Shariah Law in UK watch

    I know this has been discussed before. But I wanted to know how many people believe that Shariah Law is essential part of Islamic belief
    and a better system of governance than e.g. democracy or capitalism or socialism.

    I was recently reading The Truth about Mohammad (SAW) By Robert Spencer in which he says

    "In 2001, they brought their war against the West to two great
    American cities. Next were Spain and England. In Holland,
    they butchered a filmmaker on the street. Australians got theirs
    in Bali. It's surprising it took them so long to turn to Canada.
    Let's be clear about who we mean by "they." We mean
    Islamists. Not Muslims, but Islamists.
    A Muslim is one who practices Islam, a great religion.
    An Islamist is one for whom Islam is not just a religion, but a political ideology.

    Islamists seek to establish pure Islamic societies governed
    according to the harshest interpretation of Islam. Islamism has
    apocalyptic echoes of another millennial ideology, fascism
    (think of the Thousand Year Reich). Islamism is totalitarian,
    Utopian, violent—and like fascism it is expansionist."


    So what do you think, Is Islam just about five Prayers a day and all that stuff.
    Should Islam not have a say in Polictics. And are Muslims who believe it should, 'Islamists'

    This is a democractic country and any 'laws' which allow people to be killed by rocks being thrown at them is not welcome in this country.

    English common law and democratic system may not be perfect or infallible but at least it is secular. Religious doctrine can be manipulated through interpretation so how can it be standardised.

    The law can be ammended and even scrapped. Is Sharia Law better than what we have got? Better as in effective or less or more moral?

    It might not be moral but it could be effective, more effective than what we have. If it is more effective we should welcome Sharia Law. You have to be pragmatic about it.

    Then be prepared to move out. Sharia Law may be up for consideration if it is effective enough, or if the present secular laws no longer serve their purpose.

    they already do have sharia law courts in the UK, but they only deal with family matters and if either party disagree with the decision they can use the regular judiciary to make another judgement which takes precedence over the ruling from the Sharia court.

    We will never have Sharia criminal and civil law in this country and nor should we. Common law and civil law work just fine - Europe has gotten by on these two systems for donkey's years.

    Gladly. I spent 10 years living in a Muslim country abiding by their laws, I won't do it again.

    So this system works, i think if it came to Sharia law taking precedence the BNP and EDL would see a surge in new members no matter how tolerant they otherwise may be.

    The law is the law. It is entirely up to you if you must latch moral perspectives onto the law. Moral perspectives should not be allowed to subvert the efficiency and the effectiveness of the law.

    It's not gonna happen, the Muslim population is no where near the majority. Without a majority of muslims in this country who all want it, it'll never be adopted here.

    I would join both. Regardless of whatever religion it is, religious laws are all outdated and intolerant. Common sense and humanity should rule over outdated traditions and rules made up millennia ago but a civilisation that didn't have running water let alone the issues we have nowadays.

    Sharia law would only be taken into consideration and accepted when the majority of the population is Muslim, something that will never happen.

    LMAO, there would be a war before sharia criminal law was implemented in the UK. Is anyone seriously deluded enough to believe it will happen?

    BNP and EDL members make up the plebs. If the plebs should rise-up then the government in support of Sharia Law should do all they can to quell such dissent.

    Why do people think that Sharia Law would only be considered if the entire country would turn to Islam? That's just nonsense.

    I 'd vote for a pleb only once to make sure the Act of Parliament that would need to passed (truly unlikely) to allow sharia principles and punishments to become part of the common law structure.

    I hope not, but I can see people like Harriet Harman making its adoption a scary possibility.
