Britain Officially Recognized Sharia Law

A British court has recently recognized Sharia law and polygamy. The Telegraph reports:

Sharia law has been recognised by a British court for the first time after a judge made a landmark divorce ruling which could change the way Islamic marriage and divorce works in the UK.

The High Court ruled that an estranged couple’s Islamic faith marriage, conducted in a ceremony called a nikah, falls under British matrimonial law despite it not being legally recognised as such.

It means Nasreen Akhtar will be free to bring her case to the divorce court and claim her share of the assets of her marriage where she previously would not have been able to.

In the high-profile case Mrs Akhtar and her businessman husband Mohammed Shabaz Khan were deemed to have a valid marriage.

While this court case in itself might not be a “creeping sharia” disaster, it might set a precedent for the future.
