What's in a name?
In Malaysia, Muslim children born within 6 months from the date of the parents' marriage are unable to take the name of the fathers, and are instead registered with t
he surname "binti/bin Abdullah...". An indicator to the legitimacy of a child, it leads to serious and often unjust repercussions on the children's emotional wellbeing and their future. What are the origins of this practice and what are the implications? More importantly, can it be changed? Explore these questions and more at our public forum.
