SHARIAsource Editors and Senior Scholars’ Round Up: Aug 20th

SHARIAsource Early Abbasid Iraq and Iran Editor Nahed Samour moderated a discussion at the Jewish Museum in Berlin on tolerance of criticism in Judaism and Islam. Meanwhile, an op-ed in The Indian Express on the public debate in India over whether sharīʿa councils should be banned referenced SHARIAsource Southeast Asia and Pakistan Editor Jeff Redding’s research on how these councils have balanced religious and state laws. Finally, SHARIAsource Senior Scholar Anver Emon was quoted in The Hill Times suggesting that Saudi Arabia’s dispute with Canada could be a “proxy” for the US’ own disagreement over trade with the Trudeau administration.
