German judge applies Sharia in divorce case
Posted by rantingkraut on March 21, 2007
A German judge has denied a request for an early divorce, pointing out that the Quran gives husbands the right to beat their wives. The request for a divorce prior to completing a one year separation period was denied to a woman of Moroccan descent since, in the judge’s opinion, the violence she suffered at the hands of her husband was normal by the standards of her native cultural environment. The judge has since been taken off the case and there are at least demands for disciplinary proceedings against her.
