Yet another flying pig moment…
There is no such thing as just a little bit of sharia, any more than there’s just a little bit of garlic. Outside of it regulating personal devotion and personal ritual, it’s demonstrably anti-human and tyrannical.
Council of Europe warns Britain sharia law conflicts with universal human rights and says it is ‘greatly concerned’ by its recognition in the UK
- Resolution highlighted conflicts between sharia law and universal human rights
- Measure adopted by Council of Europe raises concerns over role of sharia councils in family matters
- Resolution also said Muslim couples getting married in the UK should be legally required to civilly register their union before or during Islamic ceremony
The Council of Europe has named Britain in a resolution highlighting how sharia law conflicts with universal human rights.
A measure adopted by the 47-nation body, which oversees the European Convention on Human Rights, raises concerns about the role of sharia councils in family matters.
It also said it was ‘greatly concerned’ that sharia is applied either officially or unofficially in member states.
According to The Law Society Gazette, the resolution said that in Britain ‘sharia councils attempt to provide a form of alternative dispute resolution, whereby members of the Muslim community, sometimes voluntarily, often under considerable social pressure, accept their religious jurisdiction mainly in marital and Islamic divorce issues, but also in matters relating to inheritance and Islamic commercial contracts.’
The resolution, passed at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, also said Muslim couples getting married in the UK should be legally required to civilly register their union before or during the Islamic ceremony.
