Pakistan approves Hindu Marriage Bill
We are sharing this news posted in Madhyaman on 11 February, 2016.
Since Pakistan’s founding nearly seven decades ago, Hindu women have not been able to register their marriages causing struggles to women’s identity.
After decades of delay and inaction, the Special Committee of the Parliament unanimously approved the Hindu Marriage Bill on 9 February 2016 which is likely to be made into a law after passing through the National Assembly. This Bill is hoped to resolve minority women issues including inheritance rights and transfer of properties.
