The Divorce Amendment Act 95 of 1996 In his article in 1997 DR 49 Ashraf Mahomed claimed that: 'The Divorce Amendment Act is geared toward creating a harmonious co-existence between our secular laws and various religious and cultural affiliations. With this move: our legislature has taken religious freedom and individual human rights to new heights.' Ever since I read the article, I have been wondering whether the writer's enthusiasm about its effect on religious freedom and human rights has not carried his judgment to heights which may not be warranted.
