    Why should some religious Muslims be able to lay out their own version of the law, and rule on cases?

    They should have no power or jurisdiction whatsoever over people in the UK, was shocked when I found out they still operate?

    Thoughts?

    Yes, those courts need to be eradicated. Barbaric, violent, backwards and discriminatory Sharia should not be allowed to operate in a nation whose own legal system disallows many of Sharia’s doctrines.

    err you feel the right to intervene, where law is taken into their own hands, to sometimes forcefully marry in these courts, while not under UK law, where women are afforded few rights, where many aspects are not compatible with UK law - this is where you feel the right to intervene

    Nah. If it's not a real court backed by the crown who cares? People take the law into their own hands because they are criminals. That's not an issue unique to Sharia, Churches or house rules, they have no authority to compel anyone to anything whatsoever. If you take issue with way certain perople treat others then take aim at that, but trying to ban people setting house rules isn't going to happen. You'd kick up FK if you couldn't set rules at home.

    Neighbourhood watch, sharia law, residents association, rules on a sign at a pool hall, house meeting...there's no difference in authority, and you've the same zero chance of banning them.

    Oddly this puts me in mind of the outrage people have over the Bilderberg Group meetings...a bunch of super rich movers'n'shakers getting together to discuss things.....and theres always a cry that it shouldn't be allowed, it should be protested, it should allow reporters, it must provide records ect...and they seem totally unaware they are essentially campaigning to ban people talking in a room :rolleyes:

    true in princple.

    not true, when many many muslims look to these courts above all else, with very real personal consequences for those involved, forced marriage, dissolving unions, they are so much more widespread and the consequences to the individual far more significant... cannot really be compared to house rules....

    IMO looking to these 'courts' is pretty damn stupid but if people really WANT to, I can't stop them, The Shaira has no legal authority to marry or dissolve any legit unions other than ones they make up. There is nothing legally stopping anyone opting out.

    If you want to talk about some of the seriously dodgy choices they've made, or the things people have done because they think it's ok, or the way they've treated people that try to leave...that's another matter, i'm with you. But these things are already crimes, and Shaira has never had any exemption from this. It's EXACTLY comparable to house rules, you cannot stop people declaring rules consentually among themselves.
