What Is an Islamist State?

“There is really no such thing as a specifically Islamic or “Pakistani” blueprint for running a modern state. None. Nada. Nothing. There is no there there.

Since no such model exists, we are condemned to hypocritically mouthing meaningless and destructive Paknationalist and Islamist slogans while simultaneously (and almost surreptitiously) trying to operate modern Western constitutional, legal and economic models.”

This quote is from Omar Ali’s commentary on 3quarksdaily.com (“Pakistan and Its Stories”), but it references his longer article on Pragati — link, below).
