I still find in Quran that taking Riba is haram unless you show me where giving Riba is haram in Quran.
Is poor retiree charging interest or government is taking care of his needs?
Where is the contradiction?
First statement says Quran did not declare paying Riba haram.
Second statement is that poor retiree did not loan money on interest with his free will. He paid mandatory taxes and government is returning him his contributions to make him meet his some needs. How is he accountable for what government did with his tax money? He was abiding by law of the land while paying his mandatory taxes.
