The democracy which the Kaafir West promotes/markets/sells in the Muslim countries is a system of Kufr. It has no close or remote connection to Islam. It completely contradicts the rules of Islam whether in the compressive orpartial issues, and in the source from which it came and the basis on which it is established; and in the thoughts and systems it has brought. That is why it is dissuasively forbidden for the Muslims to adopt, apply or call for it. Democracy is a ruling system set down by man in order to be free from the injustice of the rulers and their control/domination of the people in the name of religion. It is a system whose source is man, it has no connection to revelation or religion.
Democracy emanated from the creed of separating religion from life, which is the creed on which the capitalist ideology is established. It is the creed of the vague compromise solution, which was achieved by the struggle between the kings and emperors of Europe and Russia on the one hand, and the philosophers and thinkers on the other. This is because the kings and emperors used religion as a means to exploit the people, oppress them and spill their blood under the claim that they are God’s representatives on earth. They used to use the priests as cover. Consequently, a terrible conflict broke out between them and their peoples. During the struggle the philosophers and thinkers came out. Some of them rejected religion altogether and some of them recognized it, but called for its separation from life and consequently from the state and ruling.
