No such thing as rape in marriage.

A senior Muslim cleric who runs the country's largest network of sharia courts has sparked controversy by claiming that there is no such thing as rape within marriage.

Sheikh Maulana Abu Sayeed, president of the Islamic Sharia Council in Britain, said that men who rape their wives should not be prosecuted because "sex is part of marriage". And he claimed that many married women who alleged rape were lying.

"In Islamic sharia, rape is adultery by force. So long as the woman is his wife, it cannot be termed as rape. It is reprehensible, but we do not call it rape."

In it's efforts to appease Islam (Dhimmitude), the British Government is forgetting one thing. It is neglecting to protect Muslim women and girls. The longer this is allowed to continue, the more they will suffer as a result.

Other countries in Europe have made a concerted effort to ensure that the human rights of these women are protected and I am appalled that the UK (under the guise of freedom), is still allowing Sharia Courts to operate.

This only proves that Sharia is clearly in conflict with EU and UK laws and should be banned.


  1. Ah that old chestnut rearing its head again Sue. Marvellous isn't it yet I doubt the UK will do anything about it. They're encouraging Sharia law as far as I can see.

  2. It's not right Subrosa, we all know that these laws favour men. What a waste of time all this equality crap is if we can't do this simple thing.

  3. My recent post on rape agreed that rape is whenever one party is non-consensual. These neanderthals really must not get a toehold in this country.

    Oh, they have. Well, no further then.

  4. Just so as we know what we're talking about here, care to define the act of rape?

    Before you jump in with the "Everyone knows what rape is" comments, bare in mind that in many peoples eyes (and there's cases that went to court backing this up) rape falls anywhere between waking up after a night on the lash next to the office saddo and being found naked in an alley, beaten stupid and bleeding from every oriface.

  5. It took us a long time (1991!) to even classify rape within marriage as a crime in British law. And now, for fear of upsetting a few mediaeval clerics, we are returning to the 'good old days'. What was the women's movement all about if not this? And why are the Left not demonstrating in the streets?

  6. I know that the subject of "crying rape" is contentious but we mustn't allow it to stop actual rape from being prosecuted.

    Remember, these "men" are self proclaimed misogynists.

  7. Wot Richard said, we are not so far down this road ourselves but the law is the Law. So come on libtards, which is more important, womens/human rights or hard core multi-culti?

    In Victorian England
    "• Legal disability: A husband could be held legally responsible for his wife's actions, and was responsible for her debts." Outrageous!

  8. " So come on libtards, which is more important, womens/human rights or hard core multi-culti?"


  9. Perhaps us women see this differently???

  10. I wouldn't presume to think on behalf of women, but differently how? Either rape in marriage is OK, or it isn't. And either this applies to all of us, or only some of us, depending on religious belief. My view is that it isn't OK, ever, and it applies to all of us. Might a woman's view be different from that? (That might sound sarky, but it's not meant to be. I am genuinely curious.)

  11. Well yeah but not but.

    Let us agree that rape is wrong (by definition) so rape in marriage is also wrong.

    But it is the Muslim women themselves who choose to be part of a sub-society which says this is OK, ergo in their view it is not wrong and because so much of this relies on spoken evidence in court, there is no way to make a charge stick unless the woman concerned is 100% committed to doing so, and is prepared to live with the fact that she has a less than evens chance of securing a conviction.

    Let's be honest, any Muslim woman who actually went to the police about this, her life would not be worth living or probably in actual danger of being beaten up or killed.

    I mean, there's only so much 'protecting' that the liberal westerners can do if they don't want to be protected.

  12. Mark, it's not a case of "if they don't want to be protected", it's peer/family influence and pressure ... as it is with forced marriages.

    Sue, nice blog ... added you to blogroll.

    Bit of a tricky one for the lefties, though.

    It's going to take some imagination to work out which white bloke is to blame for this. Thw why is going to be tricky, if they bother with a reason.

    I have faith though, I'm certain that in some way I (and all other white males) am to blame for this...I just need some progressive egalitarian to explain it at me.

    I'm guessing that this is the BBC lead news story, or right after the 'another laba luvvie in the dock' headline?

  14. Equality mean equal16 October 2010 at 13:00

    I was told by a muslim friend that the koran is clear that

    1) God punishes Men and that Men are responsible for disciplining Women.

    2) A Woman's word is worth half that of a Man's.

    You're not just battling tradition, it's a clear part of the tenants of the faith - best of luck ladies.

    (FWIW I hope you win, but then as an evil white man, opressor etc I have no right to an opinion)
