Kerala Muslim Couple Remarries After 29 Years to Safeguard Their Daughters Future

On March 8th, International Women’s Day, a unique wedding took place in the Kasargod district of Kerala. The couple, C Shukkur, a renowned lawyer and actor famous for his role as a lawyer in the Kunchacko Boban-starrer Nna Thaan Case Kodu (Sue Me Then), and Dr Sheena, a former Pro-Vice Chancellor of Mahatma Gandhi University, celebrated their union again, 29 years after their first marriage, in order to ensure their property and assets would go to their three daughters.

Their initial marriage, conducted under Sharia law, as per Muslim Personal Law, meant that their daughters would have only inherited two-thirds of their father’s property, with the remainder going to Shukkur’s brothers in the absence of a male heir. To prevent this, the couple decided to remarry under the Special Marriage Act, which dictates that the Indian Succession Act will govern the succession to the property of any person solemnized under it.

By doing so, the couple ensured that their assets and property would be passed down to their children. This decision not only secures their daughters’ future but also sets an example for others to follow.
