Monday BBC2 at 9pm - Inside a Sharia Court
This should be worth watching.
Some British Muslims want Shari'ah law implemented in the UK. But how could this work alongside the existing legal system? Shari'ah law is already practiced informally here to resolve Islamic divorce, inheritance and family disputes. But many in the west see Shari'ah as oppressive and brutal with punishments like stoning and amputations.
Award winning filmmaker Ruhi Hamid, a British Muslim goes to Nigeria to see Shari'ah law in action.
The Radio Times says a little more as Todays Choice, actually quite a lot more, on the subject of stoning, a woman's evidence being worth half that of a man and that a woman must have four reliable witnesses to an allegation of rape.
"Hamid doesn't shirk difficult questions and spiritedly tries to pin down the judge, who does his best to hide behind such phrases as "It is divine law. Nobody has the right to change it".
