S Deepa, ibu Hindu yang merebut penjagaan anaknya selepas bekas suami menukar agama 2 anak kecil mereka kepada Islam mengharapkan kes sepertinya tidak berulang lagi di Malaysia.

Mengakui tidak berpuas hati dengan keputusan Mahkamah Persekutuan kerana hanya memperoleh hak penjagaan anak perempuan manakala anak lelaki diserahkan kepada bekas suaminya, Izwan Abdullah, Deepa berkata beliau terpaksa akur dengan arahan tersebut.

“Saya harap Malaysia tukar sikap, jangan ada ibu tunggal seperti saya yang tidak ada jawapan, biar kes ini yang terakhir.

“Malaysia tolong berubah. Saya hadapi kesukaran, duit, masalah kerja, semua saya lalui tetapi jawapan sekarang, hanya anak perempuan ada pada saya, anak lelaki dipisahkan daripada saya. Memang tidak adil,” katanya kepada pemberita di Mahkamah Persekutuan di Putrajaya hari ini. Read more

“Divorce and custody of non-Muslim marriages are exclusive jurisdiction of the civil court,” he said in dismissing Izwan Abdullah’s appeal.

Raus said a non-Muslim spouse could not abuse his conversion to Islam to escape his obligation. Read more

Mahkamah Persekutuan hari ini memutuskan Mahkamah Sivil perlu menentukan hak penjagaan kanak-kanak yang memeluk agama Islam.

Panel 5 hakim diketuai Tan Sri Raus Sharif berkata, perkahwinan bukan Islam tidak dibubarkan apabila salah satu pihak memeluk Islam.

“Perceraian dan hak penjagaan anak bagi perkahwinan bukan Islam adalah bidang kuasa eksklusif mahkamah sivil,” katanya ketika menolak rayuan Izwan Abdullah.

Raus berkata, pasangan bukan Islam tidak boleh menyalahgunakan faktor memeluk agama Islam bagi melarikan diri obligasinya.

Panel hakim itu bagaimanapun, memutuskan dalam kes ini, S. Deepa akan terus mempunyai hak penjagaan ke atas anak perempuannya Sharmila manakala, Izwan terhadap Mithran. Read more
