85 sharia courts operating in Britain

This article from the UK Guardian was sent to me by my friend Andrew.


There are as many as 85 sharia courts operating in Britain, according to a new report.

Academic Denis MacEoin, the report’s author, said the existence of the courts practising Islamic law could lead to different legal standards being applied to Muslim and non-Muslim citizens.

He said many of the courts operate out of mosques and their rulings are closed off to non-Muslims.

In previous reports it was claimed there were only five sharia courts in the UK, working in London, Manchester, Bradford, Birmingham and Nuneaton.

…The report states: “Among the rulings … we find some that advise illegal actions and others that transgress human rights standards as they are applied by British courts.”

This is the same UK that has effectively banned the public expression of Christianity, such as asking to pray for someone. Like Evan Sayet says: the modern progressive believes that evil is good, and good is evil. Their aim is to squash everyone down to the same level so that there are no disagreements about who is right and who is wrong.

One thought on “85 sharia courts operating in Britain”

  1. Good post. It’s sad/troubling to see this going on. The linked article was too short and left me wanting so much more.

    I know it said it issues “decrees” on divorce and others – but I can’t imagine it’s binding – are they just getting married in the mosque and also divorced there, hence cutting out the government? American’s that are pushing for English as the legal language of the USA should look at this – it’s a great example of not being able to speak the native language and the abuse and being taken advantage of that are inevitable consequences.
