"Shari'a Beyond the Headlines" is the topic for a workshop presented by The Center for Interfaith Cooperation, Indiana University School of Liberal Arts at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis, and the Muslim Alliance of Indiana.
The workshop, free and open to the public, takes place at the Indiana Interchurch Center, 1100 West 42nd Street, Indianapolis, from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 14 June. For more information and to register, go online.
Over a dozen states have considered or are considering anti-shari’a legislation. What’s all the fuss about? And what is shari’a anyway?
The workshop is an introduction to the shari'a controversy in the United States. Join local scholars, legal experts, and Jewish, Christian, and Muslim community members for a workshop on the shari’a, its meaning to Muslim Hoosiers, and the larger role of religious law in American society.
Funding for this activity was provided by the Council of American Overseas Research Centers through a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York.
