Quote from Wan Saiful Wan Jan, Director General, Malaysia Think Tank London

“Debates about the notion of an Islamic State are taking place everywhere ….  At first, I became convinced that the jihad to create an Islamic State is an obligation on all Muslims. While holding on to that belief, I started asking what an Islamic State actually meant. With all the emphasis on wala’ (obedience) in contemporary Islamic movements, I then went on to question how can we ensure an Islamic State does not become just another authoritarian state. This text by Abdelwahab El-Affendi provided answers to many of the questions I have been asking myself.”

  1. I participated in your discourse in Kuala Lumpur. The discourse held were very encouraging despites the lack of attendees. I was very impressed with one Dr Zulkefly Ahmad. There should be more debates with strong characters as panel. However, one panel – Malik Imtiaz seem to propagate something else by narrowing his arguments into limitations suppressed by constitutional decree.
