The Light of Revolution in Libya



By Mohammad Azeemullah

‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us…’ A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.

Nothing marks as true as the above-mentioned quotes by Charles Dickens about the 5th Anniversary of revolution in Libya.

The 17th February, 2011 revolution brought an end to the era of Colonel Moammar Al-Qaddafi and injected hope in the eyes of millions about better and secured future.

However, the high hopes soon began to translate into despair when varying factions in Libya wronged one another and battled to seize power in the capital.  In the ensuing chaos and conflict, the country tragically witnessed the formation of two governments in ‘one independent country’.

The end result is the disorder and confusion in the affairs of state, thus leading the enigma to the suffering of the common people in the form of high-price rise for every commodity in the market.

The 17th February symbolizes the sacrifice made by millions.  People in general still carry high hopes of success amidst despair. They still look forward to the triumph of Unity Government and anticipate the Light of Revolution will prevail over the Darkness of Despair.

  1. Yes revolutions sometime creates opposite results, In Libya we have seen from our eyes, The force before getting power in hand was totally different then now, people react badly saying our dreams was different before revolution and it’s totally broken down after revolutions.

    Now only suffering by poor people no job,no money, no security at all in entire country. USD become very expensive, Libyan Dinar loose their power, business effect very badly, price of the commodity become more then double, activities for progress stacked badly each and every corner of the country.

    No one knows when the situation will become normal each and every day only HOPE is there that soon country will become normal and all will enjoy that hard work did by almost all side by side.

    Let see and prey to become normal all so next 17 Feb enjoy as dreamed by all.
