New Delhi, December 10:

Academicians and thinkers from Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Morocco as well as from the US, Britain, Ireland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Finland and Italy have gathered here for a two-day conference to discuss the future of Arab Spring and its regional and global ramifications.

The conference is being hosted at Sapru House by the Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA) in association with the New York-based International Research Network on Religion and Democracy (IRNRD) and Developing Countries Research Centre (DCRC).

Being held for the first time, the conference is to deliberate upon the wider political, socio-economic and religio-cultural implications of the democratic transformation in and around the region that began in Tunisia and spread to other countries.

In his opening remarks, ICWA director general Rajiv Bhatia observed that the developments in the Arab world in the past two years have changed the contours of the political and socio-cultural landscape of the region. He underlined that the Arab world, which strategically os significant for India, is undergoing transition. That has generated democratic impulses for the people in the region and beyond.

Arab Spring? Debate

About time for this spectrum of Academicians to be shedding light on this grey area; for it all began, when a political leader extended the Hand of Friendship to the Muslim World in Cairo. Resulting in and backfiring to the point of dislodging the dictatorial Puppets of yesteryears to bring in the democratically elected Novices’ for the benefit of the Puppets Masters and Kingmakers. In due process the consequential aspects have been greatly flawed with monocular views and egoistical outlook of the interested parties. Mainly due to this, an awakening has taken place from the lessons learned in the overthrowing of Gaddafi in Libya-this single and most recent example; made the Russians and the Chinese weary of ill intentions so as to not allowing intervened and not allowed the repeat of that to take place in Syria for they vetoed at UN.
They [China and Russia in particular] set out to prevent the destabilization in the North African Countries; which is leading to Aid and Strengthen the Zionist state of Israel’s resolve of expansionism; the US is supportive of this to the very end. All the turmoil since the Jasmine revolution in Tunisia, has weakened the Arab world; thus brought to the fore internal power struggle in these countries, leaving their foreign policy in tatters and distant them from the comprehension of their existence for what lay ahead for Egypt? is lost in the twilight zone.
