EGYPT, MOHAMMED MORSI, AND THE NEWLY DRAFTED CONSTITUTION :A FEW THOUGHTS !

” WE ARE. . . . .THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ARE LEARNING HOW TO BE FREE ! ”
Mohammed Morsi In A Chat With TIME Magazine a day before yesterday !
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The CONSTITUENT-ASSEMBLY,dominated by the ISLAMISTS, has approved THE NEWLY WRITTEN CONSTITUTION OF EGYPT within a hectic schedule of around 16hrs. !Since Thursday Afternoon To Today’s Morning,The 85 Members Present And Voting,Have Given A Go Ahead Sign To The Final Draft Of The Egyptian Constitution Comprising A Total Of 234 Articles !

The Original Constituent Assembly Had 100 Members.There Are Around 30 Members Who Boycotted The Nature Of Its Composition And The Dominance Of The Islamists !They Are Largely Liberals and Minorities Who Withdrew From The Original Constituent Assembly Citing What They Described As ‘THE HIJACKING OF EGYPTIAN CONSTITUTION MAKING PROCESS BY THE ISLAMISTS MEMBERS largely hailing from Muslim Brotherhood.These People Expressed Their Doubts Plus Fear Regarding The Islamization Of The Constitution And The Ignorings Of The Minorities,Women,Christians . . ..et.al ! They Lamented Over The Non-Secular Character Of The Proposed Constitution !

Their Apprehensions Proved Right Today !
The Now 85 Members Assembly Has No Christian Member and Only Three Women!
The Newly Approved Constitution Has Clearly Laid Down That The Guiding Principle Behind The Egyptian Constitution Will Be ‘SHARIA’ or The ISLAMIC LAW and JURISPRUDENCE! And,if any confusion arises regarding any clauses of Sharia,Then The Most Honored Islamic Institution Of Egypt,The ‘AL-AZHAR’ Shall Be Consulted And The Rendered Opinion Thereof Shall Be Binding In Nature !

SIMPLY PUT, IT MEANS THERE ARE CURTAILMENTS OF THE POWER OF THE LEGISLATURE. . ..because the chances of the LEGISLATIVE OVERSIGHT will be zero !
The Secular,The Liberals,The Human Rights Groups And Others Have Strongly Criticised Such Constitution !

This Constitution Has Not Any Article Vesting THE LAW OF EQUALITY between MAN and WOMAN !It means that there is going to be more stricter regimentation of the fair-sex!And,That’s A Clear Cut Violation Of Human Rights,rather,THE TRUE DEMOCRATIC ETHOS PLUS ESSENCE GET DEFEATED !

Now The Constitution Goes To The Desk Of The Egyptian President,Mr. Mohammed Morsi For His Assent .And,as per reports in the media,This Takes Place Tomorrow And As Per The Expectations,Mohammed Morsi Will Sign This So Called Sacrosanct Document,The Constitution!
All This Will Be Completed By Tomorrow i.e. SATURDAY !
And,According To The Rule,Within 30 days From The Time Of President’s Signature,TheDocument Will Be Put To The REFERRENDUM or PLEBISCITE !

The President’s Spokesman as well as a few Brotherhood Members, Say That The Required Referrendum Shall Be Completed By The Mid December !

THE WHOLE AFFAIRS SEEM TO BE KIND OF A ‘RUSHING-THROUGH’ ACT AND THIS IN ITSELF CASTS DOUBTS ON THE INTENTIONS OF THE ISLAMISTS HEADED POLITICALLY BY MR.MORSI !

The Members Of The Newly Created NATIONAL SALVATION FRONT comprised of all the diverse groups that stood against the undemocratic POWER-GRAB by Mr. Morsi, Have Been Camping At The Symbol Of The Arab Spring,THE TAHRIR SQUARE, For a week and Their Resolve Appears Firmer And Unshakeable At Present!
THEY SAY THEY WILL LEAVE THE SQUARE ONLY WHEN MR. MORSI RESCIND AND REVOKE THE DECREE AND A NEW ASSEMBLY BE CONSTITUTED THAT COULD REFLECT SORT OF RAINBOW NATURE INSTEAD OF ONLY ONE HUE,THE ISLAMISTS !

Uncertainty And Chaos Are The Presiding Dieties At Present !

Also,The Supreme Judicial Body, The Constitutional Court, Is Going To Give Its Judgement Regarding The Question Of LEGITIMACY or Otherwise Of The Constituent-Assembly That Had Dubious Distinctions Of Coloring The Constitution As Per Their Whims n Fancy !
The Appellate Court Had Been Approached By Many People Including Those Liberal n Secular Members Of The Said Assembly Who Boycotted The Workings Claiming The The Thoroughly Partisan Attitudes Of The Islamists !

Expectations Are High That The Apex Court Will Disapprove Of The Legality Of The Constituent Assembly And Will Declare It Null n Void !

What Will Happen Then ? Where Shall Go The Weight Of The Decree Of Morsi – which has already been dismissed by the judiciary on account of Interference With The Power And Function Of The Judiciary !

STAKES ARE HIGH ! EGYPT’S AIR IS LADEN WITH SUSPICION AND SUSPENSE ! THERE IS BOUND TO BE SOME THRILLER PRETTY SOON !

AND, AMID ALL THESE HOTCH-POTCH, DEMOCRACY WILL BE A CASUALITY !

AUSTRALIAN CRICKETING LEGEND,RICKY PONTING,ANNOUNCES RITIREMENT FROM TEST CRICKET !

LEGENDARY CRICKETER,RICKY PONTING,ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT FROM TEST CRICKET !

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

TAKE A BOW, MR. RICKY PONTING !
The World Of Cricket In General And Australian Cricket In Particular, Will Never Be The Same Again After This PERTH -TEST Starting Friday !AT LEAST TO ME LIKE AVERAGE CRICKET FANATIC, THE RETIREMENT OF A BATSMAN-cum-FIELDER OF THE STATURE OF RICKY PONTING,MEANS THE END OF A KIND OF MADDENING JOY WHILE WATCHING CRICKET !

The Most Successful Australian Captain And One Of The Best Captains In The Cricketing World So Far, Ponting Excites Ecstasy In The Heart and Minds Of Cricket Fans Worldwide!HE REMAINS MATCHLESS IN CERTAIN RESPECTS! ALSO,VULNERABLE IN OTHERS !
A Brawl Outside A Pub In Sydney Earned Him A Bad Press And A Short time Suspension In 1999.He Was Cool As Well As Agressive In And Out Of The Field!
He Would Be Caught Pushing And Shoving The I.C.C.-CHAIRMAN,SHARAD PAWAR!The Same Year He Would Be Seen Getting The Best Player Of The Year Award From The Same Man !
RICKY PONTING a.k.a. PUNTER LED A LIFE FULL OF COMMITMENT TO THE PROFESSION THAT SUITED HIM BEST!HE PLAYED INTERNATIONAL CRICKET FOR ALMOST TWO DECADES !AND,HE KNEW WELL HOW TO DOMINATE INSIDE THE FENCE !
The Tasmanian Born Cricketer Played His First ODI INTERNATIONAL In 1995 Against South Africa And Was Out At Just One Run !He Played His Test Debut Against Sri Lanka At Perth In December Last In 1995 And Had Scored 96 !
At The Same Vennue,PERTH,He Will Be Waving A Goodbye To The Crowds, Who ,I AM SURE, Will Be Hurt To See ‘ONE OF THE GREATEST CRICKETERS OF ALL TIME’ Going Towards The Dressing Room Only Not To Come Again Inside The Ring !
Ponting Had A Brief With The International Media A Few Hours Ago Wherein He Told He Will Stop Playing Cricket After The Third Test At Perth Against The Touring South Africa!He Said He Had Not Been Upto A Level For The Last Few Months And Therefore Decided To Quit Cricket Now Considering It The Best Time To Do So !He Further Told He Had Had Very Deep And Hard Thinking On The Topic And He Arrived At This Decision On His Own And He Pointed Out That There Was No Hand In It From The Selectors!He Said He Had Given His Best To The Game Of Cricket And Now He Had Nothing New To Offer! Because He Had Not Been At Par With The Standards Of Australian Cricket Team ,So It’s High Time To Say It A Goodbye,Pointing Pointed Out !

With A Feat Of 41 Test Centuries And 30 OneDay Hundreds, Ricky Ponting Lags Behind of Only One Cricketer, Sachin Tendulkar,But, He Attains This Laurel Playing Less Matches In Both The Formats Of Cricket !
Ponting Has More Than 13 000 Runs In Test Cricket And More Than 12000 In OneDayer !A RECORD SECOND ONLY TO TENDULKAR !
And He Is The First Australian On Both Counts !
Two World Cups Under His Captaincy And 48 MATCH TEST WINS, RICKY PONTING IS THE BEST IN CONTEMPORARY WORLD CRICKET !
Playing His Hundredth Test, He Scored Two Centuries: One In Each Inning!

When The Perth Test Begins ,He Will Be Playing In His 168th Tests And His Last !
So I Pray He Smashes A Ton Or Two !
A FAREWELL TO (BATTING) ARMS !

RICKY, THOU ARE A TRUE LEGEND AND THY DEVOTION TO THE GAME OF CRICKET WILL ALWAYS BE INSPIRING TO ONE AND ALL !
