Hoodbhoy needs to be reminded that Imran is not talking in literal terms. He is an educated person and knows fully well the difference between the living conditions of the two times. Imran is basically interested in a social welfare state based on justice and merit. Details will have to be worked out keeping in view the prevailing circumstances. The Quran also gives guiding principles and the rest depends upon on those in authority.
Hoodbhoy is more inclined towards criticism . He should come out with concrete proposals.
