Hindu widows of Bangladesh to get share in all property- High Court

Earlier, the law entitled the Hindu widows only to the homestead property of their husband. 

The single judge bench of Justice Miftah Uddin Choudhury pronounced the judgement on Wednesday confirming a lower court’s verdict of 2004 that had ruled that the widow had rights to all the properties of her husband.

Bangladesh Hindu-Buddhist-Christian Oikya Parishad General Secretary Rana Das Gupta hailed the verdict as a landmark judgement and also a safeguard to helpless Hindu widows.

The inheritance rights of a woman on the property of her  husband is guided by the Hindu Women’s Rights to Property Act, 1937 which curtailed Hindu women of their property rights.
