Divorce Proceedings Under Syariah Courts

Recently, a high profile case was reported involving Emilia Hanafi, the ex-wife of businessman Datuk SM Faisal SM Nasimuddin Kamal, who was sentenced to seven days in prison for contempt of court after disobeying an order by unilaterally rescheduling the visitation dates of her three children. This has brought on conversations about the complexity of divorce proceedings within the Syariah legal system. So we first unpack this, and the gaps that exist. Next, we discuss whether reforms are needed and what's needed to be done to push for it.
