Abstract

The aim of this article is to initiate public information dissemination of the RA 11596, a Law that prohibits child marriage and impose fines for those who violate it. The subject of the Law seems to bring critical consequences in the Muslim community like the people in the province of Sulu. The content of the RA 11596 could have been alarming since the Muslims are following their customary law in Islam states that a girl can decide to marry at the age of puberty during the first menstrual period. The RA 11596 is an age-based law pointing out that a girl below 18 years old is not allowed to marry and even impose fines for those who are connected with the marriage. Alternatively, MSU-Sulu offers the service to disseminate the information for holistic understanding of the Tausug about the content of the RA 11596. The role of MSU-Sulu is very essential to initiate strategies in coordination with OPAPP, Provincial and Barangay LGUs to sustain the needs, resources and manpower to make the dissemination successful.
