Citizens react ahead of Uzbekistan’s election | AFP

Citizens in ex-Soviet Uzbekistan head to the first parliamentary polls since a new leader ushered in optimistic reforms, but choice at the ballot box remains scant. Shavkat Mirziyoyev took charge over Central Asia’s most populous country in 2016 — the same year hardline predecessor and former patron Islam Karimov died after nearly three decades in power. Over 20 million people are eligible to vote in the Muslim-majority republic where 33 million people live. from Uzbek citizensN°1N60IP

In Gujarat, Narendra Modi hails a “bright future” for the blood-soaked Himalayan region.

Pakistan Wants The World To Do Something About India And Kashmir

Muneeb Ur Rehman was at home with his family when a mortar shell hit the house and killed him.

“He was hit in the head once, and one shell piece hit his leg. There was huge bloodshed, so much blood just flowing inside the house,” said Nazakath Ali Khan, Muneeb’s cousin.

Battal lies on the Pakistani side of the so-called Line of Control, a de facto border that splits the disputed region of Kashmir with Pakistan controlling one side and India controlling the other.

Islamabad and Delhi both claim Kashmir in full, but since the 1949 U.N.-brokered ceasefire, they control only parts of it — territories recognized internationally as Indian-administered Kashmir and Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

The two countries are on the verge of war over Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move earlier this month to revoke Article 370, a constitutional provision that had granted special status to the region of Kashmir that it controls.

Khan told VICE News that since Modi’s move on Aug. 5, there’s been an upsurge in violence.

“It has become routine here — people dying here day by day. You can find there is more bombardment from India, there are more fighters, there’s more targeted killings from the Indian side,” Khan said.

To try to stifle any violent reaction, India has put the region it controls on lockdown. The military patrols the streets, and the internet has been blacked out. It’s the only Muslim-majority state in India, leading many in Pakistan and Pakistan-administered Kashmir to believe Modi’s move is motivated by extreme Hindu nationalism.

The situation has become serious enough that the United Nations Security Council met on Aug. 16 to discuss the crisis, the first time it met formally to discuss Kashmir since 1971.

This Indonesian School Is Deradicalizing The Children Of Convicted Terrorists (HBO)

As the headmaster of an Islamic boarding school in Indonesia, Khairul Ghazali’s biggest challenge is changing his students’ radical views of Islam.

“Even when we taught them that what their parents did was wrong, they contradicted us,” Ghazali told VICE News. “They said that what their parents did was right, that their parents were killed, tortured. They still defended them.”

Ghazali is no stranger to extremism, being a former terrorist himself. After he served a six-year jail sentence, he set out to help those children and opened his school in 2015.

Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country, and it’s sent hundreds of fighters to ISIS and Syria – more than any other country in Asia. Ghazali estimates that there are more than 3,000 children of extremists in Indonesia, and he hopes that his school will help to stop the radicalization of the next generation.

An Iraqi refugee answers your questions about life under Trump’s travel ban

Federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland blocked President Trump’s revised travel ban from taking effect last week, but the government has appealed the rulings, and refugees in the U.S. and around the world are anxiously waiting to see what happens next.

Beyond restricting entry to the U.S. for people from six Muslim-majority countries, Trump’s executive order seeks to halt the resettlement of all refugees — regardless of where they’re from — and cap the total number of refugees the U.S. will admit this year at 50,000, less than half as many as the Obama administration had previously agreed to accept.

Trump’s rhetoric has created confusion about refugees. The president claims the U.S. needs to overhaul its security screening procedures for refugees in order to prevent terrorist attacks, but most refugees already undergo 18-24 months of intense vetting.

To help understand what it means to be a refugee and learn more about how they end up in the U.S., VICE News is hosting a live Q&A with Taif Jany, an Iraqi refugee who fled the sectarian violence that followed the U.S. invasion of his homeland in 2003.

Jany, now the policy coordinator for the Young Elected Officials Network, will share his story and answer your questions starting at 2 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday.
