In today’s radio program “Women and Sharia” host Jean Feraca brought up a couple engaging questions that we’d like to follow-up on here on the blog. Jean introduced the show by saying:
Every year in Muslim countries throughout the world women are reported gang raped, imprisoned, mutilated, stoned to death and otherwise killed in the name of Shari’a, Islamic law. Is this really Shari’a? How can custom be separated from law? Who speaks for Muslim women?
Who speaks for Muslim women?
Let us know what you think. You can leave thoughts in the comments section below. Also, you can listen to our pre-recorded interviews with Amna Buttar and Norhayati Kaprawi. They are posted here on the radio show page for “Women and Sharia.”
The mp3 file for the program will be up shortly as well. Thanks for listening today and I hope to hear from interested Here on Earth listeners as we continue to post about issues of women’s rights and sharia on Inside Islam.
