India: Militants set deadline for women to quit jobs
Source:The Indian Times
A militant group in Rajouri has asked Muslim women to quit their jobs by January 25 and stay home, or face punishment, including death.
Posters to this effect have appeared overnight on the main walls of a mosque in Shahdara Sharief. Similar posters appeared a few days ago too, asking Muslim families to marry off their daughters by the age of 15. The handwritten posters carry the name of Harkat-ul-Jehadi-Islamia (Huji).
