Democracy is a prostitute that everybody seems to be pimping to the best of their advantage in today"s world. The Western Christians blackmail Muslims and Chinese in the name of democracy. USA and UK use their democratic bigotry to attack and persecute Muslims and loot their resources. India is proud of its democracy and uses it to shield its persecution of Kashmiris. Isreal uses its democracy to shield its persecution of Palestinians. In Pakistan, political professional thugs use democracy to keep army out of power and build their families. For example, Pakistan Peoples Party can only have a Bhutto as the next "Democratic King" of Pakistan, even if that means changing your surname. PML-N will only have a crown prince from the Nawaz Sharif family. The truth is that democracy is not a system of government but just an attitude where you accept you responsibilities and respect others rights. Something they call "Haqooq ul Ibad" in Islam. Keeping this criteria in mind I can safely say that China is the biggest democracy in the world, because even in the current bad economic conditions, the Chinese government was able to create 10 million new jobs this year and a dignified life for ten million citizens without having to loot any other nation like Western Christian Thugs. This Chinese success created an opportunity and a chance of a dignified life for millions of families around the globe. Nusrat Bhutto never did anything for democracy, but yes she did everything for Bhutto family. Democracy is not a "cause", democracy is an "attitude".
