Uprising in the Muslim world against tyrant rulers

Rational is always what is possible, impossible is irrational. People always make decisions or conclude what is realistically possible. History is evident that there have been various cases where events turned in a way which was impossible to even imagine or seeing it practical. The corrupt and oppressive leaders of the Muslim world never imagine that time will change. The authority, power and wealth they hold can go away in days. The overconfidence in their personalities for their authorities and power have made them so blind that such thought may have never even occurred in their minds. Same was the case with Tunisian tyrant ex-President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali. He held the office from 7th November, 1987, until he was forced to step down and flee the country on 14 January, 2011. He oppressed the Tunisians for a period of 23 years. He could have never imagined that he will have to run away from the very country he ruled for 23 years.

Egypt is also facing the much stronger and violent rising against the most corrupt ruler Hosni Mubarek. He has oppressed not only Egyptian Muslims but has helped Israel to carry on their monstrous atrocities on innocent Palestinians. He is one of the many slaves appointed in Muslim lands by the west. He has oppressed Egyptians for 30 years. After the revolt in Tunisia, Egyptians have stood up to topple the oppressor. Hosni Mubarek made desperate move by dismissing everyone in the government except himself. This made more people come on the roads. Now Hosni Mubarek is using brutal tactics to save his regime. America has fully supported Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali and Hosni Mubarek. Bidens recent remarks for the oppressor Hosni Mubarek is

"Look, Mubarak has been an ally of ours in a number of things," Biden told PBS Newshour, "and he's been very responsible on, relative to geopolitical interests in the region: Middle East peace efforts, the actions Egypt has taken relative to normalizing the relationship with Israel." "I would not refer to him as a dictator," he added. The VP was then asked by if Mubarak should step down. "No," he said. (1/27/11)

There is a limit to every thing and these tyrants have crossed their limit. Tunisians and Egyptians have strong will and faith in ALLAH. When they are hit by the soldiers, they recite verses of the Quran that “ALLAH is the best protector”. The uprising has started in other regions of the Muslim world i.e. Yemen, Algeria and Jordon.

Whether the status quo likes it or not, Muslim citizens want change. They are fed up of the lies, deceptions, inflations, joblessness, high prices of food, insecurity and many other factors while the status quo lives a luxurious life. As much as the difference between rich and poor widens, as much the people gets frustrated by the rulers and governments. Seculars and liberals are scared that an Islamic system of governance is replaced with the current westernized and oppressive system that only serves western interests. We should also pray to ALLAH that all this uprising takes a positive turn and there is a beneficial change for the Muslims.
