An-Na'm Tells Indonesians that Sharia is Incompatible with Democracy

By: Beverly James

An article in the November 2 issue of the American Reporter discusses a visit by Professor Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na'im with Indonesian scholars. An-Naim presented lectures over a two-week period on the possibility of imposition of Islamic law, or sharia, in that country. He said sharia is incompatible with democracy.

Reared in a Sudanese village down the Nile River from Khartoum, An-Na'im earned law degrees from the University of Khartoum, Cambridge and Edinburgh University, and currently teaches human rights law at Emory Law School.
