(PCB) on Friday gave approval for adopting legal recourse against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for not honouring the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two boards in 2014 to play bilateral series PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan and Najam Sethi who heads the executive committee told the media in Karachi after a meeting of the BOG that the members had given approval for using legal channels to seek compensation for the financial losses suffered by the PCB due to India not honouring the MoU “We will start legal consultations soon over the matter as the BOG has today given approval The fact is that the BCCI signed a MOU document with us to play six bilateral series between 2015 and 2022” Khan recalled “The International Cricket Council (ICC) is witness to this MOU We will now be consulting our legal team to take up the matter of India not playing us under the MOU with the BCCI and at the ICC level” Khan said Sethi made it clear that the PCB had until now been patient with the Indian board despite them disregarding the MOU “But now our patience has also run out because we were supposed to host two home series under the MOU from which we could have earned millions of estimated revenues But since they are not honouring the MOU we have suffered losses” Sethi who signed the MOU when he was chairman of the board said India has not played a bilateral series with Pakistan since 2007 when Pakistan toured India for a full Test series The PCB claims that India owes it two home series which translates into millions of dollars for Pakistan cricket In January the PCB even agreed to host a short one-day series in Sri Lanka as part of the MOU but the BCCI backed out by stating they had not clearance from their government for the series Khan said when the BCCI was so reliant on their government for playing Pakistan they should have thought about it before signing the MOU “We will now take up this matter with the ICC because the Indian board claims it has been stopped by its government from playing us We have the MOU to back us and we want to see the instructions from their government in writing” he added He said it was unfortunate that the BCCI had not honoured a written agreement Khan also announced that the board had decided to leave the decision of retirements to senior players Misbah-ul-Haq Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi “We will not take any decision they will have to decide themselves when they feel it is the right time to retire All three have given Yeoman service to Pakistan cricket and we respect this and want to ensure they are

headlines in China these daysone easily gets the impression thatfor all its glittering economic successthe worlds most populous country is experiencing a collapse of morality These are but a few examples In Guangdong province last montha two-year-old girl was run over by two vans More than a dozen people passed by but did nothing to help the toddlerwho died within days This event would most certainly have passed unnoticed had it not been captured on video and posted online The official Chinese press finally confirmed last month thatindeedmany restaurants in China had been using gutter oil recycled cooking oil collected in trash bins in food preparations Such oil could cause cancer and other health problems But the practice is said to be widespread In June this yeara 20-year-old woman reportedly employed by the Chinese Red Cross was shownin a series of pictures posted onlineflaunting Gucci handbagswearing expensive designer clothesand driving a Maseratian Italian-made luxury car All of these incidents sparked public outrage over callousnessdishonesty and corruption They also raised profound questions about the issue of morality in a society experiencing unprecedented and disorienting socio-economic changes While it is tempting for many Chinese to blame the insidious influence of raw capitalism and crass commercialism in corrupting Chinas public moralitymuch more powerful forces are at play here Obviouslyfor-profit motives can drive individuals in any society to immoraleven criminalconduct And unrestrained pursuit of materialism can also distort a societys values and make its members self-centred and indifferent to the needs and well-being of others But the task of maintaining public morality in a rapidly modernising society is further complicated by political factors In the Chinese caseit is impossible to talk about the decline of public morality without also discussing the role of its one-party political system As observed in any societypublic morality can be irreparably harmed by the corruption of a countrys ruling elites Whenever these elites engage in cheatinglooting and lyingtheir conduct inevitably sets a bad example for the rest of society In such a casethe deterioration of public morality originates in the corruption of the ruling elites From this perspectivewe can easily see the connection between rising official corruption and declining morality in China A good place to test this theory is the Chinese presswhichdespite censorshipis full of shocking tales of greed and debauchery featuring Chinese government officials at all levels Public morality is also impossible if there is no public trust In a one-party statepublic trust is perpetually in short supply It is well-known that authoritarian regimes cannot survive without suppressing truth or embellishing their accomplishments In this respectthe Chinese government has been quite skilfulthough not always successfulin controlling the flow of information Its officials habitually conceal their failings and even public health emergencies (such as the outbreak of dangerous contagious diseases like SARS and melamine-tainted baby formula)causing the Chinese public to lose confidence in their government Worse stillcheating and lying by officials seem to have helped them get ahead A good example here is fake academic credentials claimed by many Chinese officials Because the Communist Party has a policy of promoting more well-educated party membersthis has encouraged countless officials to burnish their resumes with fraudulent credentials Most popular are advanced graduate degrees received as part-time students or through correspondence programmes As a resultmany Chinese officials proudly affix PhD to their titles even though they never really earned the degree The practice has become so widespread and blatant that it is now a running joke in China But the damage to public trust has already been done Finallyauthoritarian repression undermines public morality in many ways Symbolicallythe Chinese governments rejection of human rights as a universal value and its violation of its citizens constitutional rights send a demoralising message to Chinese society When intrinsic human values such as dignityequalityrights and security are attacked as Western and inapplicable to Chinapublic morality becomesat least indirectlydevalued In additionthe lack of the freedom of the press in China means that the Chinese themselves cannot carry out an honest and open debate on the causes of the decline of public morality In the recent discussion of the collapse of public morality in Chinanobody dared to criticise the authoritarian nature of the current political system as a major contributing factor Of coursemuzzling the press is not the only sin committed by a one-party state in this morality play More reprehensible is its routine persecution of activists who champion causes of social justice For examplethe Chinese government has jailed or exiled activists who have been trying to help AIDS/ HIV patients who contracted the virus because of local government negligence and corruption It has imprisonedon false chargesa blind lawyer who fought for the rights of women who were forced to undergo abortions by local officials eager to meet their family planning targets Only days agoChinese tax authorities demanded that Ai Weiweiperhaps Chinas most famous contemporary artist and a defiant critic of the Communist Partypay $24 million in back taxes mainly because he angered the party by calling for a thorough investigation of the collapse of hundreds of shoddy school buildings during the earthquake in Sichuan province in 2008 So at the heart of Chinas crisis of morality is a political malaise Revitalising
