of indebtedness for the way the world body supported the game in the country in the last few years (Source: Reuters) Related News The All India Football Federation (AIFF) on Tuesday said it would stand by Sepp Blatter who resigned as FIFA president for the way he has helped the development of the game in India However AIFF vice president Subrata Dutta also made it clear that they would think otherwise if Blatter is indicted on some count and hoped that India would continue to be treated with respect and importance irrespective of who comes in as a replacement “We were with Blatter We will continue to be by his side unless of course he is indicted on some charges” Dutta told IANS here The AIFF official said India voted for Blatter in the recent FIFA election as a mark of indebtedness for the way the world body supported the game in the country in the last few years “We received all kinds of cooperation The under-17 World Cup was gifted to us FIFA has done a lot for the development and improvement of soccer in India” he said Looking ahead Dutta said irrespective of who occupies the FIFA chief’s post now the under-17 World Cup the country is set to host in 2017 won’t be affected “I feel whoever now occupies the hot seat India would continue to be treated with respect and importance India is a big market FIFA will continue to stand by us the same way it has over the past few years “I am confident that the under-17 World Cup will not be affected FIFA has a professional set-up It has professionals to run each department The person who occupies the highest position only takes the policy decisions It is implemented by the professionals So we have no worries about that” said Dutta Earlier in the day Blatter announced he was stepping down from football’s governing body amid a corruption scandal and also called for an extraordinary congress “as early as possible” at which a successor will be elected The Swiss announced his decision at a hastily-arranged press conference after his secretary-general Jerome Valcke was earlier implicated in the US Department of Justice’s investigations into a $10 million payment to indicted former FIFA vice-president Jack

very first over (Source:AP) Related News Sri Lanka overcame their batting failure with a disciplined bowling performance to beat United Arab Emirates by 14 runs in a round robin league encounter of the Asia Cup T20 on Thursday Put into bat by UAE the defending World T20 champions could manage only 129 for eight in 20 overs with only Dinesh Chandimal (50) making a significant contribution But skipper Lasith Malinga dealt twin blows in the very first over with two block-hole deliveries to peg back UAE who only managed 115 for 9 in their stipulated overs The target was a small one but UAE’s inexperience against big teams was the main factor in not being able to chase down a small total Watch Video | Asia Cup: Sri Lanka Begin With Shaky Win Over UAE In a match that never rose to dizzy heights the only notable incident was pacer Dushmantha Chameera being barred from completing the final over of the innings for bowling two beamers which is illegal as per rules It was Angelo Mathews who completed the formalities The batsmen even after recovering from the top-order damage never went for the chase Within the first five overs UAE lost four wickets with seasoned duo of Malinga (4/26 in 4 overs) and Nuwan Kulasekara (3/10 in 4 overs) sharing the spoils With half of the team being back in the dug-out before the total reaching even 40 it was virtually impossible for the qualifiers to make a match out of it It started with the very first delivery that left-handed opener Rehan Mustafa (0) faced Malinga bowled one that was full and swung into batsman’s pads It would have crashed into middle and leg and the decision was an easy one for the umpire In that very over Malinga dealt another telling blow removing UAE’s best batsman Mohammed Shahzad (1) with another full delivery that went through his defences Muhammad Kaleem (7) tried to clear mid-off but Angelo Mathews took a simple catch to give Kulasekara his first wicket UAE were in tatters at 16 for four when Muhammed Usman (6) tried a hoick off Kulasekara but Chamara Kapugedara took a regulation catch at first slip At that moment the match was virtually over but Swapnil Patil (37) to save his team the blushes But Patil did not play too many big shots even when he was set None of the other batsmen crossed 15-run mark for UAE Rangana Herath (2/22) got a couple of middle-order wickets and kept the pressure on UAE However UAE will take some positives out of this match especially a good performance from their bowlers led by skipper Amjad Javed (3/25) who got the first three Sri Lankan wickets including Chandimal Tillakaratne Dilshan (27) and Milinda Siriwardana (6) Chandimal scored 50 off 39 balls with seven fours and one six adding 68 runs for the opening stand with Dilshan Sri Lanka were 72 for one after first 10 overs but some poor shot selection saw them score only 57 in the next 10 losing seven more wickets After the openers none of the Lankan batsmen could cross 10-run mark However the bowlers did the job for them on the day For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express News Service | Dharamsala | Updated: March 11 2016 11:45 am Arafat Sunny and Taskin Ahmed have been reported for suspect action (Source: AP) Related News Just as Bangladesh seemed relieved after passing the first hurdle in the qualifying rounds edging the Netherlands on Wednesday the ICC spoiled their peace of mind when they shot an official letter stating that they are “concerned” with the bowling action of medium pacer Taskin Ahmed and left-arm spinner Sunny Arafat This means they are required to clear the action in a week’s time though they can continue to play until they are cleared by an ICC-accredited lab the closest being in Chennai However since the condition states that they should undergo the test within seven days they could miss the main-round matches that is if they qualify Bangladesh coach Chandika Hathurusingha was understandably dismayed over the timing of the communication and he didn’t restrain his anger “If they have a concern about my bowlers I have a concern about their actions as well don’t see anything wrong They have bowled the same way as the last 12 months As you said if they [the ICC officials] have officiated the matches they have been playing they must have seen something different yesterday That’s all I can say” he fumed He pointed out that it was the same officials – match referee Andy Pycroft who expressed the “concern” over the action in his report and on-field umpire Rod Tucker – who had officiated in Bangladesh’s 2-1 series win over India last year but couldn’t find anything illegal with the bowlers’ action He then defiantly insisted that they wouldn’t change their action overnight “It’s about how you take it As bowlers they are strong enough to understand what they are doing is right We also think that we have no concern They have played so much cricket recently as well It is a surprise for us We have to take their concerns But they are only concerns at this stage I don’t think it will affect the way we are playing” The other officials of the game were on-field umpire S Ravi and third umpire Chris Gaffaney This will be a body blow for Bangladesh as they are already fretting over the fitness of left-arm seamer Muztafizur Rahman In his absence the 20-year-old Taskin especially has impressed bowling with pace and control Sunny whose two over against the Dutch cost just 10 runs is a canny bowler on sluggish surfaces Also both of them haven’t been reported before Meanwhile an ICC media release stated that they are now working with the Bangladesh team management to confirm the date for testing “The ICC is working with the Bangladesh cricket team management to confirm times for the independent testing of both bowlers at the ICC-accredited testing centre in Chennai The ICC regulations state every reasonable effort shall be made for the Independent Assessment to be carried out and

question amounted to interfering in his countrys internal affairs (Read the full exchange at http://s.googl/fWgos) What do both sets of exchanges tell you That Musharraf is a deeplyterminally delusional man who passionately believed his own mythologies: that by overthrowingjailing and exiling a prime minister enjoying a two-thirds majorityhe had only restored real democracy in Pakistanand that his people loved him as a liberal democrat as they had loved no other but Jinnah Only a buccaneering fool like that could believe that stealthily taking a 10-km strip of territory in Kargil would bring India to its kneesor spend a night with some of his invading troops in the same zone Ornowcontinue believing that his people are missing him so desperately that millions would line the streets

75 an hour Instead she paid her only 31 an hour PTI Related News As we move away from a monocivilisational world of Western domination of world history to a multicivilisational world our minds must begin retooling themselves We have to develop the capability of carrying competing if not contradictory narratives and understand that both may be correct even if they contradict each other We will have to learn to shed black and white judgements in favour of multi-hued complex assessments A perfect example of equally correct but contradictory narratives is provided by the case of Devyani Khobragade an Indian consular officer arrested by US authorities on December 12 In American eyes it is a clear black and white case She had signed an agreement to pay her domestic help Sangeeta Richard $975 an hour Instead she paid her only $331 an hour As Khobragade had violated US laws it was both legal and legitimate for the US attorney Preet Bharara to have her arrested and charged Reflecting mainstream American opinion The New York Times editorialised that “India’s overwrought reaction to the arrest of one of its diplomats in the United States is unworthy of a democratic government” This American narrative has a point Khobragade has her rights So does Sangeeta Richard the employee Richard was clearly the underdog in this exercise (even though by being employed in America her wages increased 25-fold) Indeed the traditional American concern for the underdog is one of the strongest aspects of American society So is the egalitarian spirit of American society which has gone much further than any other human society in removing and eradicating all traces of feudal culture In my first book on America and the world (entitled Beyond the Age of Innocence) I praised the American doormen who would look me in the eyes and treat an ambassador like me as an equal and not act in a submissive manner like any Asian doorman would Shekhar Gupta has waxed eloquent on the egalitarian virtues of American society He noted that barely within a year of leaving office as deputy secretary of state Strobe Talbott had to scramble for a taxi in New Delhi like any other commoner More amusingly he told the story of a famous Indian film actress who refused to marry and settle down in America because Indians in America refused to allow her to cut a supermarket queue even after they had recognised her The good news for our world is that this American egalitarian spirit is gradually infecting other societies including Asian societies and therefore making them less feudal Ironically however even as this American spirit of egalitarianism infects the world American government officials continue to insist on feudal-type privileges while serving in other countries It is normal for American diplomats to receive diplomatic immunity Rather abnormally the American government expects that even its non-diplomats should receive immunity In some cases they have literally not metaphorically gotten away with murder Raymond Davis a CIA contractor was whisked away from the Pakistani judicial system after shooting and killing two Pakistani citizens In the ancient days only feudal lords stood above the laws of the land Today American government employees also enjoy feudal immunities overseas (even though most of them are law-abiding citizens while working overseas) Sadly few Americans are aware that the American government practices double standards in the application of laws It allows no foreign government officials including a powerful person like Dominique Strauss-Kahn then head of the International Monetary Fund any immunity from American laws Yet it expects its government officials to be — in theory and in practice — immune from other countries’ legal courts Whenever any US government official faces the threat of prosecution in a foreign legal court he or she is quietly whisked away as few governments can withstand bilateral pressure from the US government Since many Americans are puzzled by the Indian outrage they should know that Indian society was deeply shocked that a senior Indian official was subject to a strip search This created a deep sense of cultural outrage similar to the outrage that Americans would feel if a black citizen is called a “nigger” today Any Westerner who cannot understand this analogy will be unable to absorb a multi-civilisational perspective All governments in the world are aware of this schizophrenic attitude of the US government (which I must stress reflects the views of the US Congress) On one hand the US government is second to none in defending the rule of law at home On the other hand the US government is second to none in defending immunity for its officials from all foreign legal courts and judicial procedures When the International Criminal Court (ICC) Statute came into force on July 1 2002 the US government undertook a massive campaign to get over a hundred foreign governments to sign what have been called “article 98 agreements” or “bilateral immunity agreements (BIAs)” These agreements stipulate that these countries would not send US citizens to the ICC Similarly the US Congress has developed a long-standing practice of extra-territorial application of its domestic laws on other countries and their citizens But it is extremely reluctant to allow the extra-territorial application of other countries’ laws on its own territory This schizophrenic attitude of the US government explains why virtually every other government in the world was quietly cheering on the Indian government as it insisted on total reciprocity in the treatment of Indian and American officials Few governments in the world have the geopolitical heft or the moral legitimacy to look the American government in the eye and demand such absolute reciprocity India does Hence even India’s biggest detractor in the world Pakistan is quietly cheering on India They hoped that India would finally succeed in persuading the US government to accept a level playing field in dealing with other countries The Indian government’s success in persuading the American government to allow Khobragade to return home and not face charges in an American court will therefore be cheered all around the world Most countries realise that they would not have had the weight to shift the US government India is one of the few who could do so And in doing so India has also enhanced the rights and standing of other foreign diplomats on American territory Finally and perhaps most importantly India may have actually done America a favour Why The former American president Bill Clinton has wisely counselled his fellow citizens to prepare for a world “that we would like to live in when we’re no longer the military political economic superpower in the world” His wise advice indicates how the two contradicting narratives can come together: Americans should work hard to create binding international law regimes that would apply equally to American and non-American officials and citizens In the final analysis a level playing field in this area would demonstrate that the American egalitarian spirit is influencing international law too Kishore Mahbubani The writer is dean and professor in the practice of public policy of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of
