in response to reader comment: Muslim Countries' Lack of Democracy

Submitted by sajjad (Pakistan), May 12, 2009 at 13:55

there is no denying of the fact that most of the muslim states are lacking in democracy but it does not meant that they are tatally against of democracy, muslim constitute about fifth of the population of the world different muslim countries have different system of governance some of them are moarch some are theocratic and some are democratic as well as .

now, so for as the majority is concerned there is no blanking of the fact that they are unwilling to be democratic, why is it so, lets take a look

before going to see muslim

lets understand the meaning of democracy. democracy means government of the people having law and order along peace and hormony and a good governence , now these elements realy possessed by 21th centruies democraic countries, sorry to say but we hardly found any dermocratic country having the basic elements of democracy , india the greatest democratic country of the world but within india silent discrimination against the muslim minority and no inforcement of Ghandhian principles make it clear that india is lacking the basic elements of democracy , so at this critical condition even namely democratic countries are not real democratic than how can we condemned Muslim for being undemocratic .
