The under-performing Muslim world are largely the multiplier effects of a long time Mullah/Moulvi mental disorder that plagued this society. Sir Syed, Allama Iqbal and Quaid-e-Azam were all kuffar as jaundiced eyes saw them. We must therefore ask this question; what is the difference of utility between Mullah based religion and an enlightening Islam in terms of Muslims existence and the existence of all other objects that Allah created around them?
Unfortunately Muslim societies entered the unruly era of weak beliefs. Weak belief is more determined by our wish to believe than by any mental appreciation of evidence. Mullahs and their growing addicted dependencies seldom have intellect to appreciate the enlightening aspects of Islam and Allah's design for mankind. That's a core hindrance that needs to be exterminated in order to exploit potentials of Muslim society.
