    This thread arises from here. An comparative overview of Sharia and Beth Din courts and legal principles can be found here, plus you can visit the website of the London Beth Din here and to the Sharia Council here so that you can judge for yourselves.

    Multiculturalism does not mean that we inevitably accept cultural enforcement against crimes - why would you say it does?

    You agree with those academic lawyers? To some degree, I think there has always been and will be some cultural vigilantism, but I disagree that it must inevitably be accepted.
