Two Minutes with Dr. Yahya: Future Planning for the Muslim World

Future Planning  for the  Muslim World

Hasan A. Yahya, Profesor of Comparative Sociology

Where the Muslim nations fit between East (China and Russia) and the West (EU and USA)? And how they should handle their identity, as middle Ummah  between two evils so to speak. One wants to dominate land and resources by force and threat, and the other want to be like new woman husband after divorce. What I mean is, if the Muslim world did not initiate the new organization and plan well for the basic three poles  maintained through the new Organization: Unity by strengthening identity, Respect of High Technology ownership, and powerful army, to defend themselves, through their power or outside assistance which will be decided by the new organization.

Then the future of the Muslim World will be bright to delve in a new era of prosperity, harmony, and peace with themselves and other nations as well.  Otherwise, their limited power and loss of identity and dependence on the outside world, they have no choice other than to follow one of them EAST OR WEST. Unfortunately most of them are following the waves of the WEST in recent years.

Reconstruction of Muslim power is needed. Democracy is not a serious need for the Muslim countries, they have no immediate decision power over national resources, they have the power of consuming arms and technology without ability to maintain its services. The leaders have to   look at new and difficult alternatives, to maintain respect and dignity through compromising with their people.

These questions may rise:

How can we ask the Muslim Nations to be powerful, while they are not permitted of self determination of their resources?

Do we need to  revise our history in order to redesign our political systems strategies and tactics to stand as a power between East and West?

And the most question HOW TO REVIVE a civilization controlled the known world fourteen centuries ago? Under the contemporary circumstances, this might be the most difficult condition to change the future by intellectual professional planners.

But, this is a dream, very far from achieving. What we will do?

The matter is not that easy as social scientist might think, unless there was an intention for revival on the long run. An Intellectual Muslim Professional and Technological Council (IMTC) will be assigned or elected to take care of planning the proposed change, where dignity and identity come back to the Muslim World. This council will be formed on logical basis away from nepotism, favoritism, to begin planning changing the future of the Muslim World. I doubt that the concept where Muslim social scientist played with in the last twenty years or so can help in this matter. Their interest dealing with the problems of Muslims should not be affected by Western or Islamic or Eastern directions. Strategies cannot be achieved in short time in terms of its goals. But a serious and radical shake-up of Muslim mentality (through institutions and organization help promoting harmony between the governments and the people) is needed in the core values which may perceived as hate or terror toward others inside or outside their countries.

Muslims need to have strong identity in future world to be more effective and respected worldwide.  Dependency of arms and technology on the west, does not help the Muslim future, what helps is to look at India, Pakistan, Malaysia, and Indonesia’s experiences  after independence, and May be China later and Russia to help creating the Muslim future.

Do I call for joining SCO, well, this is not a matter of emotions, the old saying: my enemies friend is my enemy.  Or vise versa might work, but no respect would be between the cat and the bear. Unless there is harmony between the two. So before thinking of such joint venture, there should be a stage of establishing Identity, finding alternatives to compromise temporarily in the process of the Creation of a NEW Muslim FUTURE.

What distinguishes superpowers may be lies under three principles: Unity (such as NAT, EU, SCO, etc. Organizations), Information technology, and common grounds [Education, politics, culture and wealth). The Muslim world have marched in the last dimension, but unfortunately it still far from initiating UNITY, and Technological Bases of know – how, to make up for the future of powerful Muslim world. The OIC, and similar existed organizations do not work as they are now dominated by familial, nepotism, and favoritism and despotism representatives. Its construction, finance, and decisions are dominated by those who are happy with Muslim situation today and they do not look for a change, because they put reason and logic aside. The OIC have lost its credibility these days, as a leader of the Muslim world, Terrorism was a result of reasonable judgment and traditional leadership. Where the new future have to discard old leadership and initiating new breed of generation proud of  justice, equality, and integrity with his religion and Ummah. Now as I see it, more than half of the OIC Planning members  are divided between the past and the future, but those who live in the past still dominate the OIC. They are sometimes with EAST, individually, or the WEST totally for protection, a little of OIC reasonable members should lead the new future through their reasonable planning, those unfortunately remain in the MIDDLE course, with no power other than their reason.  Such division, does not help planning a fertile future for the Muslims. Three Models may help in the process for initiating such Unity, sophisticated technology, and wealth, the first is Iran and Pakistan in their nuclear power technology, the second is Indonesia, Singapore in their multinational harmony,  and the third is Japan which was defeated after WWII. Three important issues have to be resolved first: Palestinian, Kashmir and Philippine problems. (words)
