More on the insistent calls to introduce Sharia Law in UK

leave a comment »

I blogged the other day about some more calls to legally introduce Sharia Law in the UK. Islamist Watch has an interesting reflection about it:

The British government already promotes Shari’a finance and awards additional welfare benefits to Muslim men with more than one wife. However, Downing Street quickly distanced itself from Phillips, reiterating that “British law should be based on British values and determined by the British Parliament.”

That politicians on both sides of the aisle have thus far resisted calls to formally sanction Shari’a law for dispute resolution is cause for optimism; that so many prominent figures keep issuing such demands is cause for pessimism.

This is what I call hypocrisy: don’t speak openly about introducing Sharia Law because the citizens can be angry at you, but introduce it nonetheless quietly.
