Democracy and the Muslim World

The recent popular uprisings against dictatorships in the Arab world were hailed in the West as the ‘Arab Spring’. However, what came in their wake was not democracy but anarchy. This is because Arabs are unaware of the fact that democracy means acceptance of defeat. Until a losing party accepts its defeat, democracy cannot function. Democracy can be introduced in the Arab world only through a re-engineering of people’s minds.
