    Indian-origin jihadi fighters have been found fighting along with the rebels in the raging civil war in Syria. "This is one of the reasons why we think India should play a more pro-active role, because this expanding conflict will not leave anyone untouched," said Bouthaini Shabaan, political adviser to Syrian President Bashar-al-Assad, in a conversation with TOI. She quoted UN envoy Lakhdar Brahimi as saying that there were almost 38 nationalities of fighters in war-torn Syria.

    Shabaan is in India as a special envoy of Assad, to convey a message from him to PM Manmohan Singh. Syria wants India to take a lead role at the forthcoming BRICS summit, and "support" Russia and China in their stand on the conflict. Both P-5 countries have vetoed UN Security Council resolutions against Syrian regime. Shabaan met foreign minister Salman Khurshid and national security adviser (NSA) Shivshankar Menon.

    MEA spokesperson said, "India reiterated deep concern on the security situation in Syria and the continued escalation in violence. We also expressed our concern about the plight of the people of Syria arising out of intense fighting and conflict. India urged the need for peaceful resolution of the crisis with participation of all parties taking into account the legitimate aspirations of all Syrians for which the Geneva Communique which includes the 6-Point Plan of Kofi Annan provides a good basis."

    Many of the Indian fighters found in Syria are coming in from the UK, she said. Shabaan said the western narrative on the Syrian conflict was incorrect, and the war within Syria was actually being fuelled by Turkey and Qatar, with some help from Saudi Arabia.


    "Turkey wants to spread the Muslim Brotherhood all over the region," she alleged. The US, she argued, wanted to break up the region by fomenting conflicts along sectarian and ethnic lines, which could destabilize West Asia for long time to come.

    "We don't want this to become a sectarian conflict," she added. She said she had told foreign minister Salman Khurshid that India should be wary of countries funding mosques here since Damascus was living with the consequences of such action.

    Along with Pakistan, Britain should be on a terror-source watch list. Moreover, I'd like to see a more rigid anti-Islamist stand on the part of the British government. It has been widely reported that British Jihadis were flocking to Syria.

    Bluff from the Syrian side. Syria has been trying to get Indian involvement in Syria and wants to play this card to bait India in.

    Syria now reminds me of the Spanish Civil War.

    I doubt they are Indian Muslims from UK. They might be Pakistan who pretend to be Indians.

    If they were Indian Muslims, they have to go to paki mosque for prayers,as there is no Indian mosque in UK. and paki control mosque are notorious for brainwashing ..

    It might be a bluff, or may not be a bluff. Is it so far fetched to imagine that some Indians might be involved in Syrian civil war?

    It is far fetched for me. We didn't see any Indian Muslim involvement in any other war. Did we see in Balkans? In Chechnya? But yes Pakis have been all over the place and can pass off as Indians.

    They are Indian origin Muslims from the UK.

    If indeed they have been indoctrinated, it has nothing connected to India and instead it is the fundamentalism that is rife in Great Britain because of their cockeyed policy of encouraging all malcontents around the world a safe haven!

    The Minority shias will be removed from power by the Majority Sunnis
    No matter what is the cost

    After Iraq being LOST by the Sunnis to the Shias ie the after

    All the more reason why India should keep clear of intra-islamic conflicts.

    Interestingly I lived in UK for more than 6 yrs,and worked in a bank in NRI banking , I have not met single Indian Muslim . Which proves that they might be pakis fighting in Syria pretending to be Indians

    One thing i woild like 2 add is that desperate poor Indian Muslims frm GCC countries may also be attracted towards Syrian Shia-Sunni Jihad n not only frm U.K. or London........
    Its not a secret thing as all illegal activities such as Hawala....money laundering, Gold-Smuggling, Narco-Drug terrorism n Jihadi funding against India happens frm GCC-gulf countries.....

    It is possible that maybe a few could be Indians, and it is also possible that there could be a few Muhajirs claiming to be of Indian origin.
