A parallel legal system
I normally disdain people who do not want competition, but in one instance I support a monopoly: in the case of justice. The Supreme Court is upset, and rightly so, that a "parallel Muslim judicial system" is forming itself across the country. The bodies who run that system, of course, could argue that if there are different civil codes for different religions, then why not different judiciaries as well. That is why we need to end this nonsense and form a uniform civil code. It is a joke if we cannot do that and still call ourselves secular.
