Sharia law being used in Germany in Muslims' domestic disputes
A leading law professor has contradicted Chancellor Angela Merkel's statement that Sharia law was not practiced in Germany, saying a variety of Sharia-based rulings were being made all the time.
"We have been practising Islamic law for years, and that is a good thing," Hilmar Krüger, professor for foreign private law at Cologne University, told Der Spiegel magazine.
Family and inheritance rulings were often made according to Sharia law, he said, listing a range of examples.
