Muslims Hiding in their homehe saw outsiders looting his own after smashing the idols of the ancestral temple where his father was the pujari This was the morning after the Babri Masjid demolition The trauma proved too much for the 15-year-old; the family left their downtown home for a Hindu-dominated suburb 50 kms away The daily commute aged his parents prematurely But Ganesh was fortunate; other kids had to drop out of schools in Mumbai and move back to their villages in UP after their homes were destroyed in the riots Ganesh has often wondered whether it was necessary for the Babri Masjid to

The principal purpose of the nominating conventions is to signal party unity by putting aside personal differences and policy arguments that animated the turbulent primary process But the Cleveland convention will be remembered for the public expression of deep divisions that have cleaved the Republican Party in 2016 And then some Much of the Republican Party establishment stayed away from Cleveland Senator Ted Cruz who came a distant second in the primaries did show up But when he refused to endorse Trump and urged the delegates to vote their conscience he was booed off the stage With few party stalwarts to rally the troops Trump chose to serenade the members of his beautiful family Some of that effect was marred by the discovery that the speeches of his wife Melania and son Donald Jr were plagiarised But these distractions don’t overshadow Trump’s reaffirmation of a powerful and what many see as dangerous political message that allowed him to outsmart many well-established leaders in the Republican Party over the last few months If there was one idea that knit together both his campaign and his address at the convention it was “America First” — keeping Americans safe from crime Islamic terror migrant workers foreign goods and free-riding allies At the centre of his speech was the self definition as a “law and order candidate” amidst deepening racial tension and widespread attacks on the police in American cities His stoking of internal security anxieties was matched by his plans to limit the external threat to America: Mexican and Muslim immigration He blamed free trade for the loss of jobs and promised to tear up or renegotiate trade agreements On foreign policy he has reaffirmed that the Allies must pay more for American security umbrella Trump’s radical agenda would not have mattered if his prospects of winning were trivial Although the poll numbers continue to favour his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton there is no pre-judging the outcome in a two horse race Trump’s claim that “Americanism not globalism is his credo” did resonate during the primaries especially with the White working classes who are threatened by economic globalisation and open borders By painting Clinton as symbol of a greedy globalist elite that has robbed America of its jobs and created new threats to it by military adventurism in West Asia Trump hopes to put his powerful rival on the defensive and wean away many traditional Democratic voters Many have seen Trump’s strategy as reckless But there is a method in the manic turn that Trump has begun to impose on

picture on Instagram on Friday with a caption titled ‘sick’ Top News Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he is expecting forwardAlexis Sanchez to return to training on Tuesday This was after Sanchez was diagnosed with a bout of flu and remained out of action “He has flu yes I had him on text yesterday” said Wenger after Saturday’s 5-2 win over Benfica “There’s no development – he is staying of course” It may be recalled here that there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the future of Sanchez which has raised a lot of controversies However Wenger who recently signed a new two-year deal does not believe that uncertainty over futures over some players will not have a negative impact on the squad “The players who have one year of their contract have to respect their contract and play out their contract” Wenger said and added “For a manager it’s a bit different because it concerns more what is the future of the club “The players were thinking ‘What’s going on and what’s happening’ so it creates uncertainty [with my contract] because it’s a global policy I am responsible for the global policy of the club but for the players it is different” Earlier Sanchez spoke about his future and said ‘I’m watching what my agent does For now I’m focused on my game and will try to do well The truth is that my representative will see it He knows and will sit with the club seeing what is best for me I would like many things but I only think about the selection’ Speaking about his coach Sanchez had said in an interview with football outlet Copa 90 “Arsene Wenger is
