Enter Your Email Address Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) has had a tumultuous few years and today things got a whole lot worse. On a day that the financial markets saw the FTSE 100 fall over 8%, Lloyds could face an investigation by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office. Along with auditor KPMG, Lloyds has been accused of pushing property firm Angel Group into administration by charging exorbitant advisory fees, according to an article in the Telegraph.Share price slideToday the Lloyds share price was down almost 14% on opening. It has a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 6, forecast earnings per share growth of 55%, and its dividend yield is almost 8%. All very attractive fundamentals, which make it look cheap. However, I’m more worried about how much room the Lloyds share price has to fall further. Can it sustain months of suppressed interest rates and a potential recession?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Being a household name and historically established in British banking you’d think it would be one of these institutions that’s too big to fail, but we should never become complacent.Back in 2008, that’s how most people viewed Lehman Brothers, which subsequently went bust, leaving the financial markets in disarray. This had a knock-on effect in the UK, leading to Lloyds Bank having to rescue HBOS and, in turn, the government having to rescue Lloyds.As much as I hope Lloyds will survive to see happier times ahead, I don’t like the risk and uncertainty surrounding this share. I’ll be avoiding.Oil price crashThe price of oil has seen an unprecedented slide today and even the biggest companies weren’t immune to its effects. BP (LSE: BP) saw its share price fall 21%. BP has a P/E of 9 and its dividend yield is over 8%.I like BP and think it has great potential to succeed in renewables and oil and gas, but I’m not sure this is the right time to be buying oil stocks.Russia, the US, and Saudi Arabia are slipping into an all-out war on crude oil production and where it will end is anyone’s guess. Combining this with the impact of the coronavirus outbreak means the oil industry is in a weak and uncertain place.I don’t think the oil industry is about to go bust. The world is far too reliant on energy, and in many emerging countries demand is increasing. But, there’s a glut of oil in storage, so these countries are prepared to deal with a price crash that may only see the strongest survive.Buy and holdIn my opinion, the strongest oil players in the UK financial markets are BP and Royal Dutch Shell, so if I was buying shares in any oil stocks, it would be these two. My only concern is that the oil price may have further to fall. I don’t see any of these countries bowing down easily.These are precarious times we are living in and uncertainty is rife. Billionaire investor Warren Buffett once said that “investing is simple, but it’s not easy”. Uncertainty is the reason why.In an interview this week Buffett confirmed he will not be selling stocks in response to the coronavirus panic but will instead hold. He may even buy bargain shares in companies with a strong track record, likely to go the distance. Lloyds share price vs BP share price! Is now a good time to buy? Image source: Getty Images.

Thought it might be a nice thing to include in this Sunday’s Sermon, given Bishop Sisk’s respectful trip to Canterbury to commemorate the disaster., In fact, it might be nice to share that fact with him ? Best, as always, Mart Hulswit Rector Collierville, TN Submit an Event Listing The Titanic sets out on its fatal voyage in April 1912.[Episcopal News Service] When people mark the 100th anniversary April 15 of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, Anglicans and Episcopalians will be among them.Memorial services are planned on both sides of the Atlantic to commemorate the loss of the 1,514 people who died when the ship sank nearly five days after it left Southampton, England on its maiden crossing bound for New York. Seven hundred and ten people survived after the ship struck an iceberg.In Southampton, Episcopal Diocese of New York Bishop Mark S. Sisk will be a guest of Southampton Bishop Suffragan Jonathan H. Frost at events marking the anniversary. Sisk will preach at the 100th anniversary commemorative service at Southampton’s St. Mary’s Church at 2 p.m. local time on April 15.On Long Island, New York, at St. Ann’s Episcopal Church in Sayville the 10 a.m. Eucharist will be dedicated to “in memory of Edith Corse Evans and those aboard the RMS Titanic who perished with her on April 15, 1912,” according to the parish’s website.Evans and her sister, Lena Cadwalader Evans, often spent summers with their grandfather, Israel Corse Jr., in West Sayville, according to the parish’s April newsletter. The family attended St. Ann’s during their stay. Corse donated the funds with which to build the rectory. Evans had booked first-class passage on the great new liner, RMS Titanic for a quick trip home from a family funeral. She gave her place on the last lifeboat to her cousin, who had children waiting at home, according to the newsletter.A reception in the parish hall will feature an exhibit of photographs, books and assorted items about the disaster, as well as speakers from the Titanic Society, St. Ann’s Historical Society and the Long Island Wireless Historical Society. Folk music written and performed after the tragedy will also be featured. Refreshments will include some foods which were on the ship’s menu on April 14, 1912.In Denver, Colorado, the St. Martin’s Chamber Choir will present three concerts titled “Nearer my God to Thee,” including performances on April 14 and 15 at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. The concerts will include Edwardian-era seafaring favorites, as well as works known to have been performed during the voyage, according to the choir’s website. “Nearer my God to Thee” is said to be the last song played by the ship’s musiciansThis weekend’s services will reflect the many memorial events and funerals that took place in the days and weeks after the sinking. For instance, on April 29, 1912 Grace Episcopal Church, Orange, New Jersey, held a service for parishioner W. Anderson Walker, 47, an Englishman who lived in nearby East Orange.And on the same day, Grace Episcopal Church in Elizabeth, New Jersey, held an evening memorial service for Peter R. Renouf, Lawrence Garvey and Clifford and Ernest Jefferys. Renouf and Garvey were communicants of the parish and the Jefferys (ages 22 and 24, respectively) were brothers of Renouf’s wife, Lillian. They were both from Guernsey on Britain’s Channel Islands and were second-class passengers. Renouf, 33, was a carpenter in Elizabeth, and he and his wife were also second-class passengers.Lillian, 31, had been rescued from the Titanic and attended the service, according to a newspaper article. It is said that 90 percent of the men in second class died due to a “women and children first” protocol that left them without seats in the lifeboats.On May 4, 1912, a funeral service was held at Episcopal Church of the Messiah in Rhinebeck, New York, for John Jacob Astor, 47, the financier and real-estate developer who died in the sinking. His wife, Madeleine, 18, survived. Astor had been warden of the Rhinebeck church for sixteen years.In New York, the mission of the Episcopal Church-affiliated Seamens Church Institute intersected with the loss of the Titanic. April 16, 1912 had been set for the laying of the cornerstone for a new SCI building on land at Coenties Slip in lower Manhattan, according to SCI Archivist Johnathan Thayer.The ceremony proceeded as planned, with speakers making last minute edits to their speeches to address the tragedy, Thayer wrote recently. SCI took up a collection to donate to the victims’ families and dedicated two of the new building’s bedrooms in honor of the Titanic’s crew.On April 18, the PMS Carpathia reached New York City’s Pier 54 with the Titanic’s survivors, including more than 200 crew members. The American Seamen’s Friend Society hosted the crew, and SCI staff assisted in the distribution of clothing and toiletries to replace the items lost in the wreck, Thayer said. Men received a full suit of clothes, boots and a cap, as well as a razor and comb, while the 20 surviving stewardesses received complete outfits. SCI helped provide refreshments and led a simple church service to mourn the friends and co-workers who did not make it back to shore.One year to the day after the Titanic’s sinking, SCI dedicated the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse on the roof of its completed 12-story headquarters at 25 South Street. The Lighthouse remained until 1968, when SCI moved its headquarters to 15 State Street and the old building was demolished. SCI donated the lighthouse to the South Street Seaport Museum, which installed it on the corner of Fulton and Water streets. Today, SCI is headquartered in the Port of Newark.An online exhibit of SCI materials related to the Titanic’s sinking is here.It is said that the Rev. Thomas Roussel Davids Byles, an Anglican priest turned Roman Catholic, became a hero after the Titanic struck an iceberg off Newfoundland. According to the Canadian Anglican Journal, his sermon during mass for second-place passengers hours before the sinking concerned the need to have a “lifeboat in the shape of religious consolation at hand in case of spiritual shipwreck.”After the collision, Byles, 42, was seen helping third-class passengers up the stairs and into the boats, hearing confessions, granting absolutions, encouraging those being lowered down to the dark Atlantic and praying with the doomed. He was allegedly twice offered a seat in a lifeboat, but he refused and went down with the ship.Byles was on his way to New York to officiate at the wedding of his younger brother, William.

June 27, 2015 at 5:46 pm I preached about “crazy Christians” last Sunday, and hoped and prayed with all my heart that Bishop Curry would be our new PB! What great news!! The Rev. James Abernathey says: Presiding Bishop-elect Michael Curry, bishop of the Diocese of North Carolina, speaks to a packed House of Deputies hall after deputies confirmed his election as the 27th presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church. Curry’s family and others joined him on the dais. Photo: Cynthia L. Black/For ENSEditor’s note: This story was updated at 5:55 p.m. MDT to note historic nature of first-ballot election. [Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City, Utah] The Episcopal Church’s General Convention made history June 27 when it chose Diocese of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry to be its 27th presiding bishop.Curry, 62, was elected by the House of Bishops from a slate of four nominees on the first ballot. He received 121 votes of a total 174 cast. Diocese of Southwest Florida Bishop Dabney Smith received 21, Diocese of Southern Ohio Bishop Thomas Breidenthal, 19, and Diocese of Connecticut Bishop Ian Douglas, 13. The number of votes needed for election was 89.Curry’s election was confirmed an hour later by the House of Deputies, as outlined in the church’s canons, by a vote of 800 to 12.He will serve a nine-year term that officially begins Nov. 1. On that date, Curry will succeed current Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and he will become the first person of color to hold that position.A liturgy marking the beginning of Curry’s ministry as presiding bishop and primate will be celebrated Nov. 1, All Saints Day at Washington National Cathedral.The House of Deputies, which was filled with visitors and bishops awaiting Curry, erupted into sustained applause when Jefferts Schori and Curry entered at about 2:30 p.m. His entrance came about 30 minutes after the House of Deputies confirmed his election. Deputies stood on their chairs, holding aloft their phones, tablets and cameras to capture the historic moment.“Oh, God love ya,” Curry said when he got to the microphone on the dais. “I know you haven’t had lunch so, no sermons now.”The deputies worked past their scheduled 1 p.m. recess to vote on Curry’s election and hear him speak.“It really is a blessing and privilege to serve our church and to serve our Lord in this way,” he said. “I treasure this church, this house, the House of Bishops, all of us. We are God’s children.”Curry said The Episcopal Church is “the church where I learned about Jesus.”“This is a good and wonderful church and we are good and wonderful people and I thank God to be one of the baptized among you,” Curry said, adding, “My heart is really full.”“We’ve got a society where there are challenges before us and there are crises all around us. And the church has challenges before it,” he said. “We got a God and there really is a Jesus, and we are part of the Jesus Movement. Nothing can stop the movement of God’s love in this world”As Curry left the dais, people in the house sang the Doxology.Curry has been North Carolina’s 11th diocesan bishop since he was ordained and consecrated on June 17, 2000. He was the rector of St. James’ Episcopal Church, Baltimore, Maryland, when he was elected to the see on Feb. 11, 2000. He is also the current chair of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors.This makes the second time in a row that the General Convention made history with its election of a presiding bishop. In 2006, Jefferts Schori became the first woman ever elected presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church. She was also the first female among the primates, or ordained leaders, of the Anglican Communion’s 38 provinces, a distinction she still holds.Curry’s election also made history by being the first time a presiding bishop was chosen on the first ballot.Echoing an old spiritual, Curry said during a video interview after his nomination was announced on May 1 that “our hand must be on the Gospel plow.”“We are followers of Jesus – Jesus of Nazareth – and the truth is we’ve got a message to proclaim, a life to live and something to share and offer the world,” he said. “There’s a lot of suffering in this world. There’s a lot of heartache, there’s a lot of nightmare. We are people who believe that God has a dream and a vision for this world, and that Jesus has shown us how to follow him in the direction of that and how to help this world live into God’s dream and vision for us now.“Our work is actually the work of participating in the Jesus movement, which seeks to realize God’s dream and seeks to accomplish God’s mission in this world,” Curry said.The church must help form disciples who will live like Jesus, Curry said. Such formation must become a priority so that the church is not just creating members, but disciples of Jesus “who actually live out and struggle to live out the teachings of Jesus in their lives, and make a tangible difference” in the world. If such churchwide formation combined with Episcopalians’ individual commitments to imitate Jesus, “we would transform this world,” Curry said.“After formation, there’s evangelism and I know sometimes folks are afraid of that word, but I’m not talking about evangelism like other folk do it,” he said. “I am talking about the kind of evangelism that is as much listening as it is sharing.” Being present with another person and listening to that person is a “transforming possibility” of invitation and welcome.Episcopalians must also be willing to “witness in the social sphere, witness in the public sphere, through personal service that helps somebody along the way … prophesying deliverance … [and] being a voice for those who have no voice,” Curry said.To do this, Episcopalians need to partner with Anglicans around the world along with people of other faith traditions, according to Curry.And “we need to create organizational structures that serve the mission, that help the institution and the church become a vessel of the Jesus movement,” he concluded.The election processThe names of all four bishops were formally submitted to the General Convention by the Joint Nominating Committee for the Election of the Presiding Bishop during a joint session on June 26, the day before the election. There were no additional nominees from the floor during that session.Anyone intending to make such a nomination had to inform the nominating committee of that intention by May 12 so that additional nominees could undergo the same background screening process that the committee completed for all of its nominees. The committee announced on May 12 that no additional bishops were nominated.The four nominees spoke to convention participants during a three-hour session on June 24, the afternoon before the General Convention formally convened.Bishops gathered at the Convention Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. on June 27 in the Salt Palace Convention Center. Following that, the bishops with seat, voice and vote traveled to St. Mark’s Cathedral, where the election session was closed and took place in the context of prayer and reflection.After Curry was elected but before his name was announced, Jefferts Schori sent a delegation to House of Deputies President the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings informing her of the result. Jennings referred Curry’s name to the House of Deputies legislative committee on the Confirmation of the Presiding Bishop without announcing the news to the full House. The legislative committee was charged with recommending to the House of Deputies whether to confirm the election or not confirm. The deputies heard the recommendation at 1:48 p.m. local time, and began to debate the confirmation request.The House of Bishops remained in session at the cathedral until a delegation of deputies, appointed by Jennings notified the House of Bishops of the action taken. No communication was permitted from the House of Bishops during the election and until confirmation was received.Shortly after receiving word of the confirmation of his election, Curry came to the House of Deputies.Presiding Bishop-elect Curry will preach at the convention’s closing Eucharist on July 3, and Jefferts Schori will preside.The roles of the presiding bishopThe presiding bishop is primate and chief pastor of the church, chair of the Executive Council, and president of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society. The canonical outline of the presiding bishop’s election and term can be found in Title I Section 2 of the church’s Canons.(The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society is the legal and canonical name under which The Episcopal Church is incorporated, conducts business and carries out mission.)Curry’s election comes near the start of a meeting of General Convention that is considering a number of proposals to change some aspects of the governance and management of the church-wide structure and, hence, the roles and responsibilities of the presiding bishop.According to Title I Section 2 in its current form, the presiding bishop is “charged with responsibility for leadership in initiating and developing the policy and strategy in the church and speaking for the Church as to the policies, strategies and programs authorized by the General Convention.”The presiding bishop also “speaks God’s word to the church and world as the representative of this Church and its episcopate in its corporate capacity,” represents The Episcopal Church to the Anglican Communion, serves as chief consecrator of bishops, and leads the House of Bishops. He or she also holds a significant role in the discipline and changes in status of bishops.Also, the presiding bishop exercises a significant role in the governance of the church by making appointments to various governing bodies, making decisions with the president of the House of Deputies, serving as a member of every churchwide committee and commission, and serving as chair and president of key church governing boards. He or she is the chief executive officer of the Executive Council, which carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1)(a). Therefore, the presiding bishop is responsible for staff and operations of the Episcopal Church Center, with the exception of the executive office of the General Convention.In its “Call to Discernment and Profile”, the joint nominating committee said the 27th presiding bishop would need to be “comfortable in the midst of ambiguity and able to lead the church in the rich, temporal space between the ‘now,’ and the ‘yet to come.’” The person discerned and elected by the church would need to “delight” in the diversity of a “multi-national, multi-lingual, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-generational church.” And, because “our polity has many components and complexities,” the 27th presiding bishop will need the “skills and wisdom for leading complex and democratic systems through a time of significant change.”Historically, the office of presiding bishop was filled automatically by the most senior bishop in the House of Bishops, measured by date of consecration, beginning with the presidency of William White at the first session of the 1789 General Convention. That process changed in 1925 when the church elected the Rt. Rev. John Gardner Murray as the 16th presiding bishop.Presiding Bishop-elect Curry’s past ministryBorn in Chicago, Illinois, on March 13, 1953, Curry attended public schools in Buffalo, New York, and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1975 from Hobart and William Smith Colleges, in Geneva, New York, and a Master of Divinity degree in 1978 from the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. He has also studied at the College of Preachers, Princeton Theological Seminary, Wake Forest University, the Ecumenical Institute at St. Mary’s Seminary, and the Institute of Christian Jewish Studies.He was ordained to the diaconate in June 1978 at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buffalo, New York, and to the priesthood in December 1978, at St. Stephen’s, Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He began his ministry as deacon-in-charge at St. Stephen’s, and was rector there 1979-1982. He next accepted a call to serve as the rector of St. Simon of Cyrene, Lincoln Heights, Ohio, where he served 1982-1988. In 1988, he became rector of St. James’, Baltimore, Maryland, where he served until his election as bishop. In his three parish ministries, Curry was active in the founding of ecumenical summer day camps for children, the creation of networks of family day care providers and educational centers, and the brokering of millions of dollars of investment in inner city neighborhoods. He also sat on the commission on ministry in each of the three dioceses in which he has served.During his time as bishop of North Carolina, Curry instituted a network of canons, deacons and youth ministry professionals dedicated to supporting the ministry that already happens in local congregations and refocused the diocese on The Episcopal Church’s dedication to the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals through a $400,000 campaign to buy malaria nets that saved thousands of lives.Throughout his ministry, Curry has also been active in issues of social justice, speaking out on immigration policy and marriage equality.He serves on the boards of a large number of organizations and has a national preaching and teaching ministry. He has been featured on The Protestant Hour and North Carolina Public Radio’s The State of Things, as well as on The Huffington Post. In addition, Curry is a frequent speaker at conferences around the country. He has received honorary degrees from Sewanee, Virginia Theological Seminary, Yale, and, most recently, Episcopal Divinity School. He served on the Taskforce for Re-imagining the Episcopal Church and recently was named chair of Episcopal Relief & Development’s Board of Directors.His book of sermons, Crazy Christians, came out in August 2013.Curry and his wife, Sharon, have two adult daughters, Rachel and Elizabeth.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

In recent days, like so many others, I have reflected a great deal about the powerful history of the African American church throughout the history of this nation. I am so happy that you will be able to bring us a little closer to that history. You seem like a “good man,” as President Obama said of Rev. Clementa Pinckney yesterday, in what was likely the most important speech of his life. I rejoice that change is afoot. May you help bring us into it.

The app, which provides advice on shooting, stabbing and bombing incidents, has now expanded to also provide support in both vehicle and acid attacks. There is also guidance for what to do on encountering an unattended item in a public place.

ForestThe Forest app aims to help people stay focused and off their devices by getting them to plant virtual trees for their own virtual forest that wither if they use their phones within a certain time period. Each successful planting session earns virtual coins. Forest has partnered with non-profit Trees for the Future to which it donates when users of the app earn enough virtual coins, with the funds going towards planting real trees. BuengoCharity app Buengo has released a new version of its iOS app, which allows charities to post volunteering opportunities in its marketplace for good. The marketplace app, which encourages users to donate money to charities by selling things they no longer need, has launched the volunteering feature after users revealed that they would like other ways to get involved with charities. The app aims to become a “platform for good”, where users can connect with charities and good causes, both in their local area and nationally. Adding a volunteering opportunity to the app is completely free for charities once they have signed up (also free) to Buengo. They can then add any type of volunteering opportunity, giving details and encouraging users to either sign up via a link or get in touch to discuss further. Earlier this month, Buengo was nominated as best national digital solution for the United Kingdom for the international World Summit Awards (WSA).

Many businesses are using the grants to purchase equipment or modify their facilities for increased efficiency. Some are using the funding to train additional staff and purchase personal protective equipment.Kettler says the investment is more than just $4 million.“It’s more than a $4 million boost because every one of those dollars had to be matched 1-1, so actually it’s more than an $8 million boost because many of these projects, for example, somebody could have had a $500,000 project and the max reimbursement was $150,000. So, we know that the impact of this growth and what’s happening is going to be more than that $8 million.”Kettler says the struggles continue for small meat processors.“I know that we’ve still got a lot of backlogs. I get that, and that’s probably going to happen for some time. But the stories of these people that applied for these grants and what they did was just very heartwarming. They’re doing what they can, and we expect that this this $4 million in grant money going out to those 41 awardees is going to have a significant impact on those areas.”The 41 awarded meat processors are Hoosier businesses with less than 500 employees.The list of awardees are as follows:Awardee, Location, AmountBrewer Livestock, North Vernon $58,500Brushy Prairie Packing, Inc., LaGrange $118,300Butcher Bob’s, Inc., LaGrange $20,000Cannelburg Processing, Cannelburg $25,900D & D Meat Processing, Corunna $150,000Dewig Bros.

Police excesses in AMU Violence: A Human Rights Violation In January this year, a Division Bench led by Chief Justice Mathur ordered inquiry into alleged police excesses at the Aligarh Muslim University, during protests against the current Government’s pilot project, the Citizenship Amendment Act. Terming the incident to be a ‘human rights violation’ the Court had stated, “Section 12 of Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993 charges National Human Rights Commission as well as the State Human Rights Commission with duty for proper implementation as well prevention of violation of the human rights and fundamental freedoms available to every human being. Under the Act of 1993 the Commission may inquire suo motu or on a petition relating to the students for violation of human rights or abatement thereof or negligence in prevention of such violation by a public servant.” It thus constituted a six-member team of the NHRC, which recommended that action must be taken against the delinquent policemen in accordance with the law apart from compensating the injured students. Accordingly, the Court directed the Director General of Police of the UP Government to identify and take action against the errant policemen. A direction was also made to sensitize the police force and to impart special training so as to inculcate “professionalism” in handling such situations. The order came as a huge relief to students who were not only subjected to unwarranted brutality at the hands of executive but were also being projected as anti-nationals for raising a voice of dissent. Name & Shame Banners: Violation Of Right To Privacy In March, Justice Mathur’s bench was prompt in safeguarding the fundamental right to privacy of individuals allegedly involved in violence during anti-CAA protests, whose photos and personal details were published by the UP Govt in its infamous “Name & Shame Banners”. Soon after the banners appeared in prominent city centres, with the names, photographs and addresses of the accused, Chief Justice took suo moto cognizance of the issue and held a special sitting on a Sunday to deal with it. After an eventful hearing session, the High Court observed that the Government action had an “injurious effect” on the precious rights enshrined under the Constitution and that the Courts cannot “shut its eyes” if a public unjust is happening just before it. These remarks later resonated in Justice Mathur’s message on the occasion of 129th anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar, the chief architect of Indian Constitution. He said, “Being member of the judicial fraternity, the responsibility lies in higher degree on our shoulders to ensure promotion and protection of all constitutional ideals and values. These values are not meant to be adhered by state only, but these must be the way of our life and in day to day activities of every citizen.” The Court concluded that the UP Govt had failed to show why the personal data of few persons had been placed on banners and it thus amounted to an “unwanted interference” with the citizens’ right to privacy. Undoubtedly, the Name & Shame banners had the effect of fixing liability on individuals without a trial and the High Court made extensive observations against such “colorable exercise of powers” by the Executive. “We do not find any necessity for a democratic society for a legitimate aim to have publication of personal data and identity. The accused persons are the accused from whom some compensation is to be recovered and in no manner they are fugitive. Learned Advocate General also failed to satisfy us as to why placement of the banners is necessary for a democratic society for a legitimate aim,” the order read.The State of Uttar Pradesh approached the Supreme Court against the HC verdict. The SC refused to stay the HC verdict but referred the petition to a larger bench. Migrants Issue:suo moto action taken by HC During the course of the national lockdown, the High Court was alive to the hardships being faced by the weaker end of the society, especially migrant labours. After registering a suo moto PIL on the migrants’ issue, the Court ordered that an officer should be appointed over groups of 400 migrants, to keep a regular check on their “health and living conditions”. To ensure that the direction does not remain a mere empty formality, the High Court specifically ordered that such officers shall: enquire about the well-being of the migrants through Mobile Numbers which shall be maintained by those officers.enquire about the healths of the persons entered in their lists, on a daily basis.if they find that food is not being made available to anyone in the list, shall make proper arrangements to see that food is made available. With respect to the migrants who were stranded in other States/ were walking towards their home towns in UP, the Court sought a detailed report on the facilities being provide to them. This direction was in addition to the Standard Operating Protocol issued by the Union Ministry of Home Affairs on movement of stranded workers. Further, to address the issue on a long term basis, Justice Mathur directed the Government to prepare a scheme for rehabilitation of migrants and to come out with employment layout to reduce migration of the natives of Uttar Pradesh to other parts of the country to earn minimum livelihood. Pertinently, this direction was passed a month prior to the Central Government’s Garib Kalyan Rozgar Abhiyaan which aims at utilizing the migrant labour’s skills to boost development in their native villages, while providing them employment. Kafeel Khan’s case In its latest stride, the High Court set aside the detention order passed against Gorakhpur-based paediatrician Dr. Kafeel Khan, under the stringent National Security Act, 1980, allegedly for giving a provocative speech during an anti-CAA protest last year. He had been languishing in the Mathura Jail since January 2020. The High Court rapped the local District Magistrate who had passed the detention order under NSA in February this year, for a ‘selective reading’ of Khan’s speech and selective mention of few phrases from his speech, “ignoring its true intent”. Dr. Khan, who addressed a group of AMU students during protests against the contentious CAA Bill, inter alia, made insinuations against ‘Mota Bhai’ of promoting communalism instead of humanism. The High Court observed that Dr. Khan’s remarks in fact called for “national integrity and unity among the citizens”. “A complete reading of the speech prima facie does not disclose any effort to promote hatred or violence. It also no where threatens peace and tranquility of the city of Aligarh. The address gives a call for national integrity and unity among the citizens. The speech also deprecates any kind of violence,” the High Court observed in a much-celebrated ruling. It made significant remarks with respect to right to liberty of citizens as reiterated below: “Preventive detention is an exceptional mode to curtail liberty and freedom of a person in exceptionally rare circumstances. Under Article 21 of the Constitution of India along with the right to life, the right to personal liberty is a precious fundamental right. This precious fundamental right must always be protected.” Presently, Justice Mathur’s bench is seized with the case of a missing BHU student who allegedly disappeared from the Police Custody in February this year. The Court had taken cognizance of the matter based on a letter petition and had passed relevant orders in the Habeas Corpus plea last month. It has adopted a stern approach in the matter, mandating personal attendance of concerned Senior Superintendent of Police and rapping the authorities for filing ‘vague affidavits’. The matter is to be heard on September 22. Inter alia, the Court has taken suo moto cognizanceof plight of minor girls in UP’s Chitrakoot, allegedly being forced to “trade off” their bodies to survive the lockdown induced financial crisis. The Bench had issued notices to the District Magistrate and Chairman, District Legal Services Authority, Chitrakoot and the matter will be taken up on September 10. Covid Crisis: Preventing People From Inflicting Self Harm The High Court is also keeping tabs on the steps being taken by the local authorities to prevent the transmission of Covid 19 virus in the state. The suo moto plea registered by the Bench of Justice Mathur to monitor the conditions of Quarantine Centers in the State, has now been assigned to another Division Bench comprising Justices Siddhartha Varma and Ajit Kumar, to track day to day steps being taken by the local authorities to implement social distancing norms. Recently, the High Court remarked that somehow because of the Unlock guidelines, people had got a wrong impression that they can freely mix with each other and move around. The Court stressed that “Do gaj doori mask pehna zaroori” shibboleth coined by the Government had to be implemented sternly and in order to protect the people from contracting the deadly virus, the authorities may even incarcerate those who flout the Govt guidelines. It observed that overcrowding had to be stopped at any cost and even if the same resulted in “kilometers long queues” outside shops, etc., the same would be for the benefit of people themselves. In its latest orders, the High Court has sought the Government’s response about re-imposing Lockdown in the state, so as to check the surge in Covid cases. It remarked, “Law is meant for the people and if spread of virus COVID-19 can be contained by locking the people inside their homes, let it be, as it will not only save the lives of people in general but even will result in better use of government resources. When we have to balance between bread and butter and life, the latter has to prevail. Food is for life to survive and not vice-versa. We do not think that a lock down for a fortnight would bring the economy of the State to such a halt that people would die of hunger.” Justice Mathur’s approach seems to be driven by a solemn faith in the Constitution, which got reflected in a message given by him on the birth anniversary of Dr B R Ambedkar.He said : “The Constitution of India is not a simple law book or testament for do’s and dont’s, but a well finished path for socio-economic and political progress of India as a nation and as a federal society of its citizens with adequate freedom to all the stakeholders to protect and promote their healthy traditions and values.

Ambedkar.” Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe. All payment options available.loading….Next Story
