Bangladesh’s parliament has passed a landmark bill aimed at protecting the rights of the Hindu community members, especially women from marriage-related cheating.
The new law — the Hindu Marriage Registration Bill 2012 — aims to provide legal and social protection to members of the Hindu community.
State Minister for Law, Justice and parliamentary Affairs Qamrul Islam moved the bill that was passed by voice vote, bdnews24.com reported.
He said the law was being formulated since there was no such law in the country to register the marriages of Hindus.
