Council on American-Islamic Relations responds to Florida anti-Shariah bill

Council on American-Islamic Relations responds to Florida anti-Shariah bill

Responding to news that state Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, has filed what one right-wing organization is dubbing an “anti-Shariah” law, Nezar Hamze, executive director of the South Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations , tells The Florida Independent that Hays’ bill could impact believers in all faiths and that its filing shows Hays is “disconnected” from his constituents and Florida’s “real problems.” # According to a state Senate summary , Hays’ law “specifies the public policy of this state in applying the choice of a foreign law, legal code, or system under certain circumstances” and that “certain decisions rendered under such laws, codes, or systems are void.” # Hamze responded to news of Hays’ legislation via email: # I see an impact on all religions regarding marriage contracts, wills, and burial rights
