Inside a Shari'ah Court
Documentary by award-winning filmmaker Ruhi Hamid. Some British Muslims want Shari'ah law implemented in the UK. Already practised informally here to resolve Islamic divorce, inheritance and family disputes, it is seen by many in the West as oppressive and brutal, with punishments like stoning and amputations. Ruhi Hamid, a British Muslim, travels to Nigeria to see Shari'ah law in action, and asks whether it could work alongside the UK's existing legal system.
