Australia Under Sharia

Sharia widespread in local community

Thanks to TT:

A LAWYER has revealed he has prepared more than 1000 wills for Australian Muslims using Islamic law, while other lawyers and Muslim leaders say sharia is used informally by most of the Islamic community.

The revelation that the use of sharia law is widespread follows a declaration by Attorney-General Nicola Roxon that there is no place for Islamic law to settle family issues in Australia.

  1. no there is no place for islamic law in australia, either live by our laws or fuck off. any court room official that does recognise sharia law should be automaticly sacked and jailed.

  2. Why is this a surprise! Really!! These people openly flout our laws and there is suprise that they use their own primitive legal systems!!!!

  3. Connect the dots …

    The Canberra-based Bluestar organisation yesterday told a joint parliamentary inquiry into multiculturalism that the members of the Muslim community calling for the recognition of sharia understood they must also respect and follow local laws.

  4. There is only one problem with Muslim inheritance laws. Allah cannot do maths.
    I came across this gem from Ali Sina’s blog.
    There are cases when the total of the shares assigned to the heirs exceeds the patrimony. Take for example the following.
    According to the above verses, if a man dies leaving behind a wife, three daughters and his two parents, 
    His wife’s share of his inheritance is 1/8. (In what ye leave, their share is a fourth, if ye leave no child; but if ye leave a child, they get an eighth)  
    His daughters would receive 2/3 (if only daughters, two or more, their share is two-thirds of the inheritance;)  
    and his parents each will get 1/6 of his inheritance. (For parents, a sixth share of the inheritance to each, if the deceased left children;)
    When you add all these fractions the sum is more than the total of inheritance.
    Daughters 2/3
    Father 1/6

  5. When muslims say their Sharia law is compatible with Western law, that is taquiyya. It is clearly not compatible. It is so clear that when the inquiry states that it is compatible, we notice right away it is taquiyya. If it were only no interest banks that were part of sharia that would be okay but as we see it can include honor killings, child marriage, stoning and other things that have no use in Western society and are archaic and so if they insist on using it there must be deportations. They are primitive and I imagine that tougher immigration laws and better education of the immigrants would be the best answer. Divorces especially must be handled in court, not a sharia system. There is no use for such primitive laws.

  6. Australian law allows people to have wills disposing of their assets as they wish. If someone wishes to adopt sharia principles to do so, that is completely within the law. The practice of Sharia principles is a VERY different matter to Sharia Law. In Australia legal compliance is compulsory, compliance with any alternate set of principles is optional. If Muslims wish to abide by Sharia principles, and it is within Australian law to do so …. fine, BUT, where there is a conflict, Australian law clearly over-rules any religious practices.

  7. Thank you. I needed this clarification. I really find the concepts confusing but your clarification helps me understand it.
