People who defamed Tablighi Jamaat now silent on Kumbh congregation: Aslam Shaikh

To curb the COVID spread, Maharashtra government is likely to impose a complete lockdown in the state amid the virus surge. Speaking on the current situation and lockdown planning, state Textiles Minister Aslam Shaikh said, "The state govt is making a fool-proof plan on what needs to be allowed and for how many days, during the lockdown. This will give sufficient time to people if they want to move somewhere or come here, and prepare them mentally, ahead of lockdown." Slamming the central government over the Tablighi Jamaat issue, Shaikh further said, "There'll be strict SOPs for upcoming festivals. Otherwise, you can see how there's a rise in COVID cases due to permission by a govt for Haridwar Kumbh. They're the same people who defamed Tablighi Jamaat and accused them of spreading the disease."

Chhattisgarh cop training 'Mallakhamba' to children of Naxal-hit area [Video]

Chhattisgarh cop training 'Mallakhamba' to children of Naxal-hit area

A Chhattisgarh Armed Force (CAF) constable is providing 'Mallakhamba' training to children in the forests of Abujmarh in Chhattisgarh's Narayanpur district which is hit by the Naxalite violence. The tribal population is deprived of basic facilities like water and electricity even today. Overcoming all obstacles, four children from the district had made it to the final round in 2020 for the selection for a 'Mallakhamba' demonstration in the Japan Olympics, which was scheduled to be held last year but was postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic. CAF constable Manoj Prasad said he learned Mallakhamba in 2016 and has been training children free of cost since then. Speaking to ANI, Manoj said, "I myself learned Mallkhamba in 2016. From 2016-2017, I started training children of Naxalite strongholds who study in Pota Cabins. All children under my tutelage are tribals who were known as 'Abujh'." The coach also informed that four children have made it to the final round for a demonstration of Mallakhamba in the Japan Olympics."These children have a lot of potentials. All the children here are future Olympiads. With this dream, I started coaching them for free," Prasad added. People in Narayanapur have not heard of Mallakhamba before. But in only two to three years of practice, the children from the region have defeated many of the country's biggest players in Mallakhamba and won many gold medals. They went to Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, Goa, and many other states to participate in Mallakhamba tournaments from 2019 to 2020.In November 2019, the children won the gold medal by defeating the senior group at the All India level. In March 2020, they won 8 gold, 3 bronze medals, and 4 girls featured in 'Best of Six' in India Under-14. "It was very difficult to defeat the Mallakhamba practitioners of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. Despite not being able to beat them for 40 years, our children had worked hard day and night along with their studies. Now they are number one in India", the coach further stated. Rajesh Korram, a class four student, who hails from Asanar village next to Jungle Orchha, said, "I have been learning Mallakhamba since 2018. I won the gold medal by defeating my senior player. I went to Mumbai for the first time on a train. Life has taken a turn for the better. I want to win a gold medal in Japan Olympics." Manu Dhruv, another Mallakhamba player, added he won 2 gold medals in Tamil Nadu. "There is not a good school in our village. These are Naxalite-affected villages. We used to climb trees and play Kabaddi. No one had heard Mallakhamba's name earlier. I started playing Mallakhamba in 2017, living in a porta cabin. Initially, I went to play Tamil Nadu and won 2 gold medals there."
