The UK endorses Sharia
ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.
The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.
This is nuts. Now there exist two legal systems in the UK. Can we refer to the UK as a civilized country anymore now that some of its people are legally governed by barbaric laws and practices, practices that should be considered utterly alien to European culture?
Under the act, the sharia courts are classified as arbitration tribunals. The rulings of arbitration tribunals are binding in law, provided that both parties in the dispute agree to give it the power to rule on their case.This is fantasy. As if Muslim women are even asked. Thousands of Muslim women are living under constant threat in the UK, fearing their male relatives who might kill their sisters, wives and friends for failing to practice Islam properly. There is no consent when your decision is done under threat.
The whole point of having a justice system is to have justice. Islamic justice, being vehemently anti-women, is a joke. Only western ideals of justice that put the individual ahead of the collective should govern the civilized world.
