Salamu alaikum. Brother, I wanted to know why does the Muslim World in the previous time wanted to fight against Western colonization? In today's modern world, I seldom find any news about the Muslim World trying to fight against Western colonization. Does Western colonialism still exist until now?
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah
Colonization was the fact of Western people occupying and living in Muslim countries. Since that is no longer the case, then there is no longer a focus on fighting colonization. Of course colonization continues in more subtle ways these days, for example the United States considers the Persian gulf countries as its servants and it will likely invade any of these countries that tries to close US military bases in their countries or tries to refuse to sell their oil for US dollars (Iraq, Libya and Iran tried to avoid selling oil for US dollars. The US destroyed Iraq and Libya. And it now wants to destroy Iran).
So colonization these days is more subtle and most people do not understand how being forced to use US dollars for trade is a form of slavery to Washington’s interests. So fighting it is more difficult.
