humanitarian or military means alone BY:Frank-Walter Steinmeier …Germany is affected too That’s why its decision to pitch in with military and humanitarian support in the fight against the IS The terror organisation that calls itself the Islamic State is advancing with monstrous brutality persecuting and killing anyone who stands in its way In the areas they control the IS terrorists enslave and humiliate people who do not share their beliefs Yazidis and Christians but also Muslims who refuse to submit to their radical ideology are forced to leave everything behind and flee for their lives The IS now controls a transnational territory that is home to more than five million people and contains cities oil wells dams and airports The fact that these terrorists include a growing number of foreign fighters from Europe is a cause of alarm for all of us With the advanced weapons that the IS has captured and its significant financial means the terrorist group is a threat to the survival of Iraq’s Kurdistan region and to Iraqi statehood itself — and even to the already fragile regional order in the Middle East Without the recent determined military intervention by the United States Kurdish forces would not have been able to halt the advance by comparatively better-armed IS fighters In this dramatic situation Germany has provided humanitarian assistance to the people fleeing the IS and supported the Kurdistan regional government by supplying food blankets tents and generators Now my government has decided to expand its aid to the Kurds in the fight against the terrorists by sending weapons and military equipment This decision has sparked intense debate in Germany Indeed some people even see it as a fundamental change in German foreign policy I do not share this view The fact is that Germany is taking on its responsibility in the world — in the fight against the IS but also in the Middle East in Africa and in Afghanistan Along with the European Union we are particularly active in the search for a political solution to the highly dangerous crisis close to home the conflict between Russia and Ukraine Responsibility is always about concrete action We must calibrate our engagement depending on what is at stake for the fundamental principles of a peaceful and just international order for our own interests and our closest partner countries and allies Germany’s scepticism about military intervention and its restrictive approach to arms exports are politically well founded and deeply ingrained in Germans’ collective consciousness There is no paradigm shift regarding our foreign-policy principles which include a policy of military restraint But in the face of a threat like the one posed by the IS we must not hide behind principles We must take responsible decisions knowing full well that they involve difficult trade-offs We take the greatest care in making such decisions and do so in close coordination with our European transatlantic and regional partner countries Where there is a threat of mass murder where the stability and order of countries and entire regions are endangered and where there is no chance of successful political settlement without military support we must be willing to honestly weigh up the risks of getting involved against the consequences of doing nothing This was why Germany decided to take part in international military interventions in Kosovo in 1999 and in Afghanistan in 2001 That is also why we decided that there were good reasons for opposing military action in Iraq in 2003 Our opposition to the IS terrorists does not start with supplying arms nor does it end there The IS cannot be stopped by either humanitarian or military means We the international community must develop a comprehensive political strategy to counter this terrorist organisation systematically In my view four mainelements are crucial here: We need a new effective and inclusive Iraqi government in Baghdad to dry up potential support for the IS by closing ranks with the Sunni tribes We need intensive diplomatic efforts to unite the countries in the region to confront the IS threat together We need the Islamic world’s leaders to clearly distance themselves from the IS and to unmask the rank cynicism of the propagandists and ideologists claiming religious legitimacy for terrorist savagery Finally we need resolute steps to hamper and prevent the flow of fighters and fundsto the IS Looking at the crises spanning the Maghreb the Middle East and eastern Europe many perceive that the world is coming loose from its moorings Crisis and conflict are creeping closer to Europe and certainties that have prevailed for 25 years since the end of the Cold War have lost their hold We in Europe must not indulge the illusion that we could just shut ourselves away from the world if it goes to pieces and maybe offer a bit of humanitarian aid Our prosperity and our security depend on our unprecedented network of political and economic ties to the whole world Wherever order falls apart — especially in the vicinity of Europe’s borders — we will be affected too In Germany we therefore need to ask ourselves objectively: What are our options and what are our responsibilities In doing so we also need to be aware of our limitations Germany is the largest country in the EU politically stableand economically strong but what we can contribute with humanitarian assistance politically or militarily to conflict resolution is only meaningful and effective if implemented in close collaboration with others When we act we act in concert with our European and transatlantic partners — this is and will remain the fundamental basis of German foreign policy The writer is the foreign minister of Germany

Offering a solution to the Ram temple-Babri Masjid dispute the Shia central waqf board of Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday told the Supreme Court a mosque could be built in a Muslim-dominated area at a "reasonable distance" from the disputed site in Ayodhya With this submission the Shia board becomes the first Muslim organisation to come out in support of the demand of various Hindu bodies on the Ayodhya issue The Hindu bodies while demanding that Ram temple be allowed to be constructed at the disputed site have suggested that a mosque could be built at a distance away from this area The affidavit filed by Syed Waseem Rizvi Chairman of Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board disputed the claim of Sunni waqf board saying the Babri Masjid site was its property and only it was entitled to hold negotiations for an amicable settlement of the dispute Favouring construction of the mosque at a "reasonable distance" from the site it said "Closeness of places of worship ie Masjid and Mandir of the two litigating denominations should be avoided in as much as both denominations using loud speakers tend to disturb religious performances of each other often leading to conflicts bringing acrimony in the two factions Representational image Reuters "Answering respondent (Shia Board) is also of the view that to bring quietus masjid can be located in a Muslim- dominated area at a reasonable distance from the most revered place of birth of Maryada Purshottam Sri Ram" The affidavit assumes significance as it has been filed within few days of the apex court agreeing to fast track the hearing on a batch of appeals challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict on the land dispute in the case The Shia Board in its 30-page affidavit said that the Sunni Central Waqf Board was under the dominant control of Sunni "hardliners fanatics and non-believers in peaceful co-existence who have absolutely no stake in the present case" Assailing the stand of the Sunni Central Waqf Board it said ".since Babri Masjid was a Shia waqf board property Uttar Pradesh Shia Central Waqf Board alone is entitled to negotiate and arrive at a peaceful settlement with other remaining stakeholders" The Shia body has also sought setting up of a committee for exploring an amicable resolution of the vexatious issue It sought setting up of the committee headed by a retired Supreme Court judge two retired judges of Allahabad High Court Uttar Pradesh chief minister or his nominee and a nominee from the office of the prime minister It said that Shia central waqf board’s nominee and a representative each from Nirmohi Akhara and Hindu sect shall make suggestions and proposals for amicable settlement before the committee The Shia board one of the parties in the pending appeals in the apex court referred to the Allahabad High Court judgement and said that it has been held that "Muslims" should get not less that one-third of the disputed area "By saying ‘Muslims’ the high court obviously meant ‘Shias’ since the high court rejected the claim of the Sunni Board that Babri Masjid was a Sunni waqf The high court having held that Babri Masjid is a waqf rejected the claim of Sunni Board that it was Sunni waqf claimed on the basis of notification dated 16 February 1944 by the Chief Commissioner of waqfs under the Muslim Waqfs Act 1936 "The high court held the notification as ‘illegal’ since it was issued in violation of the provisions of the Act 1936 without issuing notice to the interested persons a statutory requirement Thus the claim of Sunni Board stood negated that it was a Sunni Waqf Needless to say that a waqf has to be either Shia or Sunni waqf and not a waqf alone "It is always known by its creator ie wakif or waqif being Shia or Sunni" the affidavit said Referring to 1620 inscriptions which were found on the disputed site the Shia Board said that it proved beyond doubt that Babri Masjid was built by Mir Baqi a Shia who created a Shia Waqf "The said masjid being a Shia waqf and its last mutawalli (manager of the waqf-property) (1949) was admittedly a Shia" the affidavit said Recently a three-judge bench comprising Justices Dipak Misra Ashok Bhushan and SA Nazeer has been constituted by Chief Justice JS Khehar to hear a batch of petitions challenging the Allahabad High Court verdict in the Ayodhya land dispute case from 11 August The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court had in 2010 ruled a three-way division of the disputed 277 acres area at the Ram Janambhoomi-Babri masjid site in Ayodhya The three-judge bench of the high court by a 2:1 majority had said the land be partitioned equally among three parties — the Sunni Waqf Board the Nirmohi Akhara and Ram Lalla On 21 July a bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar had said that it would soon take a decision to list the matter for early hearing The court’s remark had come on a plea of BJP leader Subramanian Swamy who sought urgent listing and hearing of the matter Swamy had said the main appeals against the Allahabad High Court order are pending for the last seven years in the apex court and these required urgent hearing He had also said that a separate petition had earlier been filed by him seeking enforcement of his right to worship without much hassle at the site The BJP leader had told the court that he has been allowed by the apex court to intervene in the matter and is seeking expeditious disposal of the cases Becharaji: Battling allegations of playing the soft Hindutva card by visiting temples during his election campaign in Gujarat
