Home > Current Affairs > UK News > :: THE GREAT DEBATE :: SHARI'AH LAW VS BRITISH LAW (17/06/09)



The United Kingdom has for centuries been dictated by a flurry of legislative bodies, fluctuating in tune and structure; since as early as the tenth and eleventh centuries, Britain has undergone a significant number of changes both in its handling of internal affairs as well as its notable foreign policies.

The Changing Faces of British Law

Having been ruled by a staggering list of over 60 English monarchs it has been difficult to isolate what exactly British Law is, particularly so due to its partiality to erratic legislature.

Furthermore, as a result of the general corruption that has characterised the church and monarch, politics has become something of a ‘dirty word' in Britain, more synonymous with lying and exploitation, and consequently, a marked discord has consistently echoed between the ruling elite and general masses, for centuries.

Shari'ah Law Vs British Law

In the Arabic language Shari'ah literally means ‘oasis', juristically however it is taken to mean the divine way of life that Almighty God has ordered all mankind to live by.

Between 622CE - 1924CE this Shari'ah was established on state level encompassing countries and continents, implementing its justice to all those fortunate enough to live under its dominion; crucially however, due to the divine nature of its foundations, those rules which are known in Islam by necessity have continued to manifest themselves without alteration, and thus the Shari'ah has never been subject to the manipulation of man that has characterised the British Law & Order.

In summary, the United Kingdom has never genuinely experienced the exquisite beauty of divine law, its rulers have been dictatorial and its legislation corrupt, hence it is with this in mind that sincere followers of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'ah have come together to tackle this dilemma head on.

Who will be debating for British Law?

Born Douglas Kear Murray, he is currently the director of think-tank, Centre for Social Cohesion; described by some as a prominent neo-conservative he is also a political writer and has contributed significantly to the magazine, Standpoint as well as newspapers the Guardian and Sunday Times. His media appearances have been regular and include: BBC's Question Time, Newsnight,  HardTalk, Today Programme, BBC Question and BBC Arabic.

His focus is largely centred on Islamic affairs as his website illustrates.

Douglas Murray was recently been banned from the London School of Economics for 'potentially provoking further unrest', in January 2009, in light of the (illegal) Israeli incursion in Gaza, Palestine; his staunch and unwarranted criticism of Islam has led to him requiring police protection in Holland and moreover he has (on several occasions) openly demonstrated Islam's ‘incompatibility' with the West.

He has been quoted as saying, "All immigration into Europe from Muslim countries must stop" and, "We in Europe owe no special dues to Islam. We owe them no religious holidays, special rights or privileges." [Douglas Murray on ‘What to do with Islam' March 2006].

Douglas Murray will be debating for British Law.

Purpose of Debate

The purpose of this debate is ultimately for the truth to prevail and for the falsehood to vanquish, and we hope that by this illuminating discussion the British public will experience the superiority of al-Islam over that of the British Law.
