Sadhek Khan’s “The Emirates of Britain”: short story of London cabbie

“The Emirates of Britain” is a short story written by Sadhek Khan about Derek, a cabbie born and raised in East London, who wakes up from a coma only to find that Britain is now ruled by Sharia law.

He finds himself unable to cope with the dramatic changes and desperately searches for answers. His actions lead him to meet Britain’s new ruler, Emir George, which reveals a daring opportunity to end Sharia rule in the UK.

The Emirates of Britain is a blunt portrayal of what some in Western society fear most: a Muslim takeover. It is a tale befitting contemporary Britain where Islamophobia and myths surrounding Muslim minorities living in the West are becoming the norm.
