentions that helpline numbers across India have received about 92,000 related calls in initial 11 days of lockdown.
A petition has been moved before the Delhi High Court by All India Council of Human Rights, Liberties & Social Justice (AICHLS) – an NGO represented by advocates Ms. Mithu Jain, Mr. Arjun Syal, and Ms. Vidisha Kumar.
This petition seeks urgent intervention of the Hon’ble Court to protect women and children across the country who are suffering from domestic abuse and continue to suffer silently. Violence against women and children tends to increase during every type of emergency, including epidemics.
It is the petitioner’s plea that due to the lockdown, regular channels of family, friends, colleagues, pandemic and the subsequent lockdown to contain it, the health impacts of this violence particularly, intimate partner/domestic violence, on women/children are significant.
Taking note of the severity of domestic violence across the globe since COVID-19 lockdowns, The United Nations Secretary-General – António Guterres has called upon nations to consider the safety of women in view of the worldwide surge in domestic violence in this pandemic on a war footing and as a priority in his recent Tweet.
He stated, “I urge all governments to put women’s safety first as they respond to the pandemic.”
The World Health Organisation (WHO), taking into account the increase in the domestic violence cases in European countries and in the USA, has issued guidelines to several health sectors/systems all over the world, interalia, indicating steps which can be taken for helping violence against women who are stuck in their homes due to the Lockdowns all over the country/cities at this time of the pandemic COVID-19.
This petition urges the Hon’ble Court to take cognizance of and devise methods to help and protect these trapped victims, who are locked down with their abusers. The request to list the Petition for an urgent hearing has been allowed by the Delhi High Court.
