Does Islamic finance understand what is expected of it?

We are in a fluid state of extremists trying to hijack the religion in the Muslim world and coordinated/lone wolf attacks in high-profile non-Muslim countries of US, UK, Australia, France. As a result, there is a vocal minority anti-shariah and halal-hysteria movement in those countries. Now, it would seem almost trivial to lump financial inclusion in context of the above-mentioned challenges, but disenfranchisement not only affects dignities of people, but is also an important pre-condition recruitment tool for those espousing hate and violence. The time has arrived to marry “compliant liquidity with compliant opportunity” as the status quo is no longer acceptable under the law necessity. The necessity is change to be relevant.
