Islam and Feudalism Don’t Mix
[Quote – 45]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


“I have never been able to understand how a society can be loudly Muslim and rigidly feudal, both at the same time. What is equally puzzling is that you don’t hear a squeak about it from any of the Muslim sources that act as if they hold a patent on Islam.” (Dr. Pasha)
