girl born in Australia to Nepalese parents could be a watershed in public opinion about the country’s harsh asylum seeker policies The infant known only by the pseudonym Asha Nepalese for "hope" has humanised hundreds of anonymous asylum seekers who are faced with deportation from Australia to a detention camp on the South Pacific island of Nauru The outpouring of public support including an overnight blockade at a Brisbane hospital where she was treated for severe burns has been likened by some to the shocking images last year of a young Syrian asylum seeker dead on a Greek beach Supporters credited the week-long protest at the hospital with forcing the hand of Immigration Minister Peter Dutton who on Monday had Baby Asha and her family moved to a local community detention facility which allows some freedom of movement Activists hold placards and chant slogans as they protest outside the offices of the Australian Immigration Department in Sydney Reuters "What is resonating is that a lot of people are looking at that baby and thinking that could be my baby" said Kon Karapanagiotidis chief executive officer of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre People at the blockade carried posters with the pixellated face of the baby girl and the hashtag #BabyAsha was Twitter’s fourth highest trending topic worldwide over the weekend when the hospital stand-off reached its climax The number of asylum seekers trying to reach Australia is small compared with those arriving in Europe but border security has long been a hot-button political issue The coalition government led by the conservative Liberal Party came to power in 2013 on a campaign to "Stop the Boats" adopting tough measures as a deterrent Everyone who arrives by boat is detained and sent to Nauru or Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island The government also conducts tow-backs or turning a boat back to its origin The policies have been widely criticised by international human rights groups and the United Nations Medical groups have been particularly critical of detaining children in the offshore camps where abuse has been frequently reported Doctors at the Brisbane hospital had refused to release Asha Legal challenge rejected Still Australia’s High Court this month rejected a legal challenge to the country’s right to deport 267 refugee children and their families brought to Australia from Nauru for medical treatment Asha the first baby born in immigration detention in Australia to be transferred to Nauru was flown back to Australia last month for medical treatment after she scalded herself with boiling water while learning to walk in a tent at the detention centre "In terms of a dramatic shift in community attitudes there is no going back from this one" Ian Rintoul coordinator of the Refugee Action Coalition said of the public support for Asha "I think for a large number of people this has been a turning point" However others said any public shift in attitude was unlikely to impact government policy Immigration Minister Peter Dutton strongly hinted at that when he said on Monday that Asha and her family would be returned to Nauru at a later date "We are not going to allow people smugglers to get out a message that if you seek assistance in an Australian hospital that somehow that is your formula to becoming an Australian citizen" Dutton told the Australian Broadcasting Corp "I couldn’t be any clearer – once the medical assistance has been provided and the legal issues resolved people will go back to Nauru" Reuters By: Express News Service |

Unsurprisingly Kiev’s move has angered Moscow which called it “counter-productive” accusing Nato of trying to turn Ukraine into a “frontline of confrontation” Ukrainian anger at Russia — which annexed Crimea after protests dislodged pro-Moscow president Viktor Yanukovych and allegedly began aiding the rebel-led insurgency in the eastern part of the country — is understandable But Kiev’s determination to ally itself with the West is not going to result in an overnight Nato membership It may take several years for the EU to countenance Ukrainian entry On the ground this development may complicate the focus on politically solving the crisis in eastern Ukraine It comes too soon after the talks in Minsk that mitigated but didn’t stop the fighting in which more than 5000 have died Given Russia’s traditional hostility to Nato’s eastward expansion the West — and the crisis-ridden EU in particular — need to consider the costs of Ukrainian entry and its impact on the fragile geopolitical balance Ukraine’s economy is in more trouble than Russia’s which has been hit by sanctions and falling oil prices Economically Ukraine is still umbilically tied to Russia Cheap Russian gas and easy payment subsidised the Ukrainian economy while Russia bought goods manufactured by Ukraine’s dwindling industry This amounted to bilateral trade exceeding Ukraine’s trade with the EU where it exports only raw materials and agricultural produce under quotas Ukrainians also work in Russia So any attempt to pull Kiev into an alliance against Moscow must fill the vacuum a complete severance with Russia would leave There’s no evidence yet the EU or Nato would go so far For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Published: September 14 2017 10:38 pm

recent vote in the UN where India found itself on the same side as Saudi Arabia Pakistan Russia Iran Syria and China on a human rights issue Now that must have stung And that’s why Akbaruddin is twisting himself into a pretzel to explain India’s vote At issue was a Russian proposal that would stop the UN from treating employees with same-sex spouses on par with employees with opposite-sex spouses 40000 UN staff come under the policy’s purview Ban Ki-moon the UN Secretary General wants the UN to recognize same-sex marriage of UN staffers and allow their spouses to receive UN benefits This would be irrespective of whether same-sex marriage was recognized in the staffer’s country of nationality It’s also being seen as part of a larger Washington-Moscow fight over calling the shots and gay staffers have been caught in the crossfire The move failed 43 countries supported it 80 countries opposed it 37 abstained Saudi Arabia at least was upfront about why it supported the proposal Same-sex marriage was “immoral” in its view Others took cover behind more procedural reasons saying their objection was that member states should have been consulted before making these kinds of entitlement decisions It was according to them a “sovereignty” issue Representational image Agencies But sovereignty is just a convenient fig leaf for some old fashioned homo-uneasiness if not homophobia India can claim its hands are tied Whether the government approves or not Section 377 is the law of the land India has used that as an excuse to refuse to extend diplomatic privileges to gay partners of foreign diplomats Some diplomats have refused to serve some have come alone some have had to have their partner come in other capacities sometimes as attendants If Section 377 is the problem the government can show some spine and deal with it The Indian government has adopted a queer attitude with 377 often speaking in two voices or maintaining a studied silence If Rajnath Singh says his party “unambiguously” endorses Section 377 and criminalization of gay sex because “homosexuality is an unnatural act and cannot be supported” then his cabinet colleague Arun Jaitley sings a different tune on English language talk-shows saying he does not think homosexuality should be criminalized Ram Madhav of the RSS also said while he did not want to glorify homosexuality it was debatable whether it should be considered a crime After the Supreme Court verdict the Congress came out strongly against it but its own history with 377 has been checkered to say the least as it has argued for and against it in court This vote would only apply to UN employees It would not mean India would have to recognize same-sex marriage for its citizens Yes it will lead to knotty legal questions about whether extending these privileges puts India in violation of its own law And it will have to figure out answers about why it should not do unto other gay foreign diplomats what it does unto gay UN diplomats But these are all problems it faces because it has been sitting on the fence on this issue keen to not sully its image as the world’s largest democracy but nervous about dealing with this regressive law on its books Instead of actual tackling the elephant in the room ministers in India are coming up with innovative solutions that would wish it away The Shiv Sena’s Dr Deepak Sawant the Maharashtra health minister thinks the LGBT community was in need of “psychological treatment and counselling” Goa’s Sports and Youth Affairs minister Ramesh Tawadkar proposed centres to “administer treatment to LGBT youths to make them normal” Baba Ramdev invited the gay community to his ashram and guaranteed to yoga their homosexuality away And Ghulam Nabi Azad as health minister opined that men having sex with men was a “disease” and “unnatural” and not “good for India” Perhaps these men who want to create detox centers and yoga camps and “cure” homosexuals are a small step forward from those who want to lock up homosexuals as per Section 377 But the fact that even health ministers say these outlandish things shows how much work needs to be done and cannot be done because of Section 377 The government does not want to overtly endorse 377 and face a worldwide backlash for backsliding on what as the UN vote showed is quickly becoming accepted as a bona fide human rights issue But on the other hand it does not want to take 377 by the horns and deal with it either It’s only when a UN vote like this one comes along that it stands exposed India could have abstained from the vote like neighbouring Bhutan and Nepal (Sri Lanka by the way voted against the Russian move) But by opting to line up behind Russia and voting "Yes" India chose to make a statement loud and clear West followed with a performance fit for his ‘Yeezus’ concert, departed early today for its destination after being grounded for over 13 hours.
