Talaq and getting an Islamic divorce in the UK

We are advising increasing numbers of Muslim people about talaqs and getting a divorce in England. It is quite a complicated area as the UK law, bascially, does not recognise a talaq pronounced in the UK but will if it is dealt with in e.g. Pakistan.


(A “talaq”, by the way, is effectively an Islamic divorce)

There seems to be something of a backlash against it here, I wonder if that is because it can only be pronounced by men?

Should we really be telling people how to live and not fully respecting their laws?
