a day after a 12-year-old child Imtiyaz Khan was hanged to death along with a 32-year-old cattle trader Majlum Ansari They were killed by cow protection vigilantes in the Balumath block of Latehar district in BJP-ruled Jharkhand The BJP executive committee did not think it necessary to condemn this horrific crime In the lessons of nationalism that the executive sought to teach the country the Constitution has no place Present at the meeting was Jhakhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das He had virtually justified the crime He had said “There is a lot of cattle-smuggling in the area Just like Uttarakhand in Jharkhand trafficking cows across the border is not permissible” Last year BJP leaders had justified the Dadri killing of Mohammad Akhlaq on grounds — rather rumours — that he had killed a cow and eaten beef Well-intentioned people were scrambling to prove that this was a lie missing the subtext of the statements that the killing of a cow was a crime that was grave enough to justify death Similarly in the context of the lynching in Balumath the subtext of the chief minister’s statement is that the killing of cattle smugglers is justified Imtiyaz Khan’s mother Najma Khatun was in her small hut in the remote village of Arhara when the beaten and broken body of her child was brought down from the tree in the early morning of March 18 A week earlier the child had consoled his mother promising that he would take care of his sisters While relating this story to me her eyes sore with a million tears welled up again “But when he needed us there was no one to take care of him” she said His father Azad Khan had suffered an accident two years earlier and so could not manage the sometimes long and arduous trek of 20 km or more through forests and along stony paths Since the elder son is disabled it was left to Imtiyaz to herd the animals to wherever the cattle fairs were held That day he took six animals and went along with his father’s friend Majlum from Nawadah village who had two bulls for sale It was safer In the fight for secularism one is often unaware of how the absence of it in different spheres affects ordinary lives Cattle traders most of them Muslim have to plan carefully to find neighbours who will travel with them or another trader who is also going to the same fair before they venture out with their animals even if as in the Balumath case the cattle they are taking for sale are bulls and not cows The aim of these committees is not so much cow protection as it is to target a community There are 14 registered FIRs in cases related to so-called cow protection since the BJP took office in Jharkhand — a fraction of the actual number since in most cases victims are too scared to do so like Majlum Majlum had been targeted by the cow protection gangs earlier The dregs of society extortionists cheats and criminals gang up in the guise of these committees to browbeat Muslim cattle traders like Majlum to pay them for safe passage Saira Bibi Majlum’s frail wife mother of four little girls and a boy told the police that just a month or so ago Majlum had been threatened by a group of so-called cow protectors to give up the trade He took the threats seriously enough to go to their village Jhabar meet the group with certificates of cattle sale to prove the legality of his work But what they wanted was not certificates but money Those arrested for his murder are from this same village Saira says “If we had the money we would have paid it but we live a hand-to-mouth existence” You can feel her grief it surrounds her her hands tremble as she rocks her baby just a few months old She says “My husband was scared but he had no alternative We are landless with no other income not even a BPL card to lessen our expenses so he had to take the animals that day” She carries the burden of earlier tragedies She is the only surviving daughter of aged parents having lost five brothers due to illnesses generated by poverty and lack of medical attention Majlum took over the responsibility and shifted with her and the children to take care of her parents in their village Now he too is gone Majlum’s body showed marks of brutality as did the child’s This was a hate crime the nature of which a hanging of the bodies was linked to a wider mes-sage: Subordinate yourself to the agenda of Gau Mata or meet the same fate The killers and their committees have political patronage For example in Balumath a BJP leader runs an outfit called the Gau Raksha Samiti His Facebook posts include pictures of violence including one of Bajrang Dal criminals in Shamli publicly parading an injured man described in the post as a “cow killer” Some in the lynch gang reportedly belong to his outfit But he has not been questioned To conceal the links the police spread the lie of a personal dispute of rivalry between gangs of cattle traders and so on At the same time the police chief of the district Anoop Birtharay admitted “These people are criminals They have previously snatched animals from traders and threatened them” Precisely The ideological political and organisational links between those acting in the name of cow protection and those in power have created an environment in which the police look the other way until such unspeakable crimes such as the lynching occur Instead of accountability on these issues the BJP wants to divert the attention of the country to an utterly falsely premised debate on “nationalism” based on selective symbols and slogans such as “Bharat Mata ki Jai” The politics of Mohan Bhagwat the RSS chief and Asaduddin Owaisi the AIMIM leader represent two sides of the same divisive coin They both benefit from a communally polarised nation In 2002 on the 55th anniversary of India’s Independence from the ramparts of the Red Fort Atal Bihari Vajpayee chose the slogan not of “Bharat Mata ki Jai” but of “Jai Hind” which he repeated three times It is of little consequence to most people precisely because no one slogan can be made mandatory to prove “nationalism” For the Hindutva agenda it is the slogan of Bharat Mata as a symbol of “nationalism” today; tomorrow it will be that of “Gau Mata” as the “national animal” which represents “nationalism” The result of such politics was seen that early morning on a tree in Balumath The writer is a member of the CPM politburo For all the latest

Gambhir the third-choice opener had joined the Indian cricket team in Kolkata on Wednesday evening Top News There was a difference of opinion over picking a replacement for the injured opener KL Rahul for the remaining two Tests of the ongoing series According to a BCCI insider Karnataka middle-order batsman Manish Pandey was initially considered before the selectors preferred a like-for-like candidate; with the understanding that Shikhar Dhawan would be chosen ahead of Gambhir in the playing XI Dhawan lost his place as Murali Vijay’s opening partner following Rahul’s emergence in the West Indies but he has been part of the original squad and is likely to get in by default India had an optional training session at Eden Gardens on Wednesday and Dhawan along with Virat Kohli Ajinkya Rahane Rohit Sharma and Wriddhiman Saha had a long stint at the nets The third-choice opener Gambhir had landed in Kolkata on Wednesday evening Alongside the senior players Haryana offie Jayant Yadav Ishant Sharma’s replacement for the second Test enjoyed a decent workout Here’s a boy who has been given the chance to have a feel of the Indian dressing room because he performed well in domestic cricket And maybe the selectors missed a trick by not handing out a similar opportunity to a young opener instead of bringing in a player in the twilight of his career The Indian Test team has been going through a purple patch since Sri Lanka last year And this success presented the selectors with the ideal scenario to blood in youngsters with the likes of Mayank Agarwal and Abhinav Mukund providing options The erstwhile selection committee led by Sandeep Patil had recalled Ashish Nehra and Yuvraj Singh ahead of the World T20 earlier this year But back then India had hit a slump in limited-overs cricket Several young players had failed to rise to the required standards And with the World T20 approaching they decided to pick horses for courses The situation in Tests is different Serial victories have opened up scopes for experiments Also flying in someone like Gambhir as a standby option — he has 56 Tests behind him — looks a little odd More so since Rahul’s absence doesn’t impact the opening combination experience-wise Vijay is 32 and he has played 40 Tests Over the last couple of years he has proved himself as one of the most assured Test opener in the world If Vijay were out Gambhir’s inclusion would have offered logic under the pretext of experience But with a tried and tested opening pair in place — Vijay and Dhawan have been opening the innings for India since March 2013 — a younger player might have deserved the apprenticeship According to the source Gambhir’s ability to play spin was a major reason for his recall “He is still an excellent player against spin and given that we have a long home season (13 Tests) this term it’s not a bad idea to have him in the scheme of things” he said India have put on 400-plus scores in an innings only twice in their last 10 completed Test matches In Sri Lanka last year Rangana Herath and Tharindu Kaushal had 28 Indian scalps between them Then South Africa’s Imran Tahir Simon Harmer Dean Elgar and Dane Piedt accounted for 33 wickets on Indian pitches Even in the West Indies Roston Chase had a five-wicket haul At Green Park in Kanpur also the hosts were put under pressure by Mitchell Santner Ish Sodhi and Mark Craig in the first innings Yes Gambhir will probably counter spin on a turning deck a lot better than some of the younger Indian batters But teams usually aim to move forward after overcoming a transition phase Good but others better The other logic during the discussion related to Rahul’s replacement was that Gambhir has been scoring runs in domestic cricket The Delhi left-hander had 488 runs at 3753 in eight matches in the last season’s Ranji Trophy In the Duleep Trophy this year he made 356 runs at 7120 in three matches Compare these with Agarwal who had 417 runs at 5212 in five Ranji matches last term and 420 runs in three Duleep matches As for Abhinav Mukund he missed last season’s Ranji Trophy but finished with an average of 8266 in the Duleep Trophy Pandey was a favourite to come in for Rahul albeit as a middle-order replacement A section felt that his quality — he was also fresh from his 77 against Australia A in an unofficial Test in Brisbane earlier this month — should be rewarded But the Gambhir-backers managed to drive home their point “Age shouldn’t be a factor Gambhir is experienced and he is scoring runs in domestic cricket” former chief selector Kiran
