    I really don’t want to sound sensationalist. But if you have a situation of violence and safety of victims is in question because the culprit cannot be kept away from them, doesn’t that make for a horror movie?

    A few interesting notes:

    In Islam the custody of children generally goes to the father (for girls at a slightly older age than boys). Men are considered the head of household.

    The British government is not doing anything to stop this, for fear of looking “Islamophobic”. As is usually the case, it is political correctness run amok, turning into racism. There is no way that the UK would tolerate something like this if (most) victims were white women.

    Sadly, even the  victims won’t agree that there is something wrong with the Islamic legal code; they just say that the Islamic councils are “misapplying” it. Such is the power of denial.
