U.K.Sharia Courts: 'Rape is impossible within marriage'

The Islamic cleric in charge of the UK's mandatory sharia courts claims that under sharia law that it is impossible for men to rape their wives.

Sheikh Maulana Abu Sayeed, who is president of the Islamic Sharia Council, told a website that "sex is part of marriage" and suggested that husbands who commit such acts should not be prosecuted.

"Clearly there cannot be any rape within the marriage," he told The Samosa website. "Maybe aggression, maybe indecent activity... Because when they got married, the understanding was that sexual intercourse was part of the marriage, so there cannot be anything against sex in marriage. Of course, if it happened without her desire, that is no good, that is not desirable."

Rape within marriage has been illegal in Britain since 1991.

Sharia courts are mandatory in the UK for Muslims in matters of family law..which essentially means that an abused wife in the UK had better forget about justice.

please helps me write more gooder!
