“I sometimes think: What would it take for Muslims to see the obvious?
What would it take for Muslims to realize that Islam is Democracy and Dictatorship is Haram?
And it makes no difference whether it is a military or civilian dictatorship, or whether it is a hereditary monarchy or kingship of some kind.
They are all Haram in equal measure. And they are all equally antithetical to Islam.
For, they are all various faces of pharaoh and Pharaoh and Islam do not mix.
They are all, in their own way, basically anti-People and therefore essentially and irrevocably anti-Islam and anti-God.
The only government that is allowed by Islam is the one that is instituted – put in place – by the People with their full, free and informed consent.
And that is totally accountable to the People.
That is Islam.” (Dr. Pasha)
