and you haven’t had the repeat of this sort of mass murder, Years later, The flood also showed his versatility. Bihar,that the proverbial long arms could even reach people who wereconsidered to be a law unto themselves The context of that arrest was interesting — rejection of the anticipatory bail plea and issuance of a non-bailable warrant for giving a false affidavit mentioning only around one-and-half dozen cases as opposed toaround three dozen registered cases against him half of which pertained to heinous crimes such as murder kidnapping gun running etc A false affidavit was perhaps the least serious crime that he had committed in his criminal-political career But it meant that a regime change — ouster of Lalu-Rabri regime — could spell trouble for him A file photo of Mohammed Shahabuddin PTI In that Assembly election RJD was routed Bihar had come out of the 15 years of misrule of Lalu-Rabri Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) and BJP emerged triumphant That spelled doom for Shahabuddin called ‘Saheb’ by his believers and ‘Sahabu’ by the residents of the region Since the time Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD came to power in Bihar in 1990 Shahabuddin spelled terror in hearts and minds of people in the area What Gabbar Singh said in Sholay "Yahan se pachas pachas kos dur gaon mein." was true for people of Siwan for their two-time MLA and four-time MP No one would dare talk about him If anyone had to say anything negative he would first ensure that no one was around at least within audible distance and the conversation would take placein extreme confidentiality The account of crimes committed by him was chilling The list of his crimes and the way he eliminated his detractorsandchallengers was enough to instill fear in hearts and minds of many He would not even care for the then superintendent of police of the district — SK Singhal who realised this the hard way Shahabuddin and his men fired bullets at the SP a crime for which he could be convicted 11 years later when the Nitish government set up a fast track court to expedite trials against him This writer had a firsthand experience of the kind of fear Shahabuddin and his goons had over ordinary peoplein the area For his believers he was a demigod Thanks to an IAS officer CK Anil who was posted as district magistrate of Siwan in 2005 during President’s Rule the cases against Shahabuddin were pursued vigorously Initially no one believed that Sahabu could be brought to book Take for instance the case of a double murder case in 2004 for which he along with three of his associates were convicted by a special court in December 2015: this case was known as the acid murder case In August 2004 three brothers — Girish Satish and Rajiv Roshan — were abducted after a prolonged tiff between these men’s father Chandrakeshwar Prasad alias Chanda Babu and Shahabuddin’s men over possession of his shops in the main Siwan market Girish and Satish were killed by dipping them in acid Rajiv managed to flee but he was later killed by unidentified assailants a few days before he was to depose against Shahabuddin as a prime witness The list of victims is long There are multiple cases in which Shahabuddin has been convicted by a special court of law They have been challenged in higher courts but that’s due process Lalu Yadav had never been apologetic about Shahabuddin For his current ally and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar the arrest and a speedy trial against the former Siwan MP meant rule of law was in force in Bihar Nitish followers and even ordinary citizens of Bihar would single out his case to point out that Nitish meant business A series of convictions against Shahabuddin and others like him sent out a message that criminals wouldn’t be spared in his regime He had won the perception battle Lalu has now turned the tables on him Last month State Minority Welfare Minister Abdul Ghafoor from the RJD and RJD’s Raghunathpur MLA Harishankar Yadav made a courtesy call to Shahabuddin in Siwan jail The meeting took place over tea and snacks in the jailer’s official chamber After a video of this meet went viral the jailer was suspended But the minister remained defiant and his political boss Lalu dismissed the incident as a ‘routine’ matter A month later Lalu has honourably rehabilitated Shahabuddin in politics as a national executive member of RJD Shahabuddin and his followers had backed Lalu in the 2015Bihar Assembly elections so now it was time for the RJD chief to reward them Thisonly adds to Lalu’simage that he never discards his loyalists Second now that he is back in power he has started rewarding his men even if they areconvicted for heinous crimes Third it further cements the Muslim-Yadav socio-political coalition What does it mean for Nitish The JD(U) officially maintains that this is an internal matter of the RJD and has nothing to do with the Nitish government or the JD(U) So what if it impacts popular perception about Nitish Kumar Look at the numbers RJD-JD(U) has People knew that such things might happen and yet they decisively voted for this combination Remember Nitish was a bitter critic of Lalu till a year ago They are now friends and allies He may never be friends with Shahabuddin but may just turn a blind eye to the former MP’s activities Yes this move hurts Nitish’s image and public perception But one cannot prejudge anything in politics By: Tech Desk | Updated: December 18 2017 3:55 pm Reliance JioTV website is now

India has reasons to be ecstatic about the Mars mission as well as the American visit of its new leader who will be armed with the glory that a victory with a huge majority in a democracy of one plus

For Indians living in the US it is time to ask what does this mean for us We are a unique community The Indian diaspora is one of the most economically influential communities in the US A recent study published by IBNLive reported that as a community Indian Americans top the US Census charts as comprising the best-educated and highest-paid amongst the 381 million foreign-born Americans Yet we do not have much clout on Capitol Hill to help define the India-US relationship This is in contrast to other communities like Jews whose economic clout also translates into political power especially regarding American policy towards Israel There are about 31 million people of Indian origin in the US It is time for the Indian diaspora to show a strong interest in starting a platform for leaders of second-generation Indian Americans in the US and seeing India-US ties flourish Such interest is important to ensure Indian Americans become leaders in the US not just in business science medicine and engineering but also in politics and law and that negotiations between the two great nations result in policies that impact India positively Indians in the US should be proud of their origin and they have a duty to ensure that their presence is acknowledged and respected in the US Indian Americans must promote community interest in the US Outreach by Indian Americans to India and by Indian politicians to Indian Americans would be mutually beneficial Indian-Americans must showcase India’s strategic political and economic position in South Asia to the US Just as Japanese Americans gained respect in the US in the aftermath of World War II when Japan became powerful Indian Americans can expect the same under present circumstances As one of the few countries in Asia where the US enjoys a positive image India remains a friendly country to America Indian Americans would do well to take a leaf from the Jewish community’s book The community has engaged itself in an organised effort to ensure that its interests are well represented For a Jewish population of 53 million in the US the number of Jewish American politicians is staggering: 10 US senators out of 100; 22 members of the US House of Representatives out of 435; one state governor; five mayors of large cities; and three current Supreme Court justices out of nine For the Indian diaspora this moment is not just to cheer for

spectrum Indeed India’s policies on trade and intellectual property rights can be a trendsetter for developing countries The discussion on the role of access to innovation will be an important part of
