On May 2, Britain's House of Commons debated the operation of Sharia Councils in the United Kingdom. (full text of debate). MP John Howell said in part:
Sharia councils provide a form of alternative dispute resolution.... Members of the Muslim community voluntarily consent to accept the religious jurisdiction of sharia councils. Marital issues and the granting of Islamic marriage divorces account for about 90% of their work. They also advise in matters of law, including issues of inheritance, probate and wills and Islamic commercial law contracts, and they provide mediation, counselling and religious ruling services.
Sharia councils are not considered part of the British legal system. They are not courts and their decisions are not legally binding. However, despite having no judicial authority, some councils see themselves as authoritative on religious issues, and the power of sharia councils lies in how they are perceived by their communities.
A significant number of Muslims do not have a marriage recognised under British law.... [S]ome Muslim women therefore have no option of obtaining a civil divorce. Some women may have no other option but to obtain a religious divorce, for which the judgment of a sharia council is normally required.
Law & Religion UK has a more extensive summary of the debate.
This will not end well.
If they are debating it, then it means they are determining a way to cave and sell out the infidels!!!!
So, they seek Common Law divorce.
What fools these mortals be!
Freedom is under assault in Britain and they are seeking terms of surrender to Muslim conqueror.
What would Edward the Confessor say?
Ha, ha, ha. Stupid Brits are slitting their own throats. Thank goodness this nonsense could never happen in the good ol' USA. Oh, wait. There's a "Muslim Community Patrol" in NYC. That might be worse.
End this evil NOW.
Good. I hope it is a ####ing disaster.
I hope English women marry muzzies and are subject to it.
While May drinks yea with Merkel and they both laugh.
Didnt know about this.
Dont worry if I ever see one I will give them my Italian salute and tell them to go #### themselves.
>>A significant number of Muslims do not have a marriage recognised under British law.
Pologamy can be a problem.
Child brides can be a problem.
Islamic law can be a problem.

There were some lesbians who came to Texas to try to force the courts to recognize their marriage so they could get a divorce.
So much for the lie that it’s about “love” and “marriage equality”.
If they want sharia, they should move to Iran.
Cannot say it will end well but in NYC rabbinical Beth Din tribunals have been operating in matters of marriage and divorce, and contract disputes . NYC and other jurisdictions have long deferred to these courts in these matters.
The Eloi unexpectedly protected the Morlocks from rogue Eloi as they themselves prepared to be eaten...
Ahh, no. If you reject the authority of Sharia in favor of secular government, then you are an apostate. Under Sharia, the penalty for apostasy is death.
Well isn’t that nice: The Council of Europe and the House of Commons are extremely concerned about sharia marriage and the rights of Muslim women.
Death to apostates, homosexuals or unsubmitting infidels, not so much.

That NY Muslim patrol car closely resembles a NYPD patrol car. The same color scheme, and the same type of door insignia. I don’t know how they can get away with that. You might have seen one, dp0622, and not even realized it.
Here’s an article about this, from Feb. 2019. The Muslims say they need patrol cars because of a “hate campaign” against Islam. Yeah, right.
Muslims permit marriage between first cousins. British law does not. How will that work out?
” I don’t know how they can get away with that.” ?
Srsly? It is promoted by the city of New York.
