MCWS, MFS, and other organizations wanting to make the same of Detroit

Reader comment on item: Enforce Islamic Law in Canada?

Submitted by Avi (United States), Dec 2, 2005 at 19:38

The same thing is going on in the Detroit area. There are people who are trying to let the azan (prayer call) be sounded five times a day in public (this has gone to the city council; the council refused). There are organizations, like the Muslim Family Services www.reliefonline.org/mfs, who want Muslim women in troubled marriages to undergo Islamic marriage counseling (which does not give them many rights: husbands can be bigamous, can beat their wives, etc. And inheritance rules are sexist).

And there are people I have experienced, such as a few people I observed in the Muslim Community of Western Suburbs (MCWS) as an AMCWS affiliate (www.geocities.com/anti_mcws) who advocate first letting Shariah be the law for American muslims and for eventually bringing the United States and the world under Islamic rule.
