exhibits Exhibit 1: "Narendra Modi has run a brilliant campaign and our enemy has triumphed but do not lose heart; remember he’s a dog and they’re all sons of dogs you turn your face in the direction of Allah…he’s our Master what are these people Narendra Modi has united all of us Muslims…finish off these goondas trample over the heads of these people…" That was the chief of the AIMIM Asaduddin Owaisi a three-time MP speaking in June 2014 shortly after the resounding victory of Minister Narendra Modi As this Firstpost report shows a local Delhi court subsequently ordered filing a criminal case against him under “IPC sections of 120 B (criminal conspiracy) 121 (waging war against India) 153(A) (promoting enmity between different groups) 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace)” Exhibit 2: While speaking at a rally in Kurnool in 2011 [Akbaruddin] Owaisi used the derogatory term ‘kafirs’ to refer to MLAs in the Andhra Pradesh legislative assembly In the same rally he used words katil (murderer) darinda (monster) beimaan (dishonest) dhokebaaz (cheat) and chor (thief) for former Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao Owaisi said that if Rao had not died he would have killed Rao with his own hands That was Akbaruddin Owaisi brother of Asauddin Owaisi who in 2007 led a mob of his supporters to launch an unprovoked and violent assault against writer Taslima Nasrin Exhibit 3: Because Hindus fear the Muslims they have fallen on the path of secularism Each time they were conquered by Muslim soldiers they have learnt to sink and bend like powerless blades of grass This can be seen several times in our history That was Syed Shahbuddin in the 20 March 1983 edition of the now-defunct magazine Sunday The moot point in these three exhibits is not their obviously incendiary and hateful tone but the manner in which the mainstream discourse deals with it The honourable MP from Hyderabad is invited to prime-time television debates and is presented as the face of moderate Muslims in India despite evidence to the contrary which is freely available His brother’s speeches and violent behaviour is overlooked And as history shows Syed Shahbuddin was regarded by the media and intelligentsia as the last word on secularism emanating from the Muslim side during the tumultuous days of the Ayodhya affair Cut to the present in the aftermath of Yogi Adityanath who has now taken oath as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh It is enough to say that the majority of the media and public discourse surrounding him paints him in doomsday hues This applies in varying proportions to the discourse emerging from both the Left-Liberal-Secular camp as well as sections of the so-called Right Wing This wholly one-sided discourse rests primarily on three assumptions about Yogi Adityanath: These assumptions stem from the same politics and ideology of stoking fear mongering among Muslims an art perfected by the Congress and its political clones like the BSP SP etc and propagated for decades by a friendly media and intelligentsia In all this discourse the crucial missing element is a dispassionate and objective analysis of Yogi Adityanath’s political and ideological record going beyond a superficial branding exercise If the image of Yogi Adityanath as a dangerous extremist is true what explains his overwhelming popularity among the UP electorate cutting across caste and communal lines Are we to assume that all Hindus of Uttar Pradesh are Muslim-hating extremists In all his five terms as an MP couldn’t the media and analysts find time to do just one objective story on him instead of contenting themselves with merely labelling him as a fringe Hindutva extremist BJP party president Amit Shah with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath Reuters However numerous reports about the massive respect that he commands even among the Muslims have slowly started to emerge from the stables of DNA Hindustan Times and The Times of India But the media which keenly highlights his “extremist” speeches also conveniently forgets to take his word when he invites them to have a first hand look at his educational institutions and hospitals where everybody is welcome irrespective of caste or community or the fact that there have been no communal riots in and around Gorakhpur under his watch Even assuming that Yogi Adityanath is a hardliner and extremist will the purveyors of the discourse of communal labelling deign to present their model of secularism and inclusive politics Is it the model of Mulayam Singh Yadav-Akhilesh Yadav whose reign justified rapes as "Ladke toh ladke hain… galti ho jati hai (boys will be boys… they commit mistakes)" Or remain mute spectators when one of their ministers announces a reward of Rs 51 crores to anyone who beheads the Danish cartoonists Or the fact that these purveyors see nothing wrong in lending legitimacy to a convicted politician like Lalu Yadav Perhaps the most illustrative representative of this prejudiced discourse is this interview by Prannoy Roy and Shekhar Gupta almost immediately after Yogi Adityanath was declared the CM candidate As veteran journalists they could have asked the chief minister-elect a million questions bearing actual significance: his vision for the state his plans to tackle the numerous problems and so on but the manner in which they repeatedly try to box him into a single question — Hindus versus Muslims — shows the true extent of the bankruptcy characterising their thought process Indeed it’s déjà vu all over again Let’s not forget the sort of non-stop abuse and even made-up stories to portray LK Advani and other RSS/VHP/BJP leaders in the 1990s as monsters out to destroy the honeyed secularism as the glue “that keeps India together” Even as recent as early 2014 Modi was still painted as a fascist and mass murderer of Muslims Now it’s the turn of Yogi Adityanath And when we survey these two-plus decades we note that in most of such articles and news reports was even a pretense of objectivity maintained The case of Modi is a classic example of an elected chief minister subjected to a sustained campaign of vilification and intense scrutiny who eventually showed his detractors the mirror And so given this history should we base our views about Yogi Adityanath on such slanted reportage It’s also quite amusing how not one among the Adityanath-detractors knew what exactly tilted the balance in his favour as the chief ministerial candidate but there’s no end to speculation about how the RSS is more powerful than the prime minister etc Or the unexamined assumption that “vikas” and Hindutva are mutually exclusive Among other things the popularity and mass appeal of Yogi Adityanath owes to his manner of speaking bluntly about the harsh ground realities in Uttar Pradesh which the media knows to be true but either suppresses or glosses over Equally his deep-rooted cultural connect and his rustic candour upsets media talking heads who seem unable to deal with someone who isn’t defensive about his Hindu-ness There’s another underlying trend in this As with Brexit and the Trump victories the purveyors of the liberal-secularist-multiculturalist discourse simply can’t seem to accept a democratic verdict And the manner in which they’re going about in the cases of Trump and now Yogi Adityanath seems to indicate a coping mechanism to come to terms with their loss: from denial to even outright abuse The fact that even someone like Shashi Tharoor argued for scrapping parliamentary democracy in India shows the depths of their despair In the end the fundamental aspect of the aforementioned narrative is the fact that there seems to be no balance — it appears that any mention of “Yogi Adityanath” must necessarily be accompanied by “extremist” “Hindutva” “hardliner” “anti-Muslim” “anti-development” and related qualifiers He has barely taken office and has five more years to either prove these worthies right or otherwise The least they can do is exercise patience and restraint since objectivity seems alien to their worldview Written by Priyanka Sharma | Mumbai |

Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsWritten by Mihir Vasavda | New Delhi | Updated: July 21 2017 9:52 am India coach Luis Norton de Matos with striker Rahul KP (L) and midfielder Shubam Sarangi Top News Rather innocently Rahul KP shared a ‘private’ moment with 100-odd media persons and a dozen cameras “(Growing up) there wasn’t much support from mom and dad They were busy with their own jobs because they want to feed us they have a family My family background was weak” the India under-17 team’s striker began “So my father’s brother bought me boots and balls taught me how to kick I trained alone and it was a bit difficult since mom dad weren’t supporting So I developed a fighting mentality from there It’s a private thing so…” His voice trailed off and he smiled slightly embarrassed after realising that the ‘private thing’ wouldn’t quite remain that in a room full of journalists Barring that one candid moment Rahul barely showed any nerves in his first brush with scrutiny If confidence is what the chief coach has demanded from his players then there is no dearth of it Even before the draw took place earlier this month India’s preparations for the tournament were being closely monitored In Thursday’s interaction you could sense the equal measure of optimism and scepticism that the team is facing ahead of the tournament that begins on October 6 “Do you think India can even draw one match” Luis Norton de Matos the team’s Portuguese coach has been asked several times whether India have the quality to put up a fight let alone win a match The hosts have been handed a tough draw The USA are the tournament’s veterans having played in all but one edition since 1985 Ghana have twice won the title and Colombia are the strongest South American team along with Brazil India in contrast are unknown not just outside but also to most at home Nicolai Adam the German who coached the team for two years urged the players to play freely He preferred flair and did not mind even if the attacking mindset resulted in defeats which was often the case In stark contradiction off the field Adam was a disciplinarian who — according to the players — verbally and physically abused them He quit amidst the controversy which put De Matos in the hot seat The 63-year-old was earlier the coach of Portuguese club Benfica’s B team There he was credited with nurturing among other players Swedish defender Victor Lindelof who was recently signed by Manchester United for 31 million Expectations in India De Matos understands are sky high But he took charge of a shaken changing room and his first priority was to restore peace “When there is a change there is anxiety among players When I came I wanted to be a leader in the sense that I can guide players and not be a chief A chief gives orders The first thing I tried to do was to keep the confidence of the players” he says He made half a dozen changes to the squad and the playing style was radically modified as well The teens who were told to play freely by the previous coach now had to learn to ‘play between the lines’ have an organised defence to ensure silly goals are not conceded and engage in counter-attacks “We have spent hours and hour and hours on passing and reception Playing structured does not mean we are defensive But we need to defend too and be good in counter-attacks” De Matos said The team has travelled the world in search of competitive games and train at the best facilities The wins have remained elusive but there have been a few eye-catching performances One of their most dominating performances came against Iran earlier this year in a tournament in Russia The match highlights make for an entertaining watch There were all things that you generally associate with Indian football – the feints and dummies slick one-touch passing and intelligent off-the-ball running They couldn’t score though and conceded a soft goal to lose 1-0 There were a couple of goalless draws against Serbia and Macedonia as well More recently they played against Benfica’s youth team After going down by two goals the colts showed grit to come back in the last 15 minutes and draw 2-2 “The Benfica players were surprised to watch us play like that and after the match we were applauded by them” Rahul said “Coming back from two goals down in the last 15 minutes and making it 2-2 was a wonderful moment” midfielder Shubham Sarangi added “It felt like we could do anything But we showed them we can play as well” For all the latest Sports News download Indian
