Sharia law to be implemented in UK legal system…(UK Is Toast!!)
24 March 2014
Sharia law entered the UK legal system for the first time. In March a new official guide for lawyers was published that allows to formulate a last will in compliance with the standards of Islamic law. It makes possible to exclude non-believers from the last will and testament completely and deny women an equal share of the inheritance.
Sharia law entered the British legal system for the first time. New official guidelines for lawyers were published, allowing the UK lawyers to offer legal services in correspondence with Sharia law.
“Male heirs in most cases receive double the amount inherited by female heirs of the same class. Non-Muslims may not inherit at all, and only Muslim marriages are recognized,” states the document. The children born outside of marriage and the adopted kids will also not be recognized as legitimate heirs.
The guidelines clarifying the issue to the lawyers in England and Wales state that last wills should fit the traditions of Islam, at the same time remaining in effect under the British law. The standard British legal terms should be eliminated or changed; and the last will and testament should include the Muslim profession of faith, compiled by a Muslim cleric. The principles of Sharia law could potentially overrule the British practice in some disputes.
At the present time Sharia law is not included in the British legal system. However, in Islamic societies the network of Sharia tribunals, which are usually based in mosques and resolve disputes between the Muslim families, has grown. They also deal with child custody issues and divorces in accordance with the Islamic religious teaching. Some of these “councils” represent officially recognized arbitration institutions, acting in accordance with the Arbitration Act since 1996. According to the data provided by the Civitas think-tank, there are about 85 Sharia courts operating in Great Britain.
