Whose right is it to have custody of a minor boy
Q. Whose right is it to have custody of a minor boy of 9 years when divorce has taken place? The mother is a Deeni-inclined woman while the father is thoroughly immoral. He indulges in all the acts of fisq and fujoor one can think of.
A. Although it is the father’s right to have custody of his 9 year old son, in the circumstances custody should be denied. If the child does not have a pious paternal grandfather or a pious paternal uncle to care for him, the mother should retain custody.
