Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Khaled Ahmed | Published: February 6 2016 12:17 am Top News Islamabad’s central place of worship the Lal Masjid (Red Mosque) has become the symbol of the contraction of the state in Pakistan It defies the state and threatens to “update” itself to suit the murderous extremism of al-Qaeda and the Islamic State The lowest point in the state’s relationship with Lal Masjid was reached when its chief priest Maulana Abdul Aziz refused to condemn the slaughter of 132 children by the Taliban in Peshawar’s Army Public School in December 2014 Despite civil society protest and cases against Aziz no action was taken He had dared the state in 2007 too and started attacking the capital selectively which the government of Pervez Musharraf suffered silently — till Aziz attacked a Chinese-run massage parlour The Red Mosque was attacked by a commando force on July 11 2007 Aziz’s brother was killed but the upshot was that al-Qaeda wiped out the commando unit later and announced the formation of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Musharraf was deposed and faces a trial today for treason which must be the most outrageous irony in the history of Pakistan — a former army chief is seen as a traitor while a terrorist cleric rules the capital city de facto Today Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan says he can’t proceed against Aziz because “there is nothing culpable in what he has been doing” Pakistan swallowed much more than this by allowing impunity to Lal Masjid: It ignored the kidnapping of seven Chinese nationals and allowed the Uyghur rebels active inside the seminary to target the Chinese in Islamabad Andrew Small in his book The China-Pakistan Axis: Asia’s New Geopolitics (2015) tells the story few in Pakistan know The strategic threshold was crossed by Aziz when he grabbed the Chinese and he was finally confronted because Beijing had pushed Islamabad Beijing was forced to react because an assertive section of Chinese society had taken the incident as “a test of the Communist Party’s backbone” Some critics sent “mocking packages of calcium pills” to the Chinese foreign office The Chinese ambassador in Islamabad Luo Zhaohui pursued the matter with great determination An expert on the region Luo got around unlike the average Chinese diplomat and approached the “influentials” who could help He was soon talking on the phone to Lal Masjid The state reached for its Taliban-friendly influentials and made them intercede with Aziz The intercession failed and the bearded elite of the faith withdrew in puzzlement little knowing Lal Masjid was heeding a far more important message from al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri: “This crime can only be washed away by repentance or blood… If you do not retaliate… Musharraf will not spare any of you Your salvation is only through jihad” At one point Aziz and his brother Ghazi seemed to relent allowing Luo to talk to the hostages and promised their release But nothing materialised Then the marathon five-hour telephone negotiation began with Musharraf himself interceding while the deputy commissioner and the senior superintendent of police in Islamabad begged and pledged “corrective action” against “mixed-sex massage parlours” According to Small the pledge clinched the deal The Chinese prisoners were released with Ghazi announcing: “We released them in view of Pakistan-China friendship After receiving a number of complaints regarding ‘sex business’ our students and people… took action that should have been taken by the government We greatly respect Pakistan-China friendship but it doesn’t mean that foreign women can come here and indulge in such vulgar activities” The Chinese women came out of the seminary wearing burqas Small observes: “Word leaked out that… China was attributing the instigation of the kidnappings to the influence of militants from China’s Uighur minority at Lal Masjid” What the Chinese knew was news to Pakistan so out-of-bounds was the Lal Masjid set-up After Operation Silence foreign and local warriors were found among the dead Of the dead 12 were Uyghurs Under General Raheel Sharif Pakistan has taken steps against terrorists but the battle for its internal sovereignty is not over Lal Masjid remains the symbol of this difficult transition when the minister in charge of security has to say that he can do nothing about it The writer is consulting editor ‘Newsweek Pakistan’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBeyond the power struggle succession battle cloak-and-dagger palace intrigue that marks the relationship between members of Uttar Pradesh’s first family two broad brush strokes are visible in the tussle between beta Akhilesh and baap Mulayam Singh Yadav A son trying desperately to emerge from the shadow of his father and establish his primacy over Samajwadi Party’s multiple power centres and an ageing patriarch determined to keep his flock together It may appear that the recent steps — quite astonishing and in full public view — taken by the SP chief are an attempt to prove to Akhilesh that he might be the UP chief minister seeking a re-election but Mulayam remains in every sense of the word his baap And that could be misleading The former CM is too seasoned a player in the game of thrones and too conversant with the caste and community equation in India’s largest state to let ego interfere with his sense of better judgement On the contrary Mulayam’s each decision — from repeatedly and publicly criticising son Akhilesh and asking him to ‘mend his ways’ to sacking him as the state president on Tuesday — has been carefully calibrated and is totally consistent with the larger need to prevent splintering of the Yadav clan no less than a dozen of whom are in active politics The SP patriarch has so far been able to maintain a miraculous balance of power between members of the family by deft distribution of government party or local body posts A January 2016 report in The Economic Times gives details about the three latest entrants into politics from Mulayam Singh Yadav family One was his nephew Abhishek Yadav elected as the chairman of Etawah Zila Panchayat body Niece Sandhya Yadav was another elected as chairman of Mainpuri Zila Panchayat Vandana Yadav another relative was the third She was elected as chairman of Hamirpur Zila Panchayat This according to the report follows the entry of two more relatives One is Mridula Yadav the mother of Mulayam’s nephew and Mainpuri MP Tej Pratap Yadav and Ajant Singh Yadav brother-in-law of Mulayam They were inducted as members of Block Development Council from Saifai and Chaubiya respectively UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav AFP This fragile equilibrium is easily upset when one power centre tries to impose its primacy over another The "sacking of Akhilesh" as the party’s state president therefore is more of an eyewash engineered by Mulayam to ensure that brother Shivpal Yadav stays within the fold This also is in conformity with his firm belief that the SP will be in a much better shape to tackle a complex election battle in 2017 by remaining united stressing on core organisationalstrengths and stitching strategic tie-ups Aware of the challenges posed by a resurgent BSP which may profit substantially from a Dalit uprising and a BJP that won’t give up without a fight the last thing Mulayam would want is a rebellion from Shivpal That such a possibility may arise became clear during recent Independence Day celebrations Mulayam dropped a bombshell by saying that his brother Shivpal known for organisational skills is apparently facing a conspiracy and should he leave the party would be doomed This in itself was extraordinary In party headed by him and a government headed by his son who had the temerity to hatch a conspiracy against Shivpal whose writ sometimes eclipses that of Akhilesh The day earlier Shivpal had threatened to resign alleging "rampant corruption in the UP government" according to a report in NDTV No prizes for guessing whom the barb was pointed at Mulayam moved in swiftly In full presence of media he appeared to side with his brother "Shivpal is working very hard A few people are against him If he quits then the sitiation for the party will become bad Half of the people will go with him" NDTV quoted him as saying Shivpal’s statement wasn’t a sudden one And few believe he was genuinely worried about "rampant" corruption in a government of which he was a key part What lay behind that veiled threat was the apparent humiliation he suffered at the postponement — at Akhilesh’s insistence — of a merger between SP and mafia-turned-politician Mukhtar Ansari’s Quami Ekta Dal (QED) As Ratan Mani Lal arguesin thisFirstpostpiece: "Differences of opinion between Akhilesh and Shivpal have come up on several occasions Notable among these is the choice of official to be appointed as the state’s chief secretary after Alok Ranjan’s term ended and the postponement of QED’s merger with the SP… Apparently Shivpal has been sulking ever since the QED fiasco as it involved a lot of efforts on his part to bring the outfit to the SP’s fold and the cancellation of the merger had led to huge embarrassment – if not humiliation – for Shivpal" That Akhilesh has been able to stall the merger with a party headed by a history-sheeter mafia don who reportedly has over 70 murder charges against him shows that he wants to carve his own identity as a chief minister with a "clean image" His open defiance of uncle Shivpal by sacking a chief secretary considered close to him and firing of two ministers against whom there have been corruption charges are attempts to stamp his authority over a government where his own position at times has been relegated to that of a quasi-chief minister But Akhilesh’s problem is that on his own he remains incapable of winning an election And herein lies the crux of the story Mulayam knows that SP’s political capital largely lies with him and to a certain extent with brother Shivpal who remains an influential figure His attempts to side with younger brother at the cost of antagonising his son is done with a belief that the brother may need assuaging The son will come around But will Akhilesh have the guts to be his own man Or is this defiance little more than a sideshow That remains the million-dollar question Pune: Divyanshu Ganatra lost his eye sight at the age of 19 to Glaucoma "When something like this happens it is traumatic and you go through all kind of depression and anger I think like everybody reacts to trauma my reaction to trauma was no different" he remembers Today Ganatra is the founder of Adventures Beyond Borders Foundation— an organisation that promotes inclusive and outdoor sports for persons with and without disability So how did he overcome his disability to become a Information Technology expert a renowned psychologist and a social entrepreneur "When I went for rehab they told me the best I could do was make furniture or become a telephone operator My question to them in the 90s was that everybody’s talking about IT everyone’s talking about computers why can’t I do something with computers And they said well you’ve to accept reality You are blind you can’t see" says Ganatra Undeterred Ganatra studied computersand built a highly successful career in IT which spanned over six years But the need to do something different coupled with a fascination for the human mind prompted him to leave the industry to become a psychologist "During this time was when we were starting to program computers to do what the human brain does You start reading about the human brain reading up about human dynamics and I got so fascinated with that part of how our brain works and functions I was so awestruck and I fell in love I quit IT and I just wanted to study the brain and that’s how I got into mental health psychology and studying cognitive neuroscience" adds Ganatra The love for outdoors which he developed in his childhood pushed Ganatra back in adventure sports some 12-13 years after losing his eyesight In 2014 he became the first blind solo paraglider "The whole world wrote in saying this is amazing this is inspirational and what I learned through that is that people were writing me off as an exception and that’s not what this is about How can I use adventure sports to help change attitudes Attitude was the biggest challenge I’ve always faced So I decided that this could be one great way of changing people’s way of attitude towards persons with disabilities" says Ganatra The desire to use sports to bring people with and without disabilities saw his found Adventure Beyond Barriers Through the non-profit venture Ganatra and his team continues build empathy and shatter stereotypes "There are multiple ways in which you can use your sphere of influence to build an inclusive world And I believe what this world needs is empathy and for us to celebrate our differences And that’s what I strive to do every single day" concludes Ganatra Written

that brought the phrase “hook up” back into fashion and lingo and which importantly didn’t seek to judge casual sex one night stands or just frivolous dating Until now The Indian user has somehow managed to give the impression to Tinder that there is a need for another matchmaking/matrimonial portal The latest ad by the company in India has a mother “swiping right” to her daughter’s choice of a necklace with her kurta hinting at her approval of the match The daughter also makes it a point to let us know that she will be back home by evening No hooking up mother Apart from the fact that the ad is badly scripted and in desperate need of better actors it forces you to wonder why Tinder wants to be the next shaadicom Why is the marketing technique of the company tilting towards saccharine sweet fairy tales Even the app’s Facebook page has a post with a photo of a beaming recently engaged couple with gooey quotes on how they met on Tinder Cute Humans of New York style tale sure But this
