A Muslim cleric from Leeds is to play a leading role in a review into of the use of Sharia law in England and Wales.
Qari Asim, imam at a mosque in the Hyde Park area, is advising a panel of experts that will lead a review launched by Home Secretary Theresa May today.
Mrs May announced the process as part of the government’s counter-extremism strategy.
She said there was evidence some Sharia councils encouraged "discriminatory and unacceptable" practices, including forced marriage and divorces that are unfair to women.
“A number of women have reportedly been victims of what appear to be discriminatory decisions taken by Sharia councils, and that is a significant concern. There is only one rule of law in our country, which provides rights and security for every citizen."
