case of honour killing (Source: Facebook) Top News Most of us who googled Qandeel Baloch’s name after learning of her gruesome honour killing have been wondering how this outspoken young woman was allowed to live long enough to scandalise titillate and create murderous rage in this subcontinent Born Fauzia Azeem we learn she was one of 12 siblings from a traditional middle-class family in a small town in Pakistan Punjab She had walked out of an abusive marriage had a child and at the time of her death according to her father was supporting her entire family including the brother who throttled her Her father and brother could not have been unaware that her income which sustained them came from Qandeel marketing herself as a bold sex icon (with a following of a million on Facebook) and as a frequently-invited guest for sharply subversive discussions on TV and other social groupings In the male-dominated society of Pakistan where (according to 2014 data released by the NGO Aurat Fund) six women are abducted four are murdered another four are raped and three commit suicide each day one wonders how could a semi-clad young woman who posted videos on YouTube offered herself to cricket stars threatened politicians on both sides of Wagah and uploaded a provocative selfie with a mufti have lived to be 26 According to data with the Honour Based Violence Awareness Network some 5000 such murders take place worldwide Of these 1000 each occur in India and Pakistan and the 12 in the UK takes place mostly among Indian and Pakistani-origin families As per UN figures one in five of the honour killings takes place in India but non-governmental organisations put the real tally at three times the reported figure For humans sexuality can be a way of bonding of giving and receiving pleasure communicating emotion and discovering sameness But in countries like ours the question that is never asked is the one that would define sexuality from a truly feminine perspective: Who does what to whom and gets away with it The answer: It is always the men who lay down the rules In our time social media has emerged as the most popular arena where sexuality is socially constructed and exercised; as a subdivision of pornographic sites it helps define women that men would desperately want to see and possess Perhaps Qandeel is a somewhat extreme example of a half-baked understanding of clever jumlas being increasingly used to provoke young girls into acting out male fantasies under the guise of “doing your own thing” and “my body is mine to do what I wish to do with it” Like fish living in water all women in India Pakistan or even in the West must live surrounded by such visuals today where women are being sexually objectified and defined to satisfy the male gaze Many women cope with this situation by receding into outright denial or fear But some like poor Qandeel decide to meet the male standards and consider themselves successful by the degree to which they succeed in arousing male interest Their strategy seems to be that by doing that before actually being told to do so a woman may acquire a certain self respect and pride as a free agent and become a subversive media sensation “It was I that chose to do it so there” they will say repeatedly; as though any woman on this subcontinent can have some meaningfully determining part in presenting her sex life publicly on a platform and attract eyeballs without turning into some kind of a universal dirty joke There are also more questions arising out of the so-called laws against violence mostly sexual violence within homes that is being perpetrated against women all over the subcontinent Who crafts amends interprets and adjudicates over these family laws Don’t family and kinship rules and sexual mores from Haryana (where a Dalit girl is raped by the same group of men twice) to Gaya (where a woman is stripped and paraded naked on charges of promiscuity) to Pakistan Punjab (where Qandeel was murdered ) or Sindh (where hundreds of raped women are jailed because their authority as a witness even to their own humiliation is half that of the perpetrator’s) eventually go on to guarantee reproductive ownership sexual access and control to men as a group No society says that a sister must feed the entire family and still play moral games by tribal laws But that is not necessary since most sisters would die rather than see their family starve No law urges brothers to go and kill their sisters for bringing dishonour to the family but if the father says he forgives the perpetrator charges are dropped A few weeks before she was killed Qandeel had asked the government for protection; she was of course denied it Even the proposed Bill for protecting women against violence withholding family pardon that literally lets brothers and uncles of young women get away with murder and asking men “to only beat their wives lightly” is hanging fire in the state to which Qandeel belonged The government-funded Council of Islamic Ideology has stoutly blocked it saying that since according to the Islamic laws women must not speak to men other than those to whom they are related by blood even their answering the phone must be forbidden Members of khaps caste panchayats and college principals in India who have ruled that girls must not wear trousers carry mobiles or step out of the house without a male chaperone should be happy with Qandeel’s brother’s reply He killed his sister he said because “girls are born to stay at home” The writer is former chairperson Prasar

six sixes came off only 61 balls as Jharkhand surpassed the target of 176 in only 302 overs (Express Photo by Bhupendra Rana) Top News Sometimes you need a bit of bravado to create history Sunny Gupta and Ishank Jaggi Jharkhand’s senior players were about to take the decision in the dressing room that would turn the game on its head and bring them closer to history Jharkhand were set 178 to win they had never reached the semi-finals before when the senior pros had a brain wave They wanted to send the 19-year old Ishan Kishan to open the innings Gamble yes but also it had logic Kishan though was reluctant to open and wanted to go in at his usual no 5 slot Jaggi was busy trying to convince him: “Lagega toh match jaldi khatam hoga he” (If you connect match would get over soon) Kishan wasn’t sure but when the big daddy of the team Saurabh Tiwary joined in the chorus he couldn’t refuse any longer Tiwary was the captain and he too felt that Kishan should be unleashed straight up at the top “If he connects and remains unbeaten till the first 15 overs he can finish off the game” Tiwary felt And so Kishan padded up and went in to create history at the Motibaugh ground He hit cleanly remained aggressive throughout and slammed some powerful shots to ensure Jharkhand who were reduced to a 10-man team mind you for the last couple of days finished off the game with five wickets in hand Kishan didn’t take too long to set the tone and announce his intent His first big shot was a flick for a six over square-leg off Harshal Patel the wrecker-in-chief in the first innings He then steered a boundary to third man and the twin-strikes gave the teenager the required confidence-booster Two years ago Kishan had failed during his stint as India U-19 captain (73 runs in six innings as an opener) and it was something that had hurt the boy A stunning performance to pave way for Jharkhand’s maiden entry to Ranji semi-finals would have made up for it Psychological leap The Bangladesh sojourn for U-19 world cup was dismal batting-wise but it proved to be a big leap mentally as Kishan got an opportunity to interact with Rahul Dravid the Under-19 coach At the end of the tournament Dravid had a straight talk with the teenager He was asked whether he would be happy just playing the Indian Premier League or wants to aim bigger and think about playing for India Dravid also had technical advice to go along with his mental fine-tuning The youngster was told to improve his footwork and told how to commit entirely forward or back to use the depth of the crease better It all came together this season as even before this quarter-final Kishan has been playing a few violent knocks More importantly they haven’t been the hit-and-giggle variety but substantial in duration and output It was again visible on Monday He crashed Amit Mishra for two boundaries and even charged the medium pacer Mohit Sharma for a six and a four in the 11th over The plunder continued next over when he looted Mishra for two fours When Haryana brought in the other leggie Yuzvendra Chahal Kishan welcomed him with a huge six over extra cover The next delivery disappeared over long-off and you could sense the damage was done Haryana it seemed too felt the same way The teenager had triumphed He kept the sixes and fours coming – Harshal Patel bleeded couple of fours Rajat Palliwal was bashed for a six The Patna boy rushed out to Patel and tonked him for a six over long-on and he fell trying to repeat the shot but was caught by Mohit at mid-on Kishan’s 86 had nine fours and six sixes and by the time he fell Jharkhand were 139 for 2 needing just 39 more runs Chahal removed Jaggi and Virat Singh and Sumit Kumar the wicketkeeper-batsman fell with just four runs left but Jharkhand won the game with five wickets and a day to spare First session blues Earlier Haryana resumed their day on 146 for 2 were all out on 262 Six wickets fell in first session From been 173 for 7 Haryana managed to add a respectable total of 262 with Sanjay Pahal (29) and Harshal Patel (25) playing cameos innings Last year too they had qualified for the quarter-finals but choked in front of Mumbai This year a teenager with skill and attitude and seniors with desire have taken them to the final four Even as Kishan stole everyone’s hearts on the fourth day the efforts of Shabaz Nadeem shouldn’t be forgotten for it was he who put Jharkhand in the path of history in the first place He grabbed four wickets in the second innings and his 11 in the game was what set Jharkhand on the path to victory It was just his third 10-wicket haul in First-Class cricket Brief Scores: Haryana 258 and 242 (Chaitanya Bishnoi 52 Shivam Chauhan 43 Shahbaz Nadeem 4/78 Samar Quadri 3/75) lost to Jharkhand 345 and 178/5 (Ishan

Chennai Open having triumphed six times PTI Top News Doubles legend Leander Paes was mighty impressed with the way Divij Sharan and Purav Raja played to knock him out of Chennai Open considering his impressive past records here Delhi’s left-hander Sharan and Mumbai’s Raja subdued Paes and Andre Sa in 67 minutes to storm into the quarterfinals of the Chennai Open last night Paes 43 is the most successful player at the Chennai Open having triumphed six times the latest being in 2012 with Janko Tipsarevic “Today was not a great start but we got to give credit to the other boys They played very well specially I thought Divij played so well his first serve percentage was very big” Paes said when asked to reflect on the defeat in the season-opener Paes said Sharan and Raja have improved from when he beat them on the Tour “I have played Divij and Purav in St Petersburg beat them in straight sets Today they had a clear-cut game plan which was very easy to see after 10 minutes into the match Divij came out with a big second serve down a breakpoint in the second set “They served for the first set we had them in trouble but they came out of that they held the game We got Purav under some pressure… it’s not easy to beat Leander on Chennai courts Managed to break him but two breaks down (in second set) was too much” Paes said Sharan and Raja had a very successful 2016 winning the Los Cabos ATP trophy four Challenger titles and broke into the top-70 in doubles They also have Bogota title (2013) in their kitty Asked if he sees them developing into a formidable pairing on the Tour Paes said “They have good chances to be successful if they stick together since their style is such that it will be difficult to adapt to their game if they had to play with different partners “The way they play is very unique they make a very good combination There are two ways I look at that When you see three singles players and a doubles player then only one guy goes in and hence you are generally looking at the one who has already played a lot of Davis Cup and has the experience of winning “The other is they are a set team If you look at them as individual then I wonder the kind of format they play if they play someone else how much they can adapt to that The way they played ‘eye formation’ every single point the way they played was very specific style of playing That not every body can adjust to They compliment each other very well So can they do well on the Tour sure they can” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Sonup
