Simple answer, don't go to a 'Sharia court'. It is entirely voluntary, and if you don't like the answer it gives you can always wave 2 fingers at it.
Anyone see it? Undercover filming at some of the 83 sharia courts that have been set up in the UK.
BBC News - Are Sharia councils failing vulnerable women?
Panorama: Inside Britain?s Sharia Courts, BBC One, review - Telegraph
Mainly covering islamic women asking for help/divorce from abusive husbands.
Your husband beats you? Ask him what you are doing wrong and how you can correct yourself.
Your husband beats you and your child? It's best if the husband is given custody of the child.
Want a divorce? It'll cost the woman £400, it'll cost the man sweet feck all and he will get just about everything, the women can go stay in a refuge.
Just a few of these "courts" decisions.
Apparently Labour made a small attempt to look into what was going on but found it too difficult to infiltrate these courts so gave up.
The coalition are just not interested.
Way to go eh?
I suspect that was just typical journo hype/hysteria. I've worked with quite a few muslims who are more than satisfied with Sharia courts and their judgements. Many find them much fairer than courts of law as the focus on the individuals and their lives rather than points of law.
So, apart from posting on here what are YOU going to do about it?
Seems reasonable to me
Sharia has no force in law in this country, therefore anyone who submits to this does so on the same basis as an informal arbitration service. If both parties are happy with that where's the problem?
Or are we just fishing for a bit of indignation?
