Kansas Governor Signs Law Blocking Shariah

A bill signed into law by Kansas Governor Sam Brownback aims to keep the state courts and government agencies from basing their decisions on foreign legal codes, including Islamic law. A national Muslim group’s spokesman said there would likely be a court challenge.

While the new law takes effect July 1, it doesn’t specifically mention Shariah.  Instead, it says courts, administrative agencies or state tribunals can’t base rulings on any foreign law or legal system that would not grant the parties the same rights guaranteed by state and U.S. constitutions.

Stephen Gele, spokesman for the American Public Policy Alliance, a group supporting the bill said, “This bill should provide protection for Kansas citizens from the application of foreign laws. The bill does not read, in any way, to be discriminatory against any religion.”

Gele said laws similar to Kansas’ new statute have been enacted in Arizona, Louisiana and Tennessee.

Muslim groups had urged Brownback to veto the measure, arguing that it promotes discrimination. Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said a court challenge is likely because supporters of the measure frequently expressed concern about Shariah law.

The obvious problem Muslims have in challenging this law is that it is simply a law that re-enforces both the US Constitution and Kansas state law.

Shariah law has no place in the American society.
