NEW DELHI:  Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday called for “joint action� by all agencies to combat the worsening air quality in the national capital, choking under a thick layer of smog.

A thick layer of toxic smog engulfed the city as the pollution level continued to remain in the ‘severe’ category for the fourth consecutive day on Friday.

Addressing a press conference here, Javadekar said it was not the time for different agencies to blame each other.

“Delhi pollution is not the problem of this city… Delhi’s air has been worsening since 1990s. There are new challenges everyday as circumstances change. We have worked towards reducing industrial pollution, construction waste and dust etc. There is continuous work.

“But everyone should work together. Cooperation of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi government, all three MCDs and NDMC, DDA, and all other agencies is required to fix this. Everyone has to work together,� the minister said.

He said the government was “very serious about the issue of air pollution.

“Air pollution is an issue to be tackled collectively by agencies. It is not the time to blame each other. We are very serious about the issue of pollution,� the minister said.

The high pollution can be attributed to low wind speed, which has led to stagnation of pollutants in the air and slowed down the dispersion process, authorities said.

The air quality index (AQI) in Delhi was in the severe category at 467 at 10 am. All the monitoring stations recorded severe air quality, according to the Central Pollution Control Board. (agencies)

Ex-atheist Hamza Ali Abbasi quits showbiz; to spread Islam

Islamabad [Pakistan]: Pakistani actor Hamza Ali Abbasi on Thursday announced his decision to quit showbiz.

In a video shared by him on Twitter, Abbasi spoke about his journey – how he became an atheist when he was 14-15 years old and how science “brought him back” being a theist when he went to the US.

“I want to spend the rest of my life talking about God,” Abbasi said in the video-sharing that his decision is based on 10 years research.

Abbasi, who recently married Naimal Khawar, said that now he will try to shape his life in accordance with Islam and will try to spread across the message through various platforms.

“Being an ‘ex-atheist’, I want to share the answers I have received about God with people. I don’t want to debate or convince people, I just want to share,” he said and added that if he will make any movie or show, then it will be about Islam.

The 35-year-old actor is known for his roles in films like ‘Main Hoon Shahid Afridi’, ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Ani’, ‘Waar’, and TV shows like ‘Pyaray Afzal’.

Abbasi had earlier said in a tweet in October that he will make an important announcement soon.

“A journey of more than a decade comes to an end. I have a very important announcement to make at the end of this month. Will hope my voice reaches many. Will be off social media till the end of October,” he tweeted on October 11.

This comes after Pakistani singer Rabi Pirzada on November 4 announced that she has decided to quit the entertainment industry. The announcement came after her private pictures and videos were leaked online.

Rabi took to her official Twitter account and wrote, “I, Rabi Pirzada, am quitting showbiz. May Allah forgive my sins. And soften the hearts of people in my favour.”

I really wish you would do something about the ‘Islamic Voice’ website. You have published several letters complaining about the website, but despite that I don’t know if you have taken any action. In this day and age, if you want your magazine to be read more widely, please do GIVE MORE FOCUS TO HAVING A MORE READER-FRIENDLY WEBSITE. The old version of your website was so much better.
