Egypt Protestors Demand Sharia Law

Ad Feedback

Thousands of Egyptian protestors filled Cairo's Tahrir Square Friday demanding that the strict Islamic law known as Sharia be implemented under the country's new constitution.

Laws under the Sharia code are discriminatory to non-Muslims and Muslim women, and can include honor killings, where family members kill a woman who is accused of dishonoring Islam.

Sharia law also allows for women to be stoned to death for adultery - even if the woman is the victim of rape.

The call for Sharia law in Egypt comes amid controversy over the role of religion in shaping Egypt's future.
