The decision to have one Muslim Party to contest the 2014 elections under the banner of AL JAMA-AH has further consolidated the Muslim vote and there is once again a clear electoral mandate that the values policies, programmes and of the Party must be based on the shariah. The opposite view by the Imam of the Claremont Road Mosque Imam Rashied Omar, political commentator Naim Jeennah and other sought off commentators that this position is flawed has been rebuffed to a certain extent at least. Insha Allah one day the shariah will rule. The shariah can benefit all communities and not only Muslims. This can also happen in South Africa.
AL JAMA-AH received more votes than it did in 2009 and it received votes in all 9 provinces in nearly 4000 voting stations. So in future one more vote in each voting station adds 4000 votes. However AL JAMA-AH has not reached the magic figure of 50 000 votes to guarantee it a seat in parliament. The target for the future is 10 more votes in each voting station which is not a pipe dream.
