India can assist U.S. in solving Syria problem
April 21, 2017
The international law which has permitted the United States (without UNSC approval) to carry out a missile attack in Syria against the crime of chemical attack on citizens by Pres. Assad and his government, can, as a logical conclusion, permit the U.S. (without UNSC approval) to arrest Pres. Assad and his government and produce them before an International Court for the war crime of using chemical weapons, and simultaneously to fill the vacuum by installing another government in Syria through elections.
The U.S. military strike in Syria should not be a merely punitive action, rather it should lead to a permanent Syria solution because Syrians have already suffered a lot during last seven years in the name of ‘Arab-spring’ and now they should get succor by installing democracy in Syria by the U.S. and its Allies.
The U.S. has already accused Russia of complicity (Russian soldiers were allegedly at Shayrat air base when Chemical attack took place) with Syrian President Assad and his government in the chemical attack in which ~ 86 civilians (including children) have reportedly died and many more still injured / suffering. Therefore it will serve no purpose if this matter is taken to UN where at-least Russia (if not China) will use their veto to stop any U.S. initiative to find a permanent solution to the gory Syria problem.
Therefore the U.S. should proceed alone along with allies (from Christian and Muslim countries) whichever wants to join ‘US-led Peace Keeping Force (PKF) and Election machinery (m/cry),’ which will ensure a free and fair election in Syria after bringing peace, and thereafter prepare voter list in Syria, in a time-bound program of say one year.
For this ‘US-led PKF and Election m/cry’, India, which (with much smaller population) provided about 2 million persons (mostly military) to Britishers during World War I & II each, now with population of about 1.3 billion people (with about 200 million Muslims) can easily provide approximately 10 million persons (including for Election m/cry). If this Indian contingent in ‘US led PKF and Election m/cry’ is composed of mostly Indian Muslims (both Sunnis and Shias) then it will easily win the confidence and trust of Syrians and it will go a long way in bringing peace and stability to Syria. This model can be emulated later on in other troubled countries.
It is assumed that Indian Muslims do not want ISIS and other terrorist organizations to survive in Syria. Rather they want these terrorists to be eliminated from Syria etc. Therefore Indian Muslims (combined of Sunnis and Shias with other Indians) should immediately organize demonstrations at District and State headquarters and also at Jantar-Mantar Delhi and request the government of India (GOI) to ask the U.S. to constitute said PKF and Election m/cray in Syria. Moreover their delegation (combined of Sunnis and Shias with other Indians) should meet with the GOI to request that India should offer persons (even up-to 10 million or more) to ‘US-led PKF and Election m/cry’ and for which this Muslim delegation should tell GOI that Indian Muslims are prepared to provide the entire requirement of these 10 million Indians.
Nothing will be better service of Islam by Indian Muslims (if they really care for Islam given by Prophet Mohammad through Quran) than helping 22 million profusely bleeding and weeping beleaguered Muslims of Syria including their women, children and old people.
