Shariah http://kcur.org en Midwest Muslims Work To Change Anti-Shariah Movement http://kcur.org/post/midwest-muslims-work-change-anti-shariah-movement <p>In the last year, a movement to limit or outlaw Shariah, or Islamic Law, has been gaining momentum in the U.S. Legislators in more than 20 states, including Kansas and Missouri, have introduced new laws they say are needed to prevent the spread of fundamentalist Islam. And many of the Republican presidential candidates have spoken out in favor of these laws. According to critics, however, these efforts are anti-Muslim, and in the past couple of months, they’ve been working to change the tide in the Shariah debate.</p> Tue, 21 Feb 2012 18:55:25 +0000 Alex Smith 12899 at http://kcur.org Midwest Muslims Work To Change Anti-Shariah Movement
