Everything goes with a reason, and when we consider the current situation we would notice that we’ve been governed under democracy as well as under the flag of dictatorship but our problems i.e providing the basic needs have not been fulfilled yet. But ironically our leaders still believe that democracy is the only solution, which we have already experienced and have not succeeded by a far margin.
As the actions speak louder than words, it is realistic to explain Khilafat by the actions of the Caliphs of those times. Under the governance of Hazrat Umar RA, He gave every single person a right to ask anything regarding him or his governance. So one day when everyone was provided with one blanket and the Caliph had two blankets, one old lady had bluntly asked the Caliph to provide the reason of this inequality and then Hazrat Umar RA i.e the Caliph answered that one blanket was not enough for him as his legs were exposed and so he had taken his son Abdullah ibn Umar’s blanket who had to sleep without any.
We should know by now which system suits us best.
