    My mother ran a support group for women in the Asian community of our area that were victims of domestic violence. All of them that turned up (about 30) were Muslim. They are very apprehensive about attending the sessions. They often had very poor English despite living in England for a long time as a result of not really being allowed to integrate with the community. I'm not necessarily saying this is a consequence of horrible individuals interpretation of Islam, this typically occurs with sufferers of domestic abuse.

    I don't really know the stats or how useful they'd be. I assume they'd be seriously under reported
