A reader in Britain just sent us the following message:
There’s a petition in the UK to ban Sharia law. I became aware of this yesterday and splashed it about, injecting it into various ongoing discussions, where unfortunately it will disappear rapidly. You could do a much better job than I, by providing some sort of article with a reminder that the deadline is the 11th of March. Below is what I wrote or injected into some postings, including the link to the petition itself; I believe it’s self-explanatory.
We need to drum up as many signatures as possible. Please, think about it: At 100,000 signatures Sharia will be discussed in the National Assembly of a major Western nation…
Any support, distribution, awareness you can drum up would be of immense help. I thank you in advance for your kind support and remain yours with.
The UK Parliamentary Petition: All UK Residents
A petition has been launched: “Sharia Law and the use of Sharia courts within the UK should be prohibited”. So far less than 20,000 signatures have been attracted. 100,000 are required to discuss the matter in The House of Commons. The deadline is 11 March 2016, that means we have a bit more than a month left.
Sharia Law and the use of Sharia courts within the UK should be prohibited.
Prohibit the Islamic legal system derived from the religious precepts of Islam particularly the Quran and the Hadith from being practised or implemented within the United Kingdom to protect and maintain the supremacy of the UK’s current constitution along with its legal and judicial systems.
Get this link to as many sympathetic people as possible (email friends, have the link on a sheet of paper, and if opportunity arises, say in a pub, pass it on). If we can stop or at least curtail Sharia we will be able to do a lot more. Further, we can prime some of the media, Daily Express for instance, with quotes from the Quran and Hadith, plus Sira and point out how they fit together.
Note this well: With 100,000 signatures it will be discussed on the floor of Parliament, in a proper session, in public. To hammer this point home: We’d be the first Western country in which the elected representatives have to discuss Sharia publicly in the National Assembly. (Though, ‘they’ and their voluntary Dhimmis may still find a way to high-jack or derail the discussion, they’ll certainly try. Think George Galloway…)
That also means copy this to other forums where English speakers, and thus some Brits, participate.
