    A governing body is a need of every human society. What kind of government a society decides to form is left up to the people of each society. The only guidance we find from God in that regard is that the decision should be made democratically on the principle of amra-hum shura baynahum.

However, when we insist upon the formation of a khilafa as an injunction in religion, or in many cases cross that boundary to present the formation of a khilafa as the main purpose of the religion, then of course knowingly or unknowingly we become guilty of introducing a new concept into religion.
