“There can only be one set of laws in this country”: UK MP opposes bid for state-sponsored Sharia courts

“There can only be one set of laws in this country”: UK MP opposes bid for state-sponsored Sharia courts

Ever since the UK caved in and allowed sharia courts legal jurisdiction in civil matters, the face of used-to-be-Great Britain has changed remarkably, as sharia courts metasize and dispense Islamic justice 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.’– Islamic specialist Denis MacEoin estimates there are at least 85 working tribunals. –(Joshuapundit)

Recently a Sharia court in Britain told an abused wife 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 the 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.”

  1. “….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,”…”

    Exactly. Otherwise – if muslims were successful in conning the government to accept the primitive practices of ‘sharia’ – then it sets a precedent. People from other beliefs will have as much right as muslims to set up their own systems. We can have buddhist law (mahayana and therevada), Jain , Sikh, Jewish – and even scientologists and raelians can get a look-in.

  2. MMM… As one of around 65,000 people in Australia who listed their religion as Jedi, l think the Australian Government should allow a Jedi Council to be formed.

    Imagine a legal system parallel to the Australian Legal System that was able to make decision based on the beliefs of make believe characters such as Yoda, Mace Windu, Obi Wan Kenobi etc… Oh wait, maybe l’m plagiarising Sharia Law here??

  3. I emphatically say “NO!” to your proposed JE(ha)DI Council!

    😉

    As for sharia “law” (crime) courts:

    Allowing foreign (sharia “law”) courts to exist in your country is to enable those foreign governments to govern in your country; it’s obviously TREASON.

    Islam’s Sharia is either compatable with our Western, morality-based law (in which case it is superfluous) or it is not (in which case it is illegal).

  4. The worlds’ justice was organized around the British. This other law invading the land needs a Vaccine.
