ISLAMABAD: Justice Amir Hani Muslim has remarked a woman being a Muslim has every right of separation from her spouse if she does not like him and does not want to stay in wedlock with him.
He further remarked: "Court cannot force any one to remain in wedlock. Social inconsistencies give rise to problem too. Court has tried to convince lady and her husband to reconcile. Court cannot pressurize them for reconciliation. Court has its own limits."
He gave these remarks while presiding over a 2-member bench of Supreme Court (SC) during the course of hearing of a case pertaining to dispute between spouses and child maintenance on Monday.
