Bradford's Muslims generally seemed puzzled by the Archbishop of Canterbury's suggestion that Sharia laws should be adopted in Britain.

Stand on any one of the hills overlooking Bradford and across the skyline you can see the domes of mosques.

About 75,000 Muslims live here and many of them have been following the reaction to the comments by Dr Rowan Williams.

But the view over the mosques tells its own story. The people who attend each place of worship believe in their own interpretation of Sharia Law.

What one group believe to be Sharia is likely to be disputed by others just down the road.
