SECRET talks are under way to bring Islamic sharia law courts to Scotland, The Scotsman has learned.
Qamar Bhatti, director of the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal (MAT), which runs the courts, admitted discussions were taking place with lawyers and Muslim
community groups in Scotland.
The group is believed to be aiming to set up courts in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
In September it emerged that five sharia courts, ruling on civil cases from divorce to domestic violence and financial disputes, had been operating
for more than a year in London, Birmingham, Bradford, Manchester and at MAT headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
Why is this medeival,sexist,bigotted mindset called Shariah law even being considered?
What is wrong with the already existing law of the land?
Why do certain muslims feel the need for special treatment-is it because some are indoctrinated,brainwashed and conditioned from birth with the
delusion they are somehow superior to other human beings?
I think this the first step on a very slippery slide -Shariah law justifies domestic abuse cases being overseen by unobjective,untrained people with
religious agendas and legitmates the concept that muslims are somehow different (and deserving of special privileges) than everybody else.
Its already been documented in television programmes such as Undecover Mosque that the 'Nazification of islam' is a stark reality
-should we realy be encouraging this extremist mindset by allowing all muslims their own special law?
