It is not permissible
for a Muslim to elect to city councils or any other kind of council
someone who is known to be a communist or to mock the Islamic religion or
to believe in nationalism and regard it as a religion, because by electing
him he is accepting him as his representative and helping him to be in a
position where he could spread evil or cause corruption, and help those
who agree with him and his beliefs. That position may enable him to harm
those who differ from him and deprive them of their rights or some of
them. It is also a way of encouraging him to persist in his false beliefs
and implement them as much as he wants.
