in response to reader comment: Political System in Islam

Assalam. after reading your article i came to understand that you are consolidating the western philosophy. or it may happen that you did this carelessly because of having shortage of knowledge about democracy. for your understanding.

i request that youdont make muslims confused mixing democracy with islam. for your kind consideration , democracy is a ruling system where man lays down his own system. on the other hand, in islam man cannot lay down his own system . system comes from our creator. not from Parliament where men or MP are the law makers. so my sugession to you not to be a part of capitalist conspiracy by mixing demo with Islam.
