Kuala Lumpur – “Finally! The Federal Court has ruled that the unilateral conversion of Indira Gandhi’s 3 children is null and void. The community rejoices for this mother who, after 9 year’s of anguish, can now put this matter in the past and be with her legally declared Hindu children” MIC Deputy President Devamany said.
“The whole nation witnessed kindergarten teacher M. Indira Gandhi, challenge the conversion of her three children to Islam by her ex-husband Muhammad Riduan Abdullah. The word of law via Article 12 (4) states that the word “parent” should not be construed literally. In simple words, consent of BOTH parents must be sought to convert a minor. Congratulations to YB M.Kula Segaran on walking through this case until achieving a successful landmark decision” Devamany said in his press statement.
“With this longstanding dispute over, precedence of religious rights has been clearly set. No other parent will be the victim of similar circumstances as Madam Indira, in future. This is a clear indication that our country is heading in the directi direction” Devamany further commented in his statement.
