2.Dear Shariq: plz read the verse 49/13,and apply the same rule over the internationally demarkated countries,they are free to use any mode or form of government which is most suited to the society for the beterment of their people(the welfare state).It is also at the will of the society what ever they legislate (the state constitution) under the QURANIC VALUES (the divine code of social conduct)

God of the whole universe can not divide humanity in the western concept of Nationalism and their respective  
Governments. His commandments have to be beyond geographical boundaries of countries. These boundaries  
have to be eliminated to make the whole earth, ONE COUNTRY , ONE FAMILY.

4.Dear Momin: You are right,that, "God of the whole universe can not divide humanity in the western concept of Nationalism and their respective Governments. His commandments have to be beyond geographical boundaries of countries" dear brother, for the sake of good governess ,administrative controll and management (to serve the mankind in a better way),while keeping respectable and hormonal attitude among the societies,international demarkation( geographical boundaries) is not forbidden in quran.Assume each countory as a independent home in the global village, each must abide by the divine values, set in the Quran (while legislating the society's laws).

6.Dear Moazzem,  
What I meant to say was the world can be divided in to administrative units. They  
should have one language, same values. same culture. It may look to you "Greek" but the beginning  
has already been made.  
 
It will certainly happen. Computer is revolutionizing the World. You will need divine guidance , free of  
hatred , acceptable to all. Man made religions are dying. New will come up. I can see a new culture  
emerging and no "NARGIS" will weep.  
 
No countries , administrative units , no armies but police , no tanks to kill but tractors to plow fields  
for food.
