Oh Britain. Sometimes I think you may actually be worse than Sweden.
AN ESTIMATED 100,000 British Muslim women are being duped into sham Sharia marriage – leaving them exposed to abusive and cheating husbands.
The massive figure highlights a worrying trend of young British Muslim couples opting for such arrangements – which are NOT recognised under British law – and leave men with the polygamous option of having up to four ‘wives’.
Sham ceremonies which are not legally recognized can leave vulnerable women oppressed, with no rights to a fair share of assets if the relationship ends. Under the strictures of Sharia law many others are forced by their communities to return to abusive and sometimes violent husbands.
A leading lawyer dealing with Sharia cases said a “huge rise” in such ceremonies among the 2.7million-strong British Muslim population was behind the growth of “secret polygamy.”
Aina Khan told The Times: “Probably a quarter of all couples I see involve polygamy issues.
“There has been a huge rise in recent years because people can have a secret Nikah [Islamic marriage] and no one will know about it.”
She estimated that were “potentially 100,000 Muslims” without legal recognition.
Couples hoping to find a way around no sex before marriage or have a fear of British family courts, which presume assets should be split equally in the event of a divorce, often turn to Sharia marriage.
A growth of parallel marriage could also be driven by Muslims aged below 30, who were becoming more religious, she said.
The stark figures come amid fears that parts of the British Muslim community are being targeted by Islamic State (ISIS) recruiters who promote a strict adherence to Sharia law.
This week it emerged that a family of 12 from Luton had travelled to Syria to join the ISIS terror group.
In March, Home Secretary Theresa Mayordered a review into Sharia Councils, saying: “We know enough to know we have a problem but not to know the full extent.”
Ms May said there was evidence to suggest divorced wives had been left “in penury” or forced to suffer “abusive relationships”.
But Amra Bone, Britain’s first Islamic judge on a Sharia Council, denied its courts discriminated against women.
And instead claimed Sharia council’s were there to help women out of “failed marriages”.
Mrs Bone said: “We apply Sharia principles within the law of the land. We are a voluntary body and can’t make orders – we just advise.
“People don’t want us to be judgmental.”
She also denied that Muslim men ‘marry’ up to four wives.
Mrs Bone added: “Most men will tell you, ‘I cant look after one wife, never mind more than one’.
“But we cannot – and the Government cannot – ask Muslims not to have more than one wife. People have a right to decide for themselves.”
That last line really says it all. You see, it doesn’t matter what the law of the land is in Britain. Muslims answer to what they consider to be a higher law… the law of God (or at least what they believe is the law of God). Therefore, they’re never going to respect any “man made law” which contradicts “God’s law”. It is their belief that they are entitled to marry four women if they want, and therefore they will do exactly that, with or without your support.
Seeing as they’re going to do so anyway, you may as well just let them do it. Under the current set up, only one of their wives will be considered their legal spouse. As a result, if they get all four wives pregnant…actually I take that back. Not “if”, WHEN they get all four wives pregnant, three of them will be considered single mothers, and will be entitled to welfare support for their children, while all you hard working native British taxpayers will be unable to afford to have any children of your own. Not that it matters of course if their birth rates are higher and their population replaces yours, seeing as all human beings are 100% equal in every way so it makes no difference what the demographics of Britain are in the future. Actually, there is one difference that I should mention. White people are inferior to every other demographic because they’re all biologically inclined to be hate filled racists. So you see, it is actually a good thing that that they’ll end up replacing you. If you have any problems with this and believe that if they want to have multiple wives, they should return to a Muslim country in order to do so, you’re just proving my point about how white people are biologically driven to be racists, as there’s no other logical explanation as to why you would be opposed to this.
