UK: Archbishop of Canterbury says Islamic rules are incompatible with Britain's laws


Archbishop Welby’s comments follow the release earlier this month of a highly critical Home Office report that said all couples marrying in mosques should also have to go through a legally-binding civil marriage ceremony to shield wives from injustices under sharia.

Welby said British law had 'values and assumptions' rooted in Christian traditions

Sharia law should never become part of the British legal system, the Archbishop of Canterbury said yesterday.

Justin Welby said the Islamic rules are incompatible with Britain’s laws, which have developed over 500 years on the principles of a different culture.

He added that high levels of immigration from Muslim countries can ‘have an impact on the accepted pattern for choosing a partner, on assumed ages of maturity and sexual activity, and especially on issues of polygamy’.
