We want to offer sharia law to Britain

An offer that they couldn’t possibly refuse.

Islamic courts meet every week in the UK to rule on divorces and financial disputes. Clare Dwyer Hogg and Jonathan Wynne-Jones report on demands by senior Muslims that sharia be given legal authority

It is one of dozens of sharia courts - also known as councils – that have been set up in mosques, Islamic centres and even schools across Britain. The number of British Muslims using the courts is increasing.

To many in the West, talk of sharia law conjures up images of the floggings, stonings, amputations and beheadings carried out in hardline Islamic states such as Saudi Arabia and Iran. However, the form practised in Britain is more mundane, focusing mainly on marriage, divorce and financial disputes.

    Dear UK: Don't let them fool you.
    The form of Sharia law now practiced there
    “mundane” focusing mostly on marriages, divorces
    etc. is only a first step.
    Don't allow Sharia Law to overtake your
    British Law!
    And overtake they will, if you give them the foothold.
