'Sharia councils must be penalised'
Sharia councils must be penalised if they do not operate within the law of the land in order to allay fear and distrust among Britons, an MP said today.
Tory MP Kris Hopkins (Keighley and Ilkley) called on the Government to to spell out what penalties it would apply to sharia councils breaking the law.
Islamic sharia councils need to "operate within the law and should not form a concurrent legal system in the UK", he said.
