No sharia council in Norway

Earlier this week a debate broke out after representatives of as well the Norwegian Islamic Council as the Norwegian court of law said they might be open for a national sharia council, judging in family matters. A number of politicians, as well as Muslim representatives, has spoken against such an institution. Foreign minister Jonas Gahr Störe says everyone is to apply to the same laws in Norway, and that a separate family law for Muslims would have a negative effect on integration.
