    Draupadi world's first feminist: Ram Madhav

    Panaji: BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav on Sunday said that Pandava queen Draupadi was the "first feminist in the world".  "Draupadi was the first feminist in the world. She had five husbands; she won't listen to any of the five.

    She only listened to (Lord) Krishna, who was a friend. But we never call her promiscuous," Madhav said at the one-day Indic festival here. He said Draupadi was "singularly responsible" for the Mahabharata war that led to the killing of 18 lakh persons on the battlefield. The war resulted from Draupadi's stubbornness, said Madhav, who has a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh background.

    Palestinian billionaire Masri released by Saudis, to leave country soon, sources close to family say

    Amman: Jordan’s most influential businessman, the Palestinian billionaire Sabih al-Masri, returned to his home in Riydah after being detained by Saudi authorities and is expected to be allowed to leave the country soon, sources close to the family said on Sunday. 

    Masri’s detention, which follows the biggest purge of the Saudi kingdom’s affluent elite in its modern history, has sent shockwaves through business circles in Jordan and the Palestinian territories, where the billionaire has major investments. A Saudi citizen of Palestinian origin, Masri is also the chairman of Amman-based Arab Bank, one of the Middle East’s largest financial institutions. He was detained last Tuesday hours before he was planning to leave after he chaired meetings of companies he owns, sources said.
