Register Our Marriage campaign is twofold, for that reason. One: lobby for the law to be changed, because it is completely wrong and not fit for purpose. And two: educate the community – all the communities. It’s not just about Muslims; it’s about Hindus, Sikhs and all the others out there, so that they know that, without that piece of paper, they have no rights in marriage.
To spread this message, I’ve been doing road shows around the country and a social media campaign, which is not only growing, but gaining support across all faiths and communities. It is great to see people outside of Islam getting involved.
