Pros and Cons of IndiaÃ¢â¬â¢s vote in the US sponsored UNHRC Resolution against Sri Lanka.
India in the end has incorporaten a stand and voted for the US sponsored final result at the get together Nations top Human Rights Body (UNHRC). Every decision taken has its feature value. So let us take a timbre at the Pros and Cons of Indias vote in the UNHRC Resolution against Sri Lanka on with some operable alternatives. The im portholeant positive aspect of the voting in favour of the resolution is that, the governing of India has finally proved that India stands alongside the Sri Lankan Tamils and they allow be at that place for the benefit of the people.It is a welcome stand by the giving medication, correct though it happened after a tough political lobbying between the regional parties of Tamil Nadu. It also shows that India acts in its own show its commitment to shun madness against the unarm civilians and for their rehabilitation. As the whole Tamil Community people were tone forward for India to act, the GoI ( organization of India) did the right thing to garner their support.It may also indue an end to the Zigzag diplomacy followed by the Rajapakshas Government (Giving a Commitment when Foreign minister of India reaches in Sri Lanka due to pressure from the Tamil Nadu politicians and when he boards the flight, commitment go away be in dustbin). May be there is a minute possibility of taking Rajapakshas Government to the ICC (International Criminal Court) for the war crime.But what is the resolution in the UNHRC really intends to do to the Sri Lankan Government. To be frank it achieves nothing, instead it HUMILIATES Sri Lanka in the World Political Scenario. The shame is thought to do wonders in the country, which has been proven wrong many a number of times (There are more than 200 resolutions passed against Israel for its action against Palestine, though no solution throw off been found).The resolution draft which has not been released formally by the UNHRC, is intended to contain only recommending the Government to act accor d to the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC), with the coordination and industrious support of the member States of the UNHRC (affecting the sovereignty of the country, comparable eg USA dictating India how to control Naxalism and monitoring constantlyy move made by the State forces). As India had voted in favour of the US sponsored UNHRC resolution, the whole geographical hegemony is shifting underneath India.With this vote GoI has deliberately distanced itself from Sri Lanka in the International Scenario, since Sri Lanka has forever been toeing India in all major International organization, this action might alight their passion to pursue their own interest or lean towards the ever growing Dragon Warrior (China). A mutual distrust will be created between the GoI and the Government of Sri Lanka (Even though the severity of the resolution has been diluted with active intervention of India).The Big Brformer(a) attitude of India in the South Asiatic region journ eys in the downward swirl. India had always maintained a elevation of Non Aligned Country and notion to avoid any involvement in the internal affairs of other countries, but this voting pattern has heavily dented that image which was carved and niched by Foreign Affairs safe Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. It leads to the minding of the Indias commitment to the NAM (Non Aligned Movement), SAARC and other regional organizations, who look upon India as a key player in the region.China has been profferd with a golden opportunity to strengthen its String of Pearls strategy in Sri Lanka (eg Habantota port developed by Chinese firms) (encircling India on all the sides diplomatically and strategically). The other important aspect is that the Tamilans in the Sri Lanka are now being represent as Enemy of the State (due to the humiliation of the country in the gentleman arena) by the Sinhalese people, which will lead to the increase in the shift between the various communities, rather than improving their co existence and showtime of the reconstruction of the nation.Even though India had taken a stand in the issue, GoI must actively participate in the rehabilitation of the Sri Lankan Tamil people with a Solution oriented greet. India has already provided a fate hand in the clearing of the Land mines in the Battle field, along with the building of the houses for the Tamil People. Infra organise development projects (railways) are being mooted in the war torn areas (Even though the essential supplies sent from India is being gooey in the godowns in Sri Lanka). India must make a dedicated approach towards the Tamil Eelam issue, rather than succumbing to the pressures of the regional parties.Since India is a heavyweight in SAARC and NAM, diplomatic channels can be opened in coherence with these regional organizations to look into the rehabilitation of Tamil people in the Tamil Eelam region. It will provide a more conducive environment to the Government of Sri Lanka & amp the people, rather than being dictated by the high handedness of the legal philosophy of the World (USA). People are the pillars of the democracy, so the people to people pass between the various communities in Sri Lanka must be encouraged. Rajapakshas authorities must give in to the demand of the 13th amendment plus plea.This would provide the suitable platform for get downing in a federal structure in the country (dissolution of the power to the Chief Ministers as in the baptistery of India), which is in the best interest of all the stakeholders or communities. Effective travel must be taken against the offenders who were responsible for the atrocities, set loose upon the unarmed civilians and they must be punished according to the rule of law. The one question which will always linger in the mooting of the resolution is the active piece played by the USA, which dramatizes them as the champion of the Human Rights (Literally).The answer will be real simple that Uncle Sa m was unable to place a firm foot in the Island nation, while the Government of Sri Lanka were fostering and nurturing their relations with countries which have been hostile with USA (Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, etc). This prompted USA to bring the Island nation to bring in order along with its favour, which has severely backfired the USA policy (the tough anti American mood within the people). This incident outlines the incompetence in assuring that India would become a world power in the closelipped future.If the Human Rights violation in the Sri Lanka had been taken seriously by the Government of India and intended to take action against the lax nature of the action exploit against the offenders, GoI should have sponsored the resolution rather than backing a resolution which is sponsored by a nation which is totally alien to the Island nation, the responsibility holds up on the shoulders of India due to its geographical, ethnical, cultural and economic proximity to the country.War , would always leave a undeniable scare in the mind of the people along with the sorrows and despair, the Citizens of Sri Lankan have long been made the pawns due to the bad decision making at the time of Independence in the Island nation. Time is always a unattackable healer. The War now over, the hatred sowed in the minds of the different communities must be weeded out and a mutual trust must be interconnected in the minds of the people, with whatever solution available.The International community must look in to the long term prospect of the building the nation to its zenith rather than involving in petty politics and gaining fame. Government of Sri Lanka must aptly consider that United is Strength, Divided is to Fail. Therefore the State must take any possible measure to unite the various communities in the country, even when it is to compromise on some basic ideals. Since ultimately it is for the people the Government is formed as Democracy.
