A tribunal which uses Sharia law to make its decisions says that it is seeing more non-Muslims come to them for help. The Muslim Arbitration Tribunal was set up in 2007. Barrister Sheikh Faiz-Ul-Aqtab Siddiqi, founder of the tribunal, and Dr Denis MacEoin, a former lecturer in Islamic studies, discuss why someone who does not belong to a particular religion would choose to use a service which uses that faith's law.
