Pakistan’s Sindh province assembly has passed a landmark bill allowing Hindu widows to remarry. The bill was initially moved by Nand Kumar Goklani of the functional Pakistan Muslim League in the assembly.

The Bill allows Hindu widows to remarry out of their own free will but only after a period of six months has lapsed after their husband’s death.

The bill also grants Hindu women the right to file a petition for dissolution of a marriage if they want to terminate their marriage. Sindh Law Minister Ziaul Hasan Lanjar said the bill had been passed unanimously.

Majority of the Hindu population in Pakistan reside in the Sindh province, including urban areas like Hyderabad, Sukkur and Karachi.
