The Reverberation of Justice Seeking in the Islamic Awakening Era
Navideshahed: Popular slogans chanted in the course of uprisings in countries like Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen have two things in common: demand for Islamic justice and demand for improvement of the living conditions.
About 18 months ago, reports about Ben Ali’s fleeing to Saudi Arabia heralded developments that are now known as the third factor in fundamental changes in the Islamic system.
After the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the September 11 incident, the Islamic Awakening is considered the third most important development in the international system in the past 3 decades. This influential development has produced a new set of principles in the world of politics and altered many equations and predictions about the future.
The Islamic Awakening tide shed light on many a fact about how the dictatorial countries like Egypt, Yemen, and Tunisia has been run.
It was revealed, for example, that 10 million people have been suffering from hunger in Yemen, or that Egypt is in so much debt because of Mubarak regime’s mismanagement and corruption that the country will need as much as $23 billion to get out of the economic crisis it is facing.
The legacy of the collapsed despotic regime for their people is nothing but poverty, destitution and debts. If the newly-founded governments neglect the economic situation and people’s demands for improvement of living conditions, it will lead to disappointment at the revolution.
These governments need to do their best to create the proper conditions for improvement of economic conditions. On the other hand, people in these countries should exercise patience and refuse to abandon their fight for justice.
