Is Sharia Law vs British Law - Which is more moral? Watch

  • View Poll Results: Which is better for an equal, moral justice system?
    British - It is far superior than Sharia, I do not want Sharia at all. It is not good at all. We must continue with British law and shun foreign laws based on religion.

    Sharia - It is superior, more moral. People should be more open minded to the idea. They may even begin voting for it themselves.

    I'm sure most people have misconceptions about Sharia Law as we will probably see from some posts here. Did you know that under Sharia Law citizens are given free water,gas and electricity?
    And if Sharia law was adopted who would be paying for that?

    The way women are using their freedoms is effecting others, thats what I was talking about, and its not even women who are doing it, its mostly the economical pressure that drives women to do these things, most have no choice and there are many surveys, statistics to prove that and I think you may agree that most women who do sell their bodies don't actually want to do it. You misunderstood me with the rape thing. Of course some men will rape but it will be unlikely because A) Women will be covering their bodies in public where men won't be able to lust over their bodies and B) because Shariah has a death penalty for rape which also works as a deterrent and also stops second time offence.

    And to say Islam is oppressive to women is a false fact. The court records of the Islamic state pre 1924 in places like Turkey show that nearly every time a woman when to court against a man, the woman was given favour, in an oppressive society like in medieval Europe a woman wasnt even able to have a dispute with a man. A non-muslim woman and children didnt even need to pay Jiziya tax which is a tax for protection by the state as the state protected women and children for free. The first university that the world ever saw was established by a woman in the Islamic state, something if done in medieval Europe would have been called witchcraft. A woman in Islam doesnt even need to pay for her lipstick, its the duty of the state if the womans male relatives ordering from husband, father, uncle can not provide. This is how highly Islam treats women.



    I want to know why you disagree with alcohol? And yh fine people can drink alcohol and people did drink alcohol when an islamic state was implemented but the way todays society feels that to have a good time there must be alcohol, thats why its called a social drug which then causes social problems. I am not bringing shariah into, just talking about the free society we live in.



    I support for shariah in the muslim world and what I'm doing here is that my parents migrated here as the situation in our countries is so bad because of the implementation of capitalism, with all the MNCs taking cheap labour and the western govt. supporting them by giving them tax exemptions, I would say get out of our countries and I will get out of yours, .



    In practice would never work? The islamic empire once stretched from Indonesia in the East to Southern Spain in the West. With economical and social success all around. This happened when the rest of Europe was going through the black death, one of the reasons Europe went through the renaissance period was because people started to think of how to beat the islamic empire all because of the ideas that emanate from the shariah law. In practice Capitalism doesn't work, we can see that from the news around us with Greece, NHS, Divorce rates, Rape statistics. The issue of God, I was just giving an example of how communism and shariah are different from the foundation of the systems.



    Thats fine, In a shariah based society it doesn't mean you have to change your beliefs or be killed for it, non-muslims are free to practice their faiths or to hold no faith at all.

    Britain isnt a socialist society its a capitalist society. Socialism leads to communism, I thought you didnt support communism? :confused:
    I also consider myself a foreigner in Britain. Get out of your country ? There are countries which are free from western powers. Go there mate... or go to the 'Muslim lands' and fight for freedom and independence then.

    Yes damn I should have said capitalism !!!

    Anyways I'm done... you are clearly a brainwashed kid. I've been in too many of these arguments. Its the way you people are brought up, and you just won't ever gain common sense.

    Then you say it's the way the westerners are brought up and that's the issue... if people can be so influenced by their surroundings and upbringing - then what does that say about your beliefs in Islam and Shariah? Get a grip of reality.

    I'm done.

    Never shariah law. But I do think the British law needs to get tougher. They need police like in India which batter criminals so hard they'd never commit crime again. Criminals in the UK go to jail for a few months, get let out and then commit crime again. It's like a cycle

    Why should successful people pay tax when others do not? Successful people make the jobs which give the rest of the population money?

    more seriously :

    anything the Government gives you "for free" has to be paid for via the State budget - meaning, by your taxes

    I feel British Law is more moral overall, but it does depend on the perspective you look at it from, I feel that Sharia Law is a bit extreme as you can get your hand cut off for stealing which is rather harsh, of course secularization I feel is a good thing and allows people to think for themselves, this is rather restricted in countries that enforce Sharia Law and so leads to things which may be regarded as immoral in British society but completely normal in their society and vice versa. An example is homophobia (there is a lot of this due to Sharia Law) I feel that it's ridiculous and they should accept that traditional values can no longer be applied to today's society, but that's just my opinion.

    To be fair, those that get the most from the State are getting it for free, their tiny contribution is far, far less than they take from the State.

    Are justice system needs a complete overhaul I personally think it needs to be more like America where they add it up so murder is at least 25 years and if you kill four people you get 4x25 so 100 years it's much better. I know many will disagree and I totally understand but death sentences for murder would save the government a fortune. I have heard it costs £100,000 a year to keep a prisoner in maximum security. That's our money and I personally don't believe murders deserve to live when they have taken away some ones and ruined many more. Anyway that's my view some will agree and some will not I understand either way.
