here it’s about a political party” said Girish Juyal national organizing convener of MRM “The statement may be Verma’s personal view which might have arisen due to his personal observation of the situation in his constituency It can’t be universal But now with Modiji’s leadership as a PM and Indreshji spearheading the Muslim Rashtriya Manch the perception among Muslims has witnessed a change Due to several initiatives undertaken by the central government especially for the youth the Muslim community has got more integrated and getting closer to BJP” added Juyal Besides MRM the academicians and experts on Islamic studies have also strongly dismissed Verma’s statement against Muslim voters “99% of Muslims are nationalist and pro-India and identify themselves as Indians but it’s also true that 99% of Islamic clerics and Muslim leaders believe only in Islamic globalization At practical level Indian Muslims are diverse in their life-style and identify themselves as patriots whereas at theoretical level they identify themselves with the homogenous global Islamic group What the BJP MP has said is practically not true” observed Tufail Ahmad Executive Director at Open Source Institute a Delhi-based think tank on Islamic studies However Zafar Sareshwala chancellor of Maulana Azad National Urdu University is more scathing in his remarks “The statement shows the perverse mindset of the MP He should learn from PM Narendra Modi and his party president Amit Shah who have worked towards integration of the Muslim community in these two-and-half years period The PM said in the Parliament that no one should either ask for or give certificate of nationalism By making such a statement against the community he has displayed his ignorance in public” Sareshwala remarked Quoting the poll data from Modi’s native state Gujarat and the 2014 Lok Sabha elections Sareshwala added “The skepticism about the Muslim community’s reservations about voting for the BJP was laid to rest during Gujarat polls in 2012 followed by the general election in 2014 In Gujarat assembly election nearly 25% Muslims had voted for Modiji and he won for the third time Similarly in general election more number of Muslims voted for BJP than ever Given this fact the BJP MP himself is damaging the ethos built-up by the BJP than anybody else” New Delhi: The Congress on Wednesday termed Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s comment that Congress and Hardik Patel-led PAAS were "deceiving each other" on quotas as "laughable" adding that "it will do everything within the constitutional framework" "It is funny situation It is laughable because at the moment we are not in power So we cannot show any promise in terms of concrete situation" said Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi "What has been done will be by several quarters within the constitutional framework and will be fully in conformity with constitutional principles But today we are out of power" he added Finance Minister Arun Jaitley at Ahmedabad on Monday Twitter @arunjaitley "The funny part of this comment of the finance minister is that where his own party is in power – for example in Rajasthan – every possible kind of excess is going on "They don’t have to promise there they are the government There they have proved that 50 per cent be damned 51 per cent be damned 55 per cent be damned every kind of reservation is promised right left and centre" said Singhvi "Let us not talk double speak let us not be hypocritical We have said again and again that unlike the BJP we are law-abiding and we will do within the constitutional framework" Jaitley on Wednesday mocked the understanding reached between Congress and Hardik Patel-led PAAS on reservation for Patidars saying it amounts to "deceiving each other" because quotas cannot exceed the constitutional ceiling of 50 per cent download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Chandigarh | Published: April 15, India limited overs captain MS Dhoni in action against Australia.

that’s the cricketer we are talking about; that’s the loveable marketable player we are talking about He is in the Sachin Tendulkar category If you are in the Tendulkar category when it comes to marketing the game of cricket you are special” Sample this: This was Sachin Tendulkar walking out at the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the Boxing Day Test in 2011 Not for the first time Tendulkar was greeted with wild cheers from a capacity crowd on foreign soil Granted a good percentage of fans for India’s away matches are usually Indian expats and tourists and this was expected to be the last time Tendulkar played in Australia But the adoration Tendulkar received from fans around the world was truly remarkable However what AB de Villiers has shown on this tour of India just as remarkable He is doing what very few international players have managed to in their careers – hold the complete attention of Indian fans while playing in India Almost every post-match presentation ceremony after the matches in the ODI series began with Sanjay Manjrekar asking AB de Villiers how does it feel to hear his name chanted in every ground “Unbelievable” was ABD’s invariable answer At the Wankhede in Mumbai during the fifth ODI there was a poster celebrating AB de Villiers’ ability to play shots to all corners of the ground – Mr 360 as he is called – and that in the stands which is a sea of blue jerseys ABD pictwittercom/0sYL1fSc5w — Srinath (@_peews) October 25 2015 “Many years ago I saw Indian crowds greet Brian Lara with great joy” Harsha Bhogle wrote on his Facebook wall after the recently concluded ODI series “Then Shane Warne came to India and he was a huge hit too But I am struggling to recall another cricketer who has received the kind of ovation that AB de Villiers has I was hosting the telecast in Dharamshala at the start of the tour when he walked out to warm up and the noise was something else In Mumbai the crowds were chanting "ABD ABD" I must imagine it is incredibly moving to be so recognised and loved in another land" “It’s a privilege to be in that class or category on and off the field He is very much the same as Tendulkar He hasn’t got tattoos he hasn’t got earrings; he hasn’t got that flashy image He is not a fashion freak and all that shows what kind of a character he is” Fanie de Villiers said in the TOI interview “The moment you start going for all those things you develop a flaw in your personality You are trying to show not what you are AB hasn’t got any of those things and Sachin had nothing of that either Sampras had nothing of that Federer had nothing of that When you’re a top sportsman like Sachin Tendulkar and AB de Villiers you don’t need to do anything like that” Fanie de Villiers added Like Firstpost’s Jigar Mehta wrote after the series AB de Villiers is transcending cricketing boundaries And it is hard to disagree with Fanie de Villiers’ assessment that he could be as popular if not more popular than Tendulkar when it comes to the adoration he is receiving around the world Saha Goswami star in Bengal’s thrashing of Assam Kolkata: Openers Wriddhiman Saha and Shreevats Goswami remained unbeaten on 74 and 71 respectively as Bengal thrashed Assam by 10 wickets in an east Zone leg match of the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy T20 cricket tournament in Kolkata on Wednesday File photo of Wriddhiman Saha AP Saha and Goswami put on an unbroken 150 for the opening wicket to score an easy win for Bengal with four overs to spare at the Eden Gardens Earlier electing to bat Assam put on 146/9 Assam captain Arun Karthik scored a career-best 76 off 47 balls The rest of Assam’s line-up could not get going the next best score by Swarupam Purkayastha’s 15 off 20 balls restricted in particular by medium-pacer Sayan Ghosh who took 3/30 In another match Jharkhand slumped to their third straight defeat as they lost to Tripura by 24 runs at the Eden Gardens Scores: – Bengal 150 for no loss in 16 overs (Wriddhiman Saha 74 not out Shreevats Goswami 71 not out) beat Assam 146/9 in 20 overs (Arun Karthik 76;

in their place came debutant Fakhar Zaman and the once-prodigious Junaid Khan now a county circuit journeyman Pakistan then took on Sri Lanka – for which they benched teenaged leg-spinner Shadab Khan and brought in the medium paced Faheem Ashraf another debutant And against England in the semis they brought in Raees for Mohammed Amir (dodgy back) but also switched out Faheem Ashraf and brought Shadab back File photo of Pakistan cricket team AP International teams going into global tournaments look to pick their most settled sides Pakistan marching as always to the beat of a distinctly different drummer has not only fielded a different team in every single match but also blooded three debutants in four games – all this in a world-level tournament where the format is particularly unforgiving and there are no easy games to blood youngsters in It is as if the captain walks into the dressing room on match day checks to see which of his mates has freshly laundered uniforms and goes righto bloke fancy a game then Leading this patchwork quilt of a team is fittingly enough a neophyte captain who took over the armband from Azhar Ali this January and led in only three internationals (2-1 versus the West Indies) before boarding the flight to England Sarfraz Ahmed was mocked for his shambolic captaincy in the lung-opener against India particularly after talking of “out of the box plans” in the lead up to the game but has since settled down and as the tournament progressed shown an ability to marry tactical savvy with the sort of calm control a team of excitable young colts so badly needs Sarfraz has “also played ODIs intermittently for Pakistan” says Cricinfo’s player bio — a comment that seems peculiarly apt for most of his mates as well And yet look where they are Actually look who they are — the first team from Pakistan to enter the Champions’ Trophy final in eight tries spread over the 19-year span of the tournament It’s taken some lashings of luck for them to get this far – but it has also taken considerable skill allied to courage and tactical nous Fittingly since this is Pakistan under discussion it is the bowling that has propelled them to these rarefied heights Cricinfo’s S Rajesh has a detailed break-down of the bowling performances but the stat that should stand out is this: Since that disastrous opening against India when the Pakistan bowlers leaked 319 runs for just three wickets they have bowled out three sides out of three played and despite its revolving-door comings and goings has taken 28 wickets in three matches at a cost of 2378 per and an eye-popping economy rate of 446 per over All of which is doubly impressive when you consider that despite noticeable improvement since the opening game particularly following the introduction of Shadab Khan into the ring on the off side the fielding still leaks runs and drops catches often at pivotal moments Mohammed Amir no longer has the prodigious swing/reverse that made him an instant pinup when he debuted for Pakistan in its successful 2009 T20 World Cup campaign and soon thereafter saw him become the youngest ever at around 18 years to get to 50 Test wickets But what he has marginally lost in pace and swing he has more than made up for in craft and guile and mental strength With Junaid Khan the one-time prodigy turned county journeyman Amir has forged an opening partnership that has exercised iron control in the power-plays before showing up again to boss the death overs Both left-armers are similar in pace and the ability to hold full lengths that give the ball air-time to swing in; they are different in that one that surprises with lift off the deck from length while the other can skid the ball through creating the illusion that the ball has gained pace off the deck Imad Wasim Ahmad Shahzad and Mohammed Hafeez have delivered controlled spin in the middle overs but the engine room of this Pakistan bowling attack has been the hugely impressive Hassan Ali It’s not just that he bosses the overs between 11-40 where he has taken six wickets at an average of 12 and a scarcely-credible economy rate of three – what has made Ali the standout bowler of this tournament is his ability to produce the sort of magic ball that not conjures up crucial breakthroughs and lifts the side to new heights Witness that dream ball he produced to take out the Proteas’ Wayne Parnell the one that angled in on perfect length then moved away just enough off the seam to beat the defense and hit top of off And to prove that was no fluke he replicated it against Sri Lanka’s Kusal Mendis in the next game When you play Hassan Ali wrote Jarrod Kimber recently “you live in his world of pressure” The bowling unit – statistically the best in this tournament — has performed prodigies to get Pakistan this far; it will need to outperform its own high standards if the team is to upset in-form favorites India in the final The Oval has been a high-scoring venue this year – the tournament’s lung-opener featuring England against Bangladesh saw a total of 613 runs being scored for the loss of only 8 wickets in 972 overs; in the next game South Africa batting first scored 299/6; the India-Sri Lanka slugfest similarly saw 638 runs for the loss of just 9 wickets in 984 overs The sole aberration came when India bundled South Africa out for just 191 in 444 overs – but that was more down to the Proteas’ mental collapse than any demon in the wicket as India showed when in its turn it coasted to a winning 193/2 in just 38 overs The Oval pitches have played true with reliable bounce and an almost total absence of movement off the deck that allows batsmen to hit on the up even to length Unless the new pitch that will be used for the final is of a different parentage from its earlier siblings the Oval should produce a high-scoring game and Pakistan just does not have the batting strength to power its way to a 300-plus score against an Indian attack only fractionally weaker than its own Fakhar Zaman has provided Pakistan with the buccaneering spirit it has lacked at the top The second ball he faced in his ODI career off Wayne Parnell produced a slash over point He then got badged by Kagiso Rabada and retaliated with a dreamy punch through the line to the long off boundary And in Parnell’s next over the first ball was slapped through point the second went the same way with even more emphasis and brutality Since his debut his go big or go home style has resulted in 138 runs off 117 balls with 21 fours and two sixes But he is young yet; with age will hopefully come the smarts that will allow him to pull his horns back after that initial assault and look to bat deep The rest of the Pakistan batting lineup though tends to a stultifying orthodoxy and is only too willing to allow itself to be dictated to to be cramped by canny bowlers and to bat throughout at a gentle jog punctuated by pressure-intensifying periods of strokelessness – a potentially fatal flaw against India a side with a finely-honed ability to seize on the slightest weakness On balance then Pakistan’s best chance of pulling off an upset for the ages rests with its bowling And that in turn sets up a dream match-up: the best bowling unit in this tournament versus its most impressive batting side the contest playing out on a true wicket Click here to follow live scores and updates of Champions Trophy final between India and Pakistan" Swamy said. “For me between style and comfort I would choose style. the sui mai more than fortifies one’s tissues.
