Abu Dhabi’s Sheikh Hazza bin Sultan Al Nahyan won one of the most prestigious and toughest equestrian events the 160km endurance race Riding a 12-year-old bay Arabian gelding Glenmorgan Al Nahyan started in 46th position When he crossed the finish line six stages later he was first It was described as a spectacular race and Al Nahyan was praised for showing a combination of ‘great effort and craftsmanship’ But the joy did not last long The following day dope control officials collected Glenmorgan’s urine sample and a month later test analysis revealed the presence of performance-enhancing drugs The horse was suspended immediately along with Al Nahyan The doctor held responsible for administering the drugs on Glenmorgan is an Indian veterinarian from Bangalore On Monday the International Equestrian Federation which runs with the acronym FEI suspended Syed Kamaal Pasha for ‘intentionally’ injecting the banned substance in the horse owned by Abu Dhabi’s royal family and ridden by Al Nahyan who is now UAE’s National Security Advisor It brought to an end a tiring drug saga which lasted five years and involved several allegations and rebuttals along with an intervention by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) While delivering its final verdict the FEI said Pasha had ‘intentionally’ injected propoxyphene a painkiller after the horse completed its pre-race training on the day prior to the event “Dr Pasha acted highly negligently and with the intention of enhancing the horse’s performance” the FEI noted in its decision which was communicated to the Equestrian Federation of India (EFI) The Indian Express has accessed the FEI report The EFI though is clueless about Pasha’s whereabouts “We tried to find him but are not able to trace him He is not doing any duty for the Indian federation Dr Pasha is an Indian but is based in the UAE and is registered by their federation” EFI assistant secretary Nafe Singh said Pasha was an assistant veterinary officer at the Hyderabad Race Club before he left for the Gulf in 1989 He wasn’t the first to take that route – at present the Emirates Equestrian Federation has roughly half a dozen Indians working as approved vets at various stables Pasha 60 spent 14 years at Royal Stables which was established by UAE’s founding father Sheikh Zayed In 2007 he moved to the Warsan Stables owned by the Abu Dhabi royal family as the head of its veterinary department and later got himself registered with the international federation “In order to officiate at FEI events veterinarians must be registered with the FEI meeting the required criteria of experience and training for the role Dr Pasha Syed Kamaal has been registered with the FEI as an official veterinarian since 2010” an FEI spokesperson said During his hearing Pasha told the FEI tribunal that he was in charge of the 514 horses including Glenmorgan at the Warsan Stables He had two other qualified veterinarians and six assistants working under him Al Nahyan nephew of Manchester City’s billionaire owner Sheikh Mansour is a keen horse rider He won the Endurance World Championship in 2005 but even that win was mired in controversy after his horse tested positive In October 2006 Arabic language Emarat Al-Youm published an article claiming horses owned by the Abu Dhabi ruling family were doped The newspaper was suspended in July 2009 by a UAE court for running the story as per an Agence France Presse report Al Nahyan escaped punishment back then but on this occasion the FEI handed him a two-year ban which was reduced to 18 months by CAS Pasha said he used the drug with an intention to help the horse relax after a strenuous training session on the eve of the race He claimed to have purchased the drug from fellow Indian T Ganesh from the Gulf Center in Bhuraimi Oman Pasha has been given a month to appeal But the Indian federation isn’t sure if he has been made aware of the verdict “We don’t even know if he is still a veterinarian or if he

the views of Shripal Sabnis Madhvi Vaidya author and president of the Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Sahitya Mahamandal organising the 89th Akhil Bharatiya Marathi Sahitya Sammelan said on Monday that the body will pass a resolution at the literary meet to condemn the tendencies that are “trying to muzzle the freedom of speech in a democracy like ours” At the same time Sabnis already embroiled in a controversy for his alleged remarks against Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised to lash out at the “growing intolerance” in the country Vaidya clarified that the mahandal does not share the views on Prime Minister expressed by Sabnis and is not party to any controversy Vaidya however maintained that the mahamandal will pass a resolution during the literary meet — starting in Pimpri on January 15— condemning the tendencies that silence democratic voices like those of Dabholkar Pansare and Kalburgi “Be it threats to Sabnis or the forces that killed the three rationalists we condemn them all They stooped very low…We do not approve of such mindsets Free speech should be countered with free speech and not with guns and bullets We are living in a democracy and therefore we ought to respect the freedom of speech of an individual” Vaidya said Asked if the controversy will affect the literary meet Vaidya said they are putting in all efforts to make it a successful event Meanwhile Sabnis who will deliver his speech at the inauguration of the literary meet on January 15 is apparently preparing to talk about ‘intolerance’ He has prepared a 100-page speech encompassing issues including the current ones like intolerance secularism communalism “Yes my speech will contain remarks on intolerance and secularism My speech will highlight whatever is happening in the country Besides this it will also touch upon issues such as farmers’ suicides caste system among others” Sabnis said Sabnis on Monday too remained defiant and said that he will not apologise for his remarks

Related News ALLEGING DISCREPANCIES in the claims of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation School Board that municipal schools saw nearly two per cent drop out rate in 2013-14 city-based NGO Sushashan Samuday said the rate was as high as 50 per cent according to information revealed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act According to the report the number of students who enrolled in Gujarati-medium municipal schools in Class I was 21690 in the year 2006-07 This number was reduced to 11459 by the time they reached Class VIII in 2013-14 showing that 10231 students dropped out during this phase Further the data shared by the NGO pertaining to other medium municipal schools also reflected a drop out number of 15172 students from academic year 2006-07 to 2013-14 The number of students enrolled in Class I were 31843 (2006-07) that reduced to 16671 in 2013-14 in Class VIII “The data sought under RTI Act has proved the false claims by the state government as well as AMC school board of almost 99 per cent enrollment and two per cent drop out rate The truth is that there is 50 per cent drop out and a similar enrollment rate in Ahmedabad municipal schools in both Gujarati as well as other medium schools” alleged Sukhdev Patel convenor of Sushashan Samuday The data finds significance ahead of the annual three-day school evaluation exercise Gunotsav scheduled to kick off across the state from Thursday Dismissing the allegations the AMC school board chairman Jagdish Bhavsar said “Students might have gone to private schools after Class VII Also after the implementation of Right to Education Act in the year 2010-11 Class VIII was brought down from secondary to primary schools This was also done in three phases This is the reason why there is such a wide gap” Bhavsar further claimed that city municipal schools have witnessed a drop-out rate of 129 per cent though he did not revealed the enrollment rate Admitting that parents preferred to send their wards to private schools in Ahmedabad he said “For Class I parents usually prefer private schools over municipal ones This is known to all” Meanwhile Patel said Sushashan Samuday members would meet Bhavsar along with AMC commissioner and city mayor on January 11 to submit a support letter instead of a memorandum “Since officials would be busy in the Gunotsav for the next three days we would be extending our support to the officials to improve municipal schools on January 11 We do not seek answers from the authorities but give assurance to provide support in improving the quality of
