Condemning the Bashaar regime for turning Syria into a killing field Muslim leaders at a seminar on "Syria, a human Crisis and Indian Stand" on Monday asked the government to spell out its stand on the Syrian issue as India being an active member of the Non-Aligned Movement has to share responsibility of stopping bloodshed in Syria.

Stating that Syria is the land of prophets and messengers of Allah. It has much significance in the Islamic history Abdul Wahab Khilji in his presdential address said, "I do not consider Bashar Al –Assad a Muslim who is killing his own people for the sake of staying in power."

Urging India to intervene in the Syrian crisis and exerts pressure on the international community for finding a peaceful solution of problem, president of the Welfare Party Mujtaba Farooq deplored that certain forces active in the garb of Islam had been committing heinous crime against humanity in Syria.

"They are playing into hands of certain western forces to tarnish the image of Islam as western powers create such problems to halt the progress of Islamic world," he said.

He opined that the world has been divided bipolar as certain vested-forces do not want the ascendency of Islamic forces to power. "These forces are trying to weaken the Islamic movements by creating sectarian divide in Muslim societies", he said.

President of the Muslim Political Council of India Dr Tasleem Ahmad Rehmani said the Syrian civil war has also become a major humanitarian issue as one fourth of the country's population has been displaced externally or internally.

Dr Rehmani, who recently returned from civil- war affected areas on Syrian-Turkey border after spending 20 days to get first-hand knowledge of the situation, said the situation is very horrible that demands urgent attention of the international community.

Coming down heavily on the Bashar regime, he said more than 200 thousand people have been killed and thousands injured since uprising broke out against the Ba'ath regime in March 2011.

"In besieged cities and towns, the army has cut off power and water supplies and destroyed hospitals", he said.

"I got an opportunity to study and understand the situation inside Syria and relief activities carried out by various international relief agencies, voluntary organisations in coordination with the govt. of Turkey. The situation is really horrible and inhuman. We as peace loving Indians must ponder upon this human crisis in Syria", he added.

He pointed out that the war is being stretched as at least ten countries including US, Russia, China, Israel, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Turkey were involved directly or indirectly.

He said the US and Israel do not want that the brutal regime of President Bashar al Assad to fall as they feared that Islamic force may come to power.

"It is the very reason that these forces are trying to stretch the civil war", he said adding that the Syrian crisis cannot be called a civil war as the people of Syria are fighting a 'mini-world war'.
