Custom of Depriving Women of Inheritance Rights Challenged in Federal Shariat Court

Islamabad: The practice of depriving women of their inheritance rights has been challenged in the Federal Shariat Court.

The petition regarding this matter has been filed by Syeda Fauzia Jalal Shah through Advocate Hammad Saeed Dar. The petition makes the Federation of Pakistan a party through the Federal Ministry of Law and Justice.

The petition seeks to nullify any customs that deprive women of their rightful inheritance or force women, under customary pressure, to renounce their share or abandon their inheritance, or continue to face obstacles in claiming their rightful inheritance.

The petition states that all such affected women can become parties in the case mentioned above. In this regard, affected women, in the public interest and for their rights, can become parties related to any such custom in the Federal Shariat Court and bring it to the court’s notice.
