Cross-bench peer Baroness Cox raised several “shocking” cases of Sharia law “discriminating” against Muslim women – and claimed it could even fuel extremism.
She revealed cases of men divorcing their wives by simply saying “I divorce you” three times under the “quasi-legal system”.
She said: “My Muslim friends tell me that in some communities with high polygamy and divorce rates, men may have up to 20 children each.
“Clearly, youngsters growing up in dysfunctional families may be vulnerable to extremism and demography may affect democracy.”
Baroness Cox also claimed a 63-year-old man asked a gynaecologist to “repair the hymen” of his 23-year-old wife so she could remarry a man a who needed a British visa.
He reportedly stood to make a staggering £10,000 for his role in the agreement.
She said a loophole in the 2010 Equality Act allows Sharia courts to practice “gender discrimination”.
