Abstract

The political framework as prescribed by Islam is an internal part of a comprehensive scheme in which each and every aspect of life is channelised between all the socio-economic and political processes of life. The political structure is also characterized with new codes of political behaviour, institutional setup and regime norms. Modern Liberal democracy need not be justified in Islamic terms. A. Kevin Reinhart says that Israeli liberals have drawn from the Bible and Jewish values to argue for a liberal democratic state. So we should be aware and reconsider the concept of Islamic democracy in the light of the Qurʻān and the Sunnah rather than western paradigm.
