    Tahniah to the people of Egypt on the success of election of Mohammad Morsi as the President Many criticisms of Muslim Brotherhood are baseless. The Brotherhood has for decades declared itself fully committed to democracy and pluralism. since the 1980s, it has consistently respected democratic norms, To imagine a huge anti-democratic conspiracy among such a diverse group is fantastical. Indeed, more radical Islamists have left the group, either in the past to join underground splinters or more recently any of the numerous Salafi parties. The other Western worry about the Brotherhood is that it would tear up the peace treaty with Israel. But no Muslim nation can afford to ignore the legitimate national liberation struggle of Palestinians for the past 65 years West should be more concerned about Sahfik In fact the he is a greater threat to democracy and Egypt's prosperity. He represents the authoritarianism of Husni Mubaruk which Egyptians fought to escape: Shafik is a pretty dubious character with, to say the least, questionable democratic credentials. The Brotherhood should focus on growth and investment, with concern for social justice and welfare that the people of Egypt aspire . Shafik's platform was clearer - it is the same corruption and crony capitalism which Mubarak offered, and which has put Egypt in dire straits. But of the two candidates the Brotherhood is a better bet for democracy and prosperity in Egypt. The political theory of Islam has to undergo frequent changes to accommodate the empirical reality. It is, therefore, not possible to talk of an 'Islamic State' with a sense of finality. It keeps evolving But no Muslim majority Government can afford to ignore to include the basic civil laws of the Quran in its Constitution. Though the Qur'an does not give much importance to the form of state but it greatly emphasizes the nature of society.
