UK author James Fergusson advocates sharia law in West
by Chris Merritt
After championing the cause of the Taliban, British author James Fergusson has found another cause: the need for Western legal systems to incorporate at least some of the principles of sharia.
"Properly and correctly applied, sharia has the potential to be extremely humane and flexible in a way that the common law does not," he said.
Fergusson was speaking in Sydney, where he was promoting his most recent book, Taliban, at the Sydney Writers Festival.
