KUALA LUMPUR: The High Court here was told that the Perlis Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIPs) had direct legal interest to intervene in a divorce petition between a single mother, Loh Siew Hong, and ex-husband Muhammad Nagashwaran Muniandy, who converted to Islam with their three children.

MAIPs lawyer Mohamed Haniff Khatri Abdulla said MAIPs had a statutory duty to look after the wellbeing, education and guidance of Muslim converts, as well as offer financial support from tithe funds and other assistance allowed by syarak (Islamic law).
