Why Can’t Muslim Women Have Four Spouses, Asks Kerala High Court Judge

Published on 7 March, 2016 at 3:08 pm By

Kerala high court judge B. Kamal Pasha asked why can’t Muslim women have four husbands while the men enjoyed the same privilege under the Muslim personal law.

Speaking at a seminar organised by NGO NISA, a Kozhikode-based progressive Muslim women’s forum, Pasha said, “The Muslim personal law had adopted various tenets from the Koran but refused to adhere to the Koran when it came to women and their rights.”

He also took a jibe at religious leaders for establishing hegemony of men. Though many countries have banned polygamy, it is still prevalent in India.

“Religious heads should do self-introspection whether they are eligible to pronounce one-sided verdicts. People should also think about the eligibility of persons who are pronouncing such verdicts,” said Pasha.

Recently, Supreme Court has accepted a writ petition against discrimination meted out to Muslim women under Sharia law.



It was filed NISA’s president V.P. Zuhra who said that ‘the Sharia law was against the Constitution and un-Islamic’.

“Personal law is loaded with discrimination. Besides denying equality, it also denies women’s right to property and other issues,” said Pasha.

The high court judge further said that it was unfait to oppose uniform civil code. “Even the highest court is a bit reluctant to interfere in this. Women should come forward to end this injustice,” he added.
