most memorable line in Justice M S Liberhan’s very forgettable commission report is where he coins the phrase “pseudo moderate”to counter to L K Advani’s “pseudo secular” argument during his rath yatra campaign for the Ram temple Both terms are particularly relevant in Indiawhere the politics of wooing minorities has degenerated into tokenism and meaningless gestures Grand speeches rather than genuine efforts for the development and progress of the minorities is the norm The entire debate on secularismcommunalism and moderation is replete with hypocrisy Justice Liberhan has a point when he dubs Advani ‘pseudo moderate’though it is unfair to use the expression for Atal Bihari Vajpayee After all Vajpayee had made it very plain to his party that he was unhappy over converting the Ram Mandir issue into a political campaign Vajpayee refused to take part in the Rath Yatra and was not present in Ayodhya on the fateful December 6 when the mosque came down Advani’s position is different He openly appealed to religious sentiment during his much publicised Rath Yatra from Somnath to Ayodhya and made the issue of building a temple at the spot the theme of his fiery speeches He was present when the kar sevaks were bringing down the mosquewhich is why his subsequent tears and claim that it was the saddest day of his lifesound a little hollow A shrewd politician should have known that if you sow the wind you can expect to reap a whirlwind Advani supporters try to make the point that his tussle with the RSS on the issue of declaring the founder of PakistanMohammed Ali Jinnah secularis a sign of his moderation Butif Advani genuinely wanted to project a liberal imagehe should have selected a more worthy cause He could have displayed his disapproval over the Gujarat state government’s failure to protect Muslims in 2002 or protest against the attacks on Christians in Orissa For that matterthe man whose reputation he is so keen to protectJinnahwas not particularly secular but rather a “pseudo- communalist” He aped the British in his life style and appreciated their liberal philosophy He ignored Islamic teaching regarding liquorfood and social norms But Jinnah also played on religious sentiments when he sniffed an opportunity to exploit the communal divide to further his personal political ambitions If Advani is a pseudo moderateso too is Justice M S Liberhan If the judge was genuinely exercised about the mosque demolitionhe could have easily completed his job in six monthsor a year at the most Instead he dragged on the commission for 17 yearspresumably simply so that he could enjoy the perks and salary that came with his position While using the strongest possible words to indict those he considered culpable for the crimeLiberhan strangely has not recommended penal action against any of those named Nor has he has passed strictures against previous Congress Central governments who are also guilty to some degree In fact the sobriquet “pseudo moderate” could well be applied to both Rajiv Gandhi’s and Narasimha Rao’s governments There was no call for the Rajiv Gandhi government to remove the locks on the Babri mosque in 1987 and open a can of worms which was bound to stoke communal passions The mosque was sealed for nearly 40 years by a court order and opening it was simply a sop for the Hindu voters to balance striking down the Supreme Court judgment in the Shah Bano case in order to assuage orthodox Muslim sentiment People now forget that long before the mosque was demolishedan informal shrine had already been installed under the roof of the mosque and there was a long queue of Hindu pilgrims daily In effect a mandir was already in place The Congressnot just Narasimha Rao alone who is a convenient scapegoathas therefore also to share part of the blame for subsequent series of events It is also a failure of a succession of governments that even after 17 years no one has been convicted in a court of law on the demolition case In factthe cases could well drag on for another decadeby which time many of the principal accused will have passed away “Pseudo secularists””pseudo liberals “and “pseudo communalists” are those who believe that they can milk a situation to their advantage without any genuine concern for the people whose cause they claim to be espousing It is unfortunate that in our country categorisation of people as communal or secular is decided on the basis of ones speechesnot one’s actions The criteria is a person’s point of view on the common civil codehow the history of medieval India should be writtenwhether you are in favour of providing more Urdu schoolsgiving free travel for Hajare agreeable to occasionally donning a Muslim prayer cap et al And many politicians easily earn the secular label simply by pandering to orthodox elements in the Muslim community A more genuine litmus test of secularism would be whether you are prepared to allow your daughter to marry a Muslim A truly secular politician is one who is concerned that minorities are not just secure but also that they are given equal opportunities in every sphere I find it strangefor instancethat the same politicians who for years have raised the slogan of Babri Masjid and the Liberhan Commission to demonstrate their secular spiritgenerally shy away from questioning the government on why the Ranganath Mishra Commission report has been put into cold storage for the last two years The commission has recommended quotas to Muslims and Christians who fall within the Dalit category and fixing quotas for minorities in employmentin actuality far more meaningful measures for the community than anything the Liberhan Commission has to offer For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

ruining India’s economy and deservedly so But what has remained relatively out of sight is the damage it has done by weakening both external and internal security systems It’s very fortunate and so is India that there hasn’t been a major security challenge since November 26 2008 and we have also had an unusual decade of external peace only the second in our independent history That is why the UPA seems to be getting away with the greatest muddle-headed damage it has done But tragedies like the navy’s earlier this week remind us not to be forgiving It is consistent with the UPA’s diminution of the authority of the prime minister his office and the cabinet system itself but the really serious harm it has done to internal and external security leadership has severe implications In our cabinet system the most important and powerful body is supposed to be the Cabinet Committee on Security or CCS It includes the most powerful ministers — home defence finance and external affairs besides the prime minister — but the UPA has reduced it to inconsequentiality You take a poll even in a college on the UPA’s most incompetent ministers The winners and by some distance will be its home (Sushilkumar Shinde) and defence (AK Antony) ministers One reason Salman Khurshid may not do too well in this vote is that in these distracted times many may not even be conscious that he is our external affairs minister and not a sex and virility specialist He has ably carried forward his predecessor SM Krishna’s tradition of reducing this to the office of India’s chief consular officer who competes for airtime with the ministry’s spokesman any time an Indian student is beaten up in Australia or a maid dares to complain against her boss in an Indian mission But think about this Here are three of the five members of your venerable CCS One can’t ever take a decision (Antony) one should never speak in public as the republic’s home minister (Shinde) and the third Khurshid is inconsequential The rot is not personalised but systemic institutional and political From the day the UPA came to power in 2004 it somehow decided to use the CCS as a kind of attic to hide its castaways Between P Chidambaram and Pranab Mukherjee the finance ministry at least had two ministers who exercised authority All of the other three ministries were cursed from the very beginning I have to thank the head of Express News Service Pranab Dhal Samanta who is arguably India’s best-informed reporter on politics and governance for helping me put this embarrassing decade in perspective The Congress chose Shivraj Patil (can you forget him) as its first home minister because it was said Sonia Gandhi trusted him so much she may even have made him prime minister He was a disaster as the Indian Mujahideen gathered strength under his watch armed Maoists grew into a real menace and he kept lecturing us on root causes It is an unkind thing to say because personally he is a genuinely warm politician but probably his only contribution was that he made the home ministry’s aircraft available to Sonia often enough Each time a terror incident happened Sonia travelled with him It took 26/11 to remind the UPA that the home minister’s was a serious job It moved Chidambaram there But just as things seemed to be improving it figured the crisis in finance was more pressing and brought in Shinde He simply turned the clock back He joined Antony in opposing even cosmetic improvements in the AFSPA thereby changing the home ministry’s line He also mothballed the NCTC and any other anti-terror initiatives and has reminded us of his existence lately by promising to crush electronic media We have never heard him hold out such a threat to the Lashkar-e-Toiba Indian Mujahideen or to be more politically correct Abhinav Bharat or the RSS If for seven years out of 10 the home ministry has been drifting external affairs has done only somewhat better But just about The UPA started with Natwar Singh (remember him) who was a family faithful and Nehruvian commissar to bring back ideological purity and save all mankind — not just India — from Westoxification Until Volcker outed him He had such a rude wake-up call his son is now a BJP MLA in Rajasthan Mukherjee held the job briefly but let everybody know his heart was not in it Then came SM Krishna who scored an unforgettable first for India’s diplomacy by picking up the Portuguese foreign minister’s speech at the UN General Assembly and continuing to read it until a distraught Hardeep Puri (then our ambassador to the UN and now in the BJP) nudged and saved him — and us — further embarrassment Krishna was not given the job because he was most suited for it It was to keep him out of Karnataka Between rebuilding the party in that crucial state and leading India’s foreign policy the Congress had its priorities in place As it showed subsequently by moving a reluctant Khurshid up the ladder into the same job After the UP debacle it seems he wanted to leave the cabinet and help Rahul Gandhi with party work and the prime minister wanted a law minister of his choosing The most convenient thing was to move Khurshid from law to external affairs On such profound considerations were the members of the UPA’s CCS chosen It must be our funniest government ever It reigned by sidelining the prime minister and kicking its nobodies upstairs to the most exalted decision-making body of all Defence has had just two ministers One of them Antony is India’s longest serving in that position You can write a very sad book on the woeful state of preparedness and equipment in our defence forces the naval tragedies being a recurring and unfortunate reminder He was put there for his clean image which in fairness has stayed intact But his proven track record for indecision also remains unblemished He banned three-fourths of the world’s armament manufacturers on mere rumour Yet his ministry got hit by a mega scandal in Agusta helicopters and several others from Eurocopter to Tatra Sure there was no Bofors repeat But you want to talk about a scandal bigger than Bofors under his watch It is his ministry’s failure to induct a single new artillery gun in 10 years And his record has three other firsts: a service chief taking his government to court the sinking of a large submarine in harbour and now the resignation of a serving navy chief As their government winds up to go home all you can say now is that if Manmohan Singh or Sonia Gandhi decided to write their UPA memoir it would be a bestseller just for its

Reuters | Rio De Janeiro | Published: August 10 2016 4:06 am Russia argues it is taking steps to clean up sport and is being singled out for political reasons (Source: Reuters) Top News Russian swimming chief Vladimir Salnikov said on Tuesday the atmosphere surrounding his team at the Olympics reminded him of the Cold War and criticised American breaststroke champion Lilly King for attacking the integrity of her Russian rival In a tense showdown on Monday evening King defeated Russia’s Yulia Efimova who has twice been suspended for doping violations and stood by comments describing her as a drug cheat The Russian was loudly booed by the Rio crowd “I think the whole atmosphere is very strange” said Salnikov president of the Russian Swimming Federation who won four swimming gold medals in the 1980s during a period of US-Soviet tensions that prompted the two superpowers to boycott each other’s Olympics He said the situation now was similar to the past “when we had the situation with the Cold War and everything was like Russia (versus) America and a lot of people were putting oil on the flame to make it higher” “This is another round but I think we will survive it” he told Reuters in an interview More than 100 Russian athletes including the entire track and field and weightlifting teams were banned from the Rio Olympics after independent reports for the World Anti-Doping Agency found evidence of widespread state-sponsored cheating Russia argues it is taking steps to clean up sport and is being singled out for political reasons The issue of doping overshadowed the build-up to the Olympics and far from dying down since they opened on Friday has escalated as swimmers like King and Australian freestyle champion Mack Horton have directly branded rivals as cheats The controversy is personified in the figure of Efimova who has been booed at each of three appearances and broke down in tears after finishing second to King on Monday night At an awkward news conference alongside Efimova the 19-year-old King said: “I do think it is a victory for clean sport and just to show that you can do it while … competing clean your whole life” “NEED TO BE HONOURABLE” Salnikov said the American was entitled to her opinion but noted that Efimova had been cleared to compete last week by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) the highest appeal tribunal and was therefore fully entitled to take part He implied King’s comments were unsporting “Does she consider the CAS decision is wrong” he asked “She has a long road to go in sport I hope and I think in the end she will understand there are certain rules there’s a procedure that regulates the participation of athletes Of course she has the right to her opinion but you need to be objective and you need to be honourable” Efimova told reporters on Monday she had not slept for weeks because of the stress of not knowing whether or not she would be able to swim in Rio “Efimova has been through a very severe ordeal and in an atmosphere of distrust and uncertainty I think she showed very strong character – resilience and focus – and so I think she deserved her medal” said Salnikov “She has come through very tough times and I’m sure she will cope” Efimova was banned between October 2013 and February 2015 after testing positive for traces of the anabolic steroid DHEA She was also briefly suspended after testing positive for meldonium earlier this year She is due to compete again on Wednesday in the heats of the women’s 200m breaststroke in which she won an Olympic bronze medal in London in 2012 Salnikov said the stress and uncertainty of the build-up had affected the Russian team as a whole but his athletes were bearing up well “I think most of them have withstood this test” he said “What
