Guess Who Wants To Help Failed Miliki's Army Fight ISIL! The Shia Hindus Sign Up To Face ISIL Mujahidun In Iraq And Syria

05 July 2014

Both western mainstream media and India subcontinent news outlets reported last week the irresponsible and hopeless recruits of thousands of young Indian Shiite volunteers as announced by Shia group Anjuman-e-Haideri which claimed it already had 25,000 volunteers and floats tender for flights to Baghdad.

Indian Shiites felt particularly humiliated last month when the Sunni tribal fighters and militants led by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant ISIL (now called simply the Islamic State IS) staged an offensive to overrun swathes of four provinces north of Baghdad and more areas in Anbar, displacing hundreds of thousands of people, alarming the international community and heaping pressure on Maliki as he bids for a third term as premier.

The reckless and sectarian Shia group Anjuman-e-Haideri in India boasted it had called for thousands of volunteers to travel to Iraq to fight the militants led Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) which last month seized from the Maliki's armies a large volume of American sophisticated weapons and resources after they had overrun large swathes of Iraq, including second city Mosul, and has since declared a "caliphate" straddling the border with Syria.

The Indian extremist Shiite organization claimed it had already registered thousands of Muslims for the mission which one of the Indian critics of the Shia organisation Anjuman-e-Haideri described as a gimmick to prove the Indian Shias can also be helpful in all that Shiite running away from battles.

Reports suggested the group has also floated a tender inviting India's aviation industry to carry the thousands of volunteers to Baghdad in a short period starting from August.

A local Indian parliamentary has reacted angrily to the dangerous scheme of the Shia group noting while the US has not come to Baghdad's aid by supplying the weapons because the Western world knew very well that the country was heading for a disaster as Maliki was not acting in a democratic fashion.

"If the civilized nations never sent their underage young people to fight foreign wars, why should any group in India be allowed to waste lives of our youth generation for the struggles out of their borders and beyond their capabilities," said the Indian parliamentarian.

"No group or agency should be allowed to send our children as militants for other nations' mercenaries for whatever reason and under any circumstance," he said.

However, President of Anjuman-e-Haideri (New Delhi chapter), Ali Naqviwas was quoted to have said on Tuesday that so far 25,000 people have volunteered for the Iraq mission and that his sectarian organization expect special rates from the aviation industry.

He said the volunteers were funding their journeys to Iraq and those unable to assemble money "will be funded by the organisation".

The group members, however, had denied its religious mission was sectarian, pointing out that the Islamic State has gained so much in the short period of their lightning offensives against Maliki's army that the Shiite groups find it hard to ignore and do nothing.

"Iraq new Islamic State needs to be stopped," he said.

"We will go to Iraq come whatever may happen to fight the ISIL and treat the wounded. This is purely a humanitarian effort. The volunteers include doctors, engineers and civil servants," chief patron of Anjuman-e-Haideri, M Ali Mirza said.

He said the group would send more than 100,000 volunteers to Iraq to fight ISIL which, he said, could reach India too.

Talking about Shia and Iran's humanitarian mission, Ken Blackwell described Iran as the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism - a major persecutor of religion.

Blackwell wrote the State Department reports on the full range of human rights abuses in Iran. These include: "disappearances; cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment, including judicially sanctioned amputation and flogging; politically motivated violence and repression, such as beatings and rape; harsh and life-threatening conditions in detention and prison facilities, with instances of deaths in custody; arbitrary arrest and lengthy pretrial detention, sometimes incommunicado; continued impunity of security forces; denial of fair public trials, sometimes resulting in executions without due process…"

Meanwhile, a New Delhi-based young Sunni doctor disagrees with the hate stance of Mirza.

"I am sure all Indians are now regretting donating to these guys of Anjuman-e-Haideri who used Indian poor and middle class contributions to humanitarian appeals for funding all those Shia death squads," said Numan Riz

"Then I am not surprising that Mirza prefers to join rank with Maliki who could rather do with more Badr Brigade types fleeing the battlefield instead of waiting for rightful swords of the Islamic State fierce fighters," he said.

He reckoned some Indian Shiite commentators claiming Sistani's call to fight in Iraq was not religious but to defend what they see as Shiite elections victory won by the Shia prime minister.

The Iranian-born Sistani, who claimed he had forced Washington to modify its blueprint for the country and agree to the election of a constituent assembly that drafted the nation's constitution is believed to be 86 and lives in the Shiite holy city of Najaf, south of Baghdad.  Last month he called to arms thousands of Shiites to fight against the Iraqi Sunnis who now control a large swath of territory astride both sides of the Iraq-Syria border.

"These people in India don't understand elections are a small part of a democracy. They need to be taught that pluralism and inclusiveness where the majority insures the rights of the minority are essential goals to strive for is the tru democracy and not ballot papers," said Riz pointing out that Maliki has hindered the democratic process accorded on him for a good 8 years.

"If anything, democracy proves it has its deficiencies with Maliki such a weak fool at the helm in the crucial first years of the young Iraq post 20003 war," he said.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's sectarian-based domestic policies backfired last month in a dramatic fashion when his army – pieced together across sectarian lines – quickly fell apart when confronted with Mujahidun fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The sudden collapse of military units defending Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, the late Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit and the oil-rich northern city of Kirkuk is reminiscent of the swift disintegration of Saddam's army at the gates of Baghdad in 2003 when the Americans invaded Iraq.

Washington, meanwhile, has pointedly declined to endorse Prime Minister al-Maliki, a Shiite, who is blamed here for failing to reach out to the Sunni community in the two-and-a-half years since US troops left, thus laying the conditions for the current crisis. "We gave Iraq the chance to have an inclusive democracy. To work across sectarian lines to provide a better future for their children. And unfortunately what we've seen is a breakdown of trust," Obama said.

Obama warned that only a new effort to frame an "inclusive" political system by Iraqi leaders will keep the country together and in a wishful thinking to repel the challenge from Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) fighters who have seized several key cities in Iraq, including Mosul.  In an angry reaction to Obama's warning that no amount of U.S. firepower could keep Iraq together if its political leaders did not disdain sectarianism and work to unite the country, Shiite cleric Nassir al-Saedi, who is loyal to anti-U.S. cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, whose Mahdi Army militia fought the Americans during their eight-year presence in Iraq, threatened that the US 300 advisers in Baghdad would be attacked

It's rather easy to dismiss these Shia groups talking about humanitarian mission, helping poor people, defending land of their holy shrines when one wonders where are these Indian organizations when their Iraqi holy cities were invaded by US, Syria people used to be killed by Assad dynasty and Libya was destroyed by the US in the name of humanitarian missions. It is crystal clear these Shia terror groups and their top cleric leaders are only mere servants to their beloved nation Khomeini state of Iran which also was sitting and watching all the invaders with no single action in defending Shia holy cities.

Indian columnist and television commentator, Saeed Naqvi, derided the Anjuman-e-Haideri's effort saying the move was "sentimental" and "foolish".

"This is sheer nonsense. It's a foolish effort. It's a bunch of nuts planning this journey. I don't think India will ever allow them to reach Iraq. There won't be visas or passports for them. Will they go on horseback?" Naqvi said.
