Sharia courts are putting women at risk of violence from abusive husbands, the Crown Prosecution Service has warned.
The courts, which issue rulings according to Islamic law, have been found to be giving Muslim women advice which experts warned may place them in danger.
Undercover filming in some of the 85 councils operating in mosques and houses across the country has revealed that the courts, which are run by sharia councils, are ruling in favour of men meeting estranged wives or having access to children when they have found to have been abusive.
Sharia law has no formal place in any of Britains legal systems. However, the investigation found courts in London which follow it were making rulings on domestic and marital issues according to Islamic law which appeared at odds with English family law.
Although they are not legally binding, those who were subject to the rulings them felt they had to follow them as a matter of religious belief - or because they felt under pressure from family and community to do so.
In one case filmed by a BBC reporter for the Panorama documentary, an Islamic scholar from a sharia council ruled in a custody dispute that the children should be taken away from their mother and be placed with their reportedly violent father.

Watch the scandal become the undercover filming, not the courts themselves.
I'm stuned. This is hugh!
Makeit against the law to practice Sharia law.
Those who do get locked up or deported. Kill two birds with one stone. Muslims who want Sharia law move out and the real law becomes once again dominant.
Sharia laws are made by immigrants. Immigrants are no longer “illegal.” They can create any laws they want, and we must treat those laws with love and compassion.
How can this be? moozlums are peace-loving, woman-loving and (did I say it already?) peace-loving.
It’s only fair to let the whole world to come here — billions and billions of people — so they can get free health care, endless unemployment checks, food stamps and aid of their illegitimate babies. No immigrant left behind, as George “compassionate conservative” W. Bush once said.
That’s what makes America great.
