People’s revolution

Recent years have witnessed unprecedented revolutions by people for the ouster of monarch and coup. The strength of the people is shown once again. The winds of people’s revolution that started off from Tunisia has been spreading to Egypt, Yemen, Libya and India.  No ruler can withstand the agitation of the people and at the end they have to yield to the unity and strength of the people and this is the lesson that the people’s revolution giving to the entire world.
President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali had been ruling Tunisia since 1987 with an iron fist. People’s revolution in Tunisia began in December 2010 and resulted in the ousting of longtime President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in January 2011.

The 2011 Egyptian revolution took place following a popular uprising against Hosni Mubarak that began on Tuesday, 25 January 2011 and he was ousted after 18 days of demonstrations. Following the assassination of President Sadat in October 1981 by a Jihad cell in the military led by Lieutenant Khalid Islambouli, Hosni Mubarak became the fourth President of Egypt was the longest serving President of Egypt, his term lasted for 29 years.

The 2011 Libyan civil war was an armed conflict in the North African state of Libya, fought between forces loyal to Colonel Muammar Gaddafi and those seeking to oust his government. The war was preceded by protests in Benghazi beginning on 15 February 2011. The 41 years of Muammar Gaddafi remained at large until 20 October 2011, when he was captured and killed attempting to escape from Sirte. The National Transitional Council declared the liberation of Libya and the official end of the war on 23 October 2011.

Even the introduction of a strong Lokpal bill for anti-corruption was the aftermath of people’s revolution.

If citizens of the country can come together under one banner with one single goal, definitely they can change the destiny of the nation. People cant be subjugated, suppressed, ill treated, deprived of their rights and curtailed their freedom in a longitudinal period, at the end people will bounce back. The more the people were subjugated the greater would be rebellious activities from them.
