Zlatan Ibrahimovic Happy To Make Toronto FC His 500th Goal Victim


Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic made history on Saturday, scoring his 500th career goal in stunning fashion, but it wasn’t enough to lift the Los Angeles Galaxy to a win over Toronto FC. The 36-year-old Ibrahimovic has always had a flair for the dramatic and he did just that in becoming the third active footballer to reach the milestone for club and country, joining Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The six-foot-five (1.95 metre) Ibrahimovic delivered a perfectly-timed roundhouse kick in the 43th minute that fooled goalkeeper Alex Bono for his 17th goal of the season.

The goal cut the deficit to 3-1 and sparked a three-goal Galaxy rally, but the defending MLS champions held on to win 5-3 in front of a crowd of 30,700 at BMO Field in Toronto.

“I am happy for Toronto because they will be remembered as my 500th victim,” said Ibrahimovic.

Ibrahimovic came into Saturday’s game tied for second in MLS scoring. He has 17 goals and eight assists in 22 appearances with the Galaxy.

Jonathan dos Santos volleyed the ball over to the Swedish star who whipped around and tapped it home.

“I was close to the goal. It reminds me of a goal I did in Ajax,” said Ibrahimovic, who has five game winners for Los Angeles. “It came from a cross and I turned around and I hit it. I was just trying to hit the goal and it went in.”

Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden with the rest coming while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Galaxy.

Jonathan Osorio’s 75th-minute go-ahead goal halted a three-goal Galaxy comeback and helped give Toronto some much needed points in their playoff push.

Jay Chapman added an insurance goal in stoppage time with a low shot to the corner.

Ibrahimovic left Manchester United to join the Galaxy at the start of this season.

“It is an incredible achievement,” said Galaxy coach Dominic Kinnear of Ibrahimovic’s goal. “The guy is a great goal scorer and it is a memorable one for him for many reasons.” 

Asked if it was memorable one for the coach, Kinnear said, “In about 10 years from now.”

Mother of Rewari gangrape victim to return the compensation cheque, says we want justice not money | रेवाड़ी गैंगरेप: छलका पीड़िता के परिवार का दर्द, कहा- हमें मुआवजा नहीं, न्याय चाहिए


रेवाड़ी: रेवाड़ी गैंगरेप केस में घटना के पांचवें दिन भी अब तक पुलिस के हाथ खाली हैं. तीन आरोपियों की पहचान हो चुकी है. आरोपियों से जुड़ा सुराग देने वाले को 1 लाख रुपये इनाम देने की घोषणा हो चुकी है. पुलिस की एक टीम राजस्थान जा चुकी है लेकिन आरोपी हाथ नहीं लग रहे. पुलिसिया कार्रवाई से परिजनों और पीड़िता के गांव वालों में काफी आक्रोश है. यही वजह है कि पीड़िता के परिवार ने मुआवजे के तौर पर सरकार की तरफ से दिए गए दो लाख रुपये का चेक वापस करने की घोषणा की है. आपको यह भी बता दें कि सभी तीन आरोपी पंकज, सेना का जवान निशु और मनीष उसी रेवाड़ी गांव के रहने वाले हैं जहां वह लड़की रहती है और वे लोग उसे और उसके परिवार को जानते थे. 

हमें पैसा नहीं न्याय चाहिए
रेवाड़ी गैंगरेप पीड़िता की मां ने मीडिया के सामने अपना दुख और गुस्सा व्यक्त करते हुए कहा, “कल कुछ अधिकारी मुझे मुआवजे का चेक देने आए थे. मैं आज इसे लौटा रही हूं क्योंकि हमें पैसा नहीं न्याय चाहिए. अब तो पांच दिन बीत चुके हैं लेकिन अभी तक कोई भी आरोपी गिरफ्तार नहीं किया गया है.”

मुझे 2 करोड़ भी नहीं चाहिए
उन्होंने आगे कहा, “मुझे इंसाफ चाहिए चेक का क्या करेंगे, उनको अरेस्ट करो और मुझे इंसाफ दो. दरिंदे हाथ नहीं आए हैं. ये पांचवां दिन है. मुझे न्याय चाहिए. ये 2 लाख है मुझे 2 करोड़ भी नहीं चाहिए. मुझे इंसाफ चाहिए. ये चेक जिसने भी दिया है मैं हाथ जोड़कर वापस करना चाह रही हूं. मेरा प्रशासन से अनुरोध है.”

सीजेएम यादव

नारनौल के सीजेएम विवेक यादव ने दिया था चेक
गौरतलब है कि शनिवार को नारनौल के सीजेएम विवेक यादव पीड़िता का हाल जानने रेवाड़ी के नागरिक अस्पताल पहुंचे थे. वहां उन्होंने पीड़िता के परिजनों से मिलकर उन्हें हरियाणा राज्य विधिक सेवा प्राधिकरण की ओर से खास मदद के तौर पर दी जाने वाली राशि के तहत 2 लाख रुपये का चेक सौंपा था. इसके बाद पत्रकारों से बातचीत के दौरान सीजेएम विवेक यादव ने कहा था कि प्राधिकरण की ओर से कानूनी सेवा के तौर पर प्रदान की जाने वाली फ्री लीगल सर्विसेज के तहत पीड़िता को यह सुविधा उपलब्ध कराई जाएगी. जहां तक पीड़िता के 164 के बयान दोबारा कराने का सवाल है तो गठित एसआईटी को भी सलाह दी जाएगी.

लड़की के पिता ने वारदात में 8 से 10 लोगों के शामिल होने की आशंका जाहिर की थी
लड़की के पिता ने कहा है कि हो सकता है आठ से 10 लोगों ने उससे बलात्कार किया हो लेकिन वह उनमें से केवल तीन लोगों की ही पहचान कर पायी. आपको बता दें कि लड़की अपने स्कूल की टॉपर रही है. पुलिस ने घटना के बारे में बताया था कि बुधवार को कनीना में बस स्टॉप से लड़की का अपहरण कर लिया गया था. अपहरण करके सुनसान स्थान पर उसे ले गया जहां नशीला पदार्थ पिलाने के बाद उसके साथ बलात्कार किया. हरियाणा के पुलिस महानिदेशक बी एस संधू ने शनिवार को बताया था कि युवती से कथित रूप बलात्कार के तीन आरोपियों में से एक राजस्थान में पदस्थ सैन्यकर्मी है और उसे गिरफ्तार करने के लिए पुलिस टीम भेजी गयी है. उन्होंने कहा था, “तीन आरोपियों में से एक सैन्यकर्मी है और पुलिस का दल उसे गिरफ्तार करने को राजस्थान गया है. मुझे विश्वास है कि उसे आज गिरफ्तार कर लिया जाएगा.”

सेना ने कहा आरोपी को सजा दिलवाने में करेंगे मदद
वहीं दूसरी ओर जयपुर में, भारतीय सेना की दक्षिण पश्चिम कमान के कमांडर लेफ्टिनेंट जनरल चेरिश मेथसन ने कहा था कि बलात्कार मामले में अगर कोई सैन्यकर्मी संलिप्त पाया जाता है तो सेना आरोपी को सजा दिलवाने में मदद करेगी. मेथसन ने कहा था, “हम अपराधियों को प्रश्रय नहीं देते. हम आरोपी की तलाश में मदद करेंगे और यह सुनिश्चित करेंगे कि अगर कोई सैनिक बलात्कार मामले में संलिप्त पाया जाता है तो वह सलाखों के पीछे हो.” राष्ट्रीय महिला आयोग (एनसीडब्ल्यू) ने घटना की निंदा की है और हरियाणा के पुलिस प्रमुख से जांच के बारे में यथाशीघ्र अवगत कराने के निर्देश दिए हैं.

High Court Puts Ban On Fatwas After Rape Victim Is Asked To Leave Village In Uttarakhand


The high court declared fatwas as unconstitutional and illegal. (Representational)

Nainital: 

Banning fatwas in the state, the Uttarakhand High Court today declared illegal a fatwa banishing the family of a rape victim from their village.

Declaring fatwas as unconstitutional and illegal, the high court directed that in Uttarakhand all the religious bodies and statutory panchayat and any group of people are banned from issuing fatwas, since it infringes upon the statutory rights, fundamental rights, dignity, status, honour and obligation of individuals.

Taking cognizance of a newspaper report that the panchayat had issued a fatwa for externment of the family of a rape victim in Laksar as a matter of PIL, the division bench of Acting Chief Justice Rajiv Sharma and Justice Sharad Kumar Sharma held that the fatwa was against the letter and spirit of the Constitution.

Instead of sympathising with the rape victim, the panchayat had the audacity to extern the family from the village, the court said.

“Fatwa is nothing but extra constitutional adventurism, not permissible under the Constitution. The constitution of Panchayats is provided under Article 243 of the Constitution of India. These are created under the Panchayati Raj Act.

“The panchayats are only required to discharge the duties and functions enshrined under the law. Issuing fatwas is not part of their statutory duties and functions. The fatwas cause immense agony and devastation to the victim, even if the same has been issued by local panchayat like ‘Khap Panchayat’.

The senior superintendent of police (SSP) in Haridwar has been directed to depute the circle officer to immediately reach the village and to ensure that the family of the victim is traced.

The SSP shall ensure round-the-clock safety of the victim and her close family members and initiate criminal proceedings against all the members of the panchayat who have issued the fatwa.

Jim VanSickle Victim Of Alleged Pennsylvania Priest Abuse Tells Story


David Poulson is one of two accused priests facing prosecution (Representational)

Jim VanSickle entered his junior year at Bradford Central Christian High School in the fall of 1979 to learn that he had a new English teacher: a young priest named David Poulson, who had recently been ordained in the Catholic Church.

It was a turbulent moment in the 16-year-old’s life. His grandmother had died, and his father had fallen ill and couldn’t work. “I was a lost kid,” he said in an interview.

He found a mentor in the teacher, only 10 years his senior. Poulson anointed him captain of the chess team, which traveled from their town in northern Pennsylvania across the border into New York for competitions. They enjoyed lively dinners after checkmate had been called.

VanSickle credits the priest with empowering him to finish high school and go to college. “He turned my life around,” VanSickle said. “He was my spiritual leader. He was my friend.”

But VanSickle, now 55, also holds Poulson responsible for ripping a hole in his life – “a hole that’s never going to be filled.” He says the priest physically and emotionally abused him, “grooming” him by exploiting the intensity of their bond. “I gave him information about me that no other person had knowledge of,” VanSickle alleged.

Poulson is one of more than 300 Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania named in a grand jury report released Tuesday that accuses church leaders of covering up rampant child sexual abuse over the course of 70 years. In the most sweeping probe by a government agency of clergy abuse in the United States, the grand jury was able to identify more than 1,000 victims while advising that there were likely thousands more.

The report is an index of frightful physical and psychological violence. It recounts how one priest allegedly abused five sisters in a single family; how another confessed to raping at least 15 boys, some as young as 7; how a victim was bound and whipped with leather straps; and how a victim died from an overdose of painkillers taken for a back injury suffered during a particularly violent attack. Most of the victims, the court said, will never be able to pursue cases against their alleged attackers, as state law gives victims of child sex abuse until they are 30 to undertake civil suits and until they are 50 to file criminal charges.

VanSickle’s story, which he recounted to The Washington Post, not only exposes the nature of the abuse that, according to the grand jury, was long cloaked by church leaders. His account also testifies to the enduring efforts of victims to make their lives whole again. Although most priests are unlikely to answer new criminal charges, VanSickle’s alleged abuser is one of the two facing prosecution. Poulson was charged earlier this year with abusing two boys between 2002 and 2010. He has yet to enter a plea.

VanSickle, who works as a tutor and life coach in Pittsburgh, is now too old to join the case. But he testified before the grand jury about his mistreatment at the hands of Poulson, and he is campaigning to encourage others to speak out and to change the state’s statute of limitations so they can seek justice.

He called the release of the grand jury report a “victory” in a “war that’s just beginning” against the Catholic hierarchy. He plans to use the list of priests named in the report to track down their alleged victims in a quest to force top cardinals to account for their responsibility. His aim is to ensure that the scandal that exploded in 2002 with revelations in Boston – and has since stretched from Australia to Guam, from Ireland to Honduras and back to the United States, recently with the resignation of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington – doesn’t fade away.

But when it comes to his alleged assailant, VanSickle avowed, he remains confused. The very fact that he still feels affectionately toward Poulson, he said, is the reason why he believes his mistreatment was so effective.

“He gave me somebody to be able to confide in, which makes the whole thing so confusing to me,” VanSickle said. “Seeing him in shackles and an orange jumpsuit, people asked me, ‘why don’t you hate him? Why don’t you want to hurt him?’ Well, I do. But at the same time, I have some really strong conflicting feelings. It’s not hard to love the man that he was before he did what he did.”

Gradually, chess team dinners in high school became one-on-one meals. Poulson would take VanSickle to the movies, he recalled, and put his hand on the student’s leg in the car, he claimed. In the rectory, the priest would try to tickle him, always with VanSickle pulling away, he said. Still, he remained devoted to his teacher. “I looked at the guy – he’s a priest. I trusted him,” he said.

Soon, he claimed, the priest introduced alcohol to their relationship, and he would take VanSickle on long rides with a six pack of beer. Tickling turned into wrestling in the rectory or in front of the altar and between the pews in church, where his teacher would jump him, VanSickle recalled, and attempt to grope him.

“He constantly wanted physical contact,” he said.

The priest instructed him to dump his girlfriend, telling the teenager that she was “bad news.” If he didn’t comply, VanSickle said, Poulson would become withdrawn, “playing a pouty, jealous role with me, and I would chase that relationship, which only made my grooming that much more powerful.”

Just before VanSickle’s high school graduation, the pair went on a trip to an Our Lady of Fatima shrine in Ohio. In a rundown hotel, VanSickle alleged, “he jumps me, and I realize that he was aroused in his clothing.” When VanSickle pushed his teacher off, Poulson went into the bathroom to change into his pajamas. When he reemerged, VanSickle claimed, “I could see his erect penis out of his clothing.”

“He attacked me at that point, and for the first time, I felt terror and fear from the fact that it almost seemed like he had eight or nine arms versus the two that I’m using to get him off,” he said.

VanSickle was able to fight him off, and from that point, he said, his memory went blank until they were in the car on the way home. “We drove for seven hours and didn’t talk except for him stopping to get a six pack and handing it to me,” he remembered. “He never apologized and we never discussed it.”

VanSickle left for a Benedictine college near Pittsburgh, while Poulson moved to a Catholic university in Erie, Pennsylvana. “I thought he maybe got the message,” VanSickle said. But the priest started making unannounced visits to his former student, offering money and, at one point, buying him a car. The last time he showed up, he brought another student with him – “his new toy,” VanSickle alleged.

“Because of the relationship that I had lost with him, I was actually jealous and angry,” he said. “But I shooed him off and made him go away. That was the last time I saw him until his preliminary hearing this year.”

It took VanSickle a year to tell his father what had happened, and 10 years to tell his mother. Otherwise, he mostly fell silent, as Poulson moved from parish to parish across Pennsylvania, eventually winding up back in Erie.

In February, VanSickle’s mother read in a church bulletin that Poulson had been accused of child sexual abuse, prompting a week of turmoil for VanSickle as he pondered, “‘What do I do?’ I decided I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t come forward.”

He ended up documenting his trauma on Facebook, which he has since used as a platform to connect with survivors of clergy abuse in all 50 states and 11 countries, he said. Speaking with other victims, he said, helped him understand why he had been living under a cloud of anxiety and anger.

“It’s the emotional trauma and the loss of that relationship that still haunts me and still controls me in some situations,” he said.

For years, he had no respite from fear that his wife of 33 years would leave him. When he entered therapy four years ago, he learned that he had “borderline personality disorder,” VanSickle said. “The only two real feelings I had were anger or fear, and both of those caused me to be violent.” Now, both he and his wife are in counseling, and bouts of rage no longer endanger his relationship with his family.

Religion, too, has helped, in spite of the painful associations. He hasn’t been an active Catholic since his abuse, but he considers himself a born-again Christian.

“I now have a personal relationship with the Lord,” he said. “Over time, my faith got stronger. The church was no longer an option, so I turned to being a very strong Christian on my own. I needed to, or I would have lost my family.”

Though his own path has straightened, VanSickle has learned that encouraging others to come forward with their stories will be an arduous course. Over the weekend, a man was so afraid of being recognized that he would only agree to meet behind a mall after hours.

“He was scared to death, like I was,” VanSickle said.
