Major ruling for unwed mothers

Kochi: In a major ruling, the Kerala High Court has said that any person had the right to not mention the name of father in identification documents.

The order is a major relief for the children of unwed mothers and rape victims.
Allowing the petiton filed seeking to expunge and remove the father’s name from the birth certificate, the court directed issuance of a certificate showing the mother’s name only as a single parent.

The court said that a child of an unwed mother is also a citizen of our country, and nobody can infringe any of his/her fundamental rights, which are guaranteed in our Constitution. He/she is a son/daughter of not only the unwed mother but this great country.
