    Government is planning to bring in a special marriage act for the Sikhs, a long standing demand of the community.
    This was stated by Law and Justice Minister HR Bhardwaj in Rajya Sabha on Monday
    He said the Government has taken note of demands in this regard from various Sikh organisations and "there should not be a problem" in introducing such an act.
    "We will bring it soon," he said replying to supplementaries.
    To a separate question, he said the Government has no plans to make registration of Hindu Marriages compulsory under the law.
    He said the Supreme Court had directed that marriage of all persons should be registered compulsorily in their respective states and the "matter is being carefully examined in its full ramifications."
    Bhardwaj added that the Centre is studying the matter and would not like to rush things as it was an important issue.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
