You take a group of people, that on whole seem to be having issues, fitting into the socity, even when one of there own is saying that ,

i understand there are jewish courts there also?
that part was new to me.

but it would seem to be that allowing a sharia court, they are pushing back women rights

so yea, i am asking to see what people in the UK think..

It would seem that the simple solution would be to do away with the provision that allows for these "tribunals". But then, the Jewish community would have to give up their tribunals as well.

Don't see what the big deal is - Syaria is actually VERY fair to women iro divorces!

There are actually a version of Jewish courts in this country as well. They only deal with religious matters, marriages, and divorces. A Jewish couple still gets a civil divorce as well but they have to also get a religious divorce for it to be recognized by the Jewish community. It's kind of like the Catholic annulment process and a marriage having to be approved by the priest before the ceremony. I think they are only used by the Orthodox.

I would hope that ALL parties would have to agree before hand to abide by that court. If all parties don't, then it would be decided by English court.

I think that Mr Kahn makes sense. You have to learn the language and integrate into society in order to succeed in that society. I don't think you can do away with religious courts. But I would think that the religious courts have to be within the realm of the laws on the country. Which essentially would do away with any extreme laws against women.

I know that when the Jewish court here in the United States decides civil matters both sides have to be Jewish and agree to abide by the Jewish courts decision. It is a form of binding arbitration with the Jewish court being the arbiter, which is why the judgement is recognized by civil authorities.
The Jewish court in this country has no jurisdiction in criminal matters and has never sought such jurisdiction.

As I understand it, all religious courts, tribunals, ceremonies, contracts etc etc in the Uk have to conform to the overall country law. The new announcements make it easier for Moslems to get mortgages and loans too, as they have special rules on moneylending, which are far more protective of the borrower than normal and forbid excessive interest rates.

I think that there should be one court in a country. I think that it causes division among a nation to have seperate courts for seperate peoples. It doesn't make sense to me.

I couldn't agree more.

Me too. This can't do anything but undermine the law of the land.
