Together it can be done. Sometimes, you speak with brothers, their excuse of not involving in politics is religious, some fear, some they can't be bothered , many God will do it for us. Hence, the bigger blame lies with us all.

Now we can have a secular state, yet religion still plays serious part in a stable democratic country. Why are we in the West? Stability helps every single stakeholder group. Let us stop hiding from reality.
