LAHORE: The Punjab Assembly, which is about to complete its constitutional tenure on May 31, has failed to frame rules of business to regulate the marriages of the province’s Hindu community, Pakistan Today learnt Wednesday. He lamented that the Punjab Assembly was about to complete its term but the rulers had not paid heed to a genuine issue being faced by the Hindu community. Hindu MPA Kanji Ram said he made untiring efforts to frame rules of business in the Punjab Assembly for regulating marriages of the Hindu community. It is worth mentioning here that the National Assembly passed the landmark Hindu Marriage Act 2017 on March 21, 2017, which was the first elaborate personal law of the Hindu community. However, the absence of rules of business has made it hard for the Hindus, especially women, to regulate their marriages.
