Sharia law has now been inserted into the laws of member states – Leading expert on Islam
According to the ECHR ruling, a person cannot call Mohammed a paedophile or commit an abusive attack on him. It does not say that a person can’t refer to the facts of history from Islam’s own doctrinal texts–the Koran, the Hadith (the words and deeds of Mohammed), and the Sira (Mohammed’s biography). At this point it is still legal to state the facts of the doctrine of Islam if there is no conclusion drawn or opinion being made.
It is important to note that there are two sub-texts here. The first is that the ruling does not use the name “Mohammed”. Since the ECHR refers to him as the Prophet of Islam, they are confirming that they agree he is a true prophet.
This is in essence the ECHR accepting the second half of the Shahada, the Islamic statement of faith that there is no god but Allah and Mo-hammed is his Prophet. To move to being a full Sharia court they only need to say the first part of the Shahada: “there is no god, but Allah”.
This leads to the second sub-text. The ECHR uses the phrase: “putting at risk religious peace”. One can from this statement that the ECHR is afraid of Islamic violent backlash and riots. Said another way, they are afraid of more jihad against the Kafirs.
Sharia law has now been inserted into the laws of the 47 member states who hold to the European Convention on Human Rights, an international treaty to protect human rights and political freedoms in Europe. What an irony.
