(p.1) 1 Introduction
Religious Freedom under the Personal Law System

Farrah Ahmed

Oxford University Press

This book has important implications for the reform of the personal law system in India. But its findings are likely to prove useful for research and practical problems beyond the Indian context as well. Different jurisdictions use different models of accommodation of religious norms in family law. The terminology relating to different models is imprecise and the terms ‘personal law system’, ‘millet’, and ‘religious alternative dispute settlement’ are sometimes used interchangeably.

Keywords:   personal law, family law, religious doctorine, self-respect, religious norms
