In Response To: Islam and Democracy are not compatible (M.Iqbal Khan,Illinois,USA)

Mohamed Imarah, the prominent Egyptian Islamist, gives a hand of support to pro-democratic voices within Islamism by saying that the Islamic concept of shura does not differ from democracy in its experiences, institutions and mechanisms. But the fundamental difference between them, he says, is that the democratic notion of freedom is absolute, while shura curtails these freedoms on the basis of the primacy of Allah's rights over those of human beings (ibid page 105).
