New Delhi: The leaders of several Indian Muslim organizations expressed their deep concern about the reports of a possible military intervention in Libya by America and NATO.
These leaders in a joint statement expressed their solidarity with the peoples struggle in Libya for restoration of democratic norms and condemned the brutal repression unleashed by Colonel Gaddafi on his own people in which hundreds of citizens have been killed.
Nevertheless they said that on the pretext of internal unrest in Libya, a foreign military intervention is not acceptable at all. Muslim public opinion rejects this attempt categorically and will not tolerate it.
“The USA and western powers have no business to act as world police man and undermine the independence and sovereignty of any country. America and NATO have created enough disturbances in Iraq and Afghanistan killing lakhs of people. History would never forgive their crimes. They cannot be given the license to carry on their ill advised adventures in other lands to create yet another crisis” the statement reads.
They said that all that the western powers are interested in is Arab oil and human right issue is just a convenient excuse to justify aggressive designs. They urged Indian government to prevail upon America and its allies to restrain form any military intervention.
