Jamaat-e-Islami Hind strongly condemns deadly bombing in Syria

Posted on 27 February 2018 by Admin_markaz


New Delhi: The President of Jamaat-e- Islami-Hind Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari has strongly
condemned the deadly bombings and airstrikes which have pounded Eastern Ghouta in Syria
since Feb 19 th by Syrian forces backed by Russian warplanes. In a statement released to the
media the JIH chief said: ‘’We condemn the daily bombings in Syria. We are saddened by the
news that over 520 people have died and thousands more injured. From media reports we see
that the bombing raids have targeted medical buildings, and doctors who are struggling to keep
up with the stream of severely injured patients. A large number of the dead and injured are
ordinary civilians and children. We appeal to the international community, particularly the United
Nations, Russia, Syria, America, the GCC and all important stakeholders to immediately stop
the offensive in Syria and enforce an immediate ceasefire as the war is devastating lives of
innocent civilians and reducing the chance of finding a solution to the crisis’’.

Maulana Umari averred: ‘’The Syrian regime must realize that they have failed in protecting their
own citizens by targeting civilian areas and they are responsible for Syria’s humanitarian crisis
and refugee problem. The destruction of entire swathes of cities and hundreds of thousands of
people is taking us further away from the solution to the crisis. We wish to remind them that war
and violence can never be the solution to any problem’’.

The JIH chief while raising his concern said: ‘’It is extremely regrettable that the UN Security
Council failed to agree on a ceasefire on 23 rd February. All stakeholders must force the Syrian
regime to ensure that the medical facilities, humanitarian aid and food supplies reach the
survivors. Jamaat also appeals especially to the Government of India to bring up the issue of
Syria on the international stage and offer whatever support we can to our brothers and sisters of
Syria. We also appeal to the GCC nations to remember their Islamic responsibility of supporting
the cause of humanity and use their resources to stop the powers who have a vested interest in
destabilizing the region and want to impose their imperialist agenda by dividing people and
