The women, family and community development ministry is in the process of drafting a proposal paper for the establishment of a committee to study the feasibility of mandating pre-marriage courses for non-Muslim couples.

Deputy Minister Aiman Athirah Sabu said the committee would propose suitable programmes to be presented to the Cabinet in the near future.

She said this when winding up the debate session on the motion of thanks for the royal address in the Dewan Negara today. 

She was replying to Aknan Ehtook, who proposed that non-Muslim couples undergo a pre-marriage course before tying the knot.

The Dewan Negara sitting continues tomorrow.
