Urdu Debate: Theocracy versus Democracy?

Suggested reading by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times for promoting secularism in every country of the world

I believe there is a very simple criterion about jurisdiction of human laws.  There should be no laws in the domain of ‘man relation to God.’ This is domain of personal religious freedom.  Legislation is raionally possible only in the domain of ‘man relation to man’ and even here, I believe, there should be no discrimination based on religion, race or gender.

In this debate about theocracy or democracy, we should also benefit from the hundreds of years of debate not only in the Muslim history but other religions as well; especially Europe and USA.  With this historic background the necessity of secularism will become easier for the Muslims.

  1. The only thing wrong with a Theocracy are the Theocrats (Mullahs), whom we cannot trust.
