'Broad support' for Australian Sharia law
There's broad Muslim community support for aspects of Sharia law being adopted in Australia, a leading spokesman for the religion says.
However, harsh penal aspects of the law, including stoning and chopping off hands, will never work and aren't being called for, Islamic Friendship Association of Australia president Keysar Trad says.
But personal aspects of the law, particularly those involving marriage and inheritance, would be broadly supported and would offer great help to ordinary Australian Muslims, he said.
