London: British PM said that almost 1,90,000 Muslim women do not know the English language and these women because of the lack of education were exploited. He said that in these societies women are controlled by the men and this control is damaging. Cameron added that country needs to counter this backward attitude.

British PM denied to directly link the poor English language and extremism but he said that people who do not know English properly, are more susceptible to the extreme ideologies.


Cameron showed a desire to build, “a more integrated, cohesive, one nation society, where everyone can make the most of their talents’’.

He said that if people can’t speak the same language then it can’t be a country of opportunities. PM also said that however, it is not the fault of their own because they are not taught to integrate into the new society and culture.

Cameron hinted that people who will not be able to pass the language test within two and a half years, might not be allowed to stay in the country.

He told the Times newspaper that if a person does not improve his English fluency, it might affect his stay in the UK.

The comments from PM David Cameron received a lot of criticism from various groups as they called it a result of stereotyping and fear about Islam and the East.

The Ramadan foundation also criticized Cameron and called it a cheap political trick to score some points.

India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

Kerala is a land of many good things. It has an abundance of nature, culture, art, and food. It is also a place of legend and myth, and is known for its popular folklore, the legend of Yakshi. This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights.
