What was but a glimmer of hope for the Muslim community two years ago, has finally come to fruition. Imagine the inroads sharia will make in two decades?
“Sharia law at Muslim college in Nuneaton,” from Coventry Telegraph, September 8:
The head of a Muslim college in Warwickshire which houses the UK’s first official sharia law court has spoke of the advantages of using the ancient system.
Faisal Aqtab Siddiqi said despite misconceptions, the system would work with British law to solve disputes and could “enrich” the current legal system. Mr Siddiqi is head of the Hijaz College Islamic University in Nuneaton – home of the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal (MAT).
The tribunal, formed last year, offers ways for the Muslim community to resolve disputes in accordance with the sacred laws.
