Sharia law is not about ”rights and justice” but about submission…
Islamic rules are incompatible with British laws, claims Archbishop of Canterbury
ISLAMIC rules are incompatible with British laws which have developed over 500 years and sharia law should never become part of the British legal system, the Archbishop of Canterbury has declared.
Justin Welby also claimed that British law has “underlying values and assumptions” that come from a clearly Christian tradition.
Archbishop Welby set out his reasons why sharia should not win official status in Britain in his book, called ’Reimagining Britain’.
He said: “Sharia law is not just about punishments.
“It is something of immense sophistication, but it comes from a very different background of jurisprudence to the one from which British law has developed over the past 500 years.”
His comments have come after the release of a Home Office report earlier this month that said all couples marrying in mosques should also have to go through a legally-binding civil marriage ceremony to protect wives from injustices under sharia.
