Naz Shah: Sharia can co-exist with British law

MPs from the Home Affairs Select Committee start their inquiry into Sharia Councils today after more than 100 Muslim women complained about their treatment under two government probes into Sharia law.

Labour MP Naz Shah told the Today programme that Sharia law is a complementary "code of conduct" but there is only one rule of law, that of the British courts. She shares concerns that Sharia councils can be "run for men".
