Don't make it any easier, SIS says after mufti-judge meet on facilitating polygamy

Modified 7 Jun 2020, 4:35 am

Women rights advocacy group Sisters in Islam (SIS) said authorities should seek to make rules relating to polygamy stricter instead of easier due to various problems arising from such marriages that have adversely impacted women and children.

It said this in response to a meeting between Perlis Mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin and Perlis syariah chief judge Ibrahim Deris yesterday, which the former said had discussed making the practice of polygamy easier, among others.
