    What should a British Muslim do?

    There was hostility towards Muslims for many years prior to the 1990s when headlines were full of hate comments. There was much " P-word bashing" in the sixties and seventies.

    So, you would exchange one form of tyranny (thou shalt wear a burqa) for another (thou shalt not wear a burqa) would you? You're as bad scalded as burnt with that one. It's as bad forcing someone out of the choice of wearing a burqa, as it would be, forcing them into wearing it. ---------- Post added 12-07-2015 at 16:03 ---------- Actually, though, I know quite a number of ladies who are converts, who wear the full veil, none of whom are Asian,. I dont wear the veil myself, only the headscarf, Also, its not so much the asian community who wear a burqa, it's more women of Arab or Afghani descent who tend to go for the veil amongst "born" Muslims.

    no, BB, it's a triumph for the idiots who misinterpret the scriptures, both on the part of the accused criminals and the judiciary involved in their release.

    "I dont believe it" new ad for sausages on Tv

    no, Mohammmed was his final prophet, all the other scriptural prophets are considered genuine, too, according to Islam, Adam, Noah, Moses, Abraham, David, etc etc.

    Blaster You have it wrong, as usual. The four witnesses are not needed as witnesses to rape. It's nothing todo with rape. It's four witnesses to adultery. Under Islamic law you are required, if you are bringing a charge of adultery against a woman, tohave four witnesses to the actual sex-act. Secondly. Bloodshed and warfare. A) the Qur'an says, in chapter 5 v32 "If you take a life, it is as if you have killed the whole of mankind. If you save a life, it is as if you have saved the whole of mankind." B)all this banging on about jihad this and jihad that... The ignorant do not even understand that there are two different forms of jihad, the greater jihadand the lesser jihad. The greater jihad is the inner jihad, the struggle with one's desires and conquering the self. Folk need to understand the difference.

    So does Sheffield have any History.

    . George Talbot, MQoS gaoler, was the husband of Bess of Hardwick. She was he second richest woman in Elizabethan England (Liz being the richest). Norfolk Park was the deer park where she hunted. Bess was married three times, and was linked with many notable lines,including the Talbot/ Shrewsburys, the Devonshires (I believe her money built the original Chatsworth, before this one, the seat of the Devonshires). And aswell as Hardwick and Chatsworth she was linked to a castle in Leicestershire ( I forget the name) and Haddon Hall, ( I may be wrong in thinking she was linked to Thoresby)
  15. I had an honorary aunt and uncle, as a tot, who were ludlams. They lived on Gleadless valley. I can't remember the wife's first namev(lily?) but the husband was Douggie.

Lovely to pop in for a coffee and a slice of cake of an afternoon. They also currently have an offer of any pizza or pasta main course between 12 and 6 (I think) for just a fiver.

    So does Sheffield have any History.

    Is the fact that Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned here in Sheffield for 14 or so of her twenty-odd years of imprisonment inconsequential? What about the civil war? Sheffield castle was "one of the ruins Cromwell knocked about a bit." In Roman times, there was a fortress on wincobank hill...
