Canadian Shari’a Watch

• Views: 8,372

Canada is embarking on a dangerous and utterly wrong-headed legal adventure: Canada preparing to enforce Islamic law. (Quite a few LGF readers sent me this link; hat tips to all.)

Canadian judges soon will be enforcing Islamic law, or Sharia, in disputes between Muslims, possibly paving the way to one day administering criminal sentences, such as stoning women caught in adultery.

Muslims are required to submit to Sharia in Muslim societies but are excused in nations where they live as a minority under a non-Muslim government.

Canada, however, is preparing for its 1 million-strong Muslim minority to be under the authority of a Sharia system enforced by the Canadian court system, according to the Canadian Law Times.

Muslim delegates at a conference in Etobicoke, Ont., in October elected a 30-member council to establish the Islamic Institute of Civil Justice.

The institute is classified in Islamic law as a Darul-Qada, or judicial tribunal. Its bylaws are scheduled to be drafted and approved by Dec. 31.

Cases will be decided by a Muslim arbitrator, but the local secular Canadian court will be the enforcer.

UPDATE: Here is the article at Law Times News on which this WorldNetDaily story was based: First steps taken for Islamic arbitration board.
