Public Freedoms in the Islamic State, Hardback Book

Public Freedoms in the Islamic State Hardback

Part of the World Thought in Translation series


Rached Ghannouchi has long been known as a reformist or moderate Islamist thinker.

In Public Freedoms in the Islamic State, he argues that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights--in its broad outlines--meets with wide acceptance among Muslims if their interpretation of Islamic law is correct.

Under his theory of the purposes of Shari'a, justice and human welfare are not exclusive to Islamic governance, and the objectives of Islamic law can be advanced in multiple ways.
