French Muslims 'support hardline Islam, Shariah'

(EXPRESS) — A GROUNDBREAKING survey has revealed more than a quarter of Muslims in France follow hardline Islam and almost half support Sharia law.

The study shows 28 per cent of French Muslims follow an “authoritarian” interpretation of texts that advocate a split from French society.

It also unearthed that more than 14 per cent of 15 to 25-year-olds believe Islamic Sharia law carries more weight than that of their place of residence.
