THE claim of the ruling party to revamp the system to have a model and modern state based on the key principles that defined the state of Madina more or less stands no chance of taking a concrete shape in the absence of any practical movement in that direction.
Injustice, disparity, class differences and such other things continue to be the main hindrances, and it is hard to imagine an ideal state emerging without removing such malaises. What we can do, however, is to stop making such claims anymore.
