Sharia101 is a project to articulate Muslim American perspectives on Sharia
As of today 49 bills in 26 states are discussing the banning of Sharia. Five states have already banned it. This anti-Sharia freakout has significant implication for religious freedom in America. That is the reason many Jewish and Catholic organizations are opposing such moves. It is also harmful for business. Therefore some chambers of commerce are opposing it as well.
The Anti-Sharia movement has started with misinformation through internet and it continues to use internet as the main resource for their Islamophobic agenda.
Muslim perspectives however are missing on this topic although some people have written excellent articles on it.
Silence is not the answer. Sound Vision is working on developing a web portal to provide Muslim perspectives in this debate. Read more here.
The Great Sharia Freakout
Anti-Sharia demonstrations, attacks on mosques, anti-Sharia bills are all a part of a well orchestrated Islamophobic campaign. Here is what New York Times says about it. Here is what ADL says about the main champion David Yerushalmi. FAIR's Report (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting) pinpoints the other dirty dozen of Islamophobia in the USA. Jewish community is concerned that after Sharia, the Jewish Halacha might be banned.
