Students Islamic Organisation oppose Bush visit

Written by: Staff

Hyderabad, Mar 1: Andhra Pradesh Students Islamic Organisation (SIO) has issued a declaration opposing United States (US) President George W Bush's visit to India and urging the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government not to sign nuclear deal with the US.

Speaking to newspersons here yesterday SIO AP Zone President Syed Tanveerul Haq said that America has brutally destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan and Haiti in recent times, besides threatening Iran and North Korea.

"The US has an extremely terrible record of crimes against humanity. It flaunts the biggest nuclear, chemical, biological as well as conventional weapons arsenal," he alleged.

Mr Haq said the current US strategy is to economically, politically and militarily encircle and dominate Asia, take control of its vast energy resources and strangle all the Asian countries one after another, by setting them against each other.

He said as part of this 'game plan' the US is trying to forge a 'strategic alliance' with India in the economic, political and military spheres.

"Mr Bush's visit to India can be considered as the next step to firm up this alliance. SIO is opposed to such alliance with imperialist US," he pointed out.

Mr Haq claimed the Bush administration is preparing to impose war against Iran, too. It aims to achieve domination over the oil resources in West Asia, which is an open secret.

"We demand the UPA Government not to sign nuclear deal as it undermines our sovereignty and integrity and not to vote against Iran in the next meeting of IAEA. It is our responsibility to protect the weaker nations of the world from the imperialist agression," he added.

Mr Haq said SIO is also organising a two-day Exhibition at Hockey Ground Masab Tank on the US President and his imperialist policies.

He said the exhibition would be inaugurated by Jamaat-e-Islami Hind State President Abdul Basit Anwar.

"The SIO is organising signature campaign opposing Mr Bush's visit. A delegation of SIO would submit the signatures to AP Governor Rameshwar Thakur," he added.
