Alabama became the latest state to ban sharia law when voters passed a measure adding an amendment to the state constitution.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said that the motion was “virulently racist” and “outright hostility towards Muslims.” Alabamans apparently didn’t care what they said.
Voters don’t want America to become like a version of the United Kingdom, where roving “sharia patrols” bully people they feel aren’t sufficiently Islamic.
A member of one of these patrols said in a video posted to YouTube, “Ultimately, I want to see every single woman in this country covered from head to toe, I want to see the hand of the thief cut, I want to see adulterers stoned to death.”
These states decided to introduce legislations to ban any kind of Islamic Law.
- Alabama (two bills)
- Florida (two bills)
- Indiana (two bills)
- Mississippi (four bills)
- Missouri (two bills)
- North Carolina
- Oklahoma (seven bills)
- South Carolina (two bills)
- Texas (six bills)
- West Virginia
- Wyoming (two bills)
Any time a state wants to ban Shariah law, Muslim groups — often led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations — cry Islamophobia.
