What is the Islamic republic? Can traditional Islamic laws be reconciled with the demands of economic development? How reactionary or progressive socially would such a state be? And overall, how potent is the appeal of reviving Islam? This interview has been joined by Prof. Aziz from Malaysia, Professor Anwar Abdel Malek from Paris, Dr. Majid Tehranian from Oxford, and Dr. Haleem from London. What is the Islamic revival? The four learned doctors and professors shared their views. Prof. Aziz suggested that it actually depends on how individual look at it. Dr. Haleem commented that there was no other religion able to progress in the Middle East besides Islam. The Middle East people failed to experience the happiness of westernization but dictatorship. Dr. Tehranian shared his opinion that there is a fundamental impulse that the Middle East people are attempting to go to the purity and justice of pristine Islam and to reconcile the principles and spirit of Islam with the new influences around the world. However, Prof Malek commented that it is difficult to determine the Islamic revival by randomly fixed a date because Islamic revival started much earlier, which was in 1952. How does the Islamic teaching being reconcile with the modernization speed in Malaysia? Is there an alternative banking system besides the western banking system? What is Islamic taxation rules are regulations? How do the Islamic law and the Islamic penalties work? What are the views of the outside world regarding this issue? And what are these learned professors’ views on the status of women in the society in today’s world? There was a short discussion on Ayatollah Khomeini and what are the influences of this Iranian revolution on other societies. The Islamic countries are now working towards re-establishing their Islamic identity. No doubt that Ayatollah Khomeini will be a great inspiration to any movement. It will bring a great upsurge of fervor and the fervor that will strengthen the faith of the Muslim activist and cause a radical change, a change that does not involve only in political, but cultural and religious as well.
