i agree with the conclusion but for different reason

Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed

Submitted by james derry (United States), Aug 5, 2009 at 12:49

while i find the reason for opposing adoption of sharia that muslims would then force non-muslims to comply with their practices relevant, my own reason is that adoption of sharia by non-muslim societies deprives muslims of rights granted to everybody else in that society. when indonesia adopted sharia for family courts, it ended all rights for muslim women to divorce abusive husbands and take custody of children. universal suffrage of what we consider basic rights should not be amended or curbed for any reason.
