ISLAMIC PRESIDENTIAL SYSTEM

By Kamran Vardag​

The recent article on the proposed Presidential System in Pakistan by Gen. (R) Tariq Khan is a good thought in an excellent direction but with negative ramifications as well.

Muslims have ruled over major parts of the World for centuries. They have their own traditions of the governance system developed from the Quran, Sunnah and practice of the Companions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Similarly, the West Minister form of government has evolved from the British traditions and historical precedents and is foreign to our culture.

The giving of Bayah or the Oath of Allegiance was a tradition of expressing loyalty to the Caliph in the Arabian culture. It was not a just a verbal commitment but a personal contract of honor of following the correct orders of the Caliph and of being willing to take a stand and fight in the support of the State.

Islam favors a ruler with some distinct personal qualities. Among other qualities, he should be Qawwam or a person who is a natural leader of men and is not easily swayed by the opinion of people. He should also be brave. However, in Pakistan, the President has been a mere rubber stamp of the Prime Minister. Gen. ( R ) Tariq Khan has also advocated that the President should be a man of strong heart and courage.

If we look at contemporary World politics, the Russian President Putin exemplifies the sort of strong leader with full control of the country that Islam requires. Another example is President Erdogan of Turkey who is leading his country in a new direction.

Pakistan should have an elected Assembly in which representatives are selected from different parts of the country based on free and fair elections. Political parties should be allowed to function in the country and take part in the elections.

The President should be directly elected from the population.

At the same time the non-muslim minorities should have their own representatives who are elected to the assembly.

National Security Council should exist but it should be under the authority of the President and not vice-versa. There should be a system of checks and balances with the system so that no individual or group dominates the rest of the parts of the government.

The Judiciary should be free from influence and should impart justice in a free and fair manner. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) system should be used in the country to relieve the pressure on the Courts by solving the civil cases.

At the same time an economic union like the European Union (EU) should be created by abolishing the Customs Duties between Muslim countries. I propose that it should be named MAFTA (Multilateral Authority for a Free Trade Association).

An elite MAFTA Self Defense Force like the French Foreign Legion, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards or the Pakistani Commandos should be raised to protect the weaker segments of the Ummah. The Saudi Coalition headed by Gen. (R) Raheel Shareef can be expanded to fulfill this role.

Sher Shah Suri in Indo-Pak history is such a leader who snatched his empire out of the jaws of the Mughals. He was a skilled and extraordinary General. He built the GT Road from Bengal to Kabul. He dug up wells and built Sarais on the side of the road so that travelers could rest and stay there. The trees he planted on GT Road still stand to this day. His Land measurement system and administrative reforms were the basis for the British Land Revenue Department which are followed to this day in Pakistan and India. He crushed the robbers and dacoits who were hindering trade and commerce and making the life of the ordinary citizens difficult. He solved crime by ordering that if the criminals are not caught within a few days then the Chaudhrys from the neighboring villages should be arrested and held and questioned until the criminals are identified and caught.

We need a leader of this caliber to lead the country out of the myriad economic, political and military problems.

Get rid of religion from any political system and you will see night and day difference in a positive way. Pakistan is too corrupt for religion to exist in government affairs.

No point in Pakistans creation if we’re just going to end up as a secular country.
Pakistan was made in the name of Islam and Pakistans existence depends on Islam.
If we remove religion from Pakistan why would our ethnicities be united. Pashtuns their more related to Afghanistan and their same ethnicity is from there. Baloch their more related to Iran than Pakistan and their dams ethnicities is from there. Punjabis are more related to Indian Punjabis than ethnicities of Pakistan.
If there was no Islam uniting Pakistan why would Pashtuns, Baloch and Punjabis stay with Pakistan?
Secularism will destroy Pakistan because we are very very diverse made up of many different ethnicities and cultures. Only thing that unites us is Islam, nothing else!

The time of khilafas, kingdoms, presidential systems etc is past. What Pakistan, India, USA, Russia, Britain etc need is real democracy, the sort which existed in the Libyan Jamahiriya until 2011 and which has been adapted to Venezuela. This thread of mine is a discussion of how that can be done but please read this post from that thread on more on what is democracy and what is not.

You are correct. That should be the objective of any governance system otherwise what is a government for then ? And the government should really be by the people, of the people, for the people. So other than the previously linked thread please read this thread of mine on my proposal for a socio-economic system that realizes what you desire in a governance system. In it, other than the free services you describe, which are a human right, the system manages to eliminate economic classes ( rich, middle, poor ) and allows for every citizen to potentially be able to access every product or service in the society through an evolved money system.

So a progressive political system combined with a progressive socio-economic system where no one needs to struggle to earn the artificial artifact called Money just so that the person lives from month to month never able to realize some potential he or she has.

politics with religion is poison and its proven all over human history . there is no such thing president in islam .


George Washington was probably the first head of state/government or leader of a country to be given the title of the president. As of the time he was elected, nations across the world had leaders who went with the titles like King, Prince, Queen, Emperor, Sultan, Emir, Tsar and Prime Minister. George Washington was the United States President between 1789 and 1797

Shah Wali Ullah has advocated provision of Food, clothing, shelter and Izzat-i-Nafs as being necessary to be provided by the State.
