In Muslim nations, democracy will eventually prevail
Imam Feisal in the Detroit Free Press
From Tunisia to Pakistan, the Muslim world is in turmoil, as each country struggles to find its own path to an Arab Spring.
Pessimists say that, in the end, all of these countries will end up with some form of authoritarian regime either because Islamic parties cannot accept democracy or out of a fear that these regimes will keep a nation out of the modern world.
But I am an optimist. I believe that eventually the democratic ferment in the Arab world will bring an era of relative democracy, religious tolerance and good governance. And I believe guiding Islamic principles will lead the way.
