Adam Haji Peer Muhammad Issac Sait vs Pattakkarantavita Kunkan
The case raises interesting discussions about identifiable membership within a tavazhi from a legal standpoint. The petitioner, who identified as christian on the date of the will, was challenged by lower courts on the issue of conversion and continued membership and property rights within the tavazhi. The verdict against the petitioner rested on a scrutiny of the language of the will which did not explicitly state the gift as to the tavazhi but to individual members.
