The Light Foundation, launched at the University of Central Lancashire, is holding an event calling for Britain to adopt Sharia law.
The seminar entitled, “Is it now time for Sharia Law in the UK?” is hosted by the local Methodist church. This is a surprising choice, because surely the role of a church is to promote Christianity and not other faiths.
The event features guest panellists Shaykh Adam Kelwick from Liverpool, and Shaykh Bilal Brown from Oldham.
The Light Foundation group has support from the Mayor and Mayoress of Preston. Their website states that their aim is for a “greater awareness of traditional Islam by promoting teachings firmly rooted in reliable Sunni scholarship.”
The event advert on Facebook states that Sharia has been “used . . . to kill others in the name of religion”. The legal system has often been criticised by opponents of FGM, while even Channel 4 has criticised Mohammed’s rape of a nine year-old child.
Freedom of religion is a right, certainly, but the practise of faith, whatever faith, must be in a peaceful manner, subject to the English law (Scottish in Scotland, etc.).
