You are entering a Shariah controlled zone…
More posters stating ‘You are entering a Shariah controlled zone. Islamic rules enforced’ have been discovered in the east London borough of Tower Hamlets.”
According to the posters, smoking, alcohol, music, drugs, prostitution and porn are forbidden.
The posters come as a Bill in the House of Lords seeks to stop Sharia law taking root as a parallel legal system.
The Arbitration and Mediation Services (Equality) Bill, introduced by Baroness Cox, would make it a crime for Sharia courts to falsely claim legal jurisdiction and applies to all arbitration tribunals.
In a blogpost titled Sharia Law is a code of despair; a code obsessed with women by BHA Distinguished Supporter Maryam Namazie states:
Sharia law should have no place in Britain or anywhere else for that matter because it is fundamentally discriminatory and misogynist at best (as are all religious laws). Just because the Sharia courts in Britain and Europe are dealing primarily (but not exclusively) with implementing Sharia’s civil or family code rather than its penal code, it doesn’t make it any more acceptable.
