One comment on “EP 102: Reprise Revive: Islamic Statecraft | Round Table Discussion

  1. Ridwa Mar 15, 2018

    Salam great discussion, however I take issue with knocking on Islamic movements without providing real alternatives on the ground. It’s easy to discuss theory at a prestigious university but to have real actions on the ground is a whole different issue. Also in my studies of movements I never learned that the state concept should just be swallowed. Rather in being pragmatic one has to recognize the way the system works and make influence and change with it. This may be similar to how prophet peace be upon him used the system of tribal protection in order to maintain his rights and ability to continue his preaching and efforts.
