MMDA MUST BE REFORMED COMPREHENSIVELY
The MMDA must be reformed comprehensively to guarantee equality and justice for all Muslims, particularly Muslim women and girls. Muslim women have been the most affected by the MMDA and Quazi court system, and the mandate for reform is principally derived from their call for changes to MMDA. Therefore, women’s experiences of the law, its implementation procedure and their just expectations must inform and shape the reform agenda. While the substantive law must ensure equality and justice for all, procedural law must be sensitive to needs of all members of the community including women.
In the current reform initiatives which are underway, Muslim women must have a place at the table. Their voices and demands should be heard and engaged with as the key constituency that is most affected. Here are our KEY DEMANDS FOR MMDA REFORM:
