  1. Clerics should only deal with religion and stay out of politics and military matters as that is for politicians and military people to deal with.

    • That one perspective. Another perspective that all human matters including, politics,economy and military should be guided by religion and religious leaders. True religious leaders get an insight from God while most politicians are affected by their self-inclination.
