The End of Democracy (Abid Ullah Jan)

 

Following the end of the Cold War in which liberal democracy triumphed over Communism, Francis Fukuyama claimed it was “the end of history.” In this devastating critique of democracy, Abid Ullah Jan (author of ‘A War On Islam?’) claims that far from being the end of history, the unprovoked attack on Iraq, despite massive global opposition and lack of support from a majority of nations in the United Nations, it is in fact “the end of democracy.”

Democracy has failed and it has been used and abused, particularly following 9/11. Democracy has been undermined by a minority ruling elite to curtail civil liberties and mislead the public at home, whilst waging wars of domination abroad. The author argues that since the positive aspects of democracy are part of Islam, thereby undermining the case that Islam is incompatible with democracy, it will be Islam that will ultimately challenge and triumph over liberal democracy as we know it.

Abid Ullah Jan is a political analyst and development specialist. He studied Chemistry and graduated from the University of London with specialization in Environmental Management. Since the late 1980s, he has published many books and articles on political, resources and community development issues. He has written many important works disclosing the forgery of the fake champions of democracy, human rights and justice, the invalidity of their claims and their dark alliances with the most repressive dictators in the world. As a direct victim of a repressive regime, his books include ‘A War On Islam?’, which explores the forces that are running the so-called war on terrorism and the bloody occupations in the name of freedom and democracy.
