the era of the 1980s was about bringing a change and make it happen in reaction to mainstream cinema Top News Veteran filmmaker Govind Nihalani on Saturday said the era of the 1980s was about bringing a change and make it happen in reaction to mainstream cinema During that period people witnessed movies from his generation of filmmakers including Satyajit Ray and Mrinal Sen At a time when films like Qurbani Alibaba Aur 40 Chor Karz and Dostana were ruling the box office with heavy duty star cast glamour dance and music Nihalani says a movement of what was called “new cinema or parallel cinema” started to prove that such elements were not necessary to make a film work “When you ask how the films were made at that time… we had this movement going of new cinema or parallel cinema That movement essentially started as a reaction to mainstream cinema” Nihalani said here during a panel discussion at the Habitat Film Festival Also Read |What we had was a solid relationship: Govind Nihalani “It brought out a thought that it was not necessary that you follow a pattern which was established by what we call now mainstream cinema Which means you must have the presence of stars music dance there should be a happy ending… that was very important and that good wins over evil all the time” he added The 76-year-old and the recipient of six National Film Awards said the filmmakers on the flip side proved that the glamour quotient was not necessary and that films that connect people can also be appreciated and work “You can make films that connect with the people Other elements which connect you with the audience which requires more human empathy concern with anything other than being happy a the end of it all… The fact that you can make the difference You can make the change happen “When we started making films and the young generation that came in they came with the idea that you can change something and that change is possible At the core of it that was the thought The stories that we chose it had no stars glamorous locations… the whole thing was about the change and that we make it happen Stories were chosen in that mood” he added The other panelists include director Buddhadeb Dasgupta and filmmaker Avinash Das The Habitat Film Festival is being held till May 28 at the India Habitat Centre Other movies which are yet to be screened here include

explained, we think, So we are not expecting any strong outcome on this. the terror attacks in Dhaka by suspected IS militants that killed 22 people meant that the region itself has to gear up to face the new face of terror.One thing is obvious Over the last few decades with the rise of the Taliban Al-Qaeda and later the new toughened avatar of the IS Islam and the community has been increasingly associated with terrorism perhaps more than any other religious or ethnic groups Islamic scholars would tell you that the 7th Century religion which originally respects the ideals of religious pluralism is a victim of misinterpretation Its holy text has often been misinterpreted by terror groups to misguide the youth That is a known problem But when IS-like forces gain ground in India how will we tackle the problem India is a large secular democratic country unlike Syria or Afganisthan — where the governments have failed to offer a sense of security to its citizens making youth vulnerable to the coercion and brainwashing by militant groups But what is prompting Indian youth to do the same Islamic scholars in India have two sets of views on this issue Some Islamic experts acknowledge that there is indeed a problem of vested interests misinterpreting the Quran And perhaps its time for the Muslim community to wake up to the problem to take corrective measures “One of the main reasons why Muslim youths even those who are professionally educated fall prey to terrorist ideology is that they are misguided with misinterpreted versions of Quran” said Sheikh Mohammed Karakunnu Islamic scholar and assistant Ameer at Jamaat-e-Islami’s Kerala branch who has studied this issue for years “Often verses in the Quran are misinterpreted taking them only in the literal sense not in the contextual meaning It is ignorance about Islam” said Karakunnu who has authored two books on the approach of the Quran to war and the tolerance of Islam Karakunnu said the solution lies within Islam itself by finding the true sense of religious pluralism and correcting the misguided youth Karakkunnu explained that there were many instances especially in the eighth and ninth chapters of Quran that talk about war which often cause confusion These verses pertain to defending the self from enemies on the war front but are often misinterpreted as the right to overpower the dissenters within and outside the community he said Two prominent examples Chapter 8: verse 39: ‘And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder strife) and religion should be only for Allah’ According to Islamic scholars these verses were originally aimed at those tribes who were attacking Islam the Muslim empire but later misinterpreted as right to attack other religions Chapter 9: verse 123: ‘O you who believe fight those of the unbelievers near you and let them see how harsh you can be Know that Allah is with the righteous’ This one has a similar context According to Karakunnu this is originally meant against those fake believers who joined forces with enemies of the prophet in the war “Even within Islam the right to take on enemies lies with the government not with individuals or groups But that is what IS-like organisations do today” he added Karakkunnu noted that the increasing influence of social media among Islamic youth has also caused the misinterpretations to spread making the youth vulnerable to terrorist ideology Abid Rasool Khan chairman of Hyderabad minority commission largely agreed with this view saying the problem arises when certain groups/sects within the community misguidethe youth with the use of wrong interpretations of the holy text and don’t see them in context Khan is someone who has been advocating the idea of letting the government being a part of the madrassa education system besides bringing in transparency in their financial dealings “This parallel education system does not help the community” Khan said Political agenda But this is one set of views There are others who stress that many such cases against Indian Muslim youths are fabricated SQR Ilyas president Welfare Party of India and member of the All-India Muslim Personal Law Board is one such person Ilyas believes that there is a political agenda behind the arrests of Muslim youth to brand them as terrorists “In many of these cases where Muslim youths are linked with terror activities these youths have visited only certain websites Not that they have carried some weapons or something They are now branded as terrorists” Ilyas said Wajahat Habibullah former chairman of national minority commission too has voiced a similar opinion “Many of these cases are fabricated Many of these young people are picked up on shallow grounds later to be found innocent” Habibullah said While the exact nature of investigation and the strength of evidence are matters of debate and judicial interpretation the fact remains that there is indeed a problem of Islam-linked terror taking root in India something that the country cannot ignore any longer And while meeting this challenge one thing must be borne in mind: The fight against radicalisation of youths by terror outfits such as IS is not Islam’s alone It is India’s fight By: Express Web Desk | Published: September 18 2017 7:33 pm Romelu Lukaku celebrating his goal against

immensely likeable figure in the dressing room Source: Express File Related News Before being recalled to the Test squad for the Sri Lanka series to fill in for the injured Murali Vijay the selectors’ message to Shikhar Dhawan seemed loud enough: They had begun to sketch beyond him For after the Kolkata Test against New Zealand last year he was seldom considered during India’s perpetual injury-crisis at the top Such was the desperate extent of it that even an over-the-hill Gautam Gambhir was thrust an unlikely break Suffice it to say that Dhawan was not even picked for the A tour to South Africa leave alone being overlooked for Abhinav Mukund in the initial touring squad to Sri Lanka His comeback hence was partly mitigated by circumstances and partly by a lack of daring on the selectors’ part Dhawan has been in fine one-day form He not only scored truckloads of runs in the Champions Trophy but also looked in imperious touch batting as though in a trance He also tightened up his game outside the off-stump considerably a vulnerability that conspired his meagre returns abroad It also favoured him that the selectors were conservative enough to not pick someone like Priyank Panchal the highest run-getter in Ranji Trophy last season Or even his Gujarat skipper Parthiv Patel despite him hoarding 128 runs in his last three innings as opener Gambhir meanwhile seems well past his use-by date Dhawan therefore was the logical and convenient choice in such a short notice There are several factors that work for him He is vastly experienced likely to be untroubled by the home-like conditions of Sri Lanka where he scored his last Test hundred and moreover is an immensely likeable figure in the dressing room The players have been often vocal in their praise about him being an ultimate team-man That he enjoys others’ success That he helps youngsters Suresh Raina even termed him “Sufi-like” and his opening partner Vijay too has spoken warmly of him in the past So there aren’t too many crooked eyebrows Bizarre quandary After all he might rekindle his form and stretch his career and in hindsight the selectors could be justified but his comeback deflects the focus to another bizarre quandary India have belatedly found themselves in While they have two extremely pedigreed openers in Vijay and Rahul the pair has had an uncanny knack of picking nay wooing injuries It seems the handiwork of some strange forces in conspiracy as when Vijay returns from an injury Rahul invariably picks one or the other way around Since Rahul’s maiden hundred at Sydney in 2015 he and Vijay have opened in just eight of the 25 Tests in this span Specifically in only 13 innings Only in the South Africa series was Rahul fit and yet didn’t feature when he made way for an in-form Dhawan who incidentally was returning from an injury While Rahul missed six of these Tests due to one injury or the other or as in Fatuallah a bout of flu Vijay was kept out of five Tests in the same span by injuries to finger wrists and shoulder Resultantly Rahul has had four different partners besides Vijay—Pujara Mukund Dhawan and Parthiv Vijay had batted with three others—Dhawan Parthiv and Gambhir In fact it was in the first innings against Australia at Ranchi that India’s supposedly best opening pair around brought up their first ever 50-plus partnership Otherwise they average just a shade beneath 18 together The latter stat shouldn’t spark concern as they have individually prospered both have gulped up four hundreds each in this span and it must be a matter of time before they stitched their first hundred-plus partnership Nonetheless a pair of injury-susceptible openers lends instability to a team which should be the last botheration when you are on the road The sooner they somehow solve the mystery the better it is for their overseas prospects Abhinav walking on thin ice It also diverts a bit of attention to Abhinav Mukund as to whether he by virtue of being the first-choice standby opener should be opening with KL Rahul in the first Test at Galle Recent patterns suggest that he would In the first Test of the West Indies series at North Sound Dhawan was given precedence over Rahul Later Karun Nair was dropped right after his triple hundred when Ajinkya Rahane returned So by that precedence it should be Abhinav and not Dhawan who would pair up with Rahul But Abhinav will have sufficient reasons to be badgered by Dhawan’s shadows A couple of failures would mean Dhawan would supersede him You can only feel for Abhinav who has been a consistent accumulator in the domestic circuit for nearly a decade but seldom was offered the liberty of an extended run More failings and simultaneously a few good knocks by Dhawan would not only pedal him down the pecking order but also could imperil his international career It would also imply that Dhawan could board the flight to South Africa Conversely even if Dhawan fails he might still squeeze into a seat in the flight as India will invariably pack their side with three openers For his experience likeability in the dressing room and the short-form runs would be factored in For all the latest
