Democracy, Justice, Fundamentalism and Religious Intellectualism
Q. Let’s start the discussion with the [June 2005] presidential elections if you don’t mind. The outcome can be linked on two counts to issues of interest to you: one is the question of justice, since some people believe that the government that emerged from the elections is a product of the people’s thirst for justice, regardless of whether the elections were sound or not; the other relates to that reading of religion which is based on emotions. Of course, we don’t intend to focus the discussion on political debates.
