Dear Mr. President:I write to thank you for your leadership in the fight against the deadly Ebola virus ravaging West Africa. Your commitment is evidenced by your leadership in deployment of 3000 US troops, allocation of resources and your public statements denouncing Ebola fear and hysteria. Mr. President, I wish the world had acted quickly to stop Ebola. However, it’s never too late to save a life. In fact, in order to prevent more unnecessary Ebola deaths, now is the time to escalate the fight against rising Ebola fears, hysteria and embarrassing official intimidation and harassment of American health workers returning from Ebola ravaged West African countries. I urge you to take the lead by taking long overdue bold actions to buttress your words against hysteria in America. Kindly consider the following immediate actions:End the Cold War-inspired Cuban Embargo now-Continued isolation of Cuba is counterproductive when Cubans are fighting alongside Americans against Ebola.Designate Ebola ravaged Liberia, Guinea & Sierra Leone now as countries appropriate for Temporary Protected Status (TPS/DED) as winter approachesIntroduce emergency measures now to help replenish Ebola- battered health workers in Liberia, Guinea & Sierra Leone.In order to take these common sense actions, you must first take off your political shoes and step into the human shoes of an Ebola orphan, a West African front-line health worker, a Liberian stranded in America because of Ebola, a Cuban health worker and an American health worker in Ebola hot spots.“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew”- These words from Abraham Lincoln, are appropriate foundations for urgent humane and rational actions in escalating the fight against the deadly Ebola epidemic ravaging West Africa and counterproductive rising Ebola fear and hysteria sweeping across America. Mr. President, step in the shoes of an Ebola orphan and you would begin wonder why help arrived too late when what is needed to stop Ebola has always been clear from day one: more community involvement and ownership, contact tracing, more trained medical staff, more isolation units, more supplies and more beds for quarantined and sick people. You would agree that our world has more than sufficient human and material resources to have stopped Ebola in its tracks in March 2014.You would wonder why with such enormous resources at the disposal of private citizens and governments in rich and poor countries Ebola was allowed to take away your parents.Now, Mr. President, please step in the shoes of a Liberian front-line health worker and you would be perplexed at the complacency in America about the potential dangers of Ebola before Ebola hit America. It was business as usual while Ebola took its toll on West African health workers without access to basic protective gears. You would be ashamed that the world was watching as Ebola kept spreading further worldwide, creating higher risks for humans everywhere.Here is how Ebola is spreading —February 2014: Ebola killed only Guineans in a remote village.March 2014: Ebola death spread to Liberia.April 2014: Ebola began killing Sierra Leoneans.July 2014: Ebola Killed an American in Nigeria, leading to eight (8) Nigerian deaths.August 2014: American hospitals admitted two (2) American Ebola patients.September 2014: Ebola killed Spanish citizens at a hospital in Spain.October 2014: The 1st Spanish patient infected with Ebola in Europe was admitted at a hospital in Spain. Eric Duncan, a Liberian, died at an American hospital and a nurse treating Duncan contracted Ebola.Mr. President, please step into the shoes of a Cuban health worker who cannot travel freely to the United States, thanks to the 1960 Cold War-inspired embargo and the-Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917. You are only 30 years old. You just arrived and you were greeted by a red, white and blue flag and a sign “Welcome to Monrovia”, the capital city of America’s only de facto colony in the world. Your mission: to rescue little America from Ebola. You are risking your life and personal safety to do what the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama preaches: “Iit was essential the United States and other countries work to stop the Ebola outbreak at its source in Africa…”.Take another new pair of shoes and step into one worn by thousands of Liberians, Sierra Leoneans and Guineans. You are stranded in America-your flights cancelled-you are uncertain of when you’ll return home. As a result of the deadly Ebola virus spreading exponentially, you have lost loved ones whose graves you will never see and everyday grim news of rising death tolls of ordinary people. Without TPS/DED designation, the message from the White House is mixed: Ebola is deadly. Oh, Ebola epidemic is not serious enough for designation of protected status.Finally, Mr. President, step into the shoes of an American health worker. You risked your life to help fight Ebola in West Africa. Upon your return to the United States, you are subjected to official harassment and stigmatization because of your service. You wonder if you should ever consider returning to West Africa to fight Ebola.Finally, Mr. President, take off the shoes worn by millions of human beings just like you and return to the White House as the President of the United States of America. I wish you well as I remind you of the word of a songwriter: “Action speaks louder than words.” Politics aside, ending the Cuban embargo now, designating Ebola ravaged countries for Temporary Protected Status (TPS/DED) and replenishing West Africa’s battered health workers now are all the right things to do. Mr. President, Kindly consider these actions in the fight against Ebola.Sincerely Yours,Rev. Torli H. KruaTorli Krua is founder of Boston-based Universal Human Rights International (UHRI).

Pune: A Special Investigation Team (SIT), constituted to investigate the Aurangabad riots, has arrested a local Shiv Sena leader and former corporator Laxminarayan Bakhriya alias Lachhu Pahelwan for his alleged role in instigating last week’s violence which left two people dead last week.Mr. Bakhriya was picked up from Aurangabad’s Diwan Devdi area late on Wednesday night, where he was due to meet a friend.SIT sources said there was strong evidence of the Sena activist leading one of the groups that participated in the riots as well as allegedly extorting money from vendors of the minority community, which in turn exacerbated the clashes.‘Chief instigator’His role in the riots had surfaced in the immediate aftermath of the violence, with a number of political parties including the Asaduddin Owaisi-led Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the Congress pointing fingers at him for being the chief instigator of the violence and vandalism that raged through the night of May 11-12.In his tweet after the riots Mr. Owaisi had specifically called out Mr. Bakhriya and demanded an immediate probe against him. A case against the Sena leader has been registered at the City Chowk Police Station under Sections 435, 436 (mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to cause damage) and other relevant IPC sections pertaining to rioting. Known by his moniker ‘Lachhu Pahelwan’, Bakhriya was a former corporator disqualified from the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) in 2016 for allegedly attempting to murder the son of former Aurangabad deputy municipal commissioner, Ayub Khan.Other arrestsTwo corporators — one each from the Sena and AIMIM — have already been apprehended by the SIT for last week’s riots.Rajendra Janjal, leader of the house in the AMC, was arrested after a video surfaced which allegedly showed him indulging in vandalism, torching vehicles, and smashing shops. AIMIM corporator Feroz Khan was also arrested last week for allegedly instigating a mob. Both corporators been remanded to police custody till May 18.In all, 3,000 people have been booked for offences like arson, rioting and causing damage to public property.The riots, which allegedly began over illegal water connections, rapidly took on a communal colour and engulfed the old part of Aurangabad city claiming two lives — of a 17-year-old youth and a man in his 60s — and leaving more than 50 persons injured.“The police has arrested 50 persons in connection with the clashes and are interrogating them. We are also scrutinising the CCTV footage from various strife-torn points across the old part of the city and taking action based on them,” Rahul Shrirame, Deputy Commissioner of Police in Aurangabad.Opposition parties including the Congress and NCP have accused the city’s top police authorities of not doing enough to curb the violence and take preventive measures despite allegedly receiving warnings about the possibility of such clashes.

In the doubles, Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy, who In the doubles, Manu Attri and B Sumeeth Reddy, who became the first Indian mens doubles pair to qualify for the Olympics, will lead the challenge. Besides them, Akshay Dewalkar, young R Satwik Sai Raj of Andhra Pradesh and Mumbais Chirag Shetty would complete the line-up. India has been clubbed in Group B alongwith Indonesia, Thailand and Hong Kong and though it seems like a relatively easy draw, the absence of top players will hurt Indias chances to progress to the knockout stage in what is only their eighth appearance in the prestigious event. “Srikanth and Prannoys absence will be a setback, but Sameer and Sai have had some encouraging results of late and hopefully we can step up to the task and get some good wins,” Jayaram told PTI. Indian men will open their campaign against Thailand tomorrow and then square off against Hong Kong and Indonesia on Tuesday and Wednesday. “We are definitely in a tough group and getting through to the quarters is going to be an uphill task. All 3 group stage ties will be crucial. However, I believe that if we can get off to a good start by getting the better of Thailand it will be good moral boost,” said Jayaram. “Its hard to pick out any particular match that we will rely on as it is a well balanced team and every member will play a crucial role in getting the team through.” Since its inception in 1948-49, the Thomas Cup has been won by only four nations: Malaya/Malaysia, Indonesia, China and Japan while the Indian team failed to reach the knockout stage till 2006. In 2006, it was the mens team which broke the jinx by reaching the quarterfinals. In 2010, India lost to Indonesia 0-3 in the quarterfinals. In the last edition, India could not go beyond the group stage. PTI ATK PDS ATKadvertisement
