Michael Clarke's men returned to bowl out Afghanistan for 142 in the 38th over for a 275-run victory in a mismatch between the most successful World Cup team and the tournament debutants.

  • After beef ban, Hindu groups force abattoirs to close

    By Meenakshi Sharma MUMBAI (Reuters) - Members of a Hindu nationalist group have forced several abattoirs in Maharashtra to shut after a law was passed banning the beef trade there, a leader of the group and a lawyer for meat traders said on Wednesday. The Vishwa Hindu Parishad, or World Hindu Council, a nationalist group linked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party, acted after winning a court order to stop the killing of bulls and bullocks. "Members of the VHP came to Deonar abattoir late at night and asked us to stop the slaughter, showing the copy of the High Court order," said Mohammad Ali Qureshi, president of the Bombay Suburban Beef Dealers Association. The beef trade is mainly controlled by minority Muslims, raising concern that the ban is driven by Modi loyalists pursuing a Hindu agenda.

  • Shoaib Akhtar criticised for mocking Pak cricket on Indian show

    Maverick former fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar's remarks mocking the state of affairs in Pakistan cricket on a popular Indian comedy show have evoked angry reactions from ex-players and officials in Karachi. Akhtar appeared with off-spinner Harbhajan Singh on the 'Comedy Nights with Kapil' show in India and some of his stinging remarks about the state of national cricket and his making fun off a former PCB head have not been well received in Pakistan. "I don't know why he was so critical about Pakistan cricket on an Indian channel because I know that he is a patriotic Pakistani when he played for the national team," former Test pacer Sarfraz Nawaz said.

  • Eating Beef Is Not Sinful

    In almost every part of the world, Beef is harvested from cows, bulls, heifers or goats etc. Acceptability of beef as a food source varies in different parts of the world according to the availability. Numerous Hindu scriptures are witnesses to such sacrifices. Being a Muslim, I’m afraid it would evoke undue reaction if I to reproduce what Dr. D N Jha, a Professor of History, Delhi University and member of ICHR, had written in his book ‘the Myth of the Holy Cow.’ Mr. Jha had received death threats over his book. Just to bring home the point, I am quoting the Hindu scriptures like Manusmriti, Vedas, Upanishads, Brahmins, Grihsutras, Dharmasutras and others.

  • For special treatment, go to Pakistan: Shiv Sena tells Muslims

    Mumbai: “If the Muslim community in India want any special treatment as Muslims, they should go to Pakistan,” the Shiv Sena warned. “If they (Muslims) want anything from this country, they must first accept India as their motherland and proclaim ‘Vande Mataram’. The edit was said to be in reaction to All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi’s speech in Nagpur March 1, where among other things, he demanded reservations for the Muslim community on the lines of Marathas in Maharashtra. Taking umbrage at Owaisi’s tone and tenor, the Shiv Sena reiterated its stance that reservations policy must be based on social criteria and not religious lines.
