9:48 am India lost 3-2 to Malaysia in the quarter-finals of Hockey World League (Source: AP) Top News Out of disgust Roelant Oltmans threw a bib in the dugout With less than five minutes left for India to find an equaliser and force a shoot-out Ramandeep Singh tried to dribble past a couple of Malaysian defenders through the centre instead of passing it to a free man either side of him Expectedly he was blocked and another Indian move ended with nothing You never really see Oltmans show emotions on the touchline It’s rarer to see him lose his temper But India’s performance on Thursday had left many frustrated They eventually lost 3-2 to Malaysia in the quarterfinals of the Hockey World League Oltmans and his players will point out a controversial umpiring decision in the final quarter which led to Malaysia getting a penalty corner Razie Rahim duly converted it to give Malaysia the lead with just 12 minutes left to play But India had several opportunies before and after that goal to wrap up the match India began slowly A surprised Oltmans said the team was ‘nervous’ because of which they could not execute the gameplan The idea was the pass the ball around quickly not allowing the Malaysians to settle Instead the Indian players ran aimlessly Very often in big matches India have resorted to this age-old technique that Oltmans has been trying to get rid off Against India Malaysia tend to pack their half while defending leaving very little space for the attackers to find space In their attempt to dribble past the defenders Indian players kept hitting the wall “They (Malaysia) are a team that is crowded around their own 25 (metre line) So carrying the ball does not work They (Indian players) know understand and discussed it But you still need to execute it” Oltmans said The below-par performance and some sloppy defending ruined India’s hopes They conceded as many as seven penalty corners three of which were converted by Malaysia through Rahim (19th 48th minutes) and Tengku Tajuddin India’s goals came from the sticks of Ramandeep Singh (24th 26th) Ramandeep had a chance to complete his hattrick in the final minute of the game He was unmarked in inside the circle but his deflection in front of an open Malaysian goal was wide by inches By virtue of this win Malaysia have qualified for next year’s World Cup to be held in India For India it is their second defeat against Malaysia in little less than two months Roelant Oltmans’ men had earlier lost 0-1 to the same opponents in the Azlan Shah Cup last month Malaysia will face

Minister Shri Narendra Modi meeting the Prime Minister of Pakistan Related News For some it was a “Nixon to China” moment There were similarities also with Anwar Sadat’s trip to Jerusalem that marked the beginning of the Arab-Israeli peace process Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif boldly invited his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi to drop in and Modi stopped over in Lahore on Christmas Day on the way back to Delhi from Kabul As gestures go it was as clear a statement as any by both leaders that they are committed to overcoming the burden of the past and building a better future for India-Pakistan relations But while dramatic gestures are an integral part of international relations and diplomacy good ties between nations with an adversarial past are not made of dramatic gestures alone Richard Nixon’s China trip was preceded by and followed up with several rounds of meticulous negotiations The US realised it could not ignore a nation of one billion people forever American corporations salivated at the prospect of access to a new market comprising almost a fifth of the world’s population On the Chinese side Mao and Zhou Enlai persuaded their colleagues that China needed peace with the US to deal with threats from the Soviet Union Later Deng Xiaoping’s “Four Modernisations” concept transformed the Chinese Communist Party Deng argued successfully that China needed to modernise catch up with the world before thinking of itself as a global power The US-China entente paved the way for China’s peaceful rise and some would argue the demise of the Soviet Union But it also left the Communist Party entrenched in power albeit at the head of a capitalist economy Both China and the US benefited though China may have profited more Nixon went to China in 1972 paving the way for 43 years of cooperation between two countries that had been adversaries until then Although the US stopped recognising the Republic of China government in Taiwan it did not abandon Taiwan’s security China went on to build its own economic ties with Taiwan under the “One Country Two Systems” slogan Anwar Sadat’s trip to Jerusalem did not result in a similarly enduring peace He secured the return of the Sinai Peninsula from Israel and became the first Arab leader to establish diplomatic relations with the Jewish state Egypt and Israel are still at peace but the hoped-for broader Arab-Israeli normalisation has not materialised Both Sadat and his Israeli partner in the peace talks Yitzhak Rabin were assassinated by extremists All Arabs have not accepted the right of Israel to exist a Palestinian state has not emerged neither Israeli occupation nor terror have ended What does the success of the “Nixon to China” initiative foretell about the “Modi to Lahore” foray especially when seen in contrast to the miscarriage of the “Sadat in Jerusalem” undertaking The US-China rapprochement had broad support in both countries while the pockets of hatred in the Middle East were just too strong to fashion an effective compromise Sadat will always be admired for his courage and vision but that vision is taking much longer to materialise In the case of India and Pakistan Sharif and Modi definitely seem to have the desire to normalise relations But there is considerable potential for spoilers on both sides to ensure that nothing substantive moves forward The two PMs can ignore politically weak opponents trying to play to the gallery at home On the Pakistani side all major political parties have welcomed Modi’s trip though that has not been the case in India So far it seems that the Pakistan military too is on board with Sharif’s efforts to resume dialogue through foreign secretary-level talks But will Sharif be able to shut down all jihadi groups in Pakistan including India-specific groups such as the Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Muhammad What will Modi and Sharif be able to offer those in Pakistan who believe there should be no normalisation of ties until the issue of J&K is resolved India’s final offer on Kashmir — an adjustment along the LoC in which both sides largely keep what they have — has been on the table since 1963 It has not been acceptable to Pakistan Militancy is seen by hardliners in Pakistan as the only way to keep the Kashmir issue alive precluding a total shutdown of all jihadis Then there are the votaries of Hindutva who cannot stop talking of “Akhand Bharat” and Pakistan’s Islamists who think the Prophet has prophesied Ghazwa-e-Hind — a great battle for Islamisation of India BJP general secretary Ram Madhav is the latest ideologue to speak out of turn about “Akhand Bharat” giving fodder to Pakistan’s “Ghazwa-e-Hind” extremists who deem India an eternal enemy of Pakistan That nuclear weapons should change simple-minded ideological equations does not occur to either Sharif’s foreign affairs advisor Sartaj Aziz probably had these factors in mind when he said after the Modi stopover in Lahore that he did not expect much from the initial phase of Pakistan-India talks Then what if anything might be accomplished from Modi and Sharif holding hands in Lahore From Modi’s perspective it would be good to have a ceasefire in militant attacks similar to the one that resulted from talks during the Manmohan Singh era following the standoff over the attack on India’s Parliament It lasted for several years allowed India to break the back of the militancy in J&K and ended only after the 2008 Mumbai attacks Sharif on the other hand might just be seeking to assert himself in external relations while trying to open space for trade with India Pakistan’s Punjabi business elite want trade with India and as a member of that elite Sharif does too though Pakistani critics of such trade also abound The best outcome in the India-Pakistan case for now comprises modest possibilities These should not be dismissed lightly but they do not reflect a “Nixon to China” moment that dramatically transforms adversarial

Governor Salman Taseer shouts religious slogans while being taken away by the police after he was presented at a court in Islamabad in this January 5 2011 file picture (Source: Reuters) Top News Moment of hope: February 29 Pakistan finally hanged the policeman Mumtaz Qadri who riddled Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer with bullets in 2011 Moment of despair: March 3 a mammoth gathering mourned Qadri and buried him as a “martyr” The state cowered as the clergy empowered to act like warriors over many years condemned the supreme court for allowing the hanging instead of beatifying Qadri as a blasphemer-killing saint The court had observed that the governor had not blasphemed and that even if he had Qadri criminally took the law into his own hands and must hang for it Five years after the killing the masses that gathered to mourn Qadri called him a “defender of Islam” and cursed the state At Qadri’s funeral the mourners were around 150000 frighteningly disciplined as directed by their religious leaders The 39 Barelvi parties blasphemy-obsessed were there in strength; the Deobandi jihadi seminaries empowered by training for assaults on India and Iran blessed it There was an English-Urdu divide over the event Urdu fulminated against the hanging in the opinion of the columnists known to be aligned with religious parties One recalled the pre-1947 hanging of Ilm Deen “Shaheed” who killed a Hindu publisher in Lahore for writing an insulting book on the Holy Prophet reflecting that the Islamic state of Pakistan had followed the example of the secular (pagan) British Raj Another regretted that the government had not heeded his advice to indefinitely postpone Qadri’s hanging as he had overwhelming support from the legal community The post-hanging furore was unprecedented as the mob gathered for funeral prayers in Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh where Pakistan had shot and killed two of its prime ministers Liaquat Ali Khan and Benazir Bhutto The supreme court had snubbed all signs of the neutering of the state in the face of an empowered clergy and ignored what had happened last year when half a dozen persons trying to observe the murder anniversary of Taseer were thrashed by “unknown” persons in the presence of a bunch of scared policemen Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain had signed the death warrant without anticipating the reaction from the multitudes that immediately took to the street and blocked all traffic in most big cities at pre-designated choke points The cry went up: Don’t touch the blasphemy law that targets non-Muslims and doles out death verdicts against them to make them realise they live in an Islamic state How could the state forget it had fostered the clergy into becoming jihadi an act of empowerment that gives them executive power to challenge the state’s lawmaking on the touchstone of sharia that only they are supposed to interpret In 2009 the state watched as seminaries distributed the 130-page monograph by al-Qaeda ideologue Ayman al-Zawahiri titled The Morning and the Lamp which challenged Pakistan’s constitution and called for the state’s undoing Everybody knew that jihad had castrated the state and it was powerless to defy the Frankenstein of the madrasa Then why did it hang Qadri It knew that the growing middle class represented by the clergy and the lawyers loved Qadri for having killed a secularist who had sided with a poor illiterate Christian woman condemned to death for blasphemy by a judge after condoning the poor girl’s “entrapment” by a local mosque cleric Another act of “un-Islamic” derring-do was committed by Lahore’s Punjab assembly the same week that stirred the madrasa cauldron of Pakistan even more It passed the Protection of Women Law to prevent violence against them It sought to punish men — no reference to “husbands” as that could offend against their Quranic right to physically punish wives — who raped and thrashed women and subjected them to coercion The husband the permitted tyrant in the lives of Muslim women was only implied But there was a catch in the law that gave a handle to the clergy already offended by the army’s bombing of the Taliban in north Waziristan The new law implied that a woman could be located “outside the house” during the offence The clergy says the place of the Muslim woman is in the house; she can’t go out without a male guardian from the family called a “mehram” The Taliban had thrashed women flouting the law on the streets of Kabul Mufti Naeem of Jamia Binoria of Karachi the nursery of most Islamic killers fulminated against Punjab Maulana Fazlur Rehman came to Multan in south Punjab to condemn the law favouring women and said “The religious parties have few votes but it doesn’t mean they can’t topple the government They can’t allow society to become secular” The message was clear: Pakistan was on the edge of an abyss it had to draw back and not think of changing the nature of the state The

jail “Patil (then 45) was arrested by the Kolhapur’s Gandhi Nagar Police on December 14 over charges of rash driving and wrongful restraint and was remanded in judicial custody” the MSHRC order reads It adds “Reports show that on admission he was sent for medical checkup and the examining doctor of the Kolhapur civil hospital certified him as fit for judicial custody But the Prison Superintendent noticed swelling on his legs and referred him back to the civil hospital On re-examination the civil hospital medics suspected Patil had an ailment connected to the liver He was sent back to the prison after being prescribed medicine” Records show that the jail staff had reported worsening of Patil’s condition to the the jail superintendent the next day but citing unavailability of police

eventually rushed to the hospital when his condition turned serious on December 17 but he died the same day Citing “serious lapses” on part of the medical officer of the civil hospital and the jail superintendent the MSHRC has rapped the state for the absence of a medical officer in the jail hospital The state has been asked to award a compensation of Rs 1 lakh to Patil’s next of kin within the next four weeks observing that the “negligence on the part of the medical officer and the jail superintendent had contributed to the deterioration of Patil’s health resulting in his death” The state
