HIGH COURT RULES HINDU MUM LOH SIEW HONG'S THREE KIDS' UNILATERAL CONVERSION TO ISLAM 'LAWFUL'
In delivering the judgment, High Court judge Datuk Wan Ahmad Farid Wan Salleh said the welfare of the children must take precedence as was raised in the Federal Court’s 2018 decision in M. Indira Gandhi’s case.
In his findings, the learned judge said there was no evidence before the court that neither the three children have reverted to the Hindu religion nor stopped professing the religion of Islam under their mother’s custody.
“Having regard to all the circumstances of the case, there is no evidence before me that the three children are not happy staying with the applicant.
“Therefore, the welfare of the children, within the meaning of Indira Gandhi, dictates that the status quo should remain,” he said.
In Loh’s case, she is contesting her ex-husband’s move to change their three underaged children’s religion from Hinduism to Islam without her knowledge and consent in 2019.
