Representive of SDC in the US: We need supra-constitutional principles to build a democratic state

The representative of the Syrian Democratic Council in the United States of America, Sinam Mohammad, said that the Syrian reality needs serious solutions to preserve the territorial integrity of Syria and protect it from disintegration and fragmentation, because Syria is a multicultural, national and religious country, where Arabs, Kurds, Turkmen and Circassians are nationalities. Muslims, Christians and Yazidis are religions. Sunnis, Shiites, Alawites, Druz, and Ismailis are sects.

Mohammad’s speech came during her participation in a written message to the participants in the fourth dialogue session held by the Ezdina Organization within the project "A Constitution That Protects Us", in the city of Qamishlo/Qamishli, in the presence of representatives of minorities, religious and national components in northeastern Syria.

Mohammad added that the need requires the presence of fortified principles, meaning "supra-constitutional principles," which are necessary for building the democratic state, pointing out that they appeared hundreds of years ago when they were called in Britain the Charter of Freedoms.

Mohammad indicated that the supra-constitutional principles touch upon major and fateful issues related to the rights, interests and future of all groups of people without exception, it is an exceptional immunity to change and amendment, adding that these principles are in a separate document or within the constitution to ensure and affirm the preservation and preservation of the sanctity and dignity of the human being.

Mohammad stressed the importance of ensuring the rights of individuals in worship, expression and equality before the law, so as to ensure the separation of religion from the state, and not to discriminate between citizens on the basis of their beliefs.

Mohammad noted that the Charter of Rights and Freedoms defines, through "freedom of thought and religion, belief and opinion, the right to peaceful assembly and association".

Mohammad added that citizens must be protected from unreasonable restrictions, the right of the individual to have a fair trial should be guaranteed, personal freedoms be protected, and no citizen should be deprived in any way of his freedom because of his religious or political beliefs or because of his origin.

Mohammad indicated that everyone has the right to freedom of thought, religion, and the practice of rituals and beliefs, individually or collectively, and no restrictions may be placed on that, the basic core of basic rights may not be violated.

Mohammad pointed out the importance of having a "special commission for human rights" to investigate complaints, work to conclude reconciliations, and encourage human rights through education and debates.

The representative of the Syrian Democratic Council emphasized that the increasing role of women in all areas of life must be guaranteed by the constitution, pointing out that different experiences have proven that increasing the representation of women in the legislative authority helps to increase the rates of democracy and a sense of justice among the various classes of society.

Mohammad said that indicators of women's empowerment are determined by "the ability to participate in political decision-making, the ability to participate in elections, and the integration into party activities".

Mohammad added that it is imperative for women to participate in social, political, economic and cultural life, and to establish the principle of equal rights for men and women in accordance with the principles of the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Mohammad indicated that the participation of women in the peace process can contribute greatly to the maintenance and strengthening of international peace and security, and that the participation of women is necessary to achieve equality, sustainable development, peace and democracy, and therefore gender considerations must be taken into account when establishing negotiation bodies and drafting the constitution.

It is noteworthy that Ezdina Organization launched a new project, in northeastern Syria, under the title "A Constitution That Protects Us", started on February 23, 2021, for a period of three months.
