The following petition has been sent to the Home Secretary, the Rt Hon Priti Patel MP:
Dear Home Secretary,
Over the past few weeks we at Britain First have been gathering signatures for a petition concerning the shutting down of all sharia courts in the UK.
At the time of writing we have 5660 signatures, and as Campaigns Officer I have been asked to forward the petition to you for your consideration.
The link to the petition can be found here - https://www.britainfirst.org/shut-down-all-sharia-courts-in-the-uk-for-good
I hope that you will be able to give this petition your most serious consideration, as the continuing existence of these sharia courts effectively constitutes a parallel legal system at odds with British law in many important respects, especially in regards to discrimination against non-Muslims, women, and gays.
Allowing them to flourish will do nothing for our much-vaunted 'community cohesion' and will only increase the divisions and tensions in our society by discouraging integration and assimilation into mainstream British culture.
There should be one law - British law - for all.
Please feel free to contact me by email should you have any questions.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely, etc.,
We will let you know as soon as we have a response to this petition. In the meantime I would like to thank Britain First member Adam Greenberg for initiating this petition, and the 5660 people who signed the petition before it was submitted.
Please continue to sign our petitions and our complaints drives - every signature counts, and with every signature added we can make sure that those in power realise that we are becoming an ever-increasing force to be reckoned with!
Timothy M Burton - Campaigns Officer, Britain First
