Notwithstanding Justice AP Sen’s pertinent observation in Lilly Kurian versus Sr Lewina and others (1978) “the protection of the minorities is an article of faith in the Constitution of India” this principle has been under continuous attack Earlier this month Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi submitted before the Supreme Court that Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) was never intended by Parliament to be a Muslim university This rekindles a sensitive and old controversy about the minority character of this historic university Setting aside the political fury generated by this controversy it is time to pause and ponder over this issue dispassionately as it not only involves many legal questions of great significance but is also intrinsically linked to the sentiments of India’s largest minority The legal battle over the AMU’s minority character dates back to October 20 1967 when the Supreme Court in S Azeez Basha and another versus Union of India deviating from the broad spirit in which it had decided other cases on educational rights of minorities erroneously concluded on narrow and technical grounds that the AMU was established by the Central legislature and not by Muslims This led to a wave of angry campaigns by Muslims across the country After a prolonged struggle in 1981 Parliament passed an amendment to the 1920 act to restore the AMU’s minority status The word “establish” in the title of the act was deleted and Section 2(l) and Subsection 5(2)(c) were added clarifying that the university was “an educational institution of their choice established by the Muslims of India” and which “was subsequently incorporated” as the AMU Furthermore the AMU was entrusted with the responsibility of promoting “the educational and cultural advancement of the Muslims of India” Most agitating Muslims believed that though not perfect the amendment had overruled Azeez Basha and finally the AMU’s minority character had been restored But to their shock first a single-judge bench and later a division bench of the Allahabad High Court in 2005 once again held that the AMU was not a minority university In the opinion of the court the 1981 amendment was in itself not sufficient to overrule Azeez Basha as it left Sections 3 4 and 6 which constituted its basis unamended Surprisingly the court even questioned the competence of Parliament to overrule the Supreme Court decision as it was “disentitled to assume the role of a court of appeal” The moot question in this case is who established the AMU If we accept the reasoning of the Supreme Court in Azeez Basha it simply means that a religious or linguistic minority is debarred from establishing a university inasmuch as a university can only be established either by an act of the Central or state legislature This contradicts Azeez Basha’s own position that an educational institution for the purpose of Article 30(1) includes a university as well Can we just brush aside the long history of the establishment of the AMU a part of which was reproduced in the judgment itself Can we overlook the fact that a sum of Rs 30 lakh was collected by Muslims in 1920 to constitute a permanent endowment to meet the recurring expenses of the proposed university And if Muslims knew that the AMU would be like any other university would they have taken such pains to collect funds or surrendered the Mohammedan Anglo Oriental (MAO) College which even in the view of the court was a minority institution If the AMU had nothing to do with Muslims the governor general would not have congratulated them when the AMU Act of 1920 was passed Is the word “Muslim” in the title of the university without any relevance In fact the confusion seems to emanate from the blurring of the distinction between the words “establish” and “incorporate” Founding a university afresh with all its buildings and other infrastructure is altogether different from merely incorporating or upgrading an existing functional institution We should not overstate the role of the Central legislature and underplay the role of those who really founded the AMU The role of the 1920 act had more declaratory than constitutive value The 1920 act merely gave recognition to an existing entity and did not “establish” it We should not forget that Muslims established the AMU in the only manner in which a university at that time could have been established The matter of the AMU’s minority character raises a larger issue of conflict between the judiciary and legislature Parliament through the 1981 amendment had clarified all doubts that had arisen due to the Azeez Basha judgment After this amendment all disputes on the AMU’s minority character should have come to an end Holding the view that the 1981 act had not altered the entire basis of Azeez Basha is erroneous In fact the entire confusion stems from a literal and narrow interpretation of the word “establish” and a wrong inference drawn from the AMU’s long history Parliament in fact had altered the entire basis of Azeez Basha by declaring in unambiguous term that the “AMU was established by the Muslims of India” Tara Chand an eminent historian of modern India once succinctly remarked “it will be a falsification of the history of India if it is asserted from any quarter that the AMU was not established by the Muslims and primarily for the educational advancement of the Muslims of India” It is the duty of the government to ensure that the rights guaranteed to minorities are not turned into a “teasing illusion and promise of unreality” The writer is professor of

practice games at the start of the tournament that Bangladesh will make it to the finals (Source: Reuters) Related News “I actually predicted that Bangladesh would go through and there were friends around in the dressing room who made fun of me but here they are” In a chat with Star Sports at the end of the South Africa match R Ashwin sort of let it slip what a few in the Indian dressing room thought about Bangladesh when he made his prediction during the practice games at the start of the tournament Not only had they come through to the semis the Tigers were also threatening to run away with a huge total Interestingly it was Ashwin who was under the kosh in the middle overs — it wasn’t as if he was bowling badly but Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim were showing great composure and skill At one point Tamim reeled off a hat-trick of boundaries against Ashwin and an over later the off-spinner was off the attack Bangladesh were 142 for 2 in 25 overs when Virat Kohli brought in Kedar Jadhav At his best he brings to mind Virender Sehwag’s off-spin But he realised that he needed to something more than that if he were not to bleed runs And so he lowered his arm went almost side-arm — the bowling arm dropped to 45 degrees and he started to confuse the Bangladeshis For the most part it would seem like tripe and hence easy pickings for the batsmen and to an extent it is but three things can happen with this action on a good day: the side-arm creates a deception over length; the batsmen aren’t sure whether it would be fuller or about to drop on a length Secondly depending on where the ball lands — on the shiny or non-shiny it can skid at varying pace Thirdly the bounce is usually low as the almost round-armish action and the angle at which it is released makes it difficult for the ball to land on seam But it’s obviously a risky thing to bowl too many as once deciphered the batsmen can wait and murder it The Bangladeshi batsmen were well-entrenched by then and probably didn’t think much of Jadhav As no self-respecting batsmen would Nothing much happened for the majority of the first two overs to change that opinion: short balls some wide as well as Jadhav couldn’t quite manage to get control over how much lower and further from the body his right arm was getting at release Then came the final ball of the second over Round-armish and it landed pretty short perhaps shorter than what Tamim perceived it to be He had set himself for the slog sweep but neither the length nor the pace was conducive for it It looped in much slower than he thought and he went all around it and the ball hit the stumps As the overs went by Jadhav started to mix them up pretty well — the arm went side-ish; at times it came out nice and straight; occasionally it whirred through quickly and the Bangladeshis were feeling the pressure In his sixth over he got his arm high and straight but the ball was seemingly clasped in his palms and floated out ever so slowly Rahim saw the extra-flight on it and charged down but the ball wasn’t coming down in a hurry And when it came it sort of dropped dead quickly — like the lob-bowlers of yore — and Rahim was surprised by the dip His attempted drag-sweep was swallowed by Kohli at midwicket and India had done the turnaround act courtesy some ‘smart rubbish’ from Jadhav For all the latest Sports News download Indian

champions announced last week that they were ending the relationship with Honda and starting afresh with the French engines from the 2018 season (Source: AP) Top News The last three years with Honda have been a “proper disaster” for McLaren’s image but a new deal with Renault will revive the Formula One team’s fortunes according to racing director Eric Boullier The former champions announced last week that they were ending the relationship with Honda and starting afresh with the French engines from the 2018 season McLaren who were dominant with Honda in the late 1980s and early 1990s are currently ninth of 10 teams in the championship and have not won a race since 2012 when they had Mercedes power “When you look at the last three years it’s been a proper disaster for us in terms of credibility and getting new sponsors” Boullier told the official Formula One website (wwwformula1com) “In the next five years I am absolutely sure that we will go back to where McLaren belongs And with this bouncing back we get our credibility back and it will rebuild our sponsor portfolio “It might take two to three years” he added The teams’ share of revenues is distributed on a sliding scale relating to their championship position over a number of seasons as well as fixed payments to top teams like McLaren for historical performance Boullier said McLaren’s shareholders — Bahrain’s Mumtalakat holding company and Saudi-born businessman Mansour Ojjeh — had been brave to take a sporting choice “and not hurt McLaren” “They could have said ‘Let’s wait until Honda wakes up’” added the Frenchman The decision to split followed a number of missed targets but Boullier said a crucial moment came after pre-season testing when it became clear that Honda were off the pace Honda motorsport head Masashi Yamamoto whose company will move to Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso has accused McLaren of being a ‘systematic’ company that can find change hard to deal with Boullier denied that the two had been ‘talking past each other’ but said that he sometimes acted as peacemaker to help bridge the culture gap He recognised the separation had not been easy “The whole story for them as it was for us was to recreate the legacy of the past On paper everything looked right Just the way it’s been done was not right” he said “We can’t wait — but they (Honda) can get the reward with somebody else I am so glad that they have decided to stay in Formula One and commit to another team” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy Manoj Kumar/Reuters New Delhi: India’s high-profile RBI governor is likely to come under political pressure to retreat from his hawkish stance on inflation if BJP leader Narendra Modi wins power in the general election Strategists in Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) confident that his jobs-first policy pitch will secure a strong voter mandate suggest that they would prefer to have one of their own at the helm of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) That sets the stage for a confrontation with RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan who since being appointed last September has enjoyed an unusually smooth ride in a country where governments often treat the RBI as a punchbag for their own policy failings The former International Monetary Fund chief economist is widely viewed as India’s most capable technocrat winning the respect of investors for his handling of a currency crisis that hit Asia’s third-largest economy last year "It will be a big loss of face for the country and would create a negative perception among foreign investors if the BJP removes the governor immediately after forming the government" said A Prasanna an economist at ICICI Securities Primary Dealership Ltd in Mumbai Raghuram Rajan could be under pressure if Modi comes to power Reuters Before moving to the RBI Rajan 51 served as chief economic adviser to the finance ministry under the Congress party-led government which opinion polls say faces defeat in the five-week national election starting on Monday BJP treasurer Piyush Goyal has attacked Rajan over a series of interest rate hikes intended to curb inflation now running at double the RBI’s longer-term 4 percent target at a time when economic growth has fallen to its slowest in a decade Rajan has raised the repo policy rate three times by a total of 75 basis points to 8 percent "Governor Rajan is only aggravating the problems and making them worse by increasing interest rates" Goyal a leading strategist and fundraiser for the nationalist opposition party told the Economic Times Subramanian Swami a BJP ideologue and former cabinet minister with close ties to a Hindu grassroots movement that has shaped Modi’s thinking puts it more bluntly: "We can make it worthwhile for him to leave" Swami told Reuters "I would not be surprised if a government led by Narendra Modi removes the governor" said Satish Misra an analyst at the Observer Research Foundation a Delhi-based think-tank "Modi does not brook any opposition" GOOD COP BAD COP Rajan’s policy and academic credentials – he was a professor at Chicago’s Booth School of Business – qualify him as a card-carrying member of the policy jetset that gathers twice a year at the IMF’s Washington headquarters or at Group of 20 meetings Yet his autonomy as central bank governor is more circumscribed than that of his counterparts in the West who are typically nominated by the government but also accountable to lawmakers Under the RBI Act of 1934 Rajan serves at the pleasure of the government: "The central government may remove from office the Governor a Deputy Governor or any other Director" it says While no RBI governor has been sacked in the central bank’s 80-year history two have quit before completing their terms – most recently Sir Benegal Rama Rau who resigned in 1957 due to differences with the finance minister In that context analysts interpret the verbal broadsides as a softening-up exercise intended to secure greater RBI compliance with Modi’s expansionist credo To be sure Rajan has moderated his rhetoric on inflation but analysts said that is more a response to cooler inflation than anything else Arun Jaitley a BJP leader tipped to assume either the finance or home affairs portfolio in the next government has meanwhile avoided confrontation Asked about Rajan in a TV interview last month Jaitley said: "If someone is doing good job he will certainly continue" Manufacturers and traders a constituency of the right-wing BJP have complained that the RBI under Rajan has allowed the rupee to recover too strongly with a near 15 percent rally from last year’s slump hurting India’s export competitiveness The Confederation of Indian Industries (CII) has called for a cut in interest rates of 100 basis points and a more competitive exchange rate to support domestic manufacturers SAVVY OPERATOR Rajan’s former colleagues at the finance ministry say he is a pragmatic and politically savvy economist who may yet find a way to work with a BJP-led coalition government that pundits say is most likely to be formed after votes are tallied on May 16 For his part Rajan cautions that coalition building may not go as smoothly as bullish foreign investors may expect They have bought $10 billion in Indian stocks and bonds this year driving the BSE Sensex to record highs Speaking on Tuesday after the RBI kept its key rate unchanged Rajan cautioned that "we have to be prepared for some turmoil" in the event that the next government is not stable As long as the next government shows proper concern about the economy and the fiscal situation Rajan added "I would suspect that after an initial bout of turmoil there might be a reassessment which may be more positive" Those statements represent a careful deployment by Rajan of his credibility with markets to guard against any attempt by a BJP-led government to render his position untenable "It would not be easy to remove Rajan from a constitutional post" said a senior finance ministry official who spoke on condition of anonymity Explaining why he used the same words as Rajan: "It would lead to turmoil in the markets" Reuters" the BJP Delhi chief said.3 — though Virat Kohli might have played a huge role in usurping that role from him — and as a steadying hand at No. for many,Ludhiana,4 overs.Satarup is
