A Separate Justice System For Muslims

Daily Mail

When it comes to avoiding a ban for speeding, the courts hear every excuse in the book.

But yesterday one motorist offered what must be a unique reason why he should keep his licence.

Mohammed Anwar said a ban would make it difficult to commute between his two wives and fulfil his matrimonial duties.

His lawyer told a Scottish court the Muslim restaurant owner has one wife in Motherwell and another in Glasgow – he is allowed up to four under his religion – and sleeps with them on alternate nights.

He also needed his driving licence to run his restaurant in Falkirk, Stirlingshire.

Airdrie Sheriff Court had heard that Anwar was caught driving at 64mph in a 30mph zone in Glasgow, fast enough to qualify for instant disqualification.

Anwar admitted the offence, but Sheriff John C. Morris accepted his plea not to be banned and allowed him to keep his licence.

Instead, he was fined £200 and given six penalty points.

From everything I can find, it is against the law in Scotland to engage in polygamy. If that is wrong, let me know. If this was a die hard Morman Mormon (it helps to spell check when doing a fast post because the server is hosing off and on) claiming his religion allowed multiple wives, do you think the court would accept that? Highly doubtful. But, with Muslims, it seems that the law is being changed to accomodate Muslims.

Of course, maybe Sheriff John C. Morris was worried about being killed.
