Islamic Law Is Adopted By British Legal Chiefs [Sharia Law Formally Incorporated]

Islamic Law Is Adopted By British Legal Chiefs

Solicitors told how to draw up Sharia-style wills penalising widows and non-believers

By John Bingham 22 Mar 2014 Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system for the first time under guidelines for solicitors on drawing up “Sharia compliant” wills. Under ground-breaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether.

The documents, which would be recognised by Britain’s courts, will also prevent children born out of wedlock – and even those who have been adopted – from being counted as legitimate heirs.

Anyone married in a church, or in a civil ceremony, could be excluded from succession under Sharia principles, which recognise only Muslim weddings for inheritance purposes.

Nicholas Fluck, president of The Law Society, said the guidance would promote “good practice” in applying Islamic principles in the British legal system.

Mr. Fluck and I have differing opinions on what constitutes good practices...

American and British armies fought and bled together on the battlefields these past 13 years, against a common enemy - Islam. But our courts, our politicians, and our media betrayed the honored dead, and gave behind the backs of their own people surrendered hearth and home to Evil.

Ditto that. Of course as Winston Churchill has said "that appeasement is like feeding the crocodile, hoping it will eat you last" or roughly that.

Ah yes, Mr. Fluck will temporarily reap some sort of well disguised contemptuous approval from the usual suspects. If ever things come to a pass in distant years, he may avoid an abominable fate. He may be forced to give up his practice. If mercy is shown he will be allowed to clean the toilets of the legal institution where he held sway.

Unless he converts of course.

I just don’t see how this can stand. You can’t have more than one type of law in a nation.

It seems the only person willing to stand up against the muslims is Putin. So sad.

Which makes the present debacle in the Ukraine all the more somewhat convoluted. Sure, what the MSM is telling us about the heavy handed tactics of this man is probably true. Previously, the Islamic terrorist attack on the movie theatre ending in the deaths of many innocent Russians, was a warning to Putin. Everything is not all plain and clear in these situations.

I remember the MSM and the hit job on the Serbs in Kosovo etc. Still searching for the thousands in "mass graves" buried by the Serbs. As time went on it was found that the other side was just as bad in ethnic cleansing. Too late, Islam seems to rule.

Excuse my ramble.

FReepers should be concerned about this issue.

I don’t think the left really believes it will work or last, either. They have simply assembled a collection of people who, for one reason or another, hate western civilization. They have these people trying to chip away at the foundations of the countries they inhabit. Muslims, feminists, and gays are incompatible, but they all labor side by side to destroy western nations. I guess they all think that when it comes crashing down, they’ll be the ones to assume power, so they put their differences aside for now until that day comes.

If Mr. Fluck can even conceive of a day when the Islamists take over England, he likely believes he will be long gone. Now he is probably celebrating a big Saudi deposit into his Swiss bank account.

I don’t understand. I can make the same sort of restrictions in my will for any property not held jointly with Mrs. VanShuyten. If any of my heirs don’t like it, screw’em.

Here’s a darker explanation - gays, women and Muslims are spiritually weaker, and easier for demons to possess or control, period. So they pursue an anti-freedom agenda with stark hypocrisy and rabid rage because they aren’t controlling themselves anymore.

Yeah, not PC. But they are determined to destroy the very thing that protects them, wild with rage, with zero explanation of what they will replace it with except their own, personally run totalitarianism.

Too much consistancy across too many disparate groups for an insanity or stupidity explanation.

I smell demons.

This doesn't mean there's more more than one type of law in the UK. If you read the article carefully, all it means is that the Law Society (the lawyers' professional body) is drafting a standard form of words for wills which have a particular set of provisions. The Law Society doesn't make the law, which is unchanged. You can leave your money how you want. That's the law, and always has been.

The purpose of a will is simply to ensure that your money is left as you want it to be, and is watertight against legal challenge. If muslims want to leave their money in a certain way, fine, let them. The Law Society is simply saying 'if you want to do that, here's a standard form of words which will ensure your wishes stand up in court if challenged.' There are already many such standard forms for more traditionally orthodox wills. The law is unaffected.
