Based on the description you gave, but without actually investigating it
myself, I believe this is 100% acceptable to be in the AUR.

If anyone wants to submit a deletion request for this package, I demand
that they include in that deletion request, a rationale for why it is
failing to live up to the description.

It is NOT sufficient grounds to delete this package, to say "but it has
the word Garuda in it, so it is not for Arch Linux"... because very
clearly, it is for Arch Linux.
