The Australian Courts should recognize their own Australian laws on divorce for all it's people. If the Islamic communities want to instill their
religious courts, fine, let them....but, their decisions would only be good for within the religous institution....so, if the Islamic court refused to
grant a divorce that the Australian courts already has, or does in the future, well, the couple still is legally divorced, but the religous community
may chose not to acknowledge that fact. I believe we allow the same thing here in america, if the catholic church choses not to accept a divorce and
remarriage, I believe they sanction them in some way, and in the jewish faith, they will not acknowledge a marriage with a christian, at least they
didn't back in the 80's....
that is their chose....but.....
1. anything that is illegal in the country, is still illegal, whatever their religous court says.
2. the people have to volunteerily accept the decisions of that court for them to be acceptably, otherwise, they can just fall back on Australian law,
and their decisions.
unfortunately, this isn't what they want.
and, well, it would also probably increase the instances of premature death of inslamic women by unnatural causes.
