MPV Principle THREE

Principle 3

Separation of Religious and State Authorities: We believe that freedom of conscience is not only essential to all human societies but integral to the Qur'anic view of humanity. We believe that secular government is the only way to achieve the Islamic ideal of freedom from compulsion in matters of faith.

Commentary: Since we are only human, we make mistakes and this includes mistakes in interpreting God's will. We should all be free to follow our religion as we believe it, whether it's Islam or any other religion so we need to make government separate from religion to allow this freedom.
