Islamic Statehood and Maqasid al-Shariah in Malaysia:
A Zero-Sum Game?
Beng Phar Kim
An interesting analysis of the discussions about establishing an Islamic state in Malaysia, where the author argues that each party 'tries to out-Islamise' each other with a very feeble grasp as to what shari'ah law is all about. Instead of being a vehicle for punishing and policing Muslims, shari'ah is in fact dynamic and has been and still is subject to constant interpretation. New Paperback 64 pages with a bibliography.
