End Sharia Law in the UK

1 Comment 1st July 2010

To get rid of this ridiculous law.

Sharia (or Islamic) law is based on a combination of sources, including the Quran, the Hadith or Sunna (sayings and actions of Prophet Mohammad), and Islamic jurisprudence and rulings or fatwas issued by scholars.

Sharia law has been implemented in the UK since the early 1980s by Sharia Councils and since 2007 by Muslim Arbitration Tribunals.
The decisions of Sharia and other religious courts are arbitrary and discriminatory, particularly against women and children.

Why does this matter?

I think it's time we grow up & remove these ancient childish laws, they serve no purpose.

For example:

Under Sharia law’s civil code, a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man’s; a woman’s marriage contract is between her male guardian and her husband and a Muslim woman is not permitted to marry a non-Muslim. A man can have four wives and divorce his wife by simple repudiation, whereas a woman must give justifications for requesting a divorce, some of which are extremely difficult to prove. Child custody reverts to the father at a preset age, even if the father is abusive; women who remarry lose custody of their children even if the child has not reached the preset age; and sons are entitled to inherit twice the share of daughters.

This is Great Britain, if Muslim immigrants want to live here then they abide by the laws of the land & not to try & implement their own based on religion.

There is a threat to this country, how long will it be till we start seeing Sharia Law work it's way into the mainstream judicial system?

Time to end it now.

One Response to End Sharia Law in the UK

  1. Deolinda Caldeira says:

    Valuing this idea as good or bad gives it legitimacy. It is just plain wrong. Sharia also says abide by the laws of the country. There is no imperative to bring in these backward and misogynistic ideas and those that insist there is need to show evidence of any benefit to the UK.
