In reply to article,

"and those who avoid greater sins, and adultery and when they are angry they forgive" -()- "And those who answer the Call of their Lord and perform the prayers and who conduct their affairs by mutual consultations and who spend of what We have bestowed on them"

"And by the Mercy of God, you dealt with them Gently. And had you been severe and Harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from about you; so pass over (their faults), and ask forgiveness for them, and consult them in the affairs . Then when you have taken a decision put your trust in God certainly God loves those who put their trust (in Him)"

(Conduct their affairs in mutual consultations), (Consult them in the affairs) this is what God told us to do - DEMOCRACY

If the rulers are not democratic, it does not mean that Islam is not

So what do you say now after I showed you now the clear proof that Islam asks us to be democratic.
