Ever since the UKÂ caved inÂ and allowed sharia courts legal jurisdiction in civil matters, the face of used-to-be-Great Britain has changed remarkably, asÂ sharia courts metasize and dispense Islamic justiceÂ behind closed doors..
‘Among the rulings we find some that advise illegal actions and others that transgress human rights standards as applied by British courts.’–Â Islamic specialist Denis MacEoin estimates there are at least 85 working tribunals.Â –(Joshuapundit)
Recently a Sharia court in BritainÂ told an abused wifeÂ to stay with her abusive husband and “correct” herself. Britain will see much, much more of that sort of thing (and worse) if Hopkins is not heeded, as he probably won’t be. “Ilkley MP speaks out against Mosques’ Sharia law bid,” from theÂ Wharfedale Observer, April 13:
Keighley and Ilkley MP Kris Hopkins has written to the Justice Secretary stating his opposition to the establishment of Sharia courts.
He was speaking after Bradford Council for Mosques issued a statement calling on the Government to “recognise” the work of Sharia courts, and for them to be “better resourced with an agreed framework”.
However, in his letter to Justice Secretary Chris Grayling, Mr Hopkins said he was “absolutely opposed to any proposal for the establishment of a state-sponsored, alternative judicial process in any part of the United Kingdom”.
“There can only be one set of laws in this country, and we must not countenance the concept of different ethnic groups setting up their own court rooms of convenience,” he said. “As the Cabinet Minister with responsibility for our judicial system, I trust you will use your offices to protect its integrity by rejecting any approaches to recognise or give any credence to Sharia courts which have neither jurisdiction nor legitimacy in this country.”
