knockout stages in Brazil in 2014 "We go out there wanting to win it but also being realistic" said Glenn "No-one wants to have a bad World Cup but we’re confident he’s the right guy to take us through for the next few tournaments" England’s future hopes have been buoyed by recent age-group successes including Under-17 and Under-20 World Cup victories and Glenn believes showing long-term vision is the way forward "We’re going to do it in a way that’s sustainable" he said "So we’re going to make sure that we’re picking the kind of players that can do their best in Russia and continue to kick on in 2020 and 2022 "What we’re doing is making sure that players that have made it through to the first team by 21 22 have had lots and lots of tournament experience So those under-17 winners

become just the fourth woman to win all four grand slams in the same year the US Open hype machine that already had been in top gear is now set to crank into overdrive The Williams sisters have met 26 times over their careers with Serena coming out on top 15-11 but meeting number 27 will have more than the usual sibling rivalry riding on the outcome "Obviously getting to a Grand Slam semifinal is the next step toward the final Pretty clear what’s up for grabs here" said Venus "I think people love to see history being made "No one is out to be a spoiler but at the same time you’re focused on winning your match even though the circumstances are really much different than you "You still have to prepare still have to play well "Even though you’re playing your sister you have to be prepared and focus The preparation doesn’t change" The 35-year-old Venus seeded 23rd overpowered 19-year-old qualifier Estonian Anett Kontaveit 6-2 6-1 in a ruthless fourth-round display that took just 50

Cilic "I played really good in the fourth set really great tennis so I’m happy about it" After splitting the opening two sets Cilic’s power began to show through particularly in the third set tiebreak

University "deeply distressing" New Delhi: Amid reports of alleged lynching attacks targeting minorities Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Thursday said there was no atmosphere of fear or insecurity prevailing among the community File image of Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi Image courtesy ibnlive Suspecting the role of some "hostile forces" behind such incidents the Minister of State for Minority Affairs said such "tactics" will not be allowed to succeed He however stressed that the incidents cannot be justified and pitched for tough action against the perpetrators Naqvi reiterated the Modi government’s commitment for inclusive growth and creating an atmosphere of trust among the communities He said safety of every section of the society was "equally important for" for the Centre "I do not think there is fear or insecurity among minorities But whatever incidents are taking place be it small or big be it a criminal conspiracy in no way it is justified Action should be taken as per law against them" Naqvi said after attending the 76th meeting of Central Waqf Council On asked which forces were behind such incidents Naqvi did not name any He however added that be it political organisations or individuals the state governments (given law and order is a state subject) concerned were taking "immediate and effective" action against the people involved "The governments of Rajasthan Haryana and Jharkhand have without wasting any time taken action against such people I myself had spoken to the chief ministers and officials of these states" he said Speaking during the meeting the Union minister said his ministry had been working towards socio-economic-educational empowerment of all the notified minorities — Muslim Christian Buddhist Sikh Parsi and Jain — effectively as a "mission and commitment" The minister said the measures the Centre had taken during the last three years of its rule were a reflection of its "empowerment without appeasement" policy which he added has created an "atmosphere of development and trust" Naqvi said his ministry had been successful in enabling the poor backward and weaker sections of the minorities to get their share of mainstream development through "three Es of education employment and empowerment" He also listed a range of schemes the government had been implementing for the welfare of the minorities Earlier this month 17-year-old Junaid Khan was stabbed to death onboard a train between Delhi and Mathura The group of attackers had allegedly hurled communal slurs and attacked the victim after an altercation over seats A few days ago over a 100-strong mob attacked a Muslim man on the suspicion of slaughtering a cow after finding the carcass of a bovine near his house in Giridih district of Jharkhand Asaduddin Owaisi the incendiary boss of the All-India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) has set the cat among the pigeons by deciding to contest 24 seats in the Muslim-dominated constituencies of Bihar in the forthcoming assembly elections His entry has drawn muted protests from phony secularists — both in the political arena and in the media — for allegedly weakening the fight against the "communal" BJP The main arguments used to criticise Owaisi’s foray are these: that he will be “dividing” Muslim votes and hence play spoiler for the “secularists” in these elections; moreover he may even be a BJP agent Since the BJP is not complaining the "secular" cabal feels its charge against Owaisi will be believable Asaduddin Owaisi PTI Another but different line of argument is that since Bihar under Lalu Prasad and Nitish Kumar has seen no major communal riot after Bhagalpur in the late 1980s Muslims will not be attracted to Owaisi’s brand of politics All these arguments are flawed While the JD(U)-RJD-Congress alliance will be hit hard if Owaisi actually manages to wean away some Muslim votes in Bihar the question that begs asking is this: if the "secular" parties have been such a boon to marginalised Muslim communities in India why are they so scared of Owaisi Why would Muslims vote for Owaisi if they had gotten a better deal from the "secular" parties As Owaisi himself put it colourfully in a recent TV interview: “Humko dekhkar unhe pet me dard kyon hota hai Apni kamjori ko hamaare ghar ke saamne rakhe to hum kya kare” The fear of Owaisi who is actually attempting nothing more – and nothing less – than what every other regional party has attempted more or less successfully exposes the phony nature of mainstream Indian “secularism” as never before For several reasons First the very idea that Muslim votes should not be “divided” is communal Nobody stops to think what this implies It means Muslims must vote as a block and not according to where they think their interests lie Now if voting as a block is all right for Muslims why not for Hindus or other communities Why castigate the BJP for seeking a Hindu consolidation when “secular” parties want a Muslim consolidation So to argue that Owaisi must not divide Muslim votes is patently wrong Second arguing that Muslims have no need for Owaisi since there were no communal riots in some states is worse As Owaisi himself observed in a TV show recently is the protection of life and limb some kind of favour shown by “secularists” to Muslims Isn’t that the duty of the state and all elected governments Or were “secular” parties merely running protection rackets for the minorities using the BJP and the RSS to scare Muslims into voting for them Third how is it fair to argue that the Bahujan Samaj Party is “progressive” because it organises Dalits into a voting bloc but it is somehow wrong for Owaisi to do the same with Muslims Is it all right for Mulayam Singh and Lalu Yadav to shamelessly garner Yadav votes but wrong of Owaisi to try to create a Muslim vote by appealing to their sense of grievance and/or communal instincts Is caste-based communalism absolutely fine but not religion-based communalism Fourth the challenge before all parties – from BJP to the Congress to all regional parties – is to focus on Muslim economic deprivation and not just be happy with providing them security If there is a Muslim party fighting not just for the community’s security but for their economic interests too how much more harm can it do than the harm the secularists have already done to create mistrust between Hindus and Muslims Fifth while the initial impact of Owaisi’s politics may indirectly benefit the BJP in the long run he will end up forcing “secularists” to confront the truth If he succeeds he could consolidate Muslim votes under a party (or group of parties) built on the Muslim identity This is no different from what is the case already in Kerala where the Indian Union Muslim League claims to represent Muslims and is the most powerful political force after the Congress and CPM Two even if he does not succeed Owaisi’s foray in Bihar (and elsewhere) will force other secular parties to really start doing something for Muslims beyond pretending to protect life and limb One may not love Owaisi’s brand of politics but it is a darn sight more honest than the phony secularism practiced by our mainstream parties where Muslims are cheated economically in the name of protecting them from “communalism” We can’t say which way Muslim politics will be headed if Owaisi succeeds (or fails) but at the very least he will have forced a rethink on secularism that is more about ghettoising Muslims than mainstreaming them He could well be a force for some good It was pretty surprising when Opposition parties praised the Narendra Modi government and the Indian Army immediately after the Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh informed the media about the surgical strikes which were conducted against terror launch pads across the LoC in PoK Representational image Reuters You rarely get to witness a day in Indian politics when the Opposition stands united with the government After parties like Congress AAP JD(U) praised the central government and armed forces we asked ourselves: Could it be that political parties in India had finally decided not to play petty politics over an issue Could something like that actually be possible No as it turns out Merely days after news about the surgical strikes were made public Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a video message on Monday told Prime Minister Narendra Modi to "unmask Pakistan’s false propaganda" "Since these surgical strikes took place Pakistan has become very agitated Pakistan has now resorted to dirty politics" he had said "For the last two or three days we have seen that Pakistan has been taking foreign journalists to the border (with India) It has been trying to convince them that the surgical strikes did not take place" "I appeal to the prime minister: Unmask Pakistan’s false propaganda like the way you (Modi) and the army taught Pakistan a lesson on the ground" Kejriwal had said "Unmask Pakistan’s baseless attempt to damage the reputation of India on the global forum" With enough anti-Pakistan remarks the Delhi CM must have hoped that the focus would be on exactly that: anti-Pakistan sentiment But since the only way the Modi government can "unmask" Pakistan’s claims is by providing evidence that the surgical strikes did take place the ruling party lashed out at Kejriwal and claimed that he was making statements against the Indian Army for scoring political points Meanwhile Congress leader and former Home Minister P Chidambaram said such surgical strikes had taken place under the UPA regime too and then asked the Modi government to provide proof for the surgical strikes A dramatic Ravi Shankar Prasad BJP leader and Union minister in a press conference in New Delhi on Tuesday hit out at Kejriwal and Congress "Somewhere or the other is there a question being raised on the probes conducted by the Indian army" Prasad said "A chief minister of India is getting influenced by Pakistan’s false propaganda and is asking for proof for the surgical strikes" he said "Chidambaram has earlier been the home and finance minister of the country But what is the message he is sending Is he also joining the bandwagon of creating doubts and seeking to belittle our armed forces" Prasad said As if this was not enough politics yet another Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam had this to say on Twitter: Every Indian wants #SurgicalStrikesAgainstPak but not a fake one to extract just political benefit by #BJP Politics over national interest pictwittercom/4KN6iDqDo5 — Sanjay Nirupam (@sanjaynirupam) October 4 2016 "There were three surgical strikes during Congress regime but we never politicised it The DGMO never held a press conference to declare it So who told the DGMO to convene a press conference in the post-Uri scenario" Nirupam asked "The government has to provide some sort of evidence without compromising national security" he said Senior Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma had also said that "the government must expose Pakistan’s denial It has all the tools and instruments to do so" More importantly the statements by the Congress leaders came despite Rahul Gandhi having praised PM Modi for the surgical strikes On the other hand Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia came to the defence of his CM and said that the AAP convener never uttered the word "saboot" (proof) but was asking Modi to fight the propaganda unleashed by the international media with Pakistan questioning the authenticity of the operations Apart from these intense statements more drama came from other politicians in the country Pak shouting and parading international journos to POK saying NO surgical Strike then why not
