Popular Front of India chairman E. M. Abdul Rahiman expressed solidarity with the popular uprising in Egypt. He also cautioned about its hijack by the agents of neo-colonial and Zionist forces.

The ongoing mass agitations against the dictatorship of Hosni Mubarak are followed by the success of peoples’ power in Tunisia. Anti-government protests are also gaining momentum in Yemen and Jordan. These are winds of inevitable change in the entire Arab-Muslim world. The aspirations of the people for democracy, freedom and justice were being suppressed by the puppets regimes of neo-colonialism in those countries since last many decades. Basic needs and human rights of the masses were denied and any attempt of return to democratic rule was sabotaged by means of repressive measures, all with the open support of U. S. and Israel. Social and political movements based on Islamic aspirations of the people were particularly targeted in Egypt and neighbouring countries. And they were either denied participation in free and fair elections or their electoral victories were treated as new grounds for further oppressions.

The current uprisings in Egypt once again illustrate the dynamism of Islamic value system that is deep rooted in the Muslim society, as an agent of positive change. The dictatorial regimes of the Arab-Muslim world have to take lessons from the developments in Egypt and pave way for restoration of civil and human rights in their respective country.

Now after realising that they are unable to further protect Hosni Mubarak, U.S. feels uncomfortable with the possibility of the emergence of a grass root level government in Egypt. Hence while pretending to be pro-people by disowning Hosni Mubarak, U.S. and Israel prepares their trusted agents like Omar Sulaiman for the imminent take over, with an ulterior motive of keeping away from power Muslim Brotherhood and other democratic forces.

E. M. Abdul Rahiman also urged the Government of India to play a pro-active role for safe return of democracy in Egypt.
