You have a uk flag and you do not know the value of an antique? A 1920s car would never be driven to work but taken out on a sunny day on the London to Brighton race.You can drive it but you will be slower than everyone, might get in the way of others, you could get into an accident..
Look I'm just an observer here who has lived in Pakistan and abroad and travelled. I don't really have a bias so I am giving you an objective view on a political, NOT a religious point of view.
I don't want to discuss the spiritual aspects because that's a totally different topic and I am not here to offend. I am focussing specifically on the sharia being fit for purpose as a political and governance model. I mean this in no disrespect, even communism led by an empire failed to implement, it lost to democratic capitalism.
Sure if you want to apply the sharia on a personal level go for it but to apply it as a system of governance you are just setting yourself up to lose, over what? Ego?
As Pakistan evolves you are going to see a generation emerging who think very differently, you need to be prepared for that and prepare the country to flexible enough for this. Jinnah knew what we was doing, just stick to his game plan.
Istill do not agree with you as I do not agree with anyone who says Sharia cannot be applied today. The reason it is espoused is because of the ignorance of the muslims and apologists who without any understanding of the Quran or the life of RasoolAllah SAW and its meaning for the believers think we are reverting to an archaic system. And no Sharia is not for personal application but a set of rules to govern muslims in all aspects of their lives. I understand your ppont of view and understand there is no discussion here as your ways are set as are mine. Respect and agree to disagree.
My brother the people do not understand that Munafiqat needs to be brought out into the open only by being honest and knowledgeable. Lack of knowledge is precisely the reason we are where we are today. When you do not know your deen yourself you hand it over to the mullah and put him in a position of commanding you in matters of the deen which are way beyond his understanding and knowledge then you end up in a mess. You cannot see the misguidance till you yourself know your deen.Why would you offer the same people who martyred our children in a school an amnesty. Demented decision by the government!
