sharia survey

Countries surveyed - The Pew Research Center

From the LA Times

Survey: How Muslims see sharia

In Iraq, Afghanistan and many other countries, majorities of Muslims surveyed by the Pew Research Center said that sharia, or Islamic law, should be the official law of the land. Yet in many parts of the world, Muslims who want sharia to be enshrined in law also say that it should only apply to Muslims. The survey included dozens of countries with large Muslim populations.

Summary: divergent views and no surprises for Egpyt.

Weird choice of photo though, at a bombed Mosque no less! (you can see the grief and also blood on the floor)

The FULL REPORT  by the Pew Research Center.

Here's gem from the Executive Summary:

"In many countries, Muslims who pray several times a day are more likely to support making sharia official law than are Muslims who pray less frequently. In Russia, Lebanon, the Palestinian territories and Tunisia, for example, Muslims who pray several times a day are at least 25 percentage points more supportive of enshrining sharia than are less observant Muslims."
