Should all moral codes become law? Excerpt from L.Atkin's speech in Donaghue v Stevenson 1932-
"The liability...is no doubt based upon a general public sentiment of moral wrongdoing...But acts or omissions which any moral code would censure cannot in a practical world be treated so as to give a right to every person injured by them to demand relief. In this way rules of law arise which limit the range of complainants and the extent of their remedy."
What do you think?
For eg- should Islamic rules for modesty become part of law of the state or should they be left out? How should the law position itself vis-a-vis morality?
