sharp end of sharia

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone
in response to reader comment: To Susan: Incorrect information, why there is Injustice in Pakistan

Submitted by leigh (New Zealand), Jul 6, 2007 at 06:19

Syed – that sharia law is unjust is proven by the injustices caused to women who have been raped. You ignored the point made by Susan. Sharia condemns the lives of women in places like Pakistan who are raped but cant get justice because of the adherence of many Muslims to de facto sharia law, even if a compassionate and just secular law is enacted to not require 4 male witnesses. .
