Islamic World Split on Role of Quran

In the West, the complexity and texture of the Islamic world is commonly misunderstood. Consider recent findings by the Pew Research Center. Their study shows that those who live in Muslim-majority countries have vastly different views on the role of the Quran in national jurisprudence. In Pakistan, 78% of the population believes that laws should strictly follow the teachings of the Quran. The same figure for Indonesia is only 22%. Internationalists may want to dig deeper into these results. Some can use the data to further validate the scope of halal-based opportunities; others may benefit from added insight on niche investment strategies.
