UPRISING OF UKRAINE
Ukraine is an European country. It has a population about 45 million. It is situated between Europe and Russia. Ukraine is been pulled from both sides for years. Russia is trying to make Ukraine more Russian for more than 2 centuries. The president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych is a favor of Russia. Therefore he rejected the economic deal with European Union and excepted 15, billion dollars bailout from the Russia.
After seeing that the president sold the country to Russia for money, Ukrainians started protesting. The people of Ukraine want to join European Union and become a part of Europe. Due to the crisis situation in the county the president Viktor Yanukovych ran away from the the country. The new president Arseniy Yatsenyuk, accused Yanukovich’s government on saying that $ 37 billion had disappeared in an unknown direction.Yanukovych, now is under Russia’s protection, hadn’t been heard from since he fled away to Kiev.
Ukraine has put him on an international wanted list and hopes to send him to the International Criminal Court for a trial. Media played an important role in the successful uprising of Ukraine. Alleast they became successful in taking away the presidency from Yanukovych. If the media had not covered the crisis through which Ukraine was going, he would not get support from other countries to fight against there president. Media and also the social media both played an important role in the uprising of the Ukraine.
UPRISING IN SYRIA
The situation in Syria is continuously getting worse. There is a war going between civilians and the government of syria. The president of Syria Bashar-al-Assad is serving the country since the year 2000, when his father Hafeez- al-Assad died. The president Bashar-al-Assad became the president as a result of dictatorship. The people of Syria is highly againt him now, but the people in his party do support him. The public wants an end the the dictatorship now. The are fighting for the rights. As a result of this Syria is is state of a civil war. The neighboring countries Turkey and Saudi Arabia are also supporting the Syrian rebel. Where as Iran, Russia and Lebnan are supporting the government.The people are dying daily due to the war situation between the civilians and government of Syria. The government is also using chemical attacks to kill the opposition. Syrian government ordered the chemical attack and that the assault killed 1,429 people. The intelligence reported that the military had been preparing for the attack for three days prior to the launch. This war began in 2011 and till now as an estimate more than 100,000 people have died in the clashes between President Bashar al-Assad’s government and rebel forces who want him to leave the power.
Civil duty is basically the duty of civilizations towards there country. The definition of civic duty is based on the principle that citizens owe some responsibilities to their government and that government in turn protects its citizens. Civic duties refer to the responsibilities of citizens. The rights that the citizen of a country enjoys also correspond the civil duty of the government towards their people. Every citizen must obey there duties. The most basic examples of civil duties are obeying the law, serving on a jury, paying taxes, and voting.
The citizenship is as a legality for everybody who is a citizen of the nation. Every citizen of a nation is eligible for the benefits provided by the government to its citizens. In return the citizens also have some duties which they should fulfill. In addition to these legal duties the law places obligations on persons by virtue of their citizenship. These obligations are referred to as civic duties and responsibilities. The citizen must therefore, be as fully aware of his civic duties and responsibilities. The public- spirited citizen will always try to strike a balance, and find a proper relationship, between his rights and his duties and responsibilities. It is a simple give and take process.
One should be sure that he or she is maintaining a balance. Not doing anything for the country and seeking to be blessed by the benefits provided by government is not a right thing to do. We should, therefore, be just as concerned with our duties and responsibilities as we are with our rights. It is essential that we try hard to find the proper relationship between rights and duties and responsibilities. I do agree with the statement that there is a thing called civil duty. Everyone does own to fulfill those duties till the extent it is possible for an individual. It plays an important role in the development and progress of a country.
