7:10 am
city the fragile peace between hindus and muslims. this is a hatred for one community effort to raise the identity of everything built by the community why are they only changing these names. the move also comes with political overtones just a few kilometers away from a city called are you already exist. it's a site for hindus it's believed to be the setting of the epic mayan one of the main text in him. that is the main reason. and gotten team led by prime minister. supports the name change. her wanting adama to india is so much wrong on here you remove these places of great coup true under the aegis importance to the hindu community. and we've been hearing and reading about the fountains of
7:11 am
use. but this isn't all you will because no one for twenty six years ago it was the demolition of a mosque in this city that spock's some of the was ten the muslim riots that independent india has seen two thousand people were killed across the country and the issue continues to be every live just and political flash point. back in past presidents don't get about to put it to keep on top of the hill the name change means he has practical implications. or that was an edict that he there's no advantage to this but a tourist once come to phase about and finds i audience that will confuse it for the old city of iowa. to be. safe and government has made for good decision to rename the city i want to but i was no hesitation among our hindu or muslim before this when i was in amman i am not liking it that the name is seized
7:12 am
to iowa dad because this is my book plays and a lot of my documents i've even i have to change. more than a million residents of the district i left with one question. and you identity as well. and the misha just fall who filed that report joins us now from delhi didn't finish it india will be holding a general election in just a few months is there a political dimension related to that in these place name changes. well you know political manifesto by the central government specifically state paying state of book buses that i'm tired that is definitely a political implication held because of all of the tenure of prime minister noda and more these government minorities especially muslims have felt increasingly in secured there's also a push to glorify hindu poss the concept. that says that even though this is a secular country everybody living hell should follow hindu norms in life not is
7:13 am
easing islamic names not just in cities but in reality stations even dogs named off the islamic leaders basically implies that we've only acknowledged the hindu aspects of pasta not the muslim aspect now this of course is a problem going forward for the elections but this can be something that can be used to be advantage of the government in. india has been renaming cities since nine hundred forty s. during the decline of british colonial rule or there are still cities left that might end up being renamed. that are actually proposes a survey name over one hundred twenty over one hundred thirty cities so there's definitely a push that even smaller villages with relatively islamic names should be renamed however this is not a simple task the names that are making it to the new was just cities and have of attraction not of political attention but this actually
7:14 am
a long process that goes about in the renaming post offices are consolidated and there are going to make sure there's no imitation for the white and the courts also equipped to stop these remains but so far they have not been involved but they could be moved before that on up to the election to make more such changes to appeal to the hindu sentiment and we should thank you so much for that it was g.w.'s gnomish or just well they're talking to us from delhi. now they just wanted to help and now they may have to pay for it church communities and ordinary citizens who offered to be guarantors for refugees arriving in germany have received letters from job centers and authorities with some unpleasant news they're being asked to foot the bill for refugees lodging and social security costs often to the tune of several thousand euros. three times a week docked to get volunteers to help the homeless western german city of mind.
7:15 am
it's really it's important to how people in and around the world right principle trouble lives by he's traveled to syria many times as a medical volunteer and witnessed the desperation there when the country's civil war with and he agreed to sign financial guarantees for young syrians to help make it possible for them to enter germany then to initiate violence in the camps they were told if you don't fight with us with i.a.s. or assad and put you in prison. so then it becomes an ethical humanitarian obligation to give these people a chance to live in safety mentioned. in height even to kind of one of the eight refugees trouble vouched for is gagged the young syrian says he will be forever grateful to the german doctor. and clique that we're at war i couldn't stay there. but now german authorities are charging travel for the
7:16 am
refugees living costs that could be one hundred sixty thousand euros which he believed the government would pay since the refugees he vouched for had official status. nothing else i assume that if someone does not gain official refugee status then i would bear the risk and be financially responsible otherwise and this was suggested by politicians i would be financially responsible only up to the time refugee status was officially granted after a change to the law and twenty sixteen guarantors now have to pay up to three years board and lodging regardless of whether the refugees are officially recognized or not after numerous protests and complaints the government is now trying to find a solution the ministry of labor says until that point that claims on current tolls will not be enforced but travel has already received a demand for almost fourteen thousand euros from a debt collection company the invoice threatens further action if the money is not paid when asked the or for a he's told us this threat was a clerical error. despite his doctor's income try but says he can't afford to pay
7:17 am
these bills and fears the costs could ruin him financially but still he doesn't regret his decision to help syrians. if i had to do it over again i would make the same decision i see as my or our social responsibility to be there for people whose lives are in danger whose existence is threatened and the existential. fifty's i mentioned to. travel hopes that he and the other refugee guarantors will not have to pay anything else he believes would mean all thora he is making individual citizens responsible for the costs of immigrants right to asylum. and here with us in the studio to talk about the stories do political correspondent good morning hearns tell us what are the refugees guarantors being confronted with these bills now. well we have to look at the legal situation here and in the lol that was pasta in two thousand and sixteen there is a period of three years that the garron tolls are obliged to pay for these refugees
7:18 am
and if we think back three years from today that was late two thousand and fifteen that's when a huge wave of refugees from syria entered into germany and so there are many cases that as it would expire and off of these three years and that's why the author of issuing these bills you also have to remember that we're talking here about very special cases of refugees these are people that were actually brought into germany from syria where ever. after these garron tolls had guaranteed that they would pay for the travelling costs and for the cost of the people once they were here in germany so we're talking about maybe something here on sixty thousand refugees and maybe about six thousand or seven thousand actual garon tolls that that on all facing these financial problems france did that just the fact that these bills are being presented now indicate that the german government is taking
7:19 am
a tougher line on helping refugees also father both origins have said that they are legally obliged to issue these bills but in fact they have not really been enforced and that is in fact this statement that is coming from the german government at the moment but the job centers who in other words the authorities who are responsible for refugees and seeing that they are housed and get medical care and find jobs and so on they are saying that they need to issue these bills otherwise they will expire the plans will expire and they are legally obliged actually to issue these bills hans thanks very much for explaining that force political correspondent once upon. now in the world of chess the world championship is in throwing fans everywhere defending champion magnus carlsen and his challenger fabiano caruana remain in a deadlock after ten matches with just two games remaining before

anticipated christmas bonus with good deals a fifty five inch t.v. set for under four hundred dollars smart speakers for just twenty five dollars black friday is associated with large discounts now the shopping frenzy was invented in the united states but much of the rest of the world has now jumped on board here in germany the country's retail association expects people to spend two point four billion euros on black friday and cyber monday that's a fifteen percent increase compared to last year many retailers are now taking these two days as seriously as the traditional summer and winter clearance sales. for more black friday i have large house or here is my colleague of business lars you've lived in the us for quite some time and seen many black fridays what's your take on the shopping frenzy was just getting bigger and crazier because of every
7:22 am
year with people lining up in the early evening hours to be in the store really at the stroke of midnight and it's an absolute stamp peak then but this whole theater as you might call it from just seeing the pictures obviously speaks to an economic truth that is not a very good one to speak. tells you a lot of consumers in america many of whom are living paycheck to paycheck and for many people in america black friday is an important day because it's really the only day where those bargains where they can buy a pair of sneakers or a new t.v. are still worth it for retailers it is yes and no it is definitely when it comes to revenues because black friday drives in the crowds and of course it's about market share it's about those revenue numbers but those definitely come at a price and that of course is razor thin margins there's really not much money in terms of profits to be made that particular day and next friday is catching on all around the world but it's not that much of a big deal in europe for example yes that's because we have an entirely different shopping culture here you could not imagine stores in germany let's say to open at
7:23 am
midnight or so and that's probably a good thing it has to do with stronger labor laws here as well retailers in retail workers in europe and most countries of course in the world have regular working hours in america they don't they have no guaranteed hours they have low wages and they're not given much of an option here they have to work throughout and throughout a holiday weekend that they would probably spend with their family rather but they're basically told you have to show up at midnight and work thought the night where you going to be fired and lars briefly how does the whole online business factor in here of course that's a big thing over the last couple of years and just like every day retail also on black friday or cyber monday online takes a bigger and bigger slice off the pile here if you just think of eleven eleven here singles day recently the online version of black friday coming out of china ali baba us on shopping day as billions made of course online too but it also comes with a little bit of a problem here cyber security experts of course warn that these bargains can make
