Sadly the depredations that Bearded Savagery visits upon women isn’t only confined to those hell holes overseas that are ruled by Islam, women are being treated like dirt by Islamic ‘law’ in the UK as well.
The arrival of Islam to the United Kingdom has brought with it amongst other things, Shariah Law and the Islamic courts to enforce them. These Shariah courts are not just concerned with matters of religion but are part of a system of total domination of Islam over the individual.
These Shariah Courts have very little in common with either the Church Courts which exercise discipline over the Christian clergy or the Jewish Beth Din, which is primarily concerned with food, religious matters and conversion issues.
Anybody taking their case to a Shariah Court is getting a very different standard of ‘justice’ than they would get by taking their dispute to a secular court. This different standard is no more obvious than how Shariah Courts treat women.
The Daily Express has a report that a BBC Panorama programme that investigated the treatment of women in Shariah courts found that such women were treated disadvantageously.
The Express said:
“The programme, to be screened tomorrow night, highlights the problems faced by Muslim women who are pressured to stay in abusive marriages. Posing as a woman seeking a divorce from her violent husband, the reporter consults Dr Hasan of the Leyton Islamic Sharia council in east London.
His first response is to ask if she has done anything to provoke her treatment.
He asks her: “I think that you should be courageous enough to ask this question to him. Just tell me why you are so upset, huh? Is it because of my cooking? Is it because I see my friends, huh? So I can correct myself.”
The reporter asks if she should report the violence to the police but is warned: “You involve the police if he hits you but you must understand this will be the final blow.
“You will have to leave the house. Where will you go then? A refuge? A refuge is a very bad option. Women are not happy in such places.” “
It is plain to see from the article how the priority for Dr Hasan appears to be to keep the woman in the abusive marriage and only contact the police as a very last resort. It is chilling to see how Dr Hasan warns the woman that she will be cast out of the community if she involves the authorities. This is a Shariah Court and this is the everyday misogyny that it practices.
Baroness Cox, who is trying to get legislation passed that will stop Shariah tribunals like Dr Hasan’s passing themselves off as genuine courts, is correct when she said that Shariah Law is “utterly incompatible with our country’s values. It is time to draw a line in the sand and say ‘enough is enough’.”
I agree, it is time to draw a line in the sand and start forbidding the opening up of new Shariah courts and shutting down those that already exist. We should no longer tolerate the intolerable, woman hating Shariah law acting as a parallel legal system in the UK. Shariah, like so much else pertaining the the ideology of Islam is not compatible with a legal system based on equality before the law.

Here is the website and contact details for the Islamic Sharia Council of Leyton. They also have a forthcoming ‘fatwa’ section which I’m sure will be a bundle of laughs although probably not.
