it was originally a Jewish thing, and as England basically turned a blind eye to it, the Muslims wanted to do the same...but its not full Sharia...its only Civil Law...because anything more would contravene British Law which obviously cant be tollerated..
...unless you listen to the Archbishop of Canterbury...who thinks Sharia should be fully implemented, but only govern the Muslims of course...sucks if your a homosexual muslim I suppose
Thanks for clarifying. When I originally read that I thought, WOW that can't be good for gay people. Heck, drunks and druggies as well.....
Sharia Muslims would conduct hangings.
