Ten shari'a courts in Britain

And these would-be courts, according to the Telegraph (via Dhimmi Watch), they're demanding that Muslim wives be attentive to the needs of their Muslim husbands:
Ten currently operate across the country, with around 95 per cent of their cases relating to matrimonial issues.

Although the hearings have no basis in British law, they are attended voluntarily by Muslim couples to settle disputes without referral to the recognised authorities.

In some cases they can order wives to be more attentive to their husbands' needs, or deal with releasing spouses from bad or forced marriages.

The first Muslim court was established in Birmingham in 1982 and others have followed in London and the Yorkshire towns of Rotherham and Dewsbury.
Good that they pointed this out. Apparently, it was already during the Thatcher years that this happened, and is thus far from a recent development.
Although most of those who attend are from the Indian sub-continent, Sharia courts are also popular among those from Arab and Somalian backgrounds.
In other words, no matter what their race/nationality, it is Muslims with whom these courts are popular.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
