by Moody Adams “Labour last night faced a backlash over claims the Government had quietly sanctioned powers for Sharia judges” reports www.religionnewsblog.com. “The rulings of a network of five Sharia courts are enforceable with the full authority of the judicial system as they are now classed as tribunal hearings under British law.”
In an inheritance dispute in Nuneaton, a Muslim man's estate was spit was between three daughters and two sons with each son receiving twice as much as each daughter - in keeping with sharia law as demanded by the Koran.
In addition to the unequal treatment of women in inheriting property, Sharia law requires cutting off hands and feet, death by stoning or beheading done publicly.
Islam means “submission” and Muslims believe everyone, including non-Muslims must submit to the laws of the Koran. They declare Allah’s laws are superior to all of men’s laws and should replace them.
