Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow of Turkmenistan in the ground-breaking ceremony of the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (Tapi) gas pipeline in Mary Turkmenistan Ansari hailed the pipeline as a major step towards regional integration It is to be completed by 2018 Will the Afghan political and security situation allow that to happen The prevailing conditions in Afghanistan were under focus at the Heart of Asia conference in Islamabad last week External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj lead the Indian delegation While attention was on the decision taken on the sidelines to resume the India-Pakistan dialogue what took place between Afghanistan and Pakistan will have a major bearing on Indian security interests and the possibilities of enhancing connectivity with and through Afghanistan Afghanistan’s government is currently stable but Chief Executive Abdullah Abdullah is marginalised His supporters are growing disillusioned with this extra-constitutional arrangement There is also no indication that the agreement for constitutional amendments to create the post of an executive PM will actually be implemented If Abdullah’s patience gives way the entire edifice will collapse This will certainly and adversely impact the coherence of the security forces Meanwhile former president Hamid Karzai is seeking to undermine the present government Afghanistan’s security situation continues to be difficult When Ghani was in Islamabad the Kandahar airport was under Taliban attack A few days later the Taliban targeted an area close to the Spanish embassy in Kabul The spread of the Taliban to northern Afghanistan is especially dangerous Their capture of Kunduz for almost a week exposed the weaknesses of the security system Afghan security forces are doing their best but the Taliban challenge will be grave as long as Pakistan does not move against them which is unlikely to happen The Islamic State (IS) is visible in Afghanistan But the extent of its inroads is unclear Many feel the IS in eastern Afghanistan is only a cover to enable Pakistan to attack Tehreek-e-Taliban elements there In any event the Taliban will remain a more potent threat Ghani spent enormous political capital wooing the Pakistan army to contain the Taliban and bring them to the negotiating table He was embittered when Pakistan revealed that Mullah Omar was dead although it had kept up the fiction that he was alive The generals also gave a long rope to Mansour chosen by them to succeed Omar to continue attacks through the spring and summer to consolidate his position Ghani poured vitriol on Pakistan but he is committed to engaging the Taliban and knows that the generals hold the keys for such a process Last week Ghani decided to again rely on the generals to deliver the Taliban for negotiations This did not go down well with all sections of the Afghan officialdom — intelligence chief Rahmatullah Nabil resigned Ghani is likely to pursue the course but will the generals deliver That will require a complete change in their outlook towards Afghanistan There is no evidence yet of such a transformation and it is most unlikely Swaraj did well to raise the issue of the transportation of Indian goods to Afghanistan via the Punjab border at the conference Ghani too asked for such access However it is almost certain that the generals will not allow such overland transit consistent with their desire to reduce Indian interaction with Afghanistan to a minimum Why have they then agreed to the Tapi pipeline Because it will when completed be a strategic lever to offset the Indian advantage on the waters flowing from India to Pakistan Indian policymakers have done well to agree to supply attack helicopters to the Afghan forces This marks a welcome departure from the old diffident policy on defence supplies It also shows that Ghani is no longer willing to keep Indian assistance out to appease the generals However Ghani is inconstant and his priority is Pakistan It will therefore be appropriate to enhance India’s engagement with all sections of the political class especially with old friends But do not expect any timely movement on the Tapi pipeline

Lanka in Colombo in one-off Test after they ended third day’s play at 252/6 Riding on Sikandar Raza’s unbeaten 97 the visitors managed to take a lead of 262 runs in second innings with 4 wickets in hand Earlier in the day Sri Lanka had a perfect start to the fist session of day’s play They began the proceedings from their overnight score of 293/7 Asela Gunaratne walked out to bat with Rangana Herath and the two added a total of 39 runs before Herath was stumped out by Chakabva off Sean Williams bowling after the left-hander danced down the track Though the wicket-keeper made a fumble in collecting the ball but he eventually managed to successfully disturnb the wood work Next came in Suranga Lakmal who too chipped in with 14 runs before getting out to captain Graeme Cremer while Gunaratane was cleaned up by Cremer Zimbabwe skipper in the process bagged a five-wicket haul Sri Lanka were bundled out for 346 trailing the visitors by 10 runs The Graeme Cremer-led side began the second innings in the most disappointing manner Herath and Perera’s spin web pushed them on to the backfoot Herath ripped apart the top order while Perera picked the crucial wicket of Craig Ervine Zimbabwe were left tottering at 23/4 but their misery continued as Cremer’s men lost half their side at a team score of 59 Later a stand between Raza and Peter Moor provided Zimbabawe with some resistance as the two compiled a total of 86 runs before Moor was removed by Jumara for 40 after Dinesh Chandimal set the field in perfect manner He asked Gunathilaka to stand a bit away from boundary ropes Chandimal’s plan did work as Moor hooked a short delivery from Kumara straight in the hands of Gunathilaka at backward square leg Zimbabwe didn’t face any further loss in wickets column as Raza

were imprisoned (Reuters) Related News It’s only February 2014 and already Britain seems to be mired in controversy about how best to commemorate the start of the First World War which has its centenary on August 4 this year Should we celebrate it as a heroic fight for British democracy against German despotism Should we commemorate the British decision to defend brave little Belgium against German aggression Or should we take our cue from war poets like Robert Graves and Wilfred Owen who wrote so movingly about what they saw as the senseless suffering of the troops on the western front from the critics like the late Alan Clark who described those men thrown heedlessly into battles in which they were slaughtered in hundreds of thousands without any tangible military result as “lions led by donkeys” While the secretary of state for education has condemned those who criticise a patriotic celebratory approach as leftwingers out to denigrate the memory of brave soldiers who sacrificed their lives to preserve British freedom others have pointed out that Alan Clark was a Tory member of parliament and that former editor of the conservative newspaper the Daily Telegraph Sir Max Hastings is among the generals’ fiercest critics Some have gone further and pointed out that “brave little Belgium” was the perpetrator of some of colonialism’s most grisly atrocities in the Congo while Britain where 40 per cent of adult males did not possess the right to vote in 1914 could hardly be described as a democracy As for liberal values these were notably absent from Britain’s rule of its own vast colonial possessions in 1914 while one of the country’s two main allies tsarist Russia was a despotism almost entirely lacking in civil freedoms or human rights What then should we be commemorating The row has recently spread to what at first sight would appear to be an entirely innocuous topic: the issue of commemorative coins to mark the anniversary The Royal Mint has issued a coin for 2 pounds sterling featuring one of the most iconic images of the war indeed of the 20th century: Field Marshal Horatio Herbert Kitchener who was appointed secretary of state for war when the conflict broke out in 1914 There he is pointing his outstretched right arm and finger just as he did on the celebrated recruiting poster uttering the words: “Your Country Needs YOU” According to the Royal Mint the design was chosen because it was the most recognisable to the British public of all images from the First World War The Royal Mint said that the image of Kitchener “has come to stand for the call to fight for King and country which is why it was judged worthy of its ‘national theme’ by an advisory committee” But it immediately ran into criticism Dai Lloyd a Welsh nationalist politician said: “It is hard to imagine a more offensive and jingoistic message to send to the rest of the world than this unfortunate image” Others pointed out that as commander of the British army in the Boer War at the turn of the century Kitchener had been responsible for the atrocities of the concentration camps in which Afrikaners and their families were imprisoned in conditions so terrible that thousands died A petition to withdraw the coin was launched: it has so far attracted 27000 signatures “The coin” said the organisers “does nothing to commemorate the millions of people who died in the war or the millions more who were wounded traumatised displaced impoverished imprisoned or bereaved” The shadow culture minister Helen Goodman speaking in the House of Commons for the Labour Party said that if the remarks of the secretary of state for education and the decision to put Kitchener on the 2 pound coin were anything to go by the government seemed to be embarking on an unnecessarily jingoistic approach Instead campaigners want the coin to be withdrawn and a new one issued featuring the British nurse Edith Cavell who was executed by a German firing squad during the war for helping wounded British soldiers being treated in her hospital to escape back to the lines Just as important as her work in this respect however was the fact that she also treated wounded German soldiers in the hospital “Patriotism” she famously said “is not enough” For many of the critics this is a more accurate representation than the militaristic and unthinking image of a soldier calling upon men to fight “for King and country” The coin is unlikely to be withdrawn Meanwhile largely ignoring the pleas of its education secretary for a patriotic commemoration Culture Secretary Maria Miller has announced that funds will be made available for a wide range of events many of them put on by local initiatives The row continues The writer is Regius professor of history and
