…comes this from the Archbishop of Canterbury:
There is a place for finding what would be a constructive accommodation with some aspects of Muslim law as we already do with aspects of other kinds of religious law.
It would be quite wrong to say that we could ever license a system of law for some community which gave people no right of appeal, no way of exercising the rights that are guaranteed to them as citizens in general.
But there are ways of looking at marital disputes, for example, which provide an alternative to the divorce courts as we understand them.
In some cultural and religious settings, they would seem more appropriate.
