Cabinet nod for MMDA amendments

The Cabinet of Ministers has granted approval to amend the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act (MMDA).

A joint proposal in this regard had been presented to Cabinet by Post, Postal Services and Muslim Religious Affairs Minister Abdul Haleem and Justice and Prison Reforms Minister Thalatha Athukorale on Tuesday.

The amendment of the MMDA has been a much-needed move and there have been many requests by the Muslim Community and the Human Rights Activists as well.

Accordingly, facts such as the age of marriage, the registration process and the way of expressing the consent for the marriage are expected to be amended under the amendments.
