‘Amend syariah law, curb child marriages’


KUALA LUMPUR: A former syariah judge has called for the syariah laws to be amended to curb child marriages.

Former syariah head judge and Terengganu mufti Datuk Ismail Yahya said the minimum age for Muslim girls to marry was 16, but girls under that age could still be married if the state’s mentri besar approved the union.
