Non-muslims using sharia law courts in the UK....

This is very troubling...
Alarming new figures have shown that there has been a growth in the number of non-Muslims opting to have civil disagreements settled in Sharia courts.

According to the Muslim Attribution Tribunal, this year has already seen a 15 per cent rise in the number of non-Muslims taking their cases to the Islamic court. However, critics of the system claim that the Sharia courts are naturally discriminatory and pander to the unequal status which favours men under Islamic law.

Maryam Namazie, spokesperson for the anti-Sharia campaign group One Law for All, commented on the news: "I have spoken to women who are losing custody of their children in the Sharia councils. "Under Sharia law custody of a child goes to the husband after a certain age, irrespective of the welfare of the child."

Last week, a law firm in Scotland announced that it would be offering its clients the choice of using Islamic Sharia law in civil disputes such as divorce and child custody.

It is wrong to suggest that Sharia Law is equal. It believes animals, such as bulls are more valuable then women.

The Islamic Republik of Britain.

British people march with signs that say "Death to those who insult Islam" etc. So of course British people accept notions like cattle being more valuable than women, there are no British feminists anymore, or anyone else with the courage to believe in fundamental human rights.

Maybe the existing legal system favours politically correct outcomes rather than justice? (real conservative)

Indeed very troubling.

ISLAM is the biggest problem the west has ever faced, and most are asleep to it.
