    Being part of this court is optional, they can just tell them to fuck of and not be a part of it, also it is no different to the Jewish Beth Din courts so i don't see why you all have a your cry face on, it's not as if it can effect anyone that does not want it to.

    That's because men are religiously obliged to provide for the family. A woman is not. Any money a woman comes into, whether from inheritance or a job, is hers to keep and do with how she pleases.

    But from experience, I know they don't always do that.

    A woman from a deeply religious Muslim family telling her husband to fuck off when he tells her about splitting their loot in a Sharia court? Severed social ties, anyone? And I do not believe for a second those courts are fair. Imams (whom I'm presuming are the judges) aren't known for their willingness to split loot equally between men and women. I do know it's optional to go to the court, but I'm pretty sure there'll be a few who don't do so willingly. In addition, if you read the article, you'll see women weren't getting the same inheritance as men, and that's just an example.

    The societal pressures in religious sub-cultures can be very strong. A lot of people are going to feel forced into choosing a sharia court to avoid being outlawed by their own sub-community. We'd be foolish to think that everyone who attends a sharia court will do so voluntarily.

    True, but Glasgow's got enough sectarian violence as it is. Us Christians are beating the shit out of each other, nevermind getting the Muslims involved!

    Not the same amount of social pressure, I believe. And without being an expert, I believe they're more gender-neutral than Sharia courts.

    Lol, I didnt even know about this..

    Well a few months back there was something about this in the news about how some court cases were fucked up because of this but I did'nt expect the law to be adopted.

    I'm all for a diverse culture and shit, but you have to draw the line somewhere for god's sake.
