Aina Khan gave live interviews on Nick Ferrari’s LBC Radio show and BBC Radio 5 Live on 24th March 2014 discussing the Telegraph’s “Islamic law is adopted by British legal chiefs” article featured on 2nd March 2014.
As a leading figurehead in the UK on Islamic Law, Aina Khan was asked to comment on this headline and to explain whether “Islamic law is to be effectively enshrined in the British legal system” and whether “Under groundbreaking guidance, produced by The Law Society, High Street solicitors will be able to write Islamic wills that deny women an equal share of inheritances and exclude unbelievers altogether” as the Telegraph had claimed.
“The article was misleading. No change had been made in the law. People were still free to give away their estate in whichever way they wished. The Law Society had merely given recent guidance for Solicitors drawing up “Sharia Compliant” wills. There was an agenda in certain organisations to stir up discord where there is none”.
