Yup that is the score in Subashini. Started in the High Court then to the Court of Appeal and as we reached the end of 2007, the Federal Court gave the decision on a 2-1 majority even though it is now settled law that the convert husband should seek divorce in the Civil Courts so that the non Muslim wife can seek legal redress, however what is more problematic now is that the Husband can now convert his son without informing the mother. This Federal Court's decision is absurd and without any basis and must be condemned.

In order to set things right, the Malaysian Parliament must addressed and debate this issue of conversion of one parent converting a child against the will of another or it will continue to be unfair to the other party. Or a review by a full court of seven justices in deciding something that is so fundamental on religious conversion.
