The Implications of Fiqh al-Aqalliyyat (jurisprudence of minority Muslims) for Non-Muslim Minorities in Muslim Majority States
I presented this paper in the fall of 2009 at a conference on minorities and Islamic law in Kuala Lampur sponsored by the Muslim World League and the International Islamic University. It was my first time in Malaysia, but given the time difference (13 hours), I didn’t get much of an opportunity to see much of Malaysia. In any case, it appears that my paper will be published along with some of the other papers presented at that conference. This amounts to a pleasant surprise.
