The Constitutional Court has ruled that there is no justification for the non-recognition of Muslim marriages.

The Apex court upheld an earlier Supreme Court ruling that declared that parts of the Marriage and Divorce Acts are unconstitutional. This as these sections fail to recognise marriages performed under Sharia law.

The Women’s Legal Resource Centre Trust approached the courts.

Guest: Zehir Omar, lawyer for the Association of Muslim Women of South Africa
