first_imgThe Uttar Pradesh Sunni Central Waqf Board on Thursday denied reports that it was diluting its stand in the Babri Masjid-Ram Janmabhoomi case. It said it “”unequivocally affirms its full faith in the ability and competence” of senior counsel Rajeev Dhawan, who is arguing for the Muslim side.Mr. Dhawan is “doing a commendable job in putting forth the case of Babri Masjid,” Board chairman Zufar Ahmed Faruqi said. The Board “shall ever remain indebted to him [Mr. Dhawan].” The Board also welcomed the permission granted for mediation by the Supreme Court, arguing that a “mutually amicable settlement will be beneficial for both the communities in maintaining harmony and cordial relations.”The Board’s clarification was issued a day after a faction of the Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind accused Mr. Faruqi of engaging in activities that raised “suspicion” in the case and warned him against entering into any “secret deals” that went against the Constitution or harmed the Muslim community.last_img read more

Sport clean and clear skin

first_imgMy facial skin is sensitive to almost every cream and sunscreen and results in irritation. However, my work requires me to spend long hours in the sun. As a result, I have developed a dark film on my face. What should I do? -TaniyaConsidering your work requires you to spend long hours in the sun, it is of utmost importance that you stay adequately protected. I strongly recommend that you do not use OTC sunscreens. Instead, consult a good dermatologist and opt for specially-formulated medicated ones for sensitive skin such as Cetaphil or Aveeno sunscreens.To get rid of the dark film, you can also choose skin-lightening creams containing hydroquinone, kojic acid, glycolic acid, etc.However, since you need to be extra careful about the formulation you pick, it is best bought with a prescription.You can also undergo a few sessions of IPL laser, also referred to as photo-rejuvenation treatment to decrease irritability of your skin and improve its tone. However, ensure you get this done only under the supervision of a good dermatologist.I have light and dark patches all over my face. Although I have been religiously applying creams containing Vitamin C, there has been no improvement. Can you suggest a way out? -VisheshYou are probably suffering from a condition known as peri-oral pigmentation. Lifestyle management is key to treating this condition. Cut out empty carbohydrates and increase your intake of fruits, salads and green, leafy vegetables.Alongside, incorporate cardiovascular exercises at least three to four times a week in your fitness schedule. Using certain lightening creams may be helpful but it’s best you consider procedures like microdermabrasion which helps to exfoliate the dead layers of skin thereby lending it a glowDr Rekha Sheth is a leading cosmetic dermatologist.
