I am from ……. In my state, our Muslim governor is basically a tyrant/oppressor and has refused to pay salaries and pension or even carry out any developmental project. Health care has gone from bad to worse. If the strongest opposition party produces a non Muslim candidate in the upcoming election, can we vote for that candidate against our current governor.
Voting is not an Islamic thing as democracy goes against the rule of Allah and defies it. However, scholars say that whenever the vote of Muslims may have impact, we should join and vote to make a difference.
This means that we must vote to the person that would benefit Muslims and Islam most of the two.
If the non Muslim is better and more fair and less corrupt, we should vote for him as the Muslim ruler’s islam would not do us any good if he is not practicing and trustworthy.
