Sharia Law in Britain - How Significant ?

The One Law For All Campaign has recently held a demonstration in Trafalgar Square opposing the spread of Sharia Based Tribunals in Britain and has issued a booklet Sharia Law in Britain a Threat to One Law for All and Equal Rights. Though I have sympathy with some of the objections raised by the campaign I do consider that the issue is rather more complex and subtle than they suggest

Following the demonstration Maryam Namazie who directs the campaign wrote an Article in The Guardian and I was asked to write one in response I hope that both articles are a worthwhile contribution to this complex debate that can inspire very strong feelings on both sides
