Stop Sharia Law in Britain: Lets Have One Law for All

Comment 3rd July 2010

Sharia courts discriminate against women and many women will feel pressured into using these courts.

Women’s rights campaigner Yasmin Rehman said: “We Muslims have been a part of the UK for many, many years but the generations before me did not feel the need for or call for segregation in the way that is being demanded now. At the beginning of my career as a women’s rights advocate there was no need to apply for a certificate of Khula in divorce cases. Muslim women are now being told that divorces under the English legal system are not valued or recognised without a certificate of Khula – and should they remarry without this they will be committing Zina – a ‘crime’ punishable by death in many Muslim countries. This is not a view shared by all Islamic scholars but a view that is being pushed through the Islamic councils and tribunals across the UK.”

Why does this matter?

It's important if we want to have a civilised society where everyone is truely equal and religion is just an optional belief system that people can have freedom from.
