PONDA: All Goa Ittehad Ul-Jammiatul Muslmeen President Mullam Xec Abbas said that he cannot comment on the SC decision. He said that the original Goan Muslims follow the Portuguese civil code and register their marriages with sub-registrar. Therefore, he said, in case of divorce too, they will have to follow the civil code by instituting matrimonial proceedings in court for divorce. This being the case in Goa, he said, the SC judgement does not introduce anything new in Goa. He said that talaq cannot be practised in Goa; it is practised in other parts of India.
