Democracy is in the blood of Mussalmans who look upon complete equality of man. I give you an example. Very often when I go to a mosque, my chauffeur stands side by side with me. Mussalmans believe in fraternity, equality and liberty.
(Speech at Kingsawy Hall, London, 14.12.1946.)
There are no people in the world who are more democratic evens in their religion than the Mussalmans.
(Al India Muslim League Session, Lucknow, 1916)
It is my belief that our salvation lies in following the golden rules of conduct set for us by our great law giver the Prophet of Islam (Peace Be Upon Him). Let us lay the foundation of our democracy on the basis of the truly Islamic ideas and principles. Our Almighty has taught us that our decisions in the affairs of the state shall be guided by discussion and consultation.
