Do we tolerate sexism if it is Muslim?

In Spain they’re living about 1.3 million Muslims and the question that flourish is how can to handle some extreme situations. In some cases tolerated behaviors in the immigrants’ homeland are legally prosecuted, because they transgress fundamental rights in Spain.

One main problem is how to handle with problems that affect the relation between genders. Is the solution to mediate in the situations where the rights of a women has been attacked, denying women their rights in order to avoid the conflicts with the Muslim community or should it be report to the police in order to proceed legally?

What is happening in Spain is that they’re two different perspectives about this issue. Sometimes, locally they´re using the mediation, but at state level the General Director for Religious Affairs pending from the Justice Ministry says that the first step is to offer protection and ensure the right of the victims.
