Well, I didn’t want to believe it. I hoped that I was wrong. But I wasn’t and it did not even take 8 months… Britain has now adopted Islamic Sharia into it’s court system for Muslim cases! This is a very sad time for Great Britain. It’s so sad that I don’t even want to call them “Great” anymore. Please pray for this situation and pray that things do not get taken too far with this for the sake of all those who live in Britain and don’t want to be under Sharia law themselves.
Here is an excerpt from the news article I linked to above:
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.
Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through county courts or the country’s High Court, a part of its Supreme Court system.
Previously, the rulings of sharia courts in Britain could not be enforced, and depended on voluntary compliance among Muslims.
Politicians and church leaders expressed concerns that this could mark the beginnings of a â€œparallel legal systemâ€ based on sharia for some British Muslims.
Dominic Grieve, the shadow home secretary, said: â€œIf it is true that these tribunals are passing binding decisions in the areas of family and criminal law, I would like to know which courts are enforcing them because I would consider such action unlawful. British law is absolute and must remain so.â€
