"British Muslims after polygamous marriages. Illegal under UK law. Legal under Shariah law.

The court has the power under the 2003 Communications Act if it considers that the twitter message "by means of a public electronic communications network a message or other matter that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing nature". A complaint would need to be made to the police. Please rate positively - thanks
