Sharia law set for the Capital

This is Scotland now-do we want to see it under Shariah Law? What if this became a mosque?

EDINBURGH could soon have its own court for Sharia law, it was reported today.
Talks are said to be in place to create the controversial facility in both the Capital and Glasgow.

Courts carrying out the Muslim law are reported to be already operating in mosques and shops in English cities with large Muslim populations.

The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal admitted talks were ongoing, which has led to concerns regarding women’s rights.

Conservative justice spokesman Bill Aitken reportedly said: “In criminal matters, Scottish courts must have total jurisdiction. Matters of divorce and domestic violence require to be determined by conventional courts.”
