Bill for Hindu Marriage Act to be tabled soon , Pakistan

Monday, March 01, 2010

 ISLAMABAD: The Bill for the registration of the marriages of over 2 million people from Hindu fraternity living in the country would be tabled in the National Assembly within the next three months, Geo News reported Monday.

It should be mentioned that there is no system in the country for the registration of marriages in minorities including Hindus, Sikhs and Bha’is.

Federal Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti told the National Assembly that the government was yet to promulgate the Hindu Marriage Act because the Hindu community was still following centuries-old traditions while solemnising marriages.

In response to a question raised by Ms Parveen Massod Bhatti, he said that marriages of Hindus were not registered. However, he said, the ministry had initiated a consultation process to come up with a legislation.

Bhatti said the government intends to bring the Minority Protection Bill within next three months after consultations with the representatives of minorities in this connection under auspices of the Ministry of Minorities.
