Prof. Singh spoke of the Council's appreciation for the honorable stances of China, Russia and their efforts to deter a foreign intervention in Syria's internal affairs.
Prof. Singh, also Chairman of National Panthers Party and Member of the National Integration Council, called on India's premier to redouble efforts inside the Non-Aligned Movement and take active initiatives to re-launch peace efforts solution in the Middle East, calling on the United Nations to implement resolutions 242 and 338 stipulating the withdrawal of Israeli occupation forces from all of the occupied Arab territories.
''Syria is the only secular and democratic Arab State in the Middle East,'' underscored Prof. Singh.
According to Scoop News, the Council session passed several resolutions expressing support and solidarity with the people of Syria while congratulating the leadership of Russian Federation and China for supporting the people of Syria against Anglo-American conspiracy to dislodge Syria.
"Thousands of years old Syrian civilization has been passing through tides and turbulences for centuries threatening its integrity by the western powers. The land of Prophets, peace and seat of one of the oldest civilizations of the world has again been threatened." the resolution said.
The resolution condemns violence and terror created by some neighboring countries inside Syria to serve the Zionists and USA agenda to establish their hegemony in the Middle-East as the Anglo-American Bloc has established in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Libya and other Arab Territories with ulterior motive to control oil, water and strategic land of the Arabs thus threatening peace in the region.
The resolution expresses solidarity and support with the Syrian Government headed by Dr. Bashar Al-Assad, the President of Syrian Arab Republic and the Syrian Parliament which was recently democratically elected.
The resolution urges Dr. Manmohan Singh, the Prime Minister of India to initiate an effective peace process in the Middle-East so that no country shall be allowed to interfere in the domestic affairs of Syria or any other country as is the mandate of the Charter of the United Nations.
The Council session was addressed by Prof. Maulana Shammi Tehrani, Suresh Thakur, Prof. S.H. Bhakri, Ms. Nasreen Hamid and B.S. Sajan.
Prof. Bhim Singh visited Syria as an independent observer from 19th to 25th April, 2012. Following the visit, Singh wrote to Indian Premier that there is "strong feeling in Syria that Anglo-American Bloc intends to demonize the Syrian leadership to demolish a great civilization as they did in Iraq and other Arab countries. The main reason, from the Syrian view point, is that Zionist lobby in USA controls the nerves of Obama administration and would like to use his administration to knock the Syrian President by planting ‘wolf and lamb’ stories.
Prof. Singh added that there is a "genuine feeling among the people of Syria that so-called Syrian crisis in the name of democracy etc. has been blown out of proportion in order to divert the world attention from the mandate of UN Resolutions namely, 242, 338, 425 and a dozen others which have been kept in cold storage by the United Nations under the dictates of the US in order to bail out Israel from its obligation to vacate all Arab territories including Golan Heights of Syria, Jerusalem and other Arab territories.
Singh continued that there is also a genuine feeling that ''Anglo-American interest lies in the Arab oils, waters and strategic territory and not (not) in the democracy or civil rights. In that case the Kingdoms, Sheikhdoms, Sultanates in the Arab world should have been the first on the priority list for restoration of democracy. Syria or Iran would appear at the bottom of the board in that priority."
The killing of innocent people, blasting the buildings in the midnight may it be in Aleppo or Homs or elsewhere by ghost attackers who can rightly be called as terrorists cannot be justified. This is responsibility of the State i.e. Govt. of Syria to provide protection to the life and liberty of every Syrian citizen. This subject matter is domestic and deals with internal security. The USA or the United Nations have no locus to interfere in the internal affairs of Syria.
The press reports appearing in several Indian newspapers and in the international media have been highly exaggerated and blown out of proportion. All the acts of violence committed by the terrorists (whom the US calls as Talibans in Afghanistan) in any Syrian town or village are being attributed to the government failures. On the other hand the UN observers have no role to play to identify the opposite party. Every government has right to exercise its power to maintain internal security and internal peace for the safety of its citizens and property. Let UN identify the second party to the dispute and enforce ceasefire against their terrorist activities.
The UN sanctions against Syria are highly deplorable, unacceptable in any civil society in grave violation of the UN Charter itself, barbaric and against the human dignity as such sanctions deprive children, old and women from seeking even medicines and food as it happened in Iraq resulting in the death of more than million children.
