“There are those among Muslims who would like to graft Democracy onto Islam.

They say Islam is good and it is from God – from the East, they say.

And they say Democracy is from the West – and it is good, they say.

And then they say, wouldn’t it be nice if we married them off: Islam and Democracy together; Islam from the East and Democracy from the West.

What these Muslims – many of them good Muslims – don’t realize is that Islam is about People and their freedom and Democracy also is about People and their freedom.

That means both Islam and Democracy are Islam – together and inseparable.

And that which is about People and their rights is from God, no matter by what name you call it.

It is Islam.

Therefore, Muslims don’t need to marry one to the other. All they need to do is to understand their Islam properly and practice it fully.

For, that is Democracy.

And that is also Islam.” (Dr. Pasha)
