This book compares the Islamic law of armed conflict and the international humanitarian law, before going on to practically apply these findings to the current conflicts in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
The book argues that although the origins and histories of Islamic and international law of armed conflicts are very different both regimes are to a great extent compatible.
The book will explore the details of the Islamic law of armed conflict examining its origins in the Koran, the sunnah, the hadith and views of classical jurists. In doing so Niaz Shah concludes that while the Islamic law of armed conflict certainly does not cover every aspect of current armed conflicts but the primary sources of Islamic law do not put any restrictions on carving out rules to cover modern developments in today’s armed conflicts.
The book will address the present situations in Pakistan and Afghanistan, examining the conduct of hostilities by all parties in the region including the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, the Pakistani and Afghan security forces and the US-led coalition forces and identifying violations of the laws of armed conflicts.
This book will be of interest to students and scholars of international law, Islamic law, international relations, security studies and south east Asian studies.
