Sharia law 'could have UK role'
Muslim Sharia law could soon be used for decree in Britain. One of the senior Judge has given indication in this regard. Many nonmuslim countries recognises Sharia rule and allows Muslim to settle their dispute under this law. But sometime it confronts with mainland laws as well. Britain will have to put safeguard to avoid any such problem.
Principles of sharia law could play a role in some parts of the legal system, the Lord Chief Justice has said.
Lord Phillips, the most senior judge in England and Wales, said there was no reason sharia law's principles could not be used in mediation.
However, he said this would still be subject to the "jurisdiction of the English and Welsh courts".
Sharia is a set of principles which govern the way many Muslims believe they should live their life.
The Archbishop of Canterbury prompted controversy when he said use of certain aspects of the law "seems unavoidable".
