Dr. Najatullah Siddqui is a renowned Islamic economist and winner of the King Faisal International prize for his pioneer work in Islamic banking and finance. His recent write up ‘My Life in Islamic Economics’ explains various obstacles in creating a true Islamic financial system. In his opinion Islamic banking in its current form serves none but the same capitalism that conventional banking serving, but in the guise of Arabic names and nomenclatures of banking intermediation. Some of his passages are perceptive food for thought.
