ROW OVER MARRYING AGE OF MUSLIMS

Inside India

The Kerala government’s 14 June circular, which legalises the marriage of Muslim boys and girls when they get matured and describes no age criterion, has created furore among the citizens. The circular, issued to the civic bodies in the state, has based its legality on the Muslims Marriage Act 1957 which according to many does not exist. Many other believe that the circular will promote child marriage as well as being against the Constitution of India. On the other hand, James Varghese, the principal secretary at Local Self-Government Department which had issued the circular, said it was issued as per the direction of Law Department, adding, such matters of the Muslim community are regarded in accordance with their Personal Law. The Muslim scholars are of the opinion that the marriage should be validated at the very age when a boy/ girl get maturity as, according to them, it will reduce many a serious crime and offence.
