    Abdullahi An-Naim Lecture at LSE Today


    by Shariq on 10th June, 2009 at 6:48 am    

    This is probably not the best day for this event to have fallen due to the tube strike, but I thought I’d let people know anyway. An-Naim, who is originally from Sudan, is a professor of law at Emory University and his books include ‘Towards an Islamic Reformation’ and ‘Islam and the Secular State’ - he is the most persuasive and articulate liberal (politically rather than culturally) Muslim scholar that I’ve come across. I’d encourage all interested to check out his writing.

    The lecture is at 6 in the Shaw Library at LSE and is titled, ‘The Compatibility of Islamic Law and State Law’. A podcast should also be available later for those who can’t make it.

      Islamic Law is backward and dangerous and an insult to women.

      What a waste of time. Everyone knows the laws are not compatible. You don’t have to be a genius to work that one out.

      ^^^ Your a backward waste of time and an insult to the British education system.
