in response to reader comment: Our dear mansoor and the absurd

Dhimmi the arrogance continues with your attitude.

Islamic Caliphate was best system. and it was with highly positive command on the system of society. The law and order situation during Caliphate era was example of the strong system which provided justice on every doorstep.

Presently only few Islamic countries are using the punishments of Islamic sharia and most importantly similar to the caliphate era. The results are visible. See Saudia and Iran where strict Islamic Qazi Courts are functional. The ratio is far minimal than what is seen in west. Iran has a very strong shura system.

Though caliphate system was later converted into imperial caliphate which was not in agreement to what is called democracy today, but the Shura, consultation body including the intellectuals was there and existed in true form.

Today the voice of Caliphate revival can be heard among the Muslims. I know whenever Islam revives the power the Caliphate system will prevail in all strengths...
