On March 15th 2022, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution by consensus, which Pakistan introduced on behalf of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) that proclaimed March 15th as International Day to combat Islamophobia.
Islamophobia is the fear of, hatred of or prejudices against the religion of Islam or Muslims in general, when seen as a geopolitical force or source of terrorism.
What prompted the UN to declare Islamophobia day despite stiff opposition from both France and India that there are other religious denominations in the world as well? Then why special consideration and treatment for Muslims? UN resolution on Islamophobia is another level of Muslim appeasement in the world as if they are the victim and need sympathy and help, but things are otherwise.
At the very backdrop of Islamophobia resolution is the very dangerous designs of American strategy makers to woo Muslims of the world in favour of America and then use them as a ploy to carry forward American interests in the world.
For that, Americans are using Ilhan Abdullahi Omar, an African American born in Mogadishu, Somalia. She is a member of the US house of representatives from Minnesota and is a politician from Democratic Party. In America and elsewhere in the world, she is a champion of the Muslim cause and propagates against Islamophobia. She continues to pour venom against India and other non-Muslims in the world. American Administration buckling under her pressure, has opened an anti-Islamophobia office in Washington DC.
In order to influence the Muslim world, Biden Administration chalked out a strategy to meddle in the rest of the world in the name of Islamophobia. Previously Americans had devised five tools to intervene in the world affairs, namely:-
Democracy, i.e. revival of democracy: Americans always tried to meddle in non-democratic countries in the name of democracy like Egypt, etc.
Human rights: In the name of Human Rights, Americans used to criticize and impose sanctions on several countries.
Biological and chemical weapons: Iraq is an example of the American excuse for intervention in the name of weapons of mass destruction.
Nuclear programme: Iran is a victim of an American policy of NPT
Terrorism: In the name of terrorism, America invaded Afghanistan and finally handed over the reins of power to those terrorists against whom they fought for twenty years. These were five tools Americans used to meddle in different countries to continue its hegemony and dictate terms to the world.
But over the years, due to waning American influence, American planners have devised Islamophobia as the sixth tool to interfere in the countries wherein Muslim lives. Whoever opposes Muslims or Islamists in the world as Islamophobia, the US will come to the rescue of Muslims. The US is trying to win over the Muslims to build its image as a saviour of Muslims and champion of the Muslim cause in the world so that it gets rid of the stigma of being the no.1 enemy of the Muslims in the world. Muslims worldwide hate the USA as Americans have caused havoc in the Muslim world on one or other pretexts, be it Iraq, Egypt, Seria, Libya, Afghanistan or elsewhere. All these countries are destabilized and ruined by Americans. At the same time, the US wants to counter Chinese growing influence over the Muslim world. US game plan followed by UN resolution on Islamophobia has a direct bearing on India. It is of great concern as India is a multicultural, multiethnic and multi-religious country. The majority of Indians are Hindus and are the most tolerant people on earth and accord respect to all religions.
The second-largest religion in India is Islam. Element of radicalism and intolerance is more in Islam as they are not willing to change their mindset and recognize other denominations like Hinduism and others. After the release of the Kashmir files, there is outrage in India. Islamic Jihadis committed genocide of Kashmiri Hindus, forced mass exodus and ethnically cleansed Kashmiri pandits from Kashmir valley. Hindus in India are getting angry with Muslims as Hindus cannot celebrate their festivals freely in their own country as stone-pelting, and intimidating Hindus is a common practice of Islamic Jihadis. Now this conflict will grow day by day as Muslims are openly challenging the authority of Hindu India and are prepared for Ghazwa e hind. American bloc, Islamic countries and china never want India should grow as an Economic as well as military power in the world, therefore, creating hurdles in the path of India as a rising power and are conspiring with Indian Muslims and exploiting them against Hindus and ruling dispensation to foment trouble and defame India in the world. Americans are trying to find an excuse to snub India on human rights issues and on issues like Islamophobia and use the UN as a tool to impose sanctions on India. Indian policymakers must smell this sinister design of America and craft their geopolitical strategy accordingly. Let us wait and see how Indians neutralize this threat posed by the US in the name of Islamophobia and Muslim appeasement.
