An index of unrest in the Arab world

IN THIS week’s print edition we ran a table showing a number of indicators for members of the Arab League. By adding a few more and ascribing different weights to them we have come up with the Shoe-Thrower’s index, which aims to predict where the scent of jasmine may spread next. Some factors are hard to put a number on and are therefore discounted. For instance, dissent is harder in countries with a very repressive secret police (like Libya).

My Comment:

Will such an uprising happen in India?

India does qualify to be there on that index on several criteria. But I doubt a revolution of the Mideast kind will ever happen here.
We are a nation united only by Cricket. and hate Pakistan sentiments.
