Amherst talk seeks to address the myths and truth of Sharia law
by Diane Lederman
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain fears that Sharia law could permeate the U.S Court system "if we allow it."
In Oklahoma, the 10th Circuit court is examining the constitutionality of a 2010 law banning Oklahoma courts from citing, or using, Sharia law.
But Sharia law, law based on Islam and its central religious text the Quran, could not be imposed in this country, says Dr. Mohammad Ali Hazratji.
Hazratji is hoping to address some of the "disinformation" he sees out there about the law Wednesday at the South Congregational Church as part of the Hampshire Mosque lecture series "Understanding Islam." The title of the neurologist's talk is "Sharia: Law for living. Facts and fiction." The talk is free and begins at 6:30 p.m.
