Wow. I am watching the BBC and reporters have done some undercover filming of the Sharia councils. Scary stuff. They concluded by saying that they believe that the UK should make it illegal to have sharia councils. Some MPs have tried to introduce laws but they say political correctness has prevented the laws because many MPs are worried about being seen as Islamaphobes. I am not aware of a country that has had two "legal" systems, one being a religious legal system working "underneath", that has worked out. And yes, there are have been "parallel"legal systems before.
