such deviations In factthat makes his adaptation of Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay’s Adim Ripu a much braver attempt By shifting the time period of the film by just a few decades from the original textDutt creates a meticulousruffle-free period drama He takes great care to recreate Kolkata of the 1960s (film postersjatra banners and a truncated charak mela sequence)but he also ensures that these little details don’t distract you from the main plot Dutt’s Byomkesh Bakshi ( a very effective Abir Chatterjee)much in the mould of the Doordarshan (Basu Chatterjee-directed) Byomkesh Bakshiis a quietaffable bhodrolok who charms his clients with a cup of tea and a plateful of shingara He hardly ever raises his voice (but raises his eyebrows every few minutes) and in true Bengali-fashion does much of the

pontifically so In Adim Ripu the obligatory climax a scene common to every whodunnit where the detective assembles everyone involvedand explains how the crime was committed and who committed it is

many choose to leave the country of their birth to escape what they say is growing intolerance and discrimination (Source: AP) Related News Afghanistan’s once-thriving Sikh community is dwindling fast as many choose to leave the country of their birth to escape what they say is growing intolerance and discrimination Once boasting as many as 100000 members in the 1990s Afghanistan’s Sikh population according to community leaders has fallen to an estimated 2500 The reason for the exodus: endemic societal discrimination in the majority Muslim country and an inability to reclaim Sikh homes businesses and houses of worship that were illegally seized years ago “I’m worried that if things don’t change and we are no longer able to stay then the only people left will be those who cannot afford to leave” said 23-year-old pharmacist Charn Singh His family traces its roots back more than 400 years to Gardez the capital of Paktya province bordering Pakistan where his ancestors were wealthy traders and landowners and his grandfather was an oral historian and keeper of Sikh legends Share This Article Related Article These days the family has little of its former wealth having lost much of its land to what Afghan Hindu lawmaker Anarklai Kaur Honaryar called a series of illegal land grabs Hindus in Afghanistan have faced similar persecution Sikhism and Hinduism are distinct religions but many Afghans view both communities as non-Muslim foreigners “In all provinces they (Sikh and Hindus) owned lands but unfortunately their lands were taken over by powerful individuals during the fighting” said Honaryar who is also a human rights activist In this Sunday May 31 2015 photo “In all provinces they (Sikh and Hindus) owned lands but unfortunately their lands were taken

intolerance and discrimination (Photo: AP) The persecution of Afghan Sikhs has remained a constant through decades of upheaval in this war-torn country After the Russians ended their occupation in February 1989 and Afghanistan collapsed into civil war various mujahedeen splinter groups fought each other for territory and power In the ensuing chaos many Sikh houses of worship known as gurdwaras were destroyed — along with many Hindu temples A United Nations report in 2005 said that most of Kabul’s eight Sikh and four Hindu temples had been destroyed in the fighting In the chaos of the civil war Afghans’ tolerance toward ethnic and religious minorities hardened That intolerance became official policy when the Islamic extremist Taliban took over in 1996 Under the Taliban Sikhs and Hindus were pressured to convert to Islam and forced to pay a special tax and publicly identify themselves with yellow patches on their clothing Muslims were encouraged to avoid doing business with them During this period many Sikhs and Hindus were forced to sell their land or had it openly seized by warlords Those who fled the country often found that their properties had been seized and false ownership papers drawn up to legitimize the theft The overthrow of the Taliban by the 2001 US-led invasion didn’t improve conditions as much as some community members expected Many who had fled the country found that religious intolerance had become ingrained in their war-weary homeland and that they were still second-class citizens In this Sunday May 31 2015 photo Afghan Sikhs eat in a langar a free community kitchen at a Gurdwara the place of worship for Sikhs in Kabul Afghanistan (Photo: AP) The ascension of post-Taliban President Hamid Karzai in 2002 largely put an end to the illegal land seizures But getting the land back has proven difficult Some have tried to reclaim their lost properties in Afghanistan’s work-in-progress judicial system But many other Sikhs and Hindus have chosen not to pursue what can be a laborious expensive and ultimately futile attempt to legally regain their lost and often still-occupied properties Abdul Qadir Arzu a spokesman for the Kabul municipality said these kinds of land-grabs were a common problem in Afghanistan and that the government is working to address the concerns of the Sikh community “It’s a huge problematic issue for many Afghans including Afghan Sikhs” Arzu said “Sikhs have been vulnerable to war and conflict like other Afghans” Sikh community figures and analysts believe that intolerance for non-Muslims has grown as constant violence and upheaval has made Afghans wary of those they perceive as outsiders — and both Sikhs and Hindus are widely regarded as foreigners more readily identified as Indians and Pakistanis An attempt in 2013 by Karzai to reserve parliamentary seats for Sikhs and Hindus was rejected by lawmakers because political analyst Ahmad Saeedi said “other minorities might make demands for similar privileges” The US Commission on International Religious Freedom noted in a 2009 report that while there is no longer any official discrimination against Hindus and Sikhs in Afghanistan “They are effectively barred from most government jobs and face societal hostility and harassment” At times these tensions have boiled over into violent attacks — especially at funerals as the Sikh and Hindu tradition of cremation is frowned upon by Muslims in Afghanistan Even today funeral processions are regularly jeered and stoned Despite constitutional protections for religious and ethnic minorities neither the government nor judicial authorities have done much to address the situation Honaryar said “Social discrimination and second-class status within Afghan society is the only reason for leaving Afghanistan” she said adding that complaints to police about abusive treatment were largely ignored For Afghan Sikhs the constant discrimination is particularly bitter because many proclaim themselves to be proud Afghans Some like Arindar Singh risked their lives to fight the Soviets in the 1980s “Our Muslim brothers know our history they can see our Afghan passports and national ID cards and our records in governmental offices But when we go to them they still tell us ‘You are not Afghan you are an Indian go back to your country’” he said A religious scholar born in Gardez Singh teaches religious studies and Punjabi to Sikh children in Kabul “I want to say that Afghanistan is our country and this is the place of my birth” he said “For the past three decades of war I never left Afghanistan I was born here and will die here” For all the latest World News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | United Nations | Published: November 4 2016 2:26 pm United Nations (File Photo) Top News Russia on Thursday criticized UN chief Ban Ki-moon’s decision to fire a Kenyan peacekeeping commander in South Sudan as premature saying the mission there was now “in ruins” after Kenya vowed to withdraw all its troops in response to the move Watch What Else Is Making News Ban dismissed Lieutenant General Johnson Mogoa Kimani Ondieki after a UN inquiry into the response by peacekeepers to several days of violence in the capital Juba in July found a lack of leadership and that UN troops failed to protect civilians Kenya said it would withdraw some 1000 troops deployed with the 13000-strong peacekeeping mission in South Sudan where UN peacekeepers have been deployed since 2011 when it gained independence from Sudan In an unusual move Russia a UN Security Council veto power and Kenya publicly criticized Ban’s response to the report “For us the decision was premature” Russia’s Deputy UN Ambassador Petr Illichev said “We don’t have a special representative she’s leaving we don’t have a force commander … The whole structure is in ruins” Ondieki became the force commander in June just three weeks before the outbreak of heavy fighting between South Sudan President Salva Kiir’s troops and soldiers loyal to his rival Riek Machar UN South Sudan envoy Ellen Loj is due to step down at the end of November The UN inquiry released on Tuesday found peacekeepers did not operate under a unified command and received multiple and sometimes conflicting orders It said there was a “chaotic and ineffective” UN response Kenya UN Ambassador Macharia Kamau said his country had appealed to Ban not to single out any one individual for “what we will continually insist is a systemic failure in the United Nations system” “The secretary-general in his lame-duck season seems to have found the courage that has alluded him throughout his tenure by choosing to ignore Kenya’s plea” Kamau told a news conference at the United Nations Ban steps down at the end of 2016 after serving two five-year terms The United States proposed on Thursday that the Security Council welcome the inquiry’s report but diplomats said that China backed by Russia blocked the move Such statements have to be agreed by consensus The UN inquiry had found that on two occasions Chinese peacekeepers abandoned their positions during the violence In Beijing on Friday China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the report contained “groundless criticism” of relevant UN peacekeepers in South Sudan and expressed “regret” over its negative impact on the UN peacekeeping mission UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric defended the UN inquiry on Thursday which he said was focused on UN decisions made during the several days of violence Dozens of civilians and two Chinese peacekeepers were killed during the fighting The US ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power acknowledged the difficult and dangerous circumstances faced by peacekeepers in South Sudan but said the failure to act by UN troops “revealed systemic shortcomings in UNMISS” “It is clear from the UN’s investigation that when civilians were in desperate need of help their pleas were ignored and the human costs were horrific” Power said in a statement Political rivalry in South Sudan between Kiir an ethnic Dinka and his former deputy Machar a Nuer led to civil war in 2013 that has often
