A POLITICIAN has voiced her backing for Sharia Law being introduced in Europe, calling it “absolutely compatible” with current legislation.
The State Secretary for the Berlin Government, Sawsan Chebli, defended Islamic law saying it can exist alongside German law because it “largely regulates the relationship between God and man”
She also defended the headscarf as a “religious duty” and said there should be no problem with those who choose to wear one.
On Tuesday, Berlin Mayor Michael Mueller announced the new government consisting of Social-Democrats (SPD), Greens and the left-wing ‘Die Linke’ party that will rule Berlin.
He made the announcement that Ms Chebli, 38, would become the future state secretary in charge of federal government coordination.
But the move has even raised eyebrows within her own party with many colleagues labelling the move as “fatal”.
Erol Ozkaraca said: “Chebli is one of the comrades who wants to build a bridge to Islamist societies. I think this is absolutely wrong.”
I think this is absolutely wrong
Ms Chebli grew up in a religious-conservative parental home with twelve siblings, and has repeatedly spoken out in favour of the headscarf and Islamic sharia law.
While she said her father could not “read or write”, Ms Chebli still thought he is “more integrated than many functionaries of the AfD”, referring to the far-right party which is hugely critical about Angela Merkel’s refugee policy.
Mr Ozkaraca is now threatening to resign from the party should Chebli be instated into the role.
He said: “If Mueller takes this decision [to install Chebli as state secretary], I do not have an opportunity anymore to represent my view in this party.”
