Abstract

Democracy is not an end goal in and of itself. It will be meaningful when it can pave the way to social welfare. Although democratization does not necessarily bring about an improvement in the quality of people’s lives, it is the best way to achieve this goal. Democracy is the most effective way to empower people, to motivate them, to distribute resources. It is useful to eliminate a monopoly of power and economic resources. There is no meaning of democracy in a poor and uneducated society. Thus, social welfare concerns not only economic issues, but also deals with education and culture. The economy is only one aspect of social welfare. It is not very meaningful if economic standards increase, but the people are still ignorant and the culture is not developed. So, religion plays an important role in the education and cultural development of society.
