Poll Context: Britain first activists have confronted the biggest operating Sharia Court in London and they claim that around 100 of these illegal courts are operating in the UK. On entering the building, the activists found legal advice posters on the walls and a purpose made “court” in a back room.
According to The Observational,
“These Sharia courts are popping up all over Britain and they are usurping our own legal system we have in this country,” activist and mayoral candidate Paul Golding said in the video. “All of these Sharia courts need to be closed down immediately.”
The activists pointed out a divorce proceedings flowchart posted on the wall of the court, and later a miniature courtroom is shown complete with Islamic law books and a desk for the Muslim judge, known as a qadi, to sit and preside over cases.
“They’re building a state within a state – their own legal system, laws, regulations, and everything,” Golding added. “A lot of people have fought and died [for our country], yet these people come into our country and set up their own legal system.”
“I feel betrayed by Britain. I came here to get away from this and the situation is worse here than in the country I escaped from.” — Muslim woman interviewed for the report.
