Muslims Demand Muslim Law

Published fredag 28 april 2006 kl 12.09

Sweden’s biggest association of  Muslims demands the right for Swedish Muslims to practice their own laws.

Special laws for marriage and divorce, and public schools teaching Arabic and religion to Muslim children in homogenous groups. These are two of the requests in a letter sent to all the political parties in the Parliament yesterday by the Muslim association.

The Muslim association represents approximately 70 000 Muslims. The letter, signed by the chairman, states that freedom of religion is not properly practiced in Sweden. They want Islamic law to be allowed for Muslim’s in Sweden, especially when it comes to family laws.

Sweden’s Minister of Equal Opportunities, Jens Orback, is not impressed. In a comment to news bureau TT, he says that no minority will have special treatment, and that all Swedish citizens should be equal to the law.

The Swedish Muslim Council, including nine of Sweden’s Islamic organisation does not support the demands.
