The construction activities comprise various building performances, such as concreting, plastering, paving, bricklaying, painting and other related works. The local people are not much interested to work at this sector. Consequently, Malaysia requires hiring more foreign workers in order to continue the growing demands of building schemes. However, the working situations for those migrant workforces are often challenging but these do not hinder them from working. The aim of this study is to identify and examine some difficulties which are facing by migrant workers in Malaysia. The qualitative method has been used in gathering and analysing of data of this research. This research has found that migrant workers do not achieve some basic legal and humanitarian rights at construction sector in Malaysia. It is submitted that a proper step should be taken to minimise the identified challenges to protect the rights of migrant workers and to influence them to continue working at construction industries in Malaysia.</p> Moin Uddin Md Salah Uddin Md.

Hence, the public debate remerged as regard to this issue when Liberians in their numbers migrated and fled the Civil War (1989-2003) seeking refuge in other nations, where most of them were compelled and constrained to acquire another nationality. Some Liberians view that it should be absolutely allowed referred therein as (The Absolutists), other group of Liberians opine that it should be allowed with certain restrictions (The Restrictionists). In view of this, the subject was listed among other things by the Constitutional Review Committee for a possible amendment as it is impliedly prohibited by the Constitution under article 28. While waiting for the amendment through referendum in 2023 after the first attempt failed to meet threshold in 2020 as declared by the NEC, the new dual citizenship law legalizing the practice had been respectively passed and signed the Legislature and President. The article aims at discussing the public debates on and positive and negative socioeconomic implications of dual citizenship in Liberia. This work adopts qualitative research method, where it relies on previous published materials and public debates from local intellectual centres, social medial discussions and radio stations’ talks shows on the subject. It is concluded that the new law may open doors of socioeconomic and political opportunities for Liberians by birth with different nationalities and neutralized citizens to comfortably invest in the country’s economy, and of course, may help to change the development narratives of Liberia.</p> Mory Sumaworo Copyright (c) 2022 Mory Sumaworo http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2022-12-29 2022-12-29 8 4 25 36 10.55327/jaash.v8i4.280 INHERITANCE RIGHT OF ORPHANED GRAND CHILDREN: BANGLADESH PERSPECTIVES https://aarcentre.com/ojs3/index.php/jaash/article/view/285 <p>The dilemma of inheritance of grandchildren from the pre-deceased child is one of the most critical areas of Islamic law. According to the classical interpretations of Islamic law, any son of the deceased in general excludes such grandchildren. However, many states brought certain changes into the existing format of Islamic law of succession so as to shield such grandchildren from total exclusion. Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, Morocco, Pakistan and Bangladesh are remarkable for binging changes in this particular area. Pakistan brought a significant change in 1961 by section 4 of the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance (MFLO), which is a milestone event in the history of reformation of Islamic law. In Bangladesh the same law become accepted through the promulgation of the Laws Continuance Enforcement order, 1971’.Section of the MFLO affected the whole structure of Islamic Law of Succession.

For this purpose the author tries to show the injustices to some heirs and the provisions of Islamic law of succession which have been violated caused by the section 4 of MFLO and lastly the author has set up a method that ensures the right of the orphaned grandchildren neither violating the Islamic rule nor excluding any heir. It is a qualitative research.</p> Md Mostofa Kazi Sonia Tasnim Md. Zahidul Islam Copyright (c) 2022 Md Mostofa, Kazi Sonia Tasnim, Md.
