Title: Challenging the secular state
Authors: Arskal Salim
Keywords: Challenging
Issue Date: 6-Aug-2015
Abstract: The relationship between religion and law has been a recurring theme in the history of the major monotheistic faiths. Judaism and Islam, in particular, have always considered law inseparable from religion and hold God to be the one and the only legitimate lawmaker. Since the rise of the modern nation-state in the nineteenth century, however, the supremacy of holy laws has been endlessly challenged. There has been a growing debate about whether the law of a state should remain closely related to religion or be wholly detached from it. In many Muslim countries and in the Jewish state of Israel, religious leaders are attempting to realize the former option; that is, to give religious law status as the law of the land.
