transfer of power into your hands supported by hundreds of millions of citizens hopeful of a glorious new era after a dismal period of misrule In a significant part of the oath you took when you were sworn in as prime minister you promised to uphold the unity and integrity of India Members of your council of ministers who were sworn in after you also read the same solemn oath that was broadcast live to every corner of the country from the grand forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan In the six months since May 26 you have repeatedly asserted here and in the many foreign lands you have visited that you are committed to inclusive growth and development for all segments of our society You have also specifically highlighted the loyalty and patriotism of Indian Muslims These declarations are reassuring During the same six months hate speeches and incendiary acts against Muslims by several individuals and groups belonging to the Sangh Parivar are deeply wounding False accusations of “love jihad” directed against Muslims in Uttar Pradesh during June-September recent aggressive and provocative actions against minority groups in five outlying areas of Delhi and communal tensions in other states promoted by majority mahapanchayats BJP legislators and Parivar activists have brazenly contradicted your commitments and declarations As prime minister of all of India you cannot and should not look away from these affronts to your authority You are greatly admired for your commanding presence and your firm and bold actions It is now time for you to restrain through words and deeds all activities individuals and groups that subvert the unity and integrity of the nation Muslim terrorists and extremists are being firmly and forthrightly dealt with Those who seek to terrorise Muslims and some other minorities should also be apprehended regardless of their political connections The rule of law and the equal protection of laws must apply to all citizens of this country The rule of law must also apply to those who wish to desecrate the rainbow culture of India — a vital issue that is beyond the scope of this letter Delhi the great capital city epitomises that old but still relevant cliché about our vast and varied nation — unity in diversity All attempts to turn this proudly multicultural and multi-faith city into a warren of warring ghettos cannot be tolerated by you In the context of the impending Delhi assembly polls electoral campaigns that deliberately disturb social and communal harmony need to be firmly controlled You may recall that ever since 1969 the Shiv Sena with the encouragement of successive Congress regimes has converted Bombay-Mumbai a city that was India’s most vibrant commercial centre into a morass of divided localities The violent disruption on November 12 of the proceedings of the Maharashtra Vidhan Sabha by Shiv Sena and Congress MLAs provided yet another example of the depths to which Mumbai has been made to sink Delhi cannot be allowed to go the Mumbai way The historic capital of India ruled over the centuries by Prithviraj Chauhan Shah Jahan Viceroy Willingdon Jawaharlal Nehru and now by you Narendra Modi must be a centre of progress peace and harmony — a shining example of your vision of building a glorious country You should be esteemed as the Vijay Bharat Samrat much beyond a Hindu Hriday Samrat Yours with hope Jawid Laiq The writer is a Delhi-based political correspondent For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsHow do you improve a season that was the last campaign What a season it turned out to be for Real Madrid last time around They became first ever team to retain the UEFA Champions League (Milan Ajax Juventus Valencia Manchester United and Bayern Munich had come close with two successive finals) after Arrigo Sacchi’s immortal AC Milan side did it nearly three decades ago in the European Cup era Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos Reuters They bested the multiple Scudetto-winning treble-chasing Juventus team 4-1 in a lopsided final in Cardiff Well-oiled sides such as Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid were felled by the wayside in the earlier knockout rounds The calm exuded by the Real Madrid midfield after falling 0-2 down against Atletico Madrid after 16 minutes (protecting a 3-0 first leg lead) was the stuff of legend Whatever their opponents threw at them that season Real Madrid seemed to find an answer to every question posed After all it isn’t every day that a team has scored in each competitive fixture of the season Every outfield squad member (barring the often injured Fabio Coentrao) got on the scoresheet Even for a team of Real’s firepower it is a tad unusual While it is true that Real Madrid have often sacrificed the La Liga in pursuit of continental glory last season they won the domestic and continental double for the first time since 1957-58 There it was history in black and white and in more ways than one Three Champions Leagues in four years is a record that even Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona couldn’t achieve If this isn’t the makings of a dynasty it would be tough to define one Or have they reached the end of a cycle Looking at the squad composition it seems unlikely For one the only outfield players over the age of 30 were Pepe Cristiano Ronaldo Luka Modric and Sergio Ramos This isn’t a squad that needed an overhaul; a few touches here and there would keep it going Veteran centre-back Pepe has been replaced with a younger playerin 20-year-old Jesus Vallejo Sergio Ramos has a year or two of mileage left at the topmost level and if Ronaldo’s fitness management is as good as last year he won’t be going anywhere in a hurry Last year the team did struggle with fluidity during Modric’s absences but the swift signing of Spanish U21 starlet of Dani Cebellos (who was the player of the tournament in the UEFA U21 European Championships of 2017) and the presence of fellow midfield schemer Isco and able deputy of Mateo Kovacic should soothe the anxiety surrounding the well-being of the diminutive indefatigable Croatian maestro The team also suffered (relatively) from the absences of two key players who had no real replacements last season: the defensive midfielder Casemiro and the left back Marcelo While second choice left back Fabio Coentrao was present in theory Danilo and Nacho were often preferred ahead of him when Marcelo was ruled out for selection On the other hand last year’s squad did not have a natural replacement for Casemiro who had a splendid season Yes Toni Kroos Mateo Kovacic and Modric can hustle but truth be told they are no match for Casemiro’s heavy artillery Hence the recall of Real youth teamer Marcos Llorente was a no-brainer given his performances on loan at Alaves last season where he averaged 38 tackles and 27 interceptions per game Given his added bite in midfield Real Madrid can feel confident that they have cover in this position Similarly the acquisition of his Alaves teammate Theo Hernandez is a natural fit as well He is young swift and blessed with an able left foot Marcelo can perhaps finally hope for a few matches off during the lengthy season Where might troubles crop up in this campaign Real Madrid are hoping to do better and have ambitiously aimed for six trophies during the season This implies being in peak shape for more than 60 matches No doubt Zinedine Zidane did an admirable job by rotating and keeping his squad fresh and motivated for most of the season but there was also an undeniable fallout Last season’s Real Madrid was probably one of the most deep squads in recent memory To give an indication of the riches available on Zidane’s bench Spanish hitman Alvaro Morata and Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez (Isco worked himself back into the side with Gareth Bale’s lengthy layoff) were ever present when the moment presented itself These two players of obvious quality contributed 31 of the 173 competitive goals scored by Real Madrid last season One of the reasons why Real could rest Ronaldo or didn’t feel the absence of Bale’s scoring was because Rodriguez and Morata more than ably chipped in with key goals throughout the campaign Understandably they have moved on to greener pastures seeking more playing time at Chelsea (Morata) and Bayern Munich (James) but Real will miss their cutting edge from the bench Real Madrid’s players joke with Cristiano Ronaldo as they celebrate their Supercup victory against FC Barcelona AFP Last season Zidane could comfortably play his ‘second string’ squad in the knowledge that their quality on auto-pilot was good enough to get a result against a mid-table team But this lack of equivalent firepower this time around might hurt them in their quest for glory this season Ronaldo and Karim Benzema are the regular forwards with the young Borja Mayoral hoping to get a cup game or two but a scoring slump or an injury should make things really interesting Now with Ronaldo’s five game suspension it remains to be seen if Real will be slow off the starting blocks and puts undue pressure on whatever’s left of the striking unit In any case getting a star striker to play second fiddle to either Benzema or Ronaldo is all but ruled out and it is hard to find alternatives to Morata’s quality with less than half a month left in the transfer window Real Madrid will have to hope for their squad to come through like they did last season or this has to be Bale’s breakout year In comparision the departures of Rodriguezand Danilo are much easier to digest compared to Morata’s given the squad composition Los Merengues have plenty of midfielders of the attacking variety and Nacho can fill ably in at right back But given Dani Carvajal’s streak with injury and yellow cards it would make sense for Real to sign a full-time deputy rather than rely on Nacho and Achraf Hakimi With a mostly settled squad Real Madrid should aim for defending their league title and the Club World Cup With a Neymar-shaped headache out of the Camp Nou a Morata-less Real should have enough in the tank to win the league The cup competitions involve getting the luck of the draw at some stage hence a semifinal appearance should be the bare minimum expectation Squad-wise identification of world-class successors to Ronaldo Benzema and Ramos would be a nice bonus No doubt this season will be a vastly different test for Zinedine Zidane and his men By: IANS | Mumbai | Published: November 19 2015 7:20 pm Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar says he is a “mad elephant” when it comes to the
