How Sharia law is implemented across the world
One of the fallacies the regressive left always love to fall back on when the subject turns to Islam is, "what about all the moderate muslim countries?". Channel 7 TV host Andrew O'Keefe loves to point to our neighbour to the north Indonesia as a beacon of moderate Islam despite the fact it's Aceh province is now enforcing strict Sharia law, where's the social justice outrage for these men & women being publicly caned in 2017?
Sharia law is the body of Islamic law. The term means "way" or "path"; it is the legal framework within which the public and some private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islam. Many aspects of Sharia law regarding family disputes custody, divorce etc heavily favour men, a woman must also have 4 male witnesses for a judge to believe her of rape allegations. Infidelity & failure to dress moderately will likely see you stoned by a group of angry men, something I never want to see on the streets of Australia.
Yes there are millions of Muslims out there who do not agree with Sharia law but they are not the majority & they are for all good purposes irrelevant. It's basically saying don't worry about Hitler because Albert Einstein was a good German, simply going by worldwide trends it's not the average moderate Muslim who is finding their way into power as their population grows, it's the Islamic fundamentalists who strictly follow Islamic teachings & enforce it's laws.
Pew Research Centre took a worldwide census on the views of Muslims world wide on a wide variety of topics including, support for Sharia law as the law of the land, their views on ISIS, whether suicide bombings are justified & if they are worried about Islamic extremism. The divide between Muslims & Westerners is made apparent with 58% of westerners describing Muslims as fanatical & 66% of Muslims living in Muslim majority countries describing Westerners as selfish, violent & greedy.
In the Aceh province of Indonesia that is home to 5 million residents is now enforcing strict Sharia law upon it's people. Gay sex, gambling, drinking alcohol, men & women who are not married riding on a motorcycle together or getting too close in general are all crimes punishable by public caning. Sharia law was granted to the Aceh province after Indonesia feared a muslim uprising if they did not meet the demands, since Sharia law was accepted by Indonesia in 2001 the laws & severity of punishment has only continued to further oppress it's people, women are now also barred from entertainment venues after 11PM unless they're accompanied by their husband.
The Islamic Republic of Pakistan was founded in 1947 after the British granted India independence & the largely Muslim population claimed its own break away state from the predominantly Hindu Indian population. While Pakistan does have their own formal constitution, laws are not allowed to contradict the Quran, so it's a constitution based on Sharia. Blasphemy against Muhammad in Pakistan is punishable by death & up to 1000 women are killed annually in "honour killings", in 2014 a pregnant woman was stoned to death by her own family out the front of a Pakistani court for marrying a man they did not choose.
The homeland of arguably the worst sect of Islam, Wahhabism, see's the royal Saud family backed by the countries religious leaders who are direct descendants of the founder of Wahhabism, Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahha, rule their kingdom as brutish tyrants. Public beheadings, stonings & amputations are all part of daily life in Saudi Arabia yet they somehow get a seat on the UN Human Rights council, like they have any moral ground to stand on & point their finger at others. Homosexuality, speaking against Islam, adultery will all see you served with a death sentence, the majority of these killings are carried out by beheading but, being thrown from the top of the highest tower is a disgusting method reserved solely for the gay community.
A north African country of around 30 million people, Morocco is a strictly Islamic country with their king claiming to be a direct descendant of the prophet Muhammad. With all the typical elements of Sharia law present in other majority Muslim countries also thrives in Morocco, Islam's strong ties to child brides is ever present with Morocco's law actually set out to help those that prey on these young girls, "Article 475 of the Moroccan penal code allows for the “kidnapper” of a minor to marry his victim to escape prosecution, and it has been used to justify a traditional practice of making a rapist marry his victim to preserve the honor of the woman’s family."
Of the 4 countries listed they are all largely different by location, ethnic people & type of ruling government. The only thing these countries seem to have in common is their Islamic faith & disgusting breaches of human rights in the process of enforcing their oppressive, violent religion. There is not one country in the West where beheadings, stonings or any other form of brutal punishment Sharia law calls for would be tolerated, let's make sure multiculturalism doesn't change that.
