who also played for Blackburn Rovers in the English Premier League moved to Italy in 2015 and had 33 goals in 83 appearances for Fiorentina (Source: AP) Top News AC Milan CEO Marco Fassone hinted the club has finished its summer spending spree after signing its 11th player in this transfer window: Nikola Kalinic Milan signed Kalinic from Fiorentina on a one-year loan deal with the obligation to buy with the Croatia forward penning a four-year contract on Tuesday to June 30 2021 “With Nikola we’ve completed the team” Fassone said Milan which was bought by a Chinese-led consortium in April has spent more than 200 million euros ($234 million) in the offseason signing players such as Leonardo Bonucci Andre Silva Ricardo Rodriguez Franck Kessie Andrea Conti Hakan Calhanoglu Lucas Biglia and Mateo Musacchio “(Kalinic) is the player we wanted to complete the squad because he has experience and quality” Fassono said “We always said we wanted to have a mix of young and talented players and

mid-June and he missed training last week as he attempted to push through the move “I have to say this has been a long and difficult story more than two months” Fassone said “We’re here because he

Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsIslamophobia is nothing new to America It has been on a constant rise since the early 20th century but the recent string of terror attacks linked to the Islamic State in Paris San Bernardino and Orlando has led to a wave of Islamophobic instances According to a report published in The Guardian 55 percentof Americans have voiced an “unfavourable opinion of Islam” A new study has shown that some 50 percent of all Muslim students in the US have been bullied by their classmates reported PBS More surprisingly aYouGov poll conducted earlier this year found that 55 percent of surveyed Americans had an “unfavourable” opinion of Islam All this data clearly points to the extent of Islamophobia prevalent in the US Representational image Reuters Shockingly enough when Brits were asked this year what words came to their minds when they heard the word “Muslim” most of them responded: “terror” “terrorism” and “terrorist” It is not difficult to see then why much of the presumptive US Republican nominee Donald Trump’s rhetoric in his election campaign revolves around Islamophobia It also shows how the Americans who have long been known for their “melting pot” are now turning into anti-Muslim day-in and day-out At the same time the climate of growing Islamophobic sentiments in the US should be a note of introspection on part of Muslims as well The other day I was surprised when I read an interview in India’slargest newspaper Shireen Qudosi a Muslim political analyst based in the US is a die-hard supporter of Trump who is seen as overtly anti-Muslim Speaking toThe Times of India Qudosi not only heaped high praises for Trump but also welcomed his categorical call for a ‘blackout ban’ on Muslims in the aftermath of the Orlando massacre She put it blatantly: “Donald Trump is right in calling out radical Islamic ideology as the foundation for extremist groups like IS What happened in Orlando goes beyond immigration gun control etc" She also said "Muslims are too busy crying ‘Islamophobia’ rather than tackling Jihadism or other issues including domestic violence mental health and women’s rights These are the real issues for us as Muslims” To many Muslim apologists and even liberal Islamic scholars Qudosi herself sounds ‘Islamophobic’ But regardless of what ‘Islamophobia’ means it distresses a common Muslim like me to see more and more open-minded freethinking and well-educated Muslims complaining that the ‘crisis goes to the heart of Islam’ Perhaps it will take a great deal of time and effort to fathom the dilemma of ‘Islamophobia’ But one thing is for sure – as long as the atrocities of the violent jihadist extremism against the liberal democrats or moderates are on the rampage many more the likes of Qudosi will come out to speak An increasingly heated debate – both in national and international media – on ‘Islamophobia’ is a disturbing trend The spate of terrorist atrocities from Brussels Paris Pathankot to San Bernardino and lately in Orlando’s LGBT nightclub has fuelled the fire In the wake of this entire rampage Islamophobia has now developed into a complete and coherent field of study both in media and academia Though still in its infancy the subject has caught the imagination of various research wings and even universities across the world No wonder then that the two top educational centers at opposite ends of the US have recently launched "Islamophobia studies" – as referred to at a UC Berkeley conference In his remarks the director of UC Berkeley Islamophobia Research & Documentation Project (IRDP) Hatem Bazian has affirmed that “this is a multi-year research project that connects the academic study of Islamophobia with the public square" Historiographers have noted that the term "Islamophobia" was first coined in 1991 in the Runnymede Trust Report in the context of Muslims in the UK in particular and Europe in general It was conceptually defined as "unfounded hostility towards Muslims and therefore fear or dislike of all or most Muslims" Based on case studies the report pointed out the Islamophobic perceptions that demonise Islam as "an inherently violent political ideology" and Muslims as "xenophobic" "intolerant" "monolithic" "archaic" etc Given this renewed politicised trend in western Islamic studies or among Middle East researches John Esposito director of Georgetown University’s Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU) has depicted Islamophobia as "an empirical fact" However he critiqued the mainstream media for disseminating this "alleged bigotry beginning with the Ground Zero Mosque controversy" Esposito asserted that media coverage of Islam hit an all-time high in 2015 “The causes are fairly obvious and some of them are good reasons to be concerned: international terrorist attacks" he said While there are still those in great numbers who maintain that Islamophobia does not exist it has been reintroduced and reaffirmed by the hopeful American Republican candidate Donald Trump With an avid interest in winning the US presidential election Trump has got an opportunity to manipulate the recent Orlando mass shooting to further his political ends In lieu of combating radical Islamism in the aftermath of the massacre he is trying hard to make it a point to center-stage in the upcoming election Let’s not forget that when a similar terror attack was carried out by the IS in San Bernardino California in 2015 Trump had got emboldened enough to call for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the US” But his call was debunked at that time by an overwhelming number of the American liberal democrats as "xenophobic" "chauvinistic" and "undemocratic" However the obnoxious massacre of Orlando has resulted into a drastic increase in the Islamophobic sentiments among US citizens Thus it propelled Trump and the ilk to speak out louder It has not only prompted Trump to call for Obama’s resignation but has also catapulted his chances overnight to replace Obama in the White House So Islamophobia fuelled by Trump and his supporters has got paramount importance in the 2016 presidential election in US However the US President Obama’s refusal to even utter the words ‘radical Islamism’ or ‘radical Jihadism’ in the wake of Orlando massacre has perturbed not only the outspoken Islamophobes in the country but also a large number of the liberal democrats Earlier this controversy kicked off in January 2015 after the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris when the French PM Manuel Valls said in a speech that the country was “at war against radical Islam" Later President Obama and his administration had seemingly "bent over backwards to not ever say that” as journalist and political pundit Mara Liasson put it But this time many observers in the US and the wider world critiqued this ‘unwillingness’ or ‘inability’ to identify the radical ideological underpinnings behind the nefarious mass shooting of Orlando raising a plethora of questions For instance Ted Cruz an American attorney and politician called it "bizarre politically correct doublespeak" that was "not befitting a commander-in-chief" But Obama retorted all such allegations in his official remarks after the “Counter-IS Meeting” as the Treasury Department of Washington DC has put it “For a while now the main contribution of some of my friends on the other side of the aisle have made in the fight against IS is to criticise this administration and me for not using the phrase “radical Islam” "That’s the key they tell us – we can’t beat IS unless we call them “radical Islamists” What exactly would using this label accomplish What exactly would it change Would it make IS less committed to trying to kill Americans Would it bring in more allies Is there a military strategy that is served by this The answer is none of the above Calling a threat by a different name does not make it go away This is a political distraction” Obama said Obama claims that since he became the US President he has been clear about how extremist groups have perverted Islam to justify terrorism Of course he has repeatedly called on the Muslim governments the world over to cooperate “to reject the twisted interpretation of one of the world’s great religions” An overwhelming number of the US citizens however have developed Islamophic sentiments suggesting that Trump’s call for a blackout ban on Muslims might sound outrageous but it could appeal to the 55 percent of Americans who favour an “unfavourable opinion of Islam” Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi is a Scholar of comparative religion and classical Arabic-Islamic sciences Researcher in Culture & Communication Studies and Commentator on Muslim Affairs in Media He can be contacted at [email protected] Washington: The Pakistan leadership has indicated that there is a willingness to conduct military operations in the country’s restive northwest against terrorists including the dreaded Haqqani network if negotiations fail a top Pentagon commander has said Reuters "The (Pakistan) leadership indicated that there is a willingness to conduct operations in North Waziristan if they can’t resolve things through negotiations and the Haqqani network would clearly be a part of that" said General Lloyd Austin Commander of US Central Command who was recently in Pakistan "I was just recently in Pakistan and met with the new chief of staff of the army and the chairman of their Joint Chiefs of Staff and also secretary of defense They have indicated that they would work with us to counter the actions of the Haqqani network and so I’m encouraged by the new leadership that’s on board there" Austin told Senators during a Congressional hearing "I hope it’s true It’s long overdue" Senator Carl Levin said as Austin responded to his question "Relative to recent events has the Pakistan military indicated any willingness to you or as far as you know have they indicated to people that you have confidence in that they are willing to go after those extremists including the Haqqani network" the Senator had asked Responding to another question General Austin said he is very encouraged by the new military leadership in Pakistan "I recently met with the chief of the army the chairman of the joint chiefs and again I think they want a relationship going forward that’s more than transactional" he said "I think they want a long-term good relationship — at least from the military side of the house that’s what I get I think they’re sincere about it And so I am very encouraged by what I’m listening to and some of what I’m seeing" Austin said "Now jury’s still out — we have a long way to go — but I think our relationship is trending positive in a number of areas" he said Austin said the Pakistan Army is concerned about having a well-equipped force "on their border (in Afghanistan) that is losing control losing oversight losing leadership" "And so what the future of that could possibly bring is very very troubling for them And so you would expect that they would begin to hedge a bit more to protect themselves along their borders" he said During the Congressional hearing Senator Levin expressed concern over continued existence of madrasas which preach hatred "Those madrasas in Pakistan that produce the extremists that attacked us or helped to provide a safe haven in Pakistan — those madrasas are funded by some very well-heeled wealthy elements that have an extreme ideology" he said Austin said he agreed with the assessment of the Senator "You know this activity requires money to your point and lots of money And to better understand the activity you have to be able to follow the money So it therefore requires a whole-of-government approach" he said "I am encouraged by what I am hearing and seeing that there is an interest on the part of the Pakistani government to have better control over what’s being taught in the madrasas And I think that is a positive step going forward that’ll help to get after this" the general said PTI he said, “For this reason, Now who will be in his gang, The videos
