Will to change

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?

Submitted by Rajan Samuel (India), Apr 21, 2008 at 13:23

It is said that the only constant in nature is Change. People changed the political equation of the state and Church, It was deemed necessary to seperate the religioud with the political...and of late racial too. The state or government must always be above religion or race.

The change in Islamic nations can come about much quickly then it came about in Christian nations. Exposure to different media and thoughts can hasten the pace of change. It is more likely now, to bring about the democratic revolution in Islam, then it was a 100 years ago.

It is the will to change that is required. To leave the comfort of the familiar and to venture in the unknown requires a great leap. But if individuals can do it and become heros, why can't group of people do that and set the example for the world.

Come, followers of Allah, show the world that you can do it!!
