A case due to be heard in the Western Cape High Court on Monday on the states failure to recognize Muslim marriages and discrimination against Muslim women was once again postponed.
Seehaam Samaai, Director of the Women’s Legal Centre says the fight has been going on for more than 20 years, yet Muslim women can’t seem to get their customary weddings legally acknowledged.
The Women’s Legal Centre has organised a protest march which will take place outside the Western Cape High Court on Monday to get their voice heard.
Its a solidarity protest.... they want people to see that it is women who have been affected in communities.— Seehaam Samaai, Director of the Women’s Legal Centre
