Im Divorcing U

A Malaysian Muslim senator, Datuk Kamaruddin Ambok, has been fined $195 by a sharia court for attempting to divorce his wife through an SMS text message and a voicemail message. Kamaruddin was in violation of Section 124 of the Islamic Family Law (Federal Territory) Act 1984, which states "any man who divorces his wife by pronouncement of talaq in any form outside the Court and without the permission of the Court commits an offence".
