Swamy was commenting on the US’s decision to take the serious action against the ISIS. Swamy said, “It is extremely necessary, because, the ISIS is a threat to the world, they have declared themselves as a caliphate, and the caliphate requires all Muslims, in whichever country they are, to forget about their nationality and become an international citizen of the caliphate. They (ISIS) are using very brutal and use primitive methods for killing people and dishonouring women. Therefore, they are a threat to our civilization. I think that India, the United States and Israel have a special responsibility because of our different strengths. India has manpower strength, the United States has weapons strength and Israelis have intelligence strength”.
Swamy also added that PM Modi should offer the nation’s support to the United States in their effort to refrain the growing influence of ISIS.
The US President Barack Obama had earlier declared that the air strikes that were targeting the terror group in Iraq will now be expanded to Syria.
