UK: Sharia courts operating beyond reach of British law and oppressing women

sharia-court-ukAs the number of Sharia courts operating behind closed doors – and beyond the reach of British law – continues to grow apace, a new documentary has exposed what really happens during the shadowy proceedings.

Channel 4 documentary was granted access to Birmingham Central Mosque, so it is likely that those in charge sought to convey the best possible image, knowing that the footage and commentary would be broadcast. Nonetheless, the broadcast left viewers dumbfounded.

According to the Daily Mail, there are believed to be about 85 Sharia courts in the UK; the Express puts the number at 100. These courts are supposed to resolve family, marriage and financial disputes for Muslims; they are predictably is misogynistic, and consequently damaging to women, and by proxy to children.

Sharia-compliant women are subjugated and intimidated. While Muslim men need simply to tell their wives “I divorce you” three times to be free of her, the process for wives is quite different. Viewers watched Fatima go through the emotional trauma of pleading her case before the three Sharia court judges. The 33-year-old mother of four children had to plead her case and obtain “permission to divorce the drug dealer husband she says has emotionally abused her throughout their 14 year marriage.”

This troubling documentary depicts a bed of roses compared to other judgments that are being handed down by Britain’s Sharia courts. A couple of examples: a Sharia court handed down a sentence approving of honor killing, and another ordered a traumatized woman to return to her abusive rapist husband.

The silence from feminists is deafening.

There are believed to be 85 Sharia courts in the UK, and last night Channel 4’s Extremely British Muslims aired footage captured inside Birmingham’s Central Mosque as a council dispensed its strict religious form of justice.

Viewers witnessed the struggle of mother-of-four Fatima, 33, as she sought permission to divorce the drug dealer husband she says has emotionally abused her throughout their 14 year marriage.

The Islamic court, which seeks to provide Muslims with resolutions to financial, familial and marital disputes according to the principles of their faith, granted Fatima’s request.

But that she was forced to plead her case at all is in stark contrast to the divorce process for Muslim men, who need only tell their spouse ‘I divorce you’ three times in order to free themselves of a marriage.

Under Islamic law, marriage is a legal bond and social contract between a man and a woman, but the marriages are not binding under UK law…
