 The Political Ideology of the Shariah
Shariah is not simply an issue of civil laws governing Muslim family life, it is a political ideology andin contemporary times, its main proponent has been the late Maulana Maudoodi. One cannotunderstand the real reason why there is such a demand for Shariah among extremist Muslims, without making the link between the founder of modern Shariah and modern Political Islam,Maulana Maudoodi are some of his quotes:
Call To Jihad

“An independent Islamic State is a prerequisite to enable them to enforce Islamic Lawsand fashion a Muslim’s lives as ordained by God.”
 Jihad In Islam

“If the Muslim Party commands adequate resources it will eliminate un-Islamicgovernments and establish the power of Islamic governments in their stead.”

“Islamic “Jihad” does not recognize their (non-Muslims’) right to administer State-affairsaccording to a system, which in the view of Islam is evil.”
Islamic Law And Constitution

“Islam, speaking from the viewpoint of political philosophy, is the very antithesis of secular Western democracy. It (Political Islam) is a theocracy in the sense that where anexplicit command of God or His Prophet already exists, no Muslim ruler or legislature,or any religious scholar can form an independent judgment, not even all Muslims of the world put together, have any right to make the least alteration to it.

“Zimmis (non-Muslims in an Islamic State) are exempted from military duty. Those whodo not accept the ideology of Islam as their guiding light cannot become the Head of theIslamic State.”

 The system of this (Islamic) government is such that it does not leave much room forman to exercise his own free will.
