Is Islam compatible with democracy?
Learning Goal: I’m working on a political science question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
bou El Fall suggests that the answer to the question “Is Islam compatible with democracy?” depends on the existence of a sufficient number of Muslims willing to commit to the democratic ideal to undertake the type of critical re-appraisal of Islamic theology and law. What does the author mean with this? Do you agree? Why? Why not?
Please cite at least (any) two readings from class.
Please avoid making comments about whether you liked or disliked a source. Taste is socially constructed and tells us more about you than the reading or visual source. Just focus on the argument and examine the reading/visual source in the light of the assigned question for the reading response.
The response should include: 1) A clear argument (this is the answer you give to the question). 2) Examples drawn from the course material that support and illustrate your claims, ideally some quotes but paraphrasing would also work. 3) Proper citation of the examples as reference.
