Sir,

I believe in total separation of religion and state, as these institutions mess up enough on their own, so both of them together is a certain death.

That’s what happened with Pakistan on 23 March, 1956, when country was named as “” Islamic Republic of Pakistan” in original constitution. That was the beginning of the end. Today, both Islam and Republic are in perils. Both supporters want to overlap or cancel each other and now, new islamist Taliban declare democrats as Kafirs. ( Soofi Mohd says Quran has 34 ayets against democracy. I am not aware which Quran he refers). Democrates see religion as end of human freedom.

I think talking about Islamic laws in that country is about a few decades early. It will be possible if only education is given to the masses, so that they could understand that religion gives humility and democracy gives prosperity.
