    Scots grow concerned that Sharia law may be on the way

    Residents of Scotland are concerned Sharia courts, which have been
    operational in England for more than a year, will soon be set up in
    Scottish cities.

    Secret talks are said to be underway to bring Sharia courts to Edinburgh
    and Glasgow.

    The move is being opposed by some sections of Scottish society, who have
    been vocal in pointing out that attempts to set up Sharia courts in Canada
    in 2005 had also failed after protests.

    Qamar Bhatti, director of the Muslim Arbitration Tribunal, which runs the courts, admitted secret discussions were taking place with lawyers and
    Muslim community groups in Scotland.

    Sharia law is an Islamic legal system, derived from the Koran.

    It covers every aspect of a Muslim's life and day-to-day conduct.
