Kenyan court rules against separate Islamic tribunals
Catholic World News - May 25, 2010
A three-judge court in Kenya has ruled against official acceptance of the Islamic system of kadhi court. The kadhi courts, which are intended for use only by Muslims, apply the principles of shari'a law. The Kenyan judges ruled that the application of religious law to civil affairs is inappropriate in a secular country.
