The price of Democracy

 

What is democracy? It is a control of an organization or a group by the majority of its members. Indeed it is a system of government by the whole people or the eligible ones of the country. It usually happens in elections. Typically, through elected representatives.

Our people are out in the streets for more than four weeks in a peaceful demonstration demanding democracy.  They did not want military rule. They wanted a civilian one. Our people ousted the previous dictator from power and a transitional government was born so that after two years, elections would be held and a civilian government would be elected by the people and see the light.

Two weeks ago, a coup was made and the army wanted the power for itself. Our generals in Sudan want authority for themselves. Many people died and others were wounded. They were wounded in their bodies and in their feelings too. Their mistake was that they wanted to live in a democratic society. 

 Many voices from the world were heard. The African Union, European Union, America, and some other countries called on both military and civilian people to negotiate and reach some sort of a general agreement or consensus.

Prime ministers of both New Zealand and England commented on our peaceful demonstration, even queen Elizabeth admired that performance of the people. Our people are calling for a civilian democratic system, I wonder if they are asking too much.

  •      Democracy……….What a splendor word it is. In every time people always hunger to its taste. And they hardly struggle to gain it, in order to have a promising future to themselves and to their children. Even though, from the depth of their core, they know that, the whole experience left nothing but a bad taste in their mouths, but they do not hesitate to offer their lives to be its dowry.

         In my theory, democracy means; respect others’ opinions, religion, nationalities and characters. Unfortunately, we have a deep lack of its definition. Even between our family members. So, we need to teach our children, not only, how to memorize its identification, but also, how to practice it in reality. So when they grow up, they can make the change in the future.

         Finally my friend, God bless you, your family and your country as well.

  •  May Allah protects our brothers and sisters in Sudan
