New Delhi. Muslim Students Organisation of India (MSO) organised a Panel discussion on “Russia Ukraine Crisis and Indian Perspective”. Dr. Shujaat Ali Quadri moderated the discussion while Professor Mohibul Haq (Department of Political Science, AMU) and Prashant Tandon (Senior Journalist) highlighted the ongoing crisis.
The Russian military operation in Ukraine highlights that the world has reached a dangerous fork in the road. It is critically important for people who are receiving the bulk of their information from the capitalist media, to know that the current crisis is the byproduct of a long effort by the US to establish absolute domination throughout Europe. The U.S. policy is aimed at undermining Russia’s security by surrounding it with advanced missiles that can reach their Russian targets in less than 10 minutes.
At this critical moment, it is imperative that the U.S. government change its reckless, provocative stance of encircling Russia and relentlessly expanding NATO eastward. After having all of its demands rejected by the United States and NATO, the Russian government decided to invade Ukraine. As of this moment, major military operations are underway.
The Russian government said it will not occupy Ukraine but that it intends to carry out the “demilitarization” and “de-Nazification” of the country. It is unclear what these terms actually mean. The deadly fighting currently raging across Ukraine is a tragedy. In any war, the working class of the nations involved are the ones to bear the brunt of the hardship and suffering.
While we do not support the Russian invasion, we reserve our strongest condemnation for the U.S. government, which rejected Russia’s legitimate security Concerns in the region, with total intransigence that they knew could provoke such a war.
MSO demands that the U.S. government and its allies in the imperialist NATO military alliance immediately cease their provocative behaviour designed to escalate the crisis and provide security guarantees that can be the foundation for the restoration of peace – the cornerstone of which must be a pledge to end NATO expansion. This is what can bring relief to the people of Ukraine.
MSO Suggest to government of India
- Make Sure Urgent Ceasefire for 48 Hour to evacuate the students & others in a safe Place.
- This is the High time for India to revive the Non Aligned Movement (NAM) & Should Call an Emergency Meeting of NAM countries in New Delhi.
- There is a Strong Need for UNSC Reforms.
