Sharia in Denmark

A recent poll showed that some 18% of Muslims living in Denmark would like sharia law integrated into Danish law. Denmark already allows the use of so-called sharia loans that are interest-free.

The Danish Muslims are actually relatively restrained. In Great Britain, where some 61% of Muslims said they wanted sharia law introduced into UK law, sharia councils are already operating in cases involving private conflicts between Muslims, as well as in cases involving family and inheritance law.
