Killing in the name of cow worship is not acceptable, PM Modi said today. Addressing a gathering in Ahmedabad, PM said, “No person in this nation has the right to take the law in his or her own hands in this country”. Meanwhile, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi termed as “mere lip service” the prime minister’s statement against violence in the name of cow protection and said the BJP and Sangh-affiliated outfits have put a lower premium on human life.

The Congress said it won’t attend the launch of the Goods and Services Tax. The GST launch is scheduled for midnight on June 30 in a special Parliament session. “Midnight session of parliament was held only thrice starting with August 15, 1947. In 1972, session was held to mark silver jubilee and the third time it was for golden jubilee of our Independence,” Congress’s Ghulam Nabi Azad said, adding, “May be 1947 has no relevance for BJP because they played no role in freedom struggle.”
Indian Army should learn “historical lessons”, China warned India.

The Donglong (Doklam) is a tri-junction area near the Chumbi Valley. It is under China’s control. However, Bhutan claims sovereignty over the area.

The Iraqi government troops captured the mosque in Mosul today. Seizing the 850 year-old Grand al-Nuri Mosque hands a symbolic victory to the Iraqi forces who have been battling for more than eight month to recapture Mosul, the northern city that served as Islamic State’s de facto capital in Iraq. Iraqi authorities expect the battle to end in the coming days as Islamic State has been bottled up in a handful of neighborhoods of the Old City.
43 McDonald’s outlets in Delhi will shut today, 1700 will lose jobs.
