A father remembers his stolen child


Terrorist attacks feature all too often in the news out of Israel. With each suicide attempt that succeeds, lives are lost and sometimes, they belong to children whose parents waited in vain for them to return home from school that day. One such father was Yossi Zur.

He is determined to continue to give his son what was denied to him in death, touching many who now join him in honouring Asaf's memory.

There are some things that endure even in death. One of them is the love for a child.

Tan became the first living person to be allowed to leave Islam in Malaysia.

This May, the first living person was allowed to leave Islam. Siti Fatimah Tan Abdullah was granted legal permission to become a Buddhist and take a new name, Tan Ean Hung.

This case – hailed as a historic ruling then – now seems to be more historical.

Amidst strong protests by Islamist groups in the capital of Kuala Lumpur against the verdict, the government itself was reported as intending to appeal the case.
