Just think of portions of the hateful/discriminatory Nuremberg Laws being enshrined in today’s EU system. Frightening.
“A ruling that sharia law should have precedence over the state’s civil law would set an alarming precedent for the Council of Europe’s 47 Member States, including the United Kingdom,” Dieppe wrote on Christian Concern’s website. “By contrast, a ruling that civil law should overrule sharia law would have legal benefit throughout the Council of Europe.”
European Court to Decide if Islamic Sharia Law Can Override a Nation’s Civil Law
Dieppe said an estimated 85 sharia courts operate in the UK.
“The use of Sharia has led to the promotion of parallel societies within the United Kingdom,” he told CBN News in a statement. “Sharia itself has disproportionately (a)ffected women and gives no legal rights to non-Muslims.”
“The United Kingdom has also become the European hub for Islamic finance,” he continued. “Any Grand Chamber ruling promoting the use of Sharia would only further give weight to the growing segregation of the Muslim community in England and its disassociation with democratic and British values.”
The case, Molla Sali v. Greece, deals with a dispute over an inheritance. After her husband died, Sali inherited his entire estate under his will written according to Greek law.
However, two sisters of the husband say sharia law should govern how the inheritance is divvied up because the man was a member of the Muslim community in Thrace, and the mufti should oversee that process. A mufti is a Muslim legal expert in religious law.
