Muhammad Abdur-Rahman, with the International Museum of Muslim Coultures, defended Sharia law, saying he hopes to see it enforced in the state.
“It is a moral code that we must follow – strick moral code,” he said.
“We are talking about in a court of law everybody must obey the laws of the land and that is what is inside that Sharia law,” he added. “That you must obey the laws of the land.”
State Sen. Tony Smith, R-Picayune disagreed, considering that state is looking to make the Bible its official state book.
“I’m going to say this is a Christian state, very conservative state, and I don’t see any place for Sharia law here in Mississippi,” he said.
