uk sanctions wife-beaters

ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.

Uh, this is kind of big deal, especially if you’re a Muslim woman.

There are concerns that women who agree to go to tribunal courts are getting worse deals because Islamic law favours men.

Siddiqi said that in a recent inheritance dispute handled by the court in Nuneaton, the estate of a Midlands man was divided between three daughters and two sons.

The judges on the panel gave the sons twice as much as the daughters, in accordance with sharia. Had the family gone to a normal British court, the daughters would have got equal amounts.

In the six cases of domestic violence, Siddiqi said the judges ordered the husbands to take anger management classes and mentoring from community elders. There was no further punishment.

In each case, the women subsequently withdrew the complaints they had lodged with the police and the police stopped their investigations.

  1. all to keep the peace – inch by inch – I guess the Brits are PC.

    It has to suck if you are a homosexual muslim in Britian. Who would’ve ever thought 30 years ago there would be a massive push for Sharia law around the world. Makes Jimmy Falwell look like Harvey Milk.

    It is a fucked up world.
