Muslim religion is often demonised. In fact I think it’s not really a religion as we know it at all. The reformed version, as seen in Saudi Arabia for instance, seems more like a code of conduct more than anything else. The Shariah laws are just only a notch higher towards formalisation of what we call social norms. Shariah laws are often mixed with Muslim religion, however it’s the laws that transcend the civil and criminal law, fill the gaps between the letter of the law and the spirit of the law and are enforced at home and on the streets.
