Government Facilitation of Zakat

A proper Zakat system is a state responsibility. An important one. This is the biggest means of countering wealth inequality and reducing poverty. Capitalism seems to have removed Zakat from state responsibility and it has left it to individuals. If the government as the largest entity in the country doesn’t enforce and facilitate Zakat then the wealthy may not pay it and the poor may not get it. This increases poverty.

At ConceptPaper.org we feel Government Facilitation of Zakat should be solidly implemented. Electronic means of redistribution of money can easily be arranged and it would be easy to implement this given the will.
