Bishop fears sharia bonds pave way for more Islamic law
David Cameron's plans to issue sharia-compliant bonds open the way to Islamic law being enforced at the heart of government, a senior clergyman has warned.
Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, the former bishop of Rochester, said proposals to make Britain the first non-Muslim country to sell a bond that complies with sharia could trigger a series of "unforeseen consequences".
He also voiced broader fears that Christianity was being increasingly excluded from the administration of law, after one of Britain's most senior judges said members of the judiciary were "secular" figures serving a "multicultural community".
