Yes even if it's unjust

by IRI on

If the unjust law is followed by all the members of the society regardless of their ranks, then it can't be unjust. Every law has flaws and once we all obey the law and respect it then when the better laws come, we will do the same. Otherwise best laws or worse laws mean nothing when no one really cares or follows them. Khatami's idea of civil society, and rightly so.
