ISLAM AND DEMOCRACY INSTITUTION NAME The Muslim world is widely believed to be anti-democracy. This is because countries in the Middle East are believed to antagonize political systems that are considered “Western”. Also the rights and freedoms of the people in the Muslim world as guided by different interpretations of the Quran vary profoundly from that of the rest of the democratic world. Women in Saudi Arabia re not allowed to drive for example and have been banned for many years from attending football matches. Such restrictions are unheard of in the free world. In many Muslim countries such as the United Arab Emirates the system of leadership is monarchial and is devoid of elections. Nonetheless there is significant evidence in that the Islamic religion supports democracy. This article pursues the thesis statement: Islam supports democracy as proven by Islamic concepts including the equality of all men the oneness Immigration leading to loss of culture depends on many factors including negligent parents or lack of cohesion among members of a particular community and cannot be wholly blamed on the society. Also Fukuyama takes the assumption that Europe is entirely non-religious which is not true these countries have strong religious movements including Christianity despite the separation of church and state. Therefore it can be concluded that Islam is indeed supportive of democracy as portrayed by the concepts in the Quran that support equality including tawhid which requires democracy for its achievement. Also modernity is an enemy of Islam by creating the loss of identity that has made many modern Muslims susceptible to radicalization and thus posed a significant threat to Islam.
