Local Muslims cautious about new Idaho anti-Shariah bill
by Michael H. O'Donnell
Last week a committee in the Idaho Legislature agreed to introduce a bill designed to keep Shariah law and other foreign codes from becoming part of Idaho court decisions or government policies.
An Idaho State University instructor and a Pocatello doctor, both Muslims, have reservations about such legislation.
The bill was sponsored by Rep. Eric Redman, R-Athol, and it passed the Idaho House Ways and Means Committee on a partisan vote, with the three Democrats on the committee voting not to move the bill forward.
