Sharia law 'exists in Austria and Germany'
A Pakistani-Austrian author who converted from Islam to Catholicism has said that Muslims who refuse to integrate should not be able to live in Europe, and that Sharia law is being openly practised in Austria and Germany.
In an interview with the Kronen Zeitung newspaper Sabatina James (not her real name) said that the teachings of the prophet Muhammad encourage violence. "He called for women to be beaten and for adulteresses to be stoned, for apostates to be executed... if all this violence has nothing to do with Islam, then Mohammed has nothing to do with Islam."
She added that "there are democratic Muslims, no question - they are not the problem... but the established theology of Islam must deal with the problem of violence against women. But it lacks critical debate."
