Syariah lawyer, Nur Fatihah Azzahra, shared this case on her Facebook page, soliciting views on the problematic family. The 40-year- man and his 20-year-old lover, who also happens to be his daughter, claim that the relationship was consensual.
Shockingly, the wife, who also happens to be the girl’s biological mother, has agreed to sacrifice her marriage to ‘maintain family lineage’. She divorced her husband so that he can marry her daughter.
“Later, the father married the daughter used the syndicate service of marriage, carried out by foreign nationality in Malaysia,” the lawyer wrote.
Even so, the National Registry of Malaysia (JPN) refused to register the newborn baby as the child of the man and his current wife (who is also his biological daughter). According to JPN, they need to consult an Islamic court to determine the child’s bloodline.
“The saddest question is the question of the daughter in the story. She asked why her child was not registered in the name of her father (who is also the child’s grandfather) when we were married?”
