exclusion from Olympic qualifiers points to deeper problems Not for the first timea team selection has raised questions in Indian hockeyquickly snowballing into a controversy Since the final squad of 18 for the Olympic qualifiers was announced early this weekthe list has divided those who follow the sport While several senior players have been omitted for reasons ranging from lack of fitness to their inability to fit into the current system of playit is the absence of one name Arjun Halappa that has forced the team management to go on a damage-control mode While the coach Michael Nobbs tried to defend the decisionHalappas exclusion has triggered a debate on issues like managementtransparency and communication between players and officials No clear reason has been given for dropping the 31-year-old veteran with over 300 international caps and 11 years of experience The coach claims there are no fitness issues and that the decision was taken by selectors on formwhile the selection committee insists that everyone was in favour of retaining Halappa in the final squad but did not press the issue simply because the coach and the trainer David John insisted the player wasnt fully fit The compromise formula of naming Halappa a stand-by wasperhapsa bigger insult to his abilities and contribution to the sport While passing the blame has been a constant feature of Indian hockeythe background to the selection this time makes it intriguing Halappa was among the prominent faces during the players strike in 2010 and has been among the most vocal supporters of the rebel World Series Hockey (WSH)being among the five players who attended a WSH press conference in August last year That incident has all but ended the career of Adrian DSouzaundoubtedly still the best goalkeeper in the country Back thenas nowNobbs had insisted that form and fitness were the only criteria for selectionbut was unable to come up with any credible explanation for DSouzas omission as well Halappa is only another victim of ego tussle between the Indian Hockey Federation and Hockey India The fact is that the hockey management is not looking beyond February 26the final day of the qualifiers Has an impossibly easy group in the qualifiers (Canada happen to be Indias closest competitor) given the management the freedom to pick and choose playersthinking that even a raw recruit may be able to hold off the opposition That is a dangerous trendfor it shows a complete lack of respect for opponents and gives a false sense of confidence to youngsters who may be talented but lack exposure There are other issues simmering Indianswho finally appeared to be playing as a team under Spanish coach Jose Brasaare now a fragmented lot Many players have said they are upset with Nobbss way of functioning One of them whointerestinglyis considered to be in the good books of the coachsays planning has gone out of the window Some say the trainer David John is the one who calls the shots in the teamwith

run-ins with David in the past few months Halappas exclusion apartthe team composition has come under the scanner Despite authorities insisting that defence remains Indias key concernthe team does not have any proven defender but three drag-flickers The lack of experience sticks out in the most crucial department the midfield with Sardar Singh the only one with enough international experience And Halappas replacement in the team happens to be Kothajit Singhno doubt talentedbut with just two games (during the recent series against South Africa) under his belt Not enoughone would presumeto

in Uttar Pradesh on the economy Related News Narendra Modi’s political narrative first developed in Gujarat and now offered at the national level is here to stay One needs to understand the narrative well to expose it and to offer a counter Old ideas of secularism and social justice are not enough to fight Modi; an innovative package of new and non-conventional ideas and practices is necessary to oppose him Economic arguments more than socio-political analysis would help to puncture Modi’s communal agenda For instance Modi won office promising growth good governance national security and financial stability The last would include controlling prices generating employment and developing infrastructure The claims were bogus but he did succeed in convincing voters that he would deliver on his promises Has he delivered Modi promised growth and employment but look at the impact of communal riots in Uttar Pradesh on the economy Take for instance the riots in Moradabad a hub of the brassware industry that annually exports products worth Rs 2500 crore Muslims constitute a majority of the labour force in this industry while the factories are mostly owned by non-Muslims The Hindu-Muslim tension engineered by the BJP in view of the bypolls has divided the society on religious lines My concern is not who pelted the stones first and if the police handled the situation the right way My worry is that Moradabad’s brass industry has been badly hit The city is losing business as Muslim workers do not report to work due to the lack of trust in non-Muslim factory owners Who will compensate the industry for this massive loss a direct outcome of the riots A similar situation prevails in Saharanpur a traditional wood and furniture business centre As in Moradabad Muslim artisans constitute the vast majority of workers here while shops and factories are mostly owned by Hindus and Sikhs In a recent report Assocham estimated that the furniture business lost Rs 244 crore in just 10 days due to the riots How can Modi who could not prevent his partymen from fanning communal tension and the resultant destruction of the business climate in these two cities revive the Indian economy But let us not fool ourselves Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat when over 2000 Muslims were killed in 2002 Yet he successfully sold the so-called Gujarat growth story to the world So Modi’s politics has nothing to do with growth development or good governance: it is based on the polarisation of votes The real Gujarat model is nothing but winning elections by polarising voters along communal lines He has done it repeatedly in Gujarat in the past 12 years In the last general election Modi started with the good governance slogan and finally divided the nation with inflammatory rhetoric Unfortunately we lose the plot when we merely attack his communal agenda He is happy when his critics highlight the Gujarat riots because it suits his politics of polarisation Not donning a Muslim cap may be an unbecoming act in our view but it is the perfect gesture for his brand of politics Felicitating the Muzaffarnagar riot-accused may have disturbed some people but Modi is aware that such acts pay rich political dividends The Sangh Parivar’s communal agenda primarily revolves around three symbols: the gai the Ganga and the Gita Modi and the BJP play politics with them The secular opinion must be careful while commenting on matters involving these When Modi gifted a copy of the Gita to the Japanese emperor no eyebrows were raised since all of us regard the Gita to be one of the greatest texts in the world However while presenting the gift Modi commented that “secular friends in my country will raise a hue and cry” The comment was unwarranted and disgraceful His intention was to provoke secular-minded people Expect Modi and the Sangh Parivar to lay such traps Similarly the Ganga is part of our national heritage The river belongs to the whole country not just the BJP After all the Ganga Action Plan was conceptualised when the late Rajiv Gandhi was prime minister If the Modi government decides to take this mission forward with a new name the opposition should support it Any opposition could be turned into a communal issue With regard to the gai the BJP has time and again raked up the issue of cow slaughter in the name of cow protection The fact is from Atal Bihari Vajpayee to Modi NDA governments have not hesitated to facilitate beef exports However since the cow is the most revered animal in India one must avoid any confrontation on the issue to prevent the BJP from taking political advantage A recent incident illustrates this Recently in Ghaziabad after the Modi government came to power the Go Rakshak Samiti an offshoot of the RSS started raising the issue of cow protection Every other day the samiti would hold dharnas and their delegation would petition the local administration demanding a ban on cow slaughter Local newspapers would write about the petitions daily The campaign slowly led to communal tension in the district Some local Muslim youth recognised the ploy of the Sangh Parivar and formed a group called Muslim Maha Sabha and demanded a check on cow slaughter in Ghaziabad With the possibility of a communal confrontation lost the issue fizzled out It is not my contention that one must support the demands made by the Sangh Parivar but one should be able to see through them The secularism versus communalism debate needs to be articulated differently to ensure that one does not walk into Modi’s traps Doublespeak and double standards are the hallmark of Modi’s governance He made a passionate appeal from the ramparts of the Red Fort that there should be a moratorium on communal violence for the next 10 years so that the country could focus on development Soon after Yogi Adityanath the BJP MP from UP notorious for spewing venom on minorities and disrupting social harmony was appointed chief of the BJP campaign for the UP bypolls Modi must be asked about the contradiction between speech and action During the general election campaign Modi created a frenzy in the name of Pakistan The ground reality is that more than 50 jawans have been killed on the border in the last 100 days What has Modi done What happened to his aggressive nationalism The BJP runs sinister campaigns to wreak the social fabric of our nation in the name of a utopian Hindu rashtra or a national language while Modi maintains a deliberate silence He must be made to reveal his stand on these party campaigns in order to expose the doublespeak in his governance narratives For today’s youth only aspirations matter They dream of “achhe din” irrespective of whether the provider is communal or secular It is necessary to explain to the youth that communal polarisation would destroy their dreams of “achhe din” The writer is a former MP and a senior Congress leader For all the latest Opinion

significant not only for India’s foreign policy and inbound investment but also forfortunes of his party in this year’s Bihar Assembly election On Sunday the PM visited the UAE’s largest and the world’s third-largest mosque — the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi Far from being a mere sight-seeing trip the weight of the mosque visit was not lost on India nor the country’s largest opposition party at the centre “I’m happy that a person who did not wish to wear a skull cap is visiting a mosque it is a good sign” came less-than-reticent Congress leader Digvijaya Singh’s back-handed complimenton Twitter The tweetwasan allusion to an incident in September 2011 when Modi refused to wear a skull cap offered by a Muslim cleric Wresting control of Bihar and the 16 Rajya Sabha seats it controls is a priority for the BJP this year While the Dalit vote is clearly crucial to winning elections in Bihar and a major clause in seat-sharing equations in the state (See this Firstpost report) Muslims comprise a potentially game-changing 17 percent of the state’s population And ever since the country’s Muslim community shrugged off its reservations about the BJP in the 2014 General Election the party has been on a mission to bring India’s largest minority on board Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi on Monday PTI From setting an ambitious target of recruiting between three and four lakh Muslim members in Bihar in 2015 to Modi’s 18-day-blitz in June when he “paid his first visit to a country with a Muslim majority; back in India met a delegation of 30 Muslim ‘leaders’ interacted with envoys from Muslim countries and in another first tweeted in Urdu on Thursday to greet the community for Ramzaan” the BJP is leaving no stone unturned The visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque could beanother aspect of the Bihar strategy But thisraises the question: why visit the world’s third largest mosque Popular wisdom dictates that bigger is better Aside from the fact that non-Muslims are not allowed to visit the mosques at Mecca and Madina (the largest and second-largest in the world) the decision is also linked to the choice of country The UAE is a reasonably safe choice as Modi’s first West Asian destination A large number of Indians settled therenotwithstanding the country is presently safe from terrorism and largely uncontroversial compared to Saudi Arabia (which also happens to be home to a significant number of Indians and an important trade partner) Qatar or Palestine With the destination more-or-less decided time it would seem was of the essence The sitting Bihar Legislative Assembly’s term concludes on 29 November 2015 which gives Modi’s party less than three months to ratchet up the required support to dethrone Chief Minister Nitish Kumar’s Grand Secular Alliance The PM’s itinerary is already jam-packed with a visit to the US — for the UN General Assembly and engagements on the West Coast — pencilled in for September Then comes the India-Africa Forum Summit in October — before or after which Modi is likely to hold bilateral meetings having already invited Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi All of this will precede an incredibly hectic November during which apart from visits to Malaysia for the East Asia Summit and Turkey for the G20 Summit are yet-to-be-finalised visits to the UK Israel Palestine Singapore and possibly Saudi Arabia Of course it could all be settled by then with rumours that the four- or five-phase election could be held before Diwalidoing the rounds With time running out the actual planning and organising of this visit — which according to The Hindu was ‘sudden’ — would have to happen very quickly The newspaper reported: “the decision to go to UAE came last Wednesday (5 August) As a result South Block has had to scramble to its feet to make arrangements and organise security Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar and Secretary Anil Wadhwa rushed to UAE on Sunday (9 August) and met with Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed after holding foreign office consultations on the outcome of the visit” A unique aspect of this particular visit is the fact that it is his first single-destination trip outside South Asia where he has made standalone visits to Nepal Bhutan and Bangladesh A staunch proponent of packing multiple destinations into one visit Modi had said to Hindustan Times ahead of his April tour of France Germany and Canada “I’m from Ahmedabad where we have a saying ‘single fare double journey’” While it’s quite likely that the External Affairs Ministry was unable to find another destination to tack onto Modi’s itinerary at such short notice what’s more likely is that this was the only window available for what could prove to be an essential visit Already on the receiving end of suggestions that he should spend less time abroad and more on domestic issues Modi will want to make each international foray tick multiple boxes Which is probably why aside from trying to boost his party’s chances in Bihar Modi also took the time to give his traditional constituency a takeaway from the

standoff It has also been alleged that some of his followers had been held hostage in the ashram during the standoff Rampal’s followers during the clash with security forces had used stones acid and
