NEWSMAKERS: 16-30 September 2001

Muhammad Hamid Ansari, vice chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, has been nominated member of the jury of 'Jawaharlal Nehru Award of International Understanding' by President KR Narayanan. The Award is given every year to a person for promoting international understanding, goodwill and international friendly relations.

Suhaib Ilyasi, producer of 'India's Most Wanted ' has once again made his comeback with 'Fugitive: The Most Wanted.' The weekly programme is telecast every Monday at 10 pm on Jain TV. 'The theme of the new show remains the same. It is not merely a programme, but a mission against crime and corruption,' says Ilyasi.
Ilyasi rose up to instant popularity following the telecast of 'India's Most Wanted on Zee TV in 1998. The programme had created havoc among criminals. Some 45 criminals were arrested or shot dead after the release of the programme. However, after 65th episode on Zee TV and later 28 episodes on Doordarshan the show was discontinued after Ilyasi was arrested under charges of dowry-related harassment and had to spend two months in Tihar Jail.

Khalid Najib Suhrawardy has been appointed minister of state for internal affairs in Farooq Abdullah's ministry in J&K. Suhrawardy took oath along with other two ministers. He belongs to Doda, where after recent violent incidents conditions have ameliorated. He will work under the Chief Minister who holds the ministry of internal affairs also.
According to a government notification Mushtaq Ahmad Shah Bukhari was given the portfolio of Social Welfare, while Muhammad Husain was made minister of state for revenue. The three ministers were sworn in on 14 August.

Asif Nazir, the reigning national go-kart champion regards Connaught Place as a special place. It was on a track in Connaught Place (CP) that the Mumbai-based Asif Nazir had his first fifteen minutes of fame. It was the throbbing audience at the CP Shopping Festival on Christmas Eve last year that made Nazir claim pole position. Now, a brief trip to the city’s chaotic CP traffic makes Nazir declare, ‘I never want to drive in Delhi again.’
Nazir, one of the most promising faces on the Indian racing track, isn’t used to waiting for traffic lights to turn green. ‘I love the smell of burnt rubber on the tarmac. The kick that you get from being faster than anybody else is huge,’ says the champ who learnt his twists and turns on Mumbai’s go-karting centers in Powai, Worli, Chembur and Goregaon.
After schooling from Dunne’s and a graduation in commerce from HR College, Churchgate, Mumbai, Nazir began helping his father in the rugs business. But all along his conventional, almost sleepy existence, there was one factor that kept firing Nazir’s imagination – the need for speed. ‘When I began racing on go-karting tracks in Mumbai, I realized I was the fastest in every race. I then went to race at Sriperambadur. But my first pole position was in Delhi. It was an amazing race. Usually, except for a few places down south, there were thousands of visitors to the shopping festival who were noisily cheering every move made by the competitors’ he recalls with a wide grin.
And the speed merchants who inspired Nazir are: Colombian Juan Pablo, Michael Schumacher, but the late Brazilian Ayrton Senna remains his favorite. ‘I loved Senna’s spirit and he will always remain my idol, says Nazir.

Dr Rizwan Ahmad, secretary of Bihar Urdu Academy, a distinguished Urdu journalist and litterateur, has claimed in his research papers which he submitted for his Ph D, under the title of ‘Role of Urdu Journalists in India’s Freedom Movement’ that the unique sacrifices which Urdu journalists of India have made in India’s freedom struggle cannot be compared with the journalism of any other language. This thesis is the gist of his research paper on Urdu journalism on which Bhagalpur University conferred upon him Ph D degree.
Rizwan Ahmad, who is the editor of Azimabad Express and author of famous short story collection, Masdood Rahon Ke Musafir, said that the British government had banned the dailies like Jam-e-Jahan Numa published from Calcutta and Delhi Urdu Akhbar. The editor of the latter had to pay the price of his life for being involved in freedom movement.
He has written that the last Mughal emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar had to pay for keeping the press free. He had permitted in his paper Sirajul Akhbar writings which were objectionable to the Britishers. He further writes that the Urdu paper Swaraj published from Allahabad was banned and its editor and assistant editor were imprisoned for 10 years.
Rizwan Ahmad is an optimistic Urdu journalist. He got recognition from his book Meri Awaz Suno (Listen to my words) based on his editorials.
