Panorama investigates Britain’s Sharia Courts

Domestic violence against women is ignored, claims programme

BBC 1's Panorama on 8th April is an undercover investigation of Britain's Sharia Councils. Publicity for the programme states that in it women claim that they have suffered domestic violence ignored by the councils. Campaigners say that it is time to tackle the parallel legal system which can run counter to British law.

The programme is broadcast at 8.30 pm on 8th April. It is available later on iPlayer.
