Assam: The law allowing Muslims to marry at an early age is over

The state government of Assam says it is repealing the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Registration Act, 1935. The decision will be effective from Saturday.

In the Indian state of Assam, a colonial-era law that allowed Muslims to marry at an early age was abolished .

The abrogation of the law just months before general elections in the country is being seen as a controversial move.

A uniform criminal law prevails throughout India, but religious communities have different so-called 'personal laws' dealing with matters of marriage, divorce, adoption and inheritance, often based on different cultural customs.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling party, the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party), which is also in power in Assam, is campaigning for a uniform civil code that will replace the personal laws of various religions.

The state government of Assam says it is repealing the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Registration Act, 1935. The decision will be implemented from next week. Muslims constitute 34% of Assam's population. It is one of the states with a large Muslim population.

Muslim leaders accused the BJP of trying to divide the electorate ahead of the May elections.

State Chief Minister Hemant Biswa Sharma says that the law includes provisions allowing registration of marriage even if the bride and groom have not reached the legal age of 18 and 21 years. This action is another important step towards banning child marriage in Assam.'

"This is a very important step in the journey towards a uniform civil code in the state," said state assembly member Jayant Mulla Barwa, who belongs to the BJP. Talking to reporters, he said that after the repeal of this law, Muslim marriages in the state will now be conducted under the Special Marriage Act, which is an all-India law and generally registers inter-faith marriages under it.

'Under this (repealed law) we used to see registration of child marriages. For boys below 21 years of age or girls below 18 years of age. So this is a big step whereby we will be able to end child marriage completely.'

The Assam government is also considering banning polygamy in the state and making it a criminal act. Sharma has spoken against this practice several times. Most religions in India prohibit it, but Muslim men can legally have four wives under personal law.

Asked by Reuters on Sunday if the northeastern state would introduce a uniform civil code before general elections, Sharma said, "Not immediately."

Many Muslims in Assam trace their roots to the neighboring Bengali-speaking Muslim-majority country of Bangladesh, while tensions in the state sometimes arise between Muslims and ethnic Assamese, who are mostly Hindu.

Opposition Muslim leaders said the repeal of the colonial-era law was discriminatory.

Badruddin Ajmal, head of the All India United Democratic Front and a legislator from Assam, told reporters on Saturday that they want to divide their electorate by inciting Muslims, who will not allow Muslims.

"This is the first step towards a uniform civil code, but it will end the BJP government in Assam."

Additional assistance has been sought from news organizations in the preparation of this report.
