MILITARY OUSTS MORSI FROM POWER
[Shamim A Siddiqi, NY]
Egyptian powerful military has ousted the democratically elected President M Morsi from power, put him under house arrest, suspended the Constitution, top Judge of Constitutional Court Adly M Mansoor sworn in as the head of the Interim Government, the top leadership of Muslim Brotherhood has been arrested or detained in hundreds and new elections are promised to be held, when it is not clear. Through this process both democracy and the initiative towards Islamic System all have been torpedoed by General A Fattah el-Sisi by accepting the demand of the secular and the liberal forces of the country and that of the Western Godless societies.
In its wake, more than 50 people have been killed and about 300 are injured. The secular forces of the country both at home and abroad are jubilant. With this undemocratic, unconstitutional and unethical interference of Egyptian Military, the process towards Islamization has been stunned with a drastic set back throughout the Middle East and North Africa and the fate of Arab Spiring has encountered its own death by its own people in uniform.
The Western allergy against Islam
has again achieved a milestone of satisfaction in the Delta of Nile – the heart
of Muslim world. All were extremely worried by watching the so-called Islamist
coming to power throughout North Africa and every where they now got the
process reversed or wrapped up and buried in the sands of
However, in the case of
Their prime job was to continue in creating a clear awakening in Muslim masses for another five years while working energetically with ample seats in the Parliament and then emerging like a trustworthy force of Da’ees, workers and the devoted servants of masses with their trust in next Elections. At that time no amount of military in the country could stop their emerging to run the Government of the country single handedly. That process has now been differed to a distant future and only Allah knows when they will come out of the trial and tribulations of Military’s supremacy. I fear the days of Nasir may not be in their lot that took 60 years to depart and General Al-Sisi does not become the Hosni Mubarak
In consequence, Arab Spiring seems
lost in the doldrums of compromise as in
However, the Muslim Ummah shouldn’t feel discouraged at all. These are just the interim set backs that are occurring due to our own follies and shortsightedness till the Ummah resurrects herself as “Ummatun Wasatan”, solves its own affairs on the basis of Tawheed, Amanah, Akhirah and the life pattern of Rasulullah (S) and presents its glaring model to mankind to follow and leads a balanced life with justice and peace in the human abode. The Islamic Movements around the world have to do this job lest it becomes too late.
Both democracy and capitalism have failed to solve any of the human problems. Islam is the only System left to be tried. Muslims have to put it to trial in their homeland and then present its model to the suffering humanity. Arab Spiring was going to serve a Chance but Muslim leadership is fast losing that opportunity due to factors analyzed above. The Islamic Movements have to undertake this mission afresh in a continuous process and work hard for the Renaissance of Islam within a decade or so. IQBAL rightly encourages us to go on trying again and again:
“NA HIN IQBAL NA UMMID AP NI KUSHT-E-VIRAN SAY <> ZARA NUM HU TU YEH MITTI BAHUT ZAR KHAIZ HAI SAQI.
