    it is amazing that when Muslims are a minority they are supposed to abide to one universal law with the majority who are non-Muslims , even if these laws contradict with the Islamic teachings .

    when there is a non-Muslim minority in an Islamic nation , the

    Muslim majority has to give these people the right to have their own laws different from the rest of the country . we call this double standards .

    Hindus in Malaysia just few weeks ago went on demonstrations demanding to have their own status and their own laws . and just above you say that you doubt that Muslims don't follow the common civil code and that they have to follow the law of land . and the land by the way in India is an Islamic as much it is a Hindu .

    Quran chap: 5

    5:43 How can they make you their judge

    when they have the Torah, containing

    God's judgment; then they turn away

    after that. They do not acknowledge.

    5:44 We have sent down the Torah, in it is

    guidance and a light; the prophets who

    have peacefully surrendered judged with

    it for those who are Jews, as well as the

    Rabbis, and the Priests, for what they

    were entrusted of God's book, and they

    were witness over it. So do not revere

    the people but revere Me; and do not

    purchase with My signs a cheap price.

    Whoever does not judge with what God

    has sent down, then these are the

    ingrates.*

    5:45 We have decreed for them in it that a life

    for a life, and an eye for an eye, and a

    nose for a nose, and an ear for an ear,

    and a tooth for a tooth, and wounds to be

    similar; and whoever remits anything of

    it, then it will cancel sins for him.

    Whoever does not judge by what God

    has sent down, then these are the

    wicked.*

    5:46 We followed their teaching with Jesus

    the son of Mary, authenticating what was

    present with him of the Torah. We gave

    him the Injeel, in it is guidance and light,

    and to authenticate what is present with

    him of the Torah, and a guidance and

    lesson for the righteous.

    5:47 Let the people of the Injeel (christians) judge with

    what God has sent down in it. Whoever

    does not judge by what God has sent

    down, then these are the vile ones.

    5:48 We have sent down to you (muhemmed) the book with

    truth, authenticating what is present of

    the book and superseding it. So judge

    between them by what God has sent

    down, and do not follow their desires

    from what has come to you of the truth.

    For each of you We have made laws, a

    structure. Had God willed, He would

    have made you all one nation, but He

    tests you with what He has given you, so

    advance the good deeds. To God you

    will return all of you, and He will inform

    you regarding that in which you

    dispute.*

    5:49 You should rule among them by what

    God has sent down, and do not follow

    their wishes, and beware lest they divert

    you away from some of what God has

    sent down to you. If they turn away, then

    know that God wants to inflict them

    with some of their sins. Indeed, many

    among the people are corrupt.

    5:50 Is it the judgment of the days of

    ignorance that they seek? Who is better

    than God as a judge for a people that

    comprehend?
