Divorce Family Law

Difference between Talaq and Khulla

Talaq is the Islamic term for divorce, which is commonly used in all Part of Pakistan including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Hyderabad and Thatta. A talaq is used to end a contract of marriage the nikah, under the terms of Islamic sharia (which is also adopted under the Pakistani Laws). It should be noted that Talaq is a right given by a Husband and Wife can only exercise the right of Talaq if the same is granted to her in her Nikkahnama (Pakistani Marriage Contract). If the Husband gives Talaq he must also tender Haq Meher to his Wife, whereas if the Wife exercises her right of Talaq then she must relinquish her right to Haq Meher.

It is important to note that Shia and Sunni Muslims have different rules for performing a Talaq. Sunni practice requires no witnesses, and allows a husband to end a relationship by saying the triple talaq, whereas Shi’a scholars view the triple talaq (in one sitting or at one time) as a custom, forbidden by Holy Prophet Muhammad, but reinstated by Umar ibn al-Khattab, and thus  forbidden. Sunni scholars agree to the facts, but deem it halal (“lawful”) anyway.

Khula is the right of a woman in Islam to divorce and it means separation from her husband. After divorce, the husband is responsible for the education and maintenance of the children. The children live with the mother till the age of Hizanat which is seven years for son and age of puberty for daughters.

After the age of Hizanat, the children have the right to live with the father or the mother, and their opinion will be considered by the court but will not be taken as conclusive and decisive factor.
A woman seeks a Khula while a man seeks a Talaq. The Iddah period also allows for reconciliation for the husband and wife.

International NGOs to continue functioning in Pakistan for six months

International NGOs to continue functioning in Pakistan for six months

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on 16th June 2015 that all international non-government organizations (INGOs) in the country would be allowed to function for a period of six months within specified areas of operation decided by concerned authorities.

While chairing the high-level meeting at the PM House to discuss matter related to INGOs present in the country. The Prime Minister announced the decision. Further, it was decided in the meeting that all INGOs were required to complete the process of fresh registration with the government within three months.

Few days ago Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan said that all international NGOs will have to respect Pakistani laws. He further said that “We have proof that some NGOs were working on foreign agendas against Pakistan’s national interest for the past few years. There were several intelligence reports”.

It is also decided now that no non-governmental organisation (NGO) working against the country’s national interest would be allowed to continue working in Pakistan. The Government of Pakistan just want to regulate the system. Do not want to shut down NGOs that follow Pakistani laws.

Before that the authorities sealed off the offices of Save the Children, saying the charity was “working against the country”. Officials said the government ordered the NGO’s expatriate staff to be sent back to their countries within 15 days.

Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan said several NGOs were only registered for Islamabad. Some NGOs based in Islamabad started operating in Balochistan and FATA without permission and spreading false news. Several are operating without even being registered.

Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan also said that no compromise would be made on national interest, and that no pressure would be accepted in this regard. He said that the government would soon bring forward a policy to bring NGOs under a defined scope and charter.

The Inter-Ministerial Committee, headed by Tariq Fatemi, would provide the guidelines including rules, processes and draft legislation for streamlining the work of the INGOs in Pakistan in the future.
