COCHI – Responding to the pressing need for diverse representation in the state’s legal sphere, particularly to counter communalism, a Muslim organisation in Kerala has taken proactive measures.

It identified a crucial gap in the representation of Muslims in the judicial apparatus of the state and recently qualified and enrolled 50 Islamic scholars as advocates in Kerala High Court.

The southern state has a significant Muslim population and a commendable literacy rate in the community.

The organisation embarked on a training initiative for law graduates after recognising the need for informed legal practitioners well-versed in Shariah-related matters.

This initiative aimed to bridge the gap in Muslim representation in the judiciary, ensuring adequate expertise in addressing legal issues pertaining to the Muslim community.

The successful integration of modern education with religious teachings has been a hallmark of Kerala’s educational landscape. Leveraging this trend, the organisation trained the lawyers who are expected to play a pivotal role in advocating the rights and interests of the Muslim community, particularly in matters concerning Islamic Shariah.

The initiative’s significance extends beyond the confines of Kerala, serving as a model for other states grappling with similar challenges. It underscores the importance of nurturing a diverse pool of legal talent equipped to address the complex societal issues facing diverse communities.

The absence of qualified legal representation among Muslims has often resulted in judgements which do not fully consider Shariah principles. By empowering Muslim scholars with legal expertise, this initiative aims to rectify this imbalance and ensure fair and informed judicial outcomes.

As the need for competent legal practitioners among Muslim communities continues to grow, initiatives like these stand as crucial steps towards fostering a more inclusive and equitable legal landscape.
