Expert: Not All Muslims Happy Over UK's Sharia Acceptance


In the wake of a decision by Britain to accept the rulings of Islamic sharia law in matters of inheritance, Arutz Sheva spoke with Ari Soffer, an editor at Arutz Sheva and a former resident of London who is familiar with the on-the-ground political situation in the United Kingdom.

According to Soffer, not all British Muslims support the “creeping Islamization” that the UK has been undergoing, in which Islamic law takes its place among the laws of the land. That process is being pushed by Muslim organizations in Britain, but a large number of Muslims in the country would prefer to keep such laws as a private matter between themselves.
