Sharia law applied secretly in Sydney
by Gemma Jones
Sharia law is already being practised in western Sydney, with hundreds of religious divorces granted by imams.
The Australian Federation of Islamic Councils has asked a Federal Government inquiry into multiculturalism to permit sharia law, especially in divorce cases.
But a sheik and Muslim leaders yesterday said sharia law was already being used to end hundreds of marriages a year. Sharia law is also being used by imams in cases of business disputes and neighbourhood fights.
