End of the Independent Muslim World


One subject, four articles (1974, 1980, 1988, 2013) and the conclusion of the analysis of different interconnected perspectives in just one sentence…

 

As a student of international relations I want to share three published and one unpublished articles, two in Urdu and two in English languages, with my friends and connections.

The first article in Urdu was published in Daily the Mashriq on August 1974 in which I had discussed the possibility of an attempt by former Soviet Union for the redrawing of boundaries between Pakistan, Afghanistan and Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Turkmania with reference to a book on international politics, Balshaya Sovietskaya Entsaklopedia and Russian geo-politician Mystilawski.

In my second article in Urdu published in Pakistan’s largest circulated weekly magazine Akhbar-e-Jehan in 1980 I had discussed in detail the historical background of former Soviet Union’s attack on Afghanistan, the possibility of attack on post-revolution Iran, the visible geographic hurdles in the way for doing so and the possible consequences of such an act.

In 1988 my article in English published in Daily the Muslim discussed the reasons for former Soviet Union’s retreat from Afghanistan and the possibility of an unending civil war as a consequence of the political vacuum that was clearly anticipated after the withdrawal of the Soviet troops from Afghanistan.

The fourth article in English, available at my different blogs, was posted on 17th February 2013 discussing the background of the political landscape in the Muslim world and reasons for social and economic unrest and uncertainty which, in present global scenario, apparently do not appear to be unusual to people in general and media in particular.

If I am asked to sum up the ultimate conclusion of these four articles in one sentence, the sentence will be:

“End of Independent Muslim World Will Be Prevented Only By an Unthinkable, Unimaginable and Unbelievable Miracle”

This article highlighting three problems of developed and developing countries and the United Nations was publishes in Daily the Jang’s Karachi edition on 17th April 1975.

Since than the world has changed from a bi-polar world to a uni-polar world and now has been upgraded to the status of a multi-polar world. India, China and initially four, then five and now nine developing countries have emerged as global economic growth models. It is indeed a heartening development. India has become an economic apple of world’s eyes, China has surprised the world with its growth resilience and Israel has become an undeclared nuclear power.
Unfortunately, those problems that I had pointed out back in 1975 are still there. Players have changed but nothing else has moved from disappointing to satisfactory status. United Nations has become a hostage of global power politics and gap between rich and poor is widening to an alarming extent resulting in social unrest to a scale nonparallel in the history of international economics. Isn’t it the time for the countries those matter in international relations to wake up. Will they? That question remains unanswered.
