Evil words from a Pakistani Islamic scholar who has “a strong following online” and was scheduled for a speaking tour across Australia. The good news is that Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai’s Australian tour has now been cancelled following the revelation of his monstrous anti-Semitism. The bad news is that he and other such preachers of hatred and incitement against Jews and other non-Muslims should not be permitted on Western soil at all, but unfortunately they are in our midst.

  • In May, an appeals court in Bamberg recognized the marriage of a 15-year-old Syrian girl to her 21-year-old cousin. The ruling effectively legalized Sharia child marriages in Germany.

Summary: 

Abstract Islam is more than a religion, it encompasses faith, culture, law and the social order. Islam proposes a society of righteousness and justice. Criminal behaviour is not tolerated in the Islamic order of society. Criminal behaviour is breach of God’s sovereignty, hence stiffer penalties are prescribed. This paper examines hudud punishments in Islamic penal system, and agitates for the reformation of Islamic criminal jurisprudence. While it is reasonable to punish offenders, and violators of normative principles, it is the opinion of this paper that punishments that are prescribed in municipal penal code should at least conform to international criminal jurisprudence. 

....

Civil liberties like freedom of thought, conscience and religion, and religious liberties are criminal offenses punishable under Hudud crimes in Islam. Criminal procedure under shariah does not allow cross-examination of witness, or rebuttal testimony by the accused. The rules of evidence in Islamic criminal law exclude all men who lack credibility, and integrity in society (non-adl).  Women and non-Muslims are not allowed to testify. There is no provision for jury trial, or appeals.
