PETALING JAYA: It is the right step in the right direction. That is the view of non-governmental organisations about the Government’s plan to amend the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act to resolve problems linked to child custody conflicts between Muslim and non-Muslim parents.

The amendments would ensure divorce matters involving civil marriages must be settled in a civil court even if one of the spouses converts to Islam.
