UK Muslim demands shari’a-compliant sentence

Noreen Shah is a most devout Muslim. So devout, in fact, that she has falsely claimed more than £10,000 in benefits whilst having £20,000 safely stashed away under her mattress.

Having found her guilty of obtaining money by deception, the court was looking to impose a punishment in the form of a ‘high level community order’ (community service).

But Dacorum Magistrates Court’s bench, chaired by Sandra Caldwell, was informed that because of Mrs Shah’s religious beliefs, the proposed community order ‘could cause difficulties’ if she had to work alongside men. She was perfectly content to work in an all-female environment, but insisted that her faith forbade her to work alongside men.

So devout is she to the cause of Allah, that she could not be punished in the same manner as other British citizens. No, she had to retain her purity and modesty.

One wonders if she only extracted monies from female employees of the benefits agency, or permits herself to be served only by female employees of the post office.

Her defence lawyer, one Mr Bashir, informed the court that Mrs Shah is a pillar of Islam the community, and voluntarily works at the Watford Mosque to ‘further the children’s Islamic education’.

What a role model she must be.

This, he insisted, along with her ‘religious objections’ to community service, meant that his client deserves a conditional discharge.

But a report into her crime also recommended a curfew, yet the court was told that this was ‘not appropriate’ with the Muslim festival of Ramadan approaching.

Mr Bashir said there would be night-time activities in the local mosque that she would miss out on. And so devout is she, that to miss out on these revels would cause her irreparable spiritual damage.

A few professing Christians ought to try this one on the approach to Christmas: ‘You can’t put me in prison – it will ruin my enjoyment of the Turkey and I’ll miss the Dr Who special (not to mention the "night-time activities")’.

But the chairman of the bench was having none of this nonsense, and sentenced Mrs Shah to a 12-month community order with 120 hours unpaid work, and awarded prosecution costs of £550.

Does Mrs Shah not realise that in certain Islamic countries she could have lost a hand and even her life for the crime she committed? And here she is professing her absolute devotion to her god and insisting that British courts respect her pious hyper-sensitivities.

To his credit, Rashid Choudhrey, one of the trustees of the Watford Mosque, said that he knew nothing in the Islamic faith to prevent Mrs Shah carrying out unpaid work alongside men: “Islam does not forbid her. My understanding is that if you commit a crime, you take the punishment,” he said. “If you are that religious you should not commit the crime anyway. If you are that God fearing, why would you want to take money away from other people that need it?”

And on the curfew, he said that it would have been ‘an ideal sentence’ as Ramadan ‘like being on a curfew anyway’.

It is good to know that there are anti-dhimmi magistrates and mosque leaders who are prepared to dismiss this politically-correct and culturally-alien nonsense. That there is one law in England & Wales, and that all citizens are equal before the law, are cornerstones of the British Constitution. If Mrs Shah is not happy with this, Cranmer is happy to pay for her plane ticket to a land which she may find more culturally conducive to her demands.

Theft isn't the same when she does it over here rather than in an Islamic country, your grace.

In Saudi Arabia, it would genuinely be theft. Here though, she's obviously just been claiming the jizya that she believes that we infidels all owe her.

I think that community service is a far, far, better idea than a custodial sentence. How about making her work with "Guide Dogs For The Blind", helping walk Retriever puppies?

I'd love to see her face if they made her do something like that. Oh, wait...she'd probably be wearing a niqab, anyway.

Don't bother with letting her walk the dogs, just let her clean up after them .... indefinitely, at least 10,000 pounds worth!

That's another couple of thousand BNP votes.

These people really are quite astoundingly - and genuinely - stupid aren't they.

Islam divides the world into two parts-the House of Islam(those in submission to Allah-moslems
And the House of war(non-moslems-infidels.)where apparently anything goes!

Noreen? NOREEN?

Doesn't sound very Muslim to me! Is she a convert? If so, her demands can't be that cultural!!!

Don't you have to consent to community service order (on the basis that if you don't consent, you can be sent to prison?) That always used to be the case. If so then Mrs Shah must have managed to reconcile it with her conscience somehow!

My sentiments entirely Your Grace, only my less educated person has used different words in the past,ie: "If you don't like it here, then piss off back to where you belong."

Others seem to have touched on this too, but honesty and come to that law, the only law that matters in Islam, Infidels are game to be exploited and murdered in the name of Islam.

Islam will happily kill or convert everyone, the resulting desolation they will call peace.

Very eloquently put (as always) your Grace.
Would that the Lord Chief Justice and the Archbishop of Canterbury recognise this instead of the recent and ill advised comments on sharia law - and I say this as a practising lawyer myself.

Gosh, some of the comments on here are a bit scary. Maybe some people ought to go and meet real Muslims rather than just read anti-Muslim books. Mind you, it'd help if my brethren were generally more outgoing and behaved in a more British manner...

Anyway, thank you for a refreshingly just tale, your grace.

Perhaps being sent to jail (a women's prison) would have been the best resolution.

how long until Sharia Law hits the U.S. in official fashion?

The blog Creeping Sharia has been watching the disheartening progression

You see....we completely miss the issue here!
The Koran is quite clear that it IS the obligation of EVERY devout muslim thing to TAKE AS BOOTY anything you can steal or pillage from the Kafur (non muslim thing).

It is perfectly acceptable in Islam t take from those less well off IF they are non muslim.

The REAL issue is that she WAS being islamic in stealing from us,and the muslim thing commentator later tried (and succeeded) to tell us that she was being unislamic by taking from us. AND everyone has believed it!!!

People...AWAKE....... yu missed the whole real issue in this.ISLAM is here to swell and grow fat on us all until it rules us.
