(Senegal)–Christians are concerned Islamic law may soon be coming to the African country of Senegal. According to the Barnabas Fund, the Islamic Committee for Family Law Reform published a plan recently called “Personal Statute Code for Muslims.” Many Christians in Senegal worry that they may be witnessing the first indications of the creeping growth of Sharia Law, which has been imposed in an increasing number of countries around the world. They also believe that it could limit evangelism even more in Senegal.
