‘There are no two legal systems’

‘There are no two legal systems’

 | June 17, 2014
All non-Muslim marriages are registered under civil law and any divorce or custody of the children must be decided by the High Court and not Syariah court.
M ManogaranPETALING JAYA: The Syariah court is not parallel to the civil legal system in this country because it only deals with certain aspects of Islamic law, Malaysia Tamil Sanggam chairman M Manogaran said today.
Manogaran, who is a lawyer, said the Syariah jurisdiction was subsidiary to the secular civil legal system and not equal.
“Syariah law caters for only certain aspects of Muslim issues.
“It now looks like we need to educate our Inspector-General of Police Khalid Abu Bakar on the law,” he said.
He added that Khalid’s stand that children be placed in welfare homes pending resolution of disputes between parents in conversion cases was borne out of ignorance of the law.
“It is an abdication from responsibility and dereliction of duty as the highest ranking police officer.
“By making a stand, the IGP has shown disregard for the welfare of children which is of paramount importance in custody cases.
“Only the court can decide to place a child in custody with a third party.
“In deciding custody, the court will have to consider the welfare of the child under the Laws Reform and Divorce Act 1976,” he added.
Manogaran said all non-Muslim marriages were registered under civil law and any divorce or custody of the children must be decided by the High Court and not Syariah court.
Federal Constitution and the Police Act 1967
“Under the Federal Constitution, the police force is a public service department subject to disciplinary proceedings against errant members, incuding the IGP.
“It is a dereliction of duty if the police do not execute warrants of the courts.
“The IGP has to carry out the duties as required under the Police Act and cannot give his opinion,” he added.
Manogaran said the IGP must now resign to safeguard the good name of the force.
“When it comes to Islam, there is a compromise on duties and responsibilities on the part of the IGP,” he said.

The IGP should now resign for dereliction of duty as he has made himself unfit for the office.
Who does he think he is???
a Judge?, a Cabinet minister?, an MP?, or all of these.
It is sickening to see so much of these nonsense happening in our land!!!
The Bible issue also.
Oh God cleanse our land of all these
