Thread on my (limited) understanding of the Darul Qaza (DQ) or the so-called #ShariaCourt & why all the brouhaha is misplaced (as usual!).
Warning : Kindly take off your #Islamophobia tinted glasses before proceeding any further & if you can't, then don't waste your time!
1. Darul Qazas are essentially a forum for ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) ie resolution of civil disputes outside the formal legal system. Arbitration/conciliation/mediation/lok adalats are all forms of ADR.
2. All forms of ADR are widely encouraged by our judiciary & govts, being simpler, faster & cheaper, besides reducing the burden of Courts.

3. DQs are meant to deal ONLY with civil disputes (NOT criminal) ie mostly marital/property/inheritance disputes b/w muslim parties.
