As you may remember I posted a blog with a petition on here about the use of Islamic Sharia law being used in the UK for some matters of ‘minor’ law in the Muslim community.
The petition read as follows: “We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to stop Islamic Sharia Law being used in Great Britain.”
Details of Petition:
“The most senior judge in England and Wales has said that aspects of Islamic sharia law could be used in the UK, provided they don’t conflict with existing laws. I say that Islamic sharia law should not be used in the United Kingdom and the Prime Minister should do everything within his power to stop it being introduced.”
This was the UK Government’s reply:
“Shari’a law is the code of personal religious law governing the conduct of Muslims. It can extend into all aspects of people’s lives – personal, religious, family, civil and criminal.
Shari’a law is not part of the law of England and Wales. The Government does not intend to change this position in relation to the whole or part of the United Kingdom. However, provided an activity prescribed by Shari’a law does not contravene the law of England and Wales, there is nothing to prohibit it. Muslims can, for example, wear traditional dress and follow dietary rules. They are completely free to worship in the way that they want.
There can never be reliance on the fact that an act is permitted under Shari’a law as a justification for committing what is, under the law of England and Wales, a criminal act. Nor, for example, could someone expect a civil court, in reaching a decision on a contractual case under English or Scottish law, to apply the principles of Shari’a law.
Criminal matters, both small and serious, will always be heard in a Crown or Magistrate’s Court in England and Wales, and in Sheriff’s Courts in Scotland. The decisions made in an alternative court will not be recognised.”
That’s it! Is the UK Government so spineless and scared of being called “racist” if it dared to deny some Muslim men a way to legally rob their wives and rob female family members of some of their inheritance money and trap them in abusive relationships? The answer seems to be YES! Thanks to the UK Government’s spinelessness the UK now has a two tire legal system! One that DOES conflict with natural UK laws and freedoms and WILL conflict MORE in the future.
How long will it be before a muslim DEMANDS (under the human rights act) to have his/her case heard in a Sharia court, even when that case involves a NON-MUSLIM in matters that are inside and outside the Sharia court’s jurisdiction? The UK government says it WONT! I say it WILL… eventually! With the Government being spineless, the human rights act and more muslims demanding greater use of Sharia law… it’s only a matter of time.
This isn’t about eating habits, clothing, worshiping or “racism”, it’s about the law of the UK being overridden and the freedoms of people being taken away inside a supposed “democracy”, to please a minority (not all muslims) and keep cowardly politicians in their places.
These Islands have struggled SO hard over the last 1000 years of its history to gain what freedoms we now have! And with the stroke of a pen – to a appease a stone age minority – all that will be eventually undone if this continues? I’m not saying the British justice system is the best in the world, but it’s a lot better than the alternative of a sexist, controlling, stone age religious system.
I feel like my freedoms have just been sold down the river for a hand full of votes and appeasement of people who aren’t worthy of the oxygen they breath!
