White House says 'too early' to link Islamic State to Texas attack
The White House on Tuesday said it was too early to link the Islamic State group to an attack in Texas targeting an exhibit of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed organized by an anti-Muslim right-wing group.

The Islamic State group had earlier in the day claimed responsibility for the attack, saying "two of the soldiers of the caliphate" had carried it out. Earnest cautioned that extremists sometimes make claims of responsibility for propaganda purposes "to try to communicate with individuals around the world, including inside the United States."

Housing.com CEO Rahul Yadav apologises, withdraws resignation
Rahul Yadav, the CEO of realty portal Housing.com, today withdrew his resignation and apologised for reportedly calling fellow board members and investors intellectually incapable of any sensible discussion. Housing.com, which is backed by Japans Softbank, said its board has been reconstituted to include all main shareholder representatives. The board has reaffirmed its faith in Rahul Yadavs vision for the growth of the realty portal, the company said in a statement. "After some frank and healthy discussions with the Board, I have agreed to withdraw my resignation and I apologise for my unacceptable comments about the board members," Yadav said. He added: "I look forward to staying on at Housing as CEO and building an even greater company, while working in full harmony with the board". Yadav, the 26-year-old co-founder, had reportedly written a resignation letter on April 30 to board members and investors questioning their "intellectual capability" and giving them a one-week deadline to "help in the transition". In December last year, Housing.com received USD 90 million funding, led by Japans SoftBank, valuing the portal at about Rs 1,500 crore. It would use the funds to map over 40 million houses across 300 cities in India. Founded in 2012 by a dozen IITians, the Mumbai-based company currently offers services in rent/resale, PG/hostels, new projects, land/plot projects, home loans and rental agreement among others. Its other shareholders include Nexus Venture Partners, Helion Venture Partners, Qualcomm Ventures, Nirvana Ventures and Falcon Edge Capital.
Rahul Yadav apologizes, to stay on as Housing CEO
Rahul Yadav, co-founder of property portal Housing, has apologized to the board members of the company for his unseemly comments against them in a recent letter.

RSS-affiliated outfit holds protest against land bill
The protests by Swadeshi Jagaran Manch(SJM) came at a time when opposition parties have united against the contentious Land Bill even as the organisation said it plans to spread public awareness against the NDA regime if its demands are not considered. During its protest at Jantar Mantar, the SJM also raised concerns over field trials of genetically modified crops and FDI in e-commerce. "The government on tuesday by its policies has proved that it doesn't subscribe to the ideologies of Deendayal Upadhyayaji... the ideologies of Swadeshi thinking and decentralisation of political and economical powers. "Therefore, organisations like Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh and Swadeshi Jagaran Manch feel agitated with its anti-farmer and anti-poor policies which include the irrational land acquisition bill," SJM ideologue K N Govindacharya said. Govindacharya alleged the government was resorting to policies that "failed world over" and did not address the needs of the poor and deprived sections. SJM national co-convenor Ashwani Mahajan insisted that the Centre include provisions of social impact assessment, farmers' consent before acquiring land and ensuring food security in its Land Acquisition bill. He said SJM, irrespective of whichever party is in power, will raise its concerns. The outfit would also engage in dialogue with the government "whenever the opportunity comes". The SJM plans to spread public awareness against the NDA government if its demands are not considered, he said. Separately, Left-backed farmers' organizations along with some opposition parties staged a protest here against the Land bill, contending that it is against the interest of farmers and country. During the rally held at Parliament Street near Jantar Mantar, the organizations maintained that the bill is against the interest of farmers and country's future and one which will lead to food crisis. "We think this bill is not in the interest of our peasantry, it's not in the interest of agriculture and therefore, not in the interest of country's future. And we think this will lead to very very serious deficiencies in our food security, food self-sufficiency. "And this sort of bonanza for Land mafias that cannot be given at the expense on Indian Kisan, the Indian economy and the future of our youth," the new CPI (M) General Secretary Siatram Yechury said while addressing the rally. CPI's Rajya Sabha MP D Raja said the Modi Government aims at destroying Indian agriculture and displace millions of people by bringing in the legislation which helps corporate and big business houses. Besides leaders from Left outfits, representatives of other opposition parties like JD(U) and Trinamool Congress-- Pavan Verma and Dola Sen--addressed the rally. Latest News from India News Desk
