Sharia courts in some countries allow private divorces, including the “triple talaq” divorce, where a man can divorce a woman by saying “talaq” [divorce in Arabic] three times. The triple talaq is not mentioned in Islamic law or the Koran and most Islamic countries have banned the practice.

Sharia courts in some countries allow private divorces, including the “triple talaq” divorce, where a man can divorce a woman by saying “talaq” [divorce in Arabic] three times. The triple talaq is not mentioned in Islamic law or the Koran and most Islamic countries have banned the practice.
The case centred on a couple living in Germany who got married in Syria in 1999, DW reports. In 2013, the husband ended the marriage using the triple talaq method in a Sharia court in Latakia, Syria. The wife agreed to the divorce in writing, but later contested it in Germany, after the husband sought its recognition in a Munich court.
The court ruled the Rome III regulation applied, an EU regulation that dictates which law should be used in cross-border divorces.
“Where both spouses have dual nationality, the decisive factor is their effective nationality within the meaning of national law. At the time of the divorce at issue, their effective nationality was Syrian," the Munich court

Thousands protest against rightwing government in Poland

Thousands of people have joined anti-government demonstrations across Poland, as a divided country marked the 35th anniversary of the imposition of martial law by the then communist regime.
Leaders of the Committee for the Defence of Democracy (KOD) – which organised the “citizens’ strike” – argue that the illiberal agenda of the ruling rightwing Law and Justice party (PiS) threatens to reverse democratic gains made since 1989.
Anti-government demonstrators carrying Polish and European flags gathered at the former headquarters of the Polish Communist party and marched to the nearby headquarters of Law and Justice, in an explicit attempt to draw a connection between the authoritarian rule during the Soviet-imposed Polish People’s Republic and the current government’s ongoing attempts to control or dismantle the country’s independent democratic institutions.

The Wait is Over: Here’s the Melodramatic Trailer for God’s Not Dead 3 

Since these movies usually take a real issue, exaggerate it beyond belief, then pretend it’s a real example of “Christian persecution,” it sounds like a controversy resembling what we saw last year at Oklahoma’s East Central University, where a university-run chapel was the target of a complaint by a church/state separation group. The school initially promised to remove the cross on top of the building along with the crosses and bibles inside, turning it into a space for everyone instead of a default Christian church, but they later reversed course. (The movie was likely written before that incident happened.)

British-born Islamic preacher is crying because women in the UK dress inappropriately and do haraam things. It breaks his heart and therefore he avoids going to public places.
