Sharia Law? Disgusting?

Writing about web page http://news.scotsman.com/latest.cfm?id=259552006

Sharia law? A whistle stop guide could be written as follows: Dispicable set of religious based rulings from yester-millenia that contradict every tenet of modern society.
Perhaps better descirbed here in the telegraph.

This should NEVER be implemented in Britain. To be honest the very idea of judges being able to hand out amputations or stoning as punishments within our society is disgusting.

No. Simple as that.

I don't care how much the government is currently wishing to appease minority groups, this cannot be allowed. Personally I think anyone who wants this instituted should be shown to their nearest airport as I think they settled in the wrong country…

I find it hard to provide any further 'constructive' criticism on the subject if i'm completely honest. Anybody think that this could be a positive addition to our laws?

  1. I agree that this should never be implemented in Britain, and anyone who thinks it should be has got the wrong country.

    OTOH, I don't know Sharia law, but I'm sure that there is also plenty that is perfectly acceptable (don't murder, don't steal, etc).

    What is worrying is the poll that was taken in the Telegraph, which suggests that 40% of Muslims actually want it implemented in parts of the country.

  2. It's quite simple though – despite being a nominally Christian country we don't follow C10th Christian laws so why should we follow C10th Islamic laws either?

    Those 40% are expressing their opinion but they must know it's an impossible dream.

  3. As a supposed Muslim, I say 'yuck'.
    To Syari'ah law. (As I spell it.)

    I don't think I count as 'UK Muslim' though.

    I don't think I count as 'UK Muslim' though.

    On the contrary I would consider you exactly what a 'UK Muslim' should be – you have your religious beliefs but have integrated them with the values that society at large holds dear in the UK.
