No Sharia divorce in UK: Muslim told to pay ex-wife maintenance even though he owes her nothing according to Islamic law
Sharia and Western law are incompatible and the conflicts will inevitably grow, but the Infidels are standing their ground on this one in the UK. For now. At least until they get hit with a cascade of “Islamophobia” charges. Dr. Zaid al-Saffar is already playing the victim. “You can’t use sharia law in divorce deal: Muslim hospital consultant told to pay ex-wife maintenance despite claims he owes her nothing under Islamic rules,” by Steve Doughty for the Daily Mail, July 25 (thanks to David):
A Muslim hospital consultant was told yesterday that he must pay his ex-wife maintenance even though under Islamic rules he believes he owes her nothing.
A judge told Dr Zaid Al-Saffar that he must follow “˜the rule in this country” and share his money.
The Appeal Court decision means Dr Al-Saffar must pay Â£60,000 to his former wife, academic Hanan Al-Saffar.
The ruling sounded a warning to Muslim couples who believe their marriages are ordered according to sharia law and agree to be bound by Islamic courts.
Lord Justice Ward told Dr Al-Saffar: “˜The rule in this country is that you share and the starting point is equal division.
“˜You came out of the marriage without having made your wife any substantial capital payment.”
He added: “˜Life is sometimes hard; do not be consumed with bitterness.”
But Dr Al-Saffar said after the case: “˜By playing the system and pretending to be a victim she got everything, which I think is totally unfair.
“˜Family law in this country is biased against Muslim people.”…
Family law in Sharia states is biased against women.
