While it is a fact that the C-D ratio in Bihar at 291 per cent is below the national average of 781 per centit does not preclude the need for granting a Special Category Status; rather it reinforces the compelling need to improve both the investment climate and enhance absorptive capacity It is also ironic that for a state growing at 12 per centbanks do not find adequate bankable projects The growth rates have been fuelled by constructiontransport and tourism but also the primary sector There is also an urban bias in expansion of bank branches in the state as the number of rural branches have shrunk from 616 per cent to 546 per cent during 2008 to 2012 A Special Category Status would enhance resourcesincentivise private investment and enable greater access to external funds The onus

Samsung describes the wearable to be smaller than the Gear S3 with interchangeable watch straps similar to that of the Gear Fit 2 The wearable will be fully waterproof so it won’t get damaged while swimming and intense workouts It can also be used for weight and calorie management sports coaching and activity tracking The company doesn’t mention what operating system the wearable will run but it’s likely to be powered by Tizen The company only mentions that the device will have a “revised user interface” optimised for widgets and glanceable information It seems that the watch will have interactive watch faces though the exact details are scant at the moment So far not much is known about the upcoming wearable Samsung doesn’t reveal the screen size of the watch – and one of the

Technology News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsFresh from a thumping victory in Assam and a good showing in West Bengal and Kerala BJP president Amit Shah is in an unusually buoyant mood and has now set high targets for himself and his party — winning the all-important Assembly election in Uttar Pradesh He however is cautious of the fact that high notes like these often allowcomplacency to set in and guards himself and other party leaders against that: “Safalta barkarar rakhna bahut badi chunauti hoti hai (Maintaining this level of success will be a challenge)” he said He however added that “good works” done by the Narendra Modi government at the Centre will keep the party on an expansionist path of success Contrary to public perception that Mayawati’s Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) was rising in Uttar Pradesh and this time around was the principal contender for power Shah believes that it is the Samajwadi Party (SP) and not the BSP against whom the BJP will be pitched in a direct fight for power To a query from Firstpostabout why this was the case and why he thought BJP was in the reckoning for power in the state Shah said SP has a “strong base” and a comparatively good organisational spread but added that people were “looking up to the BJP” and “have lot of expectations from us because avyavastha (mis-governance chaos) has percolated down to the bottom” When asked if the emphasis on Dalit outreach by Modi the party and himself was working to the detriment of Mayawati’s BSP and to the benefit of the BJP Shah said he didn’t look at it that way "Har vanchit par jyada dhyan dena sarkar aur party ka kartvaya hai (it is duty of the government and the party to take special care of deprived sections)" For all practical purposes the BJP will sound its electoral bugle in the most populous Hindi heartland state on Thursday when Modi addresses a public rally in Sharanpur Although this rally is part of five rallies that he is addressing in Rajasthan Orissa Karnataka Shillong and of course Uttar Pradesh on his completion of two years in office — or what the BJP likes to call Vikas Parv Pakhwada —the implicit message of holding his rally in Western UP at this stage is lost on no one Shah will begin his preparatory work in Uttar Pradesh on 1 June when he will be touring the state He will be there again on 4 adn 8June The BJP is holding its national executive meeting to be attended by all the high and mighty on 12 and 13June in Allahabad The executive meeting will conclude with a public rally addressed by Modi Shah underplays it saying “Don’t link it with the Uttar Pradeshelections these are the usual government and party programs” Shah candidly said he learnt a lot from the Bihar experience (read as debacle) “Maine kaafi manthan kiya hai (I have done a lot of introspection) but I can’t make all that public” It has all been internalised To a question on how much Nitish Kumar’s plans to tour Uttar Pradesh extensively could damage the BJP’s prospects pat came his reply: “That will end up benefitting us Hamaara vote toh jaana nahi hai jo batna hai woh unkevote mein batna hai (We aren’t the ones who will lose votes it will be their votes that will be split)” Interacting with a group of journalists on the occasion of theModi government’s two years in power he was in an unusual chatty mood He talked extensively about party government poll prospects (present and future) laughed cracked witty one-liners and even took mild digs at a journalist who insisted that he was in onsupposed inside information and suggested that Ajit Singh was joining the BJP Shah said the victory in Assam was very satisfying It was he said a “childhood dream” for him to see a BJP government in that state Many old-timers who had for decades worked or supported the BJP experienced the heartening satisfaction of finally seeing a BJP government there “Assam was ideologically important for us” he said On Monday chief ministers of Assam Arunachal Pradesh Sikkim and Nagaland met Shah The formation of a non-Congress Northeast democratic council with the BJP’s new entrant Himanta Biswa Sarma as its convener was announced To a query about why the BJP was putting so much emphasis on the Northeast the BJP president said it was “because it is as much part of India as anywhere else We are focusing on all areas also expanding our party’s base in regions where our presence has traditionally not been strong” For him sweetest of all poll results is Kerala not because the party has opened itsaccount there but because the BJP has polled 15 percent of the total votes “Happiest is the Kerala result We will form the next government in Kerala" Is he being overly optimistic No not at all he said For any other party this would be business as usual but not for the BJP In 1985 BJP held a 12 percent vote-share in Gujarat and in 1990 the BJP formed a government there he added The same applies to Haryana In 2009 the BJP had only nine percent of the votes and in 2014 it got a clear majority on its own with a vote-share in excess of 33 percent This has also been the case in Assam The year 2017 will present a major challenge for the BJP Elections will be held in seven states including Uttar Pradesh Uttarakhand Punjab Goa Manipur Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh “I am working hard to ensure that BJP wins in all the seven states” he said Does he think Congress-mukt Bharat is politically a good thing for the BJP because it faces tougher challenge from regional parties as against smooth sailing against the Congress Shah said “Congress-mukt Bharat as a concept has been misinterpreted Of course we want to defeat and remove Congress from all the places it rules but by using this term wedon’tmean the Congress party per se but the system of mis-governance and corruption that the Congress symbolises We have to uproot thekuvyastha (malpractices) and free India from these things for a better tomorrow" While the BJP is celebrating all over India Gujarat chief minister Anandiben Patel has reason to worry Shah did not rule out her removal ahead of the Gujarat polls which are scheduled to be held in the second half of 2017 This writer had earlier written that Anandiben would be given a dignified exit she would leave the chief ministerial position saying that she was quitting because she had turned 75 and would thus pave way for a new leader to lead the party in the 2017 polls She in turn would be honourably given some constitutional post “No decision has been taken yet” was Shah’s cryptic reply But he was assertive in saying that the “BJP will win the next elections in Gujarat with a two-thirds majority” The stress on BJP was meaningful He indicatedthat a Cabinet reshuffle was on the cards but gave no clue as to when it could happen Was he withholding re-structuring within the party for that “Don’t link restructuring in the party with the Cabinet reshuffle They are two different things Anyone can go from here to there and come here from there I can send anyone from party to government and accept anyone from government to party position It all depends on requirement and circumstances" he added Written by Khaled Ahmed | Updated: May 12 2014 11:14 pm The massacre of the Shia in Pakistan since 2002 has been caused by edicts of apostatisation issued by a madrasa of Lucknow Top News It may shock many Indians to know that the massacre of the Shia in Pakistan since 2002 has been caused by edicts of apostatisation issued by a madrasa of Lucknow One may also connect the trauma of sectarian killings in Iraq today to a fund moved from Lucknow in the 18th century to construct the Hindia Canal that turned the desiccated Shia shrines of Najaf and Karbala into agricultural land seducing Sunni nomadic tribes into settling down as Shia farmers and thus converting Iraq into a Shia-majority country A recent report on Sunni-Shia riots in Lucknow appearing in Muslims in Indian Cities: Trajectories of Marginalisation (2012) by Laurent Gayer and Christophe Jaffrelot (editors) speaks of the current Muslim-versus-Muslim sectarian riots in a city where literary Urdu was born at the hands of three great classical poets Anees Dabeer and Mir all of them Shia Speaking this language in a chaste accent the majority Sunni Muslims of Lucknow fight sanguinary battles with Shias during the month of Muharram In his paper in the above book “A Minority within a Minority: The Shias of Kashmiri Mohalla Lucknow” Gilles Verniers tells us: “Lucknow is a city of hills and dales where altitude once defined status The rulers of Awadh a Shia dynasty that established itself in the city in the late eighteenth century distributed lands and properties to their administrators and courtiers in the higher reaches of the hills The commoners labourers and orderlies of the state and the court were concentrated in the lower parts darker more congested and prone to water logging” Then between 1775 and 1778 Kashmiri Pandits migrated to the city as able administrators for Asaf-ud-Dowlah the fourth Shia Nawab of Awadh who had shifted his capital from Faizabad to Lucknow They were soon joined by Muslim families mostly Shias who also hailed from Kashmir and were directly or indirectly connected to the royal family and its court or served the Awadh state as high-ranking officials Then came the British cutting the mutinous Shia down to size after 1857 Fortunes declined in the 1950s after zamindari was abolished under land reforms and better-educated Hindus moved out to better jobs This small area started mutating into a slum covering an area of 12 sq km and housing a population of 39319 mostly Shia Muslims Unfortunately Lucknow has earned a bad name today not because of Hindu-Muslim riots but Shia-Sunni violence among the poor Muslim community reflecting too what is happening in Pakistan Iraq and Syria today Following the 1979 Khomeini revolution in Iran the Sunni Arabs of the Gulf and Saudi Arabia felt threatened by Iranian irredentism They first approached Pakistani dictator Zia-ul-Haq and then of all places Lucknow Zia imposed a new tax (zakat) on Sunnis but included Shias too which was not according to Islamic law provoking the Shia to stage their first angry march on Islamabad Saudi Arabia then approached the Sunni head of the famous seminary Nadwatul Ulema of Lucknow to write two books to incite hatred of the Shia in the entire Islamic world The first was a condemnation of Iran’s Imam Khomeini and the second was a compilation of fatwas (edicts) from the madrasas of India and Pakistan declaring the Shia as kaafir and therefore liable to extermination for succumbing to apostasy In 1986 the Deobandi seminaries of Pakistan and India had issued fatwas of apostatisation against the Shia population and thus upheld the manifesto of Sipah-e-Sahaba a party formed in 1985 in Pakistan on the basis of its demand that the Shia be declared non-Muslim by the state of Pakistan through an amendment to the constitution The state had already set the precedence of apostatising a Muslim community the Ahmadis and declaring them non- Muslim under the second amendment of 1974 The anti-Shia edicts (fatwas) were “managed” through a scholar of India Manzur Numani then head of Nadwatul Ulema of Lucknow who had earlier written a book against Imam Khomeini and Iran Funded by the Saudi charity Rabita Alam Islami (World Islamic League) he wrote to the Deobandi seminaries of India and Pakistan asking them to give their juristic opinion on the Shia faith The “masterpiece” he achieved came in the shape of a collection of fatwas printed serially in the Lucknow-based journal Al Furqan from December 1987 to July 1988 Yoginder Sikand a noted Indian scholar of Islam laments: “Even madrasas considered somehow more ‘open’ and ‘modern’ are not free from the virus of sectarianismOne of the Nadwa’s leading teachers Manzur Numani penned numerous diatribes against the Shias in the wake of the Iranian Revolution branding them as infidels and insisting that Shi’ism had nothing to do with ‘authentic’ Islam whatsoever” In 2003 when the first batch of the Shia Hazara community was massacred in Quetta Balochistan these fatwas of Lucknow were first distributed across the city I noticed that pages from the book of Numani’s fatwas — which I possessed — had been photocopied enlarged and distributed in the city before the massacre Now a word about the nexus between Lucknow and the ongoing Iraqi implosion The conversion of Iraqi Arabs was owed among other factors to the “bequests” that came from the Nawab of Awadh who was to rule Lucknow first rescuing a waterless and desiccated Najaf from death through the construction of the “Hindia Canal” from the Euphrates then through permanent stipends to the Shia jurists of the city (Thanks to this lifesaving Indian canal Najaf today has a surplus economy run by a cleric now Grand Ayatollah who migrated to Iraq from Jalandhar India in 1947) The fertility of the land around Najaf and Karbala ruled then by Turkey attracted the desert Arabs to agriculture while the Ottoman bureaucracy encouraged them to own land so that tax could be collected from them The well-endowed Iranian Shia jurists threatened by repeated raids from the Wahhabis of Arabia against the Shrines of Najaf and Karbala began to proselytise intensively among the Arab tribes till most of them converted In the 19th century Iraq had already become a Shia-majority state The one big factor was the corpse traffic (naql al-janaez) that accounted for nearly 20000 dead bodies of Shias from Iran and India every year for the purpose of burial at the shrines of Najaf and Karbala The practice was old and had stemmed from the hadith of the sixth Shia Imam Jafar al-Sadiq that “being next to Ali a day is more favourable than seven hundred years of worship” The coming of the corpses had its own economics that attracted a lot of commerce to the city of Najaf Yitzhak Nakash in his book The Shi’is of Iraq (1994) tells us that Lucknow gave more than a million rupees annually from the nawab’s treasury for the upkeep of the Shia shrines in Iraq The money went to the Iranian Shia jurists settled around these shrines It is unfortunate that Shi’ism which once informed the Muslim-Indian culture and also changed Hindu attitudes through its syncretic character is now changing into a dogma that it never was The Shia in Pakistan and India are rediscovering their faith as a schism that took place in early Islam and are readying themselves for a new armageddon The writer is consulting editor ‘Newsweek Pakistan’ For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New
