I would rather have a secular state, similar to the West, than a religious state where none of the above is practiced. Some people do not know the difference between what is practiced as Islam today and the true Islam of the Quran, so they are against any form of religion in politics.

Your post has beautifully highlighted what Islam teaches and demands of us; the creation a just social and economic system, a socio-political state where human rights/justice comes first.

I would rather have a secular state than a religious one, but why cannot we have one where the above verses of the Quran are not mere words in a “revered book” but basic values and principles enshrined in our constitutions?
