AKIPRESS.COM - President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev during the video-conference with imams and religious workers of the country on June 15 called not to conduct nikah without the marriage certificate.
The head of state noted that the draft law on punishment of imams conducting such marriages will be developed soon in the country.
"A lot of cases are being observed last times, when men marry married women by making nikah. Most of such marriages are in Tashkent. Therefore, dear imams, the problems of illegally born children by second wives will be on your conscience," Mirziyoyev added.
