Personal law can`t impede Muslims from adoption: SC
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday said that Muslims can adopt a child under the juvenile justice law as its enforcement could not be impeded by the Muslim personal law.
The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam said that the rules framed under juvenile justice law were an enabling provision which is applicable to all religions and communities and the same could not be frustrated by personal religious beliefs.
The court said this on a petition by social activist Shabnam Hashmi, who had sought the framing of guidelines by the adoption of children by the people belonging to all religions and communities.
