The speech of US President Joe Biden at ‘United Nations General Assembly’ (UNGA) on September 21 as given at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yd7RxPuyOu8 should be a wake-up call for the bi-partisan USA. The issues of health, climate, food security, economic progress, non-proliferation etc (dealt by Biden at UNGA) of-course are all important but nothing is more important than on-going Ukraine war which is killing the people (including innocent civilians). It is precisely here that Biden at UNGA was totally unconvincing rather merely gave lip service to Ukrainians (and to other militarily weaker UN member countries who are worried that they can also be invaded by their militarily powerful neighbors).
Biden talked so much about ‘UN Charter' and ‘Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ but committed the biggest folly of logic (as evident from facts) when he defended the composition of the UN Security Council (UNSC) where countries without democracy (China) and an aggressor country Russia (in Ukraine) have veto rights. To be fair to Prez Biden it is the USA (including its Congress and previous incumbents of White House) which is responsible for this confusion about necessities of liberal global order and which has failed to understand that it is not merely democracy with secularism but without rule-of-law and religious freedom (with conversion out of free choice which is not allowed in Muslim & Hindu majority countries) the objectives of ‘UN Charter and ‘Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ can’t be achieved.
Without going into details it is pertinent to mention that unless the USA launches a world body (by amending UN or otherwise) where no country will have veto right rather every country will have voting right commensurate with its record of secularism, democracy and other human rights and its contribution of men (including martial), money and material (including military) to this world body - the objectives like of ‘UN Charter and ‘Universal Declaration of Human Rights’ simply can't be achieved.
In the present situation such a world body is difficult to achieve but it will become very easy to achieve if the USA tries to bring secular democracy with religious freedom in the neighborhood of Russia and China who have become the greatest headache for the USA and its allies through the Ukraine war. If the USA succeeds in bringing the ‘Federation of Secular Democracy of Greater India’ (FSDGI, comprising over 2 billion people of SAARC, Iran, Myanmar and Central Asia in the border sharing region of Russia & China) under its military influence & command it would practically make it impossible for China & Russia to destabilize & threaten the liberal global order. It will also benefit about 800 million Muslims of FSDGI (including Afghanistan & Iran which Biden referred to in his 2022 UNGA speech) who will have the benefit of secular democracy (which other countries of Muslim world don’t have) and which will be the real & monumental service of the USA in the cause of human rights.
This FSDGI can become reality only when India of about 1.4 billion people takes the lead but before that India will have to put its house in order in which the Indian diaspora in the USA can help through USIDHRO and DHRO as mentioned below (in addition to Afghans in the USA who can take interest in establishing secular democracy in Afghanistan by relying on ‘2011 Indo- Afghan strategic agreement’) :-
(1)- First the recent relevant history of India. The Britishers removed three main military powers in India from 1757 to 1857 and ruled up to 1947 [the Muslims of Central Asia & Iran, Marathas (who conquered almost entire undivided India though ruled only West, Central and part of South India) and Sikhs (who during Maharaja Ranjeet Singh ruled from Sutlej , Himachal Pradesh, J&K in India to Pakistan and went up to Afghanistan]. Other warrior classes of India like Rajputs, Jats, Gurkhas, Dogras etc were in 'mansabdari' / suzerainty arrangement with either Mughals or Britishers. In 1947 the USA facilitated Britishers (debilitated by World War I & II) in leaving India by installing mechanisms of the UN.
(2)- During Muslim rule not only the Persian language (later on Urdu by taking most of the words from Persian / Farsi with syntax and grammar of Hindi) was the language of rulers but Iranians comprised the major part of the administration of Muslim rulers in India including of Mughals. Even Afghanistan became separate after Abdali (of Panipat fame) who was military commander of Nadir Shah of Iran who sacked Delhi in 1739. Hence due to Muslim rule and British rule in India the area from Myanmar in East to Iran in West and from Kanyakumari / Sri Lanka in South to Central Asia in North is Greater India where Hindi (and its variant Punjabi, Gujarat, Marathi, Bengali etc) in Devanagari script and Urdu (which can also be written in Devanagari script) can easily be understood. Even South India uses Sanskrit (the mother of Hindi) in Devanagari script in its major religion, Hinduism.
(3)- In other words, Greater India using many languages with ONE Devanagari script (which will give emotional unity to Greater India) of over 2 billion people (more than quarter of world’s population) will be the world’s largest consumer market under the ultimate influence and military command of the USA. Moreover many parts of this Greater India have territories without which China's one belt one road and other initiative are impossible (same with Russia which will lose the region of Central Asia where it has huge influence including strategic & military). This not only will automatically end the cold war - II between ‘liberal Western democracy’ against the ‘authoritarian Chinese system’ but will take the winds out of the sails of Russia (in the Ukraine or any other such war) with resounding victory to the USA without putting any US-boots on ground. This greater India will also bring two and half nuclear power (India, Pakistan plus Iran) under military command & influence of the USA which will remove the major headache of the world community and also of the leader of the free world the USA.
(4)- The FSDGI can be realized without any legal or other difficulties especially in view that the partition of India has been rendered illegal because population transfer was not part of “Indian Independence Act 1947” passed by the British Parliament. But presently about 160 million Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims are forcibly displaced during partition of India (including their descendants), the partition which was carried out when India was a member of the US-sponsored UN. Hence the USA has every legal right to enforce said dual citizenship which is bound to culminate into undoing the partition of India. The political model of the FSDGI is easily workable if its civilian and military matters are kept separate as (i)- The civilian matters of the FSDGI should be left to its all member countries (existing or carved-out from existing out of free choice of its people) of the FSDGI (ii)- Military matters of FSDGI should be conducted by a martial body in which command structure can be of two tiers, the USA at the top and all the countries of the FSDGI at the second tier.
(5)- the USA can achieve the FSDGI very easily by three means (i)- The USA can use Indian diaspora in the USA (which is about 4.8 million and has considerable influence over the Indian establishment) to launch USIDHRO and DHRO as mentioned below (ii)- By asking ‘The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom’ (USCIRF) and Human Rights Committees of US-Congress (TLHRC and others) to call Indian Muslims and others who have been appearing before these institutions to complain about violations of human rights of Muslims in India and to question these complainants as to why Indian Muslims not filing proper writ petitions in Indian courts to secure the human rights of Muslims (as mentioned at https://www.pakistanchristianpost.com/opinion-details/4020 and on the contrary coming to these US institutions for merely propaganda purpose (iii)- By motivating Afghans in the USA to take interest in establishing secular democracy in Afghanistan by relying on ‘2011 Indo- Afghan strategic agreement’ generally as mentioned at https://www.pakistanchristianpost.com/exclusive-reports-details/233 ).
(6)- Later on Hindu majority India can get temples (in place of masjids) not only at Ayodhya but at Kashi and Mathura too (which is the main demand of Hindus) through legislation by Parliament (which the BJP can easily do due to its present numbers in Parliament and which will spare Muslims also from unnecessary humiliation of losing legal battles in compromised courts under pressure of majoritarianism of Hindu majority India). But it does not require a genius of political science to understand that the fallout of the restoration of status-quo-ante of Babri-masjid by Supreme Court (due to said petition by Indian Muslims out of the the snub / censor by USCIRF & Congress Committee including TLHRC) will be so momentous that nothing less than the FSDGI will be able to normalize the situation in India and by implication in entire Indian subcontinent.
(7)- Once the issues of Babri-masjid, dual citizenship to 160 million Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims, plebiscite in J&K and Balochistan, realization of mini-SAARC - 2 are raked in Courts by Indians (especially Muslims) no one can stop the realization of the FSDGI because this region (which has lagged behind mainly due to communal poison) desperately needs it. incidentally the present situation is ripe for it in India because (i)- About 15 % Muslim population of India is again agitated also (in addition to what they have been facing during last 8 years of Modi / Hindutva rule) due to what is happening about Gyanvapi-masjid case (ii)- The social & economic condition of about 25 % population, the SC, ST of India is still far from satisfactory (iii)- Two third of India is wholly or partly dependent on agriculture income and farmers (who have committed suicides in hundreds of thousand out of financial problems) are still agitating (iv)- The considerable population of India wants genuine secularism and are dissatisfied not only with declared communal party the BJP (the follower of Savarkar’s 'Hindu Rashtra') but with other so-called secular parties too.
(8)- The ‘National Crime Records Bureau’ data has reportedly revealed that 70,818 cases of atrocities against Dalits are pending investigation till 2021 (the cases of gang-rape and then murder of Dalit girls are alo common in India). Hence the Asian Indian Americans should launch two NGOs (i)- One in the USA (as per laws of the USA) by Asian Indians living in the USA with suitable name (may be) ‘US Indian Dalits Human Rights Organization’ (USIDHRO) (ii)- Second in India (as per laws of India) by Asian Indians living in the USA (who are citizens of India) along with other Indians with suitable name (may be) ‘Dalits Human Rights Organization’ (DHRO). The USIDHRO should move the US administration and both houses of Congress (and its committees) to create special cells where the USIDHRO will submit regular reports about atrocities on Dalits in India in the interest of assisting these institutions & organizations (including USCIRF & TLHRC) to formulate policies about protecting human rights of Dalits in India.
(9)- The DHRO will have at least one office (where Dalits can go in person and contact its office bearer on hotline by phone / mobile) in the capital of India and of all the States and Union Territories (more such offices where ever required). The DHRO should move the Union government and all the State / UT governments in India to create a special cell in Schedule Caste & Schedule Tribe Commissions (National & of States) and in police which will have hot-line where DHRO will be able to register complain of atrocity happening to any Dalit especially which requires urgent police help. In case DHRO finds the response of police and SC / ST commissions wanting then the DHRO will bring it to the notice of the USIDHRO which will approach US authorities (of administration and Congress) and may even contact relevant Human Rights authorities of the UN to take effective measure so that such lapses do not take place in future. The DHRO will also submit recommendations / suggestions from time to time to the governments of India and of the States / UT as to what is to be done (administratively and through legislation) in the interest of eliminating atrocities on Dalits.
(10)- This DHRO with said offices in all the capitals (of India and of its States / UT) will go a long way in stabilizing the FSDGI if these offices are extended to every district of the FSDGI which will provide direct access to the USA in protecting the human rights of the people of the FSDGI which will be the best guarantee for the stability of the FSDGI.
It is hoped in this globalized world not only the Biden-administration but the entire USA will take the matter of liberal global order seriously (which is in the interest of the USA too) by first establishing liberal political order in Greater India of above 2 billion people (as mentioned above) which is bound to finish the capacity of Russia & China to harm the liberal global order.
