5.0 out of 5 stars A solution to bridge the widening gap between west and Muslim world, 3 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reconciliation: Islam, Democracy and the West (Paperback)
I liked this book because it has a detailed account on the current diplomatic relations of the west with the Muslim world. Benazir Bhutto looks different while reading her views on the role of the west especially US and Britain which according to her has never been fair towards developing world and Muslim countries. She criticizes the west for their double standards over democracy in the world. She held responsible western powers of supporting the dictatorships and tyrannies in Muslim world especially Pakistan. Benazir has also challenged the thesis of clash of civilization by Samuel Huntington and termed it a self serving prophecy which does not correspond to the actual causes of the world crises. She has also criticized the political Islam theorists Syed Abul Ala Maududi of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan and Syed Qutub of Muslim Brotherhood Egypt and held them partially responsible of extremism in Muslim world. Benazir has also given practical solutions to chasm the gap between west and Muslim world especially developing countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Indonesia. In her view poverty and illiteracy breed extremism in society, if rich countries would have used their resources to alleviate poverty and had not supported dictatorship than the world would be a different place. She has also suggested to use the tool of public diplomacy to have the better relation ship between west and Muslim world. This book is worth reading. It focuses on the burning issues of extremism and terrorism faced by the world in 21st century.
