Observer launches Christmas Appeal

This year’s Christmas Appeal by The Observer newspaper is on behalf of overseas aid charity Merlin. Although the two column appeal in today’s paper gives extensive background to Merlin’s work in the Congo, there is no suggestion that you can donate online, and no mention of the new tax-efficient Gift Aid benefits. Indeed, the newspaper’s “how to give” section is potentially misleading in that it appears to suggest donors should send a credit card donation via e-mail. “Alternatively, you can make a credit card donation by calling 020 7378 4845 or by e-mail to [email protected]” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  22 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Observer launches Christmas Appeal About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The Register of Approved Charities for Northern Ireland, established by PCI Consulting, claims to enable charities that they are well run and accountable, therefore assisting them in attracting funding and assisting potential donors to make informed decisions when giving to charities.There is currently no official register of charities for Northern Ireland, although it is anticipated that the Department for Social Development will announce just such a statutory register later this month, following its consultations on the 2005 Review of Charities Administration and Legislation in Northern Ireland. Business in the Community, the Centre for Competitiveness and CAN are supportive of the need for a charities register, which they believe should be administered by Government. The organisations also agree that a robust system of approval is required and furthermore, accreditation for the third sector would be beneficial, but they believe this process should be managed by the third sector and should be self-regulating. Advertisement A joint statement from Business in the Community, the Centre for Competitiveness and CAN reads We are not critical of PCI Consulting in taking the initiative to develop an approval mechanism in the absence to date of any statutory process, however PCI Consulting does not have approval to use our logos in association with the Register of Approved Charities, nor are we involved in any way in this initiative. We would indeed support the need for a registration, approval and accreditation process applicable across the third sector, but we believe this process should be led by Government working in partnership with the sector to help increase accountability, professionalise the sector and provide a valuable screening mechanism for donors which allows them to be confident their donations are being well managed and administered. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

‘Justice for Dontay Ivy!’

first_imgAlbany, N.Y. — More than 100 protesters packed the rotunda of the City Hall in Albany, N.Y., on Jan. 25 to demand justice for Dontay Ivy. Ivy, a 39-year-old Black man who suffered from mental illness, was taking his regular nighttime walk last April 2 when he was Tasered, clubbed and tackled by several Albany cops. Ivy suffered a heart attack shortly after the assault and died.The cops admitted they had no reason to stop Ivy, yet none was charged with any crime for his death. His killing has sparked outrage from the African-American community and its supporters. Protesters have called for the firing of Albany Police Chief Brendan Cox, as well as the arrest and prosecution of the cops responsible for Ivy’s death.Defying a large police presence, the City Hall demonstration, organized by the Black Lives Matter chapter of upstate New York, interrupted Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan’s “State of the City” address. Protesters hung banners from the ceiling behind the podium, one reading “Justice for Dontay” and the other “State of Denial.”For 20 minutes, the crowd prevented Sheehan from speaking, chanting “No justice, no peace!” and “Fire those cops!” Then the crowd filed out, singing “I can’t breathe,” a ballad inspired by the killing of Eric Garner at the hands of New York City police. (timesunion.com, Jan. 26) They held their own “State of the City” rally outside on the City Hall steps, where they proclaimed that Albany is a place where a Black man is “guilty until proven innocent.”“What I would like to hear is an acknowledgment that this is what happens and that we’re not making this stuff up,” said Sean Desiree, cofounder of the newly announced upstate Black Lives Matter chapter.

‘Animal Sacrifice An Essential Religious Practice’: Plea In SC Against Kerala HC Judgment Upholding Law Prohibiting Animals and Birds Sacrifices

The appeal has been filed by one PE Gopalakrishnan, a Shakthi worshipper, claiming that animal sacrifice is an integral part of his religious practice and as such the High Court order impinges upon his fundamental right under Article 25(1) of the Constitution. Vide order dated June 16, 2020, the Kerala High Court dismissed a challenge to the impugned Act, in limine. A bench comprised by Chief Justice S. Manikumar and Justice Shaji P. Chaly observed that there are no materials on record to substantiate which community of the religion is required under the Hindu or any other religion, to kill an animal, for propitiating, if not personal consumption, in the manner required in the religion. The Petitioner herein through Advocate A. Karthik has stated that the order of dismissal was passed without considering the contentions raised by him in his application for impleadment. The grounds raised by the Petitioner include: 1) Unreasonably interferes with the rights of the Petitioners under Articles 25 and 26 of the Constitution of India The Petitioner has contended that animal sacrifice is an integral part of Shakthi worship and since he is unable to make an offering to the deity, there is a reasonable apprehension of facing the “wrath of Devi”. In support of his arguments, the Petitioner has placed several doctrinal materials on record, entailing a detailed list of scriptural mandate indicating the essentiality and inalterability of the practice of animal sacrifice to his religious customs and traditions. 2) Violative of Article 14 of the Constitution of India The Petitioner has contended that the Act criminalizes animal sacrifice to the exclusion of identical practices by other religious communities, without the same being founded on any intelligible differentia. “If the object of the law were to ensure preservation and protection of animals, it would demand its uniform application across all religious communities,” he has submitted. It is further argued that mental condition alone i.e killing or maiming of any animal for propitiating any deity alone is the core consideration under the Act and the converse, if the act is not for propitiating any deity, but for personal consumption even in temple premises, then it is not forbidden. “The impugned Act criminalizes the intent behind the animal sacrifice, and not animal sacrifice per se. If the sacrifice is not for propitiating any deity but for personal consumption even in the precincts of temple, it is not forbidden. This arbitrary classification is violative of Article 14 of the Constitution of India,” the plea states. 3) Impugned Act is repugnant to The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960 (Central Legislation) and therefore, void in view of Article 254 of the Constitution of India The Petitioner has pointed out that while the Central legislation grants an exemption to the killing of animals for religious purposes, the impugned Act selectively criminalizes the same, thus negating the provision of the former. “It resorts to a distinction pertaining to the terminologies used, the former employing the term ‘killing’, and the latter employing the term ‘sacrifice’. This is done in ignorance of Section 2(b) of the State Act which defines ‘sacrifice’ to include within its ambit killing, and maiming,” the plea states.The petition has been drawn by Advocates Ananthu Bahuleyan, Sarveshwar Kannan and Anushka Paridkar.

Three Sitting Members Of NCLAT Move Supreme Court Challenging Disparaging Remarks Made Against Them By Five-Judge Bench

The order of the five-member Bench headed by Chairperson Justice Bansi Lal Bhat was passed in a case which was referred by a three-judge Bench comprising of the petitioners. The plea has been filed by Advocate Amit Sharma on behalf of Justice (Retd) Jarat Kumar Jain, Bavinder Singh and Vijai Pratap Singh and has urged the Court to expunge the unsavoury and disparaging remarks made against them. According to them the Larger bench crossed both limits of its jurisdiction and has made unsavory and most disparaging comments which tend to be personal in nature against the referral bench. The impugned statements in the order of the five-judge Bench which have been challenged before the Apex Court state that it was a matter of judicial discipline for the referral bench to follow the judgment of the 5 member bench in V Padmakumar’s case as a binding precedent and not question the correctness of the judgment by adopting cut and paste methodology in branding the five member bench judgment in V Padmakumar’s case as so very incorrect divorced of the context. The order also said that the stand taken by the three-judge Bench was a misadventure and the reference made was incompetent.The plea states that the Three-judge Bench, while deciding the case, had opined that the judgment in V. Padmakumar passed by a five-Members Bench was in direct conflict with the several judgments of the Supreme Court and also the law laid down by High Court in several cases. Considering this apparent conflict, the Three members Bench was persuaded to not follow the law laid down by that judgment. The Bench also noted that while it was bound to follow the law laid down by the Five Member Bench o f the Tribunal, they considered it appropriate to refer it to a larger Bench in wake of the doubt regarding correctness of the Five Members Bench. In support of their decision, they have also cited judgment of the Supreme Court in the case of Central Board of Dawoodi Bohra Community vs State of Maharashtra (2005), incompliance of which the decided to refer the matter. The plea has stated that the Five Members Bench heard the case referred and decided it through their order dates 22nd December 2020. However, they took the view that the reference was not maintainable, and a matter of judicial indiscipline for the referral Bench to have questioned the correctness of judgment passed by a Five Member Bench of the NCLAT. The Bench has stated that such judicial indiscipline creates uncertainty and impairs public faith in Rule of La w, and crossing of red lines by disregarding the binding precedent results in making the legal proposition uncertain.” It is not open to the referral Bench to appreciate the judgment rendered by the earlier Bench as if sitting in appeal to hold that the view is erroneous. Escaping of attention of the earlier Bench as regards a binding judicial precedent or a patent error is of relevance but not evaluation of earlier judgment as if sitting in appeal. We are sad to note that the Referral Bench has overlooked all legal considerations. Such misadventures weaken the authority of law, dignity of institution as also shake people’s faith in the rule of law.” – the Five Member Bench had stated. According to the petitioners, while the Larger Bench crossed the limits of its jurisdiction while making such unsavory remarks against the referral Bench, it did not even dwell on the issue referred to it regarding the apparent conflict between law laid down by NCLAT and that laid down by the Supreme Court and High Court.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
