Later in the contest,Courtois had to be on hand to save a fierce strike by Elneny and then a long-range from Granit Xhaka but the equaliser came when an impressive Kolasinac a close-season signing from Schalke 04 and substitute for Per Mertersacker headed the ball home For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsLondon: Considering that I only ever get hate mail from Hindutva supporters I was slightly surprised when instead what I found nestling in my inbox last week was a polite message from a high- profile RSS figure whom I had never met before asking to meet me He was passing through London he wrote and wondered if we could have a chat So whisper whisper we met at a plush central London hotel where he was staying (the right-wing Urdu press could go to town with “Muslim Journalist in Secret Rendezvous with RSS Leader") and for nearly an hour –over cappuccinos and Scottish cookies– we danced around the "Muslim Question " Not so much as ideological adversaries though both were acutely conscious of where the other was coming from but as characters in a scriptless play trying to make sense of the plot we were landed with To cut to the chase it seems that the RSS is trying to engage in a version of "back channel diplomacy" to open up a dialogue with Muslims The move is propelled by younger elements in the organisation who favour an engagement with liberal Muslims even though they are not clear about the terms of this engagement In fact it is more a stab at sussing out the Muslim mood than a concrete strategy to reach out to them PTI The problem is that like the modernizers in the Muslim community the RSS modernizers have their own hardliners from the old school of RSS orthodoxy to contend with So they are treading cautiously and the idea at this stage appears to be simply to set the ball rolling by exploring informal channels of communication between the two sides As far as I could gather the RSS is not involving itself officially or directly in any such move leaving it to individuals and front organisations to take a punt Thus an ostensibly independent think-tank run by a senior BJP leader with close RSS links plans to bring together Muslim "intellectuals" for a brainstorming as part of a conference on international security etc in Goa later this year The conference will have the organisational backing of Goa’s BJP government Leading liberal Muslims are being lined up for the occasion which will allow them to air their views on a range of issues around Hindu-Muslim relations; and to interact with representatives from the "other" side Sources acknowledge that it is a small initiative but see it as a much- needed attempt to break the ice Cynics might dismiss it as a gimmick but as the old saw goes "jaw jaw" is always better than a state of permanent hostility Sheer exposure to the opposite viewpoint can work as a catalyst and lead to a better understanding To use the British store Tesco’s slogan: "Every little helps" The view that this might be a good time to push for better relations with Muslims flows broadly from two factors: (1) a recognition of the changes happening in the Muslim community especially among the youth who have become more pragmatic in making political choices and are fighting against old ideological positions; and (2 ) the deep Muslim disillusionment with Congress-style secular politics which has done them no favours and yet made them look like beneficiaries of "appeasement" This according to RSS peaceniks is the moment to tap into the Muslim anger against secular parties There is also a belief that the chances of a rapprochement with Muslims are better when the BJP is in power and can afford to be more restrained in its anti "minority-ism" rhetoric than when it is in opposition and it suits it politically to take a more belligerent line Just as its approach to Pakistan changes depending on whether it is in opposition or in government Meanwhile there is a feeling of vindication on the Hindu Right that finally Muslims have realised what "we" had always told them –that they have been used in the name of secularism to get votes This of course is an oversimplification of a complex issue and an attempt by Hindu nationalists to absolve themselves of their own role in polarising community relations and pushing Muslims into the arms of the Congress But that’s another debate For now what’s important is that there’s a recognition of the need to reset relations with Muslims however tentative the effort maybe But any great expectations must be tempered by the unhappy history of previous such attempts by both sides There was that honeymoon during the Emergency when senior Jamaat-e-Islami and RSS leaders got famously cosy after being forced to spend several months in jail together But the much-trumpeted "understanding" reached behind bars in the face of a common "enemy” soon evaporated once they came out and were back in their comfort zones And subsequently their relations were to plummet to a new low following the demolition of Babri Masjid and the 2002 Gujarat riots Then ahead of the 2012 UP assembly elections former RSS chief KS Sudarshan sought to cultivate Muslim clerics but again the bonhomie (remember those TV images) proved shortlived There were a few other — half-hearted and less publicised moves — but nothing came out of them either because of the level at which they were pitched and the quality of interlocutors The line of approach this time is different — indirect more subtle and crucially not aimed at creating headlines It is not happening in the glare of TV cameras and most importantly it is not a "deal" between the mullahs and RSS leadership There are no mediators; it is pitched directly at the people; and is not prompted by immediate electoral considerations But will it succeed And how is success to be judged Answers to these questions are tied up with the willingness of the two sides to transcend their historic mutual prejudices And here I will repeat what I wrote in The Hindu in an article for which I was skewered by both groups including several well-meaning secular and liberal Hindus The problem that Muslims have with the BJP is … that it tends to look down upon them and treat them as outsiders whom it has to tolerate because of political compulsions This mindset must change As for what Muslims need to do to bridge the divide it will require a huge leap of faith for them to embrace a party that rightly or wrongly they see as congenitally hostile But for starters they should shed their blind anti-BJPism To some degree that is already happening Disillusioned with secular parties and driven by sheer pragmatism they now have a more open mind when it comes to voting No longer do they see the BJP as ‘untouchable’ a process which would have gained greater traction if Gujarat 2002 had not happened But meanwhile let’s get on with talking and listening to each other It is better than sniping from the sidelines even if in the end it yields nothing Soon after coming to power in 2014 the Narendra Modi government decided to honour the outgoing UPA government’s announcement on Lieutenant-General Dalbir Suhag’s elevation as India’s army chief There was much speculation as his predecessor General VK Singh who had done everything under his power to stop Suhag from getting the top job was now not only in the BJP but had been elected to Parliament Putting all speculation to rest Modi decided to honour the well-established convention of the senior-most officer getting the top job and appointed Suhag However two years later the decision to appoint Lieutenant-General Bipin Rawat as the next army chief superceding two highly respected and competent officers has come as a shock to many in the armed forces Probably for the first time two successive chiefs come from the same regiment — Gurkha Rifles Interestingly Rawat’s appointment as army chief comes days after Pakistan appointed GeneralQamar Javed Bajwa as their new chief both of them served in Congo as part of the UN Peacekeeping Force under General Bikram Singh who later became India’s army chief File image of Lieutenant-General Bipin Rawat Getty Images Rawat’s appointment has bypassed two senior officers Lieutenant-General Praveen Bakshi commander-in-chief Eastern Command — a highly respected officer who was seen as a natural successor to Suhag Across all ranks the Indian Army looked forward to Bakshi’s appointment because of his exemplary credentials and the enormous respect he commands among both officers and men The other officer superseded is commander-in-chief Southern Command Lieutenant-General PM Hariz also held in high esteem Why did the government supersede two officers to appoint Rawat The real reason will never be known and the explanation put forward by the government is far from convincing The government explanation that Rawat has more experience in tackling counter-insurgency and of high altitude warfare sounds pretty facile After all no army chief leads formations to battle Bakshi as C-in-C of the Eastern Command is responsible for all counter-insurgency operations along the China border and in the North East region He has served armoured brigades in Jammu and Kashmir and the western sector At a time when parochial interests dictate many decisions the appointment of Rawat is bound to keep speculators busy for a long time There is media speculation that Bakshi might be in for a more coveted job that of the CDS or Combined Defence Services Chief a post which has been debated for several years but no political party has put its final stamp of approval? around five flights were diverted from Mumbai airport due to traffic congestion at the airport, Related News Nine Delhi police officials have been booked in the killing of Manoj Vashisht who died in an alleged fake police encounter at a restaurant in Central Delhi on May 16. “And as usual @diljitdosanjh totally wins you over with his simplicity and charm!345 million fan following.
