Enlightened criticism of the governments functioningeven through bandhs and ralliesis a positive prerequisite for a healthy democracy But one needs to pause and ponder whether the July 5 Bharat bandh was in any way an attempt to wake the government out of its unconscionable slumber on inflation or did vested interests try to squeeze maximum political mileage from the fuel price rise Firstthe bandh concentrated more on the deregulation of petrol pricing than on the rise in prices of essential commodities Ironicallythe protesting parties had themselves advocated such a step in the past Hence the half-hearted protest was only to exert their political weight Ved Guliani Hisar Ways of protest There are two ways to show the power of public protests Courting arrestpicketing in front of government offices and leading public dissent in a peaceful manner lend credibility and respectability to strikes Hereinonce a party gives the call for a bandhit mobilises public opinion before the date and then leaves it to the masses to decide its stand If it succeedsit becomes an eye-opener for the government The other is the hackneyed approach to seek cooperation through coercion; forcibly close down

sixth-seeded Cibulkova the 2014 finalist at Melbourne Park “I got to be honest a bit tight at 4-0 in the second set But I’m still here I love this Grand Slam” In a momentum-swing match featuring some

summers day appears even to me like an odd place to be writing about Afghanistan My only excuse for writing about South Asias problem child in my favourite foreign city is that I happened to be here when the Rolling Stone article caused the sacking of General Stanley McCrystal A friend sent me the article online and the more I read about General McCrystal the more I realised how sad it was that he would have to go He seems to me to have understood well the bizarre nature of the war he was fighting and why it has become increasingly unwinnable There are several things that make this war bizarre and one of them is that there is no way of knowing when to declare victory We must hope that General David Petraeus understands quickly that Afghanistan is not Iraq and that saying Mission Accomplished will not be easy The enemy he has been sent to vanquish are the Taliban and the Al Qaeda but we no longer know if killing every last one of these Islamist warriors will put an end to the worldwide jihad It may have done in 2001 when American troops first landed in the desolate wilds of the Hindu Kush with a short list of leaders hiding in caves Since then the jihad has transformed itself into an ideologya new religion almostthat resonates dangerously with increasing numbers of young Muslims from Bali to Bori Bundur Nobody has so far been able to fully understand whybut the one common grievance is a hatred of America and a conviction that the Americans want to take over Islamic lands because of their insatiable hunger for oil Afghanistan has no oil but according to a recent report it has the worlds largest hidden treasure of minerals Nobody will remember that the Afghans have not had the brains or the technology to exploit this mineral wealth but it will not be long before the word out in the Muslim street is that the Americans went to Afghanistan not to hunt Osama bin Laden but because they knew about the buried minerals Americas Afghan war makes so little sense that any old absurd rumour is likely to be believed Why it makes no sense is because we have American troops fighting against an enemy called the Taliban which is financed by Pakistan and Pakistan is financed by the Americans Soin effectyou have the American government financing the enemy they are fighting It gets even more bizarre if you remember that the leaders of the Taliban are all hiding in Pakistan I have no pretensions to being a military genius but wonderas I writewhy Washington is not asking Islamabad for reasons why it supports Sirajuddin Haqqani who is Enemy Number One What makes even less sense is why when Barack Obama became President of the United States he did not announce a withdrawal of all American troops from Afghanistan instead of a surge of 30000 more troops In Delhiwhen I talk to our experts on the AfPak situationthey tell me that we should be grateful that the Americans are fighting our war for us What they mean is that it does not suit us to have the Taliban back in power in Afghanistan We prefer Hamid Karzai but can we really stop Islamist ideology from affecting our own young Muslims by supporting a weak Afghan leader PersonallyI believe that Pakistan and Afghanistan should be left to sort out their own problems so that they would be forced to admit that none of these problems would exist if Pakistani foreign policy had been less duplicitous and if Pakistans Generals had been wiser What has happened has happened All we can hope for now is that President Obama realises before it is too late that his AfPak policy makes little sense Either he holds Pakistan responsible for the creation of the Taliban and warns Islamabad that it better find a way of killing the monster it has created or there will be no more American dollars Or he finds a way of containing Pakistan In my humble opinion nothing better could happen than for the Americans to withdraw from Afghanistan as soon as possible The most important reason for this is that it would force Pakistan to deal more firmly with the lunatics they have given birth to and once the United States is no longer available to be blamed for all the failures of the Islamic world sensible Muslim leaders may start waking up to the reality that most of their problems are of their own creation If most Muslim countries today are dysfunctional and dangerous places there have to be
