 Dear Sir/Madam

 The One Law for All Campaign was launched on 10 December 2008, International Human Rights Day, to call on the UK Government to recognise that Sharia and religious courts are arbitrary and discriminatory against women and children in particular and that citizenship and human rights are non-negotiable. The Campaign aims to end Sharia and all religious courts on the basis that they work against, and not for, equality and human rights.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    AS you may be aware, on Sunday 20th June 2010 One Law For All held a Rally opposite Downing Street opposing Sharia law and religious laws in favour of all citizens being treated equally, and secular separation of religion and state (the best proven guarantee of religious pluralism). A counter demonstration was organised by a group calling themselves Muslims Against Crusades (MAC), who declared that one day Britain would be governed wholly by Sharia law. 

Some members of the English Defence League (EDL) attempted to hold their own rally in response to the presence of MAC, but were arrested for not having permission to assemble.

During the rally, a large group of teenage boys carrying Unite Against Fascism (UAF) placards marched past Downing Street escorted by the police. We understand they marched from the UAF event in Whitechapel. When they reached the MAC they joined the chants of ‘Allahu Akbar!’.

 

I’m writing to invite you to clarify Unite Against Fascism’s position on Sharia law. 

I look forward to a response.

    Did ‘Unite Against Fascism’ get back to you on this with a response? From what I remember (I was in Whitechapel myself that day as I live not far from the area) the U.A.F managed to get young Muslim men in the area riled up before leaving the area completely (leaving loads of angry young men to have a go at the police). Seemed like more a desperate recruitment-tactic. It would be interesting if U.A.F could clarify their position on Sharia law.

      Yes I to would be interested in the UAF response and I share the aboves impression that the UAF are intent on causing trouble among young Muslims and then disapearing leaving the police with the problem of calming the situation. I have heard via the net that the MDL has made it clear that they realise that the UAF are trying to use them.
      As a member of the EDL I would like to confirm that we stand 100% against Sharia Law We also support the Stop Stoneing Campaigne, Equal Rights for Muslim Woman, Gay Rights etc

    Considering that EDL members poured beer over a Muslim woman when she raised objections to some of the slogans being chanted on an EDL march, (click on link below for source), I find the above reply from a declared EDL member, who states that they support the campaign, ‘Equal Rights for Muslim Woman’, somewhat disingenuous.
