Report by Santanu Ganguly, Jaipur: Introducing an illustrious panel on the Islamic Sharia Law, which included human rights lawyer Sadakat Kadri, Islamic scholar Asghar Ali Engineer, journalist Mary Harper, and author Tom Holland, moderator Reza Aslan recalled a saying that likened the Sharia to water, since ‘it takes the form of any vessel it is poured into.’ 
The discussion began with Sadakat Kadri talking about how he was inspired to write his book, Heaven on Earth: A Journey Through Sharia Law, post 9/11 and 7/7, when none of his friends or his devout father could answer his questions about what the Islamic Sharia Law said about killing and violence. His research revealed that practices justified as sacred over the course of history were extremely diverse. “Etymologically, sharia in Arabic means 'path' or 'direct path towards water', both for survival and metaphorically towards salvation,” he said. “As such, an attack on Sharia could be interpreted as an attack on God, so one must start any debate about Sharia with that understanding. ”
Mary Harper, Africa editor at BBC World Service, spoke about how Mali was a great African success story in terms of democracy until a few months ago, when a coup took over two-thirds of the country. A draconian application of Sharia has been instated, she said. War by the West wasn't a solution, she felt, as the jihadi would simply move on to the next area, since this was a phenomenon that occurred from Nigeria in the west to Somalia and Kenya in the east in Africa. 
Islamic scholar Asghar Ali Engineer emphasised that in the Quran, much was written about women’s rights and men’s duties, concluding that it was “a declaration of equality between men and women in Islam”. He also pointed out that it was men, and not God, who had imposed bans on women entering mosques or leading prayers, joking that “there’s something wrong with men if even in the presence of God, they cannot control their desires”. The panel concluded that there were contradictions in all sacred texts, as well as the cultural contexts those texts were being read in.
