Quaid-e-Azam’s Vision of an Islamic State

"In Islam, the ultimate obedience belongs to God alone. The only way to follow His Guidance is the Holy Qur'an. Islam does not preach obedience to a king, parliament, person or any institution.

The Islamic government means Rule of the Qur'an. And how can you establish Rule of the Qur'an without an independent state? In this state, legislation will take place in the boundaries drawn by the Qur'an."

Muhammad Ali Jinnah's interview to the Student Union of Osmania University in Hyderabad, Deccan, 19 August 1941, as reported by Orient Press. Reproduced in Urdu in Roznama (Daily) Inqalab, January 1942.

Also reported in "Husn-e-Kirdaar ka Naqsh-e-Tabinda" by Allama G.A. Pearwez

- Written from memory. Saleena to please check for accuracy.
