We have not seen the authorities' proposals to safeguard religious harmony wrt conversions but this letter is worth a read.
The writer proposes an official hearing like a Family Court whereby the intending convert will make an official declaration of his/her intention and how the children and common property will be treated.
A mere letter will not be adequate but a more public process. Untill the process in the secular court is finalised, there should be no involvement of the Syariah officers.
Let us hope this procedure is approved soon.
PS. Please take the poll on the left column. Thanks.
