Transnational Forms of Islamic Law
Transnational Forms of Islamic Law
We begin this Issue by paying tribute to Dr Amir Ali Majid who assisted in the setting up this journal in 2005, which was then titled as the Journal of Islamic State Practices in International Law. Dr Majid was blind, who sadly passed away in March this year. He was the first blind person to become a Doctor of Civil Law from McGill University (Canada) and second blind person to reach a judicial post in the UK. He also served as a Reader at the Metropolitan University and was a member of the British Higher Education Academy. He sat as a First-tier Immigration Judge in the UK for a number of years. Dr Majid remained a torch bearer for race equality and disability rights throughout his life. In 2003 he received the Sitara-i-Imtiaz (Star of Distinction), the second highest civilian honour in Pakistan. He was also granted the Life Learning Award by the Kashmir and Pakistan Professionals Association on 17 July 2005. His removal from the post as judge was controversial as he was kind in his appeal to immigrants. Dr Majid will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
