Arab Spring and Democracy

In this week lecture session, we studied about the “Arab Spring and Democracy”. My lecturer showed us 4 TED videos that are related to this topic. The first video was delivered by Dalia Mogahed, she mention a few important key points which are Arab view on religion & politics, economic injustice/ignore the real revolution and also women were asked for justice mostly in Egypt. She also mentions some good facts about Egypt and democracy. Then, second talk was delivered by Wael Ghonim and the title is “Inside the Egyptian Revolution”.

He was mention about the achievement of the great regime, physiological barrier of contemporaneity of Arab regimes. The third speaker was delivered by Wadah Khanfar, the title is “A historical moment in the Arab world”. Thus, last video is “Why Libya’s Revolution didn’t work and what might?” that was delivered by Zahra Lagh. Finally, we also got a surprise from him because he showed to us a very nice and funny video at last.

In this class, we studied again and more detail about United Nations and we also have an honourable guest which is Imam Faisal that were talking about the religion in general. I also got nice quotes from him which is “Learn how to learn” and “The reason why we are created is to be tested”. His key points which are Islam is not a speaker and we need to understand what we mean by our term. Hence, he asked a question, “It is true prophet Muhammad is perfect in a human being?”.
