Who Need an Islamic State?
No. We don't need an Islamic state
If what we want is only the form not the substance, please don't have an Islamic state.
We live in 'plastic' world, full of slogans.
One leader came and introduce "Bersih, Cekap, Amanah"
After that "Penerapan Nilai-Nilai Islam"
Another guy introduce " Islam Hadhari"
Then " Satu Malaysia, People First, Performance Now!"
We need the substance, not the form.
You can call a city "Bandaraya Islam", but if the town is full with garbage, what the heck?
This is not Islam nor Islamic.
You can call your state, an Islamic state or "Under the Leadership of Scholars" but if the state is full of new HIV/AIDS cases and full of poverty and corruption, then something is really wrong.
We need the SUBSTANCE not FORM or NAME or SLOGAN
