Humbolt gives an important place to "the demands of the state" in a
university. Madrasa also are educational institutions where the demands of
the state  (often a theocracy) play a crucial part. Would Humboldt respect
the demands of an Islamic state that follows the Koranic laws? That was
what I was inquiring about?
