Alabama senator tries to ban use of Islamic law
A Republican senator from Cottondale has introduced a bill in the Legislature that would ban the use of Islamic law in Alabama courts.
Sen. Gerald Allen can't cite any examples of Muslims trying to have Islamic law recognized in Alabama courts, but he says the bill is designed to protect future generations from erosion of the Constitution.
The president of the Birmingham Islamic Society, Ashfaq Taufique, told The Anniston Star that the bill is an effort to "demonize Islam and Muslims."
