This petition is aimed at preventing Sharia Law from becoming an accepted part of the legal system in the UK. We want to be very clear that neither this petition, nor Sharia Law has anything to do with race. This petition is in regard to a set of laws based around the beliefs of a religion. This country already has its own system of laws. They are designed to provide protection to all citizens of this country in a fair and equal way. This must include taking each person’s cultural differences into account, but also must include all people under the exact same set of laws.
Nobody thinks that the UK legal system is perfect. However, that does not mean that we should chop and change the system we use according to the cultural background of the people involved. There are currently more than 80 Sharia Law “courts” operating in the UK. These courts operate outside of current UK law in many matters. Our country is called the UNITED Kingdom. We need to stay united, behind one system of law. Sharia Law is just one example of one of many based around a religion. Religious beliefs have no place in a country’s legal system, except for providing protection to innocent people from being abused or attacked because of those beliefs. Sharia Law is the subject of this petition because of the alarming rate at which it is being accepted into our society.
There are many sources of information on this subject. Please read as many as you can and make up your own mind whether Sharia Law is good or bad. That argument is not the purpose of this petition. It’s purpose is to give a voice to all of the people of the United Kingdom who believe we should have one set of laws for every citizen. This is the only way to guarantee a fair and equal standing for everyone. Please sign this petition and let your voice be heard!

Please take the time to read as much as you can on this subject. Not just the links supplied here, there is a huge amount of information available, read as much as you can so your decision is as informed as possible. We do not aim to change the world with this petition, only to protect the residents of the United Kingdom…. ALL of them! This is an amazing, multicultural society, we want it to stay this way! However this is one country and as such we must have one legal system offering the same rights and protection to every person living here.
The aim is simple, the message is simple:
ONE COUNTRY, ONE LAW
