The Tunisian cabinet’s approval of a draft law that provides equal inheritance rights to women has sparked controversy at Egypt’s esteemed Al-Azhar university. The debate has escalated to the extent that Tunisia is now being described as “a non-Islamic country”, whose “system is not Muslim.”
It seems that the draft law, which has not yet been put up for debate in Tunisian parliament, has kept Al-Azhar busier than even the Al-Zaytuna Mosque in Tunis. Senior Al-Azhar officials have not welcomed the Tunisian move as most of the institutions’ officials have voiced their extreme disapproval of it, according to Raseef22.
The inheritance draft law in Tunisia bases its proposal on the premise that “man-made laws set by legislators are civil laws that can be developed in their nature just like other man-made laws that are part of the internal legislative system.” The Tunisian parliament is expected to discuss the draft in the next phase.
