Sharia Law in the UK 10 Dec 2008
Launch of “One Law for All” Campaign against Sharia law in Britain

Sharia law conjures up for many people the idea of stonings, public executions and discrimination against women in particular, but for all its images of abuse it has been seen by Muslims for centuries as a civilising influence, bringing order and clarity to all aspects of life.  Muslim tribunal courts already pass Sharia judgements in the UK ranging from divorce and inheritance to nuisance neighbours. Jenni speaks to Maryam Namazie from the One Law For All campaign against Sharia law in Britain and Aina Khan a lawyer who argues that Sharia Law has much to offer.
