Treatment of Muslim Women by Sharia Courts in the UK

Join the debate with Nihal at 10. He's asking, are Muslim women treated unfairly by Sharia courts in the UK? Tonight's Panorama has uncovered new evidence showing some Sharia councils in Britain putting Muslim women "at risk" by pressuring them to stay in abusive marriages. Critics say that the Islamic rulings aren't always in the interests of the women concerned and often don't comply with British law. Have you used the services of a Sharia court before? And if so, how did you feel you were treated? After 11, ITV's IPL presenter Shonali Nagrani talks to Nihal about the ongoing series. And after midday, musician Nadine Shah talks about her music.
