    There are a handful of Muslim majority districts in the UK and none of them have had Sharia law declared or enforced in them.

    There used to be a Islamic political party but it disbanded because no one voted for them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islamic_Party_of_Britain

    Additoinally, fertility rates are going down for the two largest Muslim groups.
    Their fertility rate is higher than our's.......

    No bother I'm just glad you took it the right way. I couldn't resist saying it.

    I'm sure they're around, I've probably seen a face in a crowd who was a white Muslim but I would never have known.

    I doubt it still will be significantly in 10-20 years looking at that graph.

    And I don't think Sharia Law would be supported by Parliament/Government
    That's the issue - Muslims of a certain political persuasion may one day have enough seats in the House of Commons (and maybe the Lords, if it hasn't been abolished by then) to implement Sharia law or at least give Muslims the right to choose a Sharia court instead of an established one.

    I've always argued with those friends who take an interest in these matters that we need a codified constitution in this country because, at present, as long as you can get a majority in Parliament, you can pass any legislation, no matter how objectionable, without challenge. A constitution would allow Sharia law, if implemented by a majority in Parliament, to be challenged in court and defeated. That is, of course, if the constitution doesn't have some idiotic provision for 'respecting the individual's right to seek justice in a religious court of law.' -_-

    An Islamic-majority UK population means a Islamic-majority will can be enforced on the whole country through a political party representing those who worship Islam (would probably be Labour actually).

    Should the UK adopt policies to ensure the UK never has a Islamic-majority population?

    ps Yes I did mean to duplicate the poll options!
    If the UK did this, how do you think the UK should go about it?

    I guess. I'll extend my question to 'why would you ever want to believe in Islam' then! This coming from someone who has gone from being muslim->agnostic. Not picking on Islam I despise all organised Religion. It's just that Sharia Law is so blatantly barbaric and outdated ( sorry I'm honestly not trying to offend ) and I've never understood why people would ever want to impose this law on themselves.

    Just gonna clarify I'm genuinely interested and not trying to be offensive so sorry if my wording was harsh!

    It's fine.

    I would see why you think Sharia is outdated since you're living in a modern society where certain behaviour is being seen as more acceptable and there is less stigma attached to it. I don't see Sharia as outdated. If Allah wanted to give a more updated set of rules, he would've given us an updated Quran. There is a reason the Quran hasn't changed.

    Why would I ever want to believe in Islam? Why would I ever not?

    I actually grew up in a pretty strict Islamic household! But have you never asked yourself why god would have a problem with Homosexuality for example? Or Adultery? These things you'd think are irrelevant to a being that has created skmething as vast as this Universe singlehandedly and has a neverending life! Also, stoning and amputation are very medieval forms of punishment don't you agree ?

    What is that reason? Please don't say Allah said so give me an actual reason from yourself?

    Because it is an extremely restrictive Religion and I've never felt like any sound proof was given for me to limit my life to that degree!

    Cheers for replying btw

    Unfortunately I'm on my phone. Who is he and what is the context.
    Bosnian Serb leader in the early 1990s. Claimed that Bosnia seceding from Yugoslavia would result in Bosnia sooner or later becoming an Islamic state governed by Sharia law, because ~45% of Bosnia's population was Muslim at the time. When Bosnian seceded, Karadzic and co began carving out their own Serb mini-state, triggering the Bosnian War and all its horrors.
