What is a caliphate and how does it fit in with sharia law and more poignantly, how does it fit in with UK law and democracy ?
The Qur'an basis for caliphate is made clear from the holy book.
The simple answer, in my opinion, is that caliphate and sharia have no place whatsoever in the realms of The United Kingdom, within her shores or within her democracy.In fact placing either of the two terms with democracy would create an oxymoron.
The proposed meeting will take place at 'Bethel Community Centre, Kelvin Way, West Bromwich, B70 7JW', starting at 11am and the cost of admission will be £8.Their website goes on to say "In our global conferences this summer, Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain will highlight how we, as Muslims in the west, need to be at the forefront of the struggle that counters these policies; carrying the real message of Islam, showing how the future Khilafah State will stand with the oppressed people of the world against the exploitation of global capitalism"
Being unable to comment on the first meeting, I can mention the agenda for Sunday's meeting.My comment of the whole situation is simple.
(Didn't Guy Fawkes discuss the overthrow of his Government? And wasn't he hung for those discussions , also known as Treason?)
They certainly didn't struggle to have Britain become a third world Islamic republic.Lets also hope that Sundays meeting will draw some attention from the mainstream press!
