NC Muslims hope Gov. Pat McCrory vetoes anti-Shariah bill
by Omar Sacirbey
North Carolina Muslims hope they can persuade Gov. Pat McCrory, a Republican, to veto a bill that prohibits state judges from considering "foreign law."
"It's going to be tough," said Rose Hamid of Charlotte. "But I do believe there is a chance."
Muslims across the state oppose the bill they think is motivated by intolerance and may potentially infringe on other religious groups. Bills against judicial consideration of "foreign laws" are believed to really be opposing Shariah, or Islamic law.
