This is the first time I have written about politics because it is not my forte.
Though I majored in political science in my undergraduate studies and found it to be very interesting, for some reason I have always believed it is only “dirty politics” so I stay away.
But, today, I have been thinking of our brothers in Sudan, for whom I have a lot of respect and love.
They are a people of high moral values and all my experiences and friendships with Sudanese people have been very fulfilling.
Though there are very few Sudanese people in Bahrain as compared with others, they are all very well off.
Among them are highly-placed doctors, lawyers, bankers and other professionals and they have all served Bahrain in a very humane and professional way over the years.
This is why I believe that the recent events that took place in the African nation are welcome and a just reward for the highly-educated Sudanese people.
I also feel they have been, over the years, victims of a very corrupt government and a deadly civil war, none of which they deserved.
Now that a civilian government is in place, I feel it is just reward for the common people and a great achievement.
I hope the scourge of civil war and corruption will soon be a thing of the past.
The Sudanese people deserve all that is good since it is a wealthy nation full of resources.
I am sure they will rally around their government and take the country on the path of progress and prosperity.
I believe Sudan’s recent experience is an example to be followed.
It is a lesson for many other nations to follow and shows that if the intentions are noble, the results will be positive for the people and government.
The appointment of a woman as minister of foreign affairs is also very admirable.
Needless to say, the new government has a lot of work and challenges to place the nation on the right path but I am sure these will be met.
It is also noteworthy to mention the support of Gulf and Arab nations for the people of Sudan and their contribution towards its stability.
The offer of political, material and military support has been well-meaning.
Sudan is the most eligible country to receive the necessary support and in recognition of their position.
They have suffered many years of economic sanctions thanks to what happened earlier.
But I am sure that is now in the past.
May God preserve Sudan and bless it with security and stability so that it is soon placed alongside the developed countries.
