TARIQ ALI - baring the truth


baring the truth

None have influenced political writings about Asia and the way they are written than Pakistan born historian-commentator Tariq Ali. He has changed the basics of political writing and taken it to another level. It is thanks to him that the West has started seeing events in a perspective that their government and media don’t allow. So, instead of seeing the Israel-Palestinian conflict as war of civilization, a large section of population in the West now perceives it as a nationalist movement. Voices and murmurs about infringement of human rights in the occupied territory can now be heard, which were taboo ten years ago.

It is he who had the courage to talk about fallout of terrorism in Kashmir, when most of the western world saw it as a separatist movement and called dreaded terrorists mere militants. He has single handily made the “Asian point of view” relevant in the West. As Asia emerges as an economic and strategic powerhouse, job for Tariq Ali is clearly cut out. Nations like India and China will need to strengthen their soft power in order to have their say in the global arena fearless intellectuals like Tariq Ali will certainly be playing key role.
