The Sharia Association of Rights and Reform has called for a million-man protest next Friday against recent calls for having  Supra-constitution principles.

The association is made up of around 100 members from different Islamic groups. including Azhar clerics and Salafi sheikhs.

The commission is against the supra principles idea, saying the proposals go against the public's right to elect whoever will represent them, whether in parliament or in the writing of a constitution. 

It also stated that the Islamic Sharia is the majority choice for Egypt, accusing secularists and liberals of trying to outflank the true preferences of the Egyptian people. 

The commission has proposed a constitution based on Islamic law, prepared by the Islamic research committee in 1978, be discussed publicly with constitution and law experts.

Islamic Law
All you all so Holly Islamist, Sharia law you all claim Egypt been under for years and the majority of the people supports...Does this have anything to do with ISLAM? I beg to differ, if it were Egypt will be cleaner, they would know how to smile, say excuse when needed, the men would respect the old lady on the bus a seat, not allowing the women to carry the load. I could go on and on with all the bad habits and dirty deeds, but instead of talking about people in general regardless of religion all you people run around talking about Islamic law! For heavens sake, cant you people see the distruction, proverty, and dead surrounding Islam? Religion should be very far from politics. they are two different things ...religion...God, politics...devil...that is why any country that combine them is destine to fail, it is happening now and will contiune to happen..
