India passengers Over the years he has planned and presided over some of the most audacious attacks on Indian soil including one on the Parliament which brought the two neighbouring nations to the brink of war Born in Bahawalpur Punjab on 10 July 1968 as one of 10 siblings (some sources list his DoB as August 7 1968 as the third of 11 children) Azhar whose father Allah Bakhsh Shabbir was the headmaster at a government-run school studied at the Jamia Uloom ul Islamia Banuri Town in Karachi His family ran a dairy and poultry farm In his book The Virtues of Jihad Azhar reveals: "One of my father’s friends Mufti Sayeed was a teacher at the Jamia Islamia at the Binori Mosque in Karachi He prevailed upon my father to admit me in the Jamia"Even as he got his degree and an eventual teaching assignment it was clear that Azhar’s interest lay elsewhere Binori madarsa like many of its ilk was a veritable ground for recruits and leaders of the Harkat-ul-Ansar (aka Harkat-ul-mujahideen) frequented the campus roping in impressionable minds "A leader of Harkat-ul-Ansar Commander Akhtar had come to invite the principal of the madarsa to visit Afghanistan The principal Mufti Ahmadur Rahman suggested that I should also participate in the training course of jihad" Azhar recalled A great motivator but physically unfit Azhar learned to use Kalashnikov and Zokai machine guns in Afghanistan but failed the arduous 40-day military training That and his subsequent injury in the Soviet-Afghan war led to his appointment as the head of Harkat’s department of motivation He also became the editor of Harkat’s monthly magazine which was mostly distributed for free at mosques in Karachi and became an important tool for recruitment Azhar who was also a great orator later became the general secretary of Harkat and as part of a mission to spread pan-Islamism — which included ideological motivation recruitment and fund-raising — Azhar visited Lusaka Zambia Abu Dhabi Saudi Arabia Mongolia and United Kingdom and even Albania By 1993 25-year-old Azhar rose to the top of Harkat hierarchy with a power to even revamp the entire organizational structure Fortuitous arrest It

factions Harkat-e-Jihadi Islami and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen In January 1994 he flew into Delhi from Dhaka as a Gujarat-born Portuguese national Wali Adam Issa and eventually left for Deoband with two Harkat operatives from Kashmir He flew to Srinagar and met the Harkat’s top commanders in the Lalbazaar area of downtown Srinagar On 10 February a meeting of 19 leaders of the Harkat the HuJI and the JuM was called at a village near the Anantnag forest Azhar’s ideological and operational address to the group began late that evening It was while returning from that meeting that Azhar was arrested

terrorists near Anantnag Sajjad Khan the Harkat’s supreme commander in the Kashmir Valley had just turned their car on to the National Highway to Srinagar when the engine spluttered to a halt It turned out that the car had run out of petrol Azhar Khan and their bodyguard Farooq Ahmed had no choice but to take an autorickshaw back to the nearest petrol pump at Khanabal Five minutes down the road the three ran into a BSF patrol Ahmed had nowhere to hide his gun and opened fire He escaped but both Azhar and Khan had no time to run When the BSF personnel searched Azhar’s briefcase they found $1200 a fake Portuguese passport and identity card and an Indian Airlines ticket to New Delhi booked for 13 February Forced release The Harkat made several unsuccessful attempts to get Azhar and Afghani out of jail before the audacious IC 814 Air India hijack in December 1999 In one of the most dramatic hostage crisis Masood Azhar was released by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led NDA government in

unerring similarities to each one of India’s overseas ODI outings over the last two months Firstly skipper Dhoni has opted to field on five out of five occasions he’s won the toss in South Africa and now in New Zealand Incidentally Dhoni has walked out to bat in all those five unsuccessful run-chases with the required run-rate soaring over seven-an-over So demanding have been the scenarios that even ODI cricket’s foremost finisher has fallen short The one that has mainly been responsible for India repeatedly falling behind the eight ball though has been their middle-order’s inability to rotate the strike in between the 10th and 35th overs separating the two powerplays It is an issue that could probably on paper be dismissed as a little prick but one that has caused them a lot of pain Take the tied ODI in Eden Park for example While India managed only 47 singles in the middle period the Kiwis had picked up 70 singles during the same time The lack of singles also meant that the visitors faced significantly more dot-balls than New Zealand adding to the pressure Even earlier in the series India have faced close to 30 more dot deliveries on average as compared to the Kiwis in the crucial middle overs South African skipper AB de Villiers in fact had pointed out last month that India’s penchant to score a lot of boundaries didn’t worry him as his bowlers could always make up for it by denying them singles and bowling more blank balls In the last 12 months Indian batsmen have hit more fours than any other country with 796 hits to the fence with Australia second-best at 668 More significantly their boundary percentage of the total runs scored is over 50 per cent They don’t feature anywhere near the top when it comes to singles taken In subcontinent conditions India’s inability to rotate the strike might not count as a weakness But it can get exploited in foreign climes where the bowlers have a say and break-free shots are leaden with more risks Over the last month or so the likes of Suresh Raina Yuvraj Singh and Ajinkya Rahane have been guilty of getting the innings stuck when not scoring boundaries Coupled with their problem against the short ball the batsmen tend to remain trapped at one end With the World Cup just a year away it’s an issue that demands immediate attention or India can only hope that Dhoni walks out to bat donning his cape every single
