Who is afraid of Sharia?

Reader comment on item: [Paul H. Robinson:] U Penn Prof for Shari'a

Submitted by Ghulam Muhammed (India), Jul 26, 2004 at 09:28

... Almost 14 centuries work on Sharia is not necessarily inhuman and barbaric. An attempt to modernise the coding and presentation of the essence of Sharia would not deter anyone in evaluating Sharia on its merit. Prof. Robinson's attitude towards the Maldive project is positive and in true spirit of learning and educating. His efforts should be lauded by all enlightened scholars.
