    Saudi women – banned in the country from driving, denied the right to travel without their husband’s consent and required to wear a veil from head to toe – are now to be monitored by a new electronic system that tracks cross-border movement, AFP reported.

    Woman in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to leave the ultraconservative kingdom without the permission of their male ‘guardian,’ or husband, who must give his consent by signing a register known as the ‘yellow sheet’ at the border or airport. Now, husbands will receive a text message to remind them even if they’re traveling outside the country alongside their wife.
    ..

    Sharia police state? Saudi husbands can track wives

    For a people that claims America and the rest of the world is the devil/infidels, they sure don't have a problem joining in on the technology of chipping.

    What a fraud Islam is.

    Sharia is incompatible with human rights or democratic values.

    Indeed, the European Court of Human Rights (2003) stated that sharia, "which faithfully reflects the dogmas and divine rules laid down by religion, is stable and invariable. Principles such as pluralism in the political sphere or the constant evolution of public freedoms have no place in it. The Court notes that... the offending statements, which contain explicit references to the introduction of sharia, are difficult to reconcile with the fundamental principles of democracy, as conceived in the Convention taken as a whole. It is difficult to declare one’s respect for democracy and human rights while at the same time supporting a regime based on sharia, which clearly diverges from Convention values, particularly with regard to its criminal law and criminal procedure, its rules on the legal status of women and the way it intervenes in all spheres of private and public life in accordance with religious precepts."

    Why should muslims care what the western secular European Court of Human Rights has to say about sharia law or any other Islamic issue? :cool:

    Because Muslims want to be accepted for there culture and sharia law in western secular countries. These types of decisions either sheds light on or obfuscates the aforementioned issues.

    Actually, it makes no difference whether the West accepts or rejects muslims adherence to Sharia law.

    It is an integral part of Islam; and that isn't going to change. :cool:
