C. Bahai and Jewish Marriages
Bahai marriages are solemnized by religious officials of the community which has a system of certification of marriages very similar to the nikah-namas issued by the kazis in Muslim marriages (see above).
The Jewish system of solemnization is also similar to that of the Muslims. Jewish priests known as Rabbis solemnize marriages and issue certificates. There is no system among either the Bahais or the Jews of transmission of marriage records to any authority under control of the State. There is no legal requirement, or practice, of registering the Bahai or the Jewish marriages with the State registry.
