UK LAWYERS, HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS LAUNCH ‘SHARIA WATCH’ ORG TO MONITOR UK ISLAMISM
British lawyers have today launched a new organisation called ‘Sharia Watch’ – monitoring the intrusion of Islamic law into British society, what the organisation calls ‘Britain’s Blind Spot’.
The organisation, led by former Labour Party candidate Anne Marie Waters claims that it “seeks to highlight and expose those movements in Britain which advocate and support the advancement of sharia law in British society.
The group, which is working closely with the Lawyers Secular Society, is thought to be a response to the news that Britain’s Law Society is now offering guidance for Sharia law in Britain. Last month Britain’s lawyers’ group, of which membership is mandatory, issued guidance on how to use Sharia law in Wills, Trusts and Estates disputes in England and Wales.
Sharia Watch claims that the treatment of women, freedom of speech, finance, and the marketplace are of great concern where Sharia Law is involved.
One of the organisation’s launch documents provides briefing material on a number of Islamic organisations operating in Britain today, claiming it is seeking “to inform both the British public and our elected representatives of the true beliefs and political philosophy of various ‘mainstream’ Islamic organisations in the UK”.
