Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This paragraph exemplifies the "plain language" exposition and citations in the court's reasoning. It features issues in dispute and juridical classifications (indicated above).

180. Muslims are followers of Islam. Muslims consider the Quran their holy book. For their personal relations, they follow the Muslim `personal law' - `Shariat'. The Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937, as already  noticed  above provided, "the rule of decision" in matters pertaining, inter alia, to marriage, dissolution of mar riage including talaq, ila, zihar, lian, khula and mubaraat would be the Mus lim `personal law' - `Shariat', and not, any custom or usage to the contrary. It is therefore, that by a statutory  intervention, customs and usages in conflict with Muslim `personal law', were  done away with, in connection with  `personal  law' matters, in relation to Muslims. The Dissolution of Muslim Marriages Act, 1939 provided, grounds for dissolution of marriage to Muslim women, under Section 2 of the above enactment. Details with reference to 1937 and 1939  legislations, have already been narrated, in Part IV  -  Legislation in India, in the field of Muslim `personal law'. Refe rence may, therefore, be made to Part IV above.


Think about this marvel of "transparency", when next you gird your intellect to translate another Anglo-merican "position paper" (opinion) ...

aaaand that may be as early as this evening or tomorrow after the UK gov't releases version No. 3 of UK outlines plans to break free of European Court jurisdiction after Brexit

by accepting third-country status on "the withdrawal date", 29 March 2019. Thereafter, the EU has asserted, ECJ enforcement will apply only to disputes entered in and contracts concluded by EU28 "persons," when the UK enjoyed membership in the EU.

< wipes tears >

After 29 March 2017, UK and EU may negotiate a NEW! governing treaty.
