Muslim college in Midlands is running sharia law court
by Jeannette Oldham
A MUSLIM college in the Midlands is running the UK's first official sharia law court.
The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal has already used sharia law to decide the outcome of more than 100 civil disputes between Muslims across the UK since it opened its doors last December.
The tribunal, which operates alongside the British legal system, was set up by scholars and lawyers at Hijaz College Islamic University in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.
