Un Islamic Democracy

Yahoo News reported Maulana Abdul Aziz, the chief cleric of the controversial Lal Masjid, has reportedly said that Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's regime was "un-Islamic", and that it was obligatory for every Muslim to wage jihad against it for rule of law and speedy dispensation of justice.

In a Democratic country you presuade more than half of the people they would rather let you make the rules.
... The cleric also criticised democracy, saying it was a flawed system. "Democracy is nothing, but counting of heads.
But at least they remain connected to their necks. And i agree with Sir Winston Churchill "It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried."
It cannot differentiate between good and bad people, as in this system the vote of a devout Muslim equals the vote of a frail Muslim," he said.
But at least it does not let a small number of "devout Muslims" decide who is a devout Muslim, who is a frail Muslim, and who is an infidel.
On the recent spate in suicide attacks in Pakistan, he said: "Suicide attacks in Pakistan are un-Islamic, but if the government took action against Jamia Hafsa, we would allow our followers to launch suicide attacks against it to save the honour of our female students."
You are the sort of people that will kill a woman to protect her honor; maybe you would allow her to blow up herself for the same reason. You do not understand honor.
