Punjab makes “Khatam-e-Nabuwat ” Oath compulsory in marriage certificate.

Couples in the country’s most populous area, Punjab, would be required to swear an oath at the time of nikah to testify to their belief in the finality of Prophethood (SAW) under a modification to the West Pakistan Rules under the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance 1961.

According to local media reports, a provincial cabinet meeting presided over by Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar approved a change to the West Pakistan Rules under the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance 1961.

With the change, a section was introduced requiring the groom and bride to take an oath at the moment of Nikah to testify to their belief in the finality of Prophethood (PBUH).

Some applauded the action, but others questioned its motives, claiming that the legislation and the Constitution contain pertinent laws and phrases about faith.
