Lahore man sent to jail on judicial remand for hiding his first marriage from second wife.
According to second wife, Arfah Naz, Rehmat Ali didnt tell her about his first marriage and she got married with him believing that he is single.
However, Arfah has filed a case FIR against Rehmat at the Shahdara police station.
She further demanded that Rehmat should be punished for deceiving her.
Section 6(5) of the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance, 1961 states that a man is required to submit written permission from his first wife if he wishes to marry another woman. If a man is found guilty of violating the law, then he may be imprisoned for a year.
Earlier in 2019, a Lahore court sentenced a man to 11 months in prison for getting married for the second time without the permission of his first wife. A fine of Rs250,000 has been imposed on him too.
