Khilafa call tiresome

Reader comment on item: [Finding Moderate Muslims:] Do you believe in modernity?
in response to reader comment: khilafa .. the need of the time

these calls for the return of the Caliph are so tiring. What will change because a man (inevitably) rules some fantasy muslim polity? Will muslims practise our religion better if we have a common ruler? Will this earthly government be perfect?

focus on the here and now. stop these dreams for a past that is gone. I DON'T TRUST THE GROUPS THAT WANT TO RULE IN MY NAME. (oops caps lock, but it seems appropriate to keep). The only people fit to rule are those who don't want to.
