Suffering people of Syria

29th Nov 2013

Sir, Syrian people are suffering yet we can’t do much. Yes, we can give them aid, those who are accessible in refugee camps in neighbouring countries and some inside Syria. However, we cannot stop the war which is killing large number of people daily.

We don’t have a campaign to demand an end to the war. It is possible if we have will to do so. There are hundreds of groups inside Syria who are heavily armed by the West and Arab states fighting for their respective donors. I don’t believe they are fighting for the oppressed people of Syria. The tyrannical secular regime of Bashar Al Assad will continue to rule as long as the opposition is divided and has a sectarian policy.

The only solution as you argued well in your editorial is to pursue a diplomatic and peaceful method, not military. Al Assad and the opposition should be forced to accept a truce and then sit down and negotiate. It can be done.

Yours
