9780195479683: Muslim Family Law, Secular Courts and Muslim Women of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh

Muslim family law is based on patriarchal family organization and male privileges, leading to legal and social discrimination against women, which is incompatible with contemporary notions of gender equality and social justice. By giving a liberal and pro-active interpretation to this law within the Islamic framework, the South Asian judiciary has shown that it is possible to adapt it to the needs of a forward-looking Muslim society. The book examines the extent to which judicial interpretation has liberalized this law, enlarged the dimensions of Muslim women's rights and contributed to secure gender equality and social justice to them. The book also argues that in the absence of legislation reflecting the ijma or consensus of the Muslim community, judicial activism is the only alternative agent of social change.

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, Pakistan, 2011. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. The classical Shari‘a law on family relations is based on patriarchal family organization and male privileges, leading to legal and social discrimination against women, which is incompatible with present-day notions of gender equality and social justice. The discrimination is especially pronounced in such vital matters as marriage, divorce, maintenance, guardianship and custody of children and inheritance; and yet, these are the institutions which form the bedrock of security and stability in family life. In view of the sensitiveness of the issue of family law reform, the legislative and executive organs of the state are reluctant to address these discriminations. But the courts cannot refuse to adjudicate, when social justice issues are addressed to them; for, to deny relief is to nullify the judicial process and negate justice. In an admirable display of scholarship and creativity, the South Asian judiciary has shown that, by giving a liberal and pro-active interpretation to the rules of Muslim family law, it is possible to adapt many of them to the needs of a modern society, from within the Islamic legal framework. The book examines the extent to which the proactive roles of the courts have liberalized these laws; enlarged the dimensions of women’s rights; and contributed to secure equality of rights and social justice to Muslim women. The book also deals with conservative opposition to judicial law- making and locates further areas where judicial activism may be useful. As India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have inherited the same legal traditions, the book argues that they can share one another’s post-colonial experiences. Furthermore, the book finds that in the absence of legislation reflecting the ijma or consensus of the Muslim community, judicial activism is the only alternative agent of social change.
