A number of interesting things have happened recently:
- The Law Society has provided legal guidance to ensure that Muslims in Britain can have their wills judged according to Sharia.
- BBC Newsnight hosted an in-studio row between three Muslims over whether one Muslim should be allowed to say or do anything that is deemed religiously insensitive by any other Muslim. Majority opinion seemed to be ‘no’.
- Then there has been huge excitement that, after decades during which tens of thousands of girls in Britain were genitally mutilated, charges have for the first time been brought against some suspected perpetrators of this horrific crime.
Just in case anyone is lost in all this – this is Britain in 2014.
