BERAPALAH ANWAR BAYAR UNTUK TERSENARAI NO 32?

Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s many recent visits abroad appears to have paid off – the 62-year-old ranked No. 32 in the inaugural list of top thinkers that mattered most this year in the latest issue of the influential Foreign Policy magazine in the United States.

The Quran-quoting PKR adviser was among only 10 Asians on the list and is cited by the magazine for “challenging the Muslim world to embrace democracy.”

Other prominent Asians include India’s Rajendra Pachauri, ranked No. 5 for championing climate change; China’s central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan (No. 9) who proposed to revamp the world finance system from relying on the US dollar; and Burmese activist Aung San Suu Kyi (No. 26) who was held up as a “living symbol of hope in a dark place” under Myanmar’s military rule.

In its December issue, the magazine published excerpts of its interview with the Malaysian former deputy prime minister, touching on criticism that he is an “opportunistic politician”, his six years in jail and his view promoting religious tolerance.

“You can’t just erase a period of imperialism and colonialism. You can’t erase the fault lines, the bad policies, the failed policies, the war in Iraq, and support for dictators. That, to me, is the reality,” the magazine quoted Anwar in response to a question on Muslim nations and the West.

“But what is the problem? When you … apportion the blame only to the West or the United States. They want to deflect from the issue of repression, endemic corruption, and destruction of the institutions of governance,” Anwar added.

The top three thinkers in the world, according to Foreign Policy are, in order: Ben Bernanke, US Federal Reserve chief “for staving off a new Great Depression”; US president Barack Obama “for reimagining America’s role in the world”; and political scientist Zahra Rahnavard for spearheading “Iran’s Green Revolution” against the incumbent Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who controversially won a second term in the presidential elections earlier this year.
