Allowing sharia law sets dangerous precedent

BY MICHAEL COREN

In a genuinely shocking decision it was announced this week that sharia principles are to become enshrined in the British legal system, with the Law Society of the United Kingdom publishing guidelines for drawing up documents according to Islamic rules. These rules would allow lawyers to, for example, write Islamic wills which will have the power to exclude non-believers and deny women an equal share of an inheritance.

The guidelines state, “The male heirs in most cases receive double the amount inherited by a female heir of the same class. Non-Muslims may not inherit at all, and only Muslim marriages are recognized.” Good old sharia.

In countries where sharia is central, people live in an oppressive, dark society. In countries where sharia exists but is not central, life is still controlled and intolerant. And sharia exists in every Muslim country from one degree to another. In Britain these proposals obviously won’t allow beheadings, beatings and stoning, but it does mean that civil law as we have known it has taken a massive step backwards.
